Awesome app and amazing support! The app is designed very well and it's clear from studying the app's own forum that feedback from users is being taken into consideration as it evolves. That same forum and the user guide have been good resources for discovering how to customize or add features without the help of a web developer. We've had a few questions during the initial configuration and Simon from Champ has responded quickly each time and has either resolved the issue or has advised us how to best configure to meet our needs. Champ support has been the best we've received from any Shopify app developer to date! Keep up the good work Champ, this app has unlimited potential!

Used this for 9 months hopping it will appear on google search helping my site SEO. Nothing happened. More than that the forum is now full of spamming messages... there are about 3500 messages and repplies... only 200 are real... the rest is spam from robots. I wouldn't recommend it... especially for 29 per month.

It doesn't showup on google. If your purpose is SEO, then this won't show up on google. The main forum page will but not the inside pages or Q&A and all etc.
