The best SEO plugin
By , for WP 4.4.1

Very good SEO plugin.

One thing that changed recently and bother me and my clients : the new snippet editing tool : the "preview" and "editing link" is the same link : i have to click on the blue title to edit it.

I think it was way better (from an ux angle) before with 2 inputs : one for title, and one for description, and the snippet preview below.

Before that changes, my clients understood by themselve how to edit that, now i have to explain them how it works.

Es muy completa y tiene un sencillo tutorial que te enseña paso a paso cómo configurarlo.

Live Scanning Keyword Analysis Is Just Plain Stupid
By , for WP 4.4.1

I have been a user of Yoast for many years and I rarely ever take the time to even give reviews, but since they don't respond to anything on Github, maybe this will help get their attention.

I can launch a fresh WP install, paste 2,000 words into an article, and once you start typing a focus keyword it will slow down to a halt. I have replicated this issue across multiple servers, installs. This is not really a bug, but a behavior of the live scanning keyword analysis. With a 5,000 word article just starting to type a keyword results in a delay of 10 seconds like it is going to freeze. This is going backwards in my opinion. If you do this exact same thing on version before 3.0 it works instantly. The reason? Because the javascript doesn’t check until you click out of the box. This idea of scanning while typing a keyword is the dumbest decision any dev could ever make. Pardon my rant :) but someone at Yoast is seriously not thinking this through.

By for not anymore what is used to be,
By , for WP 4.4.1

therefore, I decided to change the SEO Plugin.

version 3 is horrible
By , for WP 4.4.1

Yoast SEO used worked great, however since V3 quite some things broke the usual great workflow: It does not recognize text anymore within PageBuilder text widgets - hence seo ratings are out of order and useless. The new traffic light status thing is really annoying and not productive, and don't even talk about the snippet editor.

what you guys smoked?

Bad Upgrade

Why are you confusing everybody?

Rip seo by yoast
By , for WP 4.4.1

The old version of this plugin was really good. The update ruined it all. I am going to start using All in one SEO or other plugins for all my pages.

Please revert the changes, the previous version was the best in the field of wp seo plugins.

Sitemap is missing!

Unable to edit posts
By , for WP 4.4.1

Since the update I have a 30-40 second lag when I go to edit previously published pages or posts and get a beachball. Had to deactivate.

It was great, but now...avoid like the plague
By ,

I and many others judging by the forums used to love Yoast SEO. But after version 2.3.5 it has plummeted downhill.
Examples of good to bad:
1) It use to support adding meta data on pages and posts, now gone
2) It use to provide both and overview and a details tab. The work as a writer and editor was done off of the details tab, now only the summary.
3) It never needed support, and I was willing to pay the $69 because it was so good, now I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.
