Thanks for this post because I found an error in CyberSEO Lite and fixed it in version 7.011, so please make sure to update your copy of the plugin, which can always be found here: Login to see this link

The problem that there should be no “%%MAGIC%%” parameter at the end of the URL. It must be an MD5 hash string instead (fixed in the most recent version of the plugin).

When you update the plugin, the cron string will change. However your issue may have a different nature. The cron job below simply pings the given URL once a hour using Login to see this link.

This works on many servers, but it’s not universal, because cURL may not be installed at your particular server. It maybe configured incorrectly or it’s server path maybe different from “/usr/bin/curl“.

Thus you have to contact your server admin or your host provider and ask for the correct path to cURL in your server configuration. After that you may fix the cron job by yourself, or please feel free to post it here and I’ll help you to fix the cron job.

P.S. If you add a cron job via some panel like cPanel, Plesk, ISPmanager etc, you should not use the whole cron job string. You just need to fill out the “command” field which is “/usr/bin/curl –silent ){your site URL}/?pull-feeds={your MD5 magic key}” and set how often you’d like to run it. I’d recommend to do it once a hour. In case if the feed you pull gets updated faster (e.g. a new post is being added every half of a hour or so), you may want to run the cron job more often than just once a hour. Just keep in mind, that the cron job shouldn’t be run too often (say more than once every 10 minutes) because every such operation loads your server.
