SEOptimer’s White Label Report Templates Explained


White Label Report Templates

SEOptimer’s White Label Reports are the perfect solution for digital agencies to provide beautiful, branded and completely customized reports to clients or prospective clients.

 

What is a Report Template?

 

Customization of Audit Reports in SEOptimer is powered by report templates. Rather than having static settings, SEOptimer supports multiple templates so you can set up many different kinds of reports. These different reports might just be look and feel (style) or they might be more structural and include different checks and different levels of information. It’s really up to you as to whether you use 1 template or several.

 

Creating multiple report templates is very useful for a number of reasons. You might want to set up a shorter version of the report with fewer checks as more of an introductory audit. Then you could have a more comprehensive and detailed report template for a new client onboarding session. Some other reasons include:

 

  • different branding for your agency based on who the client is (or if you operate sister agencies or sub-brands)
  • deliver reports in different languages
  • deliver reports in different auditing methodologies (grade scoring vs numeric scoring)
  • regional differences for example Canadian agencies delivering reports in English and French

 

But if you don’t feel like you need multiple report templates, no problem! You can simply use our Default Template and make any changes you need to that single template.

Using your White Label Report Templates

Once you’ve created some new report templates, you can apply them to new reports. Simply navigate to White Label Reports in the menu and click the “Options” button when creating a new report. Then select the template you want to apply in the dropdown menu.

Colors and Fonts

In this section you can customize the look and feel of your reports by specifying colors and fonts. There are 11 popular fonts to choose from and you can seperately specify a header and body font. Colors can be picked using the color picker in each box or you can paste a HEX color code (beginning with ‘#’) to exactly match your branding or style guidelines. There are 5 different color customizations:

 

      1. Background Color: only visible for reports in web/browser view (not PDFs) – usually this should be white (#ffffff)
      2. Highlight Color: this is the score dial color – default is blue with multi-color dials shown on the Summary page based on score (as shown in the example below)
      3. Section Headers Background Color: defult is #ffffff (ie: invisible)
      4. Section Headers Text Color: default is dark grey
      5. Hyperlink Color: color of all clickable text links

 

Report colors

 

The most prominent color setting to align to your branding is the Section Headers background and text color. As you can see in the example below, if you set a color other than white in the Section Headers background color, this will appear as a long rectangular box underneath each section title. When using a darker color like the blue we’ve used, make sure you set your Section Header text color to a lighter color like #ffffff (white).

 

Also, if you’ve defined a Section Header background color, it is customary to use this same color as the Highlight Color for all the score dials. Note that if you define a Highlight Color, this changes the color of all dials and replaces the multi-color score dials on the Summary page. To switch back to the multi-color score dials, simply delete the Highlight Color HEX code.

Technical

In this section you can define a favicon for web reports and also define the <title> and <meta description> tags of the page:

Finally, at the bottom of the page the blue “Preview PDF Report” button enables you to preview your report template before saving it. This is handy for ensuring all your updates show in the report exactly how you anticipate.

 

Below is an example of the web report showing the favicon which appears in the top left of the browser tab next to the <title>. The <meta description> is invisible on the page however it appears in link previews – which are shown if you share the report link on Facebook Messenger, Slack or most other messaging apps.
