Initially loved this plugin and mistakenly thought it was free to use. Turns out it's only free to us for about a week, after which it kills 70% of the features you had a chance to get used to. Quite disappointed to be honest. Bit of an underhanded way of doing business in my eyes. Avoid if you're looking for something free. Rather try Yoast which is free bar one or two things which you can live without. Cheers.
I have been using this plugin for about a month or so. I started with the free version, then opted for the premium version. Yes, it is easy to use when it works.
I spent 2 hours on a single post last night because I kept being told that everything was fine, but the side bar kept telling me I had to add more keywords. Since the post was a draft, I wrote entire sentences with just the keyword and it finally gave me 'approval' after the second sentence. If it were a live post, I would have been screamed at by Google which leads me to my next point.
My site is new and it takes weeks to get a post indexed. Google also will penalize a site that packs content with keywords or a keyword. There are endless complaints and feedback on Google's forum about this very issue.
This plugin is good if a person wants to learn more about how SEO works and have a hands on experience with it. Is it worth $20.00 a month? No. I will be cancelling my subscription. I had better results knowing nothing about SEO on my free blog than the one I'm paying for.
simple to optimize SEO
but too bad, the pricing plan is just too expensive for me to afford it.
I purchased this plugin on the recommendation of a friend who swears by it.
I installed it and immediately saw the benefits, but soon after it crashed my site.
I spent alot of time on the computer with GoDaddy, who was essentially useless, and with Calin at Squirly customer support, who was terrific.
He worked the problem as best he could and gave me a prompt refund.
So although the plugin was incompatible with my site...my buddy still loves it...they are getting the stars they did in this review due to their support.
Didn't really understand what it adds. Not bad necessarily but not that beneficial also.
Excellent support. Nice to see a company that responds well to criticism and gets things sorted.
