Superb if you know what you're doing
By , for WP 4.0

WordPress SEO is one of my "must have" plugins for just about every site I build. It's built by an extremely well-respected WordPress development team and has had consistent updates for as long as I can remember.

I particularly love the title rewrite, social meta, and XML site map features. It takes care of a lot of the technical SEO practices that I've worked hard to understand and use properly but would take forever to implement myself. The new-ish bulk editor feature looks really nice though I've never actually found a time to use it.

I give this rating only 4 stars because I do find that the interface is a little too aggressive for my tastes in adding a very large extra box of fields on all post editing pages (and others) and adding extra columns to the All Posts/All Pages admin pages. Those features are all very useful when needed, but I find they often distract my clients rather than help them better understand their site's SEO and content. Making this plugin a little more "opt-in" than "opt-out" in terms of admin features would bring this rating up to 5 stars.

I have been using this plugin on 5 of my sites and it is a great plugin. It is very simple to use and I have got feedback from my clients saying how it has improved people finding them on the internet.

Lots of Handy Tweaks Recommended by Real Experts
By , for WP 4.0

This plugin does a ton of stuff, lots of little SEO tweaks recommended by real experts, a great XML sitemap system, OpenGraph and Twitter Card controls, and more.

Beyond little SEO tweaks, the module in the editor is very handy and gives several recommendations for making your post content, title, and description more clear and concise, which is really what every search engine wants anyway.

Muchas gracias al equipo Yoast

Latest update Oct. 2014 broke WP links
By , for WP 4.0

The latest update (Oct. 2014) broke the link function in the WordPress toolbar. This plugin is the only one I installed, updated or uninstalled in a couple of weeks. It's the only change I made to the site, so I know it's the problem. I deactivated and reactivated it, clearing all caches in between.

When I contacted Yoast, they basically said, "Sorry, you're on your own." So while I hope the next iteration of the plugin restores the functionality this one broke, I can't say much about their attitude.

the best, the easiest, the most updated SEO plugin
By , for WP 4.0

if you're serious about SEO on wordpress, forget the rest and dive deep into working of Joost de Valk's Yoast SEO for wordpress, that's the best and most updated (with Google) SEO plugin and easiest to use. It does so much out of the box, almost takes care of an individual's responsibilities in a web team.
