How does Squirrly WordPress SEO Plugin work?

Neil Patel, the Co-Founder of Kissmetrics and Crazy Egg made a great video on how to use Squirrly’s Live Assistant:

How does the META Description work in Squirrly SEO Optimization?

Based on your article, Squirrly will find the most relevant text and add it in the META Description.

You can opt-in to use the Squirrly Snippet in the Post/Page editor, which will allow you to customize how the META Title and Description will be. All while writing or editing your article.

Great Until Spammed With Ads

This plugin would be such a great plugin. It is very simple and easy to use. However, after just 2 days of working with it I was being spammed with ads to buy the pro version without having a choice to close the ads. I understand the need to advertise to get users to buy the pro version, but with that many ads…that just annoyed the you-know-what out of me and I had to uninstall it. Might not bother some people, but I just don’t have the patience or tolerance for that.

Don’t hit post without it

By using squirrely you cannot help with you write a better article. Once you get used to it and use it regularly you will learn what it takes to please the search engines and you’ll start creating an article properly the first time

It’s alright

Could be a bit clearer. I’m only giving it 5 stars to get a free trial of pro.
