SEOquake is an analytic SEO tool. It’s only available on Firefox, Chrome and Opera browsers. However, its usefulness merits downloading one of them if you don’t already use them. SEO quake is a toolbar which you can install in seconds. It gives you vital information about any blog or website you land on.
The parameters are extensive, but some of the main ones are Google Page Rank, Alexa rating, number links on Bing and Yahoo the website has, keyword density, and whether there are no-follow links/do-follow links etc.

If you want to guest post or comment on a blog it’s first of all best to search the blog’s PR, popularity etc. It’s difficult to do this by merely searching on Google. I’ve downloaded the toolbar on my Chrome browser and each time I search for something on Google my search results are significantly improved and detailed. Before I even attempt to guest post on a blog I can gauge what chance my post has of going viral or stagnating. SEOquake takes the guess work and the leg work out of your research because you can see all the information right below your SERPs – and in one go!
In addition, when researching for possible guest posting opportunities with SEOquake, you get the blog’s particulars and figures in half the time and with half the effort. This enables you to be more productive – saving you time to do the important tasks of researching, writing and editing.

Many people use commenting as a way to get targeted traffic to their blogs. If you do this, you spend a lot of time reading posts so that you can come up with helpful insights and problem-serving comments. For your hard work and dedicated input, you deserve to at least to be rewarded with some clicks to your blog. Low PR and low traffic blogs will most likely not offer you this payback.
This is why it’s important to choose the right blogs on which to comment.
SEOquake is invaluable to me where this is concerned. Because this tool bar tells you the age of the blog in your SERPs, and gives you pertinent Page ranks (from which you could gauge the quality of the site), you’ll know if it’s worth commenting even before clicking on the homepage. This is a big advantage, not to be sneezed at.

If you have a little tech skill you can set up SEOquake to show you blogs that allow do-follow links in their comment love section. CommentLuv is a plugin that gives back to your readers. It allows them to leave the link to their last (or popular) blog post when they make a comment on your blog. Many blogs allow these links to be do-follow.
Think of what this can do for your back-linking campaign. You wouldn’t have to write guest posts at all – just leave great comments and let them work for you. Obviously, knowing which blogs allow the do-follow links gives you the option to comment only on them as a way to build your traffic and Internet presence.
Armed with the information and statistics, your research time on the Internet could be cut down by half. This is definitely a tool every blogger should be downloading the SEOquake now.
