Ditching SEOPressor Was A Tough Decision …… And I took It.

You heard it right. I ditched one awesome SEO plugin. On TinyBlogger, I don’t use SEOpressor to take care of my On-Page SEO needs. You might be thinking I am one stupid blogger to let go of the currently ruling SEO plugin. Well, I am not that stupid as you think. Maybe you will believe me to be smarter after reading this post.

Just one more thing before I actually start the post. The content and each and every word of it is written on my personal experience and on my views only. No one has to do anything with the post. Plus, No hard feelings if you love the plugin.


Why SEOPressor is the best SEO Plugin ?

You all might have read about this a thousand times on almost all top blogs. The reason why SEOPressor is the best is that it has the ability to take your post to #1 on Google, if you know how to choose proper keywords.

Whenever you write a post and choose a keyword for the post, SEOPressor will analyze the post completely and will give you the best analysis. Whether you have added a relevant image and placed an ‘alt’ attribute to it, does your post has proper keyword density or not, it will check if your post consists relevant heading tags and moreover it will also check for the keyword placement. And much more than that.

What else do you want ?? SEOPressor takes care of all the things that are required to dominate search engine results and that’s the reason why it is the best.

Am I stupid to say No to SEOPressor ?

No, not at all. I am not stupid to say goodbye to a plugin of a high stature. But there were some reasons for that tough decision.

SEOPressor is a plugin that concentrates only and only on On-Page optimization. It means that it will take care of only your blog posts. Now that it only takes care of your posts, you will need another SEO plugin like Yoast SEO or All in One SEO to optimize your whole blog for search engines. So now you will have two plugins for the same task, i.e. taking care of SEO.

With SEOPressor, you can’t add meta tags or meta description or add proper title tags or do proper SEO settings that a search engine spider can see. You can’t even add meta description to your blog posts with SEOPressor. I think meta description is quite important when it comes to ranking in SERPs.

To do all this stuff, you need another plugin like Yoast SEO or All in One SEO Pack. I use Yoast SEO and most of the bloggers too use Yoast SEO as it is free and one of the best SEO plugins today. I would recommend Yoast SEO plugin to everyone who wants better SEO results for their blog.

All that was enough for me to delete SEOPressor as it was just adding extra load to my blog. And I hit the delete button and it was gone.

You Should do the same but wait ……

After reading the above paragraphs, don’t just go and remove the plugin. Wait a minute, I am not finished yet. If you delete SEOPressor, you will regret later.

So now you will ask, why did I delete it ? The answer’s simple, I knew how it worked and what it did.

When I decided to start a new blog (TinyBlogger), I wanted it to be the best from every part. I had no intention to use two plugins for the same task. So I was having a close observation on SEOPressor when publishing a post on my tech-blog. I was noting down each and everything that it highlighted. I became quite familiar with its working and then after I was able to get a SEO score of approximately around 85-90% on every post, without even paying attention to SEOPressor.

Update: SEOPressor creator Daniel Tan is all set to launch the all new SEOPressor 5 plugin. To know more about the plugin, read my in-depth SEOPressor 5 Review.

Now that I was completely familiar with the On-Page optimization techniques, learned from SEOPressor, I didn’t need the plugin anymore. If you can do anything manually then why to add extra load to the database, even if its negligible.

You too can remove the plugin from your blogs but only after you know how it works and on what points it work. Then you are free to go ahead. But only proceed if you are confident, otherwise stick to the plugin as it is the best SEO plugin. Got my point.

Your Turn.

That was a tough task for me for sure. Now I am looking forward to some great feedback. Did I take the right decision of ditching SEOpressor or I am at fault ? Our beginning question – Do you think I am a fool or do you believe now that I am smart ? So, Ditching SEOPressor – thumbs up or thumbs down ?

      Hey Kulwant,
      Nice to see you here.

