Introduction

MetaData, Administration, Site Management, SEO & Metadata

There is no single SEO trick that is going to make your site rank well on Google, good SEO is a combination of lots of little bits and pieces that go together to make your site appeal to both search engines and your potential customers. This is why we have created BF SEO, a tool that will help you with getting all the basics right on your Joomla website.

The built in SEO capabilities of Joomla 3 are quite good, but it can be a time consuming process getting it all right, for example if you wanted to edit the meta tile and description for your menus, you would need to open up each one individually, go to the Page Display tab to edit the Browser Page Title, then go to the Metadata tab to update the Meta Description, then save and close, and repeat for each menu item. BF SEO can save you heaps of time by giving you all these fields on a single screen, and allow you to quickly update all your meta data in one go.

What you will really love is the fact that it places the data in the core Joomla tables directly and does not hold the data in the extension, so this really is a speedy centralisation of SEO tasks.

You will also enjoy the Joomla config check, the green ticks will show you what you are doing right, and the red crosses will help you learn basic Joomla SEO that may have alluded you in the past, and you will have the satisfaction of seeing those crosses turn to ticks once you've adjusted the settings.

With BF SEO you can:
-Generate Meta Tags automatically (articles). Our software is smarter than most meta generators which just pick the first part of the text, ours actually analyses the keywords used and selects the most appropriate text. Of course you can still manually edit if required.
-Change meta tags (title & description) on single page for menus, articles and categories.
-Support for K2 articles and categories
-Check for duplicate meta data
-Audit your Joomla SEO configuration and recommend changes
-Page Check Tool. Check any internal or external page
-Robots.txt Tool. Check to make sure your site has a Robots.txt file, and create one if needed. Make sure changes since Joomla 3.3 have been applied. Integrated editor so you can make changes as needed.
-.htaccess Tool. Check to make sure your site has a .htaccess file, and create one if needed. View the contents of your .htaccess file
-Sitemap Tool. Check if your site has a sitemap.xml, and create one if needed. Dynamically builds sitemap based on your menu selection.
-Automatic redirects. When you change your menu item alias via BF SEO, it will automatically create entries in com_redirect, so your old URL will point to the new one. No more broken links!

Functionality
We used it for handling the Meta Description of the K2 articles that were duplicated.
Ease of use
It's easy to be used being very well organized in easy to be reached icon-based tabs.
Value for money
It for sure worths the low amount of money that it costs as it allows you to improve the SEO of your Joomla site.
I used this to: Handling K2 articles Meta Descriptions in order to avoid that they are all present and not duplicated.

Brings it altogether

Functionality
Great that it allows you to edit meta data for articles, categories and menus all in the one place.
Ease of use
The component is well thought out and quite intuitive to use.
Support
The few questions I've had have been dealt with very quickly and bug patches are made where issues are identified and new features added.
Documentation
Covers the functionality at a high level but not really needed as mostly the interface is intuitive.
Value for money
License fee is on a fixed month basis - so updates limited to time you have purchased.
I used this to: completing meta tags and as a quick check that the basics have been done right
Functionality
I typically left the Meta data on my new site till last. BF SEO helped me set it up in minimal time.
Ease of use
Very easy. No problems. I am not a professional developer.
Support
It was so well constructed that I had no need for support. Others say that the developer is very prompt.
Documentation
Excellent - Very easy to follow.
Value for money
Low priced. Worthwhile.
I used this to: all my websites. Having all the metadata for all the menus on one page was great - ruled out duplication. Also great was the way it automatically created meta data for the articles. It's configuration check also threw up some things that I wasn't aware of.
