Beautiful SEF URLs, SEO content analysis, Google PageSpeed optimization, Facebook Instant Articles and XML Sitemaps and for your Joomla site!
Route 66 (free) supports Joomla! content, while the Route 66 (PRO) extends functionality to K2, Virtuemart, and HikaShop.
Route 66 allows you to define your site SEF URLs using patterns and not be restricted by limited URL options! Patterns can include any URL friendly character along with some tokens for generating dynamic variables ( like the article's date for example ).
Here are some examples of URL patterns you can use in Route 66:
SEO content analysis for Joomla articles (and K2 items in PRO version) powered by the fabulous Yoast SEO engine.
Optimise your Joomla pages right in the article (or K2 item) edit form! Provide the SEO keyword you are interested in and check quickly how your page will look in search results using the Snippet preview of Route 66!
Not using Joomla Articles or K2? No problem! The PRO version of Route 66 allows you to perform SEO content analysis for ANY page in your Joomla site! Just enter the URL of the page you want to test and the SEO keyword! This feature works with all components, including but not limited to Virtuemart, Hikashop, JEvents, EasyBlog, eShop etc.
Unlike bulky SEF extensions that can store thousands of URLs to your site's database, Route 66 offers dynamic and high performance URL generation. In short, Route 66 will not impact your website’s performance.
Starting from version 1.7.0 Route 66 allows you lazy load all your site's images and iframes in order to improve performance!
Route 66 now supports Facebook Instant Articles! It allows you to generate a feed of Facebook Instant Articles based on your site's content. You can also filter the feed articles based on categories. Finally, Route 66 comes with built-in integration for Google Analytics and Google DFP!
Note that Facebook Instant Articles work only for Joomla! articles and K2 Items ( K2 Items are supported only in Route 66 PRO ).
Make it easier for Google and other search engines to discover your site content with XML sitemaps. Route 66 can generate those sitemaps for you! It allows you to filter the sitemap content based on categories. Last but not least, Route 66 can also generate Google News Sitemaps.
The sitemaps feature works with Joomla! articles and Menu items in the free version while the PRO version adds support for K2 Items, Virtuemart Products and Hikashop Products.
