SEO Auto Linker allows you to automagically add links into your content. Great for internal linking!
Due to some changes that make SEO Auto Linker much more usable (an maintainable), keywords from versions before 0.7 must be migrated. There is a second plugin included called SEO Auto Linker Migrator that will do this for you. Just activate it and your done.
Sort of. If you keyword list is
lorem, ipsum, the word
lorem OR the word
ipsum will be linked to the specified URL. If the content contains both
lorem and `ipsum, they will only both be linked if you set the number of links per post to more than one for that keyword list.
If you add hundreds of keywords, the answer is probably yes. However, SEO auto linker makes use of several wp_cache functions which, when combined with a persistent caching plugin, should help speed things up. If you're running a large scale WordPress install, you should probably be using a caching plugin anyway.
In order to keep things simple, SEO Auto Linker searches for some common elements in your HTML (headings, images, inputs, etc) and removes them before adding links, adding them back later. It can't predict every bit of HTML, unfortunately, so sometimes text in attributes or other text gets linked where it shouldn't.
Nope. Because custom fields (aka
wp_postmeta) can be used for so many different things, it doesn't make sense to automatically link that content.
SEO Auto Linker ignores content inside of shortcodes. If you find yourself using shortcodes inside a theme to do things like columns, etc, you may be doing it wrong.
This was a deliberate decision and isn't likely to change.
Yes. Two ways:
<!--nolinks-->somewhere in the content of the post where you don't want links
