SEO Ultimate WordPress SEO Plugin Version 5.7 Released!

SEO Ultimate, the free WordPress SEO plugin from SEO Design Solutions, has been upped to version 5.7. The latest round of upgrades includes these new features and improvements:

SEO Ultimate: WordPress SEO Plugin

  • Meta Description Editor has a new {excerpt::autogen} variable that lets you autogenerate meta descriptions using the first words of your posts. This can be a huge timesaver, especially if your posts’ first content is already primed for SERP clickthroughs.
  • Link Mask Generator has a new options page that lets you change the alias directory from the default of /go/ to a value of your choosing (so you can funnel your links through, for example, the /out/ directory, producing masked URLs like http://www.example.com/out/masked-link/)
  • Fans of the Meta Keywords Editor will be happy to hear that this module has been upgraded with new automation functionality that can auto-generate keywords for a post/page based on its categories, tags, and custom taxonomy terms. It can also auto-generate keywords based on the most common words used in the post (you can customize how many words are used). Meta Keywords Editor pulls from Slug Optimizer’s stopwords list to ensure that common/grammatical words are eliminated, leaving only the rich keywords behind.
  • Meta Description Editor now includes a mass-editor for categories, tags, and custom taxonomy terms, giving you fine-grained control over the SERP appearance of every taxonomy term on your WordPress blog. This feature enables you to optimize even your term archive pages for SERP performance.
  • Meta Robot Tags Editor now gives you fine-grained control over the index/noindex status of each individual category, tag, and custom taxonomy term, instead of forcing you to make a global index/noindex blanket rule for all your categories or all your tags.
  • Meta Robot Tags Editor now includes a mass-editor for posts, pages, and custom post types, allowing you to go back through your old content and easily set the index/noindex and follow/nofollow meta tags for each one.
  • The new “Nofollow Manager” module lets you set the nofollow attribute on entire swaths of links on your site. Although Google has deprecated the use of nofollow for PageRank Sculpting, if you’re transitioning from another SEO plugin to SEO Ultimate, Nofollow Manager can help you maintain your existing settings if you’d rather take an “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” approach.
  • And many, many more bugfixes and improvements.

If you’re already one of the thousands who use SEO Ultimate, you can upgrade for free via your WordPress plugin admin section. If you’re a new user who’d like to take advantage of this powerful free plugin, you can download it from WordPress.org today.

    {excerpt::autogen} seems not to work.

    I used the therm {excerpt::autogen} in metha desciptions.

    When i take a look aut the Code View (Browser) i can see the folowing therm

    You see….. the variable itself and not any other text as i think it should be.

    @Robert: Are you putting the {excerpt::autogen} variable in the “Post Description Format” box of the Meta Descriptions Editor page under the “SEO” menu? That’s the only place it works.

    @John,

    I tried your instructions but still it doesn’t work for my website. I leave the field of the specific page empty. The other pages I want the metadescription I already generated. So I want the auto-generate only for one page. Possible?

    @Robert: Are you trying to autogenerate an excerpt for a page or a post?
