whatever you do, don't update this plugin! it will break your site
By , for WP 4.2.3

do not use this plugin. if you have it, do not update it or it will break your site.

i used the free plugin downloaed from wordpress.org.

when i tried to update it recently it broke my site and i can't access the dashboard. postings in the forum and an email to them has gotten no answer except to offer to sell me an upgrade.

as i told them, i can't log in anymore thanks to them so definitely will not be sending any money their way. out of a possible 10, i give them a -50.

Google Analytics
By ,

I have installed this plugin on my website [Link redacted] - Google Analytics is a good option by Yoast, but overall Google Analytic is not Good for SEO. On websites where I have installed Google Analytics perform poor whereas websites where there is no Google Analytics perform good.

Please check Version 5.4.4

It just works!

I used the Jetpack Stats plugin so far and now switched to Yoast Analytics. The only thing I miss is, to have the analytics stats in my WP dashboard. Maybe an idea for future improvements?

Other than that: Works 100% as described. Thanks, guys!

No support. For real.

Well, I like the plugin but apparently they are taking this no support until you pay thing very seriously. Couldn't find a single answer from the developers in the support section here. Best use a plugin from somebody who cares.

Best one

1million installs says it all: this plugin rocks. Yoast really tries hard, that's how he became a wordpress superstar.

Great plugin

Great plugin

Worked at first, then started breaking my site
By , for WP 4.2.2

At first it worked perfectly, but then it started breaking my entire site. I managed to recuperate my site only after uninstalling this plugin.

Works but not as useful as it could be

It seems to work and shows basic stats. However you would be better off installing Google Analytics and just bookmarking the stats page to see all the stats. One useful feature is the ability to disable tracker of specific users. I don't want my stats cluttered with with my usage lol.

If the plugin showed more stats and details in the dashboard for it, I would give it five stars.
