Another SEO for Firefox Update

I just updated SEO for Firefox again. Now it numbers the search results, and it allows you to sort the results by any of the selected variables. I didn't want the sorting to be obtrusive, so you have to right click on the search results, scroll over SEO for Firefox, then scroll over sort on the submenu and click the variable you want to sort by. The sorting works best at digging deeply if you have your results set to show 100 search results per page. To show 100 search results on Google you would add &num=100 to the address bar of the search result.

A few ways to use the sort feature:

  • find the most recently cached pages

  • find the oldest sites for purchasing advertising on them
  • find the most important internal pages on a site to get a link from. For example, search for topic, and sort by PageRank, .edu page links, etc.
  • etc etc etc

When I do a Google search with your tool active I get a popup window saying "Internal Error: Replace URL not a function." and all the results under each search show question marks instead of numbers.

Excellent feature Aaron - Many thanks!

I'd be looking at an option to creating a spreadsheet with all the details - in the next update.

What do you think?

Great new function, Aaron.

One snag: the Technorati pings seem to be maxing out the API's daily limit. Any chance you could add an Options field to input a unique API key?

Thanks Aaron. SEO for Firefox has easily been my favorite seo extension for the browser since you first released it. It's great for competitive analysis and general seo research.

Thanks again for releasing it and continuing to improve it. The new sort feature should prove very useful

Been waiting a LONG time for something like this. Was going to write a dedicated extension, but now.... well now I don't have to.

Thanks Aaron!

Dear Aaron,
have downloded your seo and todays update but unfortunately get no results. Also the seo toggle at bottom right does not switch from grey(off) to lighted (on) just stays lighted, have firefox 2.00.3. Any thoughts on these troubles...........thanks Dean

Great tool. This will really help analyze PR, cached date, and help me figure out how to get past some of the competitors that are mainly ahead because of time. Thanks.

Usually I use different SEO extensions for Firefox.
Just tried last version of seobook.
What can I say?
For sure this option if very useful, but if I need to sort search results several times (for different parameters) I have to go to contextual menu each time.
For example in Seoquake extension this feature is more comfortable to use. I can press arrow near the search parameter and after that Search results sorted immediately (see example page here:
