Other Third-Party Tools

Throughout this chapter, several third-party tools have been mentioned or recommended for analysis, research, and testing. This section introduces a few more that are worth mentioning.

SEO for Firefox

Aaron Wall of SEO Book created a useful data enhancement tool with the SEO for Firefox extension (http://tools.seobook.com/firefox/seo-for-firefox.html). When turned on, this tool provides extra data that can be populated automatically or on request from within the regular search results of Google, Yahoo!, and Bing. Some of the most popular data points this add-on provides for the URL or domain of each search result include: Google PageRank, site age, various backlink metrics, .edu and .gov link counts, bookmarking and social metrics (such as number of Digg votes), DMOZ listings, and additional reporting from other third-party tools.
