    How can I find out how many pages a website has?????

    I want to build a website that rivals one of my competitors and I need an estimate of the number of pages that their site has.


    Thanks for any help you can provide

    Search for site:theirdomain.com and you will see how many pages they have indexed so far. You can't really tell exactly how many pages they have without spidering their site with something like Xenu

    I thought I was the only one who used Yahoo to check my links. :)

    Yep XENU or Screaming Frog Spider is the way to go.

    Go to Google and do a query of:
    site:www.site.com
    or site:site.com

    Or go to YSE and just put it the domain name :)
    You'll get different results however :)

    One other way would be to look at the sitemap.xml file
    (you might get lucky if that site has one)
    www.site.com/sitemap.xml

    Ya scraping sitmap gives accurate results instead of checking the indexed pages in SE.
