Overall Satisfaction with Squirrly SEO

I bought the 3 site pack for £100 for the year, followed the guidelines to build focus pages of +1800 words, that's when the plugin failed miserably. Despite actually writing 2000 word, the plugin only saw 328 words so I couldn't get past that stage of the plugin. Support told me to deactivate plugins, but this is an active eCommerce site, getting sales is one thing, SEO is tough enough, and I don't need to have to fight the plugin as well.

The Keyword search tool is a good feature, but you have a limitation of how many times you can use it, (50 was my limit) before you had to stump up some more cash, and the emails... oh the amount of rubbish these guys throw at you, someone needs to install a filter in there, cos they seem to think that now you have spent some cash, they have every right to market to you on a daily basis.


  • The Keyword research tool is okay.
  • The features list is impressive.
  • The after sales marketing materials are overwhelming.
  • Separate the marketing emails from the knowledge based emails.
  • Fix it so the plugin just works... like Yoast does.
  • Get live chat.
  • No effect whatsoever.
  • Really frustrated by this plugin.
  • It has been very effective at sucking my time for no result.
I have used Yoast Pro and also the free version, both of which outperform Squirrly with the one exception of Yoast not having a keyword research tool.

No

Did implementation of Squirrly SEO go as expected?

No

Would you buy Squirrly SEO again?

No

Personally I found the plugin didn't work on my Woocommerce shop. Initially I had Yoast Pro installed, Squiirly recognised I had another SEO plugin installed, but misidentified this so couldn't import any settings. After writing a long post Squirrly recognised less than 20% of the words. This plugin should still be in beta, too buggy, in my book a waste of £100, I'm back to Yoast.
