SEO Quake isn’t sorting by PageRank

A while ago I discovered a great Firefox plugin called SEOQuake. I wrote an article about how to use SEO Quake to find high pagerank sites and it’s become one of the most popular articles on my site.SEOQUake is broken

But lately, I’ve been having some trouble with SEOQuake.

It still does the basics well – it’ll show you a site’s pagerank, links to the domain etc. But it’s stopped sorting by pagerank.

One of the ways I like to use SEOQuake is outlined in my old blog post. I like to search in Google for sites on a topic (or pages in YouTube), and then sort the results by pagerank so I’m able to see all the high pagerank sites. I can then click on each link and leave a comment.

Lately, SEOQuake has stopped sorting by pagerank and I’ve noticed more people landing on my site because they’ve found my old article, and they’re looking for answers.

I sent an email off to the SEOQuake folks, and here’s their reply:

This is a known issue, due to a recent change Google has made in its results display pages.  We are working on a fix, and will have it out in the near future as an update.

It seems to be a problem with the way Google displays its results. Hopefully there’s a fix and an update soon, because this is one of the main features I love about SEOQuake.

I’ll keep you posted on when an update occurs. In the meantime, if you know of any other plugins that enable us to search by pagerank, leave a comment and let me know.

UPDATE : 23 December 2011. There’s an updated version of SeoQuake available and the problem is fixed! We can search by pagerank again.

    The reason PrRis not showing up is because the actual script has changed for reading the page ranks. There is a resource I once used to read the new script but I forgot where it is, sorry… I can just tell you for sure that the actual script for reading the rank has changed and I am actually flabbergasted that these high profile apps haven’t picked up on it and gone and changed the script in their apps.

    Well i also noticed that! lately I’ve been into using Seoquake for my link prospecting! Bad news is that PR isn’t loading, or sometimes Seoquake do not work on my browser!

      Make sure you’re using the latest version of SeoQuake – it does seem to be fixed now. Probably only until Google changes their API again!

      Glad you like SEOQuake. I’d forgotton about the csv export – I tend to use Market Samurai for most of my keyword research.

      Thanks for the reminder.

    It sounds like the SEO Quake developers are actually mindful of their users and are actively attempting to keep us all satisfied. The same can’t be said for a lot of the bigger, fruit-themed developers out there so I say, ‘good on you, SEO Quake team!’
