Don’t use BlogPress SEO. Ever.

I don’t make a habit out of “reblogging” or linkdumping, but since a lot of WordPress people seem to be finding their way to my blog, I wanted to write about this.

  3. Yes, I was aware of such “plugin”. Moreover, it allows someone who knows your admin email address to log in without a password! This goes beyond spam…

  4. Thanks a lot. There are many strange and unnecessary plugins out there. I always do google searching for Review of any plugins that I’m about to install. SEO is a tricky game.Sometimes if you don’t know what are you doing, adding plugin can hurt your blog.
