Effective Comments Management

No blog is alive without customer feedback. Due to comments you can gather priceless information about your customers and potential clients. The Blog Pro tool enables you to easily edit all comments and reply to customers right from the admin panel. You can also use the ‘auto- approve’ feature to automatically approve all new comments.

Set any blog author as default

This feature is very useful for those who have one major blog writer and doesn’t need to specify a new author for each blog article. Apart from that, you can also enable links to the author’s account pages in such social networks as Google+, Facebook and Twitter.

SEO optimization

A well thought-out content optimization will definitely improve your positions in search results, thus attracting more potential customers. With the advanced blog Magento editor you can specify meta titles, keywords and descriptions for the whole blog, each particular blog post, category or a blog post tag. You can also add blog content (posts, categories, archives, tags) to the sitemap and create special SEO-friendly URLs for each blog post.

Manage search settings

It’s possible to define which type of search should be used in your store's blog.

Here are the options you can choose from:

  • Built-in search engine is preselected by default. It’s a resourceful but powerful solution; offers synonyms to the customer’s search request;
  • Fulltext Search uses MYSQL algorithms; corrects typos automatically;
  • MySQL LIKE Search is the fastest type of search that works with the exact matches. If visitors are mostly searching your store for particular models, this type of search would be the most suitable.

good buy
Richard00
I only worked a bit with word press so I was worried. But the post admin here is very much like the previous admin, so that’s cool. I especially like blog widgets, 5 types of them. They are very flexible in terms of location, you can customize them the way you like and add thumbnails to posts in widgets. And this great feature also has clear set-up instructions.

extension needs improvement
david
it gives a good improvement for magento. However the editor does not able to change color of the text nor to choose the size of the text. so you have to use external editor

Handy blog management is great
JGreen
I thought it would be hard, more money and efforts needed to set up this blogand then integrate with store. At least no time spent for development. Now I have bigger traffic I see conversions. Management is very easy and logical, blog supports social buttons, layouts, comments. And you always stay in control, even with readers’ comments

Super for SEO and customer reviews
AdeleR
Totally love it. Helps me do so many things. It’s seo friendly and supports tags, meta-titles, keywords, so all to make the article get through competitors in google. Also I like wysiwyg editor. Thanks to this my writing staff doesn’t need to spend time on html. It looks much like wp and works in similar way.

Nice to have but troublesome search
Ailyn
I considered spending extra time and money on team who would make a custom blog on my magento. Now I see that choosing this module was a good idea. Why to spend much more if this extension works well? I like that I can make layouts for different mobiles and for desktop separately. My customers mostly use tablets so for them separate layout is musthave and with this extension it is possible. All settings are easy, I managed all myself. Only trouble is search. When a reader misspells some words, they can’t find it in the blog. Though I have blog article on this topic.

Excellent Extension
Anna
This extension just excellent! I suggest to every one. It's easy to use, has a very nice fronted design and includes the all meta options you need for your page. The Amasty team also helped me to install this extension. Could not say nothing wrong about the product 100/100!
Anna also bought the following extension(s):

Good support
EmiChe
We used an analog from another vendor first. It was troublesome (too slow). I often left some post in the middle because I simply had no time to finish the task, had to do something more urgent. Because of this content lost relevance. So fast work was top priority for us. We chose this one and it works fast and correctly right after set up, all configs are native, it never freeze. In case of any question, support is there to help.

Secure and helpful
Jackie_78
My store went down because of sql injection, we could hardly recover. And when my guys offered to run a blog for more clients, I was scared to be attacked again. At least we had to choose a better protected blog platform. But when I learned that this plugin is compatible with magento supee-10266, I allowed to install it. It was right good decision indeed. Now we analyze statistics as we have more feedbacks on our service. Also I like widgets. There are so many types, we now can experiment with them, choosing the most useful.

could be beter takes much time
Alex
First it was good but then I couldn’t see post previews from backend. I have to logout from admin and sign in as a fake customer to see how the post looks. It took too much time. Luckily the team fixed it though I had to wait for this. Now everything works as it should.

Good and easy
Henry
Ok, I'll be the first to write a review.
First of all, this is my first Amasty extension so my experience with this company is based entirely on it.
I had a blog on my site previously but used CMS pages for that which is not a way out at all. This extension makes it really easy to manage posts and in general makes a blog similar to a blog but not to just some random pages on an eCommerce site.
Configuration is easy, it took time to set up the options. I had a problem on installation and even send a note to Amasty support, but then managed to solve it myself by clearing cache.

Help us to serve you better!
