SEO Tool: SEO Quake (Video)

SEO Quake Logo

Here’s another video I made after a reader made a suggestion to me. Someone recommended the SEO Quake Firefox plugin and asked me if I could make a video about it. I took some time to play around with the tool and liked it quite a bit. Here’s the video I ended up making:

The plugin is mainly a website analysis tool, although it comes with a few features that go beyond that. While I always try to show both sides of a story, I can’t really find anything to complain about with SEO Quake. It’s fast and functional, you can easily deactivate it an re-activate it (so it’s data and toolbar doesn’t annoy you during regular surfing) and it’s completely free.

If you don’t have a program for analyzing websites yet, I recommend you hop over to the SEO Quake homepage and give this one a try.

    I love Quake. One thing that I had happen while placing Amazon code in a post or pages, the Quake code would insert itself in the post! I turned off the header display and just use the SERPS bar and have not had any problems. Wondering if anyone else has had the same thing happen??

    • Shane says:

      Yep, great little tool. I don’t know about it interfering with input fields, because I keep it turned off 90% of the time. For normal surfing, I find that the info it displays can be annoying. When I want to research a keyword or site, I activate SEOquake, take a look and then turn it off again. That’s actually something I really like about it: That you can toggle it with just one click.

      Thanks for dropping in and commenting, by the way!


  • Chuck says:

    That’s what I do as well. Just a good thing to pass along so other folks don’t have problems. Someone new would freak and be lost on how to get the code out. Great vid by the way.

    • Shane says:

      True. I didn’t really mention anything like that in the video, so thanks for pointing it out. :)

    Thanks again for a good video!

    Your teaching style is very precise and to the point and it really works for me.

    I like SEOQuake a lot. I strip off some of the information because it is much. It is a nice feature that you easily can switch it on and off.

    I have one opinion about no-follow links.

    I do not care if they are no-follow or not!

    If it is a good blog and a good post I do comment on it if I am allowed to.

    I am counting on that the Real Humans reading my post will become interested enough to find out more about what I have to say and go to my website. It is just good to brand myself also this way.

    I value this kind of traffic 10x higher than because the Real Humans already know me a little when they come to my site. It is not something that the cat of Google dragged in from the lower docks at the harbor.

    Anyway, I have noticed that when I visit some sites I do not get any information at all from Quake.

    Is there a way to conceal this information somehow / like a privacy measure so to speak?

    Best wishes

    Excellent Video. Since I work with SEO, but am new to it, I use your video to send screenshots of SEO Quake info and hyperlink your video to teach them about the report. It is so much easier than explaining in an email.

    I have clients all the time send me an example of a page they love and that their friends tells them is a gold mine, then I run SEO Quake and its a flop statistically. That is always uncomfortable lol.

    Anyway just wanted to send you some props!
