Is there a simple Chrome Extension that allows you to check a web page’s coding and other SEO elements? You betcha »
Answer by Jason Darrell on Quora to “Are there any SEO tools to check if a web page is using some hidden text trick (CSS, display hidden, etc.)?“:
Here’s a neat little tool to check what’s going on in the background of a webpage.
It’s a simple extension, which lives in the Chrome browser:(« link includes download link on Chrome Webstore).
It’s fast, responsive and gives you a ton of information with the click of a button:
As you can tell by the patched together screenshots, I’ve had to scroll down to get all the info in one image.
The screenshots themselves contain information about the Hootsuite dashboard. Mine’s the Pro version, so information may differ from the standard dash in the free tool. It could also differ, depending upon which apps you have installed in Hootsuite, I guess.
In addition to the page coding, there’s a whole host of sites listed in the second “online tools” tab that will enable you to test for SEO specifics:
There’s everything from Ripples for signals about a URL shared on Google+ to Wayback Machine to Keyword Density Analyzer to Copyscape Premium – the list of web page information you can check through these third party sites is quite exhaustive.
The third ‘options‘ tab simply enables you to highlight any nofollow links pink.
For bulk data of this nature, you’d want a robust tool that allows you to rip the URL information in bulk. But if you’re interested in coding elements on a specific web page, there’s little more all-encompassing than this natty little Chrome extension.
