Normally when I set up plugin-level SEO on a WordPress blog, I’ll need 5-8 plugins to provide all the desired SEO functionality. Wouldn’t it be cool if there was one plugin that incorporated all that functionality and more into one easy-to-use suite?
Right now the plugin is in its early stages (currently at version 0.6). There are many more features yet to come; as more functionality is added, I expect SEO Ultimate to become the all-in-one WordPress SEO solution of choice for more people as time goes on.
Current functionality includes the standard All in One SEO Pack features:
- 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 much more. (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
- Footer branding
- WordPress 2.7 menu integration
- Integration with WordPress’s Help system
- Inline phpDoc documentation
Also, be sure to check out this cool auto-installer system I invented. Just type in your blog’s URL, click “Launch Installer,” then click “Install Now,” and voila, SEO Ultimate will be installed on your blog! You can then enable it by clicking the Activate link.

You can also download the zip file. SEO Ultimate requires WordPress 2.7 or above.
