Reviews

Support is Great

Every question I have gets answered right away. The plugin with the addons is amazing, they thought of everything!

Stellar Support, Extraordinary Plugin

The title of my review truly says it all!

The team at GD is fully committed to their products and this shows through their comprehensive support forums and regular client interactions. If I ever hit a wall(and in my case, it’s quite often!) I know that someone will help to guide me in the right direction.

There can be a bit of a learning curve in getting your site setup because the plugin is very robust and flexible. Don’t let that deter you. Invest your time to learn the ins and outs of what GD has to offer. You won’t be disappointed!

Amazing Plugin and Support!

The WP Geodirectory plugin is awesome and by far the best geodirectory I’ve found. Beyond that the customer service and response is amazing. The team goes well above what is required actually providing you code to try and tweak it to your need in many cases. I cannot express how please I am with the whole package!

SEO Quality not GOOD

I purchased that software 3 times and used in turkurist.com ..

Inserted many places and topics (but at the same time to my personal website ercanbora.com)

When i check results each month, turkurist.com site is getting lower seo especially showing in pictures. I purchased YOAST SEO improved little but same again.

Then i realised that, when i add pictures to WpGeoDirectory this automacially adding random numbers before picture name. For example :

France_Eiffel_Tower.jpg will be
543_France_Eiffel_Tower.jpg then this is affecting SEO Picture results and main site results. They asked me where did you hear this and until now no solution.

Dont purchase this software until they fix it !!!

Brilliant Directory plugin and Support Team

I bought this after a few weeks of learning how it worked and it’s just amazing. Both its functionality and speed are that of a 5 star product. Their support is extremely fast and of great quality. It is well totally worth the $199 a year, considering what they offer. For anyone that’s in doubt about using this, just don’t, this is the best plugin of directories for sure. If you have any questions, they will help you well and quickly. It is relatively easy to work with at first, but as you learn more and more it’s a great platform to use. 10/10
