Enjoy the plugin
By , for WP 4.3.1

Been using it on my website for a while, works great.

OpenGraph NOT fixed
By , for WP 4.3.1

In the features it is stated that bugs etc referring to OpenGraph have been fixed.
On the contrary, I find that it is now that i get thousands of crawling errors in Search Console. Not sure if the bug is in WP SEO or in Google Analytics by Yoast, but it seems the experts agree this bug comes from one of these two plugins. Please do fix it

Love your old plugin, issues with new one
By , for WP 4.3.1

Like the others, I installed the 3.0.6 but each time I tried to add my focus keyword I got an "unresponsive script" notice. It only happened when I was in the working inside the updated plugin. I tried fixes within Firefox but nothing worked.

I read others responses and went back to the 2.3.5 version and all is well again.

I appreciate all you do for the free plugin, but thought you'd like to know what's happening from my site.

Still good, and getting better
By , for WP 4.3.1

I use this plugin on most of my websites. The single stars given on this plugin is just not correct. The tool is free, and works excellent. Lots of documentation and best practices are explained on their homepage. The recent updates were to roll out a newer and better version, and sometimes you only find out that some things are not compatible with other plugins after you rolled out a new version (I did not have ANY problem by the way on my 20 or so websites...). There have been update fixes published very quickly, these guys work really fast and correct once a fault is identified.
Feel free to look for an alternative, I stick with the best I know.

An excellent plugin throughout the years
By , for WP 4.3.1

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.


Thank you, thank you. thank you

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!

downgraded to 2.x
By ,

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!

Last version working properly!

A Great plugin!
By , for WP 4.3.1

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!
