SEO Status Pagerank/Alexa Toolbar
The SEO Status PageRank / Alexa Toolbar is:
* Very fast
* Will improve Alexa rank for visited sites
It shows the PR and Alexa rank for every website visited right on the button itself.
Unlike other popular extensions that bog down the Chrome browser, the SEO Status Toolbar is the fastest and most light-weight Page Rank extension that I’ve seen. It was written to be lightening fast and very simple. It WILL NOT slow down the loading of a website as it calculates the data on a seperate thread from the main browser. The PageRank and Alexa rank do not rely on a third-party website to gather its data, but retrieves it from Google and Alexa directly. When the button is clicked, it shows more data such as an Alexa traffic graph, ranking number, and useful tools for the avid webmaster.
Displays the Google PageRank, Alexa rank and other SEO parameters of any webpage, highlights nofollow links, text density, check and compare urls.
If you click the icon in the a tab that opened a web page, it shows the IP address of current web site, locate the IP geolocation on the map. If you click the icon in a blank tab, it shows your current IP address. This extension is great for SEO research and web developers.
