You’ve been voting for a few months now, and 443 votes later – your most wanted are now part of Indexer.
I think what everyone’s been looking forward to the most (even me) is the external url feature. This opens so many future possibilities and it’s a clear time-saver.
Here’s exactly what’s changed:
Feature – Added &wpi_debugdumps url var to show html from last failed requests
Feature – Added /api/cron.php file so we can use actual cronjobs if required
Feature – Added full rotating proxy support
Feature – Check-box options to ignore specific posts types in settings
Feature – “Campaigns” tab added to get any URL lists indexed
Feature – Option to inject a random unindexed-related-post link to each rss feed
Update – Added portal link (to DL the plugin) in support tab
Update – Added totals below each dial on dashboard
Update – Default values now auto applies when installing for 1st time
Update – Huge increase in number of homepage links. Now 3309.
Update – If no database tables found, pretty error and auto fix applied
Update – Added fuller log messages (which also show proxy used, if any)
Update – Added related plugin image
Bug Fix – Protected WP shortcodes from having auth links added to them
Bug Fix – Now we don’t show empty “Releated Resources” section if there are no links
Bug Fix – Hiding some debugging notices from cluttering up the log
Bug Fix – Fixed the ‘no tags assigned to posts’ bug
Index External URL’s
Now this is the big one. You’ll now find a “campaigns” tab where you can enter any urls you want, and Indexer will ping and track them showing you how many are indexed, not indexed or not yet checked. You can add/delete campaigns and track their progress easily (and more importantly, quickly).
You all want to Index and track url’s – and sometimes a lot of them. So grab a list of 5,000 , 10,000 or even 15,000 url’s and paste them in as a campaign. Job done. Have 20, 50 or 100 campaigns that you can easily check the progress of.
Indexer now does the job of monthly paid indexing services, without the limits.
Indexer can manage as many external URL’s as you can throw at it (I’ve tested up to 10,446,483 with no issues).
This is a real timesaver for indexing:
- Non-WP Sites
- Client URL’s
- All your url’s for easy viewing.
What does this all boil down to?
You could pay $327 a month for 10,000 links with Nuclear Link Indexer. $54.50 a month with linklicious. Or you could get WP Indexer for a one off $77 for unlimited url’s a month, where you’re in control.
Set up a campaign in less than a minute.
Simply click the ‘new campaign’ button, give it a name and enter your list. Click ‘save‘ and that’s it – Indexer will help index and track these URL’s until they’re all indexed.
The External URL’s feature could be expanded on even more, and I’d love to hear your ideas on how to improve it (Just add your idea, and if it gets voted for – I’ll try to do it)
Some idea’s that could work for the future are:
- Integrate with WP Linker [Planned]
- monthly (or any time-frame) emails for each campaign (to different email addresses?)
- White-label Reports you’d be able to customize and send to clients
- Individual campaign charts
- Promote External URL’s on the WP blog (RSS feeds, related posts etc)
Those are just the features relating to External URL’s, there’s loads more Indexer features to see here.
Totals for Pings, Links, and Tags.
To improve this feature, there’s now a total number beneath the dials showing daily activity.
A few of you were having problems with your shared IP’s getting limited by Google due to noisy neighbors – this is the fix, also helping with external url’s to prevent the same problem.
Enter your proxies and Indexer will pick a random one for each web request. Just ask your proxy provider for the type (http/sock4/socks5) and enter them into the settings page.
This means you shouldn’t get rate-limited by Google. I recommend using private proxies for this as public ones are slow and most likely already being rate-limited by Google.
Ignore Post Types
You might not want certain types of post touched by Indexer, this is where you can tell it to leave that post-type alone. An example of this when you’re using a testimonial theme or plugin, so it would be pointless to try to index them.
As well as the new features, there’s now a huge amount of homepage links, 3309 to be exact. This will further help by creating more links to you to help indexing by bringing the spiders in from more places (You’ll be able to see this in the log after making a post).
From now, whenever you install Indexer on a new blog, it’ll be configured to the default settings – from there it’s easier to edit for your specific blog.
