  • Do you have the premium version by anychance? I just had an issue with my premium version with the recent update. I just sent in a support request but it’s the freaking holiday. 🙁

    I’m unable to edit any meta information. I’ve got 3 blog posts I wanted to publish but will wait for a resolution.

    IMHO Yoast team should become aware that all 3.X branch is huge dead born mistake.

    If they continue to force 3.X I seriosly thinking about fork 2.3 branch, clear all premiun crap ana reincarnate the good workin plugin for free.


    Here’s the github project to fork 2.3.5: aptly named Yoast Minus Bloat Equals SEO

    The most recent update, Version 3.0.7, did not solve any of the errors that showed up with the the Version 3 update.

    My posts still show the following content analysis statements, which are untrue;

    – The text contains 1 words. This is far too low and should be increased.
    – The focus keyword doesn’t appear in the first paragraph of the copy. Make sure the topic is clear immediately.
    – No outbound links appear in this page, consider adding some as appropriate.
    – No subheading tags (like an H2) appear in the copy.

    When will Yoast SEO work again : (


    After weeks of this mess with Yoast SEO I find I can only edit one character at a time with many seconds between each (in one particular long post at least).

    Today I found out about the plugin WP Rollback. So I installed it and rolled back Yoast SEO to version 2.3.5. Now I can edit my blog normally again and get SEO functionality.

    I suspect that using JAVA in my browser (IE11) while I edit a post, especially a long one with many images, is turning out to be a big issue.

    I was happy for Yoast to check a post each time I updated it on my server where I normally do the editing. I didn’t need for it to be done in “real time” as I edited character by character.

    I’ve got the same problem with Yoast as mcnadden, reports incorrect data. I’ve not changed my site, so I’ve no idea how to resolve this. Anyone else with this problem found a resolution? Cheers.

    I have good news to report.
    I rolled back to version 2.3.5 as stated in my previous post 2 days ago.
    Today I updated Yoast SEO again to version 3.0.7. just to see if it behaved better. I now seem to have a working version. I have joined with using the free account offered by Yoast using a dashboard button in the Yoast section. They are now analysing my site (it takes time).
    When I go to the long post I was having difficulty with before (it’s in draft) I can edit both the post and the snippets OK.
    So far it feels good.
    I have to presume my previous update went awry and rolling back then trying the latest update again installed the new plugin with a clean bill of health.
    I will report back here if there are problems.
