Was good, now terriable
By ,

Used to be a good plugin to add seo stuff. Now it's terrible and annoying. Updates every other day, annoying notifications. It's gone downhill and doesn't look likes it's improving at all.

Way too many updates and warnings
By , for WP 4.5.2

There are just so many updates and notifications that make using this plugin very annoying. It's a pity as without the constant distractions, this is a good plugin.

Stupid Annoying Notifications
By , for WP 4.5.2

Definitely the most ANNOYING plugin ever made!

Stupid annoying notifications every time. More annoying is the fact that you cannot close the notifications.

Annoying notifications after each update
By , for WP 4.5.2

This is a great SEO plugin, but each update creates annoying and persistent notifications in admin area. Latest update brings another terrible feature, annoying improvements notification.

i don't know what author is thinking about, really sad, gets 1 star for that

Please read books before writing!!!

hellishly painful to look at this code!

what is mean "maybe" in methods name?
"Do nothing"? -- You are seriously?
Don't use nested blocks! If you need it, you should create new function, not new block!
each function should return something. Please don't close function without return!
if function set something, it's name should begin "set"

There are pain in each string in your code. Please don't write code more!

Horrible Plugin! Stay Away!!
By , for WP 4.5.2

I have a website on a self hosted web server, with almost 80,000 web pages.
Yes there is a LOT of content.
I wanted to try Installing this plugin for better SEO, because there meta Title when google searching "SEO Yoast" it says. The # 1 wordpress seo.

After installing this plugin and setting everything up how i want it. Using the Yoast sitemap feature.
Giving it a week, google says
1500 Url Errors.
20,000 Pages are removed from index, and my structured data graph dropped from 67,000 to 32.
I lost a lots of views when i found out today. So i immediately removed this plugin, wishing it was a physical object that i can just throw in the trash.

Yoast, the only way i see you as a developer ever making any sort of success with your plugin, is how you advertise your garbage to others. This is now a total turn for how i feel towards your plugin.
I never really had good feelings towards your plugin because the name Yoast, sounds to weird.
Now i cant stand your P.O.S plugin for ruining my reputation with google.
I hope at this point you are making drastic changes with your plugin or QUIT ADVERTISING YOUR GARBAGE.

Used to love it, but now its just broken
By , for WP 4.5.2

It just doesn't work any more and interferes with other functions of WordPress, and the fact that there's been no word from Yoast about the bug means I'll have to find an alternative solution.

The Support is Very Bad
By , for WP 4.5.2

I signed up and paid for Yoast SEO Premium.
The installation did not work properly so I asked for support.
Support was very bad. I created a login for them and they said it did not work. Then they simply ignored me for 60 days, not replying to over 6 emails I sent.
When I finally got a response for my refund request, they said they would not because it was now over 30 days.
It is terrible when companies have such poor support. I am out $129. I wish I disputed it on my credit card while I had the chance.
