    Hi guys,

    Not sure if any of you are familiar with SEO Booster Pro? One of the features of this plugin is that it detects what keywords were used in a search engine in order to get to your article, and then it appends that search term to the tags of that article - so in future the search engine should rank you higher because that tag is in the body of the page and so if another user types in that search term, google will/should list the article nearer the top.

    My question is that some of my articles are very popular and get a lot of hits, and SEO Booster Pro is going crazy, and has appended hundreds of tags. Take a look at this article for example: http://www.itechcity.org/let-the-psn-banning-begin.html (scroll underneath the article body and you will see the tags).

    Is there a way to limit the tags in SEO Booster Pro? Or is there a plugin I can use to better manipulate the tags but have more control over it, such as putting a restriction or time period restriction on the tags perhaps?

    Any answers would be great, thanks.

    I dont know about that particular plugin, but s30pr3ss0r does the same thing and gives you the option of how many tags, times and places to put the keyword. Its a good tool of used in moderation. I strongly suggest you get that thing under control before you lose ranking for overoptimizing your site.

    Another plugin you could possibly use is Strictly Auto-tags. Although I am having trouble getting it to create tags automatically I know it is pretty widely used so it might be worth a try.

    May I ask - do you write you blog posts yourself, do you outsource or is it an autoblog? No reason in particular, it just looks like a nice blog!

    What you need to do is change a setting in SBP to focus on keywords that bring you only 2 ore more visits and have it auto tagged. If you feel 2 still generates many tags than increase it.

    If you purchased the plugin from the developer, this is something you can find at their support section.

    As another suggested, get it under control ASAP because the auto-tagging is going to go bye bye soon as google figures out a way to calculate the abuse. I am having a hard time just keeping my auto tagging plugin from adding false-positives to my posts. To me this is the greatest damage than over-optimizing the post.

    Thanks guys for your suggestions. It seems KingCrab has hit the nail on the head. I never quite understood what some of the settings mean, but I found the setting that I can adjust as you suggested above, and this is doing the trick. I have set it to "3".

    Only thing it hasnt done automatically is remove the existing tags (under "3") I have to do this myself, but it will only make tags for keywords that have been searched for 3 times or more now.

    Great, thanks again.

    I made the site myself, and a couple of friends of mine write the majority of the blogs and do the videos. I concentrate on SEO and admin, and write the occasion blog post too.

    Set it up to focus only to keywords that bring you less hits, the goal of this plugin is making blog ranking better for the keyword you rank worst, not to outrank for the keywords you already outrank

    then don't generate tags automatically, you better never generate tags with SBP, instead analyze serps and then optimize your old posts to rank better

    Share it? Are you asking me to share SEO Booster Pro Plugin? Am I allowed to post the link to the nulled version?

    I'm using 1.9.2.5 which has a database clean up but im not sure exactly what that does. What version do you have?

    I've found the settings to change the SEO Booster Pro plugin so that it now only adds the tags when there are more than 3 queries resulting in the page, however it doesnt seem to be working, my blog articles (especially the popular ones) fill the page 70% with tags - ewww. I need to sort this. Please help!?

    It is best to use SBP with a brand new blog or articles. Older ones which are already tagged will have additional tags added. So now you have to do some manual work i suppose...

    SEO Booster Pro is up to 1.9.3 now. I had the overtagging issue with the update and haven't heard anything back from Lars at CleverPlugins on a fix. They've not included the manual any longer for new people who've bought it, but when it works, it works great. The setting of 3 or higher helps with the tagging on steroid effect.

    IN the setting just untick auto tag feature, or specify a high min. number of visitors before the tag is used.

    It is all there in the settings

    Yeah the service lately is not so good and support is very poor. I believe it has something to do with the guy's partner whom passed away and then seemed the entire website got wiped out as well.

    I am also using the pro version but not sure if this is really helping much. Id did get me in deep shit with Google because it was adding adult related tags to my site which then resulted in Google flagging 2 of my adsense sites for having adult content. I have now added a list of adult related words which should be ignored -- it helps a little. ( if you would like the list of adult related keywords, let me know i will post it here.

    Hey please share your bad words list and how did you put it inside?
    Do you use wild cards asterix or how to filter those damn tags.
