    Hi @tperke,

    We are sorry you are experiencing problems with the plugin. Did you make any other changes to your website before the problem started? We ask as the fact alone of installing the plugin shouldn’t have any direct impact on your traffic. Notice that it usually takes search engines a while to reflect the SEO actions you’ve performed on your website in the search results. Additionally, Google uses over 200 different factors to determine a page’s rank, many of which such as site speed, server configuration, caching, authority, etc. are beyond the control of the plugin.

    That being said, we’d recommend you check the following:

    • Make sure that your post/pages are not not set to noindex. Refer to this KB article for more information
    • Submit your sitemap index to Google Search Console and check for crawl errors. This KB guide explains how to do so.
    • Configure Yoast SEO by following the tips provided in this guide and these screencasts.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    No changes were made to the website before installing Yoast seo. Pages and Posts stood and stand on index. The Sitemap has already been sent to google webmastertools.

    My visitor numbers and advertising revenues have been irretrievable and have gone back drastically. And right after installing yoast seo. Within a few days. Now 3 months. So far losses of about 2000, – Euro. I’m pissed!!!
