BUT

XML sitemap feature seriously needs a "pages to exclude" functionality!

Great plugin!

But every must make additional seo changes, otherwise great!

This SEO Plugin is literally almost TOO Good
By ,

Required Plugin for most any site. Well documented, and thoroughly researched. Has more features than the majority of site owners will know how to deal with.

4 star rating is only because it may be TOO feature rich for many content editors. I would like to see some default settings changed, like exclusion of redundant content from xml sitemaps - based on standard WordPress installs.

I never launch a site without WordPress SEO by Yoast.

Great plugin!

Tested several similar plugins, this one beats most of them.

Anyhow, UI is a bit heavy, otherwise great!

One of the best, most useful WordPress plugins
By ,

I like how it seamlessly integrates with WP despite the fact that it makes a lot of changes on the produced HTML in order to make it more SEO friendly. I like the integration with the publishing interface in particular. And the bulk editor is also great: extra kudos for that!

I also like that it doesn't take a big performance hit and it doesn't introduce much latency so the site keeps being responsive enough and the pages don't take a lot extra time to load.

One complaint I have though is that the settings menu is a mess and everywhere I keep finding a lot of settings and functionality that I don't need and I wish I could be able to turn those things off somehow so I don't have to see them every time I am looking for a setting or editing a post. Being myself a WordPress plugin developer (https://wordpress.org/plugins/marketo-connector-public/) I know this issue is hard to tackle and you have to find a compromise between customizability (in order to satisfy advanced users) and simplicity (for the rest of us), but this plugin offers an all or nothing approach I am not very satisfied with. I want modularity. That is what I am talking about, I guess.

I am also a little bit worried think that the plugin is necessarily but dangerously intrusive, so it can be (and has been in the past: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/58963/discuss) the source of security issues leading to serious vulnerabilities.

I love this plugin
