SEOBook SEO Toolbar

seo-toolbar-logoA while ago Aaron released his SEO Toolbar for Firefox, and while I’ve been using it I’ve never actually shown it here on my blog, even though it’s become one of my default SEO tools. As this toolbar comes with a slew of features that are probably best described by just showing them, I’ve made a quick video:

    Just stopped working for me in FireFox 3.0.7 so I uninstalled it. Any one know of any bugs with this version of FF and the SEO toolbar. I really like it to.

      I’ve emailed Aaron about it, hope he fixes it!

    Absolutely agree. This thing is a beast! You didn’t even show the Rank Checker which use to be a pretty awesome toolbar in and off it self, but got rolled up into this one. Also the highlight no follow link option, view source in a tab (instead of a new window), the age of the site and MUCH MUCH more.

    Don’t leave home without it.

    Must give it a try. By the way, have you heard about Brad Callen? and it’s SEO softwares? Any advice?

    I am definitely a big fan of the SEO Book tools. I use the SEO for Firefox extension all the time.

    Probably my favorite tools are at SEO Book, our tools at Domain Superstar (my favorite is the type-in traffic finder and our new Google Maps mashup geo domain finder tool), and the tools from SEO Moz.

    Good idea with the tutorial video for the SEO Book Toolbar.

    I’ve used the Rank Checker and SEO4Firefox and found it to be an excellent tool, even though I’m just starting up. They really helped me get on my feet and I’m going to get the toolbar now too.

    Same probleme here, in my Firefox 3.07 I have installed this plugins: Seo4Fire, DTwhois, Google global, DND, Session Manager, IViewand Inform enter: any suggestion? (maybe Goolge toolbar conflict?)

    Thank you

      As said above: I’ve emailed Aaron about it, hope he fixes it!

    I am currently using Firefox 3.0.7 and the SEO Toolbar is working great for me.

    Can you guys let me know specifically what problem you are having? It is hard for me to troubleshoot if it is a configuration issue or something more extreme unless we have more details.

    A screenshot would be quite helpful :)

    Aaron, I was going to ping you too, but happened across this thread. I put a gif in my home directory for what I think they’re talking about here.


  11. George BounacosBy George Bounacos on 30 March, 2009

    Oops, sorry, forgot specs.

    Vista Home Premium SP1
    Firefox 3.0.8 (but it was this way on 3.07 and earlier too)
    Other toolbars running: Raven, Stumble, Bookmarks, Navigation

    Ping me if you want on Twitter or something, Aaron. I’ll be in the office all day and can beta stuff for y ou.

    This is an awesome. I understand its still on its early stages, but I cannot believe something as valuable as this can be let go for free. SEOmoz guys have a much weaker toolbar and they charge to use full features.
    SEOBook toolbar could maybe work a little bit more on its toolbar design, because some icons (especially XRay) look so 90-ish.

  13. Jaan KanellisBy Jaan Kanellis on 30 March, 2009

    Aaron basically nothing shows after it is installed. Just pipes and the SEO toolbar logo.

    Great post. I have you bookmarked to show this information to my friend.

  16. thecontriverBy thecontriver on 14 April, 2009

    Thanks for highlighting the seo toolbar. Its a great little thing to have some of this info at the click of a button. I have been hitting your articles about SEO as well as a couple of your plugins. Thanks for all the support.

  17. Fire AgentBy Fire Agent on 15 April, 2009

    This toolbar was a great assest but is not working with Firefox 3.0.8. This toolbar crashed few other extensions as well, most notably WebDeveloper Toolbar. After disabling SEO Toolbar, WebDev toolbar worked again.

    I hope Aaron sees this and manages to find a fix. Currently what’s left of toolbar is only the SEOToolbar logo and everything else is blank (unclickable)

    Simply amazing toolbar!

    I’ve been using Google Toolbar, then SEOQuake but this easily replaces them for me.


  22. aaron wallBy aaron wall on 17 May, 2009

    Well I just realized that I forgot to follow up for those who had a question about it not working :(

    1.) The toolbar works for most people (or I would be getting lots of complaints)
    2.) The most common issue when it does not work can be fixed by following the tips here

    Can I download the SEO toolbar for IE because it’s says that it’s FF extension. I tried to download it but I’m getting error on the page

  25. eGruve.comBy on 9 June, 2009

    thanks for the tip and I am going to try it.

  26. BigTimeUps.comBy on 12 August, 2009

    If you are just starting out, the SEO toolbar can be a little intimidating. It’s like drinking from a firehouse. But like many powerful tools, once you get used to it, you can’t live without it.
