Default SEO extension for Firefox

Aaron Wall of SEObook has released a new Firefox extension with a good range of SEO tools, very useful for analysing your own and your competitors' sites. It needs a little configuring but already appears a useful addition to the SEO arsenal, as it puts a lot of manual processes into a single automated tool.

Thanks Kelvyn: looks useful. And I was also prompted to upgrade Fangs, which I hadn't noticed was now in a compatible version.

What does Fangs do? (I had some fanciful ideas, but then thought I would just ask!)

Gives you a (crude) simulation of screen reader output, list of links, and list of headings in the page

Is Aaron Wall's electronic book worth $79? I figure you would know, and have the book.

No idea. I certainly would not buy a book on SEO as it is a rapidly changing arena. To "do" SEO you need input from multiple "live" sources, including your own analyses, an ability to interpret the most relevant features from all sources and to put those features into practice in a way that will not cause collateral damage. Otherwise known as witchcraft.
