Overview

Category URL SEO FREE

After receiving lots of helpful feedback from users, we've fully updated Category URL SEO FREE to address the following issues:
  1. FIXED - Issue where after reindex, unnecessary URL rewrites were created
  2. FIXED - Issue where Magento thinks products are duplicates and adds a number to the end of each URL (ex. shoe1, shoe2, shoe3)

Take full control of your Magento store's category URL structure and improve your search engine rankings with Category URL SEO FREE from Activo Extensions. This free Magento extension flattens your store's URL structure so Google and other search engine spiders can better index your site content.

Excellent extension! A small problem ("Reindex Data i'm receiving the following error ") but solved The install itself went fine however when i go to system > index management > Catalog URL Rewrites > Reindex Data i'm receiving the following error - An error occurred while saving the URL rewrite. Solved quickly by deleting the core_url_rewrite mysql table and System > index management > Catalog URL Rewrites > Reindex Data. Thank you for this great extension! July 21, 2013
Working Brilliantly Now ! Continuing with my previous review i have now got this wonderful extension working. I have no idea why but it just worked this time round, perhaps it was just incompatible with 1.7.0 (i'm now on 1.7.2). Anyway the extension now works flawlessly and is a true asset to any magento store. My category url paths are now much shorter and easy for google to understand. This is a must have for seo and will surely give a little ranking boost. Thanks ! July 19, 2013
Beautiful We wrestled with this issue for SOOOOOOOO LONG; Contacted our Theme Developer (Commative) and some programmers, NO ONE had an easy Solution. This is a GODSEND! Details: I did need to restart my the "container" in PowerPanel to access the backend Magento options under Configuration Re-index Data under Index Management in order to see the effects of the extension July 16, 2013
Works as promised Installed on Magento 1.6.2 and after reindexing worked as promised. April 10, 2013
Does what it should This is just what I was looking for and it works perfectly on 1.0.7.2 Thanks! April 9, 2013
Not working, breaks url rewrites Hello, I installed this extension through magento connect following the instructions to the book. The install itself went fine however when i go to system > index management > Catalog URL Rewrites > Reindex Data i'm receiving the following error - An error occurred while saving the URL rewrite. I would love to use this extension as it would most certainly improve magento's poor seo category structure but the above error is preventing me from doing so. If this is error is corrected im certain this would be a 5 star extension. April 8, 2013
perfect! I love this extension! It's greate! It works on magento 1.7.0.2 very well. It made my category url struct simple and concise, and It provide the ability to add url path prefix such as cat/ for my category url, for example: top level category: old url: http://test.com/my-category new url: http://test.com/cat/my-category second level: old url: http://test.com/my-category/my-second new url: http://test.com/cat/my-second March 7, 2013
Works perfect to me on Magento 1.5.1. We defenatly see improovement ! November 6, 2012
Thank you for this extension. Just wanted to write a quick review dealing with with this company. Their staff is extremely knowledgeable, great with helping out even on a free extension. If anyone is looking for professional work done with their site, I would definitely look into using activio to reduce any headaches. From a long history of communicating with developers you can tell ones that know what they're talking about. These guys know efficiency. Thanks, Ara July 30, 2012
im still seeing www.mysite.com/product1.html instead of www.mysite.com/cat1/product1.html Reindexed and cache is disabled, did not resolve. May 19, 2012

Answer: 
So, the extension actually does not change any product URLs. It will change your category URLs though and create redirects for it (internal mechanism for Magento creates it).

FREE TIP: we highly recommend that you set "Use Categories Path for Product URLs" to NO.
