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.
