Good but does indeed have bugs
By , for WP 3.9.1

Like other reviewers I could not do without this plugin, however I personally has 2 bugs right now that don't seem to be getting support attention:

#1 Facebook OpenGraph title tags are not valid for some pages

For example my home page throws an error (Object at URL 'http://goringeaccountants.co.uk/' of type 'website' is invalid because a required property 'og:title' of type 'string' was not provided) if you stick it in https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/

#2 The SEO color button in the wordpress sticky banner when browsing the site seems to be stuck pointing to a portfolio page, no matter what page you are on.

Annoyances yes, but could I do without this plugin - no!

Its good but there are bugs
By ,

I work very hard to get all of my posts into the good (green) area. It is really nice to have help. However, and its a pretty big however, many times the plug in simply refuses to recognize a couple of the things I did do, like focus keyword in content. Often it will say zero when in fact it is there a few times.

Pretty Helpful
By ,

We use this app daily. It is very helpful in remembering steps to boost our SEO. I do think there are some things in the app that are a little outdated when it come to recent google updates, for example the keyword indicator, sometimes I feel like Yoast is asking me to keyword stuff my content in order to get the "green light"

Great tool for optimization, but feeling outdated.
By , for WP 3.9.1

This is an excellent tool for speeding up the optimization process. Being able to select the focus keyword, title, and meta description in one spot is very convenient. I feel though, that the rating should be taken with a grain of salt. No automated system is perfect, of course, but the goal should be to take Yoast's suggestions and choose what's best for your content rather than just try to make the button green.

New to SEO and need site ranking quickly
By , for WP 3.9

Really like your plugin. I'm on a steep WordPress, web hosting, SEO learning curve all at once and I have a business to run. My business is taking customers to remote locations on motorcycles, a long way removed from this tech stuff. So I need simple to follow processes based walk through technology if I stand a chance of getting the website my business requires, up and running effectively. I have to say your plugin makes life a lot easier!

Use Joost on WordPresss Many Times
By , for WP 3.8.1

All good and easy to use. Some previous SEO and HTML knowledge helps but Joost has a good guide and has tried to make the settings and tolls as easy as possible to use for non-techies.
