A MUST HAVE FOR ALL SITES
By , for WP 3.9

I have used this plugin for a while now and I heavily depend on it. I went from never being seen by web traffic to seeing LOTS of people go to my website. Yoast and the whole team are definitely doing some GREAT things and every time they change the plugin it just gets better and my hit results keep going up.

Seriously, EVERYONE needs to add this to your site!!!!!

To rate this one-of-a kind, superlative, SEO plugin. I've used several other popular SEO plugins, but none compare to this easy-to-use, totally valuable tool.

Thanks, Yoast!

Best SEO Plugin for WordPress
By , for WP 3.8.3

WordPress SEO by Yoast is the best SEO plugin because it has never failed me in catering my SEO needs for my site. I really like feature where you can edit the meta description for each pages and posts. Also the date snippet, to let the searcher know the published date of the post. In addition, I like the individual customization of the pages in the Advance Tab like the nofollow.

Thank you for the great plugin!

og.image and diacritical characters broken, no support for inflectional language
By , for WP 3.8.2

It is a good plugin. Unfortunately it seems it was written by someone not speaking any inflectional language, nor any other language with diacritical characters. I also noticed og.image is completely broken, this disqualifies this plugin for any SEO things.
I speak several languages, one of my sites is in Polish, which is one of slavic languages, which is highly inflectional. This plugin doesn't support diacritical characters in the keyword - it gets lost, it says my article doesn't contain any appearance of the keyword, but then it says my keyword is in the first paragraph. Also it doesn't know that my article and/or its title and meta contain the keyword, but not it its basic form, but in its flexed form.
Google however is very good in understanding and recognizing inflection languages and its search finds different forms of the word.
Not sure how you could fix it with your plugin, but something as the 'core' of the word would help. Please check https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inflection and the example with the cats. The plugin could know that all words starting with "gat" are the keywords if "gato" is defined as the main keyword.
I also don't understand why it doesn't contain Google Analytics code, while All-in-one SEO does. I know Yoast has a separate plugin for that, but why multiply?

My site imports image from wikipedia. My article imports image:
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/8/8b/Kidney_beans.jpg/512px-Kidney_beans.jpg
and displays it correctly. But what does this plugin do?
It sets og.image to:
Meta Tag <meta property="og:image" content="http://paleosmak.pl//upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/8/8b/Kidney_beans.jpg/512px-Kidney_beans.jpg" />
Completely broken, waste of time. They only want to make money, they are not interested in other users. Avoid.
