Internal vs. External in Siteimprove Inventory Section

This article applies to: Siteimprove, Web Accessibility


Siteimprove may miss assets that are linked within your site if they don’t meet Siteimprove’s definition of an ‘internal’ asset, which includes pages, documents, PDFs, media files, links, and other digital assets.

Siteimprove will only scan an asset that contains the domain in the URL structure for the site you selected.

Examples

  • Internal PDF: If your index URL domain is it.cornell.edu, Siteimprove will scan it.cornell.edu/maps.pdf. 
  • External PDF: If your index URL domain is it.cornell.edu, Siteimprove will not scan a document that has the domain dfa.cornell.edu/maps.pdf. 

To add external documents to your Siteimprove crawl, read how to review external documents in Siteimprove.
