SEO Ultimate is an all-in-one SEO plugin with these powerful features:

Title Tag Rewriter

Out-of-the-box functionality puts your post titles at the beginning of the <title> tag for improved keyword SEO.

Deeplink Juggernaut

Use the power of anchor text to boost your internal ranking SEO paradigm.
Searches your site’s content for anchor texts you specify and automatically links them to a destination of your choosing. Lets you easily build internal links to URLs, posts, pages, attachments, custom post type items, categories, terms, post format archives, and custom taxonomy term archives.
Customize footer links for your entire site and/or on a page-by-page basis.
Easily select autolink destinations using autocomplete textboxes that scour your site’s content and taxonomy terms to find the link destination you’re looking for.
Autolinks point to the objects themselves, not to their URLs, so if you change the URL of a post or category on your site, the autolinks automatically adjust.
Avoid over-optimization penalties by controlling the maximum number of autolinks added to each post/page, the maximum number of times an anchor is linked per post/page, and/or the maximum number of times a post/page can link to the same destination.
Reduce autolink frequency by a given percentage (globally or per-link) with the frequency dampener feature. (Useful for large sites.)
Choose whether or not posts can link to themselves and/or to the current URL with a few simple checkboxes.
Apply the nofollow attribute on a per-link basis. (Perfect for automatic affiliate links.)
Exclude specific posts/pages from having links added to them, if desired (e.g. contact pages, the homepage, etc.).
Import/export your links as CSV files.
Create links pointing to draft posts that will auto-enable when the post is published!
Build internal links to your posts from within the WordPress post editor! Use “Instant Post Propulsion” technology to automatically link your old posts to new ones.
Lets you enable “Silo Linking” mode so that posts only link to other posts in the same category.

Open Graph Integrator

Out-of-the-box functionality autogenerates Open Graph data for your homepage, posts, pages, attachments, custom post type objects, and user profile pages.
Fine-grained controls allow you to customize the Open Graph title, image, and content type for every single post, page, attachment, and custom post type object on your site.
Mass-editors let you specify Open Graph data for multiple posts and pages at a time.
Includes support for summary-style and photo-style Twitter Cards.
Lets you fix the official Facebook/Twitter HTML so that it validates as XHTML or HTML5.

Rich Snippet Creator

Easily add rich snippet code for reviews and places.
Attract more search traffic with eye-catching supplementary SERP data.
Supports the new format used by Google, Bing, Yahoo, and Yandex.

Author Highlighter

Generates code so that when one of your site’s posts appears in Google search results, the Google+ profile picture of the post’s author will appear alongside it.
Includes support for both single-author and multi-author site setups.
Supports author highlighting for posts, pages, attachments, custom post types, the homepage, archive pages, and author pages.
Inserts a “Google+ Profile URL” field on the WordPress user profile editor, so that users can insert their Google+ URL and enable author highlighting on their posts.

Link Mask Generator

Generate robots.txt-blocked “link masks” (e.g. that pass-through to an external URL.
Mask links on a per-link, per-post basis so you can exert fine-tuned control over your posts’ linkflow.
Create global link masks that apply across your entire site.
Change /go/ to a directory of your choosing.
Link masks provide a modern replacement for the deprecated, nofollow-based “PageRank Sculpting” technique.
Perfect for affiliate marketers and SEO-savvy bloggers.

Go beyond WordPress’s basic canonical tag functionality with SEO Ultimate’s support for category/tag/date/author archives.
Redirect requests for non-existent pagination with a simple checkbox.

404 Monitor

Improve the visiting experience of users and spiders by keeping tabs on “page not found” errors. (Use a redirection plugin to point dead-end URLs to your content.)
Find out what URLs are referring visitors to 404 errors.
The default settings hone in on the most important errors by only logging 404s that either have a referring URL or are generated by a search engine spider.
If desired, ignore 404s generated from specific URLs or wildcard URL patterns.

Permalink Tweaker

Lets you remove the permalink base for categories, tags, and/or custom taxonomies.
For example, enable category base removal to convert into, and then pair that with a /%category%/%postname%/ permalink to enable some serious SEO siloing action.
The “URL Conflict Resolution” setting lets you arbitrate between pages/terms when taxonomy base removal causes their URLs to conflict

Meta Robot Tags Editor

Add the <meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow" /> tag to archives, comment feeds, the login page, and more.
Set meta robots tags (index/noindex and follow/nofollow) for each individual post, page, category, tag, and post type archive on your blog. Also supports custom post types and custom taxonomies.
Avoid duplicate content SEO issues with the recommended noindex settings (see built-in module documentation for details).
Give instructions to search engine spiders if desired (noodp, noydir, and noarchive).

The Siloed Categories widget makes it drag-and-drop-easy to construct siloed navigation on your site.

I installed SEO Ultimate and my site broke. What do I do?
If you get an error message or your screen goes blank after you activate SEO Ultimate, it’s likely because your site ran out of memory. A common site memory limit is 32 megabytes. SEO Ultimate uses only 5 megabytes of memory, but combined with WordPress and your other plugins, you may be running over the limit. Try increasing your memory limit to “64M” (64 megabytes) in your wp-config.php file, or contact your web host for assistance. (Note: The amount of site memory has nothing to do with the amount of your computer’s memory.)

I upgraded SEO Ultimate and something broke. What do I do?
If a new version of SEO Ultimate introduces a bug, you can easily revert back to the previous version you were using. Just go to the Settings > SEO Ultimate page and click on the “Downgrade” tab. (Downgrading is available most of the time, but if the new version upgraded the plugin’s settings infrastructure, SEO Ultimate won’t let you downgrade, since doing so would cause you to lose your settings. There may be other cases in which downgrading isn’t available or causes problems; it’s an unsupported feature, but should work in most cases.)


What’s the minimum version of WordPress required to run SEO Ultimate?
WordPress 3.3 is required. SEO Ultimate would generate PHP errors if you tried to run it on an earlier version, and so it will simply refuse to activate on any version of WordPress that’s older than 3.3.

Will SEO Ultimate work on multisite setups?
Yes. SEO Ultimate versions 7.2.6 and later are designed to work on networks running WordPress 3.3 or later.

Which browsers work best with the SEO Ultimate administration interface?
SEO Ultimate’s administration interface occasionally uses some HTML5 features. All modern browsers support these features with the exception of Internet Explorer. Don’t worry, you’ll still be able to use the administration interface with Internet Explorer, but you’ll get the best experience if you use another browser. (Note that this only applies to the browser you use. The visitors to your website, on the other hand, can use whatever browser they want.)

General FAQ

Why “SEO Ultimate” instead of “Ultimate SEO”?

Where’s the documentation?
SEO Ultimate’s documentation is built into the plugin itself. Whenever you’re viewing an SEO Ultimate page in your WordPress admin, you can click the “Help” tab in the upper-right-hand corner to view documentation for the area you’re viewing.

How do I disable the attribution link?
The attribution link is disabled by default. It only appears if you enable it. You can re-disable it the same place you enabled it: under Settings > SEO Ultimate.

Open the editor, click the “Screen Options” tab in the upper-right-hand corner, and uncheck the “SEO Settings” checkbox. Note that the box’s visibility is a per-user preference.

Why did some of the textboxes disappear from the “SEO Settings” box?
The “SEO Settings” fields are added by your modules. The “Title Tag” field is added by the Title Tag Rewriter module, the “Meta Description” field is added by the Meta Description Editor module, etc. If you disable a module using the Module Manager, its fields in the “SEO Settings” box will be disabled too. You can re-enable the field in question by re-enabling the corresponding module.
