Awesome plugin. Fully recommendable!
By , for WP 4.1

In a matter of just a few clicks I had my tracking working. I am very impressed by the Analytics dahsboard from where I can see the most important metrics without the need to access my Analytics account. Fully recommendable and very easy to use, great plugin!

Brilliant Plugin
By , for WP 4.1

I have to say, this plugin is brilliant.I had no SEO experience at all, when I started my blog, found this by searching the plugins directory and installed it.

I am not at all technically minded, but this set up was easy for me.

It helps you set up all the complicated, or so called complicated SEO with Google, through a series of point and click actions, removing all the hassle.

When you write your posts, it provides a superb guide as to how good your SEO is, through a traffic light system, with green being good SEO.I personally love it, as my blog went from hardly being seen, to now getting a lot of visits.

Highly recommended and it even makes you feel like YOU are an SEO guru!

does not work at all, lost days of tracking. Manually input it in the header and not it works. Thanks a lot....

Totally Adware!
By , for WP 4.0.1

I was using it for long time. Then suddenly, this plugin started to show strange hidden ads on my blog. Very annoying. After deactivating this plugin, everything went back to normal. I am embedding GA code in theme files manually. I was not expecting this childish behavior from a big name like Yoast. Will never ever use this plugin again!

Constant error messages & harrassment
By , for WP 4.1

Constant error messages require too much attention. Overall the plugin is more interested in trying to sell you things than working properly. No thank you.

Forget this one !!
By , for WP 4.1

The free version doesn't give you any useful info. Forget it ! Pro for $ 89 is a rip off. Waste of time. I'll be better off logging to your GA account to see what's in there. They simply charge you for being lazy.
Besides, there is a better Google Analytic plugin in here that gives you ALL the info you need. 1 star is not enough, wish I could give it -10 stars!

Constant authentication, never works
By ,

After numerous attempts to configure this plugin by authenticating with the google UA code, deactivated the plugin. It simply does not work. The free version is clearly there to prompt you to spend $90 for the upgrade that does work.

does not work properly on multisite
By , for WP 4.1

I've uninstalled it because it has caused errors in a multi-site, which then works fine. They add a lot of unnecessary stuff to the plugin and made it useless(for multisite at least).

Look for alternatives

Don't work since weeks

Poor upgrade management
By , for WP 4.1

Every went wrong since Yoast decided to create a dashboard to see the data within the WP admin panel.

After that I have experimented performance issues within the WP admin panel, then white screen of death, and today my server went down (PHP crash). I am paying more than 100 US$/month of hosting at websynthesis. Yoast's plugin is the responsible of all my issues.

How can I keep live a plugin that does not let me work on my WP site?

I have been waiting for weeks now for a fix. It seems that the dev team is not able to find one, or not willing to.

Plugin desintalled.

End of the story.
