Effective Comments Management

No blog is alive without customer feedback. Due to comments you can gather priceless information about your customers and potential clients. The Blog Pro tool enables you to easily edit all comments and reply to customers right from the admin panel. You can also use the ‘auto- approve’ feature to automatically approve all new comments.

Set any blog author as default

This feature is very useful for those who have one major blog writer and doesn’t need to specify a new author for each blog article. Apart from that, you can also enable links to the author’s account pages in such social networks as Google+, Facebook and Twitter.

SEO optimization

A well thought-out content optimization will definitely improve your positions in search results, thus attracting more potential customers. With the advanced blog Magento 1 editor you can specify meta titles, keywords and descriptions for the whole blog, each particular blog post, category or a blog post tag. You can also add blog content (posts, categories, archives, tags) to the sitemap and create special SEO-friendly URLs for each blog post.

Manage search settings

It’s possible to define which type of search should be used in your store's blog according to the general capabilities of your store and server.

Here are the options you can choose from:

    • Built-in search engine is preselected by default. It’s a resourceful but powerful solution; offers synonyms to the customer’s search request;
    • Fulltext Search uses MYSQL algorithms; corrects typos automatically;
    • MySQL LIKE Search is the fastest type of search that works with the exact matches. If visitors are mostly searching your store for particular models, this type of search would be the most suitable.
magento-blog-pro-guest-visitors

Allow guest comments

If you want to motivate blog readers get registered on your website, you can disable guest comments. In this case customers will be asked to log in or create an account.

Schedule blog posts

Easily schedule posts to automatically publish themselves according to your publication plan.

Send email notifications

Keep your blog administrators notified about new comments and added blog posts. This option will help timely moderate all blog comments, filter spam in your blog and keep your blog content under total control. With the extension, you can also send email notifications to customers to inform them about new comments or replies left by other blog readers.
