    I work in an SEO-related field and my site is still in the "hobby" stage. I migrated it from another platform to SE PHP and was dumbfounded by how SEO un-friendly the platform is. When people run a search for you in Google, if your site shows up, it will show the generic site description and heading in the search results. Who is going to click on that??? Nobody, unless they're just looking for your site. If you have interesting discussions in the forums or groups, nobody using a search engine will ever know. Now, let's say you have the foresight to create some pages dedicated to pulling people into the site from search engines and you create unique meta tags just for those pages using the layout editor. Well, those tags are going to show up at the end of your default SE meta tags, which makes them utterly worthless. The search engine will not display them due to character limits.

    I wasn't 100% sure this plugin would fix all that or how it worked based on the description, so I emailed the vendor and got a prompt response, explaining how it worked. I bought it right away. There is a slight learning curve, as you have to be able to enter the placeholders for information- like if you want the body/ description field to become the search engine description, you'll enter %subject_description% in the field. I have yet to find a full list of these tags anywhere... If I had that, I could amplify what I'm doing tenfold, but that's not the dev's fault. (But if you're reading this, RadCodes, that would add a little value to it, if it isn't awesome enough already!)

    The SEO Page Wizard is helpful beyond words. It makes it brainless to get the plugin to know which pages you're talking about. It recognized every single page group I tried and almost all my features are upgraded with plugins from other developers.

    As far as the sitemap aspect of it goes, time will tell. I set mine up and generated it right away. You can also tell Google that you've got a new sitemap for them, right from the plugin. Beautiful.

    I am only 24 hours in on this plugin, but I monitor stats like crazy. Already my session times are up for people coming in from Google and everything being indexed if clickable and enticing. I expect my search engine traffic to grow and those session times to keep increasing. This is a truly beautiful plugin, with great support from the dev. Thank you, RadCodes!!!

    This plugin is worth its weight in gold I have been trying to figure out how to build a site map for some time now it was not until I was told about this plugin, a big weight was lifted off my shoulders. SEO Sitemap Plugin was very easy to install I have installed other plugins and not more than an hour later asking for help this was not the case with SEO Sitemap Plugin. Do I fully understand how this plugin works no lol but I'm learning, it would be nice to have documentation with or to find documentation for this plugin to better understand how it works and how to make it work the way you want it to. All in all it is a very good plugin and as time goes on I'm hopping they will improve on the plugin by supported channels to better support your sites needs.

    The worst performing plugins. Both JOBS & RESUME plugin from Radcode is total nonsense and does not work at all. When you add a 1000 jobs, the whole SE site is broken down.

    This generates plenty of errors and bugs. I have tried to contact Vincent plenty of times and he has been ignoring mails. I think he has completely ignored all his plugins on SE. He no longer offers support and service for any of his plugins.

      Thank you for your dishonest reviews. It's very nice of you to request refund after you used our plugins for almost a year. Also the free technical support for plugins that you purchased has been long expired, and I had gone above and beyond to help you out for a very long time ... but there is a limit - you can't just take advantage of that. It's best to hire a developer or firm to work on your site, instead of messing with it and blaming plugins for your user-errors. When things don't go the way you want, you kept others hostile by posting bad reviews and lies? Our plugins are used by thousand of customers, and none reported any bugs.

      There are good and bad developers.. the same goes for customers. I will not give in for your unreasonable, unfair requests and crazy demands! By posting these false reviews you proved I was right in ignoring your emails.

    Im new to SEO, purchased thinking it would be an easy way to make a sitemap, ect, however you need to know what you are doing since there is NO documentation on how to use the plug in and they do not respond to general help requests.

    I purchase their SEO plugin, need to make correction to my domain and recevied no help. No phone number on their site to talk to anyone, sent over a 6 emails in the past month with no answer. They either not in business anymore, or they just ignoring my emails.

    All I need done is to switch my domain name. Now, their plugin is useless, wast of my money.

      Radcodes is still in business, and I do reply to emails and inquiries.
      There is just no point for me to not reply to domain transfer requests.

      I searched for email from "Horace" and the last one I got from you was in 2013. Perhaps there is some misunderstanding going on here, or the emails never make it into my inbox.

      Please send your request directly to vctvan {at} gmail [dot] com.

      Everything is good now, just a misunderstanding.

    This is a must have for your SE site. Radcodes consistently builds great products. I use this on my local social site where SEO ranking is imperative. If you care about SEO for your SE site, then you need this! SE out-of-the-box has no SEO doesn't give you an option to structure titles and meta tags. This works on every 3rd party plugin too. It isn't just for SE and Radcodes plugins. Be smart, and buy this for your SEO.

    Excellent plugin SEO can't go wrong. It works perfectly. Its a must.

    This is a must have plugin. The capabilities it adds to your site is just short of amazing. Vincent with Radcodes always follows up, and is a pleasure to deal with. The sitemap feature works well, works easily with 3rd party plugins, and can be verified on bing and google.

    BTW also check out their Pins plugin. Pins is so great I made an SE4 sight around it. The best part is, my Pins based site loads faster than my other SE site. This tells me Radcodes coding is done right. Don't believe me? check out over 100 pictures load on first page and its fast. Faster than most SE4 sites I have seen with only a few images.

    Thanks Radcodes for your great plugins.
