Support » Plugin: SEO Defend » Stats are garbage

  • I tested this plugin on 3 different wordpress installations.

    Site 1 was a brand new site with no backlinks and the domain was never registered prior to me registering it. The dashboard widget showed 16/20 for backlinks and 15/25 for algorithm.

    Site 2 has a clean backlink profile and by that I mean the links were generated naturally and are on reputable websites. The dashboard widget showed 18/20 for backlinks and 16/25 for algorithm. All content is original and my attempts to find duplicates scraped by other websites found nothing, yet the plugin reported 18/25 for content.

    Site 3 was a site used for testing blackhat SEO techniques and had a google penalty 2 years ago. The plugin shows 7/25 for algorithm.

    Conclusion: The plugin is used to generate business. Don’t be fooled.

    Thanks for the feedback. The scores within WordPress are currently affected by outages at our data provider. Our in-house crawler is being released in the first week of December and we’re releasing an updated plugin then.

    I do urge you to take another look at SEO Defend once this goes live.
