The recent update to the Yoast SEO plugin is one to maybe wait on. Yoast 14.0 launched and a few smaller patches have been released to cope with some issues it casued. Overall it seems to be a great idea and where it works it should speed up your site.

Some things to review:

  1. The official issues page from Yoast
    https://yoast.com/yoast-seo-14-0/
  2. You Should take a backup before you update to 14.0
  3. The plugins support requests, most are realted to the new database setup needs the plugin has https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/wordpress-seo/
  4. A new ‘tester’ plugin and at the time of adding this 4 patches to fix even more bugs: https://developer.yoast.com/blog/yoast-test-helper-easy-testing/

The fix for this is unclear at present, I have seen mixed results across themes and hosts. I will have a fix live as soon as this becomes more clear for now rollback the plugin.

You can also head here:

And download any version of the plugin.
