Umbraco and Siteimprove. It’s like having someone join your team who’s extremely perfectionistic and super nerdy. Someone who will spot the errors that you’ve overlooked and point out where things could and should be improved upon. Might sound like a bit of an annoying person, so it’s very lucky that we’re actually talking about a plugin. An intelligent plugin that will help you improve your content, meet accessibility requirements and thus, improve the entire visitor experience. All this, directly in Umbraco.

Put Content Insights and Analytics Data to Use, Directly in Umbraco.

When it comes to content creation, your process may look something like this:

  1. Write and edit content ahead of time.
  2. Upload into Umbraco.
  3. Preview.
  4. Fix a few visible errors.
  5. Hit publish.


Sometimes, you may even tweak a page after dissecting analytics data. But in reality, that all requires tabbing between pages and programs, eating up time better spent elsewhere.


Now while you're uploading and editing content in Umbraco, you can streamline that process immediately with valuable content insights and analytics data from the Siteimprove CMS Plugin.


Siteimprove's automated intelligence platform crawls your website to identify areas of improvement like content errors and digital accessibility issues, plus it dives into a wide variety of analytics data. The plugin then feeds that information to Umbraco for you to use while you work.


How does the Siteimprove CMS Plugin work with Umbraco?

The Siteimprove plugin complements Umbraco's user-friendly interface and appears as a movable widget on any page you're editing. With the plugin, there's no more tabbing between analytics programs or accessibility extensions; the data comes to you, giving you complete visibility into your website and your overall digital presence.


In terms of convenience, Siteimprove has little details that make the experience a lot more pleasant. The overall experience with Siteimprove is higher quality than we’ve seen with other tools.” Thomas Tsai, independent Web Developer.

After crawling any individual web page you're working on, the plugin compiles all the information you need from the Siteimprove Intelligence Platform to optimize content straight away.

The Siteimprove CMS Plugin helps you identify your website's analytics data, quality assurance problems, accessibility issues, and more directly within Umbraco.


Get Content Right the First Time

Along with features like Quality Assurance, Policy, and SEO, Siteimprove scans for Accessibility.  For many public or governmental organizations, having accessible websites is now a legal requirement using internationally recognized Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.


"We can't launch anything online that's less than excellent. We're a small web team, and Siteimprove was like another person on my team who could do the things I couldn't do on my own.” Keisha McKinney, Web Administrator/Digital Media at Fellowship Bible Church NW Arkansas.


Whether your team is working toward an accessible website for legal, financial, or moral reasons, the Siteimprove CMS Plugin can help you work toward that goal—directly from the Umbraco CMS.

Identify accessibility issues with on-page highlighting of issues such as poor color contrast, missing alt text, and more.


Put Analytics to Use Within Umbraco

Your analytics data doesn't have to live in a separate environment anymore, either. Once you log into Umbraco to edit an existing page, traffic, page views, page interactions, and more are right in front of you. Use that information to shape content and page design for a better visitor experience.
