Where to find Flint in my Rocketspark dashboard?
There are two ways to access Flint. 1. From Manage Pages in your Rocketspark Dashboard. 2. Switch to the Editor mode to see a lightning bolt on the top right-hand corner of your site. Click the bolt to start using Flint and follow the instructions to get SEO advice for the particular page you are on.
Why is Flint not optimised for my industry?
As a computer brain, Flint is still learning and so hasn't yet perfected text content for your industry. If your business doesn't fall within one of the currently optimised industries, we'd suggest that while Flint is still learning, you use a keyword phrase you are more confident with from doing your own research. Once the keyword phrase is confirmed, you can still use Flint to assist with generating your meta tags and web page content.
What if I think the recommended keyword phrase is inaccurate?
Flint, as a computer is still learning and has only been trained on a limited number of industries so far including bookkeeper, builders, homeware, restaurant, accommodation, schools. If you are not designing a site for one of those industries, it's likely you will get inaccurate recommendations.
Will Flint make suggestions for the whole site or just a particular page?
Flint will suggest different keyword phrases, meta tags and descriptions for the page you are on. When you complete the process for one page, it's recommended to switch to another menu page on your site and start using Flint again by clicking on the lightning bolt or in Manage Pages for page-specific suggestions.
How do I get the generated text paragraphs?
Followed the instructions above, you'll need to complete answering the questions on the pop-ups and complete the first step "Choose main keyword phrase" to be able to activate "Keyword on page 3 times". Click open keyword on page 3 times, you'll see some pencil icons flashing on your page. Click into one of them to see the suggested text which you can use on your page. You can tweak the wording on your page to suit.
Can Flint suggest content for my blog and shop pages?
Unfortunately, Flint doesn't work for blog and shop page SEO optimisation at the moment. If you think it's a critical feature for you, please let our Customer Success team know for our future development.
Once the keyword phrase/title tag/description tag has been done through Flint, do I still need to make changes in the Get Found (SEO) section?
No, there is no need for that.
Does Flint Pick up the content in my Feature Area?
