We’re considering this solution but have to make sure we are getting what we want in terms of SEO functionality…

Are we able to change title tags? Global?  Per Page?

Any limitations on metadata? Can we admin metadata at the page level without a programmer?

URLs – it says are customizable – what does that mean?  We will need search friendly URL’s – www.mystore/widgets and www.mystore/gadgets would be examples.  Can we do this for all pages within the site?

Optimized breadcrumbs…. It looks like there are breadcrumbs…can they be customized?

Are there adminable alt tags for all pages?  Can we control the alt tags based on the HTML we are building out – or is the HTML not adminable at that level?

Text based links vs. Image based links throughout the site – how is this coded?

Optimized sitemap will be needed for the site.  Can the sitemap be customized?

How much of internal linking is customizable?  We would like to have optimized internal links.

Hi all!
Magento is really not ideal from the point of view of SEO.  Very many obvious functions are implemented not quite right.  As a variant, you can try the ready extensions. For example, I use this one http://mirasvit.com/magento-extensions/advanced-seo-suite.html and very satisfied with results. There are a lot of similar extensions.
