We’ve just published Firefox and Chrome extensions that make it easier for you to log into your EBN blogs. All you need to do is connect the extension to your account, and then you can manage your blogs directly from your browser.
Read the help article for instructions on how to install and use the extensions.
The browser extension uses EBN API to show and log into your blogs. Extensions do not have logs, nor save or send blog or login lists. There is no data sent anywhere, it’s just local to your browser.
The next step is managing staff accounts through the extension. You will be able to give access to just specific Blog Networks for each user (API key).
The more history of security and safety EBN has, the more Agency customers are joining our service. That’s why we decided to make it easier to upgrade between larger plans.
In the past, there were big jumps between plans and the higher you moved, the more blogs you needed to add in bulk. The biggest difference was 200 blogs from Enterprise 800 to 1000.
This has now been changed and the difference between all Enterprise plans is just 25 blogs. You can review the new plans on our Enterprise Pricing page.
As always, you can upgrade inside your Account Settings.
In the past, if you wanted to have www in the address of the blog, you needed to go through the WordPress settings dashboard. From today on, you can just add it in the domain field of the Add Blog form (without http://).
This will simplify the process of adding a blog even further, making it a bit less cumbersome to add a blog on www.

It’s been a few months since our last System Update blog post. Users have been regularly notified about the major features but here’s a quick recap of the work since November:
- Completely new Mailbox.
- Added Paddle as the main payment method while keeping Clickbank for existing customers.
- Removed Moz metrics from the Dashboard. Moz DA is not used by many SEOs anymore, and it’s by far the most expensive one to get. We’re keeping Majestic and we’ll be looking if users are interested in Ahrefs.
- Improved security.
We’ve also done a lot of work behind the scenes for decreasing the amount of traffic from crawlers, with a positive impact on security and server speed.
Better email management has been on our todo for a long time. We started with email forwarding but that caused IP blacklisting so we needed to move to Blog Inbox inside WordPress. That was far from optimal – basic features like sorting by date and search were unavailable. The main problem was finding something that would work well but not leave footprints (a lot easier said than done).
Finally, we’re happy to announce that we found a great solution that will work for the long-term. The new Mailbox is a solution for not just receiving but also replying to emails sent to any of your EBN blogs. Emails sent to all of your blogs will now be seen in one Inbox. You can also search for old emails, reply to senders or forward an email to your own address. For detailed instructions on how to use the new Mailbox, please read the Help Article.
You should soon start to see Mailbox icon in the top navigation menu that will guide you through the process of accessing the Mailbox for the first time. Some users’ Mailboxes might still be in the process of being provisioned so you might not be able to access it just yet.
Blog Inbox inside the blog will still be available for at least a few months.
