Support » Plugin: All in One SEO Pack » Stop hijacking on updates and asking for reviews

  • Once you stop hijacking the control in the admin panel and stop asking for reviews so impudently 1000 times, I will change my review. 1 star is for these activities for which many have already complained.

    Hey @denra,

    We’re sorry to hear that you’re not satisfied with your user experience.

    Would you be able to explain to us in more detail what problems you’ve run into? You should be able to dismiss the review notice permanently so that it doesn’t reappear again. If this isn’t the case, then please let us know.

    Also, we’re not entirely sure what you mean by “hijacking the control in the admin panel”, so we’d love to know more about that too.

    – Arnaud


    Every time your plugin updates to a new version the admin is redirected to your landing page that describes the update i.e. your about page: /wp-admin/index.php?page=aioseop-about. And your admin notice that begs for a review appears again and again although it is closed many times:
    I personally started voding “Not really” each time I see the message.

    Those are so annoying and you do not fix them for months (I’ve seen them on many websites.)

    When you fix those you may have better reviews from us and others.

    @denra thank you for getting back to us.

    We are aware of the issue with the about page and we’re going to tackle this in the next version of the plugin.

    As for the review notice, we haven’t received in any reports of this yet but we’ll look into this as well.

    We’ll definitely let you know once we know more.

    – Arnaud

    Yes, you have received at least one report more than a month ago:




    @denra thank you for mentioning such behavior of the plugin. I detest Yoast SEO, way too bloated visually and extremely obtrusive; for that reason only, I am not purchasing it. (even if the ads will disappear if purchased, yet I think it will force itself on me like it is the best thing ever happened to my website since the creation of the Internet).

    And you know what, even if the SEO Plugin makes my site 3 times more reachable by Google, I don’t want it. I don’t have to deal with obtrusive plugins and being distracted from why I am at the admin panel. x1000 things tries to get your attention as you walk in abd try to log into your WordPress site for some idea you just had, no need for another thing to distract me and kills my thought or mood.

    ALL in One SEO having a 33% sale kind of seducing, and that’s why I am here at the reviews; yet thanx, kind of I am hesitant now to invest in the plugin and having to deal with an extra attention begging plugin.

    Actually I might go with the route where I can work on a Sitemap XML locally on the PC, like WebSite Auditor and have it uploaded via FTP; the only reason, and this is the only reason, is not to be bombarded by a SEO plugin thinking itself a gift to the internet creatures and the humanity. And it seems with SEO plugins, that is common feature, being obtrusive and invading (regardless if they deliver what they so promise or not at the technical side).

    I did avoid many plugins and page builders for that reason. and Life goes on, in the Internet world..

    So I thank you for bringing that up, what you mentioned, regarding an plugin obtrusiveness is the detrimental factor if I will get a plugin or not. I don’t mind shedding out the money and whatever it cost, but I mind being invaded in my own site.
