What Is Inspyder?

10 Sep

Have you ever looked at Inspyder? You may very well ask, “What is Inspyder?” I learned what it is by good fortune, and want to share that experience with you.

I recently used a free dead link checker to see if I had many dead or broken links. When the checker finished, I discovered that it only checked 2,000 of my links. If I wanted the entire website done, I’d have to pay for it.

I was disappointed to learn that only about 1/3 of my links had been checked. I mentioned the problem and my frustration to a computer-savvy friend, and he said he’d run a broken link check for me on his computer, as he could do the whole thing.

What he discovered was horrifying and very helpful. I have well over 5,000 links on my website, and when the program had finished, it showed a little over 1,000 errors.

We went through them, and found some things that were of no consequence and some things that were simple to correct. For example, if you end a sentence with a live link, do not put a period at the end of that link, because it will show up as an error.

Many of my link problems were with image details (alt text and file name especially) and meta problems (meta title and meta description.) I thought I’d checked all those so carefully, but the program found things I’d missed.

I spent three days checking images, meta, and live links and corrected many errors. One thing that surprised me were errors in the comments, as well as ones in HTML that I still have to search out.

Bottom line: I am sold on the program, and plan to buy my own copy. No, the broken link checker is not free — it costs $59.95 — but I will check my whole site as often as I want. By the time I paid for link checks a few times, I could buy this tool.

It includes so many extra features, causing me to believe that it will be a valuable purchase. So, I began looking into the company to find out more about it.

  1. Hi Fran, Inspyder does sound great. I get so many emails from internet companies offering their products that you don’t always no whether you need it or not. I have had similar experience with other companies offering to scan your website for free and they come back with 20% completed and you must pay for the whole package to complete the task. It can be really off putting.

    Sometimes you don’t know it’s true value until you start using it. I’d like to hear your opinion after a few months of having it available, whether it was worth the purchase. Sounds good in the early stages though. 

    • Yes, your point about true value is certainly on track.  Perhaps I should do an update in about six months.  By then I should know the system pretty well.

  2. I’m not an apple user so using amy of the Inspyder programs wouldn’t post any problem for me. The price point is also affordable and the best thing is that you don’t have to pay monthly which is a big thumbs up clients. Back links plays an important role especially in producing content for affiliate marketing. It’s a big responsibility of any writer to publish a perfectly written content to the readers. As much as possible, we want to be error free so tue audience won’t be turned off with our website. 

    Just a question, how is the customer support for this program? Do they have 24/7 assistance? Thank you for introducing Inspyder which has numerous tools to choose according to your needs and liking. I learned so much in this post.  

    • Good question about customer support.  They have a FAQ section, a user manual, and direct support.  Glad you asked, as I should have included that information in the article.  So, sounds like they have a pretty good help system set up for you.

      I was amazed at how in-depth the program goes.  They even show errors in the HTML section, which are harder than heck to find, but when you do, you know what to change.  

      All in all, I am very pleased with inspyder.

  3. A very good and informative review of inspyder software! I have just started some websites and starting to explore my choices as seo optimization, link checking and everything relating to maintaining my sites. These sound pretty good, one-time fee but I would like to test the software before buying. I consider to buy Moz or seoptimizer, they are pretty expensive but many of my friends work on its industry and prices go pretty easily affordable then. It’s not the secret that high affiliate commissions of SEO tools (like 90% of all IT tools and cloud services) are possible cause if you craft or build something from wood or iron, building $100 products costs lets say $25-40 but creating and maintaining $100 SEO tool or link checker costs barely $5. Know it as a fact, from the view of ex wholesaler of those. However, thanks for a good site and article.

    • I find it is hard to know which is the best tool out there, as there are so many of them.  I understand your desire to test first, especially when it costs a chunk of money.  I was fortunate that my friend, who actually introduced me to the product, had one, and I was very impressed by the amount of information it generated.

      Glad you liked the article.

  4. We’re currently relying on free programs to check for broken links but this article makes me think that maybe it’s time to investigate using a paid program as our website had grown so much over the last couple of month. Thank you for a very detailed and insightful review. Also good to know about the other software packages made by this company as I would always rather use as few suppliers as possible.

    • I believe Inspyder is a great addition to our toolbox.  There are some other tools in there that look useful, too, and it is nice to have them under one “roof.”  Easier than looking all over the ‘net for something that you might have at your fingertips.

  5. This is a very interesting review of Inspydee. I’ve had so many experiences with many companies offering to scan your website for free and at the long run, they end up checking not even up to 30% which always result into you paying for the full package and trust me, this experience I always a annoying. Its good to hear about Inspyder, a broken link checker that allows you check you site as many time as you want and this is offered at a very pocket friendly price of $59.95. This is a good offer for my own opinion and I hope I can get the best out of this broken link checker. My wuestion is how long can this software last or does it need to be renewed? Thanks, this has been helpful.

    • Buy it once and you own it — no renewal fees.  If you own the app, you won’t need another broken link checker.  I was certainly impressed by the job that it did for me.

  6. Well, a big sorry to the apple users,I am not one for it. This is going to be a game changer and I always say that one should have at least one computer savvy friend, they always come in handy at very crucial moment
    Inspyder looks really good. It’s the first time I’m hearing about them though but they seem to have so much goodies to offer here from being able to check backlinks and also to do spell check. That’s really fabulous. Before now, I don’t do any checker but I understand the importance having read your post. Thank you for a good information here.

    • Thanks for your comment.  I do believe Inspyder is a good addition to our tool box, whether we buy one of their apps or several.  If you want more than one, that “bunch” feature is nice, because it will give you a discount on the price.  

  7. This would not just help my website with more credibility and effectiveness, it would also help me to get more quality to the website since I know I have got everything covered all in just one app. Inspyder seems to be a product of great creativity and an excellent initiative that would help with making my life much more easier. I would definitely try it out. I like the automation that comes with it and the various other unique features. The one time payment is a great option to me and I will definitely try this out. Thank you

    • I think you will really like it.  It does a very thorough job.  It might keep you busy fixing the errors, but it will be worth it.
