I have just released the latest version of SEO Booster 2. The new version has been prepared and tested for the upcoming WordPress 3.8.

The next major release of WordPress will feature a revamped admin interface and it was necessary to make some changes to match the new look.

As part of the HTML cleanup a lot of other fixes was also made, making the interface and the plugin load quicker in general.

I rewrote part of the backlink verification routines that verifies if and how another web page is linking to yours. Parts of the code was working slowly and is now sped up significantly.

A few improvements was also made to the list of backlinks, listing verified backlinks visually different, and they also appear first in the list.

A web shot is generated for each URL, but they are loaded via lazy loading so it does not slow down loading that page.

If you have visited cleverplugins.com recently you will notice a much simpler and much nicer looking design. I made a thorough cleanup of plugins, code and database.

The database size was reduced with about 80% after removing a lot of leftover data from old themes and plugins. This will keep for a separate blogpost.
