Great Plugin

Yoast is best!!!

Look for alternatives.
By , for WP 4.1

Something has gone wrong in the quality control department at Yoast. Previous version of this plugin took out everyones admin for several days with no apology or explanation. Current version requires you to constantly re-authenticate.

reauthentication issues...

I love me some analytics, but it seems recent updates have gone horribly wrong with the wordpress plugin because it keeps asking to authenticate.

Google Authentication Issues
By , for WP 4.1

I keep getting the prompt to "Re-Authenticate with your Google account". When I try to do that, it says I have nothing to save after grabbing the string of characters and entering into the appropriate location. Very frustrating!

Keeps on saying reauthenticate.

5.2.7 - Had to uninstall it
By , for WP 4.1

The 5.2.7 keeps on reporting an error:
"Failed to fetch the new data from Google Analytics. Please reauthenticate on the settings page".
If you reauthenticate, nothing happens, and like in a loop the same massage is shown again.
I think it is necessary to subscribe to an app...
I had to unistall it and change plugin.

Unescaped quotes in javascript links
By , for WP 4.0.1

This plugin prevented our maps from loading, as it created a total mess of of the infobox links. Our links are created and added to the map array by javascript, this plugin does not appear capable of handling that.

Connection constantly breaks / no dashboard
By , for WP 4.0.1

I thought I'd give it a try because I like the SEO plugin. I've been using for about 3 weeks now and it constantly looses it's connection to my analytics account. It will warn me but sometimes a week will pass I won't realize it. There goes a weeks worth of data. Also, there is no dashboard.

Last version is a disaster
By , for WP 4.0.1

Used to work well enough.
The last version breaks the connection to Google Analytics and does not let you reconnect.
Yoast's technical support does NOT take one's bug report except if a paid client.
Will find another more reliable solution for the 50+ websites I installed with the plugin.
