A1 Website Search Engine Description
If you want to look up files on your computer using the built-in Windows search engine, you might notice it can take a little too long to get results. This happens only in the case when files and folders are not indexed, meaning your operating system doesn’t know what it’s equipped with until it indexes each item. The same goes for an Internet search, with the smooth flow being delivered thanks to well-built and indexed targets. What’s more, you can use apps like A1 Website Search Engine to create such lists of items for your own websites.

While the scan process is in motion, a progress panel displays gathered data in real time, with fields for internal sitemap URLs, external links, as well as jobs done and waiting in the crawler engine. Before triggering the process, you can tweak a few settings to narrow down results for more practicality.
Analyze, edit and sort gathered data
You’re automatically taken to the analysis counterpart. This panel provides thorough, editable details regarding, core and extended data, as well as a decent amount of types to view looked up files. Amongst others, you can launch a basic browser view or validate W3C for HTML and CSS.
