This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Auto SEO


Auto SEO is a simple way to add all your SEO header tags from a single interface. It will generate new meta tags, replacing any old ones your theme may add already, that are fully customized to target the audience you want. Don’t want to override everything? No problem, you choose what to override and on what post types to do it. Take the tedium out of SEO.

Note: because Auto SEO is designed to override existing meta tags when needed it works a bit differently than other SEO plugins and as such may not work on every theme. While it has been tested with a wide variety of different themes naturally it would be impossible to test them all. If your having trouble getting it to active on your site I’m more than willing to help, just let me know what theme your using and I’ll take a look, contact information inside the plugin.


  • Auto SEO settings page.


  1. Upload the auto-seo directory to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory.

The settings page has notes on their functions and should be self explanatory, but here are the highlights.

  • Active Post Types determines where Auto SEO inserts/replaces meta data.

  • Keyword Sets lets you define sets of keywords to be automagically inserted into the description where you want them, also shows the pool from which meta keywords and chosen.

  • Meta Tag Options let you control what tags are enabled, and set up new title tags, meta descriptions, and the number of keywords as well as override the robots if desired.


Can I translate this plugin into the language of my choice?

Yes. There is a pot file located in the “_l18n” folder in the auto-seo directory. Place your .po and .mo files in that directory names with the appropiate region (i.e. da_DK.po and

I got this great idea, can you implement it?

Probably, let me know and I’ll see if I can work it in there.
