Friday‚Äôs SEO Site of the Week

This week, we’re going to highlight a page inside a site, SEO Book, which is not a bad site in whole, either. And more than just a page, it’s a downloadable tool that every practitioner of SEO should seriously not leave home without. I’m talking about the SEO Book’s fabulous SEO Extension for Firefox.

I used this extension this a lot back when I was first getting my feet wet in the SEO swamp. I’ve moved on to some more sophisticated tools, but still recommend the SEO Book extension for Firefox heartily.

Here are the main features:

  • PR: (Google PageRank)
  • Age: age pulled from
  • Links: (Yahoo! linkdomain)
  • .edu Link: (Yahoo! .edu linkdomain )
  • .edu Page Link: (Yahoo! .edu link )
  • .gov Link: (Yahoo! .gov linkdomain )
  • Page Links: (Yahoo! link)
  • number of times a URL has been bookmarked on
  • Technorati: estimated total number of links to a site from blogs
  • Alexa: rank based on website traffic
  • Cached: (Google site:) number of pages indexed by Google
  • dmoz: number of pages listed in DMOZ and number of pages referenced in DMOZ
  • Bloglines: number of subscribers to a blog
  • Yahoo! Directory listing
  • WhoIs: easylook up for data for any site

We’ll give it three mouse clicks and Gary.
