    Hi Paul

    The issue with Jonah's site is a site-specific issue, it's not a bug, so the cause of the issue on your site could be different.

    Please contact our Live Support here so they can have a closer look at your site and help you with your query and if it will require things those are out of the scope of Live Support, they'll create a separate ticket for you.

    This will also allow us to collect all information about your query in the same place, and give us access to tools like Support Login so we can access to your site and have a look at it.

    Kind regards,

    I've noticed with my host, SiteGround, they don't "like" the external scans much, so when I manually run them, they almost always timeout and fail, BUT, if I schedule the scans to run at midnight, they usually do complete.

    Give that a try.

    Hey joJonah^,

    Hope you had a great day!

    I found the problem on your site, since this is more complex I pinged our developer to have a closer look on this issue. In the meantime I found a way you can follow to run the SEO checkup. In this way, it is working fine from my end, hope it will also work on your end.

    Step 1: Run a SEO scan:

    Step 2: Go to the SmartCrawl dashboard page:

    Step 3: You will see the progress here, wait until it completed, it will take 4 - 5 minutes maybe.

    Let me know if you have any problem regarding this issue.

    Best Regards, Ari
