Bloated and way to many notifications
By ,

Bloated and way to many notifications. Has been my goto plugin for years but looking hard for alternatives. Probably an xml-sitemap plugin and an open graph plugin. Today the most important SEO plugin is no plugin, let the content speak for itself.

undoubtedly the best
By , for WP 4.5.2

I was looking for a comprehensive SEO plugin for my corporate site & now after months of experience I can say that Yoast is undoubtedly the best amongst the rest of the others. Kudos to the team!

Undeniably good
By , for WP 4.5.3

I have used Yoast on many websites now, and it is simple to use, and ticks all the right boxes. Whether you just install it and don't configure any further, or you pay for the premium version and set it up fully, you are getting excellent SEO performance. Thank you, Yoast. :)

Growing to hate this plugin
By ,

With every recent update it just pushes itself more to the center and gets irritating to a point where the irritation trumps the usefulness. Used to be that you could choose to set and forget most options, now impossible as new and mostly unwanted features insinuate themselves everywhere.

Very sadly looking for alternatives at this point.

Breadcrumb issue
By , for WP 4.5.2


I am facing an issue with breadcrumb that it is showing home>product>category
but i want home>product>category>subcategory

Lots of mixed reviews
By ,

I have used this plugin on a number of sites, and have never encountered many of the issues mentioned in other reviews. Maybe I have just been lucky. This is a great product, with a lot of helpful information. This is sure to get your rankings up.

Thanks for this plugin,

Add Dublin Core tags!

I use an additional plugin Add Meta Tag due to the presence of Dublin Core. If You added Dublin Core in Your plugin then that would be awesome and would not have to use two plugins. Sorry for my bad English.

Used to be great, before she started nagging so much
By , for WP 4.5.2

This used to be the best SEO plugin, hands down.

Now, even with the SO Hide SEO Bloat plugin installed (which makes her look a bit more attractive) she's just not what she used to be.

I've decided to use Genesis' built-in SEO options from now on. Simply can't stand how this plugin went from perfect to a dud.

So long and thanks for all the fish.

Getting annoying
By , for WP 4.5.2

This latest update makes the plugin very confusing for newbies. I can no longer recommend it for that reason. I wish Yoast would just leave the plugin be. It doesn't need all this change, nor the extra features.
