Works great. Very easy to use, lots of great notes and instructions.

Please stop the click hijacking updates!
By , for WP 4.2

Every time this plugin has an update, I click to go somewhere else in the admin menu and this plugin hijacks my click to take me to it's update screen.

There's nothing important there, it's simply a waste of time for everyone using this plugin.

Otherwise this plugin is great, but please stop hijacking our clicks. Really stupid and shameful practice.

Not as great as it used to be

I've used Yoast's plugin for years because it gives me so many things I want. Beyond titles and meta descriptions, the canonicals and XML sitemaps are things I use a lot. But lately the plugin has just grown so big it's hard to keep it running smoothly on the largest site I manage. Currently looking at other options because it takes up too many resources. I would love it if this plugin could scale back and have modules, similar to WooCommerce, so I could leave out all the things I don't use.

I Knew It!!!

There is no question that my site was hacked because of this plugin. Everything gone, and it amazes me that WordPress still practically forces users to download it, and trust that it is safe.
Creating a website has become such a nightmare with all these plugins and security issues. There has to be a better way...
People DESERVE to know when plugins have been compromised so they can take extra measures immediately.
WTF Yoast.

I'm still wrapping my head around SEO and this plugin makes it easy. Great tool to help me formulate my posts and pages for maximum effect.

El mejor plugin SEO
By ,

Particularmente pienso que es el mejor plugin para SEO ya que permite fácilmente tener controlados diferentes aspectos on page para la publicación de páginas y artículos en nuestros blog de WordPress.
Además de funcionalidades extra que lo hacen un plugin imprescindible.

I like it

XML sitemap feature seriously needs a "pages to exclude" functionality!

Your Updates Hijack Clicks
By , for WP 4.1.2

I've updated your plugin on several of my client's websites recently and in the past. Every time, when the updates are complete and I click on an admin page to go to, your plugin hijacks the click sending me to your update page.

Please stop that. Otherwise it's a good plugin, but that really needs to stop.

Every week now there seems to be a security risk with this thing. Deleted.
