Time flies when you’re busy, doesn’t it?
Well… It’s already Spring in the Northern Hemisphere and thus time for us to give you a quick recap of all the new features and improvements released over the past few weeks.
New Google Graph
We added a new graph to the Page Stats section in Site Manager.
This graph combines data from Google My Business, Google Search Console and Google Analytics, as you can see below:
First, you will need to connect to these services in Site Manager.
- To connect to Google My Business, open Site Manager and select a site. Then open the “GMB Stats” tab and click on “Connect Now”. Tick “Yes” next to “Is this a physical business registered in Google My Business?” and click on “Connect to Google My Business”.
- To connect to Google Search Console, open Site Manager and select a site. Then open the “GSC Stats” tab and click on “Connect Now”. Finally, click on the blue + button and follow the on-screen instructions.
- To connect to Google Analytics, open Web Analytics and click on the blue + button. Then select a site and tick the “Google Analytics” radio button. Finally, click on “Sign in with Google” and follow the on-screen instructions.
Once connected, you will be able to select the variables you want to see in the graph, as shown in the screenshot above.
Please note that this Google graph can be included in the reports that you generate in Site Reports.
This graph is also available in SERPed Agency, which means that you can add it as a widget, so your clients can see it in their respective client dashboard. Don’t have the Agency add-on yet? Click here to learn more…
New AI Search
We added a new “AI Search” option to Content Curator, meaning that you can now get articles generated with the help of Artificial Intelligence.
This new feature is still in beta, but if you’re looking for content, for your blog networks or even niche sites, we highly recommend that you give it a try.
Citation Scanner & Competitor Citations
New Citation Sources
We added about 20 new citation sources to Citation Scanner and Competitor Citations.
As a reminder, Citation Scanner is a tool that scans directories and similar platforms to find out where any given business is listed, and where it should be but isn’t, while Competitor Citations is a tool that allows you to compare the citations of any local business listed in Google vs. their top competitors.
New Export Options
We added new export options to the View Backlinks section in Site Explorer. You can now export the list of backlinks as a CSV, PDF or XLS file.
Site Auditor Pro
New Unsubscribe Option
We added an unsubscribe option to Site Auditor Pro, as you can see below:
If you tick this box, the following sentence will be added at the bottom of the email your leads will receive:
If you want to unsubscribe and not receive any more emails from us, please email us at (COMPANY_EMAIL)
You can edit this sentence of course.
If someone asks to unsubscribe, make sure you unsubscribe him/her from your future mailings in your autoresponder.
New GDPR Compliance Options
We also added several options to the GDPR Compliance section, to help you with compliance.
These are suggestions that you can add to the Optin Form to take into account GDPR requirements for EU visitors. We do not guarantee that by adding them you will be fully GDPR compliant.
Here is how the form would look like, if the options shown above are ticked:

Daily Search Forum Recap: November 30, 2022
Here is a recap of what happened in the search forums today, through the eyes of the Search Engine Roundtable and other search forums on the web.
Google says again, but more strongly, that links are much less important to the overall Google Search ranking algorithm than it once was. Google said they have algorithms to detect and demote AI-generated plagiarized content. Google does not crawl or index shorter, more niche content faster or better. Google said a page’s content does not need to be indexed for the URL to be in the index. Google said HTTP/3 wouldn’t help you rank better in Google.
