Warning for SEO SearchTerms Tagging 2 Plugin user

Today, i got an email from Purwedi Kurniawan, the creator of SEO SearchTerms Tagging 2 Plugin. I know that this plugin could troubled us, but something that i underline here is, Purwedi were brave enough to send me this email that describe the danger of using his plugins. Only a few people do this kind of responsibility. I honor him!. So, lets reads the email :


Hi Irwanbee,

Regarding the latest update of Google algorithm, known as Panda Update, I feel obliged to convey some important information to you.

As you already know, Google Panda Update aims to remove the pages that are considered low-quality content from google search results.

“Improve it or remove it. With Google’s Panda Update, low-quality content can impact an entire domain, but removing these pages – or moving Them to a different domain – can help your rankings, ” says Google’s Michael Wyszomierski.

And unfortunately, the search pages that are automatically created by SEO SearchTerms Tagging 2 plugin, as well as the WordPress tags pages, are considered as low-quality content.

Therefore, I do not recommend to enable these two SEO SearchTerms Tagging 2 features:

1. “Save popular search terms as post tags”, and
2. “Convert search terms into links to search page”.

All the other features are save, and not contradictory to Google Panda Update.

In addition, to eliminate those pages from Google Index, you can add the following code into your site robots.txt file ( you can find it in the public_html folder ).

User-agent: *
Allow: /
Disallow: /search/
Disallow: /tags/

For now, Google has not perfomed Google Panda Update into all of their local sites, but I guess it’ll be soon.

To make friends with Google Panda, always use high quality unique content, and strengthen the on-page SEO of those content in accordance with the keywords you target. Some people even said that the most important now is your on-page SEO, and not your backlinks (off page). For me, both is important, but I do believe that on-page SEO become more important then before.

You can download and print this on page SEO check list.

To automate the on-page SEO, I used to using SEO Pressor plugin, but not anymore. I found out that this new plugin, called Easy WP SEO, has more complete on-page SEO features compare to SEO Pressor.

Click here to view the videos, or read the comparisons of Easy WP SEO vs SEO Pressor vs Clickbump SEO at this Warrior Forum thread. There are a lot of user reviews from Warrior Forum members there, feel free to read it too.

Good luck and success for you.

Best Regards,

Purwedi Kurniawan

Act A.S.A.P. Disable the plugins, or keep the plugin works with doing some small modifications.

  1. We both use this plugin. LOL!! I got the same email, but since I don’t index my tags or search pages I figure everything is Ok. I don’t need to change anything.

    Thank you very much for sharing, I was also playing with the plugin for better use.
    Do you happen to know how to disable it from certain posts/pages?


  4. Thanks for the info about the plugin, I tried using it and maybe I should remove it from my sites because of the danger it can create on my whole domain. It’s much better to play safe than regret!


  5. Thanks for the info, I will check first my visitors traffic data.

    Count me in bro!
    Actually, the dangerous is not in the plugin it self. But in the user.
    If the user use feature “link to search”, so, “use as your own risk” is implemented. :)
    I still use this plugin. I love the plugin.
    I Just use for different needs for keyword, etc.
    so, use this plugin wisely.
