Estimated reading time: 2 minutes, 11 seconds
We all love a good tool now don’t we? Anything to make life easier and our work rate more efficient. When it comes to tools for SEO and related online disciplines it can be extra useful to have these tools to hand as browser extensions.
So if you’re still fannying around in Firefox or Opera (dems jokes – cc Hannah Smith) then here’s a list of useful Chrome extensions that we like to use at theMediaFlow.
SEO Site Tools
All you have ever needed in a comprehensive site tool plus a few other things you don’t really need nowadays, but let’s not split hairs. Also includes social shares and suchlike which can be quite handy for AW12.
Okay, so it’s not *really* SEO but this awesome little extension-job tells you the cookies that drop as you visit a page; which is invaluable if you find you’re advising clients on the EU Cookie Directive in a kind of “which does not constitute legal advice” way.
Also I have a BIG THING for adding “ery” to the end of mono-syllabic nouns as it makes everything better. Try it: “chipsery,” “ginery,” “sexery,” “ryan goslingery”.
Ayima Redirect Path
I like Ayima. I think they need their own theme tune, but let’s not let that detract from this nice and simple header-check. It tells you when a page you are on redirects you (which you might not notice) and gives a header indicator.
Actually an app rather than extension but once synced, has a wealth of information about your Twitter account. It facilitates far more analysis than Twitter on the web or other desktop clients I have come across.
Adds a toolbar button to the browser with various web developer tools. This is the official port of the Web Developer extension for Firefox.
