SEO-Generator Plugin

This native Joomla 1.5 - 3.0 plugin automatically generates keywords and description for each article by pulling text from the title and/or the content to help with SEO. It also gives you the ability to set different title configurations, robots meta tags and google webmaster verification keys. Joomla provides a great system for including metadata keywords and description on articles. When editing an article there is a spot on the right hand side of the page to edit the keywords and description (it’s under “Metadata Information”). This information is used to provide the tags for the page and to connect pages using the standard Related Articles module that comes with Joomla. But what if you don’t want to have to think up and type in keywords and description every time? Wouldn’t it be nice if the related articles plugin could just always work on the full text of the articles? That’s what this plugin solves.

Whenever you create or save an article in Frontend or Backend, this plugin automatically fills in the keywords and description for you.
It does this for the keywords by:
1. Parsing all the words in the article and ordering them by number of times used (you can choose to generate keywords from title, content or both)
2. Removes the most common words in your language from the list by comparing it against a blacklist
3. Adds the top words into the keywords section (Limit keywords by length or number)

After saving the article you can also make some changes and any words you add to the keyword or description section will not be overwritten when you save. But what is with that many old articles without keywords? This version adds the ability to regenerate keywords for all articles in the database. Simply set the option to “Yes”, reload "Frontpage" and set it back to “No.” All articles in the database will now have keywords. You can save, delete or change the keywords for all articles by changing the options "Regenerate All Keywords and save it" and "Minimum Word Length" or the "Keywords-Blacklist". If you are not using "save by writing" then the description and keywords aren't saved in the article but the searchengine can get it from the sourcetext, because they are generated "on the fly".. The Keywords-Blacklist is german but you can change this in backend. You can find an link to an english Keywords-Blacklist on the Download-Page.

On these websites you can see how it works:

http://www.suchmaschinen-optimierung-seo.org/

Thats not all here some other options:
* HTML page title configuration. Set your page titles in three different ways
* You can also customize what the separator is (in this ex. it's a pipe, can be any character).
* Additionally, you can customize the front page of your site's title tag to display a custom string.
* You can have one of four different layouts

This plugin does exactly what they say. I think it's important to have in a website for SEO if you don't want to have the trouble to write every meta tag by hand.

It does one important thing that is adding the robots in your code for each page.

Thanks for this plugin, worth the money spent

I bought this plugin a couple of years ago and love what it does for my seo. I've had several questions over this time and Matthias has been very fast in answering and has always sorted the problem out (which was me both times). I can't recommend highly enough!

SEO generator is a good generator, BUT...

Enable it only when you're writing and publishing articles. If not, disable it in the plugin area.
It terribly slows down your website.
Small webpages won't notice this problem, bigger ones do with 8 or more large articles.

Still, I can recommend it. It's a good generator.

I installed the plugin on Joomla 3.1.5 and it works like a charm.
Only a little problem I faced and the support was excellent.

For people who will install it on Arabic websites. notice that the Blacklist accepts only English comma (,). Do not use Arabic comma (،) to separate words, or it will not work.

Yesterday I bought this plugin also after a very positive experience in the past. I forgot actually how it worked again and after a short email exchange with Mathias it was back rolling again.
This plugin makes your life completely easier. It saves a lot off work and yet so simple but so nice.

Mathias thank you again for the support and I wish you good business and keep up the good work!

I downloaded and installed ther SEO Generator plugin. It works well and was easy to setup. It saved me a lot of time!

The only shortcoming is that it does not include the ability to create and fill in the Meta Description. It would be very nice to have that ability.

I absolutely love this plugin, I'm trying to get the company I work for to switch to it from iJoomlaSEO.

I'm having one problem with it though, It's not working on a single page template from hotthemes. I simply can't click the box in the upper right hand corner to open the dialogue box to SEO my pages.

This plugin is really a timesaver. It generates all the neccesary meta tags on the fly and that even with a component like JReviews. TOP!

This component saves a lot of user training, entry management, duplication error finding ALL ROUND perfect solution. Using it on J 2.5 with K2 and it's absolutely perfect! If you are looking for an extension that works with K2 to auto generated meta keywords and descriptions then look no further. THIS IS FOR YOU!

This is my first review on the Extensions site and I went through the trouble of signing up just because I wanted to leave a review for SEO-Generator. It's awesome! I had been looking for a good SEO Keyword generator and was not finding one that did just what this one advertised. After installing, I went back to remove the default keywords I had painstakingly started entering, and I was shocked go back to the articles a second later and find great keywords already saved. Thanks!

This is my first time ever review on this board. But since the SOE Generator Plugin works like a charm, credits must be given to developer.

In order two further enhance the plugin Id like to suggest the following two additions:
1) Option (maybe by using a tag) to add the page title in front of the description.
2) Multilingual support. Currently not a big issue since my site is just one language. But as soon as you want to deploy a multilingual site become difficult in terms of maintaining a separate blacklist for each language. The language tag in Joomla would be an aid to determine which blacklist should be used when generating the keywords.

Maybe planned for v4.7?

We all know how crucial SEO is but adding keywords to every new article, no matter how small, can be very time-consuming and often overlooked. This extension does everything you want automatically - you need never worry about adding keywords again. You can specifiy static keywords to be included in every article and specify those that should never be added. Simples!
