SEF Advance is a Joomla SEF component which extends its built-in Search Engine Friendly URL fuctionality and raises it on a higher level. Instead of ordinary Joomla URLs which are often strange and inconsistent, you will get human friendly URLs in form of:
Because URLs consist of meaningful keywords rather than numbers, SEF Advance will drasticaly improve your search engine positions.
SEF Advance is the only pure-logic SEF solution, not relying on database for URL storage, resulting in stunning performance. Being developed, improved and supported for over 9 years by a core developer of Joomla! and Mambo, it is the oldest and most reliable Joomla SEF extension available.
Supporting them natively or with free extensions, SEF Advance improves URLs even for many 3rd party components for Joomla.
I have tried the 2 well known extensions and found they were just too complicated to manage on a daily basis. One was creating 000s of unnecessary redirects which Google punished by 50 ranks.
This does exactly what it says on the tin - it builds the URL dynamically so when a VM product name changes, so does the URL. A log is built up of 404s so you don't lose traffic. There is a control panel also that allows you to make adjustments and for me, this is perfect.
Installation wasn't a simple Admin upload but after an email to the developer, it was sorted very quickly.
Thank you! Just to clarify, it has no reviews because it was removed from JED due to its previous license terms. But it used to have tons of reviews as it's the oldest and most reliable SEF extension for Joomla.
