Shameful customer support, arrogant developer attitude
By , for WP 4.3.1

I'm using Yoast + I've bought the Woocommerce SEO add-on, and customer support and developer attitude is frankly horrific.

Confirmed bugs are left unresolved for months and months - and after continuously asking support about the status on a bug they verified themselves, they're offering to (perhaps) fix it.. six months from now!

What sort of attitude is this towards paying customers? Shameful.

Wij gebruiken WordPress met als plugin Yoast SEO.
Zijn zeer tevreden over beide programma's.
Werkt uitstekend en is makkelijk te onderhouden.
Prima, alleen jammer dat niet alles in het Nederlands is.

Lost features on free version

You shouldn't remove features from the free version and start charging for those features

Where did all the positive reviews suddenly come from?
By , for WP 4.4.2

So after a tsunami of complaints, all of a sudden there were many positive reviews about this plugin.

Hmmmmm, I'm not sure, but I have a feeling...

Urgently we need an alternative
By ,

It was a excellent plugin. I encourage everyone to look for another alternative. Each new update is developed to lose features and you pay for the version pro.

There is not intelligent back to previous version. We need a plugin to add features or to stay with the standard features, and not remove them !!

Caution: This is the beginning of a death foretold.

the recent update has caused major problems
By , for WP 4.4

I have no problem with this plugin changing so that you have to pay for some of its better features. The problem, however, is that those of us who have been using the full-featured free version for years updated to the newest version and discovered to our surprise that much of the functionality was missing, and articles which we had worked hard on to achieve decent SEO suddenly lost much of their optimization.

This was most noticeable in the meta description. In the former version, there was a box where one could type in the description, and Yoast told you how many characters you had left. Now, all our meta descriptions have been removed and I believe just the first 156 characters of our articles replaced the metas we had written. To make it worse, to change the meta description now, you have to hover over a blank box which doesn't even have a cursor in it, so you can't see what you're doing.

Also, the keywords have changed. For quite some time, multiple keywords were supported in Yoast. Now it's just one keyword and you have to pay for the functionality for multiple keywords. Sure, that's fine, but it was sprung on us with no notice whatsoever, so now our SEO keywords are broken on all articles, posts and pages.

Not only is it shockingly bad form to undermine all the work users have put into their websites, but if I'd been shown Yoast as it exists now back when I first decided to start using it, I would have skipped it and moved on to another SEO plugin. It's just not very good.

As a stopgap you can download an old version of Yoast, but no matter what, you'll have to get a new SEO plugin soon -- no one wants to risk an outdated plugin -- and you'll have to do all the work again. I'm probably going to get separate plugins for each aspect instead of one do-it-all plugin, so if one plugin becomes useless like Yoast has, I won't lose all my work, just some of it.

Tolles SEO-Plugin

Sehr umfangreiches und leicht zu bedienendes Plugin. Gerade die SEO-Vorschau unter jedem Artikel ist gro├čartig!
