Life at Semonto

Semonto's 2023 wrap-up

In the last week of 2023, we love to take a moment to look back at everything that happened this year.

In the last week of 2023, we love to take a moment to look back at everything that happened this year. 2023 was a busy year. We released some awesome features and changes:

In February 2023, we announced our PDF Performance report. It’s our feature where users receive a visually appealing, printable PDF report via email, summarizing uptime, broken links, and mixed content. We also improved our SSL feature. We got requests to add a setting to send a notification when Semonto detects a new TLS/SSL certificate. This feature is disabled by default but available for everyone.

Besides the PDF Performance report, the biggest release is the introduction of server health monitoring. The server health monitoring was released only a few months ago. Where our website monitoring checks your websites from a website visitor's point of view and validates the reachability, if all links and images are working, the SSL certificate is OK and not about to expire, and more, the server health monitoring is taking a different approach. Here, we’ll ask for a health endpoint on your server to get a better insight into the technical health of your server and website. Think about server performance, databases, memory usage and more. More info is on our feature page and blog post. More changes are in the pipeline, so stay tuned.

For a more detailed list of what was released in 2023, it’s best to check our changelog. The list is quite long, from new locations in India, up to an improved keyword and content check, export options and more.

Use cases and Tips & Tricks.

We love to be in touch with people using Semonto on a daily base. In 2023, we interviewed MindMe and Decomundo on how Semonto helps them. We also wrote about the benefits of Semonto for SEO consultants. Check it out here.

Did you know that our current notification system can be used to configure an advanced escalation system? Especially via the “allowed downtime” feature. Be informed via different methods like phone calls, webhooks, and Slack channels, or define who needs to be notified based on how long the incident is happening. More info in this blog.

Google Search Console also lists broken links but from a different angle than Semonto. We wrote a specific blog post to indicate the differences and why you should not only rely on the broken links found by GSC.

One of our developers also made a blog about his 7 tips and tricks to keep websites performant.

About 2024…

We still have a fun roadmap defined. We didn’t manage to finish everything we wanted for this year; quite a lot is still in the pipeline and will be announced in the upcoming months. We cannot share many details yet. We are excited for 2024. Feel free to keep an eye on our blog or subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to know about our next changes.
