Where’s Raven? January 2013


Hey, it’s a new year! Are you over your holiday hangover yet?

Here at Raven, we’ve already crossed one 2013 goal off our to-do list when we launched new SEO reports, an upgraded Research Central and revamped social tools Jan. 2.

Here’s what else we’re up to in January, including a Las Vegas trip, new Raven University training classes and a brand-new feature we can’t wait to show you.

New Media Expo Jan. 7-8 in Las Vegas

Ravens will start the new year right by appearing at New Media Expo, the world’s largest conference and trade show for bloggers, podcaster and web TV and video series creators.

With more than 140 sessions presented by more than 175 industry leaders, NMX has plenty to offer – including a presentation by our own Alison Groves.

At 10:15 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 8, Alison will discuss “Link Building: The Best Marketing Strategy You’ve Never Heard Of.” This session will focus on tools and strategies for relationship building and link building to bring your site more traffic and attention.

Meanwhile, we’ll be showing off Raven with demos in the expo hall and giving out some of our always-popular Raven T-shirts.

Raven University

In January we’ll also be opening up registration for Raven University, our new free training that’s open to everyone on your team.

This first-of-its-kind training will help you save time, make money and impress clients using Raven. We’ll offer 30-minute sessions (followed by Q&A) on topics including:

  • SEO Research
  • SEO Management
  • Social Media Management
  • Content
  • Metrics
  • Reporting
  • Admin

All courses will take place online in February 2013, but class registration will open soon. Be the first to know by signing up here.

Website Auditor

And finally, a tool we’ve wanted to add to Raven for quite some time will debut in January: an automated site crawler named Website Auditor.

Website Auditor can automatically crawl any website and report on problems related to visibility, META data, pages, internal and external links, images and semantic data. It will even create a sitemap.xml file for you.

Read more about it here, and stay tuned for a release date soon.
