That’s about all that needs to be said for the Scribe SEO WordPress Plugin that we recently installed on 10+ sites.
That’s what you’ll say after you install it and try it out.
That’s what you’ll say after you look at your server logs and see all the new traffic you’re getting from old posts that are now optimized and are actually doing what they should have done way back when blogging and WordPress were still in their infancy.
Here’s What I Had Before Scribe
I have well over 500 posts on this blog alone. Before we installed the current theme, Thesis, I’m sure I had 2, 3 or maybe 4 other themes and none of them made it easy to optimize my Title, Meta Description and the content of the post.
Now that I use Thesis, that part is simple, but what about all those old posts I wrote when I was new, fresh, hungry and more likely to post several times a week?
You know, those posts that are now long-tail search fodder and bring in thousands of viewers a month. Yeah, those posts.
I have, or did have, hundreds of posts that needed a way to quickly and easily do what needs to be done to them to make them more magnetic to the masses and more loved by the search engines.
Scribe has done that for me and I’m a happy little camper because of it.
Here’s What I Have Now Because Of Scribe
I have a lot more of them to do, but when I’m done, I’ll have 400-500 more little search engine magnets out there sending me more eyeballs and more potential friends, more potential guest posters, more potential partners on projects and more people to leave comments, which is free content and search engine juice. What more could you ask of a plugin?
The More Of What You Asked For
Oh yeah, I almost forgot that besides the obvious Title and Meta Description love that Scribe and Thesis have given me, Scribe also tutors me and chastises me for doing a poor job with my Title, my Meta description and my content.
The screencap below will show you what I got after analyzing this post, which I did before it was finished, because I needed the screencap, for obvious reasons:
The last time I scored a 99% on anything was during kindergarten when I colored the horsey.
Since then, I’ve come to accept scores that were, shall we say, a wee bit lower.
An old post that I recently updated using Scribe scored a whopping 22% before I Scribed the heck out of it. 22 freakin’ %.
Updating old posts amounts to small bits of rewriting and we all know rewriting something is much easier and faster than starting from scratch. So going thru the rest of the posts in this site and several others will take some time, but not as much as writing 400-500 posts would have taken.
The payback is more than worth it and thanks to Scribe and Thesis, I’ll never have to do it again and from now on, the posts I write will be much better thanks to the fine folks at Scribe.
Do yourself a favor and head over there and grab a copy before the price increase, but even if they doubled the price, it’s worth every cent and more.
EDIT 3/05/10: Everything below has been altered from the original post.
I now have changed all the above links to affiliate links, meaning if you buy, I’ll end up retired on my boat at the lake a lot sooner, because I’ll get paid.
I originally had non-affiliate links, but literally a couple of dozen people emailed me and said they were buying simply because of this candid review and wished I was getting compensated.
Well, I’m still getting a hundred views a day to this review, so I’m going to allow you to choose whether or not you want to click an affiliate link or not.
If you don’t want me to be compensated, but do want to buy Scribe, just follow this link: Scribe rocks!
No hard feelings. I didn’t write this for compensation, as evidenced to the thousands who read this before I was convinced to change my links.
Again, I stress that the affiliate links is not a big deal. I don’t want something like that to keep you from investing in something that I positively know will make your WordPress powered site even better than it is now.
EDIT 2/26/10 approx 2 PM CST
I’m sitting at #1 in Google for the term – scribe seo plugin – ahead of Scribe’s own site and some very powerful sites.
I’m attributing it to my usage of Scribe, along with lotsa comments, left by you guys. And you guys wouldn’t have been here if not for uber-traffic sender Chris Pearson, creator of Thesis, which help power this blog.
