The tool runs over six billion webpages every 24 hours and the index updates between 15 to 30 minutes later.

Adsbot is almost as effective as Google’s crawling bot. Third parties recommend it for its effectiveness and useful tools.

How Does Adsbot Crawl Your Website?

Adsbot is crawling your website and making notes of outbound links. Once it gains the links, it adds them to our extensive database. Every once in a while, it re-crawls websites to check the status of previous links. If you have a 404 error, Adsbot detects it.

Re-crawling helps you find broken or ineffective links. Because they hurt your chances to rank on search engines, the tool is invaluable.

The only storage that Adsbot obtains is through links. Our crawler does not collect or store any other reports about your website. If you have ads, it does not affect them. It is also invisible to Google Analytics and does not affect the traffic on your website.

Does Adsbot Follow robots.txt Rules?

Adsbot follows robots.txt rules.

We strictly respect robots.txt. It allows and disallows the rules that you put in place.

How Do You Control Adsbot on Your Webpage?

Adsbot follows your website’s robots.txt file. You do not have to worry about it breaking rules as it crawls your page. You are in command of where it goes and when it goes there.

Adjust the frequency of Adsbot’s visits by setting the minimum acceptable delay between two sequential rules from our bot in your robots.txt file:

 User-agent: adsbot
 Crawl-Delay: [value] 

Crawl-Delay calculates by the second. Choose it to delay your crawl time to the number of seconds you want. 

If you want Adsbot to stop visiting your site, put the following code in your robots.txt file.txt file:

 User-agent: adsbot
 Disallow: / 

Adsbot may need time to pick up changes in your robots.txt file. Each of the changes is made before each next scheduled crawl.

Please be aware that Adsbot will crawl your page if your robot.txt has errors. Monitor the bot’s effectiveness, and check in on it every once in a while. If you notice it overlooking your commands, there may be a mistake in your text. Make changes in your text bit by bit, and through the process of elimination, you will find the error.

This is an excellent tool for monitoring your ranking and developing an online marketing plan. SEO and digital ads are much easier with a sophisticated tool at your fingertips.
