    It’s only the default blacklist you can customize if you like

    Let’s see, take your pick:

    – their code was stolen from Yoast SEO plugin
    – they pay dozens of shills to write fake 5-star reviews on WordPress.org and gaslight users on Reddit and Facebook groups
    – MyThemeShop locks customers out of their own WordPress theme settings panel if they don’t pay
    – they sent death threads to LittleBizzy

    probably some other good reasons too

    It’s ridiculous that people use SEO plugins at all, they are unnecessary for 90% of WordPress sites!!

    Rank Math is an abomination and a great example of how corrupt WordPress.org has become that it’s still listed, zero concerns with user safety.

    the Indian Mafia SEO plugin 🚫

    both Yoast and Rank Math are bloated, spammy, and dishonest.

    Use SEOPress, Slim SEO, or SEO Framework if you want a good quality SEO plugin released by good honest guys.

    Rank Math deserves to be blacklisted but so does Yoast imho

    Rank Math is a bloated POS that pays off dozens of bloggers and shills to gaslight people into thinking it’s useful.

    The fact that only 5% of the WordPress community is willing to call out these scammers with their fake reviews and junk software is pretty enlightening. You can safely ignore any future advice from a “marketing guru” after they endorsed junk like Rank Math!

    The entire point of their big spam campaign was to get “Yoast vs Rank Math” phrase to be trending on Google. Well it worked, sadly.

    Quoting from @Jean Reddit post

    No, avoid Mythemeshop’s stuff. These two posts correlate with my own findings when researching this plugin (I’m a SEO professional), so I’ll post them instead of spending the next 30 minutes trying to write something up.

    Many of the features they promise shouldn’t be in a plugin, and if they do manage to offer them (many features still don’t work) it will be a huge load on your server and site. Also many of the feature they offer are not easy data to get, so they’re either making them up based on easy to get Google data (which is heavily filtered), harvesting them illegally from one of the big data providers (which means they’ll continually have to play the IP blocking game), or actually paying to access the API’s from one of the big providers. This data won’t be cheap on this kind of level, so they need to fund it somehow, which means they’re likely data harvesting from sites and YOU are the product here, not the plugin.

    I tend to give Yoast a really hard time, but their plugins and business practices look saintly compared to MyThemeShop.

    some of my clients love Rank Math (and Yoast). they just can’t imagine not having all the little colorful messages everywhere. its a good business, selling this stuff to website owners who are pre-conditioned to pay money for SEO plugins already.

    Everything LittleBizzy says comes true, they are just years ahead of everyone else, or maybe just some of the only honest ones in the WordPress “community”
