After a short break I am back with a post which is about the chrome extensions which I use on daily basis in order to speed up my work. I use even a number of extension but I am sharing those only which I use on daily basis and even every hour.
These are very helpful as they save a lot of time and effort which help me to increase productivity in my work.
Here is the list of chrome extensions I use everyday to increase my productivity
Awesome Screenshot Extension
I am a fan of using Google Chrome as my browser everywhere either on my laptop, my office PC or on my phone. As like firefox has add-ons to perform specific task, Chrome is supported by Extensions that make it perform specific tasks.
Awesome screenshot is one of those extensions. What we did in the past by using prtscrn button and then pasting into MS paint is now being done by this extension. Yes, this helps capturing awesome screenshots as like its name.
In this screenshot, you can see options of this extension:
- Capture Visible part of page:- If you select this option then it will capture those parts of the page which are visible.
- Capture selected area: This option lets you select a particular area to take screenshot.
- Capture Entire page: This option lets you capture full page.
- Select a local image: This option lets you select a local image to make screenshot.
You may check out options where you can set the format of screenshots either .jpg or .png and also you can do settings for shortcuts.
This is indeed the best screen capturing tool for me. Earlier it didn’t have the option to take screenshot of local images but it had added this option as well few weeks before.
PageRank Status Extension
Being an SEO cum blogger I always need to know the page rank of different websites and blogs. There are many awesome sites where I can check page rank of a website but that is time taking and also more effort is needed there. Hence I use PR checker Extension on my chrome browser which shows the page rank of every page I open. It is a very handy tool.
Alexa Traffic Rank Extension
If you are into blogging and SEO you might know about Alexa Rank. I always curious to know about the stats of each and every website hence I do use PR checker extension as mentioned above and Alexa traffic rank extension as well. It shows all the details of the website opened in the browser without going to alexa’s site.
SEO For Chrome Extension
This Extension shows many stats about the website which is currently open in the browser such as Page indexed in various search engines, backlinks, traffic stats, Search stats, social stats, Cached, On site stuffs and domain details. But I use this Extension just for checking NoFollow links.
Click on the extension on chrome browser and tick the “Show NoFollow” option and it will highlight all the links as red which is having NoFollow attribute.
This is an extension for checking domain authority(DA) and page authority(PA). Now days, DA being considered an important metric to evaluate if the site is good hence like others I do check blogs’ and websites’ DA as well. Initially I used to check on opensiteexplorer.org or on other DA checker online tools but it was again a time consuming task so I tried to search for the extension and got this MozBar extension. Get more details here.
It shows DA, PA and mozrank(mR) for each site you open in the browser like this:-
Even, If you have enabled the option of “search overlay” then it shows DA and PA for each site in SERPs like this:-
These are the Chrome Extensions I use on daily basis. I hope you would also love them. Let me know your views on this and also share the extensions you use on daily basis.
