Now a Paid for Plugin
You can see at every plugin on the wordpress directory the License mentioned at the “Other Notes” section. That’s where WordPress automatically publishes that data, if the plugin has a license.
If you go ahead and take a look, you will see that our License states: $19,99 / month.
Therefore, your review here is only hurtful and does not provide value to anyone.
Also, we charge a monthly fee because we constantly update the software to provide more valuable SEO for our customers. Our customers get a stress-free experience this way. And we also provide quality customer service 🙂

Florin, that is incorrect. The license information shows where you, the author, decide to put it. You should put it in the main description with at least a mention that there is a license.
Also keep in mind we have some rules about using licenses. You can use them if you’re providing a clear service, that is the plugin is calling back to your servers to perform actions. Otherwise we specifically do not permit a license just to charge people or to enable/disable features. Please review http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/about/guidelines/ sections 5 and 6.
I’m on the road right now, but I’ll review your plugin when I get to the office to make sure you’re abiding by those guidelines.
Thanks for the review and your time. We will definitely place text on the front page as well, in order to avoid such situations as the present one 🙂
In the text file, there is a certain place for License, that is then automatically placed at Other Notes. This is how it happened.
The plugin interacts with our servers and that is how users get all the info presented to them in the Keyword Research tool, the inspiration box and the SEO Live assistant. We have been careful to respect the guidelines as they are important for keeping plugins relevant and useful 🙂
Our purpose is to offer our customers value and the feedbacks that we received via email, facebook, twitter, the happiness meter in the plugin and the WP listing validate this.
Florin’s not violating any guidelines as I can tell, so no issues from the plugin review team here.
When someone’s providing a service, on their own servers, they’re permitted to charge. Making it more obvious to the end user is a good thing, and I can totally see why Florin thought ‘Hey, I’ll make a section for licenses! That’s obvious!’ Our readme parser isn’t quite THAT good 😉
Its nice to see that the plugin now has the monthly payment details on the description page.
At least people like me, who go no further than this page and screenshots are able to see that it is a paid product.
Apart from the monthly payments it is a good product, and support is excellent. Its a shame they do not offer a one off payment.
Good luck for the future.
