Does not work
By ,

Surprised to see this plugin broken as SEO by Yost works so well and has been very user friendly. This plugin, although updated 4 days ago is just unoperational so don't waste your time and look elswhere unless trhey fix it. My verison was 5.3.2

loading pages & admin takes for ever
By ,

i ran a profile test when i had this activated and this plough made 88% of my site load very slow

it took like 40 se bonds just to login and load any of the admin pages...

not happy at all

This is supposed to work right?
By , for WP 4.1

setup looks smooth and simple enough, but nothing happens, and no debug info either.

installed another plugin that was up and running within 3 minutes. so 1 star on this. (would get 0 if possible, but I guess 1 is for effort.)

Did absolutely nothing

Broke my site
By , for WP 4.1

The javascript is broken, so the admin dashboard doesn't work properly (the tabs does not change views). 2 different websites on 2 different servers this problem occured.

For some strange reason it deactivated jquery even though the file is clearly there.

I do not recommend the current version.

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!

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).
