Changelog [text version]
This week we've added the following features: First, is a brand new diagram within the Statitiscs Report that shows how the total number of crawled pages compares to the number of pages in your site map. Pretty useful for making sure you're capturing everything you need.
Next, we've added a customizable column into the Crawled Pages Report. This column header allows you to choose either Markups or Sitemap as the column header and sort as well. Filtering for specific markups has also been added to the new Crawled Pages Report. Finally, you can now define subdomains and subpaths for crawling directly from the Crawl Scope setting without having to alter your allow/disallow rules. Much simpler!
When setting up a new Position Tracking campaign, you've always had the ability to choose a geographic region. Now, if you choose either Canada, Switzerland, Belgium, United Arab Emeriates or Thailand, you will also have the ability to choose a language according to that respective region. We've done this because, in these areas, Google SERPs can vary drastically depending on in which language the query was made.
We've added a feature called Resource Blocking to our Brand Mentions tool this week. This feature allows you to block information captured from a particular domain and tell the tool not to consider it again. You'll notice the addition of the Resources tab as well. If for some reason you make a mistake or want to undo what you've done, you can go to this tab to manage your resources.
