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

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.

know its better

What the hell happened?
By , for WP 4.3.1

This latest release is an absolute mess.

Yoast used to be simple and elegant, now it's a confusing, buggy mess.

Looking for another solution immediately. Any recommendations?

Ack! Bring back description box & char. count please
By , for WP 4.3.1

Why, you ask?

1. I can no longer tell at at glance if I've added my description to a particular post or its just pulling from the content.

2. I can no longer quickly grab the content in the description box for copying and pasting into my alt tags on all my images, which I do all the time. I have now to click into the box then highlight all the text and THEN copy. Slows me down big time and incredibly inconvenient.

3. Without the character count I can't project what rewording I need to use to to make it fit. I just have to keep typing stuff.


How to destroy a myth...
By , for WP 4.3.1

This version of SEO plugin will be your disaster...
Rollback as soon as in 3.0 or you will use your script by your own!!

All people running away starting use of "other scripts" like...

rolled back to 2.3.5
By ,

everything after the 3.x update has been a mess: lots of bugs and nothing working...

Used WP Rollback to get back to the last working version which is 2.3.5.

I hope they fix it soon... yet I guess they have no idea how since all this is happening.

Too bad, this used to be the best plugin.

Cool New Features for taxonomy and tags
By , for WP 4.3.1

I just realized the new COOL features in the update, that in individual taxonomy or tags, you can hover over the title or description and then you can edit it for unique SEO! Plus write an html description - with a visual editor and spice it up with ie; bold.

So it's COOL!

I feel like I just find a candy under the tree!

Thanks a bunch!

The nagging has reached a new level of annoying
By , for WP 4.3.1

The plugin works okay, this new 3+ version sucks, and the plugin will continuously nag you about nonsense, constantly. On every page, over and over and over.. I've removed it and switched to the other big SEO plugin.. I don't have time to be irritated with nonsense

Version 3.x is terrible!
By , for WP 4.3.1
