One thing bad about Yoast SEO is its security, in history it goes vulnerable many times giving hackers access to your site.
No known Threat.
Yoast activates all of its features at once so you site speed may decrease, but there is an addon with W3 Total cache to boost speed.
All the modules are seprATealty activated on your choice so there is less problem about its speed.
I read a lot of people reviews on community forums and come with a solution that 90 out of 100 users recommend using Yoast.
It also has a lot of lovers around the globe but not too much.

The An easier way to choose things you only need.

404 Monitor is an aweosme feature.
Deep internal linking is another plus point.
Make things complicated for newbies.
Late update of features.
That’s enough to judge the difference between Dimond and Gold. If we compare Yoast SEO with SEO ultimate we can easily judge that Yoast have better features than SEO ultimate. I mostly prefer to use Yoast SEO plugin even this blog is using it, but I also recommend people to use SEO Ultimate where interlinking and no index type features are required.
SEO doesn’t boost on changing plugins, but it can be better by increasing search bots interaction and understanding with your site, also you should consider other ON page and OFF page factors which affect SEO.
Hope it’s clear, if you have any problem feel free to ask me in comment section.
