By | August 15, 2019

With this video tutorial, we’ll introduce
you to SEOquake and all of its benefits to digital marketers. You’ll see why over 300,000
people in the SEO industry use our handy little tool in their browsers everyday. In this video, you’ll learn how to install
the SEOquake browser plugin. You can analyze a search engine results page using the plugin.
And you can also review all of our SEO metrics with the SEOquake reports. SEOquake is a simple browser plugin that provides
users with quick access to a handful of SEO metrics for any page on the internet. The
plugin can be embedded on search engine result pages. Once installed, the browser plugin should
appear with an icon beside your address bar. When the plugin is active, it will be colorized.
In this menu, you will be able to navigate to any of the reports pulled by SEOquake,
and select which parameters you wanted to analyze. To turn SEOquake on or off at any
time, simply select the gear icon and check or uncheck the “enable SEOquake” box.
Select the icon to open up the menu. To take a look at how SEOquake works on a
results page, let’s use the keyword “coffee” as an example. You’ll see that the parameters
for this link will appear below each URL, with everything from Alexa rank, to number
of indexed pages on google, to number of backlinks, and more. You can configure which parameters
to show in SERP overlay by clicking on the parameters button on the left side. These
results can also be quickly exported by clicking on “export CSV.” Remember, you can disable
or enable SEOquake simply by finding the gear icon and checking or unchecking “enable
SEOquake.” Another way to achieve this is with the new toggle gear located on the left
side of the page. If you want to just disable SERP overlay functions, SEOquake allows you
to simply uncheck the box that says “Show Overlay Features” and you will be able to
disable SERP features in Google, Yahoo, Bing, Yandex, SEMrush or all five. You are able to disable individual features
in SEOquake by going into settings and uncheck the box of your choice. Click on any of the parameter buttons to be
directed to that parameter’s individual page with more information about the web page. For example, if we click the alexa icon below
the wikipedia result, we’ll be redirected to wikipedia’s report on Or,
click on the backlinks number to get sent to the domain’s backlinks report on SEMrush. In addition to its ability to be embedded
on a SERP, SEOquake can also pull information about any web page while you’re viewing
it in your browser. To enable this feature, make sure that you’ve checked the option
for “show seobar” under the settings menu. To check this out, let’s go to Set by default at the top of the screen, the
parameter bar will appear to show the same metrics from the results page. We can see
Alexa rank, indexed pages, domain age, and other metrics. To the far right of the SEObar
you will notice a settings gear. This quick preference window will allow you to quickly
change the layout of your SEObar, as well as determine which parameters are being analyzed. Located directly before the settings gear
you will see five icons. These five icons correspond with specific reports in SEOquake.
By clicking on any of these, SEOquake will bring you directly to that full report. The Page Info section will give you the basic
information about the page, including the parameters, meta keywords and description,
link information, and a preview of the keyword density. The Diagnosis section will present you with
a brief SEO audit of the web page, showing you a listing of attributes on the page that
should be added or optimized. Review this report and take action on your site to improve
it’s health. The Internal links section will show a listing
of all the internal links to the page you’re analyzing from within its domain. See specific
parameters for each of these links like Alexa rank and how many backlinks the linking pages
have. The External links section will show a listing
of all the external links found for the page. These can be sorted by follow, no follow,
image links, text links, form links, and frames. In the Density section, you can analyze the
keyword density of all the words and short phrases found on a webpage. You’ll see the
specific number of repeats, density percentage, and prominence percentage for each word and
phrase found, which gives valuable insight into understanding the semantics and main
topics of a website or page. If you don’t want to waste your time browsing
every site individually to get this information, you can enter multiple domains at once with
our compare URLs option. You can get to this option from any web page by selecting the
SEOquake icon, then clicking on “compare urls” from the menu of the pop-out box.
Or, if you’re already in the SEOquake interface, you can select the “compare urls/domain”
option at the top. This will take you to a page with a form where
you can enter as many URLs as you would like to analyze. Add one per line and hit “process
URLs” once you have finished. In this form you can check up to 1,000 links at once. You can always show or hide any of the parameters
within SEOquake through the preferences section. You can customize the interface to pull only
the information you are most interested in for your research. Another application of SEOquake is identifying
nofollow links. Turn this option on in the settings menu by checking the box beside where
it says “highlight nofollow.” Once selected, any nofollow links found on web pages you’re
on will appear with a strikethrough to indicate they are nofollow. That just about sums up the basics of what
this tool can do. Have any questions or feedback? Contact us to talk about how you use SEOquake,

    Hi! Great Tutorial. But I have the following doubts:
    1. How are the Alexa ranks, Google ranks, yahoo rank, Bing Index and other ranks and indexes calculated? Is there any specific formula for these? If yes, can you provide it?
    2. What is the meaning of NoFollow and Follow?
