Hundreds of our sites on Multisite are being spammed with Yoast alert "We've updated our SEO score algorithm. Click here to recalculate the SEO scores for all posts and pages." .... closing it does not disable it. It comes up on ever page of our dashboard on our sites and our client sites. Yoast Support hasn't offered a fix, just a bunch of random suggestions and we've reverted to twenty fourteen and disabled all plugins ruling out conflicts .... The plugin has become invasive on our dashboards .... not awesome.
This plugin was a reference ... Now it is the example of what not to do ...
This is not acceptable and goes against the principles of the GPL ...
Free good quality product ...
Services with a paid advanced version ... It was a good model ... It's over :(
since 3.x was born it's nothing but problems. Meta description editing still missing, regardless of whether it says to hide or allow. Its hidden and only hidden.
Finally had time to do some thorough testing on staging site before updating to the 3.0.7 from 2.5
Some sites had problems with the 3.0.x updates and some didn't. But as of today all my sites are finally all running the latest version without any problems or delays.
Yoast's SEO is still the best option available (trust me I looked). The only reason it doesn't get the full 5 stars is because I know that each update has the potential to cause significant issues. (although in fairness updates 3.0.4 through to 3.0.7 have been painless).
Hopefully this is a sign of things to come.
If you're reading the reviews and can't decide which SEO plugin to use - you can't beat Yoast's plugin for versatility. Any potential pitfalls are more than worth it in the end.
A lot of people are furious about this new catastrophic version 3.x.x
Version 2.3.5 was working just so fine (excepting all that annoying messages).
What do you do? Are you crazy?
MONEY MONEY AND JUST MONEY. What about, as you say on you website, "… an Open Source fanatic…". Really?
But Mr Joost de Valk who is "… an Open Source fanatic…", is now only concerned by commercial purpose!!!!
Moving all websites to "The SEO Framework" migrating with "SEO Data Transporter" plugin, the perfect alternative.
There is also a new fork of Yoast SEO v2.3.5 (in progress): ymbeseo
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.
i totaly agree the latest posts. This plugin is not working anymore :-(
It WAS a good SEO plugin. Not anymore! Trying to switch to something else. Using Squirrly now. Wouldnt have too if Yoast didnt mess things up!
New version is a disaster
What happened to the meta description field?
