The 33 Best Chrome Extensions For Online Marketers

I think I'm about to ruin your day. Not because of anything bad. But because I'm about to give you 33 awesome toys to play with. 

When you do SEO day in and day out--which, at its heart, is just a bunch of stuff on the internet--you end up finding tools that make your job (or your life) just a teensy bit easier.

I've found a lot, and I wanted to share them with you guys. Of course, there are tons of tools, and this is by no means an exhaustive list. It's just a list of what we like to use around here. So if I missed anything, let me know in the comments! ​

Fair warning : if your computer doesn't have a lot of ram (8GB or more) and you often work on battery, I recommend you hand pick the extensions you install. Adding a lot of extensions to Chrome significantly increase its battery usage and CPU requirements. Be smart!

1. Gmass

Gmass is by far my favorite new marketing tool. It does almost everything--almost!--premium email outreach tools do, but it's 100% free and about a million times easier to use. 

Gmass connects with Google Sheets, pulling in data and using column headers as the customizable fields you're used to with most outreach tools.

The best feature, in my opinion, though, is the ability to send a bunch of emails in one click.​ Other features include one-click follow-up campaigns, sending emails as replies to previous conversations, and the ability to space out emails, which allows you to send up to 10,000 messages in a single campaign (again, with one click). 

​The only thing it doesn't do is keep track of relationships, but since it's synced with Gmail, you can just stick important relationships in a folder.

2. Auto Text Expander

Auto Text Expander allows you to create shortcodes (essentially macros) to quickly fill in any text field in your browser. For marketers, the real power is being able to quickly populate contact forms without having to copy and paste a script. 

Honestly, when I was executing outreach campaigns, I used to just skip sites that didn't list emails and not even use contact forms because it took so long. Auto Text Expander makes it ridiculously fast--I'm talking 5-10 seconds per form if you're not personalizing much.

This can dramatically boost the number of sites you're contacting during a link-building campaign. ​

3. Ahrefs

Ahrefs is honestly becoming one of the best SEO tools on the market. For my money, the way things are going, it will probably be the only tool you have to buy before long. 

The Ahrefs Chrome extension is a counterpart to the Mozbar, but, of course, it uses Ahrefs database instead of Moz's database. And Ahrefs has a much better database than Moz.

The one downside of this plugin is that you can't export data from the SERPs, which is a major perk of Mozbar. ​

4. HootSuite

Hootsuite is no secret at this point, and really, you could write a blog post on HootSuite alone. There are just so many applications.

For most people, though, the important functions are: (1) being able to share posts across multiple social networks at the same time, (2) scheduling posts, and (3) having all your social media analytics aggregated in one place.

If you have a site that depends on social traffic, and you don’t yet have a posting, scheduling, or analytics solution, this is a good, free place to start. Of course, you can upgrade for a more robust version.

Feedly is a content aggregator, and it’s a really good one. After installing Feedly, you’ll get a dashboard, where you can add the feeds of your favorite blogs.

You can also categorize blogs based on the type of content. So, for example, I’ve got a feed called “Amazing Marketers” with Fat Stacks and Rank XL in it. But you can add virtually any site on the internet.

By default, Feedly shows the most recent, unread articles, which keeps your feed fresh. When you search for a site to add it, you’ll also

6. Email Hunter

One of my favorite new tools is Email Hunter.

I’ve been saying for a long time that the first guy to invent a working software that actually finds contact information reliably will have SEOs basically throwing money at him. This isn’t that. But it’s a step in the right directly.

The beauty of Email Hunter is that it’s just one button. You go to a website, click the button, and see all the emails the software finds.

You’ll also be able to see the sources of those emails, so you can visit them (or take a quick look-see at the pages the emails are coming from) to see if they’re legit.

The coolest thing about this tool, however, is that it uses APIs from other email databases in addition to scraping the site you’re on. So the odds of finding an email are usually pretty good.

