Arkayne was created by developer Paul Kenjora in 2008. It was originally intended to help him link his blog with friends. Kenjora felt that the existing plugins that already existed were insufficient. The original version of Arkayne was developed for Django, an online community where Kenjora was a very active member. From there, Arkayne developed into a stand alone tool that has helped many website owners improve their virtual space and maximize traffic. Arkayne was rebranded to BlogGlue in April 2011.
There are many different website tools that do some of the things Arkayne does. However Arkayne pulls it all together so that website owners get an all in one tool. The site doesn’t just point out keywords, it helps website owner’s social network and find communities of people that might enjoy their content. Arkayne also helps website owners put together a marketing strategy that works for them.
Arkayne has a very professional, yet fun design. From the first visit, a user is greeted with a package strapped to a brightly colored stylized rocket (which is poised to elevate websites, according to the logos pasted all over the package). Arkayne is by far a serious site that offers a very functional tool, but it also manages to incorporate a bit of personality into the experiences which is a big plus. Users can easily navigate to informative information as well as registration and live chat for assistance.
A new user can register for Arkayne by clicking on the green “Sign Up” button in the top left hand corner of the homepage. The user is taken to the registration page, which includes oversized data entry fields which request basic information (including email, a username and password). The large fields and enormous, orange “Create my Account!” button make it very easy to check for accuracy and complete the registration process. The user is directed to their profile dashboard where they can begin checking features and reviewing membership type. A large completion status bar advises the user how far along in the process they are.
Arkayne offers users three different membership types. For about $12 per month, users can purchase a Pro account. This membership allows up to 1,000 pages, dashboard access, and Arkayne community access. For just under $20 per month, users can upgrade to a Pro + SEO membership. This includes up to 2,500 pages plus social media and search engine optimization tools. The most expensive plan is the business membership, which costs just under $50 per month. This membership includes up to 10,000 pages plus all additional features of the first two membership types.
Arkayne is intended to assist website owners with boosting traffic and making the most of their website. Naturally, anyone with a website would get the most benefit. Any kind of website, from a blog to an online retailer, can use Arkayne to find areas that could use improvement and come up with the best approach to making those improvements.
