New validation parameters in the Website Audit module

The first parameter, that we’ve added to the Website audit module –  the rel=canonical tag.

If your website has similar or duplicate content on different pages, the tag rel=canonical will indicate the source page, while the others will be hidden from search engines. This parameter solves the duplicate content issue.

When the Website Audit detects the rel=canonical tag that links to another page of the site, the errors on such pages are not taken into consideration and won’t affect the results of the audits as those will be marked as duplicate pages.

You can also  view the list of all canonical links.

Recently, Google has increased the length of snippets from 160 to 230 characters in the search results. We keep up with the updates – the Website Audit and On-page SEO Audit will notify you if the length of the meta tag does not comply with the latest requirements.

Import links from the Backlinks Explorer tool

Work with backlinks became easier – in two clicks you can transfer all the discovered backlinks from the Backlinks Explorer section directly to the project.

Updates in the Competitor SEO/PPC research tool

We have increased the number of analyzed competitors in the Competitor SEO/PPC researchand now you will get 100 results for each search query. Discover 100 sites that receive organic traffic for keywords similar to yours and 100 sites with similar PPC keywords and audience.

GDPR: The whats and how-tos
Nov 07, 2018 6 min read

In May of 2018, the GDPR, or General Data Protection Regulation was put into action in the European Union. This regulation has tightened Europe's already strict laws about what businesses can and can’t do with people’s data. In return, it gives people more control over how their information is collected and used as companies have to make sure that all of their actions with it are justified.
