During the month of October & November, we were migrating Peerlist to a new tech stack. Yogini will write more about it soon and share the insights with you all.
In the meantime, here is what we have brought to you in the November release:
🧑💻 Introducing DEV integration
DEV is a community of software developers getting together to help one another. The software industry relies on collaboration and networked learning. DEV provides a place for that to happen. Many Peerlist members wrote their tech articles on dev.to and requested this integration.
🐤 New and better Social Preview
Peerlist profile is all about YOU!
Our new tech stack has enabled you for a more personalized social preview when you share your profile on any social platform. We are still working on improving it and making it more elegant in our upcoming release. Stay tuned.
⬆️ SEO for your Peerlist profile
Many of you use the Peerlist profile as your primary portfolio or work profile. Therefore it must get discovered organically when someone searches for your name or skills similar to yours.
In this release, we took the first step in that direction by adding a dynamic title, description, and keywords.
- Title - your name
- Description - your brief bio
- Keywords - your profile tags (skills, tools, technologies, etc).
If you want to improve the SEO of your Peerlist profile, make sure you’re adding bio and profile tags.
⚡️ Latest work on your profile. Always!
From now on, your Peerlist profile will always have the latest work from your various integrations. For example, publishing an article on Medium will appear on your Peerlist profile immediately. No need to refresh the section manually. The same goes for your Github, Hashnode, DEV, Dribbble, and all other integrations.
This is an essential improvement to your Peerlist profile and solves the significant problem of keeping your work profile always up-to-date!
