February 16, 2007

SEOQuake is an extention for the Mozilla Firefox browser (v1.5 or higher), and is designed to give SEOs like myself a look-see of a site’s parameters in Google, Yahoo and MSN/Live. No folks, it isn’t another browser toolbar…in fact by adding this free internet marketing tool which lets me see search engine parameters on the fly, I’ve managed to remove my Alexa toolbar, Google toolbar, and a few other ones that were taking up space on my browser.


Here are some of the parameters SEOQuake is capable of tracking:

  • Google PR – Google PageRank of current page
  • Google Index – Number of indexed pages in Google.
  • Google link – Number of links in Google. (excluding the ones coming from your site)
  • Google cachedate – Date of current Google cashe.
  • Yahoo Index – Number of indexed pages in Yahoo.
  • Yahoo link – Number of links in Yahoo. (excluding the ones coming from your site)
  • Yahoo Linkdomain (LD) – Number of links in Yahoo, pointed to the current domain. Linkdomain (LD) operator finds pages linking to domain, as opposed to link which finds references to a single page.
  • MSN Index – Number of indexed pages in Live/MSN.
  • MSN link – Number of links in MSN, pointed to the current page. (excluding the ones coming from your site)
  • MSN Linkdomain (LD) – Number of links in Live/MSN, pointed to the current domain. Linkdomain (LD) operator finds pages linking to domain, as opposed to link which finds references to a single page.
  • Alexa Rank – Traffic estimation index
  • WebArchive age – First date in Archive.org
  • Del.icio.us index – Link to del.icio.us history for current url.
  • Technorati index – Link to Technorati history for current url.
  • Digg index – Link to Digg history for current url.
  • Whois link – Link to the Whois record of current domain.

Whether you’re looking to find out how many pages are indexed in Google, what your Google PageRank is, or what your Alex rank is, this free internet marketing tool does it all. And another feature that I just have to mention is the Line-through “nofollow links” option. By turning on this feature, you will see lines through any links that have the nofollow set in the HTML. This is great for link builders who want to make sure they’re not buying invalid links without having to shift through a ton of HTML code. And did I mention that this internet marketing tool is free?
