Free addon for the Yoast SEO plugin to hide the bloat it adds to the WordPress backend.
Almost anyone who uses the Yoast SEO plugin will agree that it is a good SEO plugin, but the developers are adding more and more unwanted things to the WordPress backend.
The purpose of the SO Hide SEO Bloat plugin, a free addon for the Yoast SEO plugin, is to clean up all those unwanted things.
Since v2.0.0 we have a Settings page! With v2.1.0 we have less options on the Settings page, due to the 3.1 version release of the Yoast SEO plugin. It seems that team Yoast has finally seen the light as they have "temporarily disabled all non-vital notifications". Their changelog says that they are trying to come up with a "more user-friendly way" of dealing with these nags, basically admitting that they have been harassing their user-base. Either way we welcome this development! Who knows? Perhaps in the future this plugin becomes completely redundant? ;)
With the settings page is that you can fine-tune what is hidden or removed to your liking. By default most of the bloat that the Yoast SEO plugin generates is hidden or removed, just like before when there were no settings yet.
It is a good idea to have a look at the Settings page if only to see what you can fine-tune. The link to the page has been added to the Yoast SEO menu and of course there is also a link to it from the Plugins page.
The default settings of the current release are as follows:
