SEO tool for Firefox

seo for firefox I often neglect to mention some of the best and most valuable tools out there as I imagine that everyone knows about them. I have now created the ‘top tool’ tag for that purpose. The SEO (search engine optimization tool) for Firefox addon (aka plugin) is one of these neglected links. If you have a website and don’t use this, you are missing out.  Install this in Firefox, turn it on by clicking on it in the toolbarseo for firefox2 (only when doing research as it taxes all the sources unnecessarily otherwise) and discover all kinds of information about websites that show up in searches.

The stats shown in the image above are only a few of those available. It’s probably a good idea to configure the addon to show only the info you are most interested in, for example, only the pagerank, and then when you see a page with a nice pagerank you can click on the ? and get the other stats as you need them.
