Default Page Strength

I've heard the term "page rank" but this one was new to me. "Page Strength" apparently uses several factors to give your page a "strength." I tested it on several of my own domains, as well as some of the more popular ones. It seems useful.

Kudos all around because smallbusinessbrief.com as well as smallbiztrends.com have an overall page strength 6 of 10. That's impressive!!

This is what they say...
  • The Relative Importance/Visibility of a Webpage
  • The Potential Strength/Ability of a Page to Rank in the Search Engines
  • Data on Popularity, Links & Mentions of the Page Across the Web
  • The tool is designed to satisfy the curiosity of webmasters, surfers and web marketing professionals seeking a better metric to quickly assess a site/page's relative importance and visibility.

A crawlable site, quality content and some links, what else do you need

PageStrength is a Mozilla/Firefox "extension", as you describe. (Not available for Internet Explorer, et al.) I include it in my SEO research/analysis because it provides a different perspective on much of the same data I can get using other tools, like Alexa, Google and MarketLeap.com.

Lightbulb Other Cool Tools

I'm a big fan of the guys at SEOMoz, I spend a fair amount of time (perhaps too much) reading through their resources.

And, I love their tools. They have another one which will do a an assessment of how competitive a given phrase is which is pretty handy based on a lot of the same data for PageStrength.

There's another Firefox extension I like a lot from Aaron Wall at SEOBook which actually inserts various ranking data right into the Google and Yahoo SERP you can see IBL, DMOZ, Wikipedia and a bunch of other stats similar to those in the PageStrength tool.

As a newbie I can't link so: tools.seobook.com/firefox/seo-for-firefox.html.

And then finally, there's one from a company called Quirk which gives Google and Alexa persistently in the status bar of Firefox with a number of other analysis tools which I also have installed: quirk.biz/searchstatus

I could never find one though that worked for my target client - not many small business clients want to go to a bunch of different sites or install strange things.

So, instead of continuing to direct people to Marketeap, Google and Alexa I commissioned a tool that combined them all plus a DMOZ query and posted it on my site.
