First of all I'm writing this in a slightly annoyed state.

I'm usually pretty impressed with RSJoomla - I've used various components for literally years.

I have used RSSeo a couple of years back and as I recall it was simple and it worked.

This time around on a Joomla 3 site and it's so full of bugs it's hideous. Non saving of data and mystery pages appearing out of nowhere.

As an example I tested it on a new install of Joomla with just 2 pages. But it tells me 6 pages use the same meta description.

RS Joomla used to set the standard - but I think the standard has moved over the last 2 to 3 years and maybe they've been stood still.

It's a shame you didn't ask for our help - I did check our ticketing system for your username and found just three tickets sent in the past year, none of them related to RSSeo!. We would have loved to help (that's the whole purpose of our customer support team), but you never mentioned any issues.
The "bugs" you are talking about are not bugs in RSSeo! coding, but inconsistencies caused by several factors of your Joomla! installation (other extensions changing metadata, redirecting to other pages) or your hosting server (wrong headers, security filters preventing connection to the server etc). These things cannot be determined unless somebody manually debugs your installation.

Anyway, thank you for your compliments, but I can assure you that no extension is neglected nor are we standing still - we've constantly released updates, new extensions and even templates!.

Let me start this with saying I've been very pleased with other RSJoomla plugins. But this deserves special attention.

I have a handful of problems, I will address them in direct relationship to the features as they are currently promoted.

Competitors:
* Monitor and compare the SEO performances of your competitors against yours
* Compare them using compare.com
* Check the page rank, google, yahoo and bing backlinks and the number of indexed pages

A convenience only in that it reports your site's Alexa rank, but simply go to alexa get it for free along with a lot more useful metrics. Search "google backlink checker" and you can find the other values. There are no Yahoo backlinks displayed. The Bing Pages and Bing Backlinks report null values currently. Essentially worthless.

Website Pages:
* Index all your website pages
* Each page gets a grade based on its SEO performance
* Follow the simple instructions to optimize each and every page and make it SEO perfect
* Set up Unique title for each page, unique description and set up keywords

Useful when it works. Easy to edit meta data and provides basic guideline/suggestions. Such as "Add alt tags to your images" and "Your title text is too long" --- Basic stuff. The most painful part of this process however is for some reason it display pages that no longer exist from an OLD version of the website. These pages no longer exist on the server, nor were they even build using Joomla. Stuff from years ago that I can only assume is being reported by old search engine links. Turning a few hundred page actual website into slogging through almost 10,000 old links. Most being odd links like RSS feeds, or odd search pages, or components... When I display "ALL" Firefox about chokes on all the links RSSeo is trying to display and it becomes unusable.

Redirects:
* Set up permanent or temporary redirects for the old links

Yes. It will do this. You manually enter the full URL for any old page and manually enter the URL for the new page on your website to redirect too. An option to select a page from current website would go a long way versus manually entering each URL. If you are needing to re-direct a lot of links, you will have a bad time.

Sitemap:
* Generate the complete Google and Yahoo! Sitemap for ALL your website!

Yes. Nothing fancy here. Already have a plugin that does this free.

Crawler:
* Crawl all your website to index all the web pages
* Set up links that you want to ignore from crawling(ideal for user profiles, etc..)
* Set up automatic crawler to index new found pages when these are visited

This starts, scans 3 pages, quits and reports nothing.

Keywords:
* Monitor your Google position for the keywords that are important to your business
* Automatically bold, underline or assign links to keywords when they are found in the front-end

See no reference to google position of keywords in this option. I literally am trying right now to add a keyword to "automatically bold/link" etc. It doesn't appear to effect any of the keywords on my site.

Integration with Google Analytics
* Traffic sources report
* Visitors report
* Content report

This is the kicker. After configuring the Google API to allow RSSeo to query the Google Analytics, my website got blocked by Google from using the GAPI system. My hosting company says its a problem with the plug-in. Not everyone has this issue, but assuming this forum thread on the RSJoomla site doesn't get taken down because of this review, there are hundreds of websites that now suffer from this problem with absolutely ZERO explanation from RSJoomla as to why:


Google "403 error RSSeo" for more.

