Crawling can be left to try and scan as much of a website as it can access, or you can be limit it to only crawl to a certain depth.


Scan depth checks only apply to the main domain being crawled

How does Sitemap Creator determine depth?

Sitemap Creator determines the depth of a URL by looking at the number of path components it is made up of, excluding the document name if possible.


Configuring a scan depth

  1. From the Project Properties dialogue, select the General category
  2. Check the Limit crawl depth option
  3. Enter the maximum level that Sitemap Creator will scan


Scan depth is taken from base domain, not the starting address
