Simple HTTP Monitoring with Web Sniffer
Looking for a quick way to evaluate the basics of your Joomla website without having to download or install SEO plugins or extensions? Try one that’s based on the web! Web-sniffer.net can be accessed from your browsers, so it will be performing its task straight from its website – no need to activate extensions or plugins!
Simply put, Web-sniffer.net is designed to catch the server requests and responses and show them to you. It works even on HTTPs sites. After putting in the URL, the site will give you information on three main things, namely:
- The HTTP Request Header;
- The HTTP Response Header; and
- Both decoded and encoded content.
There are different request methods that you can use. This includes GET, TRACE, POST, or HEAD. These modes will interact with different user-agents of your choice, the most common being Safari, IE, Chrome, and Firefox, which are all pre-built. Just be mindful of the specific versions of the browsers because it takes time for the site to emulate newer ones. The SEO tool is limited that way.
It does make up for that limited, however, by offering a simple SEO tool for checking basic site information. It doesn’t give you the same on-hand perspective as Google Webmaster, but it does give extra features, depending on the user-agent you’re using. It’s highly recommended as a must-use tool for express HTTP monitoring, which you’ll need to do from time to time when working to improve your Joomla SEO.
