WordPress SEO ReviewSEO | Monday August 1 2011
I love it when a product or service is so concisely and and accurately explained that you need not look much further than their own marketing to know what to expect. Joost de Valk’s WordPress SEO Plugin is such a product, a plugin for your WordPress blog or site that all but takes care of SEO for you. What’s that explanation to which I refer? From Yoast.com:
“WordPress SEO is the most complete WordPress SEO plugin that exists today for WordPress.org users. It incorporates everything from a snippet preview that helps you optimize your page titles, meta descriptions and keywords to XML sitemaps, and loads of optimization options in between.”
It’s for those reasons and more SEO Translate integrated closely with WordPress SEO to ensure that pages and posts translated as pushed as effectively as possible through the sitemap created by that very plugin.
Developed by 28 year old web developer, SEO, and online marketer, Joost de Valk, WordPress SEO is the leading plugin available for turnkey optimization of your site. Joost has worked in everything from enterprise hosting to online marketing agencies. He founded CSS3.info, the biggest CSS3 resource on the web, built Quix, and runs a weekly podcast with Frederick Townes called the WordPress Podcast. Bottom line, he knows SEO cold, WordPress colder, and how to develop plugins colderer.
About WordPress SEO
Bottom line, WordPress SEO is the fullest featured plugin available; dealing with everything from the obvious meta content and permalinks to robots.txt files and your sitemap. You’ll find a detailed review of each of the plugin features in the plugin’s thorough description:
- Post titles and meta descriptions
- Robots Meta configuration
- Permalink clean up
- XML Sitemaps
- RSS enhancements
- Edit your robots.txt and .htaccess
- Clean up head section
Not enough? Yoast, the brand behind WordPress SEO and which you’ll increasingly recognize as a WordPress user, is working on add-on modules to support news optimization SEO, video SEO and local SEO.
While fully automated search engine optimization remains as out of reach as perfect machine translation, Yoast’s work gets pretty darn close and, with SEO Translate, can help you reach a much larger audience throughout the world.
