Category Archives: RankWyz Updates
Yesterday we had a small celebration at RankWyz for the event we didn’t even dreamed about, when we launched the service beginning of the summer of last year.
I remember how exciting it was when we finally released service to the public offering 100 and 200 blogs packages with 250 posts / day limit. In just two months we had over 11,000 blogs in the system and let me tell you – it felt incredible. Below our stats we shared with our users at the beginning of the August.
Little we knew what would it take to scale it up to the level where we are now, but persistence pays – from the system that required users to upload own scraped content and make posts to 12 web2 sites (most by email) we went all the way to what RankWyz is now – auto syndication, full text rss, translation, multiple 3rd party services, multi-tier linking, advanced scheduling and drip feeding, unlimited blogs, account store and many more other features allowing our users experience new level of outsourcing without compromising own seo strategy.
And this is where RankWyz now – over 300,000 blogs and over 10 million successful posts.
Something to be really proud of and a great moment to express how grateful we are to our users. Many of you stayed with us through hard times and waited for us to deal with growth problems, spent your own time sending us feedback and suggestions for improvements. We definitely would not be where we are now without our users.
Thank you all and let me assure you, that we are not planning to stop improvements and innovations any time soon. We are completely dedicated to what we do and absolutely committed to continue increasing value of services we provide for our members.
While is so tempting to simply scrape and use images, we have always advising our users, especially for the Tier 1 blogs, go extra step – download images, resize them and upload on personal image hosting account and avoid leaving a footprint by using “hotlinked” images. Google indexes images as well as a content and once bot arrives at your page it knows if it seen images already before. We all know that, but let’s face it – we don’t have that time and often compromise…
Today we have rolled out new feature, that would allow our users upload images on image hosting site automatically with absolutely no extra effort, not only you will avoid using hotlinked images, but also rankwyz will reupload image not once, but every time you create a post.
So if you have just one single image and are making post to hundred blogs – you will not have all 100 post reusing same image and potentially leave a footprint, but every post will have own, not used by anyone else image.
Today we uploaded a new update, that will greatly enhance content option available to our users.
Now in addition with retrieving content directly from RSS feed we added option to pull full article content from the page referenced in RSS feed. This can be used in mimicking massive content syndication from your site with proper attribution link pointing back to your site or to retrieve relevant content from popular sites.
Today we rolled out changes that will help our users to improve link profile by adding secondary keywords, generic keywords, naked links in addition to primary keywords. We added integration with Semrush and now our users can load dozens relative keywords with the single click of the button and also added option to specify follow/nofollow distribution.
Cutting-edge automated blogging software RankWyz.com continues to add features to an already revolutionary application. In the continual quest to provide a simplified, yet full-featured, blog management system, RankWyz has incorporated the ability to use RSS feeds to publish content to your blog network.
RSS feeds are a staple of the Web 2.0 revolution, making it easier for users to follow their favorite sites through the use of a syndicated feed. RankWyz now allows webmasters to use data from syndicated feeds in their blogs, with or without site attribution. Users can subscribe to niche- relevant feeds and use the content to create authoritative and informative posts to their own blog network. For internet marketers, there is an added benefit of this new feature: you can now build hundreds of back links to your primary site by using RankWyz to subscribe to your own money site’s RSS feed.
RankWyz.com provides users with the ability to manage hundreds of blogs from a single interface. Through RankWyz, users have total control of all the of blogs in a network, making it easy to add content, build back links, manage and implement keywords, and create contextual links from tier one properties. The new RSS subscription feature expands the robust feature set of RankWyz, making it a fantastic option for users of all experience level.
RankWyz.com is the brainchild of founder Pavel Kovalev, who created the service as a way of building and managing massive blog networks from a single interface. As the optimum way to grab attention and advertise services, blogging is a proven marketing method that businesses simply must use if they wish to make their goods and services stand out from the crowd. A large amount of high-quality and informative blogs is key to reaching millions of potential customers around the globe. However, building and maintaining these blogs can be extremely time-consuming. This is where RankWyz comes in.
“We are constantly upgrading and improving our features. Our goal is to build an immensely popular internet brand by providing excellent customer service. Our ultimate goal is 100% customer satisfaction and retention. We at RankWyz feel that we satisfy all of these goals, and are constantly setting new ones that benefit our customers”, says the company’s founder.
From the very beginning of our service one of the main concept was that we generated actual article right at the moment when it was about to be posted. This approach gives benefit of changing content pretty much on the fly – change configuration, images, links, etc and very next post will reflect changes.
Overtime tough our logic for article generation is getting more complex (site map extraction, RSS parsing, translation and more) and thus more time and resource consuming. Add to that our growing posting volume (over 4k/hour at the peak) and you see the problem.
Over the last week we made changes in the system that added extra step in our posting process
- Create Scheduled Posts
- Create Article to be Posted and Assign to each post <== New Step
- Make a Post
Now you will be able to see what exactly is going to be posted before hands, but as a drawback any changes in submission (configuration, links, images, etc) will not have effect to already scheduled posts.
!!! If you have submission posting and made some changes in configuration, now you need to stop submission first (that will delete all scheduled posts) and start it again.
Step 1 – Submission Started, Scheduled Posts Created
Step 2 – after a short period, articles generated and attached to each post
Step 3. You can preview what exactly will be posted
XML-RPC is, by default, enabled in WordPress, but you will need to enable it whenever you login to rankwyz.com. To do this, login with your provided details. On the left hand side of the page, you will see ‘Settings.’ Click on it and then select ‘Writings’ from the drop down menu. After the new page has pulled up, you will be given the option to enable XML-RPC. All you need to do is to save and then you are ready to go.
There are many benefits of posting links to the blog only after initial period – blog will have much greater chance of surviving and link has higher authority when posted to already indexed blog.
We always recommended this approach ours users, but up until now it required an several steps to set up delayed link posting.
Today we added new option that allows to delay link posting until blog reached specified number of posts.
To setup link posting delay, edit submission, go to “links” tab and update “Add Links After X initial posts” option. For example if you set it to 10, system will not include links for the first 10 posts for each blog and only after wills start adding links.
Now you can add include adds into all or some your posts and in addition to SEO benefits you can also post different offers and drive traffic to your blogs.
When you edit your submission, on the “Options” tab you will find new option for “Ad Block” and once enabled you will find a placeholder for your ad (banner, etc), can select placement – top, bottom or random and specify how often you want ad block to be included.
Now Save Submission and Click Preview
Start posting and see your ads posted on hundreds blogs
And here is quick video demonstrating new feature
A Perfect Tool for Posting on the Go
Any email can be turned into a blog-posting application. To get to your blog settings, click the drop down arrow and scroll down to settings.
Then, go to the left hand side of the screen and under Settings, you will find ‘Mobile and email.’ Click on it.
From there, you will need to set your Secret Word, which functions as your password. Make sure to choose a secure one. You can either publish immediately or save as a draft post.
When you send an email, the post will be updated to your blog. The body will be the post, the subject line will be the title and any attached image will be inserted into the post.
