Extremely helpful
By , for WP 3.5.1

I am not a techie. I count on plug ins to understand the things that are beyond my expertise. I like WordPress SEO because it is extremely complete, without being so complex that I am tearing my hair. I can use the suggestions there, or learn more if I want to. The Yoast reputation for good service can't be beat. And one of the first things I look at in a plug in is how frequently it is updated. Yoast seems to always be on top of every change in WP and the general web atmostphere.

Brilliant
By , for WP 3.5.1

I now use this plugin on all my wordpress sites. It gets the job done perfectly. The only slight gripe I have is that it does tend to add promotional comments to your code. e.g.

<!-- This site is optimized with the Yoast WordPress SEO plugin v1.4.7 - http://yoast.com/wordpress/seo/ -->

But it is a free plugin so that's fair enough!

Sitemap features failed, no support
By , for WP 3.5.1

While I have no complaints about the SEO features of this plugin, I had problems with the sitemaps feature. It caused images to be indexed, which I did NOT want. I have that directory blocked in robots.txt, and I set the plugin to noindex media files. And yet, the sitemaps generated warnings in Webmaster Tools, somehow directing Google to look for images that had been deleted years ago. And then Google began indexing my current images, which again I did not want.

I asked for support over a week ago, carefully following the instructions to make my post just right, but never got a single response. I see a lot of other users getting similar warnings from Webmaster Tools, and in some cases it was easily solved but none of those solutions worked in my case. This has never happened with other sitemap plugins I used, so I've gone back to using those. There is something fundamentally wrong with the sitemaps functionality of Yoast's plugin, and it might be better to just remove that functionality if he is not going to support it.
