The primary focus of gShift’s December 2016 release is a new Content Optimizer Workflow, which follows on our commitment to enabling users to gain quicker access to actionable SEO data.

This new workflow is designed to work hand-in-hand with gShift Dashboards and specifically content-focused Data Beacons. Users are encouraged to take a top-down approach to identifying which pieces of content they wish to optimize. Once determined, they can drill down into the data details and analyze the piece of content with a specific keyword focus to receive SEO best practice recommendations. These recommendations can, in turn, become part of a checklist of activities to optimize the content and build its authority for greater organic visibility.

Please contact your Client Success Manager or if you would like to walk through the new workflow or find out more about how you can leverage any Dashboards or Data Beacons to gain insights and take action.
