Overview of your Code Changes page

Updated in the last hour

Optimize your website effortlessly with Seona, offering intuitive code change management, insightful PageSpeed analysis, and sneak peeks into visualized changes, all tailored to your preferences and needs.

Overview

Grouped Code Changes

Seona categorizes code changes by each page of your website, allowing for easy navigation and targeted optimization. Whether you're focusing on a specific page or assessing your entire site, Seona provides clear insights into the recommended changes.

Active and Disabled Changes

Code changes are divided into two categories: active and disabled. When automatic code changes are enabled, all active recommendations are automatically applied to your site.

However, if there are specific changes you prefer not to implement, you can easily disable them. Simply click the "Disable" button at the top right corner of any code change.

Moreover, you have the flexibility to edit any code changes to better suit your preferences. Click the "Edit" button in the top right corner of any code change to customize it. With automatic code changes enabled, any edits or changes made are instantly applied live to your website.

Types of Code Changes

Optimize title

  • Your page’s title is crucial to let Google know what your page is about. It is hidden for page visitors, but is read by Google’s crawling algorithm when it decides how to rank pages.

  • A good page title should be relevant to your page, contain keywords you are trying to rank for, and be roughly 55 - 60 characters.

  • Seona’s algorithm refines your title by scanning your page’s content, ensuring relevancy, optimal length, and keyword presence.

Optimize description

  • Similar to your page title, your page description is also hidden for page visitors but is read by Google’s crawling algorithm to better educate it about your website’s page.

  • A good page title should be relevant to your page, contain keywords you are trying to rank for, and be roughly 55 - 60 characters.

  • Seona’s algorithm refines your description by scanning your page’s content, ensuring relevancy, optimal length, and keyword presence.

Missing H1 tag

  • An H1 tag is your website page’s main header, and it helps educate Google’s crawling algorithm about your page.

  • Best SEO practices dictates exactly one H1 tag per page, so if Seona discovers your page does not have one, it will “promote” another header on your page to an H1 tag.

Note: Seona will make sure there are no visual changes when doing so, as it transfers the styles from the old header tag to the new one.

Multiple H1 tags

  • An H1 tag is your website page’s main header, and it helps educate Google’s crawling algorithm about your page.

  • Best SEO practices dictates exactly one H1 tag per page, so if Seona discovers your page has multiple H1 tags, it will “demote” extra H1 tags to H2 tags.

Note: Seona will make sure there are no visual changes when doing so, as it transfers the styles from the old header tags to the new ones.

Missing social tags

  • Open Graph tags in your websites code dictate how social platforms display your website when your link is shared through them. It’s good SEO practice to include an Open Graph tag for major social platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Reddit, so Seona will supplement your page with any missing Open Graph tags.

Missing alt text

  • The “alt” attribute on image tags is a text description of the image being displayed, and is useful for visitors with slower page loading speeds or visual impairments.

  • Best SEO practice dictates each image contains a descriptive “alt” attribute, so Seona will fill in missing “alt” attributes.

Missing link title

  • The “title” attribute on link tags is a text description of where the link is referencing, and is useful for Google’s crawling algorithm to know what this link is being used for.

  • Best SEO practice dictates each link contains a descriptive “title” attribute, so Seona will fill in missing “title” attributes.

Missing link target

  • When a site visitor clicks on a new link on your website’s page, best SEO practice dictates that new page is opened in a new tab, and not in the same tab you are currently on.

  • Seona will fix this by adding a “target” attribute to your link tag.

Pagespeed Insights


What is it?

PageSpeed Insights provides feedback on the user experience of your website across both mobile and desktop devices. Seona leverages this data to identify areas for improvement and implement optimizations that enhance your site's performance.

Direct Integration with Google

All data presented in the PageSpeed Insights Tab is sourced directly from Google. You can even cross-reference the data provided by Seona with Google's own insights by clicking the "Try PageSpeed Insights Yourself" button, giving you full transparency and control over your website's performance.

