New in 1.6: multilingual compatibility with WPML and Polylang + compatibility with DIVI, Elementor and WooCommerce.

Coming soon in 1.7: Major SEO audit improvement for both Free and PRO versions.

SEOKEY: the simplest and most effective SEO plugin

SEOKEY’s goal is simple: to make SEO easier for everyone.

SEOKEY tells you what you need to do next to boost your SEO! Discover our genuine SEO audit tool, our customized advice for each content, our automatic SEO optimizations and our easy-to-use settings.

Since 2008, we have been improving our SEO expertise for all types of websites: B2C or B2B, for small websites or large international corporations. When it comes to WordPress, we made a straightforward observation: current SEO plugins are too complex, they don’t guide users in their next actions, and the have a number of technical SEO weaknesses.

SEOKEY Free contains everything you need to manage your SEO: meta tags, redirects, alt editor, and much more. With the SEOKEY PRO plugin, go even further with an enhanced audit, Google bot monitoring, and Search Console connection.

SEOKEY is the all-in-one plugin to rank higher in search engine, audit your content, and determine the NEXT action you should take.

Why SEOKEY is different?

We give you all the keys to succeed in Search Engines :

  • A global SEO audit tool for WordPress with practical SEO advice
  • Automatic SEO technical optimizations without frustrating options
  • A complete SEO toolbox (redirections, image ALT editor, etc.)
  • A really easy-to-use interface

WordPress SEO audit

Global SEO audit for WordPress

There is no point in getting tips on a single content if you don’t have the whole picture. With SEOKEY, you can audit all your content in one go to improve your visibility in Google and other Search Engines!

You can then easily consult all your SEO issues, or see at a glance which content is causing the most problems.

Advice with real SEO data in SEOKEY PRO

With PRO version, we go even further with a more detailed analysis of 100% of your content: we give you a main directive based on real traffic data: optimize, change the keyword to target, do nothing, wait, etc.

SEOKEY PRO is the only SEO plugin providing a global SEO audit based on real trafic data!

Individual SEO audit for each content

When you edit a specific content in WordPress, we also provide you with a full SEO content analysis.

With PRO version, we also display your SEO data for each content: clics, impressions, visible keywords count

Automatic SEO technical optimizations

In WordPress, many SEO optimizations should be active by default. This is our belief as SEO experts since 2008. So why would we force you to check and fill in some options when they should always be active?

That’s why SEOKEY automatically deploys SEO improvements without any clicks: we clean your , we disable date archives, we redirect attachment pages, we convert 404 erros on old cache files to 410, and so on.

Easy-to-use interface

Unlike other SEO plugins, SEOKEY’s interface is by far the simplest one. We’ve removed all unnecessary options, and simplified the ones that will really improve your visibility.

The result: you can configure and use SEOKEY much faster than with any other SEO plugin.

With our global and individual content analysis, you’ll be able to correct all your content immediately!

SEO toolbox (redirections, images ALT editor, etc.)

SEOKEY provides you with all basic features needed in SEO, without installing third-party plugins or the need to upgrade to the PRO version.

Our SEO plugin offers a complete WordPress SEO toolbox:

  • easily manage your 301 redirects
  • an alternative text editor to modify them all in one place (and we use these new ALT texts to fix images without one within your contents)
  • 100% automatic generation of your markup (Local Business, Organization or Person, Breadcrumbs, Website)
  • we create new management pages for your Post Type archives if you have any (for example, your shop product page with Woocommerce)
  • fast and reliable XML sitemap files for all Search engines (Google, Bing and the others). We physically create these files to boost crawling and indexing speed!

SEOKEY WordPress SEO Plugin: PRO version will take you even further!

With SEOKEY PRO, our audit is more in-depth with a much more in-depth analysis of your content.

In just a few clicks, create and connect to Google’s search console to retrieve your real traffic data and automatically submit your sitemap files.

SEOKEY PRO also improves our advice for each content with data from your Search Console telling you exactly what you need to do!

With this enhanced version, we will also warn you in case of 404 error detected by Google or when WordPress generates an automatic 301 redirect behind your back. With a simple clic, you can fix them!

Using Yoast for years, I now switch all my sites under SEO Key which I find much clearer and more understandable. If the free version already allows a lot of things, the audit of the pro version is extra as well as the functions offered. The Cherry on the cake is that the Pro version is reasonably priced compared to the market leader!

J'utilise Seokey sur tout mes sites à présent, j'ai connu cette application lorsque j'ai eu un soucis de redirection de page , la résolution à été ultra rapide. Lorsque je l'ai utilisé pour mon seo j ai été un peu perturbé par le manque de lumières vertes que l'on connais sur un concurrent, mais très vite l'audit chiffré et la bonne santé de mon site m' a rassuré, j'ai apprécié que cela soit en français , les explications sont très simples, l'audit SEO permet de faire avancer très vite , il détecte toutes les erreurs et permet d'y remédier en un clic exemple manque de tag sur l'image, titre trop court, mots clés à définir ou expression pour la description des publications pages, articles etiquettes etc... Bref je ne peux que recommander, l'essayer c'est l'adopter, cela vous facilitera la vie, et qui plus est autant aider une startup Française n'est ce pas !

Après avoir testé, sur un site en staging, presque tous les plugins SEO disponibles, j'ai finalement opté pour SEOKEY et, ce sans regret. Le version "free" permet déjà pas mal d'optimisation mais la version payante ( peu coûteuse en fait ) affine encore la précision et offre l’intégration avec la Google Search Console, ce qui n'est pas à négliger. Rapide, stable ( à la différence d'un, en particulier, mais chuuuut ), didactique et bénéficiant d'une réactivité hors pair, mail et téléphone, de la part de son développeur. Je recommande chaudement cette extension.
Tîrmeh 11, 2023
J'apprécie cette extension spécialement pour sa fonction d'audit qui aide vraiment les moins initiés en SEO à hiérarchiser ses actions. Je la recommande vraiment, et l'équipe de développement est particulièrement à l'écoute. C'est un plaisir de travailler avec une extension telle que celle-ci.

This plugin caused the website to crash, it altered the htaccess file in its own way which we had to figure out & reset ourselves. Then it kind of hacks the xml sitemap & robots.txt file, and there is no way you can undo it. Have removed the plugin, even manually deleted the file it created, and flushed the database tables, but it still exists. not recommended at all

An easy-to-use, efficient plug-in with intelligent ergonomics. Designed by SEO pros to be used by as many people as possible. I've installed it on many of my clients' sites and they're very satisfied.
