Full write-up as a PAT feature request -- but it applies in Syndwire too, since not all Syndwire customers will have PAT. Need a way to follow the Video SEO cheatsheet recommendation to supply spintax- and token-enabled text for the Description area of the vids that are posted/blasted using Syndwire (especially when using triggers to notice new content in YT channels in order to blast them out).
Here's the full writeup. (Sorry for the length; I added details to properly explain the issue.)
Joe notes in the Video SEO cheatsheet that having 300-600 word descriptions for videos will make them more likely to stand out for Google to notice. It's good advice, but PAT doesn't do that (nor does it do any spinning); it just adds 1-2 lines that you supply (basically enough for company name / URL / phone).
It's understandable why this happens, bcs YT editor isn't designed to handle more than short text and was never expected / intended to be used via an auto-posting tool like PAT...
But this leaves (us) with hundreds / thousands of videos that have no descriptions that look like a human wrote the text. ("Looks like a spam post-bot uploaded this vid... next!) This lowers the chances that Google is going to notice and rank our video(s) in the SERPs. Wasted effort! :(
With Syndwire triggers set up to notice these vids in our PAT / YT channels so and then further blast them across the net to other sites, this compounds the problem. Ie, lots of videos everywhere but they're not picked up, and even if they are they'll be glanced at and then promptly ignored. D'oh! :(
FIX: need a feature extension for PAT to be able to add full spintax-enabled Description text to the videos as they are initially posted by PAT.
Now, there may be no way to do that on the initial PAT creation/post run... so perhaps it's better to create an add-on / extension for PAT to use a list of URLs of existing videos (results from the initial PAT run) as a feed-in to then go back with spintax- / token-enabled text and update the video Descriptions.
So when Syndwire triggers notice the new channel videos, when it blasts them out to more video sites and YT accounts, the correct (full) video description text would/should be carried along with the mass-blast to the new channels and sites.
As it is, there's no way in the world anybody will ever go and manually update hundreds or thousands of videos with useful description text. Updating the video description text fields is a tedious, time-consuming task that you'd never try -- and you wouldn't pay an outsource VA to do it either since it's a mindless time-suck task for humans (wasting their time and your money paying them to do it)...
This is a clear task for automation wins because it needs to be done in order to make Google happy for ranking (and potential clients too for watching/acting on the vids)... but no human will want to do it manually.
The ability for the client to run call reports for ALL companies, as you can do in the Admin access. Boy we've had clients screaming for this one, is such a pain for them to go through the day's calls in a bunch of different screens.
If I could make a suggestion then it would be nice to have the option to place the form code as a widget so people can place it where they want, in the sidebar or footer of their websites and on their own landing page.
I've seen other similar softwares allow this (not PPC ones) but local marketing reports for online directories, citations, etc.
Aside from having more control over the page the testimonials at the bottom of the page aren't all the relevant and the date is wrong (it says 2014 still).
The testimonials discuss the software, not the report which is what is important. People don't care about "cool software". They care about the money they are losing from having a poorly optimized Adwords campaign so that is what the focus needs to be on.
The ability to do a search/filter for a phone number. If I can't remember the date range the ability to do the filter using date range will not help, but if I know the number I could just do a search to find the call(s) from that number. So having a phone number search would be great.
