A large number of DesignM.ag readers are WordPress users and/or developers. We’re happy to have 5 Classic Licenses of the wpSEO plugin to be given away to readers of DesignM.ag!
If you’re not familiar with wpSEO, it is a premium plugin ($24.95 for the classic license which is for use on a single site) that allows you to control a wide range of factors that are influential for search engine optimization.
To see all of what wpSEO can do please visit their Functions page, and we’ll give a quick summary here. Of course, wpSEO gives you control over the page/post title that are used on the front page, single posts, pages, category and archive pages, and just about any other type of page that exists in WordPress.
You also have full control over the meta descriptions and keywords with lots of options. In order to avoid duplicate content you have full control over index/noindex and follow/nofollow on category pages, tags pages, searches, archives, and more. Additional options allow you to prevent indexing of RSS feeds, rename file uploads to use the file name, control the order of meta tags in the source code, and more.
After installing wpSEO and taking a lot through the settings, there really is a lot that you can do to optimize a WordPress-based site for search engines with this plugin. The classic license price of $24.99 is quite affordable for most bloggers, and the deluxe ($64.99) and premium ($124.99) licenses are good options for those who own multiple sites or do client work. Additionally, you can try the plugin for 10 days with full functionality before buying.
