An Admin role is required to create a new site for crawl and analysis in DubBot. If you do not see "Settings" in the top navigation of DubBot, you do not have an Admin role. If this is the case and you need to add a Site, please chat DubBot support so that we can work with your organization to determine the best path forward.

Select Settings in the top navigation.

Sites is the default panel open. If you navigate to any other panel within Settings, you can always access the Sites settings from the left navigation in the Settings panel.

Enter the Site Name. The Site Name displays on the Dashboard, in the Site switcher, and email notifications.

Next, use the Crawler Type drop down to select the type of site that you would like to create.

There are four different options for the type of site that you create.

The options are:

  • Default (Follow site hierarchy starting at URL)

  • Full Domain (Crawl everything on the domain starting at URL)

  • Sitemap

  • List of URLs - which can be made manually or you can upload a CSV

The Default option is the most common Site type. The Default option allows users to crawl a whole site or a specific folder off of a site and allows users to setup folder and page exclusions for a site.

Learn more about these Site Crawler options. Please email DubBot support or contact us via the app if you need help determining what the best configuration option is for your site.

The Crawl Depth Limit is the maximum number of levels deep the crawler will go before stopping the crawl. Generally, 10 is sufficient, but this number is customizable.

The Page Limit is an approximation of how many pages the crawler will crawl before stopping. This allows administrators to put in an upper limit for page inventory. Leave blank or '0' for no limit.

Select Create to save your site. If the Enable site for checking box is checked, the site is now in the queue to crawl.
