Great plugin very customizable
By ,

Great for tweaking your SEO needs. Easy to use and useful for beginners.

SEO para dummies
By , for WP 4.5.1

Muy interesante plugin, que permite a tanto el que conoce como el que no conoce los principios del SEO, mejorar su contenido web de cara a mejorar el posicionamiento.

Análisis detallado de keywords, qué le falta a tus publicaciones, etc. etc.

Good, but..
By , for WP 4.4.2

Although it's good, 4 stars. That's because the documentation is still strange to me after all this time. Its a very technical explanation assuming deep SEO knowledge, though the target group over time seems to have changed to users that want SEO to work with minimum effort.

Great plugin, but it doesn't show count of total external links
By , for WP 4.4.2

The Yoast SEO plugin is great. But, after installing a major update from them, most of the times, they disable the feature where the plugin tells how many nofollow links are there in the article (out of total external links).

The current version of Yoast SEO 3.1.2 doesn't tell how many external links are there in my current article. This feature is very handy for me as I can easily check if all my major external links have been nofollowed or not. I manually nofollow many of them.

Now, I have to count and see myself to check the nofollow thing.

love it except

I downloaded it for the RSS feed customization ability but can't find it anywhere. Other than that, it's great.

Nice SEO but Awkward to Use
By , for WP 4.4.2

This post applies to Yoast SEO version 3.1:

I do like the Yoast SEO plugin, but two things won't allow me to give it more than 4 stars...

  1. The Snippet editor has been reworked twice now... each time it adds tons of unnecessary code and usability suffers. Please... why not just have a stupid text input box with the current title already editable in it, and let us "edit" it?! Seeing the title in the box, then having to retype it when you want to change one word in it is frustrating. I have a lot of posts that have perfectly good titles that just need a word changed or a punctuation added... to do this you have to click in the box where the title is ALREADY VISIBLE but not selectable, then re-type the entire title from scratch by hand. The way it is now, I'm not sure you can truthfully call it "edit title" when you have to input the entire title the first time you want to make any changes.
    The description snippet could work the same way... just a simple text-area with your default snippet in it please!
  2. It seems like the plugin is making posting articles a lot slower and more cumbersome than it used to be, and now it looks like you'll be charging for it.

Please address these issues and I'll be glad to give it 5-stars again.

A great plugin!

I have used this plugin with two themes Kleo and Divi. It worked well with Kleo, great analysis of the content and images on the page. Quite happy with the compatibility.

However, it is not so compatible with Divi. The major issue was with alt tags of images. Hope they sort this issue soon.

Overall a great plugin
* Easy to access
* Online Documentation (video tutorials)
* Nice UI
* Real time analysis

detailed - but documentation a bit 'techie'
By , for WP 4.4.2

The Yoast SEO Plugin makes life very easy for the inexperienced user - and seems to provide some opportunities for the more Advanced user. We believe we are getting good outcomes from using it - but would like to understand some of the features a little better.
The Plugin is probably worth 5 stars, but I've rated on my experience (or lack thereof)!

Great Plugin
By , for WP 4.4.2

4.4.2 is great, except it conflicts with other top notch plugins. In particular it is disabling the jQuery UI datepicker functionality for the types plugin because of a JS issue in this version. Would have received 5 stars otherwise. Keep it up yoast!

Not as good as it was
By , for WP 4.4.1

Usability was very good but not so much now. It's been updated recently but unfortunately like many things that don't seem to require changing but get changed anyway they have a detrimental effect which is exactly what has happened with this. Still not bad though.
