We are not happy with your new update. The new look is really bad.
By ,

There is a lot we can't do with it any more. We can't see the focus kaywords and we don't really see how many words there are left for use to use. The SEO title is not there as it use to be. The Meta description is not as it was before and we hate it. It's not telling us any more when we get Yes(1) for Article Heading, the Page title, page URL, content and meta description.

Can any one suggest us some think as good as SEO by Yost use to be?

Kind Regards.

I'm looking for an alternative plugin for WP. These recent updates are a joke!Any suggestions?

New Update is a Disaster
By , for WP 4.3.1

This used to be a great plugin. But with the last 3 updates they have lost the complete objective.. Seriously looking for an alternative without causing anymore damage ! Stay away from the Free one !

3.0.x version unusable
By , for WP 4.3.1

This has been always been the first pluggin I installed in any wordpress installation and for my first commercial web-page I went directly to the premium functions just to pay them for their great work.

After the 3.0.x update it became all problems and their attitude is just unbelievable, I will keep for now the 2.6.5 version and look for a substitute.

Have a multisite? Look for alternatives.

Just read the support section here. The number of problems that came with 3.x is depressing.

Not my go to SEO plugin any more..
By , for WP 4.3.1

After being my favoritt plugin for several years I think its time to change to another SEO plugin.. Its amazing how they push out so many updates with more bugs every time. The old version before 3.0 was a lot better!

Can no longer recommend
By , for WP 4.3.1

We have used both versions for many sites. This review is only for the free, per WP policies.

Causes far more problems than it fixes. 3.x versions have had conflicts with WP itself (text editor) and with numerous plugins.

Too much dashboard spam and what appear to be affiliate links.

Even for a free plugin, if you have a million plus users, you should at least do a little testing to make sure you do not screw up WordPress functionality and a few major plugins like WordFence.

Either use a different SEO plugin or an older 2.x version of this.

I think this should be forked by a group of responsible contributors.
