The extension will display a pop-up box on any page based on how you configure the extension, for example, it will pop-up on any page that has the meta robots set to noindex/nofollow.
This is how the settings look.
The extension will show you if the rel canonical tag in the page source code matches the URL being shown in the web browser. If it matches the icon displays grey and if it doesn't match the icon displays blue.
Canonical tag matches the URL
Canonical tag does not match the URL
The plugin does exactly as the names suggest and show the user the redirect path used to get to the final URL.
Helpful as shows the user if the redirect is 301 or 302.
Can also be used to show header status codes such as normal 200 OK status and 404 Error status.
The plugin will check all the links on the page and show you which links are broken.
Great for finding where the broken link is on the page and great for finding your link is placed within page content.
This extension offers a whole host of information and is great for finding out pretty much anything you want to know with regards to SEO for the website you're looking at.
Information can be obtained specific to the page but you can also find out domain specific data too.
One of our favourite features is the Google cache check.
SEO Quake is a great extension but it must be configured correctly otherwise, it won't be long before you are getting captcha requests from Google, this is because by default the extension is set to Load parameters on page load.
Avoid any captcha issues but setting all Load parameters to "By request"
We really like the Wappalyzer extension because is allows you to quickly and easily see all the technologies that are running on websites it will show information on
- web servers
- content management systems
- e-commerce platforms
- analytics tools
- programming languages
Much of the information can be found in other extensions but the great thing about Wappalyzer is it's done with one click of a button and it consistently accurate
