in WordPress SEO by Jeffrey_Smith

It came to our attention that after we published the last version update for SEO Ultimate 7.6.2 that some users had experienced data loss for some or all of the title tag rewriter and code inserter settings from 7.6.1.

SEO Ultimate 7.6.3.1 Released

The first thought, “this is tragic”, and rightfully so, however thankfully, this should be fixed in the new version 7.6.3.1 as 7.6.2 was practically creating parallel options instead of referring to the legacy settings in the wp_options table (whew).

The new version 7.6.3.1 should point to old data from 7.6.1 (unless some other type of reset occurred) meaning upon activation, your legacy meta data (and code inserter data) should be intact.

It’s times like this you wish you had that little doohickey from Men in black that erases memory (what was it called again?, ah yes, the Neuralizer). However, an apology for making you panic is more appropriate and transparent, so, we are truly sorry if you were affected by this oversight.

This never happened ;)

But remember, this incident never happened!

So, What Else is New?

Well, since the hood was already open, we couldn’t resist adding another tweak to the recently added Open Graph integrator settings on the page / post level.

Now, instead of having to upload your twitter card images through the media library, copy the URL and then paste into the page / post settings in the Social Media Tab, this little user interface work-flow tweak allows you to add the image on the fly with an image upload button from the page/post SEO Ultimate meta box.

Stored values appear in the Open Graph global setting area which on SEO Ultimate Premium will also feature a quick-upload option (next to each field) to retrofit indexed pages and posts with enhanced Open Graph meta data, but for now, at least you can add your images in a cinch when you post.

The bulk editor feature (which we’ve had for years and some of the other SEO plugins are calling new) e.g. as featured in the Title Tag Rewriter, Meta Description Editor and Open Graph Integrator module is yet another reason to harness the pure on page awesomeness of SEO Ultimate.

Also, as one more little tweak, we’ve added the no follow attribute to the attribution links in the footer and ads, since all the panic recently on how Google is laying the Smackdown on webmasters based on who and how you link (don’t get me started).

Googlebot Attacks do-followed links

My stance on linking is, the link graph and the web existed before Google was in itch in, well…. an idea anyway, and trying to change the way our online culture embraces this population stereotype of linking to others based on intent and what is considered “natural” or “unnatural” based on their moral compass is pure poppycock.

To think its normal to add a nofollow attribute on every outbound link (when most people don’t even know what that is or why they should implement it) because of a deficiency in their algorithm would be as natural as it is for them to pay you every time your site appeared in their index and they monetized it.

So, in all fairness unless we are getting paid for it, it’s highly unlikely that it’s going to happen, so, good luck with that one. If you penalize everybody, there won’t be an index to sell paid click through, so, don’t forget who really matters here (we the people).

But I digress, to me just seems plain wrong (and I said not to get me started)… But, I don’t make the rules, I just know that others still have to play by them. So, since we know it still matters, we have no followed any links from SEO Ultimate just in case to prevent any unnecessary incidents.

That’s it for now, stay tuned for more tips, tactics and tweaks to distinguish your website in search engines.

Over and out!
