11 Must Use Google Chrome Extensions For Bloggers

Blogging is hard.

And If you want to grow your blog, you will have to put in a lot of time and effort.

There’s no way you can skip past that.

But there are a few ways you can make the whole process faster and make your life easier.

And one of the best ways to do that is to find tools that either make repetitive, tedious tasks easier or complete them for you.

So, here are a few of the best Google Chrome Extensions to help you save some time, increase productivity as a blogger and kick ass.

Keep in mind; these are the chrome extensions I use and recommend.

These extensions save me a ton of time, money and resources.

Some of these are essentials, and others will help you make things (a bit) easier.


Best Google Chrome Extensions For Bloggers

10. Email Hunter

Reaching out to other bloggers and building connections is an essential part of growing your blog.

It can skyrocket the growth of your blog overnight if done right.

But here’s the thing we can both agree on:

Finding the correct email address of a website owner is a real pain in the ass and makes the whole process not only difficult but boring and tedious as well.

This is where Email Hunter comes handy.

Email Hunter Chrome Extension
  • Save

It is a free tool that helps you find email addresses related to any website.

It not only shows you email addresses related to the website but also a confidence score (in percentage):

Email Hunter Google Chrome Extension
  • Save

Email Hunter cuts the time required to find email addresses by more than half.

This tool a lot of time and increases the chances of your email reaching the right person.

Get Email Hunter


9. Awesome Screenshot

Awesome Screenshot is the best Google Chrome extension when it comes to screenshots.

It’s easy to use, offers tons of options and is totally free.

One of the best things about this tool is the number of options it provides when it comes to taking a screenshot.

Awesome Screenshot Chrome Extension
  • Save

You can capture the whole page, a selected area, the visible area or the whole screen.

Not only that, but it also includes a tool to annotate your screenshots which make it easier for you to create professional-looking screenshots for your blog.

Its ease of use and simplicity makes it the perfect tool for taking screenshots.

Get Awesome Screenshot


8. StayFocusd

In today’s world, it’s so easy to lose focus and waste hours procrastinating on Facebook or in your inbox.

As much as we all love procrastinating, here’s something we can both agree on: It doesn’t pay the bills.

If you want to keep the lights on and grow your blog, you need to spend more time on your blog than on sites like Facebook.

This is where StayFocusd comes handy.

StayFocusd Chrome Extension
  • Save

It’s a simple tool that restricts the amount of time you can spend on time-wasting websites.

Here’s how it works:

You add all the websites you spend your time procrastinating on (like Email, Facebook, and Twitter) to this tool and set a daily limit on the amount of time you can use these websites.

Once the time is up, StayFocusd blocks these websites and doesn’t allow you to visit them until the next day.

If you find yourself procrastinating and not being able to focus on your work, I highly recommend you to start using this tool.

Get StayFocusd


7. Grammarly

Here’s the deal:

It’s always better to find and fix grammatical mistakes in your content before your audience reads it.

Because let’s face it…

It’s embarrassing to find grammatical mistakes in the content you just published or the email you just sent.

Grammarly comes handy not only when writing articles, but also when writing emails or creating social media posts.

Grammarly Chrome Extension
  • Save

Even if you are a grammar Rockstar, there can be times when you make grammatical mistakes.

While, being a software, it can’t find every mistake you make, it is still great at finding and suggesting fixes for most grammatical mistakes.

So, if you want to avoid embarrassment and make sure your content is free of any grammatical mistakes, I would highly recommend you to start using Grammarly.

Get Grammarly


6. Evernote Web Clipper

Evernote Web Clipper is an awesome tool that allows you to ‘clip’ anything you see on the internet.

It allows you to save articles, infographics, screenshots and images to your Evernote notebooks.

Evernote Web Clipper Chrome Extension
  • Save

It helps a lot when it comes to content research allowing you to capture inspiration when it strikes and makes it all available on all your devices.

Get Evernote Web Clipper


5. Link Miner

If you have ever tried broken link building, you know it’s a pain in the ass to find broken links on any given web page.

