Slim SEO – Fast & Automated WordPress SEO Plugin

Descrizione

A Fast & Automated SEO Plugin For WordPress

Currently there are many SEO plugins for WordPress in the market. But these plugins often have too many options and are very complicated for ordinary users. Access to their configuration section, you will easily get lost in a maze of explanations and options that you sometimes don’t understand. Besides, there are ads!

So how can an ordinary user use an SEO plugin?

SEO should be an integrated part of WordPress, where users don’t need or need very little effort to configure for SEO. The main reason is that not everyone understands the terms of SEO and how to configure them optimally.

So, we made Slim SEO.

Slim SEO is a full-featured SEO plugin, that’s done right! It provides a complete SEO solution for WordPress where the configuration has been done automatically. Users do not need to care about their complex and semantic options.

4. Schema (Structured Data)

Schema is a way that describes structured data for search engines. Based on the data provided, search engines can show the content in the search results page in a more appealing way.

Slim SEO automatically adds the some structured data to the website via JSON-LD which makes your website more SEO-friendly. Not only schemas are created by the plugin, there are also meaningful connections between them. For example, an article (single post) is the main entity of the current webpage. Slim SEO does that all without any configuration.

FAQ

How meta title tag is generated?

WordPress already has this featured! All we need to do is add theme support for title-tag. By default, the title tag will have the following format:

For homepage: Site title – Site description
For single page or post: Page/Post title – Site title
For other pages: Page title – Site title

This format is pretty good!

How meta description tag is generated?

The meta description tag is automatically generated from the post excerpt or post content (in case you didn’t enter post excerpt). For categories, post tags or custom taxonomies, their description will be used as meta description.

How Open Graph meta tags is generated?

Open Graph inherits the meta title and meta description. For image tag, it gets from the featured image.

For single posts, the plugin also provides detailed information for article section (the first post category) and article tags (post tags). It also provides additional information such as published time and modified time.

Other tags such as url, site_name, type, locale are quite obvious.

How Twitter card meta tags is generated?

Twitter inherits some tags from Open Graph such as title, description and image. So we only need to set the card type to large image, so the posts appear beautifully on Twitter.

How do I set meta tags for my homepage?

If your homepage is a static page, then it’s treated like a normal page. The meta description is generated from page content, and the featured image will be used for Open Graph tags.

If your homepage shows latest posts, then it’s already done automatically by the plugin.

Can I change the meta tags manually?

Yes, you can. When you edit a post or a page, there’s a “Search Engine Optimization” meta box below the editor, which allows you to edit meta tags if needed.

Where is my XML sitemap?

The sitemap URL is located at domain.com/sitemap.xml.

How to remove plugin’s data when uninstalling

Add the following constant in your wp-config.php file:

define( 'SLIM_SEO_DELETE_DATA', true );

It would seem that this plugin is no longer working like it should and would suspect it has something to do with the latest WordPress Update. The SEO Image is no longer displaying!
15 Agosto 2023
Honestly, I have tried so many other SEO plugins and for one reason or another, they rubbed me the wrong way. While I do love it, Squirrly doesn't always play nice with my sites, depending on the plugin stack I'm using at the time. In comes Slim SEO. It is a very friendly plugin because it's lightweight and doesn't try to offer you more than what you need. Couple it with something like Slim SEO Schema and you're quickly on your way to outranking your competition. I leave it to SaaS products to help me with my SEO strategy while I entrust Slim SEO for the SEO execution. No frills, no fluff, no distractions, just a lightweight, *slim* plugin that gets the job done effortlessly. I also love how easily it integrates with Meta Box! Highly recommend Slim SEO if you are just starting out, and even more so if you're an expert. It's going to put you in control of your site right out of the gates.
