It took me a long time to find an extension that really made a big difference in my website. I discovered JV Relatives and everything said about it is true. I really needed an extension that would allow my visitors to extend their stay and discover more articles. This extension is worth every penny. It works seamlessly into my site, and added that extra punch! Thanks for making this extension and I really hope more joomla users discover and use it.

By Jed Medina

This extension does precisely what I had hoped it would do: it offers suggest reading for articles with the same tags. This keeps the reader engaged and helps to lower the bounce rate, important for SEO. It also inserts social media “like” and “share” buttons, which also helps drive traffic. After installation, another component was stacking up the social media buttons. I submitted a ticket to the programmer and got an immediate response for the solution. Elapsed time from ticket to fix: 70 minutes. you’ll agree that is extraordinary support. I’m pleased to recommend this extension and its programmer.
