Test result report

After each test a report will be generated to give you the information you want to see. Is my URLs working as they should? You will get a clear picture of the situation and you will also get the needed information to fix the problems you may have. There is also easy to rerun the same test and be able to see if you score has been better after your fixes for examples. Hey... "score"? What is "score" in this context? It is a number between 0 to 100 that we will rate your test result. If you get score 100, all URLs in the test works and returns expected response. If you have failing URLs your score will get lower. We will categories the URL responses into 5 categories:

  • Failing URLs
  • Temp redirected URLs
  • Redirected URLs
  • Successful URLs
  • Other URLs

More information about each type of response and tips how to fix them will be described in other articles. Lets us start go through the report information.

 Diagrams

ExperiorTools test report diagrams.

Circle diagram

The first is a circle diagram showing the 5 categories and how many URLs that is each category. The greenish categories is successed URLs. And the reddish is unsuccessful URLs that you should look into and try to fix.

Column diagram

The column diagram will contain information of what the current test result is and other sub reports. You have the possibility to rerun a URL test and when you do that the reports will be grouped so that you can see how your progress is. If you only have run URL test you will only see 2 columns. One for the current URL test result and the goal column that tries to give you a hint of what your goal should be. Your goal should be 100. You can use your mouse and hover over the differnet columns to see more information.

 Action buttons

ExperiorTools test report action buttons.

To simplify for you we have put some action buttons that could be useful.

Copy report

Sometimes you may not want to rerun the test, but you want to copy the test URLs and maybe add or remove URLs before you run the test again. Use this action to copy the URLs used in the current test so you could run a new test and modify the URLs before you run test again.

Rerun test

You can use this action if you have fixed some or all of your URL problems and want to run the test again to verify that URL works as expected.

Delete this test result

If you use this action the current test report will be deleted. If the present report does not have siblings, the test result report will be deleted. But if there is sibling reports, only the present report will be deleted and leave all the others.

Download result (CSV)

Google Webmaster Tools and other tools have a export data function like this. You can export the report test result with URLs and other information to a CSV file. There are many tools that can import this kind of CSV files. 

Example: SEO Manager for EPiServer CMS.

Related reports

If you have more then one report connected together you can easily jump between them to see the different test results. This function is only shown/visable if there is any other reports that you can navigate to.

Elipsed time

"Report took [X time] to generate". This number tells you how long time it took for ExperiorTools to test all your URLs. So if your test took 1 minute and 30 seconds to generate, you next rerun will approximately take the same time.

Category tabs

ExperiorTools test report tabs.

Each tested URLs will be placed in one of the 5 tabs. The tab has a name and representing type of response that the URL has responsed when requested during the test request. You will also see the number of URLs in each tab and how many procentage that is.

Each tab has also a download CSV button that you could use to download only the URLs in the present tab. This could be helpful if you want to export failing URLs so that you could import these in your CMS and handle them in more correct way or just send them to a developer or technicion to handle them.

Failing

ExperiorTools test report failing tab.

Here you can find all the URLs that responsed a error in some way during the test run. You could find responses like:

  • Unautherized (Http status: 401).

  • Not found (Http status: 404)
  • Requested timeout (Http status: 408)
  • Internal server error (Http status: 500)
