About the CruftFinder
One of the first steps that any SEO will take when starting work on a site is to perform an audit and begin cleaning up anything that can potentially be harming the site’s search engine rankings. This can include removing junk URLs and low quality pages, otherwise known as, ‘Cruft.’ Typically, this process is done manually, can take a lot of time and effort, and often requires that the user know what they’re looking for. Here at Inflow, we decided to create a tool that could speed up the process and make it simple enough that even a novice could run it. Introducing, the CruftFinder. The tool queries Google for your domain, searching specifically for various queries, titles, content, and URL strings that are often associated with cruft. We’ve even set it up so that you can find cruft specific to major eCommerce platforms including Shopify, WooCommerce, and Magento.
