Microsoft Clarity integration & new Local Business block for Gutenberg – SEOPress 5.6

SEOPress 5.6 is now available. We encourage you to update your site as soon as possible to take advantage of the latest features and improvements.

🎉 New – Microsoft Clarity integration

Microsoft Clarity is an excellent tool to record user actions on your site, generate heatmaps and get insights about user experience to increase conversions. It’s entirely free and GDPR compatible. We have tested it on seopress.org during several weeks to understand how our users interact with our site, optimize our funnels, and reduce frustration/confusion on certain pages.

Now with SEOPress 5.6, it’s super easy to add Microsoft Clarity to your WordPress site.

🎉 Second block for the block editor (aka Gutenberg): Local Business

Currently you can add your local business informations entered from SEO, PRO, Local Business tab to your WordPress site using the Widgets.

With WordPress 5.9 and the introduction of Full Site Editing (FSE), we have created a new block called “Local Business” to add these info almost everywhere on your site very easily and customizable (a post content, a sidebar, a footer etc.).

All of these informations comes from the Local Business settings page (SEO, PRO, Local Business tab). If you update your business details, it will automatically update all the local business blocks on your site.

🎉 Other news

Many other new features and improvements have been added:

  • we have improved performance for our Google Analytics Stats in Dashboard widget ;
  • the markup for our breadcrumbs has been updated ;
  • accessibility improved for our FAQ block ;
  • several bugs fixed for our export CSV metadata tool
  • a fatal error when sharing singular product with LinkedIn ;
