WordPress Plugin

Core SEO optimizations with cookie notice, inline CSS and more. Increase your website's SEO ranking, speed, the number of visitors and ultimately your sales by optimizing your WordPress site for SEO.
Provide some extra but important SEO functions along Yoast SEO. Yoast SEO not required but recommended. You may or may not use an other SEO plugin too.


In our analysis in XOVI, we find some possibilities to improve our sites SEO. Mainly we use Yoast SEO Plugin, but unfortunalty we did not find this options in it. So we decided to create this plugin. Mainly to expand Yoast SEO functionality, but it not required, the plugin can be used alone too.

All functions are optional.

  • Remove JSON links from header,

  • Deactivate attachment pages and redirect to attachment file,

  • Limit revisions,

  • Add noidex on archives, search and 404,

  • Automatically set the WordPress image title, alt-text & description based on file name,

  • Deactivate comments and pingbacks in the whole site,

  • Deactivate feed,

  • Add anything to header (e.g. JSON, Google Analytics or GEO Tags),

  • Add anything to footer (e.g. JavaScript, Google Analytics, etc...),

  • Add inline style to header (it is hard to add css for some themes),

  • Add personalizable cookie notice.

  • Removed: Activate GZip, use .htaccess

  • Removed: Activate Google Analytics (via Tag-Manager), you need a Tag-Manager ID for this first, use header and/or footer editor

The GPL license of Exopite SEO Core grants you the right to use, study, share (copy), modify and (re)distribute the software, as long as these license terms are retained.


If you use my program(s), I would greatly appreciate it if you kindly give me some suggestions/feedback. If you solve some issue or fix some bugs or add a new feature, please share with me or mke a pull request. (But I don't have to agree with you or necessarily follow your advice.)
Before open an issue please read the readme (if any :) ), use google and your brain to try to solve the issue by yourself. After all, Github is for developers.
My updates will be irregular, because if the current stage of the program fulfills all of my needs or I do not encounter any bugs, then I have nothing to do.
I provide no support. I wrote these programs for myself. For fun. For free. In my free time. It does not have to work for everyone. However, that does not mean that I do not want to help.
I've always tested my codes very hard, but it's impossible to test all possible scenarios. Most of the problem could be solved by a simple google search in a matter of minutes. I do the same thing if I download and use a plugin and I run into some errors/bugs.
