SEOKEY – SEO audit, optimizations and tools


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

SEOKEY: the simplest and most effective SEO plugin

We give you all the keys to succeed:

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

SEO audit

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!

And when you edit a specific content, we also provide you with a full SEO content analysis.

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!

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 already be active?

That’s why SEOKEY automatically deploys SEO improvements without any clicks: we clean your , we disable date archives, we redirect attachment pages 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’ll be able to configure and use SEOKEY much faster than with any other SEO plugin.

With our global and individual content analysis, you will be able to improve each one of our post!

SEO toolbox (redirections, ALT editor, etc.)

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

SEOKEY 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 one (for example, your shop product page with Woocommerce)
  • fast and reliable XML sitemap files for all Search engines (Google, Bing and the others)


With SEOKEY PRO, our audit is more in-depth with a much more thorough analysis of your content, and better advice with data from your Search Console telling you exactly what you need to do !

SEOKEY PRO will also warn you in case of 404 error detected by Google or when WordPress generates an automatic 301 redirect behind your back.

J'utilise ce plugin sur plusieurs de mes sites, en France et aux USA. J'aime la simplicité de mise en place (j'ai utilisé tous les plugins de SEO existant) et les recommandations simples. La réactivité de la team derrière ce plugin est exceptionnelle, normal, vu les compétences reconnues du "papa" de ce plugin, Daniel Roch. Longue vie à SEOKEY.

Voilà une extension WP pour améliorer le référencement de son site web très simple à mettre en place ! Et, cocorico, c'est made in France ! Le suivi est régulier et les performances sont là.

J'ai testé plusieurs d'extensions SEO mais j'avoue que celle-ci est particulièrement facile à prendre en main, très complète et pertinente. J'ai également pu bénéficier de la part du support (Daniel pour ne pas le nommer), de bons conseils et même de rectifications (parfois je ne coche pas les bonnes cases ou j'en coche trop !) Je suis vraiment satisfaite de SEOKey : simplicité, outil tout en un pour un référencement optimisé sans se prendre la tête ! J'ai encore pas mal de travail mais je pense être sur une vraie meilleure voie. Merci !

Public roadmap is here:

= 1.6.3
* Improvement: improved french translations
* Fixed: ‘Website Potential Action’ Schema markup is now only available on your homepage
* DevNote: ‘seokey_filter_schema_org_actions_name’ hook is now also applied to breadcrumbs main name

= 1.6.2
* Improvement: Adding missing translations
* Improvement: Improved metabox display for terms (when adding a new term)
* Fixed: SEOKEY now correctly send 410 headers for old cache files with URl parameters
* Fixed: SEOKEY option disabling author pagination was not working properly

* Fixed: avoid in some cases PHP errors when adding a new post (for authors and editors)

= 1.6.0
* New: multilingual compatibility with WPML and Polylang (WeGlot is coming soon).
* New: full compatibility with DIVI builder.
* New: improved WooCommerce compatibility (audit detection & admin menu for shop page).
* New: (PRO) New audit task for images without alternatives texts in your content but which have one in the media library (this audit task focuses on accessibility issues potentially caused by the automatic addition of this ALT by SEOKEY).
* Improvement: (PRO) keyword density audit task is now much better and handles accents or uppercase words.
* Improvement: (PRO) automatic redirections are now only registered when Google trigger them (it avoids false positives and useless work).
* Improvement: (PRO) traffic audit task is now an information task, not a warning task (it only tells you to keep working, it was not pointing a precise issue to solve).
* Improvement: (PRO) disconnected Search Console notice is now dismissible.
* Improvement: (PRO) improve redirection speed (we now prevent WordPress from guessing URl if current URl is going to be redirected).
* Improvement: change sitemap location to upload folder (better performances).
* Improvement: better help messages for redirection menu.
* Improvement: remove useless checkbox within the image ALT editor.
* Improvement: many French and English typo errors have been fixed.
* Fixed: (PRO) fix Search Console ping message (sometimes, Search Console used to show an error message about unreachable sitemaps)
* Fixed: avoid errors with third party plugins using Bulk option edits within default media library (for example, it removes a fatal error with the Download Monitor plugin).
* Fixed: avoid PHP error when users with author role were trying to access SEOKEY menus.
* Fixed: fix redirections not working when URL had special HTML characters.
* Fixed: fix automatic redirection being registered (but it was already redirected)
* Fixed: fix redirections not working when using specific domain port, for example when using a local WordPress installation with LocalWP.
* Fixed: fix error on Breadcrumbs Schema markup when no „Name“ was given to the website.
* Fixed: fix canonical tags when using unusual permalink structure.
* Fixed: prevent wizard from skipping first step after importing SEO data from another plugin.

* Dev note: sitemaps files will now be stored in a specific folder in uploads/seokey/sitemaps. They will use by default the website language (which will make it easier to switch to multilingual if you want to) : for example „sitemap-index-FRA.xml“. We automatically manage the redirection from old URL to the new one.
