SEO Ultimate is a WordPress SEO system for your blog. It incorporates existing SEO features into one suite, improves on those features in the process, and adds new SEO features and tools.
Of course, standard SEO features are included:
- Title rewriting
- Noindex checkboxes
- Meta editing
- Canonical tags
- Post meta box
SEO Ultimate also has these additional capabilities:
- 404 monitoring
- Linkbox insertion
- Settings import/export functions
Upcoming features include robots.txt editing, 301 logging, XHTML validation status monitoring, and countless others. (Not all the features will be finished by the end of the competition, but they’ll come eventually.) If you install the plugin now, you can get these features delivered to you on a regular basis via WordPress’s semi-automatic plugin updater.
I’ve also incorporated these extra features into SEO Ultimate:
- Inline changelogs
- Readme changelog
- Admin footer branding
- WordPress 2.7+ menu integration
- Integration with WordPress’s Help system
- Inline phpDoc documentation
Yes, you can currently get many of these features using other plugins, but I hope you’ll see SEO Ultimate for what it is: the start of something much grander; a modular development framework that lets me rapidly churn out a major new SEO feature on an almost-weekly basis. A few months from now, SEO Ultimate’s featureset will easily eclipse that of any other free plugin available. (The time limits of the competition require me to release a more modest featureset for the time being.)
Support is provided via the WordPress Support system.
