Web browsers improved dramatically with the introduction of Google Chrome in 2008. Extensions were first added for the Google Chrome browser.
Chrome extensions are useful tools that can be installed to enhance the web browser’s functionality. Chrome extensions are designed to boost productivity, performance, and the overall user experience.
Adblock, for example, is a very popular extension that blocks irritating ads on websites.
With thousands of Chrome plugins to choose from, how do you know which ones are worth adding to the digital marketing stack?

The snippet is a Chrome extension that can help digital marketers with a range of tasks. Content marketers, in particular, may use snippets of text from the site as a quick reference point for source material while writing content.
Highlighting stories for news to read later or the outline for a course or webinar to see later are examples of such use cases.
You can also sync your Kindle highlights, which is particularly helpful if you read a lot of books that shape your marketing strategy.

Keywords Everywhere is a free chrome extension that provides statistics on search volume, average CPC, and competition metrics (e.g., the estimated number of marketers running advertisements on Google for the keyword) based on data from 16 different websites, including Google Search, YouTube, Google Keyword Planner, Google Analytics, Amazon, eBay, and Bing.
It’s a great free option to have in your keyword analysis toolbox. Plenty of information on your keywords, associated keywords, and other search queries will help you develop your content quickly.
#1. Free Backlink Checker by LRT

This Chrome extension examines a page’s outgoing links. It shows all broken links in red and all live links in green, just like many other link checkers. It can also export all links on a tab, along with their anchor text, HTTP status, and “rel” attribute, to a CSV or XLSX file for further review.
Unlike plenty of other broken link checkers, this one helps you to increase the time delay between link requests for slower page analysis. This eliminates a large number of false positives caused by server security.
There are several Chrome extensions available that integrate the functionality of online SEO software and resources directly into your browser. I hope that this article has helped you in discovering one or more extensions that can significantly increase your productivity and save you time.
Please note that using far too many browser extensions will cause your device to slow down. That’s why, pick them carefully.
