The New Project Wizard can be accessed in the Project Files section and will help you to enter all necessary data for your website project.
Enter the URL for this project. Normally, this will be the main site of your website project, that is http://www.mysite.com
Alternatively, click Local File if you want to analyze a HTML document which is saved on your disk.
Afterwards, click Next and ASEOPS will start retrieving the available data from the specified website.
On this form of the wizard, enter some basic descriptions about your website. ASEOPS will fill in most of the information based on the information which was found on the website. If the according information was not found on the website or you would like to change it you can enter text manually. A comment can be added containing some additional information like a delivery date. Furthermore, you can load information from a template on the right side or save it as such. Then, click Next.
Here, you can select the Preferred Search Engine for which you would like to optimize your website from a drop down list which is sorted alphabetically. In addition, please select your Primary Keyword, that is the keyword for which you would like to optimize your site primarily and some additional keywords. ASEOPS will offer you some keywords according to the content which it found on your website. You can either select one of those keywords as primary keywords if you click the arrow button on the right, or choose a different keyword by typing it manually. You can also load that information from a template or save it as such. Load from Collection allows you to use the keywords you created in the Keywords section. Alternatively, you can load keywords from any text file.
Note: You need to select a primary keyword and a preferred search engine to be able to continue.
Afterwards, click Next.
Specify here, where the according html file is stored which you would like to optimize. As Website Location select either your local system or FTP Server. You can test the connection data which you entered by clicking Test Connection.
If you do not have direct access to the according files you can check the option No access to source files. You can then not directly edit the HTML code, of course.
The analysis settings which ASEOPS uses by default can be adapted on this tab. The Scan Depth refers the link checking and determines how deep the program will check. The Max. number of pages determines how many documents will be considered for the technical analysis. At Max. ranking results you can determine how many positions in search engines will be checked, which is the top 10 by default. In addition, you can set some skip options for websites you would like to skip by default.
In the Additional section you can add some further information to your project:
The Submission Data template is only used for the submission to search engines.
The Customer template allows you to save information about the client for which you are doing the project.
The Report template is used to customize reports which you are creating inside of this project.
Click New template if you want to use any of these three templates to create one.
Note: All advanced settings are optional.
After you have filled in all the necessary fields, you can complete the New Project Wizard by clicking Finish.
By default, ASEOPS will now start to analyze your website.
In case you want to create some other projects first, uncheck the according option Start Website Analysis.