This is where link miner comes to rescue.

It is a simple, free tool that helps you check web pages for broken links.

The best thing about this tool is its simplicity.

To use it, you just have to click the extension icon, and it marks broken links in the web page with a red background making them easily visible.

LinkMiner Chrome Extension
  • Save

Not only that, but you can also enable options to display error code and number of backlinks for every link on the web page.

I find it useful to enable these two metrics in this tool.

Another great feature of this tool is that it also displays important SEO metrics for Google search results with just a click:

LinkMiner Result in SERP
  • Save

Link miner is an essential tool for every blogger.

Get LinkMiner


4. MozBar

If you have ever tried to learn SEO, I am pretty sure you have come across MOZ.com more than a few times.

MozBar, a product of Moz, is a free tool that displays important SEO metrics like Page Authority and Domain Authority.

Mozbar Chrome Extension
  • Save

While MozBar doesn’t offer much functionality, it surely helps you find out if a website is a good link prospect or not at a glance.

It also displays metrics for all Google Search Results when you search for something:

Mozbar Result in SERP
  • Save

If SEO is a part of your marketing strategy, MozBar can save you a lot of time by helping you weed out all the low-quality sites that aren’t worth getting a backlink from.

Get MozBar


3. Save To Pocket

When researching for an article, it’s easy to get buried in an overwhelming amount of articles or research papers.

It happens to me all the time.

This is where Save To Pocket comes to rescue.

Save To Pocket Chrome Extension
  • Save

It allows you to save articles to your Pocket account and read them later on any of your devices.

It makes it easy to conduct research for your articles by helping you save articles for later and helping you better organize them.

Get Save To Pocket


2. Buffer

Buffer Chrome Extension
  • Save

I am pretty sure you have already heard about Buffer.

It’s a free social media management tool.

It makes it really easy to share posts across your social media profiles and saves you a ton of time.

It allows you to schedule your social media posts and is available for all your favorite platforms including Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram.

When you install the Buffer extension to your browser, it allows you to schedule your social media posts with just a click of a button.

Get Buffer


1. GMass

If you know how beneficial reaching out to other bloggers is for your blog’s growth, you also know what a pain in the ass email outreach can be at times.

Gmass is an awesome free tool that can save you tons of time and make email outreach far easier.

You just need to create a list of prospects in a Google Sheet, connect Gmass and with a single click you can send emails to all of your prospects at once.

GMass Google Chrome Extension
  • Save

It offers a lot of features for free, but one of its best features is the ability to send hundreds or even 10,000 emails in just one click.

It can cut the time required for email outreach by more than half.

Get GMass


Conclusion

I hope these extensions help you save time and make your life easier.

While there are thousands of extensions available on Chrome Webstore for every task, these are one of my favorites that I use and recommend.

I am sure I missed a lot of great Chrome extensions in this list.

And if I missed one of your favorites, let me know in the comments.

  2. Hi Ankit,
    Awesome post. Extensions for chrome are what make it the best suite of my blogging business. The ones you’ve listed are really essential extensions and I use almost everyone of them.

    I never used Gmass, will try it out. Thanks for introducing. 🙂

    As a blogger, I also use the following extensions (I hope it’s okay to share here (no affiliate links, though)).
    1) WhatFont: To check font pairing of my blog and other blogs
    2) Color pick eye dropper: For designing and choosing exact color hex codes.
    3) Bitly
    4) page analytics: For checking individual page analytics directly from that page.
    There are others but I use them occasionally. 🙂

    Thanks bro, have a good day ahead.

  3. Hey Ankit,

    Those are indeed awesome chrome extensions and productive also, I agree with the fact that we sometimes spend too much time on sites like Facebook and StayFocusd seems to be a nice solution to it.

    What if I add one more here?

    It’s Mailtrack. It’s a free chrome extension that tells us whether our emails are being read or not, it’s for gmail. I use it all the time and it really helps me to track my emails. I’m sure you’ll like it too.

    Looking forward to read more of your content.

    Cheers,
    Karan
