How to find 5xx errors on your website

Regular technical audits of your website are important. Servers can have problems, links can change, and there can be many other things that can have a negative impact on the search engine rankings of your website. Finding 5xx errors (and other errors) is very easy with the website audit tool in SEOprofiler:

When you create a new SEOprofiler account, the first project will be created automatically.

Step 2: The report will be created automatically
