Really bad
By , for WP 4.5.3

Does not add OG and Twitter Card markups and blocked Baidu, Yandex and DuckDuck Go search engines as spam referrers. It is a shame for a so-called SEO plugin ! Prefer Yoast !

Used to be great, but it automatically overrides title tags incorrectly
By , for WP 4.1.11

This plugin used to work great, but it has had ongoing issues since around 2.2.7.6. Title tags are automatically defaulted on all my posts / categories to "Blog | Site Name" and are not overridden when I have entered in a unique title, and also it overrides and php programming for custom titles structure.

it DESTROYS your links - ZERO STARS!
By , for WP 4.5

if you install this dont expect to post your links anywhere because this will make them appear wrong, mess up its thumbnail, mess up its meta explanation or mix it up with something from another post etc.

VERY BAD PLUGIN. TOO BAD YOU CANT VOTE ZERO STARS.

They charge for EVERYTHING, even video tutorials!!
By , for WP 4.5

There are many WordPress plugins where there are many free things. Something such as video tutorials being free is common. It's for the community. To HELP people.

But they want you to pay an absurd price even for what most developers happily give away for free.

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:
\wp-content\plugins\all-in-one-seo-pack-pro\aioseop_class.php

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

// GOOD DEVELOPER EDIT: COMMENT THE SPAM & VULNERABILY EXPOSURE OUT
/*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:

// GOOD DEVELOPER EDIT: COMMENT THE SPAM & VULNERABILY EXPOSURE OUT
//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 2.3.6.1 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!
