Migrate away now; the sooner the better
By , for WP 4.3.1

This happens every time Yoast release a new version and I am glad I did not fully integrate this plugin to my website. Its better to add meta title and description on each page manually; its totally worth it. Time to completely remove it before it destroys my website.

Removing Yoast SEO
By , for WP 4.4

I tried All in One SEO Pack. It does everything that I need and it actually works.

A Complete Disaster
By , for WP 4.3.1

I don't know what this Yoast Premium is all about. But this plugin was absolute perfection.

The new UI looks like it was designed by a 2 year old.

The only prize this can win this year is worse app update of 2015. They only want money for the premium version now.

What the hell they did to the plugin?

They have removed the boxes for something that does not work, this is confusing enough and should not be so.

Meta description

WTF where is meta description box? I'm searching new plugin!

F**k This New Version 3.0.3

Be careful! Do not make the last update!
Many essential functionalities have been removed in order to encourage people to buy the premium version very very expensive.

The software update is catastrophic.

By , for WP 4.3.1

i updated today and my site was screwed...Yoast seo before the update was great...i changed from all in one SEO because i felt it was a great plugin..but now OMgosh....i have now deactivated it...i had to get my host to help me with my site because i could not do anything on it.....Now i am scared to reactive it. I will now have to either go back to using all in one SEO or find another plugin. The Update is a disaster!!!

Don't update to 3.x, it's a disaster!!!

What the hell are you doing? Yost SEO was one of the best plugins for WordPress. With the update to 3.x this plugin is a complete mess. Why you have changed the core of the plugin? This is one of my most terrible experiences with a plugin.

This is a warning to all users of Yost SEO, do not update to 3.x! I have used WP rollback to get back the version 2.3.5. I don't have time for this nonsense to get used to a new layout and missing meta descriptions.

You just destroyed your best plugin and lost confidence forever! I will never update your plugin again and will see if I can use another one instead.

Last Update is a complete disaster
By , for WP 4.3.1

What's going on? Since the last update I lost all my SEO settings! I can't afford to edit each and every page of my websites, to restore manually all my seo settings (contents). It was a lot of work!!!
Also I did not personalize each and every page or archive or media, and I would have to do this now if I don't want to show up titles like this on google: This is an example title - edit by clicking here
Even the url's in content snippets are lost and replaced by exemple.org/example-post/ and you cant edit "exemple.org"!!
It was a good plugin since now but who would like to connect to his wordpress site and edit maybe 500 or 1000 pages to correct the update issue ?

I am desperate! Will have to deinstall and look for a different SEO plugin. What a Mess! Can't imagine the idea behind this change.
