The 5 Best SEO Chrome Extensions for Bloggers & SEO Specialists
I have been an avid user of Chrome for the past couple of years. Being a lightweight and fast browser, I believe this a very good choice for people wanting an alternative to Firefox (or for people who just want a great browsing experience).
If you also like using Chrome, you may find this list of Chrome SEO extensions useful. With these extensions, a blogger can install the extension and analyze the SEO value of any site or URL. This is very helpful, especially when you wish to check your (or another website’s) ranking.
In particular, to maintain your domain authority, you may want to check the rank of a website you are linking to. This will ensure that you are not linking to any bad neighborhoods.
Google Chrome is one of the best and most robust web browsers out there. But when it comes to practical use, many people (especially from the SEO world) hesitate to switch from Firefox to Chrome as they are comfortable using the Mozilla SEO extensions.
But Google Chrome also has some really good SEO extensions (plugins).
Here are the 5 best SEO plugins for Chrome.
Useful Chrome SEO Extensions for SEO Professionals:
