Myself, and two of my clients are using it, as Arantor will tell you and I agree, SEO is a misnomer that folks take a bit too far... but I can attest to the fact that the search engines respond well and this module does a great job of managing the basics, such as META tags, META Keywords, and optimizing the incoming/outgoing url's the same way PrettyUrls does, but this has much more depth in features, functions, and statistics... well worth a modest yearly license fee.

Quote from: Kindred on September 30, 2017, 08:22:36 PMFind and fix errors can only do so much (and is more than likely to DELETE objects which don't match)You say that you didn't miss a table, but I suspect that you are probably incorrect.Heck, I know the database almost as well as any developer and I wouldn't try to copy over only specific tables.And, no... most mods don't make any database changes... and, even if they do, having the extra info in the database doesn't hurt anything if there is no code to call it -- so, I lieterally can not conceive of a reason to do things piecemeal like you did....