Thankfully I paid during a 50% off sale, otherwise I'd be really peeved. This plugin needs some serious fixing.

Also, the documentation is out of date. For instance, their instructions for configuring the Google API references doesn't use their current interface.
Owner's reply

This is actually quite a lengthy and thorough review. I'm going to address some critical points:
* Competitors
This is an overall screen where you can compare how your competitors are ranking, no need to clutter it with other information. Yes, you can grab that information from Alexa and we actually encourage you to do that - but that's only when you're inspecting a single competitor. Yahoo! does not allow you to grab the backlinks - it worked before, but we had to remove it when they did (they transitioned to Bing Webmaster Tools, check their announcement). On another note, all of the features are working well: http://rsjoom.la/images/jed/rsseo-competitors.png
* Website Pages:
Viewing 10.000 pages at once in any browser or extension is going to be a cumbersome experience - that's understandable as your browser will eat up too much resources. That's why there's a pagination in place.
All of the pages reported by RSSeo! are there, trust me. They're either being linked somewhere in your website or if you have the Auto Crawler feature enabled, they can come from visitors following outdated links.

* Sitemap
Our sitemap, unlike the free plugin you hint at, does not require any additional plugins per component. It catches ALL of your website's pages out of the box. That's a unique feature nobody else has.

* Redirects
Thank you for your feedback, I do agree there's room for improvement. In my opinion, if you have that many redirects to handle, it's better to create a .htaccess rule - the performance will be miles away from a pure PHP + SQL solution and will be easier to implement (knowledge assumed, but you can find lots of step by step tutorials).

* Crawler
Seems to be like you should have contacted us if this failed to find all the pages on your website.

* Keywords
The keywords you add will not be modified on your pages unless you enable "Keyword Replacement" in the RSSeo! configuration.

* Integration with Google Analytics
I can assure you that just by querying the Google API will not get your hosting IP blocked. I'm sure that, as it is the case with 90% of our customers, you're on a shared hosting (basically multiple websites sharing the same server IP) and there's a chance the IP was already blocked (being caused by somebody else). I do agree that there are lots of reports of Google blocking the hosting server IP, but just search for that without mentioning RSSeo! - you'll notice many more results. People don't know this until they try to use RSSeo!, which relies on some connections to Google's website - and chances are they're already blocked.

* Documentation
We constantly improve our documentation (and there's lots of it). This process has been improved in the past months (with the addition of new team members) but occasionally there might be an article we miss.

I'm using RSSEO for one month and I'm loving it. I wonder why I haven't given it a try earlier! Very useful tool for Joomla seo.

If it had a way to insert meta data in front-end, I believe it would me much more helpful.

I'm using RSSeo and RSFirewall on all my sites!

RSSEo with crawler and site map functionality have definitely helped my sites performance and page ranking.

Additionally RSJoomla has fantastic support, if you have a conflict (which is not their problem in the first place), they will help you until everything is playing nice together!

Honestly I can't live without this component, as well as RSFirewall.

I completely trust this developer and would recommend anything they develop - their code and support is top-notch!

This software would get an excellent rating, if it weren't for the price tag.
I don't agree with the previous reviewer. It does SEO, and it does it well. But it does assume you have some understanding about basic SEO (the way keywords, descriptions etc work). Better yet, it gives you a real quick glance of all your pages and exactly which page is optimized to which level, including which actions should be taken to improve the page in the details, and easy redirects for duplicate content. Great stuff!
However, the price is too high. The basic SEO features are great, but to justify this price it would have to be a whole lot more sophisticated. I would seriously encourage the developers to try a low-priced high volume approach, or a non-commercial basic and commercial expanded version.
Might buy it again if I get more serious clients.

I had been a fan of RSfirewall, another product of RSjoomla. So I purchased this extension RSSEO.

The product is OK. It helps to create a sitemap very easily. It shows page ranking/autocrawls the website but nothing specific is done for SEO or keyword ranking improvement. I could not find the help easily.

