Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » DIY, if possible

  • If you have no idea how to handle header meta data with custom fields, Yoast or similar plugins, like All-in-One SEO, might be okay. They’re bloatware, though, and with Yoast, the bloat seems to be getting worse by the week. (SEO Framework claims to be different in this regard, but I don’t know personally.) To truly uninstall Yoast from a site, you have to install another plugin, Uninstall Yoast, or clear tables in your database. It’s one of those plugins that sticks around, otherwise.

    On top of all that bloat, Yoast’s devs push the premium service endlessly, all while ignoring free users who, to some degree, helped Yoast SEO (a.k.a., WordPress SEO) get where it is today. Even if I thought the plugin was made well, the way Yoast interacts—or, rather, doesn’t interact—with the community leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

    Hi @iamfantastikate,

    Sorry it’s taken us so long to get back to you. Do you still use our plugin? Do you still feel the same way about us? Recently, we’ve added functionality to disable entire parts of the plugin, to allow you to use only what you need. Notifications and tools can be toggled on and off to your liking.

    We would love to know your thoughts.
