For this post I’m going to review the SEO Automatic Plugin produced by Scott Hendison. Some of you may know some of Scott’s other work from Search Commander, Inc. and the WP Core Tweaks Plugin. For this post, we’re going to be looking at his latest creation SEO Automatic for Agencies.
The plugin is designed for agencies and SEO firms who run a lot of site audits and are looking to save time by getting a quick assessment of a website’s technical aspects and identifying any potential problems or issues. The plugin isn’t designed to replace a experienced SEO, but it does automate some of the grunt work. and make you more efficient and profitable. Here’s a video from Scott that talks about the product:
Once you install the plugin (which I have to say went off without hitch), you put a bit of code on page and you’re ready to start running reports. Put the URL in and you’ll get a report back within a minute. Here’s the actual report from my website. I’ve got two important issues: no H1 on my homepage, which is true and probably something I should fix, and no meta keywords. It also tells me I’ve got a some other issues worth noting, like missing alt tags, inline CSS, excesive number of links, page size, and so on. All in all, it’s a pretty useful report that compiled in much less time than it would have take to figure out the same information on my own.
You can use the report as a starting point for SEO audits. If you sell them yourself, you can white label the reports. There are a bunch of other uses for the SEO Automatic tool. Personally I like the idea of being able to run the report while talking to a potential client and getting a really quick idea of what’s going on during the conversation.
Another thing that makes this unique is that all of the ranking factor definitions, results, advice, links, and even the thresholds for determining high or low for links and file size are editable right from inside your WordPress admin. It’s not just a “white label” report–it’s actually your own advice.
This is a premium plugin that sells for $997; however, what you have to look at is how much time it is going to save you. If you can do a few hours worth of work in minute or two, that has value. If you’re able to do it for multiple clients over a year’s time, the tool will have more than paid for itself. There is also a monthly payment option of $89 per month. You can see all the pricing information here.
Is this tool for everyone? No. However, if you are a small- to mid-sized or even a large agency, having a tool like this could save a few hours for every client project you work on each year. In a consulting world, time is money, and the quicker you can get information, the better off you’re going to be.
