Magento Connect 2.0
Magento Connect 2.0
If your store has a complex categories structure with many levels of subcategories, Magento will create really long URLs for the products in these subcategories, including the full categories hierarchy in the URL.
This can be a real drag for your product SEO since Google usually pays attention only to first few words in the URL.
Our FREE SEO Friendly Categories Magento extension by Activo allows you to flatten your URL structure by using only the product name or the last subcategory name in the URL.
So instead of mystore.com/category/subcategory1/product_name.html you will have just mystore.com/product_name.html in your URL.
And likewise for categories, instead of mystore.com/category/subcategory1/subcategory2/subcategory3.html you will have just a mystore.com/subcategory3.html
You can even customize how that subcategory will look in the URL like by using the URL Key parameter in the category configuration.
Our Bulk Images Upload and SEO for Large Catalogs Magento Extension now also includes SEO features and allows to rename imported images using the product title for improved image SEO. Check it out at our page above or on Magento Connect here.
You can use the Magento Connect Manager to install this extension directly from Magento Connect. Alternatively you can download the package from our own site and follow the installation instructions on our page here.
You can also install this extension directly from Magento Connect if you are running Magento 1.5 or newer. In this case the installation process is even easier:
To configure the SEO Friendly Categories Magento extension, please go to the System / Configuration menu at your admin panel click the SEO Friendly Categories under ACTIVO EXTENSIONS section on the left. You will see the configuration menu, which is very simple - you can just enable or disable the short SEO friendly category URLs.
Please note that once you change this setting, you need to go to System / Index Management and reindex data for Catalog URL Rewrites.
One additional benefit: Magento will create the URL redirects from the old category links to the new, short ones, so all old links will still work perfectly fine.
