The Basic plan of the Magento 2 SEO Extension definitely gives you leverage. You can configure automatic redirects, manage canonical and do better SEO for your store. However, it might not be enough to make it to the top of Google positions.
That's why, at the right time, you might want to upgrade your SEO plan to Plus or Extra. The same steps work if you want to upgrade from Plus to Extra.
So, today you'll learn how to upgrade your SEO extension plan.

Upgrade using composer
First of all, you need to remove the extension you currently use:
composer remove magefan/module-seo*
Then you can proceed with the installation of an upgraded version. To do that, go to My Account > My Downloads and press the Install via Composer button to get the installation instructions.
Upgrade using archive
If the SEO module was installed via archive, you need to upgrade it the same way. Just go to your Magefan account, download the extension archive and extract it.
We recommend creating a backup of the extension folder on your server before moving further.
Then copy the app folder from the archive to your Magento 2 directory. The new extension files will merge with the existing ones.
Once you copy the files to your Magento root directory, run the following commands:
php bin/magento setup:upgrade
php bin/magento setup:di:compile
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
Once you upgrade your plan, you will have quite a few new features to configure. So, jump to the SEO user guide to learn more about each of them.
