Platinum SEO versus All In One
Or why I switched my blog from All In One SEO to the Platinum SEO plugin
I used All In One SEO WordPress Plugin about a month. It worked good for me. Thanks to the author. But there is another side of the medal. What I don’t like from the very beginning it is the very aggressive and annoying donation requests and self-advertising this plugin shows on its Settings page. “I enjoy this plugin and have made a donation” checkbox uses some form of psychologic pressure on the plugin user to extort something from him.

Plugin uses AJAX to send data to the server and get it back. So no page reload is required. The plugin stores its counters in its own MySQL table. Only one “thanks” for the same IP-address can be permitted. Plugin can skip all further “Thank you” clicks from that IP-address once it is automatically registered. Total quant of thanks is displayed on the button just to the right from the click invitation text. Invitation text is ‘Thank You’ by default, but it can be changed at the plugin Settings page. Plugin has wide range of options to customize its behaviour and presentation. Live preview will help to select more suitable style.
