The problem with this is that it would only work for those sites where they've got an organized directory structure. But so many sites we see don't have that, in which case you still need to use something like Xenu to figure out the site's structure.

True.


For the example I used a sitemap but we usually crawl a site first. Problem is then, how do you quickly show what those 10K+ URL's map to? Hence the Excel trick :)
