Why are there already remove link rules applied to my site?

Modified on: Tue, 2 Jan, 2024 at 7:45 PM

When looking at settings on your site, you may see that remove link rules have already been added. 

Once you become a customer of Siteimprove, our team will configure your account.
This includes manually checking pages found on your sites and removed links that do not require checking.

Examples of pages that may already have this rule in place are:

  • Duplicate Pages (i.e. pages with the same content as a page we already check)
  • Unwanted content as requested by the customer
  • Archived pages
  • Print-friendly pages
  • Sorting options on a website database
  • Sub-domain or sub-sites that should not be included
  • Events Calendars

Excluding unwanted content improves the efficiency of the crawl and reduces the cost of the check.

Your organization’s administrators and account owners can also create and remove exclusions.

To see a list of the exclusion on your website go to Settings > Authentication and security > Site content settings > go to applicable site > Remove links:

You can learn more about Site Content Settings in this article.
