Top 10 SEO Firefox Plugins

I’m often surprised how often I talk to aspiring SEOs only to find out they aren’t taking advantage of the plethora of SEO Firefox plugins that exist at their disposal. Not only that, these plugins, when explained correctly, can often answer a handful of client questions freeing you up to do what you do best – optimize their site. So, with the above in mind, here’s my list of top 10 Firefox plugins for SEO:
