Value for money
Saved me loads of time in relation to redirects - for me the extension provided excellent value for money
I used this to: I completely redesigned a real estate website which had a vast amount of duplicate content. Having transferred the property listings to the new site sh404sef helped with the required redirects and eliminated as far as possible the duplicate content issue.
Owner's reply: Hi there,

Thanks very much for your kind comments! Good to see sh404SEF helped you with redirects among other things. I just wanted to mention that we have kept working on that. Next version, due within a week or so, will have a vastly expanded redirects feature, with wildcards and such. Should prevent having to use .htaccess in most cases.

Cheers

Relative ease to use once you get the basic understanding of what's going on under the hood of the extension and Joomla

Die Componente funktioniert einwandfrei. Leider ist K2 Funktionalität nicht mehr implementiert und als seperates Plugin zu erwerben

in Deutscher Sprache wäre die Componente um einiges benutzerfreiundlicher. Sonst gibt es aber nichts auszusetzen.
