I discovered your Wordpress plugin Simple SEO and love it. It’s simple and practical. But one thing is really odd and need to be fixed quickly! Why is the Open Graph URL tag for the post homepage the URL of the first post??? So «og:url» should be «domain/» (cannot put full domain because of forum restrictions), but it is «domain/post1/». ​This doesn’t make sense, It would be fantastic, if you could fix this bug. Thank you so much! 5 stars if fixed
