As we improve the features, fix bugs and generally develop inLinks, we’ll record launches here.

Change your Competitor List

When trying to write better content than anyone else, our content optimization tool uses the top search results to build a content brief. At times, though, you know better than the search engines as to what is the BEST content out there, so we have given you the chance to change the competitor cohort list for any given keyphrase: Knowledge Graphs and Training Sets When inLinks creates a content brief for your writers, it first

Change Competitors on Content Analysis Tool

When you create content briefs to write the perfect content for search, inLinks analyses the top 10 URLs that rank for that phrase in your market. Now we have given paid accounts the ability to change URLs in that competitor set. This might be useful if: The competitor page is uncrawlable There is a better competitor that Google has not recognized The key phrase is new and not yet an established search term.

Manually Manage Internal Linking

Managing Internal Links is a real challenge for SEOs and although inLinks has automated much of this process, sometimes you need to be a little more precise and perhaps would like to create your own. The inLinks system now supports the ability to curate and create internal links directly from your inlinks.net dashboard, so now you will never again need to go back to your web team to ask them to add or change links

API Upgrade and More

Today we have upgraded the API for our NLP analysis algorithm so that it works significantly faster and picks up more topics. The API is the part of our system that integrates the web interface with our Knowledge Base. When you update your associations or topics, this creates a ripple in the space-time continuum (OK… not really… but it does change your link graph, which we need to recalculate). The most noticeable effect will be

Addressed a minor .js issue

One of our users noticed that when a page loaded which had our code on, but that page itself was not analyzed against our knowledge graph, the .js file called a non-existant JSON file, which created a 404 error in testing. In truth, the “cost” was small, but we are SEOs and details matter, so we have now fixed this in .htaccess. Javascript response times looking good We appreciate that the load times of javascript

Create Content Briefs without setting a Project/Domain

A couple more launches this week. The main one is that we have set up a special “project” available on everyone’s inlinks Dashboard (requires a login to see that link). The project is specifically for creating content without having a specific URL or website to link it to. You are also able to start your Content optimisation journey from the dashboard by hitting that green “Create Content Brief” button. Content briefs created here will default

Find, Filter and Search Pages

On the project dashboard, there were previously limited options for filtering the pages in your project. More problematic was an inability to display ALL the pages at once. This issue has been resolved by adding a new “search” function, to the right of the “page” column in the main project dashboard. The search looks up partial matches of both the URLs and their Titles. Thus you can use this to quickly find pages that might

Improvements to Upgrading

We now will now account for unused time when you upgrade mid-billing cycle. Previously, if you upgraded mid-cycle, we started a new subscription and then had to retrospectively refund any unused credit. This meant changing your billing date and relying on everyone to play nice. Now the system will keep the regular billing date but will generate an invoice for the extra usage in the current period. This should prove a smoother upgrade process.

Added ability to start new projects from scratch

When clicking on “New project” from the dashboard page, you can now select the “start from scratch” checkbox to start with an empty project. You’ll then be able to add pages manually by copy/paste. Let us know if something isn’t right with this. If you do not select this box, inLinks will pull the 20 most popular URLs that we think are on your site and use these to start building your knowledge graph. If
