WebPosition Release v2.0 and Reject Reporting Issues

Written by Kalena Jordan

Continued from page 1
As far as our sales, they remain strong and demand forrepparttar product remains strong. Businesses with an on-line presence have a significant need to track and improve their search rankings. That is not a need that is likely to change anytime soon. Onlyrepparttar 128034 methodology and techniques to improve visibility onrepparttar 128035 engines have changed overrepparttar 128036 years and will continue to change. We'll continue to updaterepparttar 128037 product to accommodate that. Question 6 (WR) - Is there any scope for arrangements with search engines that allow your software limited access to their servers in a restricted reporting capacity, similar to Overture's recent 3rd Party provider agreement with Bid Management Software companies? (BW) We already have formal affiliate agreements with many major engines including Overture, FindWhat, Looksmart, Bay9, Ah-Ha, About.com, and others. It is our goal to work withrepparttar 128038 search engines whenever possible and reach mutually beneficial agreements. We approached Google last year, sending over half a dozen letters and faxes to various VP's in their organization. We offered practical proposals to create a more mutually beneficial relationship. Eventually we gave up onrepparttar 128039 matter when their VP continued to fail to get back with us as promised. It does not appear to be a high priority issue at Google right now from what I can tell. Question 7 (WR) - Do you have any exciting new features you plan to add to future WPG releases? (BW) We always have many features we'd like to add. However, we're focusing our efforts right now on finishingrepparttar 128040 long-anticipated version 2 and making sure allrepparttar 128041 features included in it work really well. We may not bang out a major new upgrade every six months because we focus a great deal of effort to refiningrepparttar 128042 product to work as advertised. Many companies focus on including every bell and whistle underrepparttar 128043 sun, whether it has value or not, and then invest little time to fixing bugs reported by customers. This can be maddening as a consumer and a huge time-waster if you buy a whiz-bang great product and then do nothing but waste time trying to battle crashes, lock ups, etc. In our case, we are so serious about producing a quality product that we offer up to $50 bug bounties to customers for beingrepparttar 128044 first to find and report a problem. (These are credits good forrepparttar 128045 purchase of an upgrade, knowledge base subscription, or other product). It should also be kept in mind that we updaterepparttar 128046 product weekly if not more often so our technology is never standing still between major upgrades. We also prefer to give customers new features and updates for free rather than trying to stick them with a new paid upgrade every six to eight months. With version 2, we'll be continuing our policy of free product support. Much of our competition offers no phone support, or charges $50 or more per call. We're also striving to maintain average e-mail response times at 24 hours or less. This has always been a priority issue for me since I've personally been onrepparttar 128047 receiving end of bad customer support many times. I promised myself to run things differently when I founded this company ten years ago. ------------------------------

Here's a neat new feature: Page Critic will now check your link popularity for whichever engine you're working with. Under Settings, checkrepparttar box that says "Check Link Popularity." You'll then see a section aboverepparttar 128033 General Suggestions that gives your link popularity for your site, and where you can also checkrepparttar 128034 link popularity on competing sites, all from withinrepparttar 128035 program.

Upload Manager

Upload Manager tracks any pages generated by Gold and uploads them, or other pages that may have changed since your last upload. Upload Manager will uploadrepparttar 128036 pages for you, or you can use your own FTP program.


To me, Submitter is a great program to use forrepparttar 128037 international engines or lesser important engines that don't have pay inclusion programs. You can pick and choose which engines to submit to, and if you try to submit too many pages on any one day,repparttar 128038 program will quickly remind you to keep you out of trouble.

A neat new feature of this program is its built-in spider for quickly gathering URLs. The new Import option will spider a Web site and create a list of allrepparttar 128039 URLs, even ifrepparttar 128040 files do not exist on your hard drive. This feature certainly makes submitting an entire Web site quite easy.

Submitter also allows you to add custom engines that aren't included in Gold 2, so you can keep track of your submissions all in one location.

Traffic Analyzer

HitsLink powers Gold 2's Traffic Analyzer, and it will track statistics such as visitors, search engines, andrepparttar 128041 keywords being used to find your site. The feature is easy to use - you simply register, and HitsLink generatesrepparttar 128042 code for you to put on any page that you want to track. Stats are provided instantly and in real time.


Program Scheduler to run your reports or submit pages at a time that's convenient for you, like at night during non-working hours.
