We’re adding more checks and will also create tools that fix SEO issues.

What if I want an SEO expert to check the site?

As with any tool, our plugin is very useful for saving time, but it’s not a complete replacement for a manual site wellness check. We recommend hiring an SEO expert for a site audit once or twice a year.

Content is king for SEO. Plugins can help improve ranking, but there are many more factors to rank #1.

Our SEO checklist plugin covers items that we can programmatically check on your site. However, there are certain SEO things that are independent of your site and/or can’t be automatically checked. If you’d like to learn more about those other items, then schedule out some time, grab some coffee, read through our very long ultimate WordPress SEO Checklist.

When you’re done with that one, try our Google Search Console guide for advanced tricks.

That will give you the SEO foundation and ninja skills you need to dominate the rankings.
