Any good search engine optimizer needs a good array of tools to quickly get data about a website. Data important to SEO’s include the number of backlinks, forward links (websites you link to), headers (we want clean 301 redirects and useful 404 error pages), number of pages indexed and other publicly available data. I also included a delicious.com bookmarklet and other blogging bookmarklet tools.
Here are SEO bookmarklets that will help you quickly link to third party data resources. To use these SEO bookmarklets drag them to your Firefox bookmarks toolbar. Are you using Internet Explorer? These tools may work, but to guarantee proper functioning and to use the full range of search engine optimization addons you should use the Firefox browser. Go install Firefox, we’ll wait for you.
