Awesome Motive Acquires All in One SEO Plugin for WordPress

Syed BalkhionFebruary 6, 2020

All in One SEO is now part of the Awesome Motive Family

With over 2 million active installs, All in One SEO Pack is one of the most popular WordPress SEO plugins in the world.

Today, I’m extremely excited to share that All in One SEO plugin is joining the Awesome Motive family.

Michael Torbert (founder of AIOSEO) has done a phenomenal job in building an amazing community over the last decade. Started in 2007, All in One SEO is the original WordPress SEO plugin. I have known Michael for years and have a lot of respect for all that he has accomplished.

As he wanted to pursue the next chapter of his life, we started discussing the future of All in One SEO plugin.

Given our experience running a suite of popular WordPress plugins, All in One SEO was a perfect fit for our family of products.

What does this acquisition mean for existing users?

Aside from new ownership change, it’s business as usual. You can continue to use the plugin that you love without any interruptions.

With exception of Michael, the entire All in One SEO team joined Awesome Motive. This means that you are still being supported by the same talented people.

On top of that, we have added more team members from Awesome Motive that will be working on the All in One SEO project (including myself).

In a near future release, you will see a small plugin design refresh in the WordPress admin area.

With our experience and a dedicated team, we will be adding several new features and improvements to All in One SEO WordPress plugin in the near future.

What’s Coming Next?

Our work is just starting.

I have been in the SEO industry since 2006 and have learnt a lot over the years. My websites get over 60 million visitors a year, and we have built a lot of internal SEO tools that I’m really looking forward to sharing with the WordPress community.

I’m also friends with some of the leading SEO experts like Neil Patel, Eric Siu, Harsh Agrawal, and others.

We will be bringing the best of their knowledge along with several of their internal tools into the All in One SEO plugin, so you can literally have the BEST SEO tool in the industry.

It’s truly going to be a game changer!

Our goal is to build a SEO plugin that’s reliable and results focused.

A WordPress SEO plugin that a beginner, non-techy, small business owner can easily setup in 10 minutes and actually get actionable insights on how to improve their rankings.

We have a lot to cover, but we’re up for the challenge. I sat down with the team, and we have a crystal-clear 12 month plan. A lot of exciting things are coming your way in the coming months.

I want to thank Michael for all the hard work he put into AIOSEO, and I wish him all the best in his future endeavors.

I also want to thank all users who have supported All in One SEO plugin so far, and I hope to earn your support for years to come.