Though support is good but I did not like the extension much as it does not show how to improve the page ranking and SEO in various pages. The developers must work more on this extension to bring it parallel to their other products

I bought this extension in order to enable the process of good SEO on a new website easier to manage. It may do that, right now I'm not sure because support on this extension is so poor. I have asked explicit questions on this and even copied and pasted notices that I received from Joomla during certain processes of RSSEO. When I posted a support question, that question was literally completely ignored and I was given an answer that had nothing to do with my issue.

Finding and using quailty Joomla extensions is a great thing and I have found a few of those, but coming upon extensions that "may" be good but the developers offer terrible support just makes work harder and I don't think we need to pay to make our work harder for us.

That's why I'm giving RSSEO a fairly negative score. The product may be ok, but the support is not and that is just as critical a component as the extension itself in my opinion.

I have been using RSJoomla products for along time and just started using this. I have been doing SEO since 1998 and have seen a lot of online and offline seo software. RSSEO is the easiest and best SEO component for Joomla. I am not affiliated at all with RSJoomla and this is very honest testimonial.

Having just installed RSSEO!, I did notice that one of the installation settings, did create a fairly annoying formatting issue on my website. It was solved in no time through RSJoomla support system. Keep up the good work in terms of support responsiveness

Not only does this work (like all RS products) their support is fantastic!

RSseo holds your hand and guides you through the seo process. My Google ranking has increased dramatically, and I haven't worked that hard at it.

Thanks guys!

I paid for another SEO software called: Smart SEO - DO NOT USE IT. I was ripped off. Very unfair. The support was useless, the forums were not being replied to by the owner and no-one cared.

Not with RS SEO. What a fantastic bit of kit, a proper support forum and helpful people who "care" about the development of the soltuions they sell.

I want to thank you guys for really helping me develop my sites and help me understand SEO all over again.. hehe. No-one can ever know everything... but thankfully you guys can and do.

Thank you for a superb component. I also really like the ability to check Google Analytics whilst developing a site. Very Clever! :-)

Not being an SEO person I thought this looks a worthy purchase after buying 2 other RSJoomla products within a matter of days.
The jury is still out on the whether it will do something for our new site but if it is as good as their Firewall and Events modules then I am a RSJoomla product fan.

I would give this extension an extra star if I could. Wow, did it improve my search engine ranking and I haven't even optimized half my pages yet. I went from not being able to find myself anywhere in any search engine to being on page five of the top three search engines!
This extension lets you individually write all the info for each page. When the extension pulled up my pages for the first time, it was no wonder why I was no where to be found in the search engines. Every page description was exactly the same. Joomla simply adds your main meta description to every page. The title pages were just as blah.
I am able to optimize EVERY page with this extension. It takes time to optimize every page but the effort is well worth it especially since I have an ecommerce site.
I had no issues with installation and no bugs as of yet. I also use their Firewall and it is top of the line as well. This company sells quality products. Thanks!

Just wanted to say that both RSEvents and RSSeo work very well with my website. RSSeo has helped me find out things that were lacking seo wise on my Joomla! website and how to solve them. It beats any other SEF extension when it comes to page management. Definitely recommend.

RSSEO comes with thorough documentation that makes installation and configuration a quick and easy task. That also makes the job of educating and supporting our clients easy too.

Most importantly the component does what it says on the tin, we are in the process of applying it to all our clients' sites.

When we have had a query, the support offered has been timely, professional, courteous and complete - I recommend this component and RSJoomla to anybody running a professional website.

I found that the standard setup in Joomla was not very SEO friendly. After searching through the SEO extensions I came across this RSSEO. I purchased RSForm Pro and got this extension 75% off (follow their twitter account - lots of discount codes). I have found it easy to make all my articles, pages and forms SEO friendly and have really seen an increase in my google search response. I need to do a lot more work in RSSEO than some other products but this one is by far the most flexible when it comes to customising what you want. I have used this product on a commercial investing site and it has really helped to out-pace the competition. Well done RSJoomla! I will continue to purchase off you!

i thought this component could do something for a better optimization of joomla with search engines.

well you could install a free firefox component to get a better view of your stat's trend.

this component doesn't anything complex or even interesting.

for the sitemap, well use xmap
