Your Updates Hijack Clicks
By , for WP 4.1.2

I've updated your plugin on several of my client's websites recently and in the past. Every time, when the updates are complete and I click on an admin page to go to, your plugin hijacks the click sending me to your update page.

Please stop that. Otherwise it's a good plugin, but that really needs to stop.

Good plugin with annoyances
By , for WP 4.2.2

This is a solid plugin but my one pet peeve is that every time you update the plugin, your next click no matter what you're trying to do is the 'Thank you for updating' page. This is a big workflow interrupter, it's intrusive and not needed.

UPDATE: It looks like the devs have tamed the notification, now it's a small notice instead of a forced page load. Hope this happens for all releases going forward, thank you.

UPDATE UPDATE: Nope, you still have to click X to get rid of this notice. Bummer.

Non-existent support
By , for WP 4.1.1

The plugin itself is OK, nothing extremely unique. I guess most SEO plugins offer more or less the same features.

The support however is non-existent.

Latest not working properly with 4.1.1
By ,

Especially the Social media parts of the plugin. Specified images won't load as previews on FB and the FB description is being overridden by the blog text.

Anyone else getting this problem?

Still incompatible with Google XML Sitemaps plugin
By , for WP 4.1.1

Only 3 stars from me. Because it is still incompatible with the Google XML Sitemaps plugin that does the job MUCH better than this plugin.

The author should just focus on SEO and stop meddling with sitemaps. Leave that to the other plugin to do the job.

Good plugin but...
By , for WP 4.1.1

This plugin is well done and very useful but you have to be careful with updates... Wait for a week before updating or you could have problems with your website (too many updates of updates...).

You should also pay attention to its incompatibility with BuddyPress... (blank <title>)

Love the plugin
By , for WP 4.1

It a great plug in , but when you encounter a problem you will not get any support if you have the free version. many of us do not have the 90$ to dish out for a plugin. which i think it a bit pricy for a plugin.

By , for WP 4.0.1

Social Tab NOT WORKING at all!!!!

No image and no description are charged on share!!!!

Great PlugIn with some functions missing
By ,

I am missing the ability to geotag the page (important for bing), no integration of Dublin Core or Microformats, which is IMO important for a SEO Optimization. I also would like if the focus keyword would be written in the meta keyword tag as well, which is not happening and I absolutely don't know why!
