no support what so ever
By ,

If you download this plugin and find any problems with you be sure you won't get any help from the Yoast team, apparently they only support those that pay for it, even when it is obvious that the glitch is because of something they have done.

Woocommerce and WPML
By , for WP 4.5.3

They claim to be compatible with WPML and WOOCOMMERCE but it is not true. The plugin is not working with the main shop page and there is a workaround for not multilingual sites, to make it work. As my site is multilingual with WPML I dont have any chance on using this plugin with my woocommerce site.

Apparently the problem is that YOAST cant find the main shop page as a page of woocommerce, so it does not show the metas.

Version 3.3.4 is broken
By , for WP 4.5.3

Yoast SEO was a good plugin and I have used it for many years.

The latest update is broken and not working.

I thought it is due to some conflict, but it is not the case. Most of the users are facing problem.

Premium Support is NON-RESPONSIVE. Do not buy Premium.
By , for WP 4.5.3

I paid the premium fee so that I could get help with overriding images and information on social sharing. No matter what I did, the basic Yoast SEO functionality wasn't working, the share kept defaulting to the fallback image (but was working with Ultimate SEO, so I know it was a Yoast problem.) I've been a loyal Yoast plugin user so wanted to figure out how to make it work with them (also, I don't like how Ultimate SEO handles canonical urls). I knuckled down, bought the premium version so I could get premium support. They initially responded, asking for an admin account. I sent it. And now, 24 hours and several follow up emails from me, I've heard nothing. They've completely ignored me. The primary point of my site is to be shared on social media and it's not working. Also, I'm down $69 and Yoast has no interest in helping me, and it's about to be closing time in the Netherlands so another day is going to go by with no response. DO NOT buy the Premium Version.

No Works as well as No reply
By , for WP 4.5.3

Very bed!,

I have use this plugin but it's not working, not save meta description and also have JS error. I have also ask question in support forum but didn't get any reply.

I can see that Yoast have replied in new threads but not mine, I think they are ignoring plugin error.

Not compatible with qtranslate

Be careful if using with qtranslate, as those two are not compatible!

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.

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.
