    Yoast price hike


    Has anyone else been hit by the Yoast SEO Premium price hike?

    My renewal went up 4-fold. No warning and spurious justification from the support staff.

    I don't mind paying for plugins, but this price increase is so huge.

    I won't be renewing and am looking for alternatives across all client sites.

    I stopped using Yoast a long time ago, the Free version of All in one SEO is far sufficient and it has some nice additional options. But an increase in price without any notification is not something you'd want to do if you want to keep your users happy.

    Yoast is consistently rated as one of the best plugins for WordPress SEO - so consider the lost opportunity cost if you dump it. Looks like it's around $89/year (or about 8 bucks a month)? I don't know how many sites you're running the premium version on but usually the free version suffices. There are, of course, hundreds of other tools.

    Why would you pay for Yoast though?



    These are the perks of $89... I'm not sure why anybody pays this, it's criminal.


    Write naturally. Put your main keyword(s) in your title and h1.

    When it flows in your content, link to other pages on your site.

    Download a free redirect plugin. Or, take 2 minutes out your day on how to do it in htaccess.


    Just saved you $89.
