"If you are building Umbraco sites without SEO checker you are doing it wrong."
This took way to long but we are glad that we can finally announce SEOChecker V2 Beta.
In the previous version only property editors were Angular base. For v2 the whole UI is re-written and is Angular based now. We are also using the Umbraco components, so the whole UI feels more Umbraco now.
Social is not a direct ranking factor in Google, but the more people are talking about your site it's more likely people link to your pages which is a ranking factor. So we've added social media support. Not only we render correct metadata for Facebook and Twitter, but we also added a property editor that helps you edit social metadata and allows you to preview the social snippet.
If you have used previous versions of SEOChecker you know that a lot of inbound link errors are coming from bots that try to hack your site. So a lot of wp-admin links are generated. With V2 of SEOChecker those entries should not happen again. And when they do you can add the entries to the config file see below.
In previous version you only had all options if you were an admin. This is changed in V2. You can assign permissions for e specific role now.
Performance is a key feature. Sites using SEOChecker gets bigger and bigger and can cause performance issues sometimes. That's why we dropped our own urlhistory option a few versions ago and with V2 we made two changes in the SEOChecker datatype that checks the page for seo issues during editing:
Starting V2 we are moving some parts to a public GitHub repository. We are starting with translations so you can add your own translations, or fix spelling issues on an existing language file. And we also added the botfilter.config file so you can modify that file as well.
All can be found on GitHub. If you modify a file or add a translation, please do a pull request.
No major versions without breaking changes. Below you find the breaking changes:
If you want to try the beta version of SEOChecker you can download it here. You can use your own license file. If you don't have a license and still want to try you can download trial license (valid until end of may) here.
If you find a bug, please report it to us firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be updating documentation and video's now and hope to release end of next month. We hope you like the new version.
