I've used this plugin on multiple sites for several years and have always found it to be comprehensive yet easy to use. It's an incredible value at $0.00. They really don't have to offer anything for free, but they do. And not only that, they actively maintain the free version to my benefit and the benefit of more than 1,000,000 others.
Thank you, Yoast.
PS. If you're seeing 1 star reviews about issues with the initial 3.0 release, consider that Yoast released several updates in quick succession. It's very troubling to see impatient and ungrateful reviews like "it worked fine for years until this one update, so I give the whole thing 1 star". Yoast is committed to their product. If something goes wrong, they fix it.
Along with the reading I've been doing about SEO, this plugin makes tons of sense and looking at my source code I can see what it is doing. The cues are really helpful. Latest update was a little weird with the new interface but I'm getting used to it. Thank you!
Ouch, what a disaster with 3.x release. And no, emptying the browser cache doesn't do nada. This is a very broken release.
Downgrading to 2.x:
and all is dandy.
keeping the ranking high, but will have to wait a few months before i will try 3.x again.
Last version working properly!
I've been using it for 3-4 years for numerous websites. Still one of the best SEO plugins out there. Although I don't like one thing - that annoying popup with "Getting started", each time when you update the plugin. Grrr.
Still remains one of my favourite plugins on the repo. Keep up the great work guys!
I had used lots of SEO plugins, But none of them works great for me. After using Yoast SEO, Its works like a charm. I can now rank my posts without any problem. Great plugin with great features.
One of the best SEO Plugin for WordPress. When i was a beginner i stared with some Other plugins but was not satisfied. Then someone suggested me to use SEO by Yoast for my site and after using the Plugin i have never regreted it for using. Now I run Two sites of Mine named [Link redacted] and [Link redacted] and even use This plugins for my Clients sites and suggest them to use it.
almost finished building my site over the last few days and used seo and enjoyed it, then this change and bang, my hole site gets messed up. it kept saying to updated and then it disappeared altogether from my site and dashboard, gone
Any one else had this, going to use google xml as it gets good feedback
I have afraid to update the plugin, so bad is it going?
