SEOquake offers lots of fantastic tools and they are all free!
Let’s see what these are and how they work:
When you type in a URL in your browser’s address bar, the SEObar will automatically appear and show you data for different parameters.
A few examples of data that will be shown are:
- Facebook likes
- Number of pages indexed in Google
- Alexa rank
- SEMrush rank
You can choose which parameters you want to see on the SEObar by clicking on the Settings gear, located on the far right of the bar:
The Panel will allow you to see the same parameters shown on SEObar but in a different layout.
All you have to do is click on the SEOquake extension logo and the Panel will appear:
Usually, when you have done your keyword research, you would enter this in Google to see who your competitors are.
Once you have done that, you would then analyse your competitors one by one.t
The SERP Overlay eliminates the need of doing these tasks separately, because when you Google a keyword, the SERP Overlay will show you the parameters associated with each listing.
A side bar will also appear and this can be used to sort and export your results:
Simply type a keyword in Google and the SERP Overlay will automatically appear with all the data.
The keyword difficulty will also be shown below the Google search bar and this will allow you to estimate how difficult it would be to beat your competitors by using that keyword.
Page SEO Audit
Check if your website is presenting any errors such as missing headings, having a title that is too long, missing the meta description and so on.
Enter the URL in the browser’s search bar, click on the SEOquake icon and then on the “Diagnosis” tab.
The “Diagnosis” page will open in a separate tab and will show you data broken into three different sections:
1. Page Analysis: Analyse areas of your page such as whether there are enough characters within your URL, your title tags or your meta descriptions.
2. Mobile Compliance: Check if your website loads fast enough on mobile devices and if the page has a typical viewport meta tag value compatible with most of mobile browsers.
3. Site Compliance: This will check things such as the presence of XML Sitemaps, Robots.txt file, language declarations, favicon images and so on.
This is located under the “Density” tab and will show all the keywords found under the specific landing page.
Keywords are sorted by “Repeats” and for each keyword, you will be able to see data such as density, prominence and how many 1-word keywords, 2-word keywords and so on are present in the page.
Click on the “Internal” and “External” tabs to view how many links are present on the given page.
A list of links will be shown, together with the anchor text and various parameters.
You can export the data in CSV format.
Compare URLs Tool
Click on the “Compare URLs/Domains” tab, enter the list of URLs you wish to compare and hit “Process URLs”.
A new tab will open up and will show you a parameters comparison for the chosen URLs.
