SEO Assistant

Recommended Posts

Ok That link you posted worked when I called it directly in the browser so copied it into my seo_assistant.php and I replaced info:www.txcampingoutfitters.com with $url and it works like a charm now. Thank you so much for you help and great contribution.

Have you looked in the database to see if the table is there or not?

If your tables use a prefix, you will have to change the name of the SEO Assistant tables to match them.

That seems to be a problem with many sites. Something in the code doesn't work with all of them it seems. You can read back through this thread to make sure you have the correct version.

You gotta love contributions where you only add, add, add, and hardly have to modify a couple lines of code on your existing files :D

 

I got this installed and it does seem to be working great, but I only have one small issue already poster above; knowing how my terms come out on google.com is of little use to me, since when I myself browse google.com by hand, my searches will be done on google.es (and the same will happen to 99% of my customers). I do not hope being the first one globally on any terms, but I do want to know how I rank from my customers point of view.

 

I have searched and replaced ALL instances of "google.com" to "google.es" and also all "hl=en" to "hl=en" and it seems to be doing quite better now :D

 

Thanks for this great contrib! :D

This I stumbled upon by accident...

My god am I glad I did. Thanks Jack.

Absolutely priceless. Installed.

Worked first time.

 

Got a small error -

Warning: set_time_limit() has been disabled for security reasons in /home/in/my/path/site/admin/seo_assistant.php on line 18

 

Commented the Time limit out for now...

// set_time_limit(0);

 

My host probably doesnt like this code, any work around if you find time?

That function won't work if the server is in safe-mode. It is only added to try to prevent some timeouts. If you are not having any, then it wouldn't make a difference. If you are, then you will need to limit the number of files to monitor.

Nice, I will be checking it out now. Typo on my previos post, where I said:

 

I have searched and replaced ALL instances of "google.com" to "google.es" and also all "hl=en" to "hl=en"

 

I meant:

 

I have searched and replaced ALL instances of "google.com" to "google.es" and also all "hl=en" to "hl=es"

 

My sugestion; I know it is very easy asking, but even if I may try to change some small things on contributions, there's no way on earth I would be able to this one. It is nice being able to query google at any time for a given word, and have it stored on a DB so you can later compare how you are doing.ç

 

But I think it would be even better if that could be done a little bit more automated. Like, I could configure several/many search terms I want googled and stored on the DB, and all of them could be searched with the press of a button. Maybe it could even be automated via cron, so once a week you can do the query, and on the long term you can see if your search terms are doing better or worse.

 

Anyway, it is a nice tool to have. Just trying to give some ideas on how I think it could be a lot better :D

 

Thanks!

Find this line in the admin/includes/modules/seo_header.php file
$fp = fsockopen("$host", "$port", &$err_num, &$err_msg, 10);

and change it to

$fp = fsockopen("$host", "$port", $err_num, $err_msg, 10);

I haven't tested it but I think it will work.

Thanks you for your helpful information. It's ok with it.. im would like to ask one more question regarding about this Check for SID's. Why does the warning msg show Warning! The Prevent Spiders Sessions setting in your database is set to False. This option should be set to True in almost all cases. It is meant to prevent session ID's from being added to links in the search engine listings.

 

Can you tell wat that and how am im going to slove??

 

thanks you

With that option turned off (unless you have cookies turned on), the search engines will attach session ID's to the links in their listings, which that part of SEO Assistant is checking. By turning the option on (in admin->Sessions), you prevent that from happening.

Hi,

 

I am getting my header status returned with a 500 error. But i have checked my site with some sites that check the header status and they are saying it is ok returning a 200 status.

 

I am running the latest version of the contrib - any suggestions or is it just my host no liking the code?

 

best regards and thankyou for the contrib,

 

anthony

Hi,

 

Just a quick question.

 

When checking my KD - should i have the Include Meta Tags and Use Partial Total boxes checked or unchecked when aiming for the 4-6% as they make a huge difference to my %

 

thanks

There's no chlear answer for that. But if the includsion is making a big difference, then the keywords are probably setup wrong. A lot of people think that because the meta tag will hold dozens of keywords, they should use them. This is untrue and will cause the problem you are describing.

Hi Jack,

 

I have installed this great contribution thank you. I have two questions:

 

1) KD

When I do a check, I get the list including:

- ul

- suckerdiv

- subfolder

- color

- a:hover

etc

 

Surely this is not right, is it?

 

2) PR

When I check my page rank, I get the following message:

 

Failed to read url: www.pebblestar.com

 

It's a new live store so even if my ranking is 0, shouldn't it show 0? I have tried with http: and https: but nothing works.

 

Is there a problem with my url?

 

 

Thank you in advance for your reply.

The first problem is due to the css in your file. You can try moving that to an external file and it might not count it.

 

The other seems to be something on your site that the code can't handle. I am getting an error here too (though different than yours). I would try cleaning up the file first. Javascript and css code should be in external files since that are counted as words by the search engines and that will though your keyword density off.
