Create and Edit Content Collections

Content Cube helps you keep an eye on the quality of your web content. But before you can start improvement work, you'll want to group content that Acrolinx has crawled. To do this, you can create a collection for a particular website or set of websites from your content library.

Create a New Collection

Content collections are the building blocks of Content Cube. You'll use them to identify improvement opportunities for a group of content. You can create as many as 50 collections.

Say you want to evaluate your knowledge-base content. The content has done well so far, but you want to make it even easier for users and customers to get answers. That way, your support team has fewer tickets to process and can dedicate more time to bigger issues.  So, you create a collection called "Knowledge Base" and use it to track content in the “Support,” “Help,” “Knowledge Base,” and “FAQ" sections of your website.

To create a new content collection, do the following:

  1. Click the Create Collection button at the top left of the Content Cube homepage to open the Create a New Collection dialog box.
  2. Enter a name for your collection in the Collection name field.
  3. Select the domains and subdomains that you'd like to track. Unless you select specific pages within a domain, Acrolinx will include all child pages for the domains and subdomains that you add to your collection.

    Don't see the domain that you want to track? Ask your administrator to add it to your content library.
  4. Click CREATE COLLECTION. After you create a new collection, you'll also see a card for it on the Content Cube overview page.

Understand Your Collection Cards

The collections you create will appear as collection cards on your Content Cube homepage. Each card shows general data related to that specific collection. Here’s what you'll see:


Collection title

To open a content collection, click the link with the collection title. This will take you to the Discover tab.

Acrolinx Score

The Acrolinx Score for your collection – this is an average of the individual page scores within the collection. The color coding is as simple as a traffic light, so you can quickly see how your collection is doing. The battery icon below the score corresponds with collection fitness: the higher the score, the fuller the charge.

Total pages in collection

A count of all the pages in your collection.

Created by

The name of the user who created the collection.
