    For three sites I deactivated the Wordpress sitemap plugin and made Yoast do the job because somehow it was a lot of issues blah blah.

    Result? I've lost rank and fewer pages are being crawled.

    Anyone else? Do you trust Yoast plugin?

    Yoast is a MUST for all my websites..

    Even when I was big into PBNs with 100+ domains, each one of them had Yoast installed..

    All tests run.. Yoast was the difference that ranked sites just a few positions higher over every other plugin...
