The Free WordPress Website Tune Up and Testing Tool
No, you have just reached the next step. A step I call an "After Publishing Tune Up". If you don't do this your efforts will be somewhat wasted.
That is what my 32V8 Web Tool is specifically designed to do. An "After Publishing Tune Up".
At a Glance - What is the 32V8 Website Tune Up Tool?
The 32V8 Website Tune Up Tool takes you to a range of online testing tools based on a website URL. If you have a WordPress Website with a sitemap, then you can use this.
I use it to see how it looks like on the live site using my web browser. I'd also use it to go directly to the comments section on a page, to check and verify visitor comments and check my responses.
Using this system, I can also quickly check my posts on Google search to see if my SERP stars rating code was doing what it was designed to do by showing the structured data supporting google rich snippets.
I can also check out the websites of my opposition.
How much does the 32V8 Tune Up Tool cost?
This is free. There are no catches, no email sign-ups necessary and no trial periods. Zero. Zilch. Nothing.
Also, there are no affiliate links. Free is pretty cheap, so discounts aren't available to Seniors, Military, or Students.

Please follow the next steps to complete the process.
Go back to the 32V8 tab and Click on the Posts or Pages Button. This will give you a list of posts or pages.
Click on any Post / Page in the list.
A pop-up box will appear with several Action Buttons on it.
A Step by Step Guide on how to use this for Posts & Pages
Once you have your list of either posts or pages, click on the URL in the list that you want to investigate. A pop up box appears with the Action Buttons. (A full explanation of each of these is further below).
Clicking on the first Action Button option that is 01 Site, will take you to a new browser tab with the post selected displayed.
When you go back to the 32V8 tab, the pop up Action Button box will still be showing.
If you click on the Action Button that is marked 03 Google, this takes you to a new Google web page showing your post URL in the Google search box. All the search results will be showing.
If you click on the Action Button that is marked 06 GTMetrix, your selected URL will be loaded and ready for you to hit the Test this Site button to get your GTMetrix results.
A Quick Guide to the Command Buttons

How the Domain Command Function Works
The Domain command doesn't need a post or page as it acts only on your base URL.
There are some very nice online tools around. You will be able to launch straight into these with 32V8, as you don't have to paste or type your URL into them.
You may have noticed that various online tools need your Domain name in different formats, I have catered for this with three versions of your domain, so that every variant is covered.
Full = Full domain name. Example:
Short = Short domain name. Example:
Name = Domain name only. Example:

What Sitemaps will 32V8 work with?
Currently the Sitemaps it will work on are:
Don't worry if you're not sure if you have a sitemap.xml file. WordPress has a default built-in Sitemap. If you have no other installed, this should work straight out of the box.
32V8 has been designed to work with Yoast and All In One SEO Pack as well.
If you want to switch between Yoast and WordPress, you need to switch off XML sitemaps in your Yoast settings and WordPress will automatically kick in. You don't need to re-index your site with Google. In fact don't do this, unless you are making this a permanent change. You can simply switch Yoast Sitemap back on after you have done the testing.
You should be able to do the same thing with Jetpack, or any other Plugins that supports XML Sitemaps.
If you do decide to try switching Sitemap schemes, you may have to clear cache on your caching program(s) such as WP Rocket, or WP Fast Cache, your server, your browser, and any CDN systems you have in place.
* This tool is yet to be tested on other non-WP sites.
Why are alternative sitemaps offered?
Alternatives are offered because many sitemap companies boast that they have better Google searchable Sitemaps than a standard vanilla flavored sitemap.
How have I been doing before now?
I have been developing WordPress web sites for many years. During this time, I have been continually testing posts and pages with various free online tools that are readily available.
When I wanted to test a page's loading speed, I would copy the URL of my post (or page) and run it through GTMetrix, for example.
To make life easier, I built a sub directory system on my PC hard drive, so that I could see and easily select a post. I could then send that post URL to the online tool I wanted to use by clicking on that link on my hard drive.
Something similar can be done with Google Sheets, but I preferred to have it on my PC's hard drive.
By creating this navigation system on my PC, it meant that I could find the URL all of my websites post and page's quickly, and then click through to send it to the online tool I needed.
Why did I develop this Tool?
I found that I was accessing this sub-directory list frequently to monitor and test the same pages and posts against various online tools, or check the same things such as SERP Stars and visitor comments.
As I was doing this, I thought it would be easier if this could be an all-in-one operation, and I also thought it may be something other people could find useful too.

Will 32V8 work on non-WordPress sites?
I have been developing WordPress web sites for so many years that I really have had tunnel vision at this point.
Then the penny dropped - will 32V8 work on any web site that has a sitemap readable by the 32V8 web tune up tool?
The sitemap must have a post and page type of structure in order for 32V8 to work correctly. That is the only requirement. I need some users to give me a little feedback here.
What do these online sites that 32V8 has sent us to, do?
Hopefully most web developers will recognize many of these sites and they will be self explanatory. I am currently working on a new info post to cover these online testing tools in detail.
What about other commands / functions in the future?
This really depends on the acceptance of this Web-Tool.
I need a few users to give me some feedback, so I can judge if I want to throw more $$dollarsbucks at this project.
What is the largest site that this tool can handle?
https://www.starwars.com really tries it out.
This maxes out at 80 different groups of 25 posts per group which is 2000 posts.
And 40 groups of 25 pages, which is 1000 pages.
Other larger WordPress sites of interest are:
Which of course is fairly new.
