Nowadays pages are no longer written in the address bar. They are looking for. The importance of SEO or search engine optimization is as relevant as a simple well-positioned link can bring us visits for a whole month. Hence, current pages are created with SEO in mind and part of the code or operation of a website focuses directly on that purpose.
There are many and varied SEO tools. Hence, if you dedicate yourself to SEO positioning or you have to deal with it regularly, you will surely have a folder in the browser full of addresses of SEO solutions that you access frequently.
To make things a bit easier, developer Peter Thaleikis has created a simple extension or add-on for Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome where he collects some of the most used SEO tools. Its name is very SEO, SEO Tool Extension, and it can be easily downloaded and installed.
Once installed, we will have in our browser the icon of a cardboard box from which we will see links to SEO solutions that will help us in the daily positioning routines of our website.
The SEO Tool Extension Recommendations
Whether or not you are interested in this extension, it is clear that it is not too much to take a look at the options that its creator has considered convenient to include, that is, what tools this developer considers that we should use if we are SEO specialists or perform tasks of this type. SEO Tool Extension is divided into four parts: backlinks, content, tests and, finally, index & archives.
In backlinks, we find Ahref, Majestic, Moz and SEMrush. Ahref is a compendium of SEO tools in itself that allows you to analyze the competition, find attractive keywords for search engines, analyze links, content and monitor the pages and websites that we indicate. If we go to its main menu we will find many more functions, although all of them are paid.
Majestic, with free and other paid functions, allows you to see very complete information of any web link that we paste in the search field thanks to the mapping it performs regularly. With this tool, we will obtain a profile or radiography of a website to know it better from the SEO point of view.
MOZ is another practical tool that will help us search for keywords, analyze websites and links, optimize pages, etc. To use these functions we must subscribe to one of the payment plans. Very similar is SEMrush, which also allows you to analyze domains and links, search for keywords and optimize our website, among other SEO tasks.
The second section of SEO Tool Extension is called Content and offers four links: Siteliner, Similarweb, BuzzSumo and UberSuggest. Siteliner searches for duplicate content, broken links and other errors and problems related to the content of our website. We can use it for free and without registration.
Similarweb serves to know the competition of the pages we search in your database, similar pages or similar content. It also offers analytical information and statistics about your visits, ranking position, etc. It is free in its basic version although it has payment options.
BuzzSumo offers keywords and topics of interest depending on a topic or category as well as the websites we search. It combines the basic functions free and other more advanced payment. For its part, UberSuggest will also give us SEO keywords from a domain or search word.
SEO Tool Extension also recommends SEO tools to test our website, with the particularity that if we click on them, the test will open with the page that we have open at that time. PageSpeed is a Google tool that helps us improve the loading speed of our website with tips and suggestions.
For its part, Structured Data, also from Google, checks if the data is structured. Mobile friendly checks if the website we have open is compatible with mobile devices.
And finally, SecurityHeaders will tell us if the website we have open meets SEO standards and requirements in terms of headlines or headers of the pages included. If you find any problem or error, you will let us know with a description and possible solutions.
Finally, SEO Tool Extension offers four sources with which to recover old and saved versions of websites to recover from the past in case a page has fallen or is not available.
On the one hand, Google Index and Google Google Cache allow us to search for a website in the current Google and in its cache. And from the Internet Archive, we get two other indexed website recovery tools, Archive.org Host and Archive.org URL.
