SEO Ultimate, the free WordPress SEO plugin from SEO Design Solutions, has been upgraded with major new updates to its popular 404 Monitor module.
SEO Ultimate Updates 404 Monitor Module
By default, the 404 Monitor now only logs 404 errors that either have a referring URL or are generated by search engine spiders, since these are the 404s to which you should pay attention.
404s with a referring URL often indicate the presence of a broken link. Investigating these errors gives you the chance to correct the broken link or contact someone who can, thus restoring lost link juice and incoming anchor text.
404s generated by search engine spiders are also important because they indicate that a search engine spider is actively looking for content on your site that may have moved. Investigating this second type of 404 errors gives you the chance to implement any overlooked redirects.
404 Monitor can identify and recognize the 9 most popular search engines worldwide – not just U.S. search engines (like Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc.), but international search engines as well (Baidu, Yandex, Soso, and Sogou).
By limiting logged 404s to these two focus areas (broken links and lost search engines), 404 Monitor presents users with just the 404s that they can often take practical steps to fix (by fixing the broken link or implementing a redirect).
SEO Ultimate 404 Monitor Settings
This new default also cuts down on “junk” 404s such as trackback spam, failed vulnerability exploit URLs, and robot-generated “nonsense URLs.” This new focus also cuts back on database usage. If desired, you can also return 404 Monitor to its previous logging behavior on the module’s “Settings” tab.
In addition, users can now exclude certain URLs (or even wildcard URL patterns) from being logged by 404 Monitor. Users can also limit database usage by specifying a maximum log size on the “Settings” tab (the default is 100 log entries).
In addition to tracking 404 errors, SEO Ultimate can supercharge your site with title tag rewriting, meta tag editing, rich snippet tags, automatic internal linking, robots.txt/htaccess editing, and much, much more.
