This plug-in combines several unique SEO tools developed for Search Commander, Inc. and enables their use from inside WordPress. Paste the corresponding short code in place on the page or post where you wish to offer the tool.
Tools included are:
1. URL Checker
Allow your users to instantly run URL reviews for five common search ranking factors. Title Tag, Description Tag, Keyword Tag, H1 Tag and ALT Tag. Show whether they exist or not, and provide your own input and feedback, edited in the WordPress admin.
To use, add the shortcode: [urlchecker]
2. Keyword List Multiplier
Allow your site visitors to easily and instantly create a combination of keyword lists to “cover all their bases” for all the different variations of cities, states, categories etc. when setting up a PPC campaign, including google match types.
There is an additional option (not to be used with Adwords) that will keep any spaces or other characters you may add, such as the pipe | or spaces. When checked, the tool will not add its own spaces. This option makes this tool suitable for nearly any other need, such as insterting options into content spinning software.
To use, add the shortcode: [keyword-marriage]
3. Bulk URL checker
Allow your site visitors to check the server response of just one or a large batch of URL’s to see which ones might be redirected or which ones might come up 404 not found, and then make that list available for download. The longer the list of URL’s, the longer the tool will take to run.
To use, add the shortcode: [bulkurlchecker]
4. Link Variance
Allow your site visitors to put a list of URLs on one side, then a list of varied anchor text on the other side, press a button, and get a complete list of every possible variation of text link and landing page. This list can then be given to bloggers, authors, programmers, etc. to use throughout your content.
To use, add the shortcode: [link-variance]
5. RSS Feed Commander
Allow your site visitors to format any valid RSS feed to display as they wish. They may then use the generated code on any website they like.
To use, add the shortcode: [feedcommander]
6. Structured Data Tool for Local Businesses
Easily generate structured data in a way Google understands, and add it to a website without affecting how it looks. This tool uses the JSON-LD type of structured data, which Google officially endorsed as a markup format in January, of 2015.
To use, add the shortcode: [schematool]
7. File Merger
Time spent copy and pasting can be tedious, and this tool lets your users merge multiple .csv files or .txt files into one downloadable file. They’ll just select multiple files to upload, then choose the output filetype, and press the button.
To use, add the shortcode: [csvmerger]
8. Analytics Spam Filter Tool
This tool lets you apply Google Analytics spambot referral filters directly to any linked Google Analytics account.
To use, add the shortcode: [spamtool]
9. Google Cache Finder
This tool will show you Google’s cache of any URL you paste, opened in a new tab. If you get a 404 page at Google, that means there’s no cache of that URL.
To use, add the shortcode: [googlecachefinder]
The tools in this plug-in are available for your own use, and for the use of your site visitors without alteration of the code. Please note that any editing of the tools or the plug-in may prevent future upgrades from working properly, so do so at your own risk.

What version of WordPress is required?
The minimum requirement is 4.8.1 and use with any prior versions are not supported.
What is this all about, anyway?
Write your own advice and tips in your WordPress admin, then provide your visitors with an instant “on-page” SEO analysis of the top five on page ranking factors. Also included are four other niche tools, explained in detail with videos.
How do I get the SEO tools to display on my site?
Any tool can appear on any page you like. After activation of the plug-in, simply look up the shortcode on the SEO Tools admin screen. Then paste the corresponding shortcode into any page or post, and the tool will display.
File Merger adding extra code to result file.
This is typically caused by incorrect folder permission on uploads/csv-merger. The file merger creates that folder with 755 permissions, but on some servers you may need to manually set that. If the problem persists, you can try setting to 777.
In late 2012, we changed the Bulk URL Checker shortcode to [bulkurlchecker], and the original [urlchecker] now shows the URL Checker. The original shortcode for the URL Checker [seotool] will continue to work, but it’s recommended that you also edit to use [urlchecker] instead.
