Overall Satisfaction with SeoSamba for Wordpress Enterprise

We have two separate strategic business units to my company, each serves a very different audience.
Each marketing department uses an inbound marketing model which means we do a lot of content marketing. We prioritize all of our resources in creating great content and building great products that meet a compelling need for each audience.

Wordpress is great technology for us, but when they make a change, and they never 'call and tell us,' we were having to shift our manual SEO process very quickly. It became far too time consuming. There are a lot of WP plugins out there, but so many of them break when WP makes a core change. Then it's back to manually re-optimizing. SeoSamba for Wordpress Enterprise took that problem away by automating SEO for us.

  • Automates multisite SEO, so we can stay focused on great content that attracts the right audience for our two entirely different strategic business units.
  • Eliminates the surprises we used to get with other plugins when Wordpress makes unannounced changes that crash other plugins.
  • Agile, easy to use, and saves hours of time and creative resources
  • Automates metric capture: site analytics, keyword/phrase capture, search engine page results etc...in an online dashboard (and it's free).
  • There's a lot more capacity to this product than we need right now, but it's also free so we'll grow into it. You do have to pay close attention to the metrics and adapt accordingly, which is the reason behind creating an inbound marketing model anyway. Just choose the metrics that matter most to you, and I do encourage you to do a lot more A/B testing than you might have with another plug-in.
  • Extremely positive ROI as it saved us a lot of very expensive creative time and other associated resources.
  • Positive impact was immediate as we were immediately aware of where our sites could be much better optimized and we are able to A/B test very quickly, and take immediate action on those results.
  • Remember, the #1 objective to metrics is to understand the behaviors they represent. Simply capturing reporting isn't good enough. Test, measure, analyze....rinse and repeat.
Prior to SeoSamba we were making manual changes. Then we started researching several possible other plugins but the reviews all said the same - that if WP made significant enough changes those plugins would become ineffective. SeoSamba's ability to automate optimization and keep up with/stay ahead of those changes was the deciding factor for us.
The more pages you have, the better, if you choose SeoSamba. For us, it exceeds our needs as we're not fans of excess numbers of pages just to have a lot of pages. We find that distracting as the people "living" on a website either aren't finding anything compelling or are there to learn something, not to take any real action.

The best scenario to use SeoSamba in is when you want to prioritize your creative team's time to create, and not to simply do a lot of maintenance of your site(s).
