Version 3.0 & 3.01 need more testing
By ,

Love this plugin, but 3.0 and 3.01 causing connection timeouts. We're using the Avada Theme, with fusion page building templates. Reverting to previous version for now.

Version 3.0 & 3.01 not working when Wordfence Security is active
By ,

After updating to version3.0, Yoast SEO stopped working. After disabling wordfence security it started working. The window where the content, advanced and social icons is blank, However the icons when clicked causes a change respectively in the address bar - =edit#wpseo-meta-section-content, =edit#wpseo-meta-section-advanced, =edit#wpseo-meta-section-social. The Yoast general settings etc, etc is accessible.

Even version 3.01 cannot co-exist with wordfence security (wordfence security verion used : 6.0.20) The previous version of Yoast SEO didnot have any compatibilty issues with Wordfence security plugin. Wordfence security works fine without any issues. I am still rating it 5 since it worked fine until this update.

You have to turn off ad blocker if you have it to even access the new widget area/options. UX is so much harder to catch the little edit pencils. :(

Update screwed me.
By , for WP 4.3.1

I just did the latest update of Yoast SEO (Wednesday, November 18 2015). I got an error message saying that my webpage could not be indexed by search engines. I came to WordPress forums for help, and see that Yoast does not offer support for the free plugin, only for Premium. Sorry guys, but this is underhanded. You just lost me. I will be using another SEO plugin.

Upgrade 3.0 tricky
By , for WP 4.3.1

I have used Yoast SEO plugin for several years. I am disappointed to see that the new release is now interfering with pagebuilders in my themes. Also the message 'homepage cannot be indexed' is disturbing to see! Have they tested it thoroughly before releasing it?

Error messages for Google campaigns
By , for WP 4.3.1

Ok, I had to create an account here just to say how unethical is that "error message" you got after upgrading to 3.0 that in fact is an advertising campaign, as Mr. Vibe said below.

Update: Solution is here: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/updated-and-now-it-says-homepage-cant-be-indexed

However, still bad how this error redirects to a campaign instead to the page to fix this issue. It certainly can deceive users. I know it's a business and you want more conversions, but that's definitely not a good strategy.
