HTML Testing & URL Verification tool with AutoHotKey and Excel

URL verificationURL Verification

Working in Internet Marketing I’m frequently involved with reviewing new and active web pages.   When I started the process was manual and quite time consuming so I wrote a script to automate much of it.  This video demonstrates it in action.  It requires you to navigate in IE (yes, I know…) and uses Microsoft COM to rip all the URLs by web scraping with AutoHotkey from the active page and dumps them into a spreadsheet for URL verification.  It also pulls things like the title of the page, # of words on the page, most popular words,  Values for name and ID elements as well as the actual URL and outerHTML.

The script also allows you to choose your overall area which is great because there is probably a template that your company uses (and you’ll probably want to exclude items that are part of site navigation, not unique to that particular page.
