What makes WPSSO Core better?
Makes sure your content looks great on all social and search sites - no matter how it's crawled, shared, re-shared, posted, or embedded!
WPSSO Core makes sure that all social crawlers, search crawlers, web browser extensions, mail and messaging apps (Facebook Messenger, iMessage, Skype, WhatsApp, etc.), and embedded object / iframe content, always get accurate and complete information about your webpage content, business, and authors.
Uses your existing content for meta tags and Schema markup:
There's no need to manually re-enter descriptions, titles, product information, select images / videos, etc. — WPSSO Core reads your existing content automatically and offers fine-tuning and customization options for just about anything and everything. ;-)
WPSSO Core is language / locale aware, which means you can customize your site information, social page URLs and Knowledge Graph for different languages!
Creates accurate and complete meta tags and Schema markup:
WPSSO Core offers meta tags and Schema markup for Facebook / Open Graph, Google's Knowledge Graph and Rich Card SEO, Pinterest Rich Pins, Twitter Cards, Weibo and more — including complete image markup, video markup, extensive eCommerce product markup, author profile / authorship, co-authors, publisher information, local business markup, aggregate ratings, reviews, recipe information, event details, and much, much more — all from your existing content!
Includes advanced quality assurance features and options:
- Checks for minimum / maximum image dimensions and aspect ratios.
- Shows notices for missing and required images.
- Verifies webpages for duplicate meta tags.
- Validates theme header templates for correct HTML markup.
- Checks and warns of any missing PHP modules.
- Checks 3rd party plugin settings for possible conflicts.
A reliable WordPress plugin for today and tomorrow:
WPSSO Core is extremely fast and 100% compatible with the new Gutenberg block editor in the upcoming release of WordPress v5.0.

★★★★★ — "Yoast on steroids! As an SEO marketer, I love using Yoast for my basic on-page SEO. But Yoast only allows you to enter basic Open Graph social settings. This plugin gives you SO many more options on completing the Open Graph for Facebook, Twitter cards, Pinterest etc. If you use WordPress, I totally recommend using this plugin to help with better rankings in the SERPS!" - gregmontag
