Scanning Links

After installing the plugin, you need to scan all posts to find links and their details. It's required to create reports in the plugin dashboard.

To scan links, clink the Scan links now button:

Start scan links in Slim SEO Link Manager

After that, the plugin will refresh and show you the current status of link scanning process:

Link scanning process status

When the link scanning process finishes, the status (admin notice) will disappear and you'll see reports in the plugin dashboard.

Link reports

In case you already ran the link scanning, and you want to scan again, go to the Tools tab and you'll find the Scan links button there:

Run the scan links tool again


The link scanning action will remove all existing link data and scans from the beginning.


If you see the scanning process doesn't finish, please follow these steps:

  • Update Slink SEO Link Manager to the latest version.
  • Deactivate the plugin and reactivate it.
  • Re-scan links

When deactivating the plugin, your data remains. No links are lost or changed.

After scanning links, let's discover the reports.
