Comment on WordPress Hacks by SEO Dave.
I added the slider (to Stallion 6) because WordPress post sliders were popular at the time, but I personally don’t use them in 2014 for SEO reasons.
Run your site through Google’s Pagespeed Insight Tool http://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/ with and without the slider active and you’ll see the difference.
If you do the research you’ll find users tend not to click on sliders, so though they look nice they tend to be ignored. there’s an interesting discussion at https://yoast.com/opinion-on-sliders/
So cool feature, but has negative SEO impact and users apparently don’t click them. If stallion Responsive was only for my use I wouldn’t have kept the slider feature, but some users like them so made the best SEO version possible.
Compared to other sliders it’s much better SEO wise, most use images and have zero SEO built in, the links tend to have awful anchor text for example.
Though I don’t advise using WordPress sliders, if you do use the Stallion Responsive slider. If you disable the Stallion Responsive slider under the Stallion options pages it has no negative impact on SEO, when a Stallion Responsive feature is disabled via an options page it’s like the feature doesn’t exist (WordPress doesn’t load any of the resources).
