Auto Clean URL for SEO removes STOP WORDS from the WordPress Slugs (URLs) in ENGLISH, SPANISH, GERMAN and FRENCH.
This plugin removes STOP WORDS from the WordPress Slugs in ENGLISH, SPANISH, GERMAN and FRENCH.
For all languages it removes HTML entities and anything that is not a letter, digit, space or apostrophe.
Please note that the plugin should not be used together with QTRANSLATE, WPML or POLYLANG. In case you have a multi-language blog, this plugin doesn't work correctly.
Yoast WordPress SEO has added a similar functionality to the one of this plugin in version 1.4.16 ("Add option to enable slug stop word cleaning") which is on by default. If you use our plugin together with Yoast WordPress SEO, please turn the WordPress SEO functionality off (find it under SEO -> Permalinks).
Yoast WordPress SEO acts on the WordPress filter "name_save_pre" which means that the Slug is modified when saved as draft the first time or when published (only if it hasn't been saved as draft before). This means that when the slug is first created from the Title of the post the Stop words and HTML entities are not removed at this moment.
Our plugin acts on the WordPress filter "name_save_pre" and on the AJAX action "wp_ajax_sample-permalink" which fires when the Slug is created for the first time. This means that with our plugin the slug is created without stop words in real time. After that you can edit the slug and it will not be modified again by the plugin after it has been edited.
This plugin automatically removes STOP WORDS from the WordPress Slugs in ENGLISH, SPANISH, GERMAN and FRENCH to enforce your SEO efforts.
The stop words were taken from the great resource of Ranks.nl/StopWords.
This first release is avaliable in English and Spanish. In the languages folder we have included the necessarry files to translate this plugin.
