Search Engine Optimized (SEO) module integration, the current method of website integration since Spring 2010, refers to a method of integrating the database with your website - the "SEO method of integration" - that increases your search engine results in multiple ways and will continue to offer more features than our legacy method.

Note: If your integration with database was completed prior to Spring 2010 and has not been redone since then, contact customer support to receive instructions on re-integrating your links using this new Search Engine Optimized (SEO) method. GrowthZone can implement this new integration for you or provide your own webmaster with personalized instruction. Going forward, all new integrated website features will require SEO website integration.

Read this online article “Engine Optimized Integration” for more information. If you are deciding whether to upgrade your legacy integration, read this online article “Why SEO? Why Now?” to get more details.


Which version do I have?

There are two versions of our SEO modules plus our original version that is not SEO enhanced – version 1, sometimes referred to as the JSP module version (Java Server Pages).

  • SEO version 2, introduced Spring 2010
  • SEO version 3, introduced Fall 2012

Additional updates to SEO version 3 modules were completed on 1/17/2014. Read more here.

Determine your version by viewing your customized upgrade instructions which displays your current version at the top. Find your instruction on the Dashboard > Message Center tab in the “Customer Service” section of the screen.
