Bit clunky if you don't customize it, especially if you have your search engines set to display 100 results per page. Other than that this is an invaluable tool.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.3).
Very Useful! Rated 3 out of 5 stars
This extension is invaluable for anyone who is serious about search engine optimization.
While I do agree that the AdsSpy "feature" is intrusive, those boycotting this extension purely because of it are being ridiculous. It literally takes less than five seconds to disable it.
My only other qualm with this extension is the "ad block" that it displays before the search results. Normally this wouldn't be too bad, only it loads *after* the rest of the content on the search page. This means that if you click on the top search result before the page finishes loading you'll actually be clicking on their ad. Rather clever coding, but pretty f-ing obnoxious!
The good news is that this is extension is released under the GNU public license (according to sq_main.js) -- which means you are completely free to edit out the ads. It only takes a few minutes to comment out the pertinent sections (it's in seoquake-2.1.3.xpi\chrome\seoquake.jar\content\plugins\base.js)
You can find a pre-made ad free version here: http://gaea.chaosnet.org/storage/seoquake-2.1.3.No.Ads.xpi

Adspy is not "spyware." Its a tool for the user, to view adsense accounts. If you don't like it - turn it off! Otherwise, I think SEOQuake is an essential tool for SEO work. Great job guys@This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.3).
I was going to... Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I was going to try this out until I read the negative reviews. I was going to give the developer the benefit of the doubt until I read his replies to the valid concerns that people have.
Copping an attitude and being sarcastic with your users will only serve to drive away potential income, my friend. I will not be installing your toolbar, so you will not be generating any income from me. Whether these people are right or wrong, you lost a potential source of income because of the way you treated them.
gut tool but many queries Rated 3 out of 5 stars
we had a problem in the company with seoquake. it sends a lot of google requests and if serveral people in the company are using this tool google will block youThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.3).
includes ADSENSE SPY! Rated 1 out of 5 stars
i agree with some of the reviews below that it collects all adsense data PID of all seoquake users and sells the information on ADSPY.
The adsense PID information is available to all who for a fee.
i removed it from my browsers. too bad. good plugin gone bad. The developer does not seem to take the privacy of users of seoquake quite seriously. I can see a lot of disappointed webmasters who are now beginning to diss this plugin.
I hope to see a similar plugin from a different developer in the future who will not include an ADSPY service.
Regards to all.

Hey man. Why do you write this using anonymous account?
Anyone can easily disable SQ or AdsSpy by 1 click on SQ icon in statusbar (left or right).
We do not sell any info to adsspy because we DO NOT collect any info about you....
This does NOT affect your privacy in any way.

"Copping an attitude and being sarcastic with your users will only serve to drive away potential income, my friend. Whether these people are right or wrong, you lost a potential source of income because of the way you treated them."
There are other alternatives out there -- for example SEOmoz offers some fabulous tools for free on their website, SEORank is a perfectly ethical FireFox SEO plugin (and their developers don't behave so childishly when faced with legitimate concerns).
Note to users considering this plugin -- pay attention to how these developers behave. Unethical plugin "features" and a confrontational attitude when presented with concerns...
Not Good Business.
You easily disable adsspy -just right-click on SQ icon in status bar. :(
Also you can disable SeoQuake by 1 click on its icon in statusbar.
Why do you write it from fake account?
Very nice tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It's very good tools for SEO webmasters.
I use it about past 4-5 month and very happy.
Many "hand work" make SeoQuake for me.
About spyware. I try see source code - this opened, nothing about spyware. This pluggin use AdSpy.com. This is legitime software without any spyware or tojans.
Very useful SEO Plugin Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thanks to developers. You make very suitable and useful plugin for SEO guys. Make it's better!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.2).
Thumbs Up Rated 4 out of 5 stars
The add-on has a number of benefits for any one within SEO, but must keep a keen eye on not relying on it too much.
Yes, it injects its ad into the SERPs (an annoyance imo), but the benefit I get for quickly seeing nofollows, PR, indices, etc. outweigh a minor annoyance that I can just click off when I do not need to use it.
As previously stated, be careful on setting the "onload" ability as you will likely get blocked from Google and evidently Google does not like you even often checking the cache dates as well.
Avoid those areas and the program will work well with the plugins.
Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Very intrusive program. Inserts its' own ads into google results. very intrusive and turning off all ad related settings and restarting firefox has no effect. SEOQuake still serves up their own ads on top of your Google results page.
Best considered adware/malware. DO NOT INSTALL.
Try to activate brain.sys in your head
Can you send me screenshots?
Or may be you don't understand WHAT exactly SQ is?
We don't turn off ANY scripts.
You should just deactivate SQ when you don't need it.

injects ads into google resultsThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.0).
Stop it, please.
Hey man. I'm really tired fom your spam.
You don't even understand what seoquake is.
So, please uninstall it from your computer, make your own plugin and work with it.
I can't see any details from you. only spam. please read the addon policy. and if you don't know 40000 people use it everyday.

This add-on is dangerous! Google may block you, as written at http://www.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=86640&topic=&useful=1&expand_useful=1&#helpful
"Sending automated queries of any sort to Google is against our Terms of Service [...] Note that "sending automated queries" includes, among other things [...] using any software which sends queries to Google to determine how a website or webpage "ranks" on Google for various queries;"
Google threw me out (= every search resulted in a 403 error page) after a few minutes of using this add-on
Think again, please.
Google may block you when you perform too much querries to it. So, please set - "load parameters by request" or change your ip, use proxys and clear your coockies. or disable seoquake when you surfing on web for fun, not for work.

Becareful about saying yes to additional programs that pop off after saying yes to seoquake because although the add on works great, I added these four other programs it offered and now my google search thinks I'm a bot. DammitThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.0).
You should know that this toolbar is showing you google PR - so it must use google to get the value.
Just set - show parameters by request.
and change yor ip. bot:-))) or disable seoquake when you don't need it...
