[Paid version] Waiting for them to fix a bug for over 2 months now
By , for WP 4.3.1

I've mailed quite a lot with the Yoast team about a very annoying bug. Each time they told me that they would fix it.

It has been two months now and still no fix. I paid for this plugin, so I expected them to fix this. However it seems to be no priority. Too bad...

Breaks far too easy. Unreliable.

I'm brand new to yoast as a product, but thought it was cool. The little Green circles are nice, however after a few days the plugin just bailed on me. It shows the name Yoast on the post page, but no longer has the data fields to enter anything.
I google searched the problem and found hundreds of references for the same issue going back a few years.

I removed it and loaded ALL in ONE... let's see if that one works.

Yoast is far too risky to use.

Did Yoast die?
By , for WP 4.2.4

Updated to 2.3.4 for WP 4.2.4 and I lost my complete Yoast interface. My sitemaps have all been altered and I have no access to any options what so ever. It is running in the background, but has greatly affected my rankings to nothing, my home page doesn't get picked up instead all my first tier pages have all been kicked down rankings and are the only ones to appear. Should I get rid of Yoast cause it seems to be causing ranking griefs. And if so is there a product out there that is more like the older versions of Yoast that actually work?

Search Console this feature is not useful
By , for WP 4.2.4

After the last update i see that the Search Console feature limit to controle our link (404, error..) we cannot redirect the url, so why did you put it there if we have to but the pro version. better to remove it from the console. the plugin begin more commercial and often there is more chamge that hurt our website.

Too many annoying warnings
By , for WP 4.2.4

Why there's more and more notifications and warnings which can't be turned off anywhere??! Takes the whole space above the fold that you need scroll down in order to actually update my site. Please, fix this asap.

Bugs/updates galore
By , for WP 4.2.4

Too many bugs and regressions, too many updates. No apparent testing or quality control, unprofessional product. 1/5 stars.

By , for WP 4.2.4

Plugin is good overall, however wait a few days before installing updates because they don't seem to test before releasing. Oh, and if they release security updates with their bug fixes, tough cookies, cross your fingers and hope the update doesn't crash your site or break some functionality.

Update broke our entire admin area
By , for WP 4.2.3

Updating your plugin, broke the entire admin area. Had to delete the plugin folder and use our old version to get back up and running. Looks like I'm not the only one. Other people are having the same issue. Plugin always worked well before, but now your updates are taking sites down and you're removing features. No bueno. We'll just stay on the version we are on.

Money Hungry
By , for WP 4.2.3

I am all for supporting developers but it is not cool to take away features that were once available for free. The 301 redirect is gone and I will now move onto a new SEO plugin. Bubye...
