6 Essential Google Chrome Add-ons and Extensions for Bloggers

Blogging can instantly increase the visibility of your brand online, entice more customers to your pages and boost sales. But let’s face it: Blogging can be a lot of work. From thinking of new content ideas to formatting your posts, sometimes the whole process can be seriously time-consuming. Thankfully, there is a whole heap of Google Chrome browser add-ons that can streamline this process and make blogging so much easier. Even better, a lot of them are completely free. Want to find out what they are? Read on!

1. Grammarly

Struggling with your grammar? Stuck with spelling? Luckily, there’s a solution – and it’s easy to use. Grammarly’s free Google Chrome add-on automatically checks your blog posts in real-time for any spelling tips or grammar mistakes and suggests ways to make your content more engaging and interesting to your readers. The free version will provide you with basic spelling and grammar checks, but you can upgrade to one of the paid packages for additional features.

2. WordPress Comment Notifier

This extension for Chrome will instantly check for pending comments on your blog (if you’re using WordPress, of course) and will display it as a badge on your browser. The result? You can quickly approve comments, reply to posts or move content to the Trash folder without having to open a new tab. This extension is quick and easy to use – a must for any blogger that receives a lot of comments.

3. ChromePass

If you have several blogs across various platforms, it can be tricky if you need to remember your password in a pinch. ChromePass solves that problem by securing storing – and remembering – your passwords. Just click on the extension when you want to log in and edit a blog post and ChromePass will remember all the details for you, potentially saving you loads of wasted time. Give it a try!

4. Buffer

When you upload a new blog post, you’ll want the world to know about it. Buffer lets you increase the exposure of your content on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook. How does it work? Well, you can schedule your WordPress posts for your social media platforms and plan your marketing campaigns ahead of time so they coincide with a particular promotion or special event. Buffer is a must if you want to keep your prospects engaged and generate more leads from your social pages.

5. Mozbar

Want to keep a closer eye on metrics? Well, now you can with Mozbar. Download and install this Chrome add-on so you can view SEO analytics as you browse the internet. Sounds pretty impressive, right? Get the latest insights and ascertain the hottest new marketing trends so you can fine tune your blog content and stay one step ahead of your competitors.

6. Alexa Traffic Rank

You might have used Alexa in the past. This site gives you insights into how well your blogs are performing on the web, including the amount of traffic you receive and where it’s coming from. The Alexa Google Chrome extension pretty much does the same thing but it makes it easier to get traffic ranking information from directly inside your browser.
