Easy Blog Networks System Update #21

Since the last blog post update a few months ago, we did a lot of work on scaling the platform, fixing issues and improving the system.

A few major features added in the last few months:

CSV/ODS export of blog list

You are now able to export a list of all blogs and their basic information to CSV or ODS. You can find it at the bottom of the dashboard.

No more passive indexation check

The migration to fully active indexation check powered by Easy Domain Monitor is now done. All of your blogs are now regularly checked if they are indexed or not. If you find any errors with this check, let support know and we’ll look into it.

We’re analyzing your feedback from the NPS survey and seeing what improvements are on top of your minds. If you have any ideas, please make sure to visit the Feedback page.

Improved blog issue resolution with Report Problem button

We’ve been doing a lot of work in the background to streamline support and help resolve issues as soon as possible. The biggest step was updating the Report Problem button.

A lot of the common errors on the blog are caused by a faulty theme or plugin, and that often happens after WordPress updates. To avoid this, make sure you’re using supported and regularly updated themes. However, if that still happens, you can use the Report Problem button to fix the blog on your own. You will most probably see a blank screen in this case, so all you do is select the first check (blank screen, 500 error) and click Try Automated Fix. The system will reset the theme and, in most cases, your blog will be back online.

Same goes for all other errors – from plugin errors (502 error), .htaccess issues and DNS issues.

We highly recommend you use this button since it can speed up the problem resolution because there is no need for waiting on response from support.

What Easy Domain Monitor integration brings to EBN

With the public beta launch of Easy Domain Monitor, EBN is also benefiting from additional features. While not all domain monitoring features will be available in EBN (EBN is keeping what it has now), there will be benefit to two very important features in EBN: indexation status and deindexation snapshots

Indexation Status

With Easy Domain Monitor’s daily indexation checks, we are discontinuing passive indexation check. You will now get real-time checks of all your blogs and get notified immediately when the blog gets deindexed. This was a very hard feature to develop and we hope you’re as excited as we are!

Deindexation Snapshots

With detailed metrics of all kinds – from social, SEO, blacklists and others, Easy Domain Monitor will now supply an enormous amount of data that will be used to analyze deindexed blogs and help us build a better Blog Health.

These new features will be integrated in the coming weeks. We’ll keep you posted! In the meantime, if you’d like to monitor domains outside your EBN account, check out Easy Domain Monitor.

Easy Blog Networks Update #20

In the last three months we’ve been focusing on scaling the platform to allow for more providers, servers and IPs. We now allow up to 500 unique IPs per user instead of just 50 before September 1st.

We also discontinued our Done-For-You services and Content Module due to missing our quality standard for a few weeks in a row.
