Visual SEO Studio

Published: Thursday, June 23, 2022

This maintenance release mostly fixes several bugs detected in a periodic software quality review.

New Features:

  1. "Page Links" bottom pane: added (initially hidden) "CSS path" column, like in Links Inspector. The piece of information was already there, but users had no way to visualize it from the bottom panel.

Usability / UX:

  1. DOM Viewer: selected node was little readable as it maintained the color scheme with a blue background.


  1. [Win] Minimal .Net Framework requirement changed to 4.6.2 since MS is ending support for 4.6.1 version)
  2. Improved diagnostics in case of crash when accessing a DB project.
  3. Crawling, added support for new Bing Desktop and Mobile user-agents. Legacy bingbot user agent are kept and marked with the "legacy" notation aside their friendly name.
  4. Page search and Snippets: page inner text and custom extraction included in "Inner Text" also the /html/head title. While this is technically correct, it does not meet user expectations. Now the "Inner Text" refers only to content potentially visible, within the /html/body.


  1. [Mac] URL Suggestions: fixed crash that was occurring in most instances when the report was launched with the UI language set to English.
  2. [Win] DOM Viewer, fixed crashing condition when the tool tried to highlight a text longer than 32000 characters. Now in such case the text is truncated and shown ending with " [...] " to fit the maximum size limit.
  3. Fixed crashing condition that might occur when a user closed the help window and the main program window almost at the same time.
  4. Performance suggestions: in some cases a non-blocking script could have been reported as blocking if placed before a HTML comment even if it was placed after the latest non-script tag (and thus it would be non-blocking).
  5. [Win] DOM Viewer: drawing of colored parts (attributes, attribute values, etc.) of element nodes is now more precise and pleasant to look at. They previously were often overlapping.
  6. [Win] DOM Viewer: text nodes and selected nodes representation did strip away characters "&" and ";" in HTML character entities, occasionally underscoring the character following the ampersand.
  7. Links Inspector: column name "CSS path" was not translated to other languages.
  8. Fixed crashing condition occurred in re-generating an histogram after a mouse-up event in a very corner case situation.
  9. Images Inspector and Page Links view: internal redundant white spaces were not stripped out.
  10. Images Inspector and Page Links view: in case of link wrapping an IMG tag, alt attribute was used, but was not stripped of redundant white spaces.
  11. Crawling: links found in the encoded form, like where not correctly recognized and discarded by the spider.
  12. [Win] Copyright notices updated to show year 2022.
  13. Choosing a project name containing the ';' column character caused the program to crash. Now it is treated as an invalid character.
  14. [Mac] Fixed crashing condition occurred when changing UI language in Data Extraction when at least a filter was populated.
