Friendly interface and with many features.

Too bulky for me

I would rather use a light weight SEO plugin.

Great, detailed up-to-trends SEO, but the Bounce Rates
By ,

I love this plugin because it really guides you into a more reliable SEO, but I found it as the main reason for an increase in Bounce Rates for websites.

Upon installing the plugin, one week of letting it roll into the website the Bounce rates increased from an average of 48% (already bad) to a whopping 67% rise (worse). I removed the plugin in place of a lightweight, simple SEO, and immediately the Bounces went down by 7% first day, the next day another 6% drop. Hopefully the drop rate continues until it's... better than the usual average. PROBABLY it's caused by another plugin which was only triggered by YSEO, but the fact that it rose WHEN I installed it is enough reason to stop using it. For now.

This is a good plugin based on how it virtually teaches you not to make SEO mistakes on the pages you make, but if there's nothing done about that Bounce rate issue I might not be using this anytime soon again. (Unless, it's actually nonsense to be concerned about Bounce rates? and the hype by SEO "experts" about the Bounce rate Taboo is just a whack? Sometimes I feel that way, too)

Like The Plug-in So Far

It seems to be very light-weight, easy to use, but know how effective it is in getting my site ranked. SEO is an art, not a science, and this plug-in appears to fill in the gap for me. I still have to do more work, and reading up on the plug-in. But for the most part, it works GREAT!

Nice Plugin WordPress SEO by Yoast

Its a great plugin. Does the job well. My only problem is the tour won't close for some reason.

Very well done!

One of my websites for [Link redacted] is ranked decently with just the minor tweaks from this plugin. I'm sure if I used it even more my site would do even better!

I like how it looks. I know you can't judge a plugin by UX design, but I feel this one has the better user experience than most others. It is also very detailed and easy to understand. That is one of the most frustrating things when you download a wordpress plugin and it is hard to understand right off the back. This one is easy right out of the box and I can appreciate that!

It's the best seo plugin. I've managed to lift up my parfumuri originale website in a short period.
