Digital marketing Chrome Extensions make our jobs easier.
And with the recent launch of the Pagezii SEO Chrome Extension, we wanted to build the ultimate list of Extensions that Marketing Pros can’t live without.
And the best part? Every Extension you’ll find on this list comes recommended by a Digital Marketing Professional.
So let’s dive right in…
… And if there’s a Chrome Extension we missed, make sure to leave it in the comments below. Because this list will continue to grow.
1. Pagezii SEO
When I publish content, I need to make sure I optimize for search engine visibility. I also like to see how other sites are optimizing content. Because it shows me how marketing pros SEO their site.
And with Pagezii Extension, I can SEO-grade any page I want, on the fly. It shows an overall SEO score for a page and a detailed SEO score breakdown for important on-page elements.
It also analyzes page messaging and writing style. Which is great for understanding how written content is geared towards target audiences.
Give it a go today and start analyzing SEO in seconds.
2. Grammarly for Chrome
One Chrome Extension which I cannot live without is Grammarly.
A good command of the English language is a must for someone who writes content for online marketing channels on a daily basis.
Going beyond a basic spell checker, Grammarly detects words used in the wrong context. It can fix complex grammatical errors such as subject-verb agreement, article extuse, and modifier placement. It even provides you with tips for improving your vocabulary.
Plugging into your Chrome browser, the Extension works with Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and most other websites you visit.
It’s like having an English teacher peering over your shoulder.
– Dean Ronnie, Content Marketing Manager, Miromedia
3. Asana Quick Add
The best Chrome Extension for me is the Asana Quick add extension. We use Asana to manage the whole team and various projects that we work on.
You may find yourself thinking of new tasks and remembering things throughout the day you must do. And instead of going back into Asana and adding the task, you simply click the extension and you can add tasks without even leaving the tab you’re on.
Not only is it quick and easy, but it also prevents you from getting distracted when going back into Asana.
If I ever have to jump back to my emails or schedule half way through a job, I tend to get sidetracked. Which isn’t good for anyone.
– Ryan Scollon, Marketing Team Lead, Bowler Hat
4. Twitter Follower
Anyone in social media marketing should really look into the Twitter Follower extension.
It allows you to automatically follow and unfollow everyone on a Twitter page.
I use it for following and unfollowing certain Twitter lists, and it’s been very handy.
And here’s my insider tip: don’t follow more than three hundred people at the time…
– Ksenia Newton, Digital Marketing Manager, CrossCap
5. Page Analytics (By Google)
You’re able to see amazing metrics on a website where you have Google Analytics pixel installed.
You’ll get metrics such as page views, average time on page, and bounce rate.
It also has a heat map to show you where website visitors are clicking on your site.
This is hands down my favorite Chrome Extension!
– Jason Parks, Founder, The Media Captian
6. Buffer Extension
By far one of the most useful digital marketing Chrome Extensions for me is the Buffer Extension.
It allows me to easily add content from any website to my Buffer queue for social sharing.
I can also ensure that a great image is included with my posts by right clicking an image in the content and then selecting Buffer this image.
This extension is a true time saver and allows me to provide awesome resources to our social media audiences.
– Julie Graff, Social Content Liaison, Pole Position Marketing
7. Keywords Everywhere
Keywords Everywhere gives you a faster way to find high-volume keywords for content you’re researching.
It displays the search volume, cost per click, and competition rating for any search phrase right under the Google search box.
It also shows figures for the “searches related to” suggestions, so you can drill down and explore more profitable angles.
– Lisa Banks, Content Marketer
8. Video Speed Checker
The newest extension that I’ve been using a lot is the Video Speed Controller Extension.
More and more of the best content is in video form, and there is lots of great thought leadership out there to learn from and to quote. But who has time to watch a 50-minute conference presentation that your colleague had some useful discussion in?
The native playback controls on YouTube and other sites are too limited. This plugin lets you customize the playback speed and skip forward options and create keyboard shortcuts. So you can fly through 60-second skips if you want and then slow down to watch parts at a faster playback speed.
– Robert McQuire, Owner, McGuire Editorial Content Marketing Agency
9. Trello Extension
One of our favorite digital marketing Chrome Extensions is Plus For Trello. Trello is a great productivity app for content marketing professionals because your can customize according to your needs. For example, It’s flexible dependent on the goals of a specific project
We find it best for monitoring our editorial calendar. The Plus For Trello Chrome Extension allows users to track the progress of a project through charts which summarize all their historical data.
