SEO just became easier!
We’ve just rolled out AIOSEO 4.1.7, and it comes with some new features you’ve been asking for. One such feature is IndexNow, a sure game changer for those using Bing and Yandex. The other is our page builder integrations.
Let’s dive right in and see just how these new features can help make SEO easier for you.
Speed up Your SEO Results with the IndexNow Addon
We’re genuinely excited about the IndexNow addon as the IndexNow protocol is set to revolutionize how search engines crawl and index content. We’ve been working together with Microsoft on this for some time, and we’re happy we can now share this amazing tool with you.
What Does the IndexNow Addon Do?
After search engines crawl (discover) a page, they try to best understand what your page is about. They analyze the content, media, tags, categories, and everything you’ve put on the page. The search engine then stores this data. This is called indexing.
The time it takes for search engines to crawl and index your page can take anything from a couple of days to months. Unfortunately, this means your SEO efforts for that page will only start kicking in after search engines index your page.
That’s where AIOSEO’s IndexNow feature comes into play.
It alerts Bing and Yandex of any changes you make in your content. This will lead to your new or updated content being crawled and indexed faster. This results in your SEO efforts bearing fruit much faster.
Accessing the IndexNow Feature
You can access the IndexNow feature by going to your AIOSEO dashboard and clicking on “Feature Manager:”
Turn the “Deactivated” toggle to “Activated” to turn on the feature. Then, click on the “Manage” link to continue with the setup. Doing so will take you to the Webmaster Tools section of the AIOSEO plugin:
The green tick on the top right-hand corner of the IndexNow icon shows that you’re connected and ready to go.
Once activated, the IndexNow addon pings search engines every time you:
- Publish new content
- Update old content
- Delete posts/pages
This results in new content, edits, or changes being indexed immediately. Prioritizing these recent changes goes a long way in helping you rank faster.
Page Builder Integrations
Another major update you’ll find in AIOSEO 4.1.7 is the page builder integrations. The plugin now integrates with three major page builders: SeedProd, Elementor, and Divi. This means you can use AIOSEO right from your favorite page builder’s dashboard. As a result, optimizing your content has just become more manageable. It also helps you create an optimized site structure, giving you a solid foundation for your SEO campaigns, all from within your favorite page builder.
Let’s quickly see how these page builder integrations work:
AIOSEO + SeedProd
SeedProd is fast becoming one of the most powerful page builders for WordPress. If you’re a SeedProd user, you’ll find AIOSEO nestled under the “Page Settings” tab in the SEO section.
Clicking on the SEO section will open up AIOSEO and enable you to optimize your pages and posts right from within SeedProd.
This gives you greater flexibility and reduces the time needed to optimize your website.
Despite being nestled in SeedProd’s menu, you still get the full power of AIOSEO.
Ranking your pages has become easier as you can implement SEO best practices right from within SeedProd.
AIOSEO + Elementor
You’ll find AIOSEO under the Elementor settings menu:
Clicking on AIOSEO will open up the AIOSEO functions you’re used to:
This enables you to easily optimize your page on-the-fly with AIOSEO’s suggestions.
You can also optimize other aspects of your pages and posts right from within the page builder. These include schema, social meta, and more.
If you love Elementor, then you’ll love it more when you experience the powerful combination of your favorite page builder and the world’s best SEO plugin.
AIOSEO + Divi
AIOSEO also integrates very well with Divi. You can easily access AIOSEO next to your Divi settings icon.
Clicking on AIOSEO opens up the SEO settings you can apply to your page or post using AIOSEO. As with SeedProd and Elementor, you still get all functionality, even though you’re working from within Divi.
Having AIOSEO working in your page builder gives you more control and flexibility on how you optimize your website. This definitely is a game changer for those who use these supported page builders.
