Good, Simple but overrated
By , for WP 3.8.1

Does not calculate SEO scores based on Live preview of the web page. So, in effect all the seo scores shown in the backend are incorrect as this is not what search engines would view and rate for the keyword.
Because of this limitation WordPress SEO plugin misses out on all custom page templates, carousel plugins, slider plugins, basically any plugin/shortcode which auto generates content in a page/post is totaly missed by WordPress SEO.
All the content which is stored in Post Meta information but shown in the post/pages front view is also missed.
Example 1: Your theme may add a title and a subtitle to a post. The sub-title is stored in a custom field in h2 tag. Missed in content evaluation.
Example 2: You create a Wonderful slider (Layerslider/Revolution slider etc..) on the homepage, with H2, h3 tags to attract information. Missed in content evaluation.
Example 3: You show contact information from the options panel in the header section of the theme. Missed in content evaluation.

Where WordPress is progressing as a CMS, this is a serious limitation of this plugin. Not all the information is stored in the WP Editor.

5 étoilesUn ajout obligatoire d'un site
By , for WP 3.8.1

Il ya quelques plugins J'installe toujours quand je construis un site WP et c'est le premier à chaque fois. Très simple à utiliser et vous reçoit dans l'habitude d'écrire de bons titres et les descriptions pour chaque page de votre site aussi. Ne sais pas où je serais sans elle.

Continuous maintenance mode after update
By , for WP 3.8.1

In enjoyed the plugin. It did everything I expected. Now I work with version 1.5.2.4. And there is an update available.

If I run the update, my page runs into maintenance mode, and the update stucks. All I can do is remove the file .maintenance in the root of my blog to make my blog work again.

At the moment this plugin is deactivated. As far as I read in the other reviews, there may be certain issues with this plugin. This would be a pity because this plugin was a really good plugin.

At the moment my rating is 1 star although this plugin completely did its job. But if updating makes my blog go into maintenance, the usage of this plugin is not practicable anymore.

No help for free users
By , for WP 3.8.1

Do not expect any help from Yoast unless you pay for their plugin, this is the only plugin I know that do not want to support free plugins even though they created it.

I do not have meta showing up now but Yoast don't seem to care. Very poor customer service.

New updates doesn't work properly
By , for WP 3.6.1

It doesn't work anymore after the update 1.5.2.4. If I have WPTotalCache enabled it doesn't put the meta tags in the header and if I disable WPTotalCache it does it but the pages category-ID give back 404 error. What is going on?!
