Site Manager

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:

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…

Content Curator

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.

Directories in Citation Scanner

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.

Site Explorer

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.

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.

GDPR Options in Site Auditor Pro

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.

Google Sitemap 50,000 Limit Based On Location URLs, Not Alternative URLs



Google Sitemap Submission Date A Day Head

We know that each XML sitemap file can contain a maximum of 50,000 URLs but what is counted as the 50,000 URLs? John Mueller was asked if Google counts both the location URL and the alternative URL in the 50,000 limits. John said on Twitter it is just the location URL.

You can optionally create a sitemap index file (a file that points to a list of sitemaps) and submit that single index file to Google. You can submit multiple sitemaps and/or sitemap index files to Google.”

Here is the question and answer on Twitter:
