Good for Beginner
By , for WP 4.3.1

One of the best SEO Plugin for WordPress. When i was a beginner i stared with some Other plugins but was not satisfied. Then someone suggested me to use SEO by Yoast for my site and after using the Plugin i have never regreted it for using. Now I run Two sites of Mine named [Link redacted] and [Link redacted] and even use This plugins for my Clients sites and suggest them to use it.

What happened to the meta description field?

By , for WP 4.3.1

Where is the Meta title and description field ? Its not showing up in multiple themes i have,

New update in posts uses a snippet editor to edit meta title and description stuff... click it

Would NOT recommend.

Used to be a useful plugin, but with the add-on of onpage.org tracking, and the bad design change, I would not recommend anyone uses this plugin.

Well im not sure if i am game to install this

Dunno if its even worth the trouble to bother installing. Seems that Yoast have made some serious errors of judgement with the latest update.

I note that some competitors have already released plugins to counter some of the branding issues that yoast have attempted to add to websites running the plugin. For example, "Remove Branding for Yoast SEO" by Suitpress...and "SO Clean Up Yoast SEO" by SO WP.

Something really is drastically wrong when competitors jump on the bandwagon to produce plugins to fix stupid issues with this one. Yoast need to come back to earth...they are obviously up in the clouds.

Errors, bugs which are affecting the site and the user experience

... as you know thats not good for SEO. I dont understand how such a great plugin was turned in to disaster in only few weeks.

Keep is simple Yoast. Dont complicate things!

Be very careful with a plugin!

Hi there,

The latest version crashed 200 websites of our clients.

The longer you develop a plugin the less it suitable for SEO becomes. Every second update brings more headache than any useful features.

Important note!

Be very careful - the latest version don't allow to you have as long titles and descriptions as you want. After 153 letters all the following words breaked by "…" dots!

It's the most stupid solution you can only imagine!

We are almost ready to delete a plugin from all current and future sites.

Sincerely,
Igor