7. BuzzMarker

BuzzMarker is the counterpart to BuzzStream, which, as you know, is one of our favorite outreach tools. Buzzstream is for emails, BuzzMarker is for prospecting.

BuzzMarker will take any list of URLs (including the SERPs from Google) and take you through them one-by-one. It will find as much information as it can for you (social accounts, emails), but you can add your own as well.

It does all of this without leaving that website. Then, it uploads it into a BuzzStream project you specify. If you’re doing your own link prospecting and you use BuzzStream, you pretty much have to use BuzzMarker.

8. Print Friendly

Print Friendly is a great plugin if you ever need to take something from the web with you and won’t have access to it online.

For me, when I’m traveling by plane, I’ll often print out a bunch of good articles from around the web and read them like I would a magazine. The problem, of course, is that websites print like crap.

Print Friendly fixes that. It strips articles down to their bare essentials and allows you to quickly delete stuff you don’t want in there (like images).

Additionally it's a great plugin to create quick lead magnets off blog posts.​

9. Google Analytics URL Builder

If you’ve ever tried to set up an event to track a particular link in Google Analytics, you probably know what an absolute nightmare it is. Google Analytics URL Builder is a great, simple fix for that.

It allows you to create a link for any URL and track all of the data from it in your analytics account.

It’s especially useful for, say, tracking traffic from Facebook shares (which would normally be lumped together with every other click coming from Facebook) or newsletters (which would all count as direct traffic).

What Font is an ultra-simple plugin that mostly helps when you’re designing your site by telling you which fonts other websites are using.

All you have to do is click the What Font button and hover over the font on any webpage. And that’s it!

It’s small, and it’s simple, but I think all of us have spent a few hours searching for that one weird font we like. This solves that problem.

11. Mozbar

Mozbar has been a staple for SEOs for a long time. It’s still pretty good, and it’s more or less the industry standard, so It’s worth installing.

Mozbar lets you quickly judge the power of both a single page and an entire site by using the Domain Authority and Page Authority metrics.

Just remember that Moz’s database is terrible, and they scale DA off the sites with the most links, which makes it a useless metric at the lower end of the spectrum. Still, it’s a good way to get a feel for how powerful a site is or how easy a keyword might be to rank for.

LastPass is my favorite password manager, and since installing it about two years ago, I’ve thanked the internet gods every time I use it. It’s just so good and so easy.

Not only does it remember every one of your passwords for every site you ever need to log into, but it also lets you share passwords with people (Vas, for example) without revealing them, which is very useful to those of us managing small teams of freelancers.

Nimbus is one of many screenshot extensions out there, and it’s one of my favorites.

I use it mostly for taking ultra-quick screen caps that I’m planning to send via instant messenger. The coolest part of the tool, though, is that it lets you quickly record and send video.

This is super useful when training new freelancers or employees. They’ll ask a question, and I’ll just record my screen for 30 seconds, showing them how to do whatever it is they need to do. It speeds up the training process tremendously.

SEO Quake has been around since before I knew what SEO even was, and it’s still around today. It’s also probably one of the best tools to get a quick, comprehensive look at any webpage.

The power of SEO Quake is in its ability to display all kinds of metrics from a variety of different data sources (e.g. Google, SEM Rush, Alexa).

You can also see stuff like keyword density, word count, and others. I like to use it when I’m reverse engineering my competitor’s content, but you can use it for a bunch of stuff.

Evernote Web Clipper is a premier plugin with a whole lot of uses.

Personally, I use it mostly for taking screenshots and creating images out of them, since their markup format is really well-designed.

But, of course, there are lots of other uses. You can “clip” articles, LinkedIn profiles and the like. Then, you can save them all in your account, highlight important bits, and even add your own annotations. It’s really robust, and you can probably find about a thousand other uses for it.

It integrates with your email service and keeps track of your daily email goal, and it shows you how close you are to hitting your number each time you open a new tab in your browser.

It’s mostly motivational, but it’s still pretty cool.

If you’re anything like me, you probably have, like, 500 tabs open every time you’re working—especially if you’re doing outreach.

