I've just run a Screaming Frog spider against a client's website and it has returned 370 links that are Unsafe Cross-Origin Links. However when I have investigated the links they don't match the description of what an Unsafe Cross-Origin Link should be. They don't have target="_blank" on them and they all point to internal pages.

Example result:

Type        From                        To                          Anchor Text Alt Text    Follow  Target  Rel Path Type       Link Path                                                                   Link Position
Hyperlink   https://www.example.com/    https://www.example.com/                Example     TRUE                Path-Relative   //body/div/header/div[@id='headerTopOuter']/div/div[@id='logoDiv']/p/a[1]   Header
Hyperlink   https://www.example.com/    https://www.example.com/                Example     TRUE                Path-Relative   //body/div/header/div[@id='headerTopOuter']/div/div[@id='logoDiv']/p/a[2]   Header

What is going on here? Why are they being reported as Unsafe Cross-Origin Links and how do I fix them?

  • Have you contacted Screaming Frog to ask them?

  • Not yet, I thought I'd check with the community first.
