We had the app for years. In comparing with another store we have without this app, I didn't notice any uptick in benefit on Google. But then they changed something and as a result our images were not appearing on our scheduled emails. I believe it is because they changed optimization until after the online channel published vs. scheduled. And there is a nightly report at 1 am saying they updated our theme. But despite asking for their help 3 times to correct it, sending screen shots, explaining in depth the problem, all I got back is we don't understand. Zero help. (and not the the email address I requested either). I really tried to work with them, but they showed they both don't understand the business or are willing to help.

Sorry to see you leave after being a paid member for years. We are always ready to solve merchant issues, however in this case we were unable to understand the actual issue, even after some back and forth. SEO King is the most feature rich seo app in the app store and we will be launching a new set of awesome tools in the next few months. You're welcome back anytime. Best regards

Would have given 3 stars but was constantly bombarded with pop up windows telling me I hadn't written a review yet. Much too demanding; especially when you're trying to be productive and meet deadlines.

Absolutely no consideration for the end user!

A veces sirve y otras no, tarda en cargar o solo queda cargando sin mostrar el dashboard y hay que refresacar varias veces shopify para que entre

Everything seems to be working well, but these constant compulsions to leave feedback have spoiled the whole picture.

Seemed great and easy to use, but my site speed numbers too a dive into the 30's... now I am going to pay someone to fix what this app did... The drop in speed might be due to another app, but Im not so sure. I would be happy to be proven wrong

Hi, it's not technically possible that the default settings of SEO King to have reduced any scores - there are no hidden scripts or technical means to make shops slower. Our support team has contacted you for any screenshots of scores to assist in finding the right solution for this case. In most cases, the issue is that you recently added an app to your site, that included some javascript. This javascript may be broken or conflicting with other javascripts on your site, and this is the most likely cause for sudden slowness in page loading.

It updates all hundreds or thousands of your products at once and if it's mistake then you have to fix one by one. Does not let you update on group base or collection base.

Rude service. The app works well the way they store metafields is crazy. The app is polluting the metafields namespaces, and if you use them extensively as we do then it is a problem.
The app creates many namespaces with a code a name and store inside a json.
metafields.seoimager.12356495 where I suppose the code is a identifier for the product or something similar. They could simply store the code inside the same json or use a new namespace for that, and have only one or max 2 metafields instead of hundreds

First, I'm not new to this, I started my first site back in 1995... In some regards this app worked ok, however, it did terrible on other images. One image was of me in front of my artwork, it described the photo as "man eating ice cream". Other images were written with obscure descriptions, like a photo of my artwork as a marble wall, yet most product images came out ok by simply having the AI bring details from the pages, that's a no brainer...

I would not recommend this app for any artist, my site has hundreds of pages and it took a long time to essentially find, fix and identify what this did to my web site.

It's not as "high tech" as I had hoped for and I had thought it would be way better AI..

Pros: It's cheap to use, good customer service, if you are lazy, out of time, or don't know anything about SEO then give it a try. The image compression worked very well and I analyzed the speed of my site and it scored better with faster loading times.....

Cons: You won't know what it's really doing while processing and if you have a huge site, this thing could "f" up your SEO like no body's business, yet they say they can remove the changes, I didn't use that service so I don't know.
