Inspecting website for SEO elements

Once the scan is created, you can start it by clicking the "Start" button. You can use the "Pause" button to pause the scan and "Start" button to resume. When the scan has some data, the "Options" button is disabled, and it will be disabled unless you click the "Restart/Reset content" button. However, the "Clone" button is enabled in the paused or finished state, you can click it to view scan options. Also, it is safe to resume the scan if it has paused accidentally in such circumstances as power outages.
