Reviews

Negative SEO: Beware!

If you have already Yoast SEO, then with this tool you’ll have 2 canonical URLs. One is identical to the URL which is set by Yoast. Other one is the custom canonical by this tool.

Now you have 2 canonicals with different URLs – Negative SEO guaranteed!

Google sure doesn’t like 2 different canonicals. You just need one! Whoever did this has no clue about SEO and doesn’t account for Yoast.

So, you want to remove the Yoast Canonical first in order to make this one valuable. It stressed me out because they should’ve thought about this, at least give a warning.
