    Today at 7:22AM Pacific Time Attracta hit 2,000,000 websites. In just 6 months we have gone from 1 million to 2 million websites. I predict we will go from 2 million to 3 million in less than 3 months... and hit over 6 million by the end of this year.

    We would like to thank everyone at cPanel and all of our cPanel hosting partners for helping to make Attracta the world's most popular SEO tool.

    Nick,

    Thanks for hearing everybody on this. I was going to add my voice to this thread in protest....

    Now I have to say, this new setup wizard sounds like a GREAT feature. I usually read the change logs...but its still easy to miss important features.

    This is a great learning experience for cPanel, and I'm very glad to see how it worked out!

    Jay

    Why is cPanel using third party tools?

    Why can't cPanel have their own SEO tools instead?
    I mean, cPGS is possible. (Correct me if cPGS is a third-party tool.)

    This really proves how lazy cPanel is.
    cPanel is degrading to Plesk (massively bundled 3rd party tools blah blah, useless tools included)

    Please, third party tools = laziness

    Yours truly,
    GIANT_CRAB

    Well...from my understanding and using cpanel for about 7-8 years,this is the first bundled third party app that came with cpanel.Except the munin and other stuff that you install manually. And I really think that building an SEO platform in house would take years and a lot more people to get it to Attractas level of service.If I and my customers will have a clear choice of On Off switch for this bundle,well,why not take a shot at it?

    Do we have an ETA for this feature ?

    I know that you can already install the plugin but as far as I know only in English. We are looking forward to testing Attracta in other languages to see if it can work for companies who are not based in the USA. :)

    You can see Attracta under the 'Additional Software' section of WHM's left menu. The link is Attracta™ SEO Reseller Tools. You'll need to be running cPanel/WHM 11.32.4.8 or newer (only EDGE right now) to see the link.

    I' running WHM 11.32.4 (build 14) And Attracta is nowhere to be found. I do see Attracta icons in the branding manager, but it does not show up in client cpanel or root whm. What am I missing?

    Currently, you'll have to enable Attracta on the command line with the following command:

    Code:
    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/manage_features enable attracta
    
    As Attracta is a new type of feature, cPanel and Attracta are still working together to ensure that the officially released activation/onboarding process is easy to use, provides good insight into the tools and makes sense for hosts.

    You can sign up to be an Attracta partner and learn more about partnering with Attracta here: https://www.attracta.com/signup/partner/?from=cpanel&level=root

    Thank you! Might as well add that the below command will disable Attracta.
    Code:
    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/manage_features disable attracta

    Is Attracta available for all WHM users now? I cannot see the "additional software" link in the left WHM menu.

    Re: Attracta to become new feature in cPanel & WHM (Q & A)

    Why would you enable this by default?

    This type of **** really pisses me off.

    Seriously, every release I shouldn't be worried about having to uninstall, delete, and clean up after garbage software that I didn't ask for or give permission to have implemented.

    Re: Attracta to become new feature in cPanel & WHM (Q & A)


    Due to the major difference in release cycles between Attracta (~1/mo) and cPanel (~3/yr), and the consideration that cPanel's development efforts are best spent on new features, we're distributing the plugin as a standalone package that can be easily installed from SSH.

    In order to get the latest Attracta, SSH into your server as root and run these commands:

    Code:
    wget -N http://www.attracta.com/static/download/Attracta-SEO-cPanel-Stable.sea
    chmod +x Attracta-SEO-cPanel-Stable.sea
    ./Attracta-SEO-cPanel-Stable.sea
    

    Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

    - - - Updated - - -


    Even with the bundled version, cPanel did not choose to enable Attracta by default. It is not being enabled by default on any cPanel system and if you do nothing, you will not receive Attracta. Sorry that you got a different impression. We by no means want to push the software on anyone who does not want it.

    Guys, we have done several deals with Attracta and our last two Platinum ($2500) deals are falling flat on their face. No support, no follow-up, nothing.. After 45 days on our newest deal with them, we're requesting a refund per their terms for our last Platinum deal and will no longer white-label their services. If you want to alienate a client, Attracta seems to be a good start. We could sell these SEO deals all day but, they seem to have oversold the company, and their ability to deliver based on their contractual terms.

    Eric,
    Sorry for the delay from our side on the deliverables for these packages. I know that the TopListing team has been in touch and we're working to update all deliverables so they meet your needs. Sorry I didn't get a chance to respond on this thread sooner, I unfortunately didn't have my subscription preferences set correctly to see your reply.

    As I recall the proper way to remove it is to use:
    /scripts/removeattracta

    There's multiple threads on this question IIRC. This thread has little relevance any longer and so is now closed.
