The Best Joomla SEF Component is sh404SEF
I know, that's a bold statement to make.
But I have tried every one of them and will write a review on each of them separately.
So watch out for those comparisons!
I had a short list of the things that could make Joomla more of a Content Management System's that work with Search Engine Friendly URLs.
– Standard Joomla SEO settings (Always get this working FIRST)
– Sef-Advanced ( 40 Euro Commercial license)
– sh404Sef (Newly picked up by another developer (now 44 $ Per Year for Support and Download)
– RemoSef (From the developer of Remository)
– OpenSef (Developer of OpenSef, OpenWP and OpenWiki- No new developments, only Joomla 1.0.x)
As I stated before, I have tried the all.
And I am running then all on different websites!
Why I think sh404SEF is the Best?
The sites I run with sh404SEF have got the best and fastest rankings on the keywords I optimized them on.
It is a great asset if you are working on Joomla SEO
The rewriting of the Content to a SEF URL is fast, really fast.
I can make my own SEF URLs if the ones I see i don't like :-)
It is stable and that's a BIG Plus.
It doesn't rely on other programs on the server or components other than a .htaccess file and Joomla SEF running (which all of the third party SEF components want you to do first).
You don't have to hack into core files or other files.
And last: sh404SEF Installation is a breeze and the support fast and good!
