Ease of use
Easy to use
Value for money
I did NOT recommend this plugin.
Very easy and complete extension for canonical url management. It works well with other extensions as easyblog or Virtuemart.

The support team is great. Good delay time and detailed explanations.

Thanks for that time saver plugin.

Best Support ever !

Posted on 13 February 2014
I would like to thank the support team of Dev CMSPlugin for the great support they provide.

Response time is beyond my expectations and the detailed explaination about every question I've asked is super professional.

Thank you very much for everything !
I've tried all the others, the free ones don't work because they don't put the canonical URL in the correct format. This one does and it's not expensive. Buy it, install it, activate it and forget about it and let it do it's job. At least someone got it right!

Many thanks for saving me a big bag of time with not having to code the canonicals in by hand.

Same as Joomla core canonical

Posted on 28 November 2013
First of all these component is same as Joomla core canonical, it is adding rel=canonical on every link that you have on site, nothing special specially for SEO.

That is smaller thing, big down for support, they are not responding om emails, it seems like they only wanted to take your money and no answer from them, 'cos there is no any money back guarantee,at least support need to be responsive
Owner's reply: Regarding the Canonical in Joomla core works by bringing the link or url of the current page turned on and create tags. It is just adding rel = "canonical" in every pages that already turn on.

The tag is create from a plugin system - sef which unlike Canonical Extension of CMSPlugin.
Because our system creates a tag canonical by checking through the menu that show as the main content first. Then the Canonical system would know which link should be chosen as the
first one. And the selection is based on a rule of canonical documentation.

And another difference, other components (third party) can be added into the system by the determination rel = "canonical" correctly as well.
