I hope you are one of those people on the planet who are in love with Chrome.
Although it takes a lot of memory (I know ;)) of your operating systems, but this can be compromised when you know you are getting more out of it.
I am a Mac user, but I never use Safari.
I tried to switch to Safari browser but failed, because I was not getting that much smooth experience in Mac browser.
Three months back I started providing online coaching to help newbie bloggers. I share my screen with my students to show everything practically.
As I share my screen with my students to show everything practically, so in one class one of my students pointed my browser extensions and requested to explain each and every extension. Although I explained to them in the class, but that sharing was limited to only handful of people.
So today I decided to share all the extensions with you.
These extensions can give you more flexibility to do research, check SEO, add productivity, and too many other things.
So I recommend checking the extension at least once if you are not using it.
Here are those 10 Chrome Extensions
#1. SEO Quake Lite
This is the only extension I am using for more than three years. I found this extension in early days of my blogging, which ultimately helped me to know more about any website quickly.
This extension is available for Chrome, Opera, and Safari.
This extension gives you a small bar at the bottom-right of your browser, which shows Alexa Rank and PageRank of any website you open.
By clicking on the setting tab, you can enable highlight no-follow feature, which will help you to find no follow links on any website.
This extension sends only a few queries to search engines, so it is one of the safest extension to use with your Chrome browser.
#2. Eye Dropper
I am big fan of color psychology; that's why I am very selective in colors,
Either it's an image in my blog post, my navigation menu, my right sidebar or any element on my blog, I select the colors very carefully.
This small extension helps me to pick any color code from any website by just hovering the mouse on the color.
Once you click on the target color, it'll pick ASCII code, BGR code and other color codes to make things easier.
If you are into web design or very selective in the colors of your blog, this extension is highly recommended.
This is a very handy extension to take a screenshot from your browser and edit them as per your requirements.
Using this extension you can take screenshot of:
- Whole page
- Visible page
- Selected area
This extension lets you crop the image, blur some part, highlight anything, and write any text on the image.
After taking the screenshot, either you can save it in your computer or upload it on the awesome screenshot server to share directly with your friends.
I cannot imagine life of a blogger without Pocket app.
This small app helped me a lot to learn many new things from the experts.
This is a bookmarking app that saves the article on their server.
Let's say you are reading an article, and get interrupted in between either by a friend or a family member.
The chances are, you are never going to read that article again because you forget what you were doing.
If you are a Pocket user, you can save that article in your Pocket account and read it later.
This app synchronizes with iPhone, Android, and other operating systems, which means you can read that article on any device, anywhere.
I recommend this app if you are an avid reader.
I don't know why they have given such a killer extension at free of cost.
Such a tremendous extension to do research about any website.
If you are into affiliate marketing, CPA, or online marketing, you know the importance of studying your competitor's website.
Follow gives you an in-depth information about any website, like number of monthly visitors, traffic countries, ranking keywords, Ads in Google, ads copies, competitors and too many other metrics.
Start using it now and thank me later. 😉
This is a paid extension that help you to generate killer titles for your blog posts.
This extension has some predefined templates to fit your keywords into it.
I entered the keyword blogging, and it generated some of the top title ideas for me.
I started using this extension just two months back, but it looks like I would never be able to stop using it.
My educational background is from government schools where we studied till 12th standard in Hindi only, so writing in English is not my cup of tea.
So I can say – this extension is a life saver for me.
This helps me to find writing mistakes in real time. It helps to correct spell mistakes, suggest grammatical changes and a lot of other awesome things to make me a better writer.
This extension will get installed in your browser so it'll track your writing anywhere in the browser.
If you love to write stuff in Microsoft doc, you can install doc extension and write flawless in the MS doc as well.
This is another paid extension that helps you to spy any website with one click.
Here is the result window when I clicked from the BloggingCage homepage.
This helps you find all the plugins installed on any WordPress theme and name of the theme that they are using.
Note: You can do an exactly same study with a free option called WP Theme Detector.
#9. Last Pass
LastPass is a one stop password saving solution. I am using paid version to have more control on my passwords. As passwords are most crucial things in the online industry so paying a little amount to secure them is worth the investment.
It encrypts all your passwords and save them with more security.
I have installed this extension on all my machines so I can access my passwords by doing login anywhere.
Note: I have enabled two-factor authentication in this extension to add a second layer of security.
If you always forget your passwords, this extension can help you to solve that issue.
I hate when ads start following me.
As a blogger you can understand what I am saying.
When we are into blogging, we get banner blindness.
We ignore almost every banner.
Many blogger ask me one question – why are you not using any ads on your blog?
I ask, do you click on any ads when you know it's a Google AdSenese ads?
Most of them replies – NO.
So using ads on a blogging niche blog will be one of the most silly things you can do.
This post is not related to blogging or SEO tips, but the extensions I shared in this article might help you to make your online life much better.
I am personally using all the extensions, so I thought about writing an article on this topic.
Do share your most favorite Chrome extension with me in the comment section. This will not only help me to find some of the helpful extensions, but my readers will also get the benefit.
Share this article with your friends and help them make their Chrome experience better.
