The Cache information will give you whether Google indexes the page or not. If not indexed yet, you will see N/A.
If it is indexed, you will see the time and link to the cached page.
There you can see, how Google has viewed your content.
This is one more essential tool which is primary with Wayback machine.
People who are not aware of Wayback machine, I am once again explaining it here.
Wayback machine is a web Archive Machine which stores the websites. Not all the website will be stored in Wayback Machine.
Sites who have good traffic and authority will be saved here.
Because, if the site is visible to the user and have backlinks, then only Wayback machine can find the site.
Once your site is archived there, They Wayback machine copy your site every time you make the change on the site.
It will help you to see the historical changes of websites.
You might ask what the use of Wayback machine other than seeing the past site changes is.
For you people, Brian Dean wrote a fantastic article on his Skyscraper technique which teaches you how to use the Wayback machine for writing authority content.
It provides you the IP and hosting location, etc. You can get more information by clicking on the arrow link. It will show you the domain owner details.
This tool will show you how the search engines index many pages of your website. In this list, Google always has high number pages indexed ( Of course, they are big and leader in the Internet industry.)

This tool connects you to the Moz Backlink checker tool where you can see the backlinks to your site.
The good thing about Moz is, it will show you the spam score for each links coming to your site. You can also spy your competitor with this tool.
The page info extracts your Meta Data details and Header tags details. You can see how many Header tags you have on the page.
It shows you what all the external links you have on that page are. It also shows whether it is Nofollow or Dofollow.
Now you can add no-follow tags to any of the links to which you don't want to pass the link juice.
Note: Don't make all the links Nofollow. Link building is good when you do it by following the give and take policy.
If you don't give link juice, then think how others will pass link juice from their site to yours.
Webmasters are smart enough identify you by going through the site. So, keep your smartness away for some time while doing link building.
Also, only add Dofollow link for authority content which can be useful for your readers.

2. Discussion button
You can belong to any niche. You can be a seller, writer, webmaster, and an analyst. The discussion button can help everyone.
Once, Google had the option to find out discussions on the web.

You can use that to identify user requirements, complaints, why they love it, why they hate it, etc. Here "it" can be the topic, product or any object.
After some time, the discussion button was removed by Google.
Now Google shows results like this screenshot.
But still, you can get the same function with this extension. All it does is, just adding google dark codes after that topic.
