Extentions add functionality to the program. What areas of Joomla are not working to your expectations or needs? Not everyone needs the same setup.

There are a couple of good extensions for search engines. It really depends on what you're looking for.

OpenSEF, while not perfect, does a reasonably good job of SE friendly urls for a reasonably sized site. Some components seem to choke it though, so test, test test.
A relatively new SEF add on (sh404SEF) is getting good reviews, but I have not played with it yet.
Joomla SEF Patch adds some important things left out in the original implementation, like proper title tags, robots meta-tag, removing the generator meta-tag, etc.
After that its all about what you want the site to do...

I like sh404SEF. you can customize the metas as well as get search friendly urls. I also use joomlaspan adsense clicksafe when i need adsense. You can block ips including your own. You can also use social bookmarker or comment extensions. I am picky so i make sure my pages validate after i plug in an extension. A lot cause pages to fail validation.
It really depends what functionality you want.

Awesome. Thanks for all the replies. Reprint, does the 404SEF work the same as the OpenSEF? Can one replace the other? Thanks!

Unfortunately i have never compared the two. There should be posts on that on the joomla forums though. Probably get some expert opinion there.

Yeah you're right. Thanks friend!

I just feel so much more at home here, I guess this is why I always post here first :)