      Thanks that you liked the article πŸ™‚

    SEOPressor is a great pluging to optimize your article for SE. You have pointed out an importand weakness bro – this plugin does not deal with meta data. Most pro templates are already handling this though. That eliminates the need for 2 SEO plugins. My template for example fully handles meta data for my blog so I guess with SEOPressor, I’m complete.
    What do you think

    • Arbaz Khan Post authorReply

      Hi Enstine,
      Thanks for the superb feedback. I forgot that point that many template and frameworks now fuels the SEO needs of a blog. In that case, SEOPressor is a great pick and will only help you get to top of SERPs.
      Thanks for the feedback and keep pointing out all the loopholes in my posts πŸ™‚

    Hi Arbaz,
    I never use SEO Pressor before so thanks for the explanation. I am use Yoast SEO Plugins in my wordpress blog.

    In case of SEO it is a must know aspect for every bloggers.

    • Arbaz Khan Post authorReply

      Thanks Okto for your comment.
      SEOPressor is a really good plugin and the combination with Yoast is deadly but you can rely on Yoast if you know all the aspects of On-Page optimization πŸ™‚

    Yup agreed with you Arbaz, You don’t need to use two SEO plugins on your blog and If SEOPressor doesn’t allow you to ad meta tags and meta description than there’s no need to use this plugin.

    I’m using All in one SEO from long time and I’m happy with it, while I think SEO WordPress by Yoast is also a good choice.

    • Arbaz Khan Post authorReply

      Hi Ehsan,
      Using two SEO plugins can add to the load time and if you know the working of one plugin then why to install it. I haven’t used All in one SEO but I have heard of it and it is one of the best SEO plugins available today. I am quite happy with Yoast SEO.

    Hi Arbaz, I can understand why you want to reduce the number of plugins being used on your WordPress blog.

    In my case, I use Thesis Theme which covers the SEO for my blog – but I need SEOPressor to help me manage my guest authors. It seems like the hardest thing for some bloggers to understand is the use of H2 and H3 headings. I would say that 80% of my guest authors leave them out even though I have clear instructions that they need to include them. For some reason they “forget” to include the internal links or they think that I should be doing that task.

    Of course I disagee, but either way SEOPressor will warn me about these mis-steps and also keep count of the percentage of keywords being used. There is no way I could do that without the plugin.

    Thanks for your honest review Arbaz!

    • Jason Mathes Reply

      Ileane – I end up turning down about most? of the guest posts that I receive because of that. I don’t have time to edit the entire article because they were too lazy to format it correctly. If I give you access to post your article in WordPress? At least add the correct H1, H2, H3 tags and format the article correctly!

      I don’t mind taking care of the rest – tweaking the title, adding internal links, making sure if I can monetize it to do it tastefully, and add the keyword myself!

      But at least show the basic courtesy of formatting your articles! *yeesh*

  7. Kamlesh Nishad Reply

    Awesome post explained well SEOPressor is the best and important seo plugin for wordpress blog. Every blogger must use this plugin in order to increase search engine result page.

  8. Jason Mathes Reply

    I’ve only used Yoast’s plugin since I started my own blog. If you understand the basics of keyword research and especially of using proper title, keyword, and the meta description you are pretty much set to getting at least seen in the search engines.

    The trick is how to get to the top. And that is full of debate. My best advice that I can tell anyone? If you have an article written. Think on how people are going to be searching for it? Then optimize for PEOPLE not the search engines. If you do that? Then you’ll be surprised how many articles will appear higher in the search results then just relying on a plugin to do all the work.

    Dear friends

    I suggest you use both..since you’ve probably used YOAST before installing SEOPressor. Doesent hurt your page that much, even more…I think you’ll get better results… IMHO

    • Arbaz Khan Post authorReply

      Hey Slovenia,
      Yeah I know that the combo of both the plugins work great but I understood how SEOPressor worked and so I removed it.
      However I recently added the latest version of the plugin, i.e. SEOPressor V5 to my blog and fell in love with it. Its amazing and after teaming it up with Yoast SEO plugin, it got even stronger.
      You can read my review of SEOPressor V5.

    Hey Arbaz,

    I’m more thankfull for bloggers that compare stuff than plguin itself πŸ™‚ Without guys like you we’d all be stumbling in the dark πŸ™‚

    I just bought V5 yesterday…truly fantastic plugin and I suggest it to everyone.

    The only problem I have is with LSE keywords…for some reason plguin does not accept my BING API key…do you maybe have some answer to that? I’ve followed aevery step of getting API key and still no success..
