Advanced SEO Toolbar Functions

I thought it would be worth highlighting a few of the advanced features in the SEO Toolbar. Some of the highest value ideas do not consist of looking at one data point, or boiling things down to 1 arbitrary and meaningless number (like many "professional" SEO tools do), but consist of looking at many data points across multiple sites, and hunting for inconsistencies that help you build new profitable traffic streams. Along those lines, I thought I would run through a few ideas to get your juices flowing...there are dozens more like these :)

The advanced tips are here.

This is a great tool - using it non-stop for days now. Whats the chance of adding some kind of Anchor Text analysis? It's the only missing component in my opinion.

If we do anchor text analysis it will probably be a feature that is for paying subscribers only.

How come I don't see any of the items I added when I right click and click customize?

I am not sure. It works for me.

Hi Aaron

For some reason your toolbar doesn't fit in my browser. It only fits if I spread it out across both my screens. It shows the icon and the description of the icon e.g. The Yahoo! icon followed by "Y! linkdomain:" then the result.

Is there any way to just have the icon and the result?

Aaron don't worry I found the issue.

Although "small icons" were already selected in the Customize Toolbar window, I had to select it again for it to reset.

Thanks again for such an awesome tool (will be joining your community this month btw which is exciting!)

Thanks Aaron for releasing this tool, it's now replaced my Google toolbar and offers so much more functionality.

I posted to my blog about it as well, keep up the great work!

Great toolbar with great features. Thank you very much.
I'm missed 2 features. I hope they are easy to implement an you accept them.
1. Standalone toolbar button that I can add to my buttons toolbar. The job of this button will be just Show/Hide the toolbar.
2. Ability to Filter/Disable some domains. Just editable box where we should be able to add/delete domains. The toolbar will be disabled for these domains.

1.) click on the logo to bring up the menu to turn it on or off. and you can right click above the address bar to decide to show or hide any of your toolbars
2.) the toolbar already has I don't see a need for a domain filter like that
