I used to use this plugin and liked it better than Yoast too, so I built a site depending on features of it that cannot be ported and they stopped the free version and I had the option to buy pro or move to another plugin when stuff started breaking. I considered buying the paid version too, but did not, because it felt like a hostage situation. Pay, or watch the site you created fall to pieces as our plugin gets obsolete.
I don’t want to be in this place once more. If they can ditch free to promote paid, tomorrow if another plugin brings more money, they can ditch paid in favor of that too. What happens to carefully created structure on my site when the plugin becomes obsolete and starts creating problems? There is no changelog or last updated info for their paid. Not that it being published would prevent them from calling any update the last on whim.
No thanks. I would rather maintain the crucial functions I have already used on my own and move the rest of the features to an open source plugin for an open source platform.
