Foxy SEO Tool, Firefox’s Growing SEO Add-On

leave a comment »

firefoxI installed Foxy SEO last week to help with search optimization and analysis.  While I haven’t tapped it’s full potential I have been using it quite a bit to check backlinks and Google Pagerank.  Aside from the usual search engines (Yahoo!, bing, Ask), it includes menu options for directories like the Yahoo! Directory and dmoz, research tools like Alexa and Compete, and social media options like Twitter, digg, Yahoo! Answers and more.

Foxy SEO Tool has some helpful page analysis tools which analyzes keyword density, looks for 404 errors, meta tags, robot.txt files and sitemaps.

While Foxy SEO has been out for just over a year it looks like most of the meat was added in 2009.  As such I think it’s still a bit of a work in progress but if you’re an SEO professional it’s worth checking out.

Bing and Microsoft/Yahoo! Deal: Answers from Office Hours

leave a comment »

So big time news on the search front over the past couple of weeks.

First, Microsoft launches Bing – but haven’t we seen this movie before?  New algorithm, rebranded site, Google still rules – The End.  bingMicrosoft’s search strategy has been about as original as another Friday the 13th sequel.  But in a shocking plot twist the latest move seems to have forced the hand of Yahoo! to join up with Microsoft in a long term search deal.  Given the public courtship between Microsoft and Yahoo! maybe I should have seen it coming.

I’ve started listening to a new podcast on Webmaster Radio – Office Hours.  The SEO and SEM implications of the new Bing/Yahoo! Deal are far reaching.  Vanessa Fox breaks it down on the July 30th episode of Office Hours.
