We are excited to announce that version 3.4 of All in One SEO has been released today!
This major release adds new features and includes many improvements and bug fixes. In total there’s over 60 improvements to All in One SEO.
Here are the biggest changes you’ll find:
Image SEO module
This new feature for Pro customers with the Business License or above, enables you to globally control the the Title attribute and Alt text for images in your content. Image Alt text and Title attributes are essential for both accessibility and SEO. We know from user feedback how time consuming it can be to set these attributes when you have hundreds or thousands of images on your site. This new feature module simplifies this time consuming task.
Schema markup is essential for every website and in this release we’ve added breadcrumbs markup. Breadcrumbs markup tells search engines about the structure of your website and where your content fits into your site. This is then reflected in the search results snippet so that visitors can see at a glance where on your site they’ll be taken. This improves click through rates on search results. You don’t need to do anything to activate this, it’s output by default for you.
You can find more information in our Guide to Schema.org markup here.
XML Sitemap Priority and Frequency Control
Another major new feature for our Pro customers is granular control of your sitemap priority and frequency.
The XML Sitemap feature in All in One SEO has always let you control the Priority and Frequency for your content by post type and taxonomy but with 3.4, Pro customers now have granular control for each item of content on their site. You can set the Priority and Frequency on the Edit screens for Posts, Pages, Media, Custom Post Types, Categories, Tags and Custom Taxonomies. This gives you the most control of any SEO plugin available today!
Control Your Link Attributes
Finally you can control your hyperlink SEO attributes again! A while back, WordPress dropped the ability to set the Link Title when you create links in your content. Additionally, there was no way to set the nofollow attribute on individual links. Search engines and SEO’s have been vocal about the need to control this on a per link basis. We’re happy to say that with All in One SEO, you can now control the Link Title, Nofollow and Sponsored attributes for each link you create in your content.
