One of the great things about Firefox is how extensible it is. Its enormous add-on library includes themes, persona’s, search packs and, most importantly, extensions that add features and tools to the browser.

4 Essential Firefox Addons for SEO

If you do a great deal of work in SEO or are just starting out, this can be a tremendous time saver as you can add many of the most important SEO tools directly to your browser. These tools can also help you get more information as many will run in the background, notifying you of potential problems and opportunities as you surf.

So whether you are new to SEO or a veteran, if you use Firefox, you definitely should be looking at extensions to streamline your workflow. On that note, here’s four essential plugins to help you get started.

1. SeoQuake SEO Extension

SeoQuake’s Firefox extension is a simple, yet powerful, tool that has three different parts. The first, entitled SeoToolbar, displays the requested information in a regular browser toolbar. Seobar is similar but displays the information as an HTML/CSS overlay on the site to help you keep browsing area large. Finally, the plugin can also display information in the SERPs, listing the selected details for each site.

These parameters can include the site’s PageRank, number of pages indexed in Google and the number of inbound links among others.

2. Woorank SEO and Website Analysis

If you want to make it easier to delve deeper into a page’s SEO and stats, Woorank’s extension is a great tool. The extension displays a small “W” in the bottom of the browser that, once clicked on, will direct users to the full Woorank result for that site. That report is an amazing trove of information including estimated traffic, ranking, site compliance and more. All of it leads to a simple SEO score on a scale of 0 to 100.

Though all the extension does is save a few clicks as you can easily just visit Woorank’s site and run the report manually, it makes it easier to get to all of this potentially valuable information.

3. KeywordSpy SEO/PPC Plugin

In addition to a fairly standard set of SEO tools including PageRank and Alexa ranking, KeywordSpy also lets you investigate the keywords and landing URLs used by various PPC advertisers so you can see what they are targeting and keywords you may be able to compete with them on. Very useful for SEO users who also work with PPC advertising.

4. KGen

KGen is a simple SEO extension that lets you see what keywords are strong on any given page, telling you both how many times they are repeated and the relative weight of each keyword. Great for analyzing pages with high rankings to see what they are targeting and how strongly.

But as great as these plugins are, they are only a small percentage of the ones that could have been highlighted here as there are dozens, if not hundreds, of great SEO extensions available for Firefox.

If none of these fit your need, then the best thing to do is search the directory yourself and see what gems you might be able to find. Given how many extensions there are, one will almost certainly meet your needs.
