This plugin lowers the ranking of my website
By ,

After being used for a two week, I see that plugin lowers the ranking of my websites. I do not recommend this plugin and is also very limited in free version. On every step reminders and limitations trying to stretch to buy pay version.

Horrid Support - Buggy Plugin - Stay Far Away
By , for WP 4.3.1

Started out looking promising but ended badly. Buggy software and some of the ABSOLUTE WORST SUPPORT I have ever encountered.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS ONE folks.

Anyone that wants to take $20 USD/month from you will have to come up with software a lot more stable than this and support that is light years better if they want to justify anything more than FREEWARE.

MY ADVICE IS TO BYPASS THIS ONE.

Need some more work and features to include

14 days trial :( used on this [Link redacted]/ seems useless ...

very strange behavior
By , for WP 4.2.1

Functions on the text site and allows a quick optimization.

but, the behavior on the images is very strange. I had to desactivate as I do not believe it is the right thing to do.

A commercial product - USD 19,-/month
By , for WP 4.0

Looks good at first glance, seems to work but strikes after a while during the job. It is obviously limited to 15 pages, which you find out, when it strikes. No previous information about this disappointing behavior - strange policy.

Unfortunate Updates Kill Functionality
By , for WP 3.9.2

The latest updates to this plugin remove functionality and limit other features. Taking away substantial features in order to push a paid version of the plugin is highly unprofessional and against the spirit of an open source plugin. Due to such tactics, I cannot recommend this plugin and indeed must recommend against it. There are ways to push pro versions without taking away functionality from existing users. Very distasteful.

Bad WordPress SEO Advice
By , for WP 3.8.1

Did a full review (which I won't post here) and it's a rubbish WordPress SEO plugin, one of the worst I've seen and I've reviewed a lot.

If you are looking to generate low quality content by including other websites images, tweets, links to Wiki and news articles whilst at the same time damaging your sites SEO, go for it, Squirrly is the plugin for you.

Watch out for this awesome SEO advice:

Title is different from domain name: Since the Google Penguin update, the title must be different from the domain name, or you might get banned soon.

And your SEO evidence for this is?

It's a real shame wordpress.org or amazon.com or google.com or about half the internet doesn't follow this BS SEO advice!

Banned for the title being the same as the domain name, LOL.

Interesting, Then Spam
By , for WP 3.8.1

Tested on a test server and I was pleased for a few minutes while I tested. Everything seemed good until I read the negative comments after install.

I uninstalled and verified indeed it does bloat your DB, and considerable email comes from the company. Now I have spam coming in from the email I used for the account.

I can not verify this spam is from them leaking my email, but I am inclined to think it is.

Plus I think this company fenagled the rules to get itself in this repository. It wont be long until they are removed. This is an open source repository and this plugin costs money.

Nice tool but be very clear about the terms .. please
By , for WP 3.8.1

This is by all means not a free plug-in. After 5 articles you need to pay. Although something is written in the FAQ : " Squirrly SEO Plugin free?
Yes, you just have to install the plugin from the WP directory into your site. Then connect with your email to Squirrly. The Free Version will automatically start. Once you have bigger content marketing needs, you can opt-in to upgrade to the PRO Plan.

Bigger is of course can be interpreted in many ways. But it means more than 5 articles a month. Tst tst Squirly not very nice.

SCAM - Not a free plugin
By ,

I don't want to use a plugin marketed through deceptive means. I don't trust it. There appears to be a free option, but it's not the one you initially install with the goodies.

If you don't mind a plugin with a monthly charge. Give it a try. Otherwise, why waste your time.
