I consider you have already read my blog post in which I have mentioned about the chrome extensions I use every day. MOZ chrome extension was in the list as well and you can see screenshot of the same out there in that post but now this extension is upgraded to a new look. The new upgraded MOZ extension for chrome is indeed great for all website/blog owners. It shows you almost every necessary details of your blog.
Let’s have a look on this extension as how it works and what all it shows about websites:
I hope you have already installed the Moz extension in your chrome browser. If it is installed, you can see it where other extensions are showing.
You can ON and OFF this particular extension anytime just by clicking on it. When it is colored, it is ON and if it shows Black then it is OFF. It looks like this in OFF state:
When it is ON and you open any website in your chrome browser you will see this tool’s preview as shown in screenshot. I have Opened Wikipedia.org and it is showing the details about it. I have marked it in red.
If you perform a search query in Google.com then can see SERP overlay like shown in given screenshot below in which it shows the details of each search result.
Note:I have marked each option as A, B, C in the screenshot below so that I can make it more readable to readers without any confusion.
Now, Let’s get into the details of this amazing extension:
A – Page Analysis –It show all the information of page opened in the browser such as meta tags, H1, H2, URL, text and other details. It has different tabs, “On-page element”, “General Attributes”, “Inbound links”, “Mark up” and “HTTP Status”.
(i) On-page element
After seeing the screenshot above you might have an idea as what this option is all about and what details it shows about the current page.
(ii) General Attributes
This option states about the Meta information, canonical tag load time etc. which you can see in above screenshot.
(iii) Inbound links
As the name says, it gives the information about the backlinks, Moz rank, and page authority as shown in above screenshot.
(iv) Mark up
This option shows authorship and other information as you can see in the above screenshot. However, On the wikipedia’s home page there is no authorship found so it shows like this.
(v) HTTP Status
This option tells you if the page has been redirected from anywhere else or not. Current status of the page shows that it is not redirected but when you open a webpage that redirects to the final page, it will show the status code of redirection.
This shows that the opened page was redirected from wikipedia.com and the redirection status is 301 means permanently moved.
B – Highlight Links: This option highlights the links with different color for followed links, nofollowed links, internal links, External links or any particular text you want to highlight. See the screenshot for more details:
The colours are specified for the different options, as you click on the desired one it will mark those links with your selected option. Suppose if you turn on the Followed, then it will mark all the followed links on the page as Green.
C – PA(Page Authority): This shows the page authority of the web page opened currently. PA is one of the metric of MOZ.
Definition of PA by wikipedia: Page Authority is Moz’s calculated metric for how well a given webpage is likely to rank in Google.com’s search results. It is based off data from the Mozscape web index and includes link counts, MozRank, MozTrust, and dozens of other factors.
D – mR(MozRank): This shows the Moz rank which is one of measures of MOZ.
Definition of MozRank by Wikipedia: MozRank represents a link popularity score. It reflects the importance of any given web page on the Internet. Pages earn MozRank by the number and quality of other pages that link to them. The higher the quality of the incoming links, the higher the MozRank.
E – Links: This shows how many backlinks that particular web page has.
F – Root Domain: This tells the Domain authority of the website currently opened. No matter which page of the website is opened. This option always shows the root domain’s authority.
Definition of DA by Wikipedia: Domain Authority (DA) is a website metric developed by Moz. It is one of the most important numbers known to SEOs. The greater your DA, the more likely you are to have strong traffic and high rank.
G, H, I – Facebook, Twitter , Google Plus: This option shows how many times that particular webpage has been shared over FB, twitter and G+ respectively.
J – Log in to analytics: This tells to log in on MoZ to check out full analytics.
K – help: As the name suggests, It is there to help you. When you click on that you will see:
Then you can click on the links as per you need.
L – Tools and setting: This simply opens the tools and settings of this cool extension from where you can check to show more option. Also, it tells you the keyboard shortcuts to ON, OFF this tool and also provides you the links of more Moz Products. See below for better understanding:
That’s all from my side on this cool chrome extension with amazing look. I am in love with the new look of this extension and hence I started using it all the time. Hope you like this post.
