Google first introduced it back in January 2012 in this post. I wanted to do this quick post »

WordPress

After my post about content analysis with the WordPress SEO plugin, which covered the recent updates to that plugin, I got some comments that we should test better, especially because the commenter had issues with a certain slider plugin. I laughed when I read that comment, but then it dawned on me that most in »

In response to a growing demand from people who wanted “bigger” licenses, we’ve added a couple of license options for our plugins. All of them now have a 50 site and a 100 site license option too, at a discount. We’ve also added a Complete SEO bundle that contains our Premium SEO, Local SEO, Video SEO, »

content analysis

We’ve been rather busy with the WordPress SEO plugin the last few days. We did a release yesterday and a quick follow up today to fix a few collisions with other plugins.

While all of the below holds true, we now sell support for our WordPress SEO plugin, through our WordPress SEO Premium product. If you’re in need of support and don’t mind paying: buy that!

21 June 2013 by Joost de Valk » - 89 Comments

Last night I pushed out an update to our WordPress SEO plugin, version 1.4.8. It included a ton of changes including support for the new author stuff Facebook announced yesterday.

I’ve been working on integrating our SEO plugins more deeply with Genesis the last few weeks and something dawned on me.
