By popular request we decided to bump up two change requests in Prezly’s roadmap.
Press Room Visibility
From now one you can set the Press Room visibility allowing you to set-up a “non-indexable” press room that will not be indexed by search engines such as Bing. And the other ones :p
Visit your press room settings > google analytics and visibility page to update the changes.
Please note that multi-room accounts can individually change this setting on a per-pressroom basis without having impact on your other press rooms.
Whenever we roll-out new Prezly features we always keep Search Engine Friendlyness in account. We do this to make sure that all your press rooms and releases reach maximum visibility making use of industry-standard SEO best-practices and techniques.
As of today we will automatically generate a sitemap.xml in every sitemap to make sure that Google, Bing and others can crawl and index your press release archive.
Today, we release a major update. Using Prezly should be simpler now. More intuitive.
With the team we completely reviewed the press release management system. We went back to the drawing board and tried to make the system more user friendly. Now you can use breadcrumbs, context sensitive menus and a much more consistent interface. The look and feel is also simpler so you can focus on getting things done.
There are some images below of the new layout. Or try it out for yourself by signing up or in.
Big changes are coming up.
The past weeks we have been redesigning the complete backend of Prezly. The main goal was to create a more usable system: the administration pages are much more consistent now and have more navigational aids to help you move around.
We are also optimizing the code to make sure the pages load even faster.
The main structure of the administration pages remains mostly the same. Fear not. You won’t have any trouble using Prezly as you have been. It will be even easier.
Expect the new layout very soon. We are fine-tuning it now and making it more sexy. Below you’ll see some screenshots. Feel free to provide feedback.
Your browser refresh button is going to suffer hard from now on. We just released a mayor update to reporting in Prezly – showing live information about your contacts behaviour. It will be hard to refrain yourself from hitting the refresh button, waiting for new tweets and incoming links to show up.
We decided to invest more in reporting because measuring the impact of your press releases has always been a main goal of Prezly. We want your communication to be effective. So as from today clients with a medium or large account can immediately see on their dashboard what the response is to their press release emails.
The reports section has also had a complete overhaul: clients can see in more detail what the recent activity has been of their contacts. They can see who opened their emails. Who clicked to see the press release and who clicked which link. They can also see who tweeted about their press releases.
It doesnt stop there. More updates to the whole reporting section are in the making. We are working on improved integration of your contacts and of Google Analytics. We decided to already release this version of the reporting as it is a big step step forward for all our clients.
As always – we’re open for feedback on how to further improve. Just drop us a line.
