What is this?
Sitebeam provides an easy option for comparing any two websites, or the same website at different times side by side, like so:
All test results can be compared and explored in this manner. If you wish to compare more than two websites, see Comparing many websites in a dashboard.
How to compare two websites
- View the first website report you wish to compare.
- Click the Compare button near the top left of the screen.
- Select the website you wish to compare with. If you have a lot of websites, you can type part of its name into the box provided to search through the available sites. Once you click on a website, select the date of the report you wish to compare against below. Click OK to start comparing.
Exploring a comparison
Simply explore a report as normal to compare any aspect of it side-by-side.
Returning to normal view
To stop comparing, click the Compare button near the top left of the screen, and then click Clear in the window that appears.
We recommend a reasonable screen resolution for comparing websites: 1024×768 at a minimum, higher resolutions will allow you to see more at any one time.
You can only compare reports that you’ve already run. If you want to be able to compare a site before and after a redesign for example, you should run like-for-like reports before and after, or Sitebeam won’t be able to compare them.
