Google Chrome is the second most used browser in the world and has an incredible arsenal when it comes to extensions. It is an amazing feat to sift through them all so let us save you time with this collection of Chrome SEO Extensions we use everyday.
1. Open SEO Stats
Great for quickly spying on competitors, benchmarking your own site and many other uses, I probably use this extension 10 times a day if not more. In one click you can see a variety of ranking statistics including, Alexa Trafric Rank and Google Page Rank among others. Want to see how your website speed compares, you can check that as well. However, one of my favourite functions is the in-extension BuiltWith link. Like a website and want to see what platform it’s built on? This can tell you.
2. Tag Assistant (by Google)
Not sure the Google Analytics code you just pasted is working correctly? Here’s your extension. Tag Assistant will help you verify if you’ve installed your various Google tags correctly. Check for Analytics, AdWords Conversion Tracking, Google Tag Manager and more.
3. Note Anywhere
Fairly new to my extension bar is Note Anywhere. If you’re not using Chrome, this may be enough to make you change your browser. Note Anywhere allows you to put sticky notes anywhere on any web page you want. The notes get saved. So paste a note on a page, close your browser and visit the page in a week…..your note will still be there. This isn’t necessarily for SEO, however I use it for writing down new keywords I want to target or any thoughts I’m soon to forget.
4. META SEO Inspector
Very bare bones and nothing fancy, this is my go to extension when looking at meta data like Page Titles and Descriptions. Best little feature is that it tells you your title and description character count.
Mozbar is a great one-stop-shop for streamlining your SEO while in page. Mozbar allows you to view social metrics, preview markup, expose page elements as well as apply custom searches by search engine, country or city. The down side, the free version has somewhat limited functionality. Full access requires a Moz Pro Account, which costs $99 per month, which will give you access to not only to MozBar’s full features, but Moz’s entire line of tools.Though, the free version can still supply you with a lot of needed information all in one place.
