i used this plugin for a very long time but the new update which came out today is so different and have less options than the one before (or u pay for the pro version)
i am very disappointed with the new version that i will look for a better option now
very bad work dear developers
Looking at my original comment below I think I was a little too quick to jump on the "let's b*tch about it" bandwagon. I'm working with it on a newer site - yeah, I liked it better before - for now - but I can see this as being really good once I learn my way around the changes. I want to know more about the "multiple focus keywords" available in the premium version - that might just be the thing that makes me upgrade to premium.
It was a good plugin.
Many problems now, not to mention the BS way that they've introduced it. I'm running on on several sites, I looked at the premium version but didn't think the cost was justified, unlike the other premium plugins I use. I'm definitely looking at my other options.
These guys might be good at SEO but they have a thing or two to learn about doing business.
The meta description meta box and html editor of posts editor has disappeared after the update to 3.0.1 versión ...
..they released version 3.0
This newest version is so heavy and has many bugs and quarks. UX is clunky and, if you are used to the older versions, less useful.
The live update thing is neat but adds a lot of overhead to your edit post/page page as well as breaking some functions in some themes and editors.
IMO this wasn't ready for a mainstream release and should have been offered as an opt-in beta.
Giving 2.5 stars until these new problems are addressed and resolved
After reading this post, you can keep working with the plugin after this 3.0.1 update. However, there seem to be some issues with performance on Firefox, specially working with large pages or posts.
This update is full of bugs, cant even edit the keyword/snippets it freezes and crashes firefox. Avoid, way too many bugs
I have used this plugin for years. Sadly (as with many updates) the developer "jumps the shark" and tries to be too clever. Today I was training a new employee - and noticed the normal "description" area is no longer there. I also discovered you can't intuitively work efficiently with this plugin. You now have to click on the "snippet" editor to change description - but you don't really know if you're working in the right area because the snippet has problems working smoothly (I use Firefox). Yoast developers - what is wrong with you? After an hour of frustration - I moved back over to "All-In-One SEO" - an SEO plugin I had not used in 10 years. I should now thank you for this - as I can now change titles, and descriptions right from the dashboard - and this will save some serious time. I may not get the hour back I spent swearing at your new update - but I will get some of it back working with All-In-One. Great job Yoast! - you deserve all the lousy reviews you are now certain to get.
I am deeply disappointed that they first publish a totally buggy version and after I ask for help they send me a standard reply without even answering my questions but at the same e-mail telling me that I can pay for a premium service or go elsewhere. I`ve seen a lot but this is some of the worse.
DO NOT INSTALL version 3.0.1 if you have any non standard wordpress - it`not working AND the company is not playing fair!
Plugin shoot down my admin area. It result dangerous, too many bugs
The latest update confused me because I did not know I could edit my meta description. Other than that, my social network description manager is gone. I don't know how I feel about that. My twitter cards started shrinking last week so we will see.
