The Squirrly SEO plugin and the Squirrly SEO – Advanced Pack plugin (which is necessary for accessing various Squirrly features and is included at no additional cost) both create certain database tables for your WordPress site, each serving a specific purpose.
More specifically, the database tables that Squirrly SEO creates are:
- wp_qss: This is the SEO Snippet table; created after installing/activating the Squirrly SEO plugin and activating the Bulk SEO & Snippets feature for your WordPress site.
Database tables created by Squirrly SEO – Advanced Pack:
- wp_qss_redirects: Generated upon installing the Squirrly SEO – Advanced Pack plugin and activating the Redirects feature.
- wp_qss_redirects_log: Generated upon installing the Squirrly SEO – Advanced Pack plugin and activating the Redirects feature. This is a log/monitor table for the redirects.
- wp_qss_jsonld: Created when you install the Squirrly SEO – Advanced Pack plugin and activate the Rich Snippets feature.
IMPORTANT! All these database tables are created only upon activation of the mentioned features.
Option to Delete Tables on Uninstall
In Squirrly SEO > SEO Configuration > Tweaks & Sitemap > Advanced Settings, there’s an option labeled “Delete Squirrly SEO Table on Uninstall“
This option ensures that you have control over the data. If you check this box, all the Squirrly SEO tables will be permanently deleted from the database when you uninstall Squirrly. No trace of information will be left behind. Everything will be deleted from the database.
Only activate this option when you are 100% sure you no longer want to use Squirrly SEO and need to permanently delete all data related to Squirrly SEO from your WordPress site.
