22 Must have Firefox add-ons for Bloggers (Blogging tip 1 of 22)



#1: SEO for Firefox add-on
This is the number one Firefox add-on for bloggers. It is much the same idea as other Firefox browser add-ons, but it makes a huge difference when it comes to assessing web pages.
There are several aspects that I will touch on however this post can not be exhaustive, as there are many other aspects beyond the scope of the write-up.

It makes in-depth searching a breeze. This add-on is very nifty and easy to use. The writers advice that it is toggled off and on, based on need. After installation, the button sits at the bottom of your browser screen. When you want to search for the ranking of a web page like SEOBook, all
you have to do is go to the page, then turn the toolbar on (by clicking on it in the lower part of your browser) and then right-clicking anywhere in the homepage which you have opened.
Then select SEOforfirefox>Look up this page. The result is an array of values including Google Pagerank, the Google Cache date, date page was written,Yahoo links, Alexa Rank, DMOZ rank and other parameters.

This tool makes it possible for a blogger to be able to quickly assess the authority of any web page and to know whether to link to it or not.


Another capability of this add-on is in the area of regular Google and yahoo searches. Ordinarily, these major search engines do not give you details of things like Keyword research, Traffic estimator for that keyword, trends for that keyword and a host of other things. It also gives you the SEO details of each of the pages in the search results.


This is the Google search page with the SEO for Firefox turned on.

Below is a video that may be more visual, but I would strongly recommend this for any and every blogger!

Hi! I found this info for quick entrecard dropping on the sports dollar. This is if you want to be quick and I always click those who have dropped on me first and try to read some of the sites and comment but again if you are looking to move fast here you go-

I think we're all into this Entrecard thing and not really sure where it is going to take us right? We click and click and drop and drop and never really see much. It may get you some traffic, but is it really the kind of traffic anyone wants? Talk about screwing up your Google Analytics with an average pageview time of 2 seconds?

Either way, we are still obsessed at this point and think that raising the number of credits to advertise on our blog is going to mean something special! Maybe some day.

Until then, here is a quick tip to help you dominate Entrecard and not waste hours a day trying to build up your credits and stats.

First off, you need Mozilla Firefox to do this. IE7 could be considered the worst program on the face of the Earth.

The main trick here is to use Firefox's tab'd browsing with shortcuts to whip through the Entrecarding process. Start with a category that has 40-50 blogs in it total like 'Books.' Begin at the top with the first blog and right click "Open in new tab." Do this for the first 2 rows which should give you 11 total tabs open including your main Entrecard tab.

Now make sure you start with your second tab and it's time to fly through these!

Use CTRL+TAB to go from tab to tab and click on the link Entrecard provides you to their blog. Once all of the tabs load the individuals sites you use CTRL+TAB again to tab through each blog while dropping. Once you have dropped your card you can hit CTRL+W to close the tab to clear up space!

Your Entrecard List:

1. Open a small campaign
2. Right click and "Open in new tab" the first 2 rows of the campaign
3. CTRL+ TAB through each to click on the link to the blog's site
4. CTRL+TAB through again while dropping your cards
5. CTRL+W to close each tab after dropping

Once you get the hang of this, you can drop hundreds within minutes. Practice it up and let me know how it's working!
