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

This free Magento extension flattens your store's URL structure so Google and other search engine spiders can better index your site content.

Great product Easy to install and have found an uplift in page views since our dev team installed this. Worth a try November 17, 2014
Essential extension for any large Magento store This is a very useful extension that is simple to use. The support offered by the developer is world class too. Very quick and educated responses. September 9, 2014
Not working with multi store Works like described, but not in multi store Magentos. If you select "Yes" in any scope, all scopes work with module activated. I need one scope with the module activated and other deactivated. Any suggestion? August 11, 2014
Stay away The installation was easy, but I wish it hadn't been. After installing this extension it randomly adds a number to the end of the URL of all products and categories by creating hundreds of thousands of url rewrites. You end up with duplicate content on the same scale as before you use this solution, but there is no easy way to mass-delete all of the rewrites that were created. June 17, 2014
Nightmare! Well the idea behind this extension is great. What so ever the extension isnt great at all. If you use several categories for one product, for each categorie this extension creates an extra url with a number. google recognize these urls as double content. May 13, 2014
it dident work for me It dident work for me dont know why realy.. BUT the strange thing is that it made my site load alot faster then before somehow so! 5++ May 10, 2014
DO NOT INSTALL This product does what it says it will do, which is flatten your categories and even perform a re-index to 301 the previous URLs to the new ones. Unfortunately, if you are using this for SEO purposes, it will do much more harm than it will good. Something I noticed after installing this product is that every time I performed a reindex for the URL rewrites, it would result in hundreds of additional rewrites in the URL Rewrite Management, which was approximately 1 for every product in my store. What will also happen is any additional product you add will have a number apprehended to the end of the URL. For example: www.store.com/PRODUCT-###.html You cannot add a product to the store without a number being assigned, and every time you reindex your site, the number and URL will change! This is a much bigger SEO nightmare than the default categories! After uninstalling this product, I had to delete thousands of rewrites, but the store is functioning correctly again. April 3, 2014
Great idea, works and easy install... 5 STARS! Great idea. Should work for SEO. Works as described. Just flush the cache, re-index everything, log out an log back in. Thank you! PS Can't beat that price December 5, 2013
and what about sitemap.xml your module works fine with my 1.7.0.2 but just after i verify a new generated sitemap.xml and categories structures are with long way. i don't think it is very SEO friendly. can you explain if it is important or not to have same structure in front and in sitemap.xml? I'm not expert but i think both must be similar? August 5, 2013
Worked Straight away Great module, I have been looking for something like this for a long time - thanks!!! July 25, 2013

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.
