Functionality

Complex software, but gives you flexible and powerful control over your URLs

Ease of use

Not the easiest if you need a specific setup, but out of the box works with one click with almost all software, even 3rd party components

Support

Now that they moved away from AnythingDigital and handle support internally, excellent, friendlier, and work harder to resolve issues

Documentation

Great documentation across the board

Value for money

Price is on point for all you get

I used this to: 90% of all Joomla sites I builder per year for my clients on marketing and e-commerce

Functionality

Much more fonctionnalities than I need for my 5 pages web site.

Ease of use

Since I'm not SEO competent, I just can say that SEO isn't as magic as I would like, nevertheless I managed to get some results without rtfm

Value for money

Not expensive at all for the big job it does. As in my case the extension does not match my needs I had been refunded just on demand. Cool.


Functionality

The component functions as promised but I needed some help with the configuration.

Ease of use

If you like the settings as they are its good to go out of the box. Can be a bit to learn, though if you need to make modifications.

Support

Top Notch! They are quick and courteous. Quite helpful!

Documentation

I didn't see any. Doesn't mean there isn't any - I just didn't see any when I looked.

Value for money

Very good value, very generous of the developer not to tie it to each domain.

I used this to: Removing the category portion of the url so that we could have direct links to JReviews listings detail pages for use in marketing materials and landing pages.

Still the best

Functionality

This extension is the best for Joomla urls, avoid number id in the Joomla contents

Ease of use

Once you install and activate the rewriting the management is automated. To tweak all the power of the extension you need some efforts

Documentation

Covers many aspects

Value for money

Better urls mean better indexing and also more visibility, so i think well spent money

I used this to: Several websites that i manage for clients

Functionality

Component makes quick work of most all SEO related pieces missing out of the Joomla core. Avoids duplicate content on urls.

Ease of use

Works out the box.... just turn it on and you already have and SEO site

Support

With the move back into the original developers control, the support is once again top notch, and this is the reason I am writing this revie

Value for money

I use this on many sites, and the license covers this, very generous on the part of the developer

I used this to: Used on all my sites for years, since Joomlla 1.0 right through to joomla 3.4.1 today. It takes care of all the basic SEO so easily and quickly. It plays well with multilingual sites. I must have for any site that wants to rank well on searches

Functionality

It works out of the box but has problems generating too much duplicates and conflicting with other extensions installed

Ease of use

Quite easy, but managing the alias table is not so handy

Support

I would prefer a direct contact instead of the forum

Documentation

Good

Value for money

Good


Best choice

Ease of use

Very ease.. options well explained.. tabs

Now sh40ef has got supoport!!! All my problems dissapeared after i send my questions. Before no comment but wasnt the best!

Value for money

Deserves all the money !

I used this to: For a classified ads site with a component that has plugin for sh404ef and with cb - and sh404ef has the plugin for it

Functionality

Once you have set the configuration the way you want it, it will keep working the way you expect. I can't ask for more /better functionality

Ease of use

It's quite easy to use. Just set it up and go.

Support

I haven't had to use the support.

Value for money

It's very cheap for the great job it does

I used this to: I have used SH404Sef for many years, since my first Joomla 1.5 site. It is always reliable, and I can fine-tune the urls to the way I like them. My page rank is doing well. Great job

Functionality

A lot of functionalities, i like very much the meta informations that can be easily specified for links

Ease of use

I should say very easy, the extension to almost all by itself as soon as installed

Support

Good support on the forum of the developer

Documentation

Documentation is well explained and can be understood also by non-tech people like me

Value for money

well paid, i hope it will improve SEO for Google on our site

I used this to: Our company site Bechtle

Functionality

SH404SEF is the best SEO extention for Joomla that we have come across. It does pretty much everything you may need.

Ease of use

SEF is pretty complicated particularly on a large website, but this plugin does a good job of making it as easy as possible.

Support

Quick, reliable

Documentation

Well documented, though a few more inline instructions would be useful to aid working from admin panel.

Value for money

Very good

I used this to: All our Joomla websites.

We have moved!!! Josetta new home is now https://weeblr.com. Please read all about it here: https://weeblr.com/ka. Josetta is a multilingual content manager for Joomla 2.5+ and Joomla 3.x, designed for ease of use, forward compatibility and performance. NEW! Tabbed interface, all translations in one place NEW! backend direct quick access: translation page appearts in popup from anywhere in the backend of your site, for easy and immediate translation! Includes aJoomfish exporter and importer: automatically recover original articles, categories and menu items from Joomla! 1.5.x Joomfish-based sites into native Joomla! 2.5 and 3.x multi-lingual items. Josetta facilitates the translation of existing Joomla content in several languages by one or more translators with little or no knowledge of Joomla. Translators can easily monitor items that have already been translated and those that have not. Without Josetta, administrators must continually copy content items like articles and modules in the Joomla backend and apply the appropriate translations. Josetta hides all this complex work and translators can focus on creating great content. Importantly, Josetta provides a dedicated translation interface on the frontend of your web site so that users do not need to learn how to navigate the Joomla administrative backend and cannot accidentally make changes to sensitive settings. Josetta relies entirely on the native multilingual feature of Joomla and as such does not trap your translated content into its own format or database tables. You can install or remove Josetta from your site at any time, and your site will operate normally with content in all languages working as expected. Thus, you can be confident that your translations will be fully compatible with future Joomla versions. Even if a migration is required, your translations are standard Joomla content items and you will be able to move it to new Joomla versions as they become available. In addition, using purely native Joomla content means that your site will enjoy the fastest display times possible on your server as no additional database queries are required to retrieve your translations. Other translation solutions will increase the number of database queries thus slowing down your site. Key features of Josetta include: List of source language content displayed on front end (articles, menu items, categories, weblinks, newsfeeds, contact, modules of all types) with display filters Translator selects an item and clicks a button to translate to a given language Josetta automatically links translated content to the original language item - perhaps the most difficult task when translating content in the traditional fashion Dedicated translation screen with simple layout Integrated Bing Translator for automatic translation suggestion. Bing translator is the only free-of-charge translation API available. Easy to setup. Just add translators to the global Josetta user group (translate any language) or one or more of the per-language sub-groups Translation statistics
