4 out of 5 stars
detailed - but documentation a bit 'techie'
By , for WP 4.4.2

The Yoast SEO Plugin makes life very easy for the inexperienced user - and seems to provide some opportunities for the more Advanced user. We believe we are getting good outcomes from using it - but would like to understand some of the features a little better.
The Plugin is probably worth 5 stars, but I've rated on my experience (or lack thereof)!

Heavy weight, many ads and notices
By , for WP 4.4.2

It surely does what it stands for, but you feel it when it's active !
Lots of options anyway, but if you need good SEO and less clutter, pass your way.

3.0.7 not working well
By , for WP 4.4.2

I have been a loving user of YOAST for a couple of years, and I have never had any big issues.

I love the idea of real time updates for SEO, and that is a nifty little feature.

The lastest update will not recognise my blog or page text. It keeps telling me my word count is 0 or 1, even though pages and posts have much greater word count.

I have tried installing the never BETA version, and that is only giving me a blue loading line where the report should appear.

I hope a new update will resolve the issues. As for now, this is actually hurting my business.

Best ever, for so many reasons.

The definitive SEO plugin. Yoast keeps it up to date implementing any new feature Google suggests.

Yoast SEO Used to Be Great. 3.07 is Not.
By , for WP 4.4.2

The latest 3.0x version of Yoast SEO is terrible. I hope they get this sorted out. In the Yoast SEO editor for the designated site homepage, it adds /example-post to the end of the URL, and there is no way to edit this.

There are many people having this issue, and I've had it across all sites running this version, with many different configurations.

I now have to roll back every site. Luckily I have a copy of older versions of this plugin.


Welleke andere...?

Ben nog geen betere plugin tegengekomen.

I'm confused by the latest version -- Where's the Keyword Usage data?
By , for WP 4.4.2

Where is all the information for the "keyword usage?"

For example, this information used to displayed in previous versions (before the big update). What the heck happened to this?
Focus keyword usage
Your focus keyword was found in:

Article Heading: Yes (1)
Page title: Yes (1)
Page URL: Yes (1)
Content: Yes (7)
Meta description: Yes (2)

If this info is no longer available then my rating will remain low.

Yoast is Toast
By ,

Total garbage. Removed it from "all" client websites.

Sitemap Broken
By ,

Each release of this silly plugin gets worse, I have moved to another SEO plugin without bloat.

Sitemaps dont work.

Great Plugin
By , for WP 4.4.2

4.4.2 is great, except it conflicts with other top notch plugins. In particular it is disabling the jQuery UI datepicker functionality for the types plugin because of a JS issue in this version. Would have received 5 stars otherwise. Keep it up yoast!
