Scribe: New Versions & Better Features

image of Scribe logo

There’s a whole bunch that’s new and improved with Scribe – our SEO software that makes higher search rankings simple. Because there’s so much to talk about, I’m going to give you a quick bullet point summary that also serves as hyperlinked navigation for this post. Let’s go:

What’s Scribe?

First, let’s not assume everyone knows what Scribe is or does. Here’s a quick summary.

Scribe is a search engine optimization software service that analyzes the content of web pages, blog posts, online press releases, or any other web content … all at the click of a button.

Next, Scribe reports back and tells you how to tweak your content to get better search engine rankings and more traffic, all while maintaining quality reader-focused copy.

New integrated keyword suggestion tool

The coolest new feature in Scribe is the new alternate keyword suggestion tool. This new tab shows you alternate related keywords relevant to your content, and the search volume for each term.

You’ll now discover other keyword phrases you should be targeting – either for more traffic or less competition – all from inside any version of Scribe. This is just one more way Scribe makes content optimization more efficient and effective.

Scribe 2.0 for WordPress

We’ve released a new version of Scribe for WordPress. Here’s what’s new:

  1. You already know about the new integrated keyword suggestion tool for researching and evaluating keyword options based on search frequency.
  2. You can now restrict or allow Scribe access for different authors/users.
  3. You can manually select the theme or plugin you wish to use with Scribe.
  4. You can now use Scribe for WordPress with WooThemes, the wpSEO plug-in, and the Platinum SEO plug-in.
  5. We’ve corrected a bug that caused some WordPress pages to not analyze properly.
  6. There’s now an enhanced Scribe widget box that shows you the number of evaluations you have left while editing.
  7. Scribe WP is ready for the impending release of WordPress 3.0.

Scribe for Joomla

Scribe now works with the Joomla CMS thanks to the hard work of Joomla guru Barrie North of Joomla Shack and Harry Hopkins from Reliable Studios. Just as with Scribe WordPress, you can now optimize content for Joomla without ever leaving your Joomla control panel.

Watch the demo video for Scribe Joomla.

Scribe for Drupal

Scribe now works with the Drupal CMS thanks to the hard work of Drupal master Tom McCracken of Level Ten Design. Same story here … as with Scribe for WordPress and Joomla, the Scribe technology is fully integrated into the Drupal control panel.

Watch a demo video for Scribe Drupal.

All versions of Scribe included

A lot of you publish on multiple platforms, or have clients who do. So when you subscribe to Scribe, you get Scribe Web and Scribe for WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal, all inclusive. This will likely not always be the case, so yet another reason to get on board with Scribe today.

  1. I consider this a great achievement for Scribe, moving to Joomla and Drupal is going to open a new big market, thanks Brian for the good work!

  2. Hi guys,

    This is awesome – it’s just getting better. If I’m already subscribed at the publisher level, and have 30 evaluations per month, is there any way I can upgrade to the Advanced plan at the same price?

    I don’t really want to cancel and resubscribe…

    Let me know please.


  3. Omg! Nice for Drupal \o/

  4. Sounds good. maybe I should subscribe.

  5. Any chance of an Expression Engine release?

  6. Is that $27 a month for the Advanced? If so, that’s a great deal! I can’t wait to start using Scribe. I just heard about it this morning and have been researching all day. Perfect timing to find this special promotion!

  7. Heather, yep … you get the advanced plan for only $27 instead of $97 a month ($70 a month savings … see I can do math :) ). But that deal ends Friday @ 5 central.

  8. Dries, send me an email (brian at this website domain) and we’ll get you taken care of.

  9. Brian– thanks for the quick reply! Woo hoo – just downloaded the plugin – I’m going to optimize my site right now – You made me so very happy! I appreciate you!

  10. Hi guys,

    That was a great deal on Scribe Brian. Thanks for sharing.

    Kind regards,

  11. I have seen the question asked in a few places… but have yet to see an answer: Is there an ExpressionEngine version in the works? Would love to see that come though! Please let me know!
