    Face it, nothing been updated nor has the author been seen or heard since 2010.

  2. It's a rip of All in One SEO Pack from years ago. AIOSEOP is still being updated: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/all-in-one-seo-pack

    Michael all in one seo was not yours when it was forked into platinum seo. if you consider forked plugins as rip off your understanding of GPL must be very poor i guess. It definitely works for the latest wordpress versions too and and there wasn't a need for updates until recently. And I didn't had to make releases for your sake. and yes i know how you keep releasing updates without making any changes...lol...

    Platinum seo will soon get some additional free and pro features too. But then stop calling a fork as a rip off as platinum seo has a lot more to offer than all in one seo.

    I am not about forking, I see there is a great lack of responses from the author. If a plugin is free and the author has other pressing matters, the author should state that he will be returning in x months. This helps us to determine if the plugin has been abandoned or not.

    RonDsy, i was responding to michael.

    The plugin continues to work to this date and for the latest wordpress release, though there weren't any updates. There are a few new things in the pipeline though I cannot give a fixed date for them. As for what is currently available, they will work as it is, though I do plan to change the way title rewrites are handled in the plugin currently.

    You don't know what you're talking about. AIOSEOP doesn't have releases with no changes. Platinum doesn't have "a lot more to offer".
    Platinum is a rip off of AIOSEOP from 4 years ago, and had almost no changes. Since then, AIOSEOP has had many security fixes, bug fixes, and new features.

    focus on your all in one seo plugin than making noises like an empty vessel...

    I just want to add my 2¢ to the argument.

    One . . . it seems like desperate tactics for Michael Torbert to come in here and accusing Rajesh of "ripping him off."

    I remember a few years back when I discovered Platinum SEO Pack. Most people were using All in One, Rajesh was honest about using it as a starting point. GPL generally allows that anyway.

    Platinum was a real improvement over AiO, gave more control, more features. And as far as I can see, Platinum never stopped being a great plugin. I've never seen it not work.

    Perhaps over time AiO has added features and functions . . . . GREAT! But rewriting history is a smelly proposition at best. Actively and publicly slinging mud at a competitor always says more to me about the thrower than the target.

    Here's another 2¢. I've tried other SEO plugins and keep coming back to Platinum. It not bloated like so many others and gets me great rankings.

    I am looking forward to title change improvements Rajesh!
