All in one SEO pack being downloaded faster than WordPress SEO by Yoast

At the end of August, all-in-one-seo-pack was 5th in the top 10 downloads measured by Growth per day. Nearly two weeks later it has climbed to the top. google-xml-sitemaps has dropped to 3rd position but wordpress-seo-by-yoast remains at number 2. jetpack‘s dropped to 6th (from 3rd). google-analytics-for-wordpress has leapt to 10th position. What do these figures tell us?

Not much really.

But it’s interesting to note that both of the top two and the new entry were all updated since the previous snapshot was taken.
