Imports fail and freeze

You may wonder why a lot of the urls you try to import fail?

This can have several reasons:

  1. It requests URLs that are behind a login wall and you are not logged in to that particular service at the moment.
  2. Services block your requests temporarily because you try to fetch a lot of them (e.g. lots of google results)
  3. The page is not reachable anymore

How to solve when your import freezes:

Especially for reason 2 you can retry the download

  1. Go to "advanced settings" which you find next to the "start import" button
  2. Check "include previously failed urls"
  3. Re-run the import
