We're pleased to announce the release of our new SEO feature in our website feedback tool Notable which allows your team to quickly and easily provide feedback on website SEO data.
Creating an optimized site is a painful process for most web teams. In my previous gigs it went something like this:
- Open up the source code for the page and look through the keywords, title, description, and other meta data of the site.
- After coming up with changes for these elements, construct an email with all the changes and send it to a product manager and founder.
- They would critique and challenge my suggestions. We would iterate a few times over email which took a long time to get consensus from everyone.
- Confusion would happen. Was it a new title or description the person is giving feedback on? What do they want me to do? The endlessly scrollable threads email got very confusing.
I used to dread improving the SEO data for our site. When I started at ZURB a few months back and was introduced to Notable SEO feature (which was still in development) I was instantly pumped to start using it. â€œMan, isn't this an easy way to give feedback on SEO data!â€ I thought. So here we are, finally went public with it.
What is Notable SEO feature?
The Notable SEO tool is a new feature which lets a manager or SEO expert provide feedback on SEO data of a website. For example: I can provide feedback on how to optimize the Notable website to Jeremy (product manager) or Matt (engineer) and they can see exactly which SEO element needs to be changed.
Each piece of feedback is tied to specific piece of data on the Notable SEO report. No emails, no long meetings, no spending tons of time on marking things up in Photoshop, I just capture our site with Notable and show Jeremy and Matt exactly what needs to change in our website data to improve our SEO.
If Jeremy has a clarification on the feedback he received he would point to that specific feedback and add a comment on it. I would get an email notification and would respond to his directed feedback.
How do I use the feature?
After you capture a post you'll click on Add Notes as you usually do. Woila! You'll see the SEO tab right there. Click on SEO. You can annotate this SEO report the same way as you annotate Visual, Code and Copy. Add your annotations to the report. You can then click the new Share button right near the Save button to share your feedback on the SEO. That's all. It's that simple.
What data in the Notable SEO tool can I provide feedback on?
You can annotate all the data in the Notable SEO report. The report captures all the SEO data for the website. Anything from top keywords with the count of appearance to meta data tags for Title, URL, Keywords, Description as well as body content H1, H2, H3, H4 headings and the inbound and outbound links. Take a look here at a sample SEO notable report.
