extremely slow
By , for WP 4.4.2

since them last few updates yoast seo has been getting extremely slow. I am pretty much unable to edit my site while yoast seo is activated. been having
this problem for a couple of weeks already, the latest updates didnt help either. pretty disappointing and impossible to keep working like that. time for change as there seems to be no fix....

Broke description and permalinks
By ,

Since their last crazy updates, now, the description is replaced by empty value (losing old description when saving) and the permalink is concatenate with itself with all saving... What are they doing ???

Taking two much resource and don't let me update my old posts
By , for WP 4.4.2

This is the mail I received from 'go daddy' after installing it:

"Your hosting account for computologic.com is approaching or exceeding its resource limits, which may cause it to be sluggish or even inaccessible to visitors during periods of high traffic."

Taking two much resource and don't let me update my old posts

After deactivating every thing is normal now.
'Yoast SEO' welcome to my deactivation list.

I loved Yoast
By , for WP 4.4.2

The Onpage.org arrangement is a time stealer. Convoluted, unnecessary and demanding, I never had enough time to actually get it to work. After 3 emails from onpage, still no worky.

This has long been a favorite, must-have plugin. But now there are many other options. I've received a lot of free service from Yoast and it will probably take a year to completely switch to something else or nothing. But right now, I feel like nothing is easier and less time consuming. I must have clicked "hide this notice" three thousand times last year.

The onpage.org button was the final decision maker for me. 2016 requires a better user experience for everyone. Always trying to selling me is moving me towards a better experience elsewhere. Did Goldman Sach's buy Yoast or something? Maybe that other seo plugin is better now.

Wishing Joost luck and grateful for the years of service. I'll still recommend the plugin to others as well as some of the KB. But I gotta keep moving, no time to respond to ads on every page load.\

Update
Thanks for the 500th reminder to buy your plugin. Helps me find installs to delete.

new update not compatible with other plug ins
By , for WP 4.4.2

I like Yoast but ever since the most recent update, it hasn't been working on my site. I found the issue to be that it was incompatible with the Slide Anything plug in.

Issues with current version - 3.1.1 update
By , for WP 4.4.2

on one site it crashes and 500 errors the entire site as soon as this plugin is active... on other sites it is fine.

On the problematic site it causes problems even when all other plugins are deactivated.

Wont be using this one again until problems are resolved.

Horrendous, avoid it and find something else!
By , for WP 4.4.2

This was just updated, and after it updated it destroyed all the work i had done. Now it wont even allow me to edit the snippet or ammend anything. I dont think im the only one either, just looked over all the other 1 star reviews and it appears others are having the very same issue, and no answer or word from the developers.

Yoast SEO, say hi to my trash can, you just got dumped.

Bugs, Bugs, Bugs
By , for WP 4.4.2

With every update there are more new bugs and old bugs are not fixed. IT also seems that Yoast doesn't know what a changelog is.
No response from the developers.

Dont install!
By , for WP 4.4.2

they surely took me to a walk in the park for the last 2 years.

Welcome All IN ONE SEO Plugin!!! hooray!

Url and slug forced rewriting
By , for WP 4.4.2

The last premium version of the plugin create a lot of problems on my site.

When I make any modification to a category, the plugin force the rewrite of my urls and slugs.

These cause to my site a lot of error 404, lost on seo positions, click and money, obviously.

The only answer from support it was a guide to resolve the problem that doesn't works.
