SEO consultant and web developer Joost de Valk is nearing completion on a new WordPress SEO plugin. A beta version is being sent out to testers today.
According to the post announcing the beta, the initial version of the plugin will include:
- Post title and meta description meta box to change these on a per post basis
- Google search result snippet previews
- Focus keyword testing
- Meta robots configurations (obsoleting my robots meta plugin)
- RSS footer / header configuration (obsoleting my RSS footer plugin)
- Permalink clean ups (replacing and improving my old permalink redirect plugin)
- Breadcrumbs support, with configurable breadcrumbs titles (obsoleting my breadcrumbs plugin)
- XML Sitemaps
- Basic import functionality for HeadSpace2 and All in One SEO
Today, a copy of the plugin will be sent to subscribers of Joost’s WordPress newsletter for testing. Once finished, the core plugin will be freely available and a series of paid add-on modules will be released.
