    Lost On How To Use WGET

    Sitepoint Members,
    On this page
    https://support.google.com/webmaster.../2600725?hl=en
    Google writes "Double-check that your pages are available and clean"
    It suggests using Wget or Curl. How do you use Wget?
    I got as far as here
    http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/
    which says to download Wget go here
    http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/wget/ whicj is a long list .
    How do I download it? Once it's downloaded, how do I run it?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Do I take it from your confusion that you're a Windows user? If so, then you want this download page:

    http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/wget.htm

    However, it appears to be a command-line tool, and I'm not familiar with Windows command line, so if you need further help, hopefully somebody else can offer that.

    Edit:

    I've just found this tutorial, which might help:
