According to Wordpress I have less than 100 pages on my website. Why does your scanner say that I have more than 100?

Wordpress differentiates between pages (static “one-off” pages like ‘about’, ‘contact’, ‘privacy policy’ etc.) and posts (actual blog posts).

The Cookiebot scanner scans your website in-depth to identify all cookies and other tracking technology in use. Since blog posts can also contain cookies and trackers - for example in images or in embedded videos - we need to scan not only the static pages but also all the blog posts. For this reason, the number of pages according to Wordpress and the number of pages according to the Cookiebot scanner will likely differ. If you are in doubt about how many pages your website has, you can get a non-binding quote here (including the subscription price, the number of subpages and an attached URL list of all identified pages): https://www.cookiebot.com/goto/quote-input/
