All In One SEO Lives On

LinkyLoo, WordPress Plugins

For those of you who may not have heard, it was recently discovered that the popular All In One SEO Plugin for WordPress would be no longer updated or supported past WordPress 2.5.1. The plugin is currently compatible with 2.5.1 but may not work with future versions of WordPress.

However, I have managed to get a hold of the plugin author and he informed me that he believes the plugin will not die. He is currently in discussions with a number of other developers to continue maintenance of the plugin. He also expressed interest in the idea of having the plugin integrated into the core of WordPress.


It looks like the plugin has found a new home. A user who goes by the username hallsofmontezuma who is also the plugin author of the WP Security Scan plugin as well as the SMS Text Message plugin has taken over the development of the All In One SEO Plugin. The plugin can now be found on the Semper Fi Web Design website.

I want to personally extend a hearty thanks to Uberdose who was the original author of the plugin. You can’t talk about WordPress and SEO without mentioning the All In One SEO Plugin. Thanks for deciding not to stop the project but instead, found a new home for it.

I learned about the new plugin author via the Imbloggingthat blog.

    Great that hallsofmontezuma will take the further development of the all in one seo plugin. It`s sure a relief for all users who are using it – and you`re right, nobody can speak about seo and wordpress without mentioning this usefull plugin, of course.

    I`ve used it some months and it was really working nice but then i changed to wpSEO which gives me a little bit more till now.

    Have a nice day!

    That’s good news, thanks for sharing it. I’ve improved my site’s SEO tremendously since installing it.

    This is indeed good news. A handy plugin such as this can definitely not be allowed to die.

    Hats Off to “hallsofmontezuma” for taking on the project! Plugin is great and loosing its functionality would have been rather painful for great many users of the plugin.

    Yay! It’s alive and kicking with an updated version already.

    I gave up on this plugin a while back as wasn’t convinced it helped me. Will give the new incarnation a whirl now…

    I’m glad to hear that this plugin will not go the way of the Dodo. It’s helped dozens of my sites earn some Google-juice all the faster :)

    Great news! aioSEOp is a fantastic tool.
    How come it’s not part of the vanilla install?

  12. Jeff Rothe (7 comments.) says:

    So…do we not get any insight into why the original author decided to abandon the project? Too time intensive for free? I wouldn’t think anything that major would change based on the feature set in 2.6 that would cause much of a headache of compatibility.

    Thanks for the link to I’m Blogging That, Jeff! News of a new author has sure been great to read about.

  14. Jeff Chandler (295 comments.) says:

    @Jeff I will send Uberdose an email to see if I can get him to tell me why he is abandoning the project.

  15. Kristopher LaGrea (1 comments.) says:

    I imagine that a plugin as popular as this, that we will find its functionality incorporated into WordPress (isn’t that happening to the NextGen gallery plugin?).

  16. KodeeXII (1 comments.) says:

    My thank you goes to both previous and current author of the plugin. Hey, there’s already an update. Cool Jeff, I’ve wondered why he is abandoning the project too. Keep us posted.

  17. Mosey says:

    Hallsofmontezuma is also an active contributor to the WP support forums as well, so extra kudos! ;) I have not used the All-in-one SEO plugin, but would definitely like to read up on any feedback!

    this plugin is the best thing around for wordpress. so happy it continues onwards, thanks for the news. personally I would have actually held back from updating wordpress due to this being unavailable on an upgrade.

    This is good news indeed! I’ve had this plugin installed since day one.And it’s been doing wonders for my brand new site. Good to know it will live on with the help of the author of another great plugin I also use the WP Security Scan…

  20. Mike Seddon (1 comments.) says:

    Great news. I can’t imagine life without the All in One SEO pack.

    In fact I’d got so used to it that I had forgotten it was a plugin!

  21. Roni (9 comments.) says:

    probably It would be a disaster if this plugin become not compatible with Future WordPress release. It’s a famous plugin that almost used in WordPress blog. So Thanks for deciding not to stop the project :-)

    Do somebody have experience with the German wpSEO and All in One SEO Plugin? I use wpSEO (, its great) but from WP Version 2.5 onwards the updates won’t be free any more.

  23. Retirement Blog (1 comments.) says:

    One cautionary note: I had to de-activate All In One SEO, after a hacker gained access to my blog, and used the plug-in to mess with my titles. I’m not a coder, so I don’t know how it was done, and this isn’t an effort to shun the plug-in. Just wanted to share my exerience.

  24. sumon khan (1 comments.) says:

    Thanks for sharing the news brother.I am using it successfully on my blog.

  25. Frederick (3 comments.) says:

    Good news, indeed. I was wondering what happened when the stream of fast updates suddenly stopped.

  26. Evan (1 comments.) says:

    That is great news! This plugin does take a lot of time out of having to manually make these modifications to the theme files of WP, and I think that building this functionality into the core WP is the next step. Keep up the good work!

  27. Tarik (1 comments.) says:

    All in One SEO Pack is one of my favorite WP plugins! I’m glad somebody took over the reigns because I would hate to see it die.

    Thanks for the awesome updates!

  28. Gerard (1 comments.) says:

    I hope this thing never dies. Its the main thing that really makes a difference to my blog.

    All in One was awesome, but Platinum SEO plugin improved it. I’m glad Uberdose made such a great plugin though.
