Opera SEO PluginIf you are into SEO (Search Engine Optimization) industry then “SEO for Firefox” add-on should be familiar for you. However, what about Opera users?

Fortunately, White Shadow managed to create one for Opera as well which is called “SEO for Opera”.

What does it do?

SEO for Opera adds a lot of useful market research information to Google/Yahoo search results, including the following for each result:

  • PR: Google PageRank. I’m sure you know what this is.
  • Age: age pulled from Archive.org, shows the first time a page was indexed by Archive.org’s spider. The theory is that if Archive.org found a page so did many of the major search engines.
  • Links: (Yahoo! linkdomain) shows a rough estimate of the total number of links pointing at a domain.
  • .edu Links: (Yahoo! .edu linkdomain ) shows a rough estimate of the total number of .edu links pointing at a domain.
  • .edu Page Link: (Yahoo! .edu link ) shows a rough estimate of the total number of .edu links pointing at a specific page.
  • .gov Links: (Yahoo! .gov linkdomain ) shows a rough estimate of the total number of .gov links pointing at a domain.
  • Page Links: (Yahoo! link) shows a rough estimate of the total number of links pointing at a page.
  • .edu Page Links: As above, but only for links from .edu domains.
  • Technorati: an estimate of the total number of links to a site from blogs.
  • Alexa: website rank based on traffic. Heavily skewed toward IM and webmaster related resources.
  • Compete.com Rank : Another site ranking based on traffic. Similar to Alexa.
  • Compete.com Uniques : Unique visitors (per month) as esitmated by Compete.com. Not very accurate.
  • Cached: (Google’s site: query) shows how many pages from a site are indexed in Google.
  • dmoz: searches the Google Directory to count the total number of pages from a site that are listed in DMOZ, and the total number of pages listed in DMOZ that reference that URL.
  • Bloglines: shows you how many people are subscribed to a particular blog via Bloglines.
  • dir.yahoo.com: is a site listed in the Yahoo! Directory or not.
  • Wikipedia : how many times the site is mentioned on Wikipedia.
  • WhoIs: makes it easy to look up the whois data for any site.
