EFSEO - Easy Frontend SEO

EFSEO is a SEO extension for Joomla! with which you can control all important metadata manually and automatically. The handling of the metadata in Joomla! has never been so easy!

With the plugin you may change and add meta information (title, description, keywords, generator and robots) easily in the frontend and with the component in the backend. It does not matter which component you use. The plugin is active on every page of a Joomla! website and may be used correspondingly.

The entered data can be stored directly in the core tables. The tables for the articles and menu entries are supported. The saved data is indepedent of the URL structure and the plugin itself. The metadata remain available if you change the URL structure and even if you uninstall the extension.

In the Automatic mode the metadata of specified extensions are generated automatically from the data of the loaded page or in general from the plugin settings! The great advantage of EFSEO, compared with other extensions that also automatically generate metadata, is the direct influence on the generated metadata. You can manipulate and store it in the frontend. This gives the user the greatest possible freedom! In addition the loading process is quicker because the same data must not be recalculated on every page load.

See project page for expert tips and operating instructions. With all features EFSEO is definitely one of the best SEO extensions for Joomla!.


* Alter meta information at the frontend - set access through user groups and user IDs
* Automatic Mode - Metadata are generated for certain extensions or via the global settings completely automatic

* Save entered data directly into the core tables (content and menu)
* Define a global title, generator and robots attribute

I use this extension in my joomla 2.5 site. I really was impressed with functionality and usability! I like the way to put descriptions directly on the frontend with popup or panel. Everything is perfect, except one issue: after translate in other language, filed data can't be saved. Also I wanted to put Easy Frontend SEO in joomla 3 site, but unfortunately it still only for testing purposes. So, I waiting for stable release!

Thank Viktor for this great work, and share with us!

This extensions works very good. I am able to edit all, really all, metadata of my complete website.

The big disadvantage is that the database table of this extensions grows very fast. Now my table has a size of about 125 MiB! I am using this extenion in combination of virtuemart. To compage: the products language table just has a size of 400 KiB,
Owner's reply

Thank you for your review.

The size of the EFSEO database table always depends on the size of the website (pages). For example: 150 entries only need 64 KiB!

It is unfair to deduct a star in the rating because your site is so big...

You should deactivate the option "Collect URLs" and add the needed pages manually!

I've just managed to install, setup and use this extension for what I wanted in 15 minutes. I spent 45 minutes searching a solution to allow me to edit the meta data for certain component pages (the answer - you can't!). This extension solved my problem and has blown me away in the process - I can't believe how simple this is when it's so complicated to achieve within components own config area. I agree with other reviewers that the ability to edit the h1 tags on a page would be the cherry on top of the cake.

I´ve been trying this extension for a few days and i find it extremelly usefull, time saving and really helpfull, i just love the front end feature, just a recomendation for maybe later versions, maybe adding a feature so you are able to put some words you want of title, metas, or description in html tags like "bold" or spetially "strong" tag, that will be IMHO a more powerfull SEO extension, Thanks Viktor for your hard work and for share this extension with us.

I have always taken SEO work seriously and have tried many tools to make it an efficient and easy job.

I first used the paid version of AceSEF, It was cumbersome. Later I switched to SmartSEO - a huge mistake, I lost hours and hours of SEO work with that buggy extension.

I have now been using EFSEO for two months. NOT A SINGLE PROBLEM. It is easy and works PERFECTLY.

The fact that is saves the SEO information to the core database is key to its value and function, the other extensions that I used did not and that was a large part of their downfall.

Would it be possible to add H1 editing to EFSEO as well?

My only complaint is that I wish the developer had a support option that was instance (3-5) limited instead of time limited. I would like to send some money for future support but do not expect to use it in the next 31 days before it would expire.

Hello John,

thank you very much for your review!

I will soon release a great free update for EFSEO:

- Backend component to edit the entries directly
- Use relative URLs to identify the entries - independent of domain changes
- Collect URLs automatically for the backend component

Then EFSEO will be even better than it is already! ;-)

Please contact me via the contact form with more details for the H1 editing feature.

Thank you for your suggestion. Yes, I also plan to change the subscription packages, so I will think about the lifetime subscription!

I saw kubik site with a lot of free plugins and i said what the hell why not to try some off them, i cant say yet for the rest of the plugins and modules but this one is doing what it supposed to do 100% ,easy to install and to set up.
Kubik i cant call him friendly (maybe too many hours online helping idiots like me)but he supports his scripts fast and all these for free.
I wish they were more Kubiks in Joomla, they make our life easier cheaper and more interesting.
Thank you for the this script.

I just wanted to stop in and say THANK YOU for the most excellent experience that I am having with this product, now that I have surpassed certain technological challenges that were simply due to my lack of certain terminology and concepts.

After some initial frustrating days, I signed up for the 31 day VIP tech support service, and the author has taken great care to answer all my questions with details and enlighten me in areas where I needed it.

I must say, I have NEVER been in such easy and clear control of my meta data, on quite a complex and multi-language site, and I feel extremely at ease (and relieved!) working with this.

Thank you again!

EFSEO is the best SEO plugin that I have used so far. It's really great and easy to use. I can not believe that such a high quality extension is absolutely free!

I had a small problem but received fast support, even in the free section of the forum.

Conclusion: Great extension to boost your website and fast support. What do you want more?

Thank you very much to the developer and I am going to donate a reasonable amount now!

I have a large tourism website that uses many Joomla components, some of which do not have flexibility when it comes to making the metatag data separate from the front-end display. This plugin saved the day with respect to totally solving that problem. Good search engine optimization is critical to the success of my site, so having the ability to update the complete set of metatags quickly is a huge plus! I love Easy Frontend SEO and also use this developer's other excellent SEO product, SEO Friendly Links and Images.

It's really that easy! I have previously entered the metadata cumbersome and often even completely forgot it. Until I came across this plugin. Unbelievable that this brilliant plugin is free!

I really like the automatic mode. So I don't have to enter any metadata into my articles, the plugin does it automatically. The best thing is that I can control and change them directly in the frontend. Just great!

I thank the developer and hope that EFSEO will be further developed for a long time!
Owner's reply

Of course it will! :-)