Understanding Your Scores

Your PageSpeed Insights score is a metric provided by Google. Seona presents this score in two forms: the grey figure represents your score without Seona's code changes, while the purple figure reflects your score with Seona's optimizations applied.

Detailed Breakdown and Checklist

In addition to overall scores, Seona provides a detailed breakdown of your PageSpeed Insights report. This breakdown categorizes various aspects of your site's performance and highlights areas for improvement.

Accompanying the breakdown is a checklist of optimization factors used by Google to assess your site's performance. Seona not only identifies these factors but also indicates the optimizations it has implemented. A purple sparkle next to a checklist item signifies optimizations performed by Seona, while green checkmarks indicate existing optimizations. However, if a checklist item has a red caution symbol, it means that your site does not meet the criteria, and Seona may not support implementing it.

Preview

Currently, only some users have access to the Preview Page, but rest assured, we are actively working on making it available to all users in the near future.

The Preview Page allows you to visualize where the code changes recommended by Seona are being applied on your site.

Top Toolbar Filtering

Navigate through the Preview Page seamlessly with the top toolbar. Here, you can filter among different types of code changes, toggle between active and disabled changes, and navigate through the pages of your site.

Left Toolbar Overview

The left toolbar on the Preview Page mirrors the code changes listed on the Overview Page. Each code change is represented here, allowing you to review them in detail. If a code change affects anything visually on your site, a small eye icon will appear when you hover over it. Clicking this icon reveals exactly where the change is implemented on your site.

To exit the Preview Page, simply click the "x" in the top right corner!

Settings -> Code Changes

Code Change Preferences

Customize how Seona handles code changes on your site with the Code Change Preferences section:

  • Automatically Applied: Opt for this setting to have all code changes automatically applied to your site in real-time. This seamless integration ensures that your website stays up-to-date with Seona's recommendations without any manual intervention.

  • Not Automatically Applied: Prefer a more hands-on approach? Choose this setting to review and apply code changes manually. With this option, you have full control over which recommendations are implemented on your site, allowing for a more personalized optimization process.

Regenerate Code Changes

Under Settings -> Code Changes, you have the option to regenerate the code changes on your site. However, it's crucial to proceed with extreme caution when using this feature. Regenerating code changes will erase all existing modifications made by Seona. This action should only be taken if you believe there is an error with the current code changes on your site. Exercise careful consideration before regenerating code changes to avoid unintended consequences.

FAQ’s

How many pages of my site does Seona crawl?

Seona crawls 100 pages on the Seona standard plan and up to 250 pages on the Seona Pro plan.

Why do my code change recommendations not change over time?

Seona fully optimizes all the code changes for your site all at once and will only change for two reasons:

  • When content on your site is different from the last time Seona crawled your site.

  • There are large changes to a search algorithm.

How does Seona apply the code changes to my site?

Every time someone visits your site, Seona will intercept your site from your own server, apply its code changes, and then deliver the updated site, all in less than 100 ms! Seona also works in the background, allowing the crucial elements of your site to load before making your code changes.

How do I know if code changes are being applied to my site successfully?

If your Overview tab says “Automatically Applied,” then the code changes are live on your site. Remember, since Seona is applying the code changes server-side, the changes will not appear live in your code editor but instead will appear live on your site.

Some users may also see the Preview page, where you can view code changes live on your site.

To double-check code changes are applied to your live site, follow these steps:

  1. Visit your page through a browser

  2. Right-click a page on your site that Seona has code changes for, and select “Inspect”. From there, you can see the live code of your site.

  3. Search for the applied changes (CMD-F or CTRL-F) from your Seona dashboard, and you should see the recommended code changes live on your site!

If I cancel my Seona subscription, what happens to the code changes?

Unfortunately, if you cancel your Seona subscription, you will lose all the code changes Seona wrote for you. We are not trying to be mean, but since we make the changes on the server-side, there is no way for us to make the code changes if you are not working with us. Sorry about that!
