  • Second the above! I am honestly blown away by the greediness of the developers of this plugin. I was contacted by my host due to server load issues and did a Pingdom test on our homepage. We scored 70, with multiple Fs. There were OVER 30 redirect chains (tracking pixels and more garbage) and I couldn’t figure out where they were coming from… Thankfully I saw this post and uninstalled this plugin. Guess what? They’re ALL GONE. I’m now scoring 99% and literally ALL the tracking/redirect chains are gone.

    For SHAME. Do NOT DOWNLOAD THIS PLUGIN!

    Thanks for this post!

    I finally discovered from where the redirects came!

    Using https://gtmetrix.com to test one of my websites I found several redirects and the reason was this plugin, VERY BAD PLUGIN. My speed score and other performance values increased of 30-40%!

    I’m going to disinstall this pluing on all my websites!
