I've rebuilt Scrapers entirely. They are now called Connectors and can return table values and do all sorts of cool things.
Connectors are written using my XML format and makes it super easy to integrate most HTTP APIs with Excel.
The ones that I've written has been open-sourced on GitHub and I really hope some of you will be inspired and help integrate more APIs. I'll follow up with a post on how to write connectors and some documentation.
(All implemented in the new connectors format)
I spend quite a lot of time on SeoTools and to make this a sustainable business I've decided that I need to add more value to the Pro version. Therefore I've decided to make the following changes:
- To use the Google Analytics integration you now need Pro.
- All connectors requires Pro (this includes the previous Onpage, Offpage and Social.
I'm also in a few days going to raise the price from €49 to €69 so make sure you upgrade in time.
- New Razor() function for string templating.
- New MdFive() for Md5 one-way encryption.
- Fixed issues with HtmlTitle().

- Fixed issue with accounts with a lot of items.
