Yoast SEO 3.x.x - Worst Update Of 2015
By ,

The 3.x.x update is by far the worst update of 2015. Look at the support section and reviews for more details.....

An excellent plugin throughout the years
By , for WP 4.3.1

I've used this plugin on multiple sites for several years and have always found it to be comprehensive yet easy to use. It's an incredible value at $0.00. They really don't have to offer anything for free, but they do. And not only that, they actively maintain the free version to my benefit and the benefit of more than 1,000,000 others.

Thank you, Yoast.

PS. If you're seeing 1 star reviews about issues with the initial 3.0 release, consider that Yoast released several updates in quick succession. It's very troubling to see impatient and ungrateful reviews like "it worked fine for years until this one update, so I give the whole thing 1 star". Yoast is committed to their product. If something goes wrong, they fix it.


Thank you, thank you. thank you

Along with the reading I've been doing about SEO, this plugin makes tons of sense and looking at my source code I can see what it is doing. The cues are really helpful. Latest update was a little weird with the new interface but I'm getting used to it. Thank you!

3.x are Broken
By , for WP 4.3.1

I use Yoast Plugin since few years and all run fine. But 3.x broke all in my web site. My theme (DtTh7), my plugin (Visual Composer) and WordPress's posts !!
Please Yoast, roll back !

We are not happy with your new update. The new look is really bad.

There is a lot we can't do with it any more. We can't see the focus kaywords and we don't really see how many words there are left for use to use. The SEO title is not there as it use to be. The Meta description is not as it was before and we hate it. It's not telling us any more when we get Yes(1) for Article Heading, the Page title, page URL, content and meta description.

Can any one suggest us some think as good as SEO by Yost use to be?

Kind Regards.

downgraded to 2.x

Ouch, what a disaster with 3.x release. And no, emptying the browser cache doesn't do nada. This is a very broken release.

Downgrading to 2.x:
and all is dandy.

keeping the ranking high, but will have to wait a few months before i will try 3.x again.

Last version working properly!
