Install Squirrly SEO Plugin


Squirrly SEO is designed to help both NON-SEO and SEO people to rank on TOP 10 Google for the right keywords. If you are a NON-SEO person, just install the plugin and let the automation feature do the basic SEO for your entire website.

Squirrly SEO is a freemium SEO plugin model, which means you can install and use it for FREE. If you have small content marketing needs (some keywords that you want to analyze, simple SEO strategy), then it’s the perfect plan for you.

Once you start having more significant content marketing and SEO needs, you can upgrade to the PRO or Business version.

Squirrly SEO is the only WordPress SEO plugin that offers Assisted SEO and all the on-page tools you need to take your site from “Never Found” to Always Found on search engines like Google, Bing, Yandex, etc.

While Assistant Technology like Intelligent Parking Assist helps you park your car safely, Squirrly SEO helps you place your pages safely in top positions. More than that, some of the Assisted SEO features we have on-board actually help you find spots on search engines, where you’ll easily park your pages and nobody will bother you (because the competition will be low, even though these spots could earn you many organic visits).

Simply follow the guidance provided by the NEXT SEO Goals feature and the Focus Pages feature to:

  • identify key issues that are stopping you from reaching the 1st Page of Google;
  • complete personalized, AI-powered Goals to improve your chances of ranking;
  • and consistently rank your pages at the top of Google’s Search Results.
