    I was wondering what you people think about the suggestion this SEO tool for WP is making! For instant it says "Title contains X characters, we recommend min. 40" and all other suggestions it does, do you have any good experience to strcitly follow these guidelines or do you don't care or..??

    Please let me know what you think.

    I like it - if anything it just saves you having to remember stuff. Keeps you on your toes helping you get the best from your on page optimisation without forgetting anything.

    But you can live without it also..... try it, its free. What have you got to lose?

    It's a prompt but nothing more than that for me. Great for newbies though.
