Ever found yourself needing easy access to your favorite SEO toolbar, only to realize you're without your desktop or regular computing platform and stuck with your somewhat clumsy mobile device?
I'm going to show you how to fix this, and make your mobile platform a totally viable SEO toolkit.
If you're anything like me, you'll find yourself in need of things like:
- Google PageRank
- Number of indexed pages in Google
- Number of indexed pages in Yahoo
- Domain historical data (using DomainTools)
- Alexa data
- W3C validator
- Wayback Machine historical data
- Yahoo links to URL
- Yahoo links to domain
- MajesticSEO data
- Open Site Explorer data
All of which, by the end of this article, will be one click away from your phone.
No, you aren't going to need to download some third party software or anything from me to do this. All you need is this crazy little invention called bookmarks. You still use them, right?
For example, say we're currently on mattcutts.com and need to look up some information about the website. Within two clicks, I now have access to all of this data by using my custom built bookmarks file (which you can easily import into your browser or phone and sync it across).
I've tested this out on iPhones (works great) and Android devices with bookmark syncing.
The bookmarks download file is here: Bookmarks.html. Just import it into your Firefox, Opera, or Safari, sync it with your device, and you're on your way.
Alternatively, if you don't feel comfortable importing the bookmarks, just pick and choose these links below and add them yourself!
- Force Google US
- Load in Popurius
- Load in MajesticSEO
- Load in DomainTools
- Load in Alexa
- Load in Wayback Archive
- W3C Validate
- G # of indexed pages
- Y! site:domain
- OSE Links to URL
- OSE Links to Domain
- OSE Linking Domains to Root
- OSE URL Anchor Text
- Y! Links to URL
- Y! Links to Domain
- PR History
I use this daily, more often than not when I'm out at lunch waiting on an order, or brainstorming up a potential new venture and checking out the competition while in bed. Work never stops right? This will help you work even more.
