Improve the appearance and ranking of WordPress Posts, Pages, and eCommerce Products in Google Search and Social Website shares
WordPress Social Sharing Optimization (WPSSO) adds HTML meta tags to the head section of WordPress webpages for improved Google Search results / ranking and sharing on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, StumbleUpon, Tumblr and other social websites.
WPSSO adds Facebook / Open Graph, Pinterest Rich Pins, Twitter Cards, and (optionally) Search Engine Optimization meta tags to the head section of webpages. These meta tags are used by Google Search and most Social Websites to describe and display your content correctly (title, description, keyword tags, images, videos, product, author profile / authorship, publisher, etc.). See a few examples from Google Search / Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, StumbleUpon, Tumblr, and others.
WPSSO is fast and tuned for performance, and unlike most plugins, makes full use of all available caching techniques (persistent / non-persistent object and disk caching).
WPSSO only loads the library files and object classes it needs, keeping it small, fast, and yet still able to support a wide range of 3rd party integration features.
Aside from the additional support for Twitter Cards, the main difference between the GPL and Pro versions is the integration of 3rd party plugins and services.
Images and Videos
WPSSO detects and uses all images - associated or included in your Post or Page content - including WordPress Media Library image galleries and embedded videos from Slideshare, Vimeo, Wistia, and Youtube (including their preview images). WordPress Media Library images (and NextGEN Gallery in the Pro version) are resized according to their intended audience (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc).
WPSSO (Pro version) also supports WooCommerce v1 and v2, MarketPress WordPress eCommerce and WP e-Commerce product pages, creating appropriate meta tags for Facebook Products, Twitter Product Cards and Pinterest Rich Pins, including variations and additional / custom images.
Forums and Social
WPSSO (Pro version) supports bbPress and BuddyPress (see the BuddyPress Integration Notes), making sure your meta tags reflect the page content, including appropriate titles, descriptions, images, etc.
WPSSO (Pro version) allows you to customize the field names, label, and show / remove the following Contact Methods from the user profile page:
Try the WPSSO plugin with complete confidence - when uninstalled, WPSSO removes all traces of itself from the database (options, site options, user and post meta, transients, etc.).
WPSSO support and development is on-going. You can review the FAQ and Notes pages for additional setup information. If you have any suggestions or comments, post them to the WordPress support forum or the Pro version support website.
