Horrible Script !!! Be Warned
By , for WP 4.3

I have installed it to my website.

1. It adds redirection files into index.php and when visitors come to your website they are redirected to several other websites automaticaly.

2. It corrupts Sql database & wp php theme files and loads a big lag on files during connection.

I definitely warn you to be double careful. It is not safe to install this. It took me to load the entire web portal from the back up files and I lost a huge time fixing these guys script.

WordPress must to remove it from the portal.

Creates security risks and spams code
By , for WP 4.1.1

I owe even a pro version, but I still see my source code (HTML output code) spammed.
This also exposes security risk for hackers, who will search for vunerable version or plugins all over the internet.

This is the notes how to manually remove the spam and security risk from your plugin:

1. Edit this file:

2. FIND: "<!-- All in One SEO Pack Pro" code, and replace the section with the following:

/*echo "\n<!-- All in One SEO Pack Pro $this->version by Michael Torbert of Semper Fi Web Design";
if ( $this->ob_start_detected )
	echo "ob_start_detected ";
echo "[$this->title_start,$this->title_end] ";
echo "-->\n";
echo "<!-- " . __( "Debug String", 'all_in_one_seo_pack' ) . ": " . $aioseop_update_checker->get_verification_code() . " -->\n";

3. Find the '<!-- /all in one seo pack pro' code part, and replace the section with the bellow:

//echo "<!-- /all in one seo pack pro -->\n";

4. Now your WordPress website in spam-aware and more secure.

5. If you don't do this (steps 1 to 4), you will see this spam and security risk in your website HTML OUTPUT CODE:

<!-- All in One SEO Pack Pro by Michael Torbert of Semper Fi Web Design[{DOWNLOADS-COUNT}] -->
<!-- Debug String: {PREMIUM-PURCHASE-CODE} -->
<meta name="description" itemprop="description" content="{SOME RANDOM WORDS}" />
<link rel="canonical" href="http://{DOMAIN_URL}/" />
<!-- /all in one seo pack pro -->

6.If you do the steps 1 to 4, then you will have the clean HTML code in same place, and HTML will only outputs these lines:

<meta name="description" itemprop="description" content="{SOME RANDOM WORDS}" />
<link rel="canonical" href="http://{DOMAIN_URL}/" />

Have a good use :).

The Plugin is good, but the sales of the Pro is misleading!
By , for WP 4.1

Please if you are considering buying the paid version, choose carefully the options. And understand what you are getting into.

When I bought my paid version, I was under the impression that I will pay $39, and after 12 months later be billed $49 every 12 monthly for upgrades and supports.

Little did I know that, 7 days after I paid, I got billed $49 on top of what I already paid $39.

I find that very misleading. And it totally puts me off due to the unclear information.

What is worse is at the same time I actually went on to buy the WPMQ plugin which did the same thing.

It is not a matter of money, but principle. And when I emailed the customer service, it was unresponsive and insensitive to what I have to say.

It is such a shame!

Kill whole WP
By , for WP 4.1

After instaling this plugin. It kicked all my wordpress. I need to remove this plugin manually though ftp. Do not instal it nowdays into 4.1 WP.

By , for WP 4.1

Doesn't work. My biggest regret is not realizing it sooner. As proof, try this: Install the plugin, wait a couple of days, then type into Google a title of your blog, see if it shows up. It WON'T, indicating that this plugin doesn't work ...

By , for WP 4.1

upon further review of how SEO operates I have found this plugin to not only be worthless, but counter-productive.

There are numerous problems beyond this by I will quickly try to summarize:
It repeats the content as the page description, search engines consider this a content injection. If the post's summary is set to be different content such as a teaser then it works fine.

The keywords of the homepage are the currently displayed article. Your homepage is not 1 article (usually), the homepage keywords should be the sites focus or ideals. When the homepage's keywords are changed with the next post, the pagerank is reduced. However, this feature on individual article pages is great (as the keywords remain the same).

It sets the canonical to be the current url The canonical is supposed to be the permanent url of the content when the content is being temporarily featured. It is never supposed to be the current url (redundant, bad).
The homepage declaring itself to be the canonical of the content tells search engines the content is intentionally duplicated, to remain (very bad).
When the homepage changes to the next post, a page declaring to be canonical is changing its content (very bad).
The article's pagerank is reduced because the content is duplicated else where (bad).

A proper SEO pack will set the canonical only on the homepage, to be the url of the content featured, it will set the keywords on the homepage to be the keywords of the site while the keywords on post pages to be the posts topics, and it will not whole-chunk duplicate the page's content as the description.

With current search engine practices, this plugin currently causes more harm than benefits.

If you need/want to use it and don't mind modifying code, simply delete the line that echos the canonical tag and much of its deficiencies are resolved.

This plugin does not work with nginx.
By , for WP 4.0

This plugin does not have the configuration neither gives the instructions to make it work with nginx.

Version on 4.0 is a processor hog
By , for WP 4.0

I upgraded a WP site to 4.0 and then updated the plugins including this one. I noticed an immediate jump in my server utilization from around 40% to 93%. I disable this plugin and it goes back to the 40% I'm accustom to. I'll be returning to Yoast's SEO tool, I'm more comfortable with it anyway.
