Good! Very helpful

This is great plugin for SEO the tools is complete. Thanks. :)

One of the best, most useful WordPress plugins
By ,

I like how it seamlessly integrates with WP despite the fact that it makes a lot of changes on the produced HTML in order to make it more SEO friendly. I like the integration with the publishing interface in particular. And the bulk editor is also great: extra kudos for that!

I also like that it doesn't take a big performance hit and it doesn't introduce much latency so the site keeps being responsive enough and the pages don't take a lot extra time to load.

One complaint I have though is that the settings menu is a mess and everywhere I keep finding a lot of settings and functionality that I don't need and I wish I could be able to turn those things off somehow so I don't have to see them every time I am looking for a setting or editing a post. Being myself a WordPress plugin developer (https://wordpress.org/plugins/marketo-connector-public/) I know this issue is hard to tackle and you have to find a compromise between customizability (in order to satisfy advanced users) and simplicity (for the rest of us), but this plugin offers an all or nothing approach I am not very satisfied with. I want modularity. That is what I am talking about, I guess.

I am also a little bit worried think that the plugin is necessarily but dangerously intrusive, so it can be (and has been in the past: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/58963/discuss) the source of security issues leading to serious vulnerabilities.

I love this plugin

Really loved the plugin. Until the WordPress 4.1 update that is.
With an Elegant Theme (Divi 2.2) the page builder is gone...
Cannot change text anymore. Nothing...
Had to disable Yoast SEO. This is not good for my SEO / search results!
Anyone having the same issue?

I am not sure, but I guess, since I used Yoast, I have had incompatibilities with Woocommerce... otherwise it would work like a breese

Simple way to work with SEO
By , for WP 4.0.1

So grateful for this plugin, I can actually "see" the effect of wording and titles etc.

Would give it a 5 but it can be overwhelming on the user side.

Very good seo plugin
By , for WP 4.1.1

Thank you so much for the great works.

It does the works of which it may be too technical to me. Overall, it is a great seo plugin.

Update (25/2/2015): it broke since last few days & have to get my consultant to rectify it. Quite a shame, downgrade it from 5* to 4*
