Platinum SEO Pack vs All in One SEO Pack

Category : Resources


WordPress has a vast community of plugin developers and users, which means we’re sometimes provided with more plugins than we know what to with. The case is no different when it comes to WordPress SEO plugins. If you want your WordPress blog to be found by search engines and also perform well, you need a great SEO plugin. This is where All In One SEO Pack and Platinum SEO Pack come into play. Both these plugins are considered to be of a very high standard and provide you with the necessary tools to optimize your search engine results, and where you have two great FREE products, there will be a versus.

Now it’s not my place to say which one is the best, as both provide great options, but I can tell you which one I prefer and why.

1. All In One SEO Pack

All In One SEO Pack was the original Big Daddy in WordPress SEO for me, apart from HeadSpace. Below are the pros and cons of AIOSEO.


  • Provide all of the necessary SEO options for new blogs, from title tags, to meta description and more.
  • Easy to use out of the box.
  • Large user community.
  • The Original.
  • Backward-Compatibility with many other plugins, like Auto Meta, Ultimate Tag Warrior and others.
  • E-Commerce Support.
  • Has pro version.


  • Does not support noindex and nofollow on a per post basis.
  • Does not support automatic 301 redirects on permalink changes.
  • Less SEO control on a per post basis.
  • 2. Platinum SEO Pack

2. Platinum SEO Pack


  • Has all of the necessary SEO options.
  • Easy to use out of the box.
  • Supports 301 Redirect on permalink changes.
  • Supports noindex and nofollow on per post basis.
  • More control on per post basis.
  • Import All In One SEO data.


  • Built off AIOSEO.
  • Seen as AIOSEO rip-off.
  • Smaller community, less downloads.

My verdict : As I said earlier, I don’t believe one is better than the other, because one will only be better than the other based on the requirements of the particular user. That said, I do prefer to use Platinum SEO, simply because it provides two things I need, which is 301 Redirects and more SEO control on a per-post basis.

Maybe worth mentioning: Those two are not the only ones. I recently switched to WordPress SEO by the well known plugin Author Joost de Valk (Yoast) - great functionality, all features I need, and: It’s free!

There also is wpSEO by german plugin author Sergej Müller. In that case you’d probably have to buy the full version to get all features.

And another one I tested was Headspace which also had a bunch of nice features. However it slowed down my blogs so much that I decided to stop using it.

Have you try “YOAST seo”? It has complete features and I think is better then AIO or Platinum.
