How does Silktide choose which pages are tested?

We conduct a breadth-first scan of the first 125 pages in each website, starting from their homepage.

Pages are chosen as follows:

  1. Pages with fewer forward slashes in their URL are tested first. e.g.
    example.com/page
    would be tested before
    example.com/page/subpage
  2. Where pages have the same number of slashes, the pages which were encountered first on each page are tested first. e.g. links displayed at the top of your homepage, followed by links lower down, and so on.

Collectively we have found this has the effect of tending to test high-level pages first, before going deeper into a website.
