    Originally this plugin contained a hidden advertisement for the developer. Now that advertisement is still present but the developer makes it an opt-in choice for the user with a checkbox in the setup panel. That's the right way to do it.

    This is a useful and helpful plugin.

    No, see this section instead:

    339	function seeks(){
    340
    341	        $mdp_info .=    '<span itemprop="seeks" itemscope="http://schema.org/Demand">';
    342
    3<strong>43	        $mdp_info .=            '<a href="http://seo-services.sidcreations.com"><span itemprop="name">SEO Services</span></a>';
    344
    345	        $mdp_info .=            '<meta itemprop="description" content="Sid Creations is an seo company with seo services that gets your website ranked higher, indexed properly and viewed more on all search engines." />';</strong>
    346
    347	        $mdp_info .=    '</span>';
    348
    349	        return $mdp_info;

    Updated the plugin to 0.1.8 and added options to disable the seeks and member part of the plugin, however enabling the added seeks and member can greatly benefit your over ranking. Try it for your self with or without the option and see for yourself.

    More updates will come for the plugin please keep the comments coming.

    My reactions:
    1. I don't know what "seeks" are, but I don't understand how ads for YOUR business will help MY search results rankings.
    2. What else is in the plugin that is a hidden benefit to you and your company?

    My reactions:

    Seeks sets a demand value to your website. This is from the schema.org project which is written in conjunction with googles algorithms.

    It was beneficial microdata but an update was made from your comments within a few hours to give the user an option to turn it on or off. However you continue to question.

    There is no hidden code, the plugin is GNU General Public License, version 2. You have complete access to the source code and the code was approved by WordPress. Look for your self, don't install it, write your own plugin, get left behind, establishing correct microdata is the new Seo and this plug in does it. Just wait until version 2.0 is released.

  6. I'm glad it's disabled by default (if it was not I'm pretty sure it would violate the guidlines here) but why do you need to include this in your "seeks"?

    <a itemprop="url" href="http://sidcreations.com" class="visuallyhidden"><span itemprop="name">Seo</span></a>

    That's the part that I think people would have a problem with. I would if I used your plugin. ;)

    Can you explain that?
