Using SEOQuake as a Chrome add-on for SEO research and keyword research is quick and simple. I use it all the time, and I love the answers it gives me as I’m researching a site’s SEO status. But how do you understand the SEOQuake abbreviations? There are so many, and not all are obvious.
In some cases, you may think you know what the abbreviations are, but you’re not exactly sure how SEOQuake applies them in each instance.
For example, does the Trust Score apply to the specific page or the entire site? (It applies to the entire site.) Or, does the age descriptor apply to the page or site? (It applies to the page.) Also, where does SEOQuake get its data from? (The answer, in most cases, is SEMRush.)
