A must have extension for e-commerce!
This extension makes my site feel like it can compete with top end e-commerce sites. In addition, I purchased this extension over 6 months ago and recently ran into some problems with my specific configuration and the Gomage team sorted it out very quickly and free of charge even though I was outside the free support time frame.

Disappointed, but an improvement on standard layered navigation
If all you want is a better looking, and faster navigation, then go ahead and use this extension - this is what is does.
what it does not do is this - "SEO optimization: Preventing Google from indexing the pages!"
You have to disallow everything, including ajax in robots.txt. You can achieve the same with layered navigation - just disallow everything in robots.txt! or switch it off altogether. To make the gomage extension work correctly you have to set up robots as if layered navigation was switched off altogether.
So what you are buying is a tool that gives you more choices of colour/presentation, a slicker interface to the user, but you get no SEO benefit whatsoever.
So while it is a big improvement on the standard layered navigation, we bought it to to not 'lose juice' and for SEO purposes. Had we known what we know now, we could have achieved the same for free.
If you read this article http://inchoo.net/online-marketing/magento-seo-how-to-handle-problems-caused-by-layered-navigation/ then the gomage extension will not achieve what people in the discussion are trying to achieve.
A final thought. Be aware that for ajax to work at all you cannot have category pages with just static block, you need to be showing products or products and static block. It reverts to normal layered navigation for that page. This was a headache for us with our main category pages where we didn't want to show products.
NB the whole point of having ajax is to either hide or show all the attributes from the URL. At the moment - you must hide them.

THE BEST "SHOP BY" for magento
***** PLEASE READ *******
This is the best shop by in magento! I have tried three (3) different modules and nothing compares to advanced navigation by GOMAGE. We needed some custom styles done and they were able to implement them right away!

Fantasitc support, & great extension!
The advance nagivation by GoMage is a pretty solid extension add on for magento store's. It works seamlessly with site category and subcategory contents. The ability to customize according to users color scheme, and easy managable backend settings is also a plus.
Although there's still room for improvement, particulary for featured category sections, nonetheless it is a great asset to have for ones webstore.
Customer support staff is highly motivated to satisfy and deliver quality customer experience. I truly respect and honor them for that.

Bought this extension a couple of months ago and had to make some adjustments. The online chat option was very helpful and the service gomage provides is outstanding
