Platinum SEO WordPress Plugin versus All In One

Platinum SEO versus All In One

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. Is this plugin really free? I see that it is released under GPL (GNU General Public License) in the all_in_one_seo_pack.php file header. Do you agree that this is a freeware software? My doubts about it were very strong up to this moment. And finally when I had installed version 1.6.7 of All In One SEO I have no any doubts that this plugin is not really freeware. It is definitely adware software. Since version 1.6.7 you will see two large donation extortion and advertisement blocks at the top of the “All In One SEO” plugin Options page. Do I need to see something similar every time at my WordPress admin back-end when I need to change something in my blog SEO settings? No, I do not. That’s why this very popular WordPress plugin lost me as its user.

I started search the another decision for WordPress SEO optimizing. And I found this not so popular but very comprehensive Platinum SEO Plugin. It has full complex of options “All In One SEO plugin” has with some extra functionality. As extra bonus to the former “All In One SEO” plugin’s users it has special “Migrate from All In One SEO” option. With use of this option you can import “All In One SEO” settings into the “Platinum SEO” plugin with one click. I made it. I use this plugin now. It works good. If you don’t like those aggressive advertisement of “All In One SEO” Setting page, you can easily migrate to the “Platinum SEO Plugin”. Thank you, Rajesh, for the good work and courtesy in providing plugin donate link.

    After updating to 1.6.7 All in One, I only got the donation buttons! No options :)

    Thanks for the review. I'm trying Platinum now. The migrate function worked perfectly.

    Hi Vlad
    I am setting up my blog on a local server using XAMPP and testing various plugins. As you say All in one SEO appears to be a popular favourite, but the two big buttons!

    Couldn't believe it… so I found your article and am now looking at Platinum SEO.
    Appears to have all the options of All in one SEO plus extras… and no big buttons.

  • Pritush

    thanks for your suggestion, i will be trying to figure it out there.

  • shinephp

    I'm sorry, but I'm not a SEO expert and not ready to discuss why one option is better than another. As for me the default settings of Platinum SEO are quite good for the start. Since you will know about SEO more you can change it according to your own preferences. May be other readers could help you here or try to get more information from http://techblissonline.com/platinum-seo-pack/

    If you have not All in One SEO installed now and lost its settings there is no need to use Platinum SEO from All In One migration feature. Just use Platinum SEO as fresh installation, put your settings for it from the scratch.

    The target=”new”>SEO Data Transporter could help you. According to the description this plagin has option to move data from Platinum SEO to All In One plugin.

    It will be better to make 1st try on the backup copy at test environment in any case.
