Many professional bloggers and SEO experts have written about The SEO Framework, the Extension Manager, and our philosophy. Below are a few of many excerpts.
All these reviews were written voluntarily. We don’t do affiliate marketing, nor do we pay or nudge users to write reviews.
WPMU DEV — Honestly speaking, when I first heard about SEO Framework I was sure I’d find a plugin that planned to cater to a few SEO basics. Yet, when I first installed it, I could see that I was wrong. The scope of the plugin is broad. Very broad. […] There’s clearly been a lot of work put into this plugin, but it’s not overwhelming in any way. The interface is very intuitive and the tab-based interface makes sure that sections that require a fair amount of parameterization are “simplified” by splitting them over multiple tabs.
Kinsta — The SEO Framework plugin does the trick for those who want a fast, lightweight SEO plugin for WordPress without any ads our upsells. It strips some of the bells and whistles you probably don’t need and focuses on helping out those who are more concerned about keeping site speeds high while also spending less time with confusing SEO articles. It’s often considered as the greatest alternative to Yoast or All in One SEO, and that has much to do with the visual nature of the SEO ratings–along with more flexible options for targeting keywords.
Elegant Themes — [The SEO Framework] offers many of the familiar features you’d expect from other SEO plugins. […] The plugin emphasizes simplicity. It’s a good option for people with little SEO experience and easy to pick up, but it also includes enough options to let you dive deeper. Overall, it feels like a very mature plugin – no wonder it’s become popular in recent times.
Pagely® — Compared to many other SEO plugins, the interface and associated meta boxes feel unobtrusive. Yet, you still have the ability to set up over one hundred settings that the plugin uses to automatically generate outputs for titles, meta information, and structured data, as well as sitemaps, social media meta tags, and plenty more[…] If you want something that’s lightweight but still powerful enough to handle the important details, The SEO Framework is a great option.
Search Facts — At the end of the day, The SEO Framework has all the same important features as Yoast, with none of the drawbacks. It also has much better customer support and the paid version is much cheaper. For these reasons, I am formally changing my default SEO plugin recommendation from Yoast to The SEO Framework. It is simply a much better plugin in every way that matters. It’s faster, cleaner, has fewer bugs and doesn’t constantly annoy you with ads and notifications.
Create and Code — This is one nifty SEO plugin. When you install it, there’s just one long list of options. No bloat. No notifications popping up everywhere… I much prefer how The SEO Framework approaches recommendations. They’re there if you need them, but not in an overpowering way.
Mickey Mellen — Speed: Keeping your plugins light is a big key to a successful website, and this plugin takes a big chunk out of that overhead on your site… Simplicity: The SEO Framework keeps things simple; it has all of the features I need, without all of the extra cruft.
Mbrsolution — Extension Manager will add more power and control over The SEO Framework. It is a must have extension. Sybre Waaijer has done it again with this extension. He truly is going to bring a great SEO service to the WordPress community.
Nose Graze — I started installing The SEO Framework on my new sites instead, and was very happy with it. I also recently migrated Nose Graze over to it as well.
Wpplugincheck — Feature wise it has all the tools usually found in other SEO plugins. It has a metabox on the end of the admin post page where you can individually set SEO settings for that page. You can also set it up for custom post types[…]. As a bonus, you can also setup 301 page redirects from this metabox.
A Design Day — The SEO Framework is not another WordPress gimmick, this a serious SEO plugin by a serious developer. Sybre Waaijer from the Netherlands has developed what I think is the most streamlined SEO plugin yet. It’s fast and light which is unheard of in the WordPress community for SEO plugins.
