At Creare, we are passionate about both Magento and SEO. With our many years of experience in both fields we have come across many stumbling blocks when it comes to optimising your Magento store for search engines.
Magento is very SEO-ready 'out-of-the-box', which means we have a good foundation to build on top of, but it can certainly be improved in a few areas.
By installing this extension you will enable a list of new tools and settings that can help you combat issues such as duplicate content and unwanted 404 pages. We've also combined a few of our other extensions such as HTML sitemap, and optimised category headings.
