Love the plugin
By , for WP 4.1

It a great plug in , but when you encounter a problem you will not get any support if you have the free version. many of us do not have the 90$ to dish out for a plugin. which i think it a bit pricy for a plugin.

Best plugin I have ever used for WP SEO
By , for WP 4.1

I have been using SEO plugin by Yoast for a couple of years now, and it has been an absolute pleassure. You can make sure all your blogposts and pages are SEO optimised, without having to spend time messing around inside the code. This plugin can be used both by professionals and people who are new to SEO. I have been using the plugin on my personal blog and on school projects (Example: Elite Bilskrot).

Thanks a lot to the developer(s) behind this great plugin.

Best plugin for SEO in wordpress.

Great and simple
By , for WP 4.1

It's really great plugin, probably the best I ever installed on my WP. Good support and high quality stuff.

Sitemap didnt generate correctly
By , for WP 3.9.2

The first thing I did with this plugin was to generate a sitemap. However of the 11 sitemaps generated by this plugin in the sitemap index file, only 5 of the 11 were actually there. The missing 6 caused Google Webmaster Tools ( when sitemap submitted ) to return 'General HTTP error:404 not found' error messages and Google asked me to re-submit the sitemap index file so that it follows their guidelines. I can't comment on the other functionality of the plugin but the first and only function I asked it to perform was a big fail.

Works very well
By , for WP 4.1

I've been using this plugin for over a year. It's easy to use and it works very well. Of course, knowing your SEO basics is necessary to leverage the awesomeness of this plugin.

Has improved page views
By , for WP 4.1


I started using this and the next day I noticed increased traffic and page views. Of course I had to do the hard work myself, but I am doing it and it is helpful and a great resource. I have no doubt that their professional services are worth it, its just kind of fun doing it on your own and learning.

Useful plugin!

Thankful to use this tool that makes SEO and sitemaps so simple to do.

Good until you run into a problem
By , for WP 4.0.1

The plugin is fine and probably works for most users but when you encounter a problem you will not get any support. I have few plugins (two of them are commercial) which seem to interfere with Yoast SEO preventing Google Webmaster Tools from seeing my sitemap and reporting that it doesn't contain any URL's. I can't resolve the issue because Yoast doesn't provide support. It's enough to look at the support forum on wordpress.org to see that the issues go on unresolved. I have no choice but to abandon Yoast SEO.
