This article explains how Siteimprove's tools determine internal and external inventory, including pages, documents, media files, links, and other digital assets.

Internal

The link contains your domain name in the URL structure. 

For example, on the website siteimprove.com, the following links are considered internal: 

http://siteimprove.com/work/quality 
http://www.siteimprove.com/maps.pdf 
http://downlaod.siteimprove.com/file.pdf

External

The link does not contain your domain name in the URL. 

For example, on the website siteimprove.com, the following links are considered external:

http://planning.com/work/quality
http://www.planning.com/maps.pdf
http://downlaod.planning.com/file.pdf
