Undoubtedly, 2023 has far exceeded our expectations in terms of product, growth, revenue, and especially development capacity. For this, we can only thank all those who have supported us and commit to continue working to implement not only all the improvements you suggested, but also the ideas from our team to exponentially boost SEOcrawl.
Since its launch almost 4 years ago, SEOcrawl has been fueled by the ideas and requests of our community, which last year motivated us to make public our 2023 product roadmap and to implement the feedback button, which you know well and have used extensively to send us your proposals.
This year we are going one step further: from today, the internal document that we use to capture the next implementations in the tool, as well as its temporal forecast, will be public and you can access it by clicking on the following button.
As you will see, it is a living document, showing all the changes that will take place during the year, which will allow you to get an idea of what our goals are for 2024 and the path we have mapped out to achieve them.
And now, we present you with our roadmap for the year that’s starting. We count on you to create one of the most powerful SEO suites in the market!
Table of Contents
SEOcrawl is designed to be the basic tool in the day-to-day work of all SEO teams, and to achieve this, we have thought that all users in a team should have the same type of subscription. We are already working to let not only the main user enter projects in the tool, but also all the people who make up the team, giving them the same permissions, so that this more “administrative” part can be shared.
We have already made available white-label reports for you to inform your clients, and soon we will take it a step further: with CNAME integration, you will be able to add certain SEOcrawl functions directly to your domain, so that they are within your own brand. Thus, for example, your reports will have a URL like this:
We’ve all experienced it: shortly after investing hours and resources in designing and executing the perfect link-building campaign for your project, the links you had suddenly disappear or become nofollow. With the new link-building monitor (which will be released very, very soon), when this happens, you will receive an immediate alert so that you can act accordingly ASAP.

Tasks: New Design and Calendar View
Our task manager is one of the things that users like most about the tool because it allows managing teams and tasks in a straightforward and very fluid way, but we don’t want to stop there.
Preview of the new task management module.
Soon, we will implement a new, cleaner and clearer design of the tasks chart, which will also include a calendar view that will allow you to see the pending tasks for each day at a glance so that you don’t miss any.

Knowing the time dedicated to each project and each specific task is essential to properly optimize the resources we have. That’s why the task section will soon include a time-tracking function and reporting by teams. Everything under control!
This improvement does not imply any visual change, but we assure you that you will notice it! Soon, we will expand all the crawling limits of the tool, which will directly affect functions such as indexing, the crawler… which will work much more efficiently.
You’ve been long waiting for it, and it will be available very soon: when implemented, this function will check the indexing of all the URLs on your site day by day and will notify you in real-time if there are any changes.
Preview of the new SEO Indexing module that will soon be available.
Later, in a second phase that we are already working on, the tool will be able to automatically and autonomously send the non-indexed pages to Google Search Console so that you don’t have to worry about doing it manually. That’s nuts, right?
We are going to refine our alert system even more, making it notify you in case of abrupt changes in the URLs and keywords of your project, especially regarding very sudden rises or falls in positioning. This will allow you to have even more exhaustive control of your projects.

We are working on a new super-powerful crawling tool with a cool design that we are sure you will love. An advantage over traditional crawlers? It’s in the cloud, with all that entails in terms of resource savings.

Google My Business API
An implementation that greatly simplifies the life of all professionals with local SEO projects: can you imagine being able to control the 10 locations of your restaurant chain or the 50 hotels you manage from a single place? Opening hours updates, photos, reviews, performance of each listing… Coming very soon!
Controlling the performance on mobile and desktop of all your project’s URLs from a single dashboard will be possible very soon, and you will love the visual way we have designed it: a heat map will indicate the score of each of the URLs both on mobile and desktop.

In addition, for each one of them, you will have a daily evolution graph with which you will be able to carry out a much more complete follow-up.
As you know, our priority is to create a tool that works for you while you focus on what really matters: the analysis and execution of your strategy, and this functionality will greatly help you with that: you will be able to set up your own automated reports, and they will be sent automatically every month. This will allow you to save valuable time to dedicate it to other tasks.
As you can see in the roadmap document, we are going to dedicate a whole month to improving the performance of SEOcrawl in terms of data export, to make it much faster and more efficient. During that period, you will not notice changes in the design of the tool, but we will implement improvements in all the internal processes that will directly boost its competitiveness in day-to-day use.
Google ADS API
Yes, you read that right: we are working on integrating all the information provided by Google ADS (search volume, keyword difficulty, etc.) within SEOcrawl so that you can benefit from this data when making decisions without having to leave the tool.
Some changes require removing existing elements to start from scratch, and this is one of them: we have deactivated the Regex system to rebuild it from scratch and make it much more powerful. The new improved version will be available again very soon!
We are sure you will love this new feature! As you know, one of the fundamental tasks in SEO is the documentation of processes, both when creating your own workflows and to train your team, and even to report to your clients. That’s why we are going to implement a documentation system within the tool, where you can register absolutely everything you want within SEOcrawl: protocols, routines, instructions about specific clients or projects…
SEO migrations are probably one of the most complex tasks at the SEO level since they involve many changes, ensuring that nothing crashes duing the process to maintain the same or greater traffic… That’s why we will soon launch 2 related tools.
- The first option consists in bringing two domains together into a single property (example.com and styles.en) to see their joint performance and analyze if the traffic is higher or lower than before migrating.
- And to ensure the technical side, we will create an automatic redirection testing and error reporting tool to make sure that everything runs smoothly.
The most important concept in SEO, the key to any successful strategy: search intent. That’s why we are working on very important improvements in the tool’s analysis capability so that the identification of search intent is increasingly accurate to reality.
Log analysis is a fundamental part of any SEO strategy because it allows you to know important data such as how often search engines crawl your website, which are the most and least visited pages, possible orphan pages, etc. That’s why we are going to incorporate a log analysis tool to allow you to keep your website much more monitored and, consequently, make better decisions.
Google Discover + news + images
Knowing the source of your traffic is essential to be able to trace strategies and make decisions (and, sometimes, it can even bring some surprises). That’s why in 2024 you will be able to know which part of your traffic comes from Google Discover, Google News, or Google Images, and not only that, but SEOcrawl will allow you to cross data, perform analysis, implement optimizations…
You’ve been waiting for it, and it’s now in development: the SEOcrawl plugin for WordPress will be a reality very soon. We won’t reveal more to not spoil the hype, but we can tell you that it’s going to be a very powerful tool to optimize pages built with this CMS.
Is there any suggestion you would like to make? Or would you like to participate in the creation of any product?
We are committed to creating one of the best SEO suites in the world, and our team puts our heart into it every day. Thanks for your trust and support!