With the option to drill-down into detailed reports, which show levels of productivity, it’s an excellent tool for time-sensitive deadlines. Especially for those employees working on more than one content-marketing campaign at a time!
– Lauren Stafford, Digital Publishing Specialist, Discover CRM
10. Facebook Pixel Helper
I help clients advertise on Facebook, so the Facebook Pixel Helper Chrome Extension is essential for me.
It quickly tells me how many pixels and standard event scripts are present on any page, what parameters they are feeding and if they’re working properly.
If you’re building remarketing audiences and optimizing for conversions (and very few successful Facebook advertisers aren’t) your Pixels have to perform correctly.
The Pixel Helper gives me the data I need to make sure they are.
– Bill Winn, Digital PR and Display Media Manager, Inseev Interactive
If a browser has a nofollow or noindex tag, this Extension shows a popup in the bottom right of your window to notify you.
It’s very helpful to identify if a mistake made by tech teams.
This particular extension helped me quickly identify that an entire site had been set to noindex and nofollow following a code-release.
– Jesse Teske, Marketing VP, ThinkWarwick
Rebrandly allows you to create custom short links that use your own domain rather than a generic URL shortener domain like Goo.gl.
For each message that I post to social media, I create a branded link by visiting the page I want to rebrand, clicking the extension, and customizing the link the way I want.
I do this is because it increases brand exposure and CTRs.
Also, I know that my links won’t be blacklisted. Because visitors can trust their destination.
This means that your links aren’t being shortened on Twitter, for example, to t.co/xyz, but rather to a link that contains your brand name, a relevant top-level-domain and a specific keyword in the URL slug.
You could create a branded link like Pagezii.Blog/Chrome-Extensions for this article as an example.
– Ian Matthews, Analytics & Advertising Manager, Rebrandly
13. Evernote Web Clipper
I absolutely love the Evernote Chrome Extension for compiling research for content.
You can clip a selection, a screenshot, bookmark or – my favorite – the ‘simplified article’ view, which grabs the text, links, and images but strips out all the other noise from the page to keep it super readable. You can tag it there and then, and put it in a specific notebook if that helps.
It also saves the page URL. Without it, you could still copy-paste this stuff to Evernote but the extension makes it effortless. For me, it’s a huge time saver and really helps with getting organized.
It works with the free as well as premium Evernote accounts so if you don’t already use it you could go sign up for free.
– Mark Churchill, Digital Marketing Manager, Wealth Club
Our team loves using the Chrome Extension ‘Pocket’.
Pocket acts as a vault to store website links and articles. We use this extension to save and send useful or interesting articles to our team.
It’s very simple – All you have to do is click on the Pocket Extension on any given web page and it automatically adds it to your vault.
As marketers, it’s important to stay up-to-date on the latest news and trends. This extension allows our team to easily share content and develop ideas on emerging trends.
– Chris Madden, Founder, Matchnode
The Chrome Extension I can’t live without is a social media Extension RiteTag.
RiteTag helps determine what hashtags will get you the most traffic and buzz around your post.
With this Extension, I don’t have to worry about creating a hashtag strategy, so it is a big time saver!
– Alexis Krasinski, Founder, Monarchy Management
16. Eye Dropper
My personal favorite is one a colleague showed me.
It’s called Eye Dropper. It’s an extension that allows you to copy and paste, so to speak, a given color from a website and use it for yours.
Basically, when you are on the web and you see a color that you like, you can use the Eye Dropper to copy the color. Then, when you’re in your WordPress or other content system, you can paste the color choice.
This has tons of value within your own blog. Perhaps where you have one graphic in a certain color and you wish to copy that color to another part of that same post.
– Scott Johnson, Founder, Whole vs. Term Life
Today’s world is video-centric. So one of my favorite digital marketing chrome extensions is OddShot.
It allows you to capture and share highlights of anything you find online. It’s a great way to capture and share quick media clips that can be used in your social media marketing.
– Chris Hood, CEO, CH Digital
18. Tag Assistant (By Google)
My preferred Google Chrome Extension for my day-to-day-work is the Google Tag Assistant.
It gives me a quick overview whether tracking is working correctly for my clients and what else might be missing or wrongly implemented.
– Pamela Wagner, Paid Ads Expert
The free Loom extension saves me hours a week typing notes to team and clients.
For clear communication, ease of use and instant sharing (miraculous compared to the cumbersome alternatives), Loom found its way into my daily tools.
Bonus: Fast and smart support.
