Search engine optimization (SEO) is one of those things that website owners are conscious of when they start a website. But most of them don’t have the time to do it. Or they lack the financial resources to hire a SEO expert.
With cPanel, website owners can use certain add-ons or apps that can help them perform SEO tasks. Foremost of these apps is Attracta.
What is Attracta?
Attracta is a powerful SEO tool integrates seamless with cPanel’s web hosting control panel. Web hosting firms that offer Attracta can help their users in making their websites more SEO-friendly.
Attracta has been used by more than 3 million users worldwide in making their websites rank high in the top search engines like Google. With Attracta, website owners can get listed in the Attracta directory, scan malware and Google blacklisting, and improve their Google search rankings.
The tool offers numerous free SEO tools that website owners can use in driving traffic to their sites. These include XML Sitemap creation and submission and link-building.
It also provides SEO tips such as creating Facebook and Twitter accounts that can boost the rankings of a website, and informative tutorials and videos.
The good news is that this tool is free—meaning that web hosting providers do not have to pay an extra fee to be able to offer Attracta to their clients.
Installing Attracta is very simple and straightforward. It should take a few minutes for website hosting providers to install this tool in their servers. Root access to the server is needed to install Attracta to cPanel servers.

Attracta can have lots of benefits to end users or website owners. It is the largest provider of XML Sitemaps to Google and other search engines. XML sitemaps communicate directly with Google, alerting them to new or modified content. Google, for one, updates more than 45 million blog pages using Attracta’s technology.
