WPSSO – Advanced and Easy Plugin for Social Meta Tags / SEO, Schema Markup and Knowledge Graph

Περιγραφή

WPSSO uses your existing content to create meta tags + Schema markup — there’s no need to manually enter / configure any additional settings or values, but if you want to, you can customize just about anything and everything. 😉

WPSSO creates complete and accurate meta tags + Schema markup — including hashtags, video seo, e-commerce products, author profile / authorship, co-authors, publisher information, ratings, event details, recipe information, and much more — all from your existing content.

WPSSO offers special optimization features for Pinterest — providing an image for the Pin It button, excluding non-relevant images, and preventing conflicts between incompatible Pinterest and Facebook meta tag values.

WPSSO includes advanced quality control features and options — checking minimum / maximum image dimensions and aspect ratios, verifying the webpage for duplicate meta tags, showing notices for missing and required images, along with theme header template validation.

WPSSO loads only the library files and object classes it needs, keeping it small, fast, and yet still able to support a wide range of 3rd party integration features. WPSSO requires PHP v5.3 or better, and is fully compatible with PHP v7.

Insanely good support. 10/10

This is my first time reviewing a plugin. I’m a mid-level WordPresser (not a pro by any means) and never felt the urge to comment on a plugin as I don’t necessarily always know what the shortcomings may be from a coding standpoint. But my experience with this plugin developer blew me away. I’ve never seen anything like it.

The plugin itself (and possibly some extensions) automatically inserts all the correct markup for every major social media platform. I faced a very particular conflict with the caching system of my host WPengine not interacting properly with Pinterest. This was not a problem with the plugin but JS stuck with it for several days doing diagnostics and updating the WPSSO plugins to work around the caching issue. He communicates promptly and goes beyond the call of duty to make it work for you.

10/10

Great plugin and SEO tool

I discovered a lot of errors on my site through Google Webmaster Tools. This plugin is a brilliant solution to my markup and structured data problems.
Of course I went too far with it and messed up my site display. I got on to support and JS replied within the hour and found a thorough solution and fix. Cheers JS!

Great plugin

Does what it says it does. Support is fantastic. Can’t recommend it highly enough.

Σύνοψη αλλαγών

New versions of the plugin are released approximately every week (more or less). New features are added, tested, and released incrementally, instead of grouping them together in a major version release. When minor bugs fixes and/or code improvements are applied, new versions are also released. This release schedule keeps the code stable and reliable, at the cost of more frequent updates.

See release early, release often (RERO) software development philosophy on Wikipedia for more information on the benefits of smaller / more frequent releases.
