This authors does not provide support at all. If you post something on their forum, you will never get answer from the authors.
This component include black SEO and spammy option called external link. With this option users can rewrite external links and make them internal for saving space for higher PR. And users of this, get wrong, if they do not analyze what they are doing with such rewriting of external links. According to Google Inside Search, menu Fighting Spam, such kind of rewriting link is categorized as Black techniques, and lead to Website to be penalized. So read this on Google Inside Search, Fighting Spam. Further, imagine e-commerce Website I am building just now with over 700 product, and large volume of sales... Imagine that such kind of Website is penalized because of SEO Boss component, how much my client will lost, until problem is solved. I do not have to tell any more, just to inform you to look on JED as they are real SEO Boss component but they are called differently. Best regards to all!

External Links Manager - one of several features provided by SEO Boss component. As any SEO tool you should use it carefully and you should have an idea what you are doing.
External Links Manager is not designed for Page Rank saving( however it could be useful in this aspect)
The main goal of this feature is to hide outgoing links which are not related with the theme of your site. Such links can worsen your site ranking.
If your site users can post contents, they can leave such kind of links and you can hide them using External Links Manager feature.
In any case you can hide redirect page using robots.txt

I found the whole experience of using both versions very good, but the level of support was rather dire. Overall very good product.

The idea of this component is a good idea and now it integrates with parts of Mossets tree etc it is even better.
Problems are: Even know I have paid for the Pro verions, there seems to no support available what so ever, just a forum to post on that never seems to get answered and the forum is highjacked by spammers!
I could not install this on a site that I had previously tested the free version on and I still cant install it as no support is being given to me and my forum posts not being answered.
Other draw back is it does not control all mossets pages as it would suggest it does, only index page and listings are available. Things like the search results that produce duplicate meta content can not be controlled, so I would say it is only part integrated with Mossets and not fully as the sales pitch would suggest.
It is ok for basic SEO control as long as you do not run in to a problem, because if you do it looks like your on your own!

I used a component "SEO Boss basic" earlier. And now i tried to use SEO Boss pro. Frequent updates, support for K2, updates in a single click - it's very convenient.
It save my time for meta data managing.

Thanks for the component!

Best regards!
