Hi I am having issues with the simplest web crawler.  It does not return any results at all. I have no rules, just a simple web crawl out of the box. What am I doing wrong here?

    hi @Amiro - so that website does not have much content and it is a very heavily-stylized site. My guess is that the site is blocking very basic crawlers like "Crawl Web". You're better off using Get Page, grabbing URLs, and so on.

    Or it could be related to the https problem that came up in the other thread as well.  At this point I think Crawl Web operator is not a totally reliable option. Using Get Page within some kind of loop is probably a better alternative.
