Features and Updates

Site Auditor now checks for schema, allows error exclusions

Raven’s recently launched Site Auditor continues to get lots of great feedback while it’s in beta. We’ve even had several customers tell us that Site Auditor alone is worth the price of admission.

Our developers have been busy tweaking and updating Site Auditor based on all of the great suggestions we’re getting. Two new features really stand out: schema.org microdata detection and error exclusion.

Schema microdata detection

Structured data is here to stay and shouldn’t be ignored by SEOs. We also believe that if you’re going to pick a structured data format to use, it should be schema.org’s microdata standard – a standard set by the major search engines.

Site Auditor now checks for schema.org microdata and displays the results in the Semantics tab.

It counts the number of schema.org microdata items found and identifies their type. If you want to see the pages that are missing schema.org microdata, click on the No Schema button.

If you’re unfamiliar with how to create Schema.org microdata, you can use our free Schema Creator tool. Also, if you use WordPress, be sure to check out our free Schema Creator plugin. See our SEO’s guide to schema to get a full primer on schema, what it is and how to implement it.

Error exclusion from reporting

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in life, there’s always an exception to the rule. The same is true when it comes to how people structure and manage their sites.

That’s why we’ve added the ability to exclude issues from being reported as errors. For example, you may have purposely blocked or redirected pages, and you don’t want them reported as problems. Now you won’t have to.

To manage which issues are excluded, click on the Settings (gear) icon.

Choose the issues you want excluded from the drop-down menu and then save. Those issues will no longer appear in your reports as errors.

Coming soon

Site Auditor is still in beta while we work on a few more things we want to get just right, but it won’t be for much longer. Once it’s out of beta, we plan to increase crawl depths – something many of you have asked for.

Meanwhile, let us know how you’re finding Site Auditor in the comments or via email to support@raventools.com.
