Autolinks Manager

Описание

Applying autolinks in your website is a smart strategy to generate more visits on your pages, sell more products, earn money with a referral system or to improve your SEO.

The Autolinks Manager plugin, with its advanced autolinks system and a great number of options, gives you the ability to apply this strategy at its maximum level.

Pro Version

For professional users, we distribute a Pro Version of this plugin.

Technical Details

The total control on the application of the autolinks is what really matters in an autolink plugin.

Unaltered HTML

The autolinks are applied on the fly by PHP when the post are displayed in the front-end and no changes are performed on the actual HTML of the post stored in the database. So you can at anytime add, remove or modify your autolinks without negative implications for your website.

Custom Attributes

The HTML link elements generated with the applications of autolinks can be created with:

  • Custom Title attribute to describe the linked document
  • Custom Target attribute to open the linked document in a new window or tab
    *Custom Nofollow attribute to instruct the search engines that the link should not influence the ranking of the link’s target

Affected Posts

Sometimes specific autolinks should not be applied on the entire website, but only activated with specific topics.

That’s why with this plugin for each autolink you can determine:

  • In which post types the defined keyword should be automatically converted to a link
  • In which categories the defined keyword should be automatically converted to a link
  • In which tags the defined keyword should be automatically converted to a link
  • The term group, which is a list of terms that should be compared with the ones available on the posts where the autolinks are applied

Advanced Match

The search for occurrences of the keyword performed by the algorithm used to apply the autolink can be tuned based on your specific needs with the following options:

  • The Case Sensitive Search option to select if the defined keyword should match or not uppercase and lowercase variations
  • The Left Boundary option to match keywords preceded by a generic boundary or by a specific character
  • The Right Boundary option to match keywords followed by a generic boundary or by a specific character
  • The Keyword Before option to match occurrences preceded by a specific string
  • The Keyword After option to match occurrences followed by a specific string
  • The Limit option to determine the maximum number of matches of the defined keyword automatically converted to a link
  • The Priority option to determine the order used to apply the autolinks on the post

Test Mode

This feature, if enabled through the Test Mode plugin option, allows you to apply the autolinks on the front-end of your website only to the WordPress users that have the capability required to create and edit autolinks. So you can easily test the application of the autolinks in a production environment without actually changing the content of the posts for your visitors and for the search engines.

Random Prioritization

The advanced Random Prioritization option is extremely useful to randomize on a per-post basis the order used to apply the autolinks with the same priority and as a consequence to ensure a better distribution of the autolinks.

General Limit

A limit for the maximum number of autolinks allowed in the same post can be determined with a fixed value assigned to the General Limit (Amount) option or automatically calculated based on the length of the post and the value assigned to the General Limit (Characters per Autolink) option.

The use of the General Limit feature is recommended to limit the application of the autolinks to a reasonable amount.

Same URL Limit

Use this option to limit the number of autolinks with the same URL to a specified value. This option is useful when you have multiple keywords that point to the same resource and you want to limit the number of times that a resource is linked.

Protected Tags

With this option you can instruct the algorithm to not apply the autolinks on specific HTML tags present in your posts.

Let’s say that you don’t want to add autolinks inside the main headings, the tables and the code snippets. Simply add the list “h1, h2, h3, table, code” in the Protected Tags option and you are done.

Categories

The plugin includes the possibility to categorize your autolinks, this is extremely useful when you have a high number of autolinks used for different purposes.

For example you can:

  • Create autolinks to convert keywords that are part of a glossary and include them in the “Wiki” category
  • Create autolinks to convert keywords associated with products sold by an external website and include them in the “Referral” category
  • Create autolinks to convert keywords associated with your best articles and include them in the “Internal Links” category

Meta Box

The Autolinks Manager meta box allows you to disable the application of the autolinks on a per-post basis. Simply visit the post where you don’t want to apply the autolinks and set to “No” the Enable Autolinks select-box available in the meta box.

Extremely Customizable

With the 33 general options you can control various aspects of the plugin. You can for example set the default values for the new autolinks, control how the analysis performed on the posts should be executed, control advanced aspects associated with the application of the autolinks, and more.

Gutenberg Ready

WordPress is changing and the TinyMCE editor will soon be replaced with the new Gutenberg Editor, a page builder that uses blocks to create all types of content.

This plugin allows you to select exactly on which Gutenberg blocks the autolinks should be applied. So you can be very precise in the application of the autolinks and avoid any kind of issue associated with the application of autolinks on Gutenberg blocks.

Multisite Ready

This plugin can be used on a WordPress Network, and supports both a Network Activation (the plugin will be activated on all the sites of your WordPress Network in a single step) and a Single Site Activation (the plugin will be manually activated on single sites of the network)

Multilanguage Ready

Autolinks Manager comes by default in English and Italian, if you want to translate the plugin in another language simply create a translation file or manually translate it with a multilanguage plugin.

Support for this plugin is provided via the support tab above by the plugin developers. If you experience any problems or if you need detailed technical info about specific plugin parts you are in good hands.
