These difficult times are a great reminder for us to continue appreciating all the positives, no matter the size.

That's why we've once again gathered a list of 10 little great improvements to ContentKing that we've shipped recently. Let's take a look at them to make sure you haven't missed any of them!

Want to see how many links each page has compared to other pages? Now you can sort and filter on the Relations data in Pages (opens in a new tab) and see how many incoming and outgoing links each page has, all in one screen.

Can't find these columns? Just click Manage columns and select them in the Relations section.

2. URL column always at your disposal

This one was highly requested and we couldn't be prouder – the URL column in tables with pages is finally frozen! No matter how far from the URL column you scroll, now you'll always know exactly which page you're looking at.

3. Open any page directly from Pages

A major productivity booster! In Pages (opens in a new tab), you can now right-click on any row in the table and choose whether you want to:

  • Open a page’s details in a new tab
  • Open a page on the website in a new tab, or
  • Copy the full URL of the page to the clipboard

4. See which XML sitemap a page belongs to

Do you have tons of XML sitemaps and want to quickly check which one a page is included in? Just open the Page detail and check the Indexability section.

5. Filter on alert definitions

Receiving the most relevant alerts is all about having them set up exactly how you need them. We’ve made this even easier – just filter in the Alert definitions (opens in a new tab) screen to see which alerts are already defined, edit them in bulk, or check which ones should be added. Never miss an important change again!

6. More confident alert setup

Now you’ll be able to see exactly what each sensitivity level means when it comes to alert triggering. Head over to the Alert definitions (opens in a new tab) screen, pick any alert definition and adjust the sensitivity to see how many pages will have to be affected for the alert to open.

7. Manage your websites more easily

Are you taking care of lots of websites? In the Websites (opens in a new tab) tab of the Account section, the new List view will give you a much better overview of all of them. Tagteam this with filters to zoom in on any website in a flash.

8. Choose where your websites will be monitored from

You can now choose which part of the world you’d like ContentKing to monitor each of your websites from. This ensures we crawl the version of your website that matters most to you. Check our support article to learn more about this.

9. Set up HTTP headers

Want to identify ContentKing traffic on your website? Or did you notice ContentKing is being blocked by your webserver? From now on you can set up HTTP headers in the Monitoring section of Website Settings (opens in a new tab) for each website. If you want to learn more, just check out our support article.

10. Configure cookies

Just like HTTP headers, you can also set up cookies that ContentKing will send when crawling your website in the Monitoring section of Website Settings (opens in a new tab). If you're curious to find out more, check out our support article.

Alright, we only promised you 10, but since you’ve made it this far, there's one extra thing we couldn't resist telling you about:

Bonus: Two-factor authentication

We're thrilled to see that more and more ContentKing users are going the extra mile to keep their account secure. We are committed to keeping your data as safe as possible and strongly recommend setting up two-factor authentication to make sure your ContentKing account is protected even if someone gains access to your email.

And it takes less than 30 seconds. Just go to Your profile and click on set up 2FA (opens in a new tab).
