Quick actionable data so newsrooms can make better decisions.
The YESEO app was created as Ryan Restivo's RJI Fellowship project. The goal of this app is to help newsrooms with SEO best practices. The idea came from an editor who asked Ryan, "why did our story not rank on the first page of Google?"
Get your story ranked, add YESEO app to your Slack.
Journalists and newsrooms have shown great enthusiasm for our app!
Frequently asked questions
These are some questions we have received from users regarding our app and want to make sure your know the answers to them before downloading. If you have anything else you want to ask, reach out to us.
How much does it cost?
It’s free. We are an educational tool working to help the news industry understand and implement SEO best practices.
I like this bot, do you do custom integrations?
If you want features beyond the current stack, we are working on more and a possible paid tier, contact us at email@example.com to learn more. As part of the RJI Fellowship project, Ryan has already improved other Slack apps he made before, so other custom integrations could be made upon request. Learn more about past projects, here.
Does your app use GPT-3?
Yes! We introduced a feature where GPT-3 attempts to supply text based on the stories users enter to help them create engaging headlines and descriptions. We see these as a useful training resource, knowing that organizations’ style guides may clash with the headline suggestions, a user can take an idea generated by the service and incorporate it into their work.
I input a story to the app that hasn't been published yet, how are you protecting my data?
Any not published story entered into the app is inaccessible to all users other than the user who entered it. The user who entered it may share it to another user, but that will only be able to be done in their workspace. We have worked to protect that any and all data from these stories cannot be touched by any other user in any other workspace. Data that is produced from this command is stored separately.
What sort of information are you collecting on me when I use the app?
We can only collect data that Slack gives us. We are collecting data for analytics purposes on command usage, text entered and button clicks. That data includes usernames, workspace names, channel names. We do not collect any user’s personal information in their profile.
I am having issues. How can I get help?
Reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work with you as soon as possible to make sure your experience is great. Email us here.

YESEO App Premium
The current free tier of products will aim to be supported for every user and every workspace that can be done.
The YESEO app is aiming to be a place where users can easily access information, learn and apply their learnings to create better experiences for their audiences. Ideas for future iterations are already taking hold and future product updates may include new features, but it is possible they will only be available on a premium tier.
This would mean workspaces would pay for a subscription to the YESEO premium app, which would unlock premium features and services. It is also possible that the free version may get a “preview” of these new features from time to time, where usage in the workspace would be capped to let users try out the new functionality.
