Get Better Understanding of Google and Yahoo SERPs with Search Cloudlet

Search Cloudlet is a FireFox addon that inserts a related tag cloud into Google and Yahoo interfaces. Developed by the Russian company INTSPEI, the addon got very positive reviews on very powerful blogs and resources (check a couple of them: LifeHacker and Wired for example):

Working behind the scenes, Search Cloudlet injects a tag cloud of related words in to both Google and Yahoo search results pages. Then you can use the tag links to quickly and easily filter and refine your searches.

Search Cloudlet is reported to “work by looking at the words, sources, locations and other data in the search results to create a weighted tag cloud — the bigger the term the more frequently it pops up in the results”.

Most useful (SEO) functionality of the Search Cloudlet:

  • Tag cloud that gives you a quicker understanding of SERPs for any search term. The tag cloud might be not the most useful navigation tool but it is great for creating immediate associations with the topic. Tip: set Google to display 100 results per page and your tag cloud will get larger and more meaningful by analyzing the larger amount of data.

  • Source and Location tab (news search) or Authors tab (blog search):

For a news search there are Source Cloud and Location Cloud. These clouds can help you determine country, region or state of the found news and their publishers. For a blog search there is also the Author Cloud view.

  • Sites filter (instantly see the domains listed in the SERPs). If a domain was repeated a few times throughout the SERP, it will be displayed in a larger font.

  1. I completely agree. Search Cloudlet is great. I especially like the way you can see the results from so many dimensions and how easy it is to turn off (when you’re just in the mood for searching).

  2. Hi ann,

    Thanks for it. This addon is really great and also provide sites name which are related to tags.

  3. Ann,

    Thank you very much for your review.

    One small correction: even though we do have small presence in Russia (as well as in the USA), our core team is located in Ukraine, not in Russia.

    We will be very glad to hear from you / SEJournal readers about what other functions we should add to the Cloudlet to make it more useful.

    And welcome to follow @SearchCloudlet at Twitter ;-))

    With best regards,

  4. Nice tool.
    Enhancing search and good for brainstorming. When discussing the structure of a new site we do brain storming on keywords. This is great tool to help that.

    I think it would be great if it could be moved over the adwords instead of organic. And having a slight grey background or so might integrate it easier into the layout. A print function might be nice too. Good tool, thanks INTSPEI.

    Check out searchcloud.net too (have nothing to do with it…) . New search engine working with clouds. You search for multi-phrase terms and can weigh each on a scale 1-5. Great!

  5. This is a great tool much like wordle.net.

    It would be prudent to be mindful that the keyword cloud changes as the result set increases between 10-100 results. It doesn’t show results for subsequent SERP’s so we’re looking at a small subset of data. Competitiveness of a keyword phrase is important to consider.

    Great tool, just don’t want to misinterpret when choosing important keyword phrases for optmization…
