DigMyLink is a brand new Internal Linking Tool / Reporting Tool that I have designed in my spare time over the past year or so. I wrote it as a way to quickly over view any site to see ways to improve web site search engine rankings.
DigMyLink analyzes how you link to your internal pages. It is a Firefox Plugin and installs very easily. Simply download to your computer and drag it into the Firefox window.
Sorry An Update: The latest version of FF has broken the functionality – we are working on a new version stay tuned. In the meantime use this linking tool.
DigMyLink reports the URL, Title, Description and Content of any link as you hover over it. Is supports any page you happen to be on. It does this by reading into the pages info without actually browsing to the actual page with little or no wait time.
Internal links are highlighted in green. Hover over your links and a info window will appear. External links are ignored by DigMyLink and are shown in orange.
Note: To temporarily turn off DigMyLink go to lower right corner and select Off/On. To turn it off/on from session to session use the Tools | Addons | Disable option in Firefox menu.
DigmyLink will provide a great way for SEO’s and Webmasters to verify that you internal links and anchor text actually match the resulting pages Title. Description and Content. This is one of the key factors to what makes a great anchor link. Read how to Analyze Keywords in anchor text
