Features

SEO Ultimate is an all-in-one SEO plugin with these powerful features:

  • Title Tag Rewriter

    • Out-of-the-box functionality puts your post titles at the beginning of the <title> tag for improved keyword SEO.
    • Easily override the entire <title> tag contents for any individual post, page, attachment, category, post tag, or post format archive on your blog. Also supports custom post types and custom taxonomies.
    • Customize your homepage's <title> tag.
    • Format the <title> tags of posts, pages, categories, tags, archives, search results, and more!
    • Choose between two rewrite methods: "output buffering" or "filtering"
  • Meta Description Editor

    • Edit the <meta> description tags for posts, pages, attachments, categories, tags, post format archives, and the homepage.
    • Increase SERP clickthrough rates by influencing search engine result snippets.
    • Mass-editor makes it a cinch to go back and add descriptions to old posts.
    • Use the {excerpt::autogen} variable to auto-generate meta descriptions if desired.
  • Deeplink Juggernaut

    • Use the power of anchor text to boost your internal ranking SEO paradigm.
    • Searches your site's content for anchor texts you specify and automatically links them to a destination of your choosing. Lets you easily build internal links to URLs, posts, pages, attachments, custom post type items, categories, terms, post format archives, and custom taxonomy term archives.
    • Customize footer links for your entire site and/or on a page-by-page basis.
    • Easily select autolink destinations using autocomplete textboxes that scour your site's content and taxonomy terms to find the link destination you're looking for.
    • Autolinks point to the objects themselves, not to their URLs, so if you change the URL of a post or category on your site, the autolinks automatically adjust.
    • Avoid over-optimization penalties by controlling the maximum number of autolinks added to each post/page, the maximum number of times an anchor is linked per post/page, and/or the maximum number of times a post/page can link to the same destination.
    • Reduce autolink frequency by a given percentage (globally or per-link) with the frequency dampener feature. (Useful for large sites.)
    • Choose whether or not posts can link to themselves and/or to the current URL with a few simple checkboxes.
    • Apply the nofollow attribute on a per-link basis. (Perfect for automatic affiliate links.)
    • Exclude specific posts/pages from having links added to them, if desired (e.g. contact pages, the homepage, etc.).
    • Import/export your links as CSV files.
    • Create links pointing to draft posts that will auto-enable when the post is published!
    • Build internal links to your posts from within the WordPress post editor! Use "Instant Post Propulsion" technology to automatically link your old posts to new ones.
    • Lets you enable "Silo Linking" mode so that posts only link to other posts in the same category.
  • Open Graph Integrator

    • Out-of-the-box functionality autogenerates Open Graph data for your homepage, posts, pages, attachments, custom post type objects, and user profile pages.
    • Fine-grained controls allow you to customize the Open Graph title, image, and content type for every single post, page, attachment, and custom post type object on your site.
    • Mass-editors let you specify Open Graph data for multiple posts and pages at a time.
    • Includes support for summary-style and photo-style Twitter Cards.
    • Lets you fix the official Facebook/Twitter HTML so that it validates as XHTML or HTML5.
  • Rich Snippet Creator

    • Easily add rich snippet code for reviews and places.
    • Attract more search traffic with eye-catching supplementary SERP data.
    • Supports the new Schema.org format used by Google, Bing, Yahoo, and Yandex.
  • Author Highlighter

    • Generates code so that when one of your site's posts appears in Google search results, the Google+ profile picture of the post's author will appear alongside it.
    • Includes support for both single-author and multi-author site setups.
    • Supports author highlighting for posts, pages, attachments, custom post types, the homepage, archive pages, and author pages.
    • Inserts a "Google+ Profile URL" field on the WordPress user profile editor, so that users can insert their Google+ URL and enable author highlighting on their posts.
  • Link Mask Generator

    • Generate robots.txt-blocked "link masks" (e.g. http://www.example.com/go/google/) that pass-through to an external URL.
    • Mask links on a per-link, per-post basis so you can exert fine-tuned control over your posts' linkflow.
    • Create global link masks that apply across your entire site.
    • Change /go/ to a directory of your choosing.
    • Link masks provide a modern replacement for the deprecated, nofollow-based "PageRank Sculpting" technique.
    • Perfect for affiliate marketers and SEO-savvy bloggers.
  • Canonicalizer

    • Point search engines to preferred content access points with <link rel="canonical" /> head tags and/or Link: <url>; rel="canonical" HTTP headers.
    • Go beyond WordPress's basic canonical tag functionality with SEO Ultimate's support for category/tag/date/author archives.
    • Redirect requests for non-existent pagination with a simple checkbox.
  • 404 Monitor

    • Improve the visiting experience of users and spiders by keeping tabs on "page not found" errors. (Use a redirection plugin to point dead-end URLs to your content.)
    • Find out what URLs are referring visitors to 404 errors.
    • The default settings hone in on the most important errors by only logging 404s that either have a referring URL or are generated by a search engine spider.
    • If desired, ignore 404s generated from specific URLs or wildcard URL patterns.
  • Permalink Tweaker

    • Lets you remove the permalink base for categories, tags, and/or custom taxonomies.
    • For example, enable category base removal to convert http://example.com/category/example into http://example.com/example, and then pair that with a /%category%/%postname%/ permalink to enable some serious SEO siloing action.
    • The "URL Conflict Resolution" setting lets you arbitrate between pages/terms when taxonomy base removal causes their URLs to conflict
  • Meta Robot Tags Editor

    • Add the <meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow" /> tag to archives, comment feeds, the login page, and more.
    • Set meta robots tags (index/noindex and follow/nofollow) for each individual post, page, category, tag, and post type archive on your blog. Also supports custom post types and custom taxonomies.
    • Avoid duplicate content SEO issues with the recommended noindex settings (see built-in module documentation for details).
    • Give instructions to search engine spiders if desired (noodp, noydir, and noarchive).
  • SEO Ultimate Widgets

    • Lets you output your Deeplink Juggernaut Footer Links in a widget.
    • The Siloed Categories widget makes it drag-and-drop-easy to construct siloed navigation on your site.
  • Plugin Settings Manager (located under Settings > SEO Ultimate)

    • Export your SEO Ultimate settings to a file and re-import later if desired.
    • Use the export/import functionality to move SEO Ultimate settings between WordPress sites.
    • Reset all settings back to "factory defaults" if something goes wrong.
  • And much more...

    • Code Inserter: Easily insert SEO/SEM-enhancing custom HTML into your site's <head> tag, footer, or item content. Code remains even when switching themes.
    • File Editor: Implement advanced SEO strategies with the .htaccess editor, and give instructions to search engines via the robots.txt editor.

    • Meta Keywords Editor: Auto-generate and edit <meta> keywords for posts, pages, categories, tags, terms, and the homepage.
