SEO Firefox Extension

The SEO Firefox Extension is one of the most useful online marketing tools that I’ve run across. It’s a great way to not only determine your sites’ SEO strength (based on age, number of inbound links, Alexa ranking, and other factors), but you can also snoop on your competitors based on the same factors!

You need to be using Firefox, and if you’re aren’t already, the Extension is well worth downloading the Firefox browser just to use the tool.

What are those Sublinks in the Google Results?

Wondering how you get Google to display your subpages in their search results?

(For an example, search for “starbucks” in Google.)

Here’s a full article that explains how they get created. Briefly, they seem to be created based on an algorthym that looks at the popularity of those links, and how many internal links you have pointing to those pages.

If you’re site is organized well, and you have quite a few links to subpages on your site, there is nothing that you need to know. If they are not showing up and you’d like them to be, it’s time to take a look at your site’s structure and time to start building links to those pages.
