Works!
By , for WP 3.5.1

I have been using this plugin for all my WordPress sites as a freelance web designer/developer. All sites I have used it on have done really well in being found online and I believe the plugin has been a big part of that success.

Thanks Yoast!

Great and genius plugin

I have been using another Seo plugin for 3 years, but I needed to resolve the issue of page/1/ archive so I found this plugin which does also other stuff.
It is completely free and you get a lots of improvements to your website. I advised this plugin to my friends and I saw their website was getting better speed wise. There are a lot of options but even if you are not a Seo consultant you don't have panic.

I have some issues I didn't resolved:

1.sitemap.xml works on some of my websites while others don't, getting a 404 error page, so I had sadly to untick this feature :(
2. post titles: still having issues on post titles which don't show the website name even though I set it in the main settings. :( no idea why.

Apart from that I would strongly recommend and I hope this plugin will be free for life

Not sure why I waited so long

Actually, yes I do. I was a long time Thesis user (2009-2013). I was fine with Thesis' SEO options. About 6 months, though, I started building my own framework (the Volatyl Framework) and decided to leave SEO options out of the theme. Besides smart markup, I don't see SEO as a theme's responsibility. Anyway, I needed something to handle SEO for me when I use my framework. This was the most popular one so I gave it a shot. Crap. I missed out for so long. I run 5 plugins max. This is one of them.

Bugged
By ,

I'm seeing bugs in this plugin and I'm surprised. The one star reviews from what I'm reading are the developers so I feel supported in my decision to rate two stars. I'm even more surprised at the number of so called SEO experts writing positive reviews with 5 whole stars! **** me they should know better but then I suppose they don't. Wouldn't the best of the best create their own SEO solution, I know I will.

When I tried to hide the breadcrumbs it wouldn't hide. Double checked the setting for it called "Enable Breadcrumbs". That was just the start but I'm not going to go on and on.

It looks to me like the plugin was one of the earliest SEO plugins to offer so many features. Many of which do work great, many which appear to work great and many feature with settings that people never use. It is getting so many one star ratings due to this.
