WorkHorse Review: Is This WordPress SEO Plugin by Alex Becker & Yashar of Source Wave Just Another Hyped Up Tool?

Yashar worked behind the scenes with Alex Becker to help create this software. Although he is only 15 year old, he has tons of SEO knowledge and unique techniques to building links, such as his “Hidden Link Method” which lets you get blog comment links that get approved nearly 100% of the time, because the actual link can’t be seen by the website owner.

He runs his own SEO Facebook Group called Yashar’s SEO Mastermind which attracted 2,000 members, including some pretty well-known names, in just a few months. He is constantly providing value to the SEO community as a whole, testing and sharing advanced SEO techniques that few people even know exist.

How Does It Work?

Basically, this is a local SEO plugin for WordPress that automatically creates local pages for every city and state, using it’s built-in content scraper and spinner. It comes with US/UK cities preloaded right now and they’re considering adding Canada in the future as well. Google highly values the unique content and the location specific information in every page which results in top rankings with little effort.

List of Features

This plugin is not the easiest to install depending on your hosting configuration, but if you can get it to work it will create thousands of pages that rank for long tail keywords. It’s powerful and is packed with features to eliminate manual work and get your site ranked super fast.

Creates Thousands of Unique Pages That RANK Almost Instantly

Alex released a free plugin a while back called SourceFlood, which allowed people to create thousands of pages with unique city and state names. The problem with it was that it didn’t spin the content and only changed the location names.

The software takes this to the next level and actually optimizes the pages for you so you don’t have to manually edit each and every single one. This saves so much time compared to what SourceFlood was able to do. And as you know, time = MONEY.


Town, State, City and Country Page Generation

You can easily create pages for the Town, City, State and Country just by filling out the simple forms inside WorkHorse. What’s even crazier is WH can internally link these pages together in a powerful SILO structure that Google absolutely loves.

So instead of blasting out thousands of city pages, it basically creates and entire site for you (if that’s what you want) and creates all the navigational structures to help it rank quickly.

Local Optimization

One of the biggest pains when creating Local SEO pages is matching the Zip Code with the Town. WorkHorse will automatically put the Zip Code for each Town in every page title and URL which Google can’t get enough of.

This Hyper-Local Optimization gives you an unfair advantage in the SERPS and you’ll find pages ranking in many cities without any backlinks just because they are optimized so well.

Automated Content Generation & Scraping Capabilities

Unlike SourceFlood, WH actually spins the content in every local page you create so it’s unique in Google’s eyes beyond just having a different city name. This is a huge time saver because you won’t have to manually spin content and upload it to your site.

The plugin uses the latest spinning technology so your content is not only unique to Google, but also reads well to humans, which is also a ranking factor now. Believe it or not, unreadable content can get you penalized and WorkHorse solves that beautifully.

Complete Integration

Unlike other plugins and software, WH integrates with multiple platforms, including Shopify. In other words it isn’t just limited to WordPress alone. There aren’t any other apps out there that do this which gives you another advantage. You can rank pages locally for all kinds of products and services, not just Local Businesses.

Think of the possibilities…. you can rank local CPA offers, giveaways, pay per call offers, dentists, plumbers, landscapers, the list is virtually endless.

Full Schema Markup

Unless you’ve been living under a rock (my apologies if that’s actually the case) then you’ve probably heard all the talk and hype about Schema markup and maybe even bought a plugin (ahem… ProjectSupremacy) about it. The reason there is so much hype about Schema markup is because it WORKS!

If you don’t know what Schema is, it’s basically a special code on your site that only Google sees, that tells BigG what your site is about. Schema has crazy effects on local rankings because nobody is doing it. With WorkHorse, Schema is automatically added to all your pages and optimized without touching any code at all.
