    There are so many SEO plugins around that work well for WordPress but I am struggling to find any that are fully compatible with BuddyPress.

    Anyone have any recommendations?

    @bphelp thanks for sharing the link.

    I’ve come across that thread before. Unfortunately the solution no longer works. Perhaps it did work at some point in the past but not with today’s version of the plugin and BP 1.7.

    Hi @henrywright-1,

    I think the free version of SeoPress cover 70% of SEO in buddypress :

    Yoast isn’t compatible with parts of BuddyPress @ubernaut – try seeing if page titles for member profiles work for you. I’d be interested to know.

    @megainfo SeoPress is fantastic actually, seems to be the only plugin that tries to be compatible with BP. As for the 70%, that sounds spot on. A few bits could be improved

    1. 404 page support
    2. Friends component support
    3. BP registration page support

    Yoast is fantastic for WP, sadly not so much for BP.

    I’ve never seen any impact on traffic using it. there may be some benefit but i think the time would better be spent developing content, call me old fashioned. :P

    Completely agree! Content is the most important thing.

    For the site i’m building, my SEO efforts are more for the end user’s benefit and less for search engine rank improvements. When a user looks at Google’s search results I’d like them to see a meaningful page title and description. I class the page title and description as “off-page content” which is just as important to the end user as the “on-page” information they are reading.
