SearchStatus FireFox Add-on

search.pngSearchStatus is a cool add-on for FireFox that every SEO junkie should consider installing. The add-on allows you to display the Google PageRank and Alexa popularity score of a website anywhere in the FireFox browser. In addition, the add-on offers fast keyword density analyzer, keyword/nofollow highlighting, backward/related links, Alexa info and other SEO tools.

For every site you visit using, SearchStatus lets you view its Google PageRank, Google Category, Alexa popularity ranking, Alexa incoming links, Alexa related links and backward links from Google, Yahoo! and MSN. This combined search-related information means you can view not only the link importance of a site (according to Google), but also its traffic importance (according to Alexa), so providing a balanced view of site efficacy.

The SearchStatus Mozilla/Mozilla Firefox extension appears unobtrusively at the bottom of the browser on the status bar. If you choose to view backward links for a particular page, they open in new tabs in the same browser window. Disable the automatic Google and Alexa queries and they fold away from view.

If you’re a FireFox user, SearchStatus is a really cool Add-on. It will give you a ton of information about your site (or any other site) and should improve your SEO if you use the information properly. Get the SearchStatus Add-on here. Thanks to Greg Morgan for the heads up.
