Improve your WordPress SEO: Write better content and have a fully optimized WordPress site using Yoast's WordPress SEO plugin.
I now use this plugin on all my wordpress sites. It gets the job done perfectly. The only slight gripe I have is that it does tend to add promotional comments to your code. e.g.
<!-- This site is optimized with the Yoast WordPress SEO plugin v1.4.7 - http://yoast.com/wordpress/seo/ -->
But it is a free plugin so that's fair enough!
This is a must have plugin for your wordpress self hosted blog it worked wonders for our TecH Blog. Good job Yoast
This is the most advanced SEO plugin for WordPress today. Definitely, I recommend it!
While I have no complaints about the SEO features of this plugin, I had problems with the sitemaps feature. It caused images to be indexed, which I did NOT want. I have that directory blocked in robots.txt, and I set the plugin to noindex media files. And yet, the sitemaps generated warnings in Webmaster Tools, somehow directing Google to look for images that had been deleted years ago. And then Google began indexing my current images, which again I did not want.
I asked for support over a week ago, carefully following the instructions to make my post just right, but never got a single response. I see a lot of other users getting similar warnings from Webmaster Tools, and in some cases it was easily solved but none of those solutions worked in my case. This has never happened with other sitemap plugins I used, so I've gone back to using those. There is something fundamentally wrong with the sitemaps functionality of Yoast's plugin, and it might be better to just remove that functionality if he is not going to support it.
so many featured
This plugin has sections that no not work as intended. After months of trying to find a solution with many individuals with the same problem I have elected to discontinue use. From forum posts to emailing the developer there has been no replies or solutions.
I initially had this plugin rated 5 stars. After 5 years working on WordPress and understanding it's full nature. I've downgraded the rating. The why will come later.
What I will say is that 5 years ago this was a 5 star plugin for the sites I owned and it is still a great plugin especially for those new to WordPress.
It's just not my 5 start SEO plugin anymore.
I've been using Yoast a long time. It really works for me.
This plugin does a great job of covering SEO for WordPress. The best thing is there are are dozens of settings that allow you to customize your SEO in WordPress, and then you can export the settings to use on another site.
Greatest SEO Plugin that I used.
Best respect Yoast team!
