Why you should use the SEO Toolbar
Aaron Wall over at SEOBook has recently released a great tool that I am just diving into called the SEO Toolbar. So far this thing looks great, its got a bunch of nifty features as well as an SEO X-ray tool and a competitive analysis tool which look like they will be really useful. The competition tool can track data from Compete, Google Trends, Quantcast, Alexa & SEMRush as well as show PPC destination urls.
What would happen if you smooshed together many of the best parts of Rank Checker, SEO for Firefox, the best keyword research tools across the web, a feed reader (pre-populated with many SEO feeds), a ton of competitive research tools, the ability to compare up to 5 competing sites against each other, easy data export, and boatloads of other features into 1 handy Firefox extension? Well, you would have the SEO Toolbar.
Some of the main features listed are:
- Google PR
- Yahoo linkdomain/pagelinks
- DMOZ/Yahoo/BOTW Directories
- Archive.org Site Age
- Compete.com Uniques
- SEMRush.com Traffic Value
- Competition Analysis
- SE Rank Checker
- SEO X-Ray
- Keyword Suggestion
And that’s not even half of it. There are tips and techniques available for the more advanced SEO’s out there, as well as a generalized section for the total newbs. All in all I think this will be a great plugin, and might even replace my Google toolbar and SEO for Firefox altogether.
