    My website rank dropped dramatically after installing this horrific plugin.
    stay away if you value your website.

    I gave it a second shot and again was disappointed. its a shiny plugin with no technical support, lots of bugs with my theme. may be it will work better for you but I advise all of you to check this plugin BEFORE your site starts gaining traffic.

    Why didn't you try to contact the plugin's author about this by posting a topic in the plugin's dedicated sub-forum? A "review" without even attempting to contact support is pretty pointless.

    Few days after I uninstalled WordPress SEO by Yoast and re-installed SEO Ultimate my website stats went up again. I dont see any point in wasting time on requesting support for a plugin that damages my website.
    I prefer investing the time on repairing my websiete and regaining lost visitors.

    You get one chance to make bad impression. and that goes for all plugins.

    I hope that other readers will be more careful then me and not be impressed only for the high amount of high ranking of this plugin.

    what nonsence, this plugin only helps you with placement of your meta data, you should have looked to external influences. I use Seo by Yeost and I am an SEO professional. Your rankings do not drop becasue you install a plugin, they drop due to external influences or you have changed your content or your keyword structure, that can only be implemented by you.

    Wow, what a sense! With Aioseo my site ranked first page. But I decided to even increase the situation installing Yoast WordPress Seo. After three months my site was out of third page. Of course only by magic and nonsense. I kept the situation for six months, then I uninstalled Yoast masterpiece and return to Aioseo. That was in February, in August the site was back again in Google first page. In the meanwhile, I have changed nothing in the site, no added plugins, no new themes, no CDN, nothing.
