Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Not worth the performance handicap

  • Matthew Hamilton


    The pros:
    Does a lot. Or tries to anway.

    The cons:
    Slows down the site.
    Slows down the backend of the site alot. At times a great deal.

    Overall, having used it for a long time across many sites the speed issues have become insurmountable and I’ve had to look for other options.
