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:
http://www.site.com/category/subcategory/article/

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.

Value for money

While the functionality is great, support is poor - and that's what you're supposed to be paying for..

100
Functionality

I'm using this extension since Joomla 1.0 and i'm an old expert user of Joomla. I must admit it's the best extension for Joomla SEF links

100
Ease of use

Extremely easy to use, i tried a lot of competitors and experimented a lot of issues and troubles

Perfect in every part

100
Value for money

Money well invested

I used this to: Company website
90
Functionality

Pure-logic technology makes it the most performant SEF component, howeaver there aren't many other extra features with which you can tweak.

100
Ease of use

The use is immediate, in 30 seconds you have configured all the component.

70
Support

The support is not immediate but meet the majorty of the needs of the customer.

70
Documentation

The internal documentation to the component is sufficient to understand how it works. If you are a developer the docs could be improved.

60
Value for money

In my opinion, compared to the competition the price is high, but with pure-logic technology it is not an obstacle to the purchase.

I used this to: I needed a component that would manage a portal of 200,000 monthly visits. Competitive products created a bottleneck on performance, so I tried SEF Advance and is phenomenal in this. There is some defects in some functionalities, but I am sure that will be fiexd in the future.

Sef Advance is always my first pick when talking SEF extensions. Great work, very well

written and thought through. You can clearly see that this is an extension with a lot of work

and history behind. And if i am not mistaken, it was one of first SEF extensions for Joomla

Brilliant!

This is my first review and only because the extension is so good. I was un-nerved by the fact it had no reviews but after a leap of faith, I will be upgrading all my Virtuemart sites to SEF Advance.



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.

Owner's reply: 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.

myself and the company i work for have sef advance on many joomla sites, and it works a charm. this is the better way to produce sef urls, because it doesn't save every url in database. the url's are produced on the fly. it's more lightweight and doesn't bog the joomla site down. every time we have an issue (which isn't very much), emir is right on top of it giving answers and solutions. i highly recommend sef advance.
