We know that page speed is essential to high engagement. We have always worked hard to make sure that when Slickstream is added to your site, we have the minimum possible impact on page load times and performance.
News and Updates
These are trying times for everyone, and the impacts of Covid-19 are being felt acutely in the publishing industry.
Many publishers are seeing increased traffic, but their ad revenue per pageview has decreased significantly. Since we charge on a pageview basis, we understand that this has made our service less affordable. As such, we've decided to make a temporary adjustment to our pricing:
For the next three months, we will be lowering our prices by 50%.
We've added a cool new feature for Recipe sites: the ability to search for posts based on the ingredients in the recipe.
The Slickstream Engagement Suite just got even better. We've rolled out several upgrades to search, email integration, multi-language support and more. Read on below to see what we changed:
One of Slickstream's key features is site-search. Visitors to your site will stay longer if they can quickly and easily find exactly what they're looking for. So we're always looking for ways to make search faster and better.
In our new release, you will notice a change in the experience. When you type in a search query, you may see category cards showing up above the search results. These category cards replace the filter buttons that used to appear below the search bar.
Some of our publisher's sites have more than one language on the same site. In our latest release, we've added better support for these sites.
How is it February already?
January just flew right on by here at Slickstream, with well over 100 new websites signing up for our Engagement Suite and a whole heap of new records broken. One of those records was for total favorites (over 5,000,000 in a single month!), and to celebrate we decided to take a closer look at the content that visitors loved so much.
We went live today with a big update to the Slickstream Engagement Suite that includes a lot of improvements to our infrastructure, along with a number of features that we hope you and your visitors will enjoy.
What a year.
Slickstream started 2019 as a fledgling startup serving a handful of food blogs, and closed it with our biggest month ever: 100,000,000 pageviews in December alone.
Part of Slickstream's "secret sauce" is our ability to integrate our engagement suite into websites without anything more than an embed code added by the publisher. We handle the work so that our features get added into the site beautifully and seamlessly.
Until now, though, if a publisher wants changes to the configuration of engagement suite widgets on their site, they would need to contact us. For example, if the publisher decided that they wanted to switch to a "grid layout" for their search results, we would need to make that change for them.
