Raven Tools is a superb tool. Period. However I have a nagging wish list/bug list that gets bigger by the week.
Over the past year I have sent Raven Support countless emails and always had prompt replies from Alison, Scott, Jon and Taylor telling me it’s either WIP, Keep Dreaming Phil or We Never Thought of That bucket.
There are other great tools out there, other than Raven, however this suits the desired requirements of my company and agencies I work with. If Raven can continue to update the software each Friday especially with frequently asked services, then the value continues to increase.
Enough ramble, this is my Raven wishlist. I would be interested in your wishlist.
Reports: Multiple Brand Profile Templates
Currently you can assign a Brand Template to
- Website – www.domain.com
- Profile Template
- Account Template.
What if, however you wish to have a Brand Template shared over 2 or 3 Profiles?
Reports: Non Default Profile exports PDF branded with Raven logo
This is pretty important to change, espically if you wish to export just one SERP report to a client using the Agency/Web Design branding?
Content Manager: SEO Assets
Could videos, images and any other assets be linked to a Cloud account?
Content Manager: Blog Manager
When an article is published on clients blog, could this not be detailed as Linked. The client would also be interested to know where articles have been published, whether that be off or onsite.
I do appreciate this isn’t an easy one, however Raven likes a challenge. If Raven could provide ranking data for Local Search, along with the amount of reviews for each listing.
Ranking: Universal Results
Many of my clients are ranking for videos and images. This isn’t being displayed within the SERPs I send my clients. This would be a massive benefit. IF a screenshot of that SERP could also be generated, that would assist hugely.
GWT Import Data
Importing Google Webmaster Tools data regarding Sitemap errors, crawl errors and the like would be very useful.
Dashboard: Website Settings
After changing the Language to English, Country to United Kingdom and Currency to GBP I would expect the Default Time to change to Europe (GMT +0:00 London) and the SEMRush Default to change to United Kingdom. This is such a tiny change, however it’s the small things that can slow you down.
Having a KPI dashboard would be extremely beneficial. The software presumes rankings are the basis of good results, however many SEO companies work on Sales increase, Traffic Increase and other criteria. Could this be added?
A central dashboard would assist greatly. Viewing 150+ websites all at once showing an increase/decrease of traffic, increase/decrease of sales, increase/decrease of rankings would be superb. Making this a holistic PDF report would help improve communication and continue to increase morale.
I have plenty more ideas, however these are just a tiny handful I have email Raven support about over the past 12 months.
I’d be interested in your suggestions.
