Auto SEO Links

Description

No inconvenient and manual link setting on every single page or post anymore. Auto SEO Links automates this process for you. Simply create your keywords in the administration area and determine their behaviour. Everything else will be handled by Auto SEO Links.

Replace your keywords with SEO links automatically

Auto SEO Links uses a filter system which applies itself to every post and page. The content will be checked for every keyword you have created in the administration area. Every match gets replaced with the corresponding SEO link. That way you don’t need to manually set up your links for every single post or page anymore!

Individual configuration

You decide how your SEO links behave. With an easy-to-handle user interface you can immediatetly set up your configuration for every link while creating them:

  • Define whether your SEO link is an internal link (with a target inside your own WordPress website) or an external link.
  • If you choose the internal link target you’ll get a drop-down list with all your published posts and pages. (even from custom post types as long as they’re public).
  • If you choose the external link target you can type any URL into a text-field.

Easily find and edit your SEO link entries, even in huge listings

While actively working on your link-building, your list of keywords and SEO links will grow pretty fast. With creating more and more SEO link entries, it can become difficult to find a specific one inside your list. Our integrated search will be helpful here. Type in your keyword, hit “Search” and you’ll only see the entries that match your search term. If you’re uncertain about the keyword, the integrated auto-complete-function will come in handy. It suggests matching keywords while you type in your search term.

The fruit of your labor at a glance

To provide an overview of how the keyword affects your link-building, we’ve added a column which calculates how often the keyword will be turned into an SEO link on your whole WordPress website. This way you can determine very easily on how many posts and pages your keyword is present.

SEO-friendly behaviour

Auto SEO Links aren’t just a simple filter that crawls through posts and pages and replaces content in a mindless manner. To improve your search-engine ranking, Auto SEO Links follows some simple rules:

  • No multiple replacements: Every keyword will be turned into an SEO link only once per post/page.
  • No links to the current URL: In case an SEO link would lead to the same page you’re currently located at, no link will be generated.

Options individualise the behaviour of your SEO links

Usually one wants to spread the SEO links as spacious as possible on their own website. There are some exceptions where SEO links might not be welcome, though. This could, for example, be the case concerning sub-pages with legal information (imprint, privacy policy etc.).

Taking this circumstance into consideration, we thought about a settings-page where you can set up this option – and some more:

  • Choose from a list of all available posts and pages where Auto SEO Links shouldn’t be applied.
  • Set a limit of how many SEO links should be generated on every post/page.
  • Set a limit of how many SEO links should be generated on every post/page which have the same internal target.
  • We don’t think this is likely to happen, but if you decide to not use Auto SEO Links anymore, you can choose whether you want to delete the corresponding plugin-data in your database as soon as the plugin gets deleted in the administration area (or when it gets deactivated in case it’s a multisite network page).
    • Checkbox to purge SEO link entries with an internal target.
    • Checkbox to purge SEO link entries with an external target.
    • Checkbox to purge plugin settings.

FAQ

Do I have to pay for the plugin?

No, Auto SEO Links is absolutely free.

Does Auto SEO Links change the contents of my posts and pages?

No, Auto SEO Link doesn’t change content inside the database. The content gets filtered before rendering it on the frontend. Keyword matches will be replaced by SEO links and the modified content will be sent to the frontend, but these modifications won’t be saved in the database.

Will there be new features for Auto SEO Links?

Definitely! We have some cool ideas for new features. Further version updates can be expected.

Reviews

Simple And Good

It's a simple plugin which works very easy. I choose a keyword than I can choose a page which I want to link. Simple, fast and effective! What I also like is the Title-Tag. When you add the Title-Tag than a text appears when you put the arrow of the mouse over the text-link. Also you can exclude pages. It will be nice when I can change the text-link color. Thank you much!
