Firefox is becoming one of the most popular browsers in use and every year it seems to drag more and more Internet Explorer users onside. One of the strengths of Firefox is the number of add-ons you can download and install. SEO tools haven’t gone unnoticed and there are many add-ons written for this area.
Finding the best Search Engine Optimization tools can be a little daunting as there are so many. If you have upgraded to Firefox 3.0 then the choice is a little easier as many of the add-ons haven’t been updated yet. Some of the more useful SEO tools include:
KGen (Keyword Generator) is an extension that allows you to see what keywords are strong on visited web page. This can be quite helpful when submitting pages to social bookmarking sites. Use the keywords found as tags when submitting.
Displays the Google PageRank, Alexa rank and Compete ranking anywhere in your browser, along with keyword density analyser, nofollow highlighting and related links. The nofollow check can be a handy tool when looking for link options.
RankQuest toolbar includes 30 intuitive SEO tools. One of the more comprehensive tools available for Firefox.
If you are still using the older versions of Firefox then Niche Watch Tool is a good option. Hopefully this SEO tool will be available for version 3 at some time soon.
These tools can provide a lot of information on many of the sites around you including your competition. Don’t forget to use the tools on your web pages as they can provide some important information that can help to fine tune your online marketing efforts. It is no good knowing what the competition is doing if you don’t really know what is happening on your site.
