very useful

very useful but i cant find keywrd content since last updates. i donno why but yoast did not like keywords from begining, and i think complately removed

unforgivable !

I learn about your Yoast 7 bug by inadvertance, 3 month after it happened!

You made us lost a lot of money!

I checked on my email, how I could have miss that information, but NOTHING!
Exept one newsletter email, where the Yoast 7 BUG is not event in the first paragraph, and not even in the email subject. So unless people are reading entirely all your newsletter, how many did not see this informaiton?

How many people still don’t know about your issue?

I can’t even believe this really happened, such a stupid move, please tell Joost not to touche any code anymore!
