One of the benefits of making money on paid plugins is that you can more easily spend money for other people to look at and even better, review your plugins. Today is the first result of what might become a somewhat longer tradition: WordPress SEO is now a Sucuri Safe Plugin.
What this means? It means I’ve asked Sucuri to do a full security review of my WordPress SEO plugin. They found a couple of small issues, which I’ve all addressed in the 1.3 release I put out earlier today.
So while 1.3 might not be a major release in terms of functionality, it is the result of quite a bit of work. If you check this commit, you’ll see a ton of little changes have gone into the plugin. Most of them are really minor, but all combined, they make for a better and, more importantly, safer plugin.
I plan to do more updates to my biggest plugins to fix things like this. It’s great to be able to do that because of a, now thriving, paid plugin business. So thank you, to those of you who bought a premium plugin, you are helping us give you a better product!
