Yoast Premium SEO plugin Causing High CPU Usage

I just shifted to cloudways from other server.

When I turn on premium features of Yoast SEO plugin ( I am using wordpress) it is leading to high CPU usage (100%)

Anyone else facing this issue?

Thanks in advance.

I use Yoast SEO Premium on a few sites, but I can’t say that I’m experiencing the same issue. Everything going smoothly for me.

Good luck troubleshooting!

Hmm, are you really sure it’s YOAST?

I’m using the same plugin and have no problems with it. You can also place the issue on the GitHub of YOAST https://github.com/Yoast/wordpress-seo/issues

By reducing CPU usage , you will be putting less stress on your server , making your site faster.

  1. Check CPU Usage In AWStats.
  2. Eliminate High CPU Plugins.
  3. Remove Bloat With Clearfy.
  4. Disable WP-Cron.
  5. Clean Your Database.
  6. Upgrade To PHP 7+
  7. Offload Resources To CDNs.
    Try these things it might surely help you!
