SEO plugin for Firefox

This is a great little tool to help save time when reviewing websites that compete against yours (or your clients site).

Just fire up firefox and browse over to and follow the installation guidelines.

The tool will show up in search engine results pages, allowing you to see at a glance, the PR of a site, the age of the domain, the number of Yahoo! links, links, Yahoo! directory listings and more.

Have a go, install it, use it see what you think!

A new way to search

Google Labs offers a new way to view search results.
Essentially your search results are seperated into a timeline and looks at time/dates associated with the search phrase and then divides it all neatly.

Map view allows all your Geography nerds to enjoy the actual global locations associated with the search phrase. This is quite a good idea, I'd like to see what else the creative guys at Google come up with next.

I still love the image search MSN put out recently, how awesome is this??

The French search service Kartoo is another take on the increasingly inventive search engine market. It includes an advance GUI and some crazy cartoon pictures. Speaking of crazy cartoons, this slightly disturbing video turned up on Daily Motion (Another French site) recently. Google is a fat man with a mask who helps you read the papers and read your mail. The ending is to represent what could happen if Google knew just about everything about you.

Maybe Yahoo! will turn out to be some odd little search alien obsessed with following the lead of the fat man from Google...

IFrames and SEO

Anyone got any ideas on improving the SEO on a site with IFrames? Any alternatives? Any way of directing a SE to the content in the IFrame?

Any hints tips or advice welcomed... I have a client that is hell bent on including IFrames in their new website... I think they want it because they like the scroll functionality and how the Iframe looks.

Keyword research

I was wondering how other people carry out keyword analysis. Do they just look for low competition highly searched, relevant words? Or is there more to it?

Personally I use to find out how many searches are done for the keyword. You need to bear in mind that Overture has less searches than Google, so a accurate figure for searches on Google can be found by multiplying this by 4. Obviously, checking the amount of competition is just a case of searching for the term on the relevant search engine (in this case Google) and noting the amount of other results there are.

Does anyone know of any better tools/techniques out there to do this?