– Samantha Hartley, Founder, Enlightened Marketing
20. Knew Tab
My favorite productivity Chrome extension is Knew Tab, I’ve been using it for years.
It is a new tab replacement that will automatically sync with your Gmail and Facebook.
So when you open up a new tab you can see unread emails, social media notifications, weather, top Google News, and RSS feeds from my favorite SEO blogs.
– Elliott Soper, SEO Manager, Delphic Digital
21. BuiltWith Technology Profiler
It’s a fantastic quick snapshot of a website to help you plan a website audit or make technical recommendations.
– Nancy McDonald, SEO Trainer, Invenio SEO
I’m a Digital Marketing Professional based in the Midwest. I can’t live without a handful of Chrome extensions every day – the most important being Wappalyzer.
It’s an incredibly robust tool that allows me to uncover the technologies used on websites which are invaluable information for competitive research and clients alike.
– Colby Kraus, Digital Strategist, The Evoke Group
One of my top digital marketing chrome extensions is the Hunter. I have the paid version because I send a lot of cold emails and it’s priceless. It allows me to find someone’s email by knowing their name and/or company.
I’ve had a ton of success with it and it saves me a lot of time by allowing me to find the right email address to connect with the person I want.
– James Pollard, Consultant, The Advisor Coach
Ghostery is a phenomenal extension that lets you see which what is running on a website and disable certain things if desired.
I use this regularly as a marketing to ensure Facebook and Twitter conversion pixels are firing (yes, they both have their own extensions also) and to see what retargeting or analytics clients or competitors are leveraging.
It gives you a sneak peek at the back end of a site!
– Jessica Bahr, Paid Media Director, GLOW
25. Awesome Screenshot
One Digital MArketing Chrome Extension I can’t live without is Awesome Screenshot.
It’s my workhorse to pull screencaps for analytics reports and capture/markup web content to share with clients and my team.
– Derek DeVries, Digital Strategist, Lambert, Edwards and Associates
26. Tinybeest Image Optimization
A Chrome Extension that helps Marketers get more out of their images is Tinybeest.
It lets users right-click on an image in the browser to download a
resized and optimized version.
The extension saves me lots of time staying out of Photoshop for simple tasks. It also improves search visibility by ensuring images are optimized and ready for the web.
– Ran Craycraft, Managing Partner, Wildebeest Design
One tool we can’t live without is the ShareMetric Chrome extension we developed internally and then released to the public.
It pulls in the current accessible social shares (excepting Twitter/Facebook as the APIs are no longer available), links to Twitter search for that URL, and backlinks including Moz Open Site Explorer metrics (after setting the Moz APIs in the options).
We pretty much use this daily in the office as we developed it ourselves to fulfill our marketing needs.
– Kane Jamison, Founder, Content Harmony
28. Tag Manager Injector
A super useful plugin and a real time saver, this plugin is a must if you are coding a GTM project on a client’s website that has a deadline.
Even if the client’s development team hasn’t placed the GTM container, you don’t have to wait days, weeks, or even months for the GTM container to be placed. You can just inject, code and finish the project all before the project deadline passes.
Tag Manager Injector has helped my team meet client deadlines more times than I can remember.
– Michael Ulrich, Director of Development, Wpromote
29. News Feed Eradicator
One of my top digital marketing Chrome Extensions is News Feed Eradicator for Facebook.
Everyone knows Facebook is a huge time suck. But sometimes you need to check in on that message or notification you’ve been waiting for.
News Feed Eradicator allows you to check Facebook without getting sucked into the News Feed rabbit hole.
News Feed Eradicator replaces your news feed with an inspiring quote. This way you can quickly check Facebook and move on without getting drawn into your friend’s pictures or click bait celebrity gossip.
– Sean Mapes, Marketing Consultant
One of my favorites is Crystal. It’s a plug-in that works in Gmail and LinkedIn and gives a deeper look into the personality and likes/dislikes of people when contacting them.
It’s a good way to write emails, helping keep them concise and hopefully appeal to that person’s personality type. This is helpful for reaching out to influencers, media, and others and getting a better feel for what will and will not work in the emails.
– Jeremy Pepper, PR Consultant, Communimatic
31. BuzzStream Buzzmarker
I use Buzzmarker, one of the digital marketing chrome extensions from BuzzStream. It’s amazing at pulling contact information, social media profiles, and bylines from any website.
It then organizes that contact information into Buzzstream. It significantly reduces prospecting for link building, content marketing outreach, and influencer prospecting.
– Alex Deckard, SEO Specialist, Aeroflow
