Another new version of ZEEF has been released today. Some of the highlights include statistics for your page and the ability to add a description to a Link Block.
Always wondered how many people visit your page on ZEEF? Some statistics are now given to experts about their pages. These statistics can be found in the dashboard. The statistics are provided by Google Analytics. Enjoy these insights in your performance, in future releases we will make more statistics available!
Please note: because of some changes we made to our tracking statistics are only available starting today.
A question we received a lot: how can I tell my visitors something about these links? Some experts solved this by adding a Text Block before the Link Block. In this release we made it possible to write a short description for each Link Block. This can be used to display important information about the links in a Link Block, such as how you determined the ranking. You can also add links which point to your sources. Keep it short, but use it to make your page even more useful!
When you edit a page you see a slightly different layout to what your visitors see. We created a preview mode to see the page exactly as a visitor would. This enables you to see how blocks collapse when you add more than 8 links and it also hides the edit features.
Share a link or block
Sometimes you want to share a specific link or block, which could previously be done by using the URL behind the -icon. We made this a lot easier to use: when you click the icon you get a small dialog with a ready-to-copy URL. When you use this URL the page is opened with the specific link or block highlighted.
Depending on the page, it’s possible to use multiple different URLs to reach it. For example, my photography page can be reached at the following URLs:
It’s quite handy to have these URLs, but this also has some negative effects. It causes duplicate content (in the eyes of Google) and it scatters your Facebook likes and other social shares over multiple URLs. That’s why we changed the behaviour. You can still reach the page at each of these URLs, but the visitor will always end up at the same location. The location will use the default alias and includes the expert’s username. This means that in this case the visitor will end up at photography.zeef.com/robin.eggenkamp.
