This document outlines the process of integrating WordPress with Adaptify SEO. The integration allows for efficient management and publication of blog content for WordPress sites using Adaptify SEO.

Some agencies prefer to have a plugin on their customer’s sites not mentioning Adaptify. A white labeled plugin is available on request, simply email us and we will send you a custom branded WordPress plugin.
