5 Must-Use Chrome Extensions for SEO

electronics in a cloud formatLet’s face it, there are too many things that affect your SEO efforts for you to track manually or leave up to chance. Thanks to the many Chrome extensions available for SEO purposes, you don’t have to.

These five extensions will help you stay ahead of your SEO game—and your competition:


It should be no surprise to see Moz’s extension here. Moz is, well, Moz. Mozbar puts SEO metrics in the palm of your hand, giving you a quick overview of key metrics such as Page and Domain Authority, link profiles and highlighting of keywords. It also provides social metrics and exposes page elements.

Majestic SEO Backlink Analyzer

When it comes to backlinks, quality matters. You get link profile charts and link counts detailed at the URL, subdomain and root levels. This handy tool also displays the TrustFlowTM and Citation FlowTM of any page neatly in the address bar, and identifies the 10 strongest backlinks and anchor text items on each page.

SEO SERP Workbench

Keep an eye on the search result placement of multiple URLs at one time. In addition to multi-country support, one of our favorite features of this extension is the ability to track not only your URLs but also your competitors’.

Page Speed Insights

Slow web performance is a killer to the customer experience and to your SEO results. This extension not only provides data on actual page speed but also offers suggestions for improvement.

Check My Links

Check My Links exemplifies the “do one thing and do it well” mantra. Find broken links in a flash on any page. The intuitive interface displays active links in green and broken ones in red. It can’t get any simpler than that.

This is by no means an exhaustive list of the Chrome extensions for SEO that are valuable to you but it can—and should—give you a place to start.

Make sure that you are harnessing the powerful tools available to stay abreast of all aspects of SEO. Monitoring only the quality of your links, for example, is not enough. Let these and other tools help you diversify your metrics and move your rankings up.
