Updating Our /gold/ Page With New Community Highlights

When we first launched SEO Blueprint in the middle of 2019, we thought having comments underneath each video would be enough to satisfy the personal aspect of our offering.

The idea being that we try to teach something to the best of our ability, but if you have any questions, we can help you right where (and when) you have them.

That said, creating a Facebook Group was by far the most requested update from our initial members, and I have to say I'm really glad we ended up launching one a few weeks later.

We'll pass 1,000 discussions in there this year, so we created our /gold/ page as a way to highlight the best of what's being shared.


We never personally committed to being in the group very often - I believe our obligation should be to answer comments inside the training - but it turns out that we've been in there 7 days per week for months (funny how that works).

That means we were able to bookmark a lot of great threads and comments, so have just added a dozen or so more to that page.

If you haven't checked it out yet, you can get it at the direct link, here: https://seoblueprint.com/gold/

And if you haven't yet introduced yourself and what you have going on, please feel free to do so here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/seoblueprint/permalink/419865448701599/

Thanks for being here!

A New Version of Detailed Crawler (+ Blueprint Search Functionality)

I'm excited to announce that we have a new version of Detailed Crawler which no longer requires you to keep downloading and overwriting your previous installation.

Instead, the tool now updates itself in-app, and all you have to do is simply restart it to get the latest features.

This change comes with a number of new filters for finding on-site issues, as we try harder than ever to make this the best free crawler on the market (it might actually be the only one).

If you last downloaded the tool before the 14th of November, you'll need to download it again, here: https://seoblueprint.com/detailed-crawler/

Sorry for the hassle, but this should be the last time you ever have to do so manually.

On top of that, we've added a much requested search function to the dashboard area, which should look like this:

Not only does this allow you to search video titles and page content, but it searches comments as well.

So if you want to find all of your own comments, this is one way to do so.

We also had a request to have a page where all of the latest comments are displayed.

I can certainly make this more useful but we've created a page for those as well, which looks something like this:

If you want to find the page again, just go to the main Dashboard area and look at the latest comments, and click 'View All'.

We also made some other announcements recently we didn't send an email about so you can look out for those, but I hope you enjoy these updates!

P.S. If you're not in our Facebook group yet, do come and join us. I shared a pretty cool new tool there this week: https://www.facebook.com/groups/seoblueprint/

(You're welcome to use a pen name if you're not a fan of Facebook for personal things).

New Worksheet for 'Key Pages Losing Search Traffic' Video

Note: This is a smaller update so we did not send this out as an email to subscribers.

While creating the video on What to Check on Key Pages Which Have Lost Search Traffic, I realised I should probably create a worksheet to go with it.

This was then requested twice in the comments, so we have now put that worksheet live on the site.

You can find it underneath the video, and it looks something like this:

To try to be even more useful, and to hopefully make your life easier, we've also added chapter links to the video, as you can see in the screenshot below:

This means you don't have to watch the whole video again to see what was said about a particular check.

The worksheet also contains a time mention for each specific check as well.

We Are Rolling Out Breadcrumbs to Make Navigation Easier

Note: We did not send an email about this update to changelog subscribers as it's very small.

Thanks to Curtis Storring for the suggestion, you should now start to see breadcrumbs at the top of all relevant video pages.

This not only helps you remember which module you are in, but makes it easier to go back to a specific module overview page if you aren't interested in going directly to the Next or Previous lesson (buttons underneath each video).

We've Updated the Detailed Website Crawler to Version 2.1

If you haven't yet given the Detailed website crawler a spin, now might be the time to do exactly that.


We've just released an update which fixes the tool getting suck on certain URLs, and added an even easier way for you to find pages with trailing slash issues.

This page has all of the details.

Note that on future updates we aim to be able to update the software via the app, which we are now working on.

You Can Now See Your Progress on Individual Blueprint Pages

Two of our members, Paul and Lewis, both asked us for a way to see which lessons they had completed from the individual Blueprint pages, rather than having to click on each individual video.

This has now been added to the Link Building Blueprint, and will be rolling out to all modules over the next 48 hours.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Closed Captioning Rolling Out

A few members of the training let us know that they are hard of hearing, so we've started to roll out close captioning on our videos.

It will take a little time to get all videos transcribed, but we've added Closed Captioning to 10 videos so far.

Microsoft Approve Detailed Crawler

When developer a Windows application, Microsoft require you submit the application in order to get a certification.

This means that you can provide ongoing updates to the software - and that people can install it.

Happily, this has just been approved. We updated the links on /dashboard/ to link directly to the download URL.
