WPSSO uses your existing content to generate meta tags and Schema markup — there's no need to manually enter / configure any additional settings or values, but if you want to, you can customize just about anything and everything. ;-)

WPSSO creates complete and accurate social meta tags and Schema markup — including titles, descriptions, hashtags, images, videos, ecommerce product details, author profile / authorship, co-authors, publisher information, ratings, event details, recipe information, and much more — all from your existing content.

WPSSO provides all the information social websites and search engines need — improving social engagement, Google Search ranking, and click-through-rates on Facebook, Google Search / Google+, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and many more.

WPSSO includes special support and optimization features for Pinterest — providing customized Pinterest image sizes, and avoiding conflicts between incompatible Pinterest and Facebook Open Graph meta tags.

WPSSO offers a fast and reliable framework for developers and advanced users — offering dozens of 3rd party integration modules in the Pro version, several Free and Pro extensions, and hundreds of filter hooks to easily customize WPSSO's behavior and output.