​This aint a gud sentance?

The Great Suspender “pauses” unused tabs so they don’t eat up all your memory. It’s especially good if you’re a someone who likes to game during your workday (cough Gael cough), since Chrome can severely hinder your FPS.

Grammarly is awesome if you’re not quite sure if your grammar is running at 100% or you are not a native speaker.

It’s an online service that allows you to upload, write, or share documents and then check for spelling and grammar mistakes.

It doesn’t catch everything, so you still need to know what you’re doing, but it’s a good supplement for folks who need a grammar brush-up.

Be careful though, it messes up with Thrive Content Builder.​

It more or less transforms your signature into something that looks like it was sent from a “real” company. Combined with Google Apps, which gives you a branded email address, this can really boost your conversions if your outreaching to other businesses.

At the very least, it makes you look a lot more professional and allows you to softly promote things like your social profiles and latest blog posts every time you email someone.

The platform integrates with Gmail and has most of the features you’ll find in a more expensive tool: custom templates, email tracking, follow-up reminders and others.

In my view, the free version of Yesware isn't as good as Gmass; however, it does do a much better job at tracking relationships, which can be good if you’re doing a bunch of high-level relationship building.

Plus, you can use both together and put your outreach on steroids!​

Check My Links is a Chrome extension you probably know about if you’ve done much broken link building at all—mostly because it’s by far the best extension for finding broken links.

In a nutshell, Check My Links will crawl a webpage and look for (you guessed it) broken links. If you find any, you can email the webmaster and ask them to replace the broken link with yours.

Even better, you can plug that broken link into Ahrefs and email everyone who is still linking to it. All in all, it’s a great, simple plugin that can get you loads of links.

23. Rapportive

There are plenty of good contact-finding tools (we’ve even got a few in this list), but if all else fails, you can use Rapportive to manually guess someone’s email.

Rapportive connects LinkedIn profiles to Gmail. So, if you’re emailing someone, you can see their LinkedIn profile. Obviously, the plugin wasn’t built to find emails, but you can use it find emails if you simply type in guesses until you get one right.

To do this, you’d use standard combinations of a person’s first name, last name, and their domain. For example, to find Gael’s email, you might try [email protected], [email protected], etc.

Again, it’s a lot more manual than, say, Email Hunter, but if there’s an email you really want, Rapportive is a good way to find it.

You simply have to find a first name, last name and a domain, and FTL will run through combinations of those until it finds an email registered to LinkedIn.

I’ve found that you can find slightly more emails with Rapportive, but, of course, FTL is much faster, so it’s a tradeoff. Still, this is a great plugin for prospecting.

This extension allows you to place your own calls to action over other people’s content. Yes, you read that correctly.

You can, for example, share an amazing, popular piece of content on Facebook, and if people interact with it, they will also see a CTA asking them to subscribe to your email list perhaps.

It’s a really, really great way to give your audience amazing content from LOTS of other great sources will still capturing emails or diverting traffic to your blog posts. This is not one to miss.

P.S. I joked about "never doing this to you!" when sharing Brian Dean's content, but in reality, I think sharing other people's great content & offering something related is really a win-win for everyone!​

It’s nothing extreme, and the develops of Followr make sure to let you know this is “tasteful” automation. Still, it’s a nice little extra social boost.

    Ganee — Ajay here, creator of GMass. Let me answer your MailChimp vs GMass question.

    GMass is meant as a tool to send up to a few thousand emails from your existing Gmail or Google Apps account. MailChimp will let you send high volume campaigns to hundreds of thousands or millions of people. GMass is meant for lower volume sending. The primary advantages of using GMass over MailChimp for low volume campaigns are:

    1. Because your emails are sent from your own Gmail account, and therefore from Google’s own servers, your emails will almost always end up in the Primary Inbox as opposed to the Promotions tab. Your deliverability will be the highest it’s ever been, because nobody blocks Google’s servers.

    2. You can conduct your email marketing campaigns from within your Gmail account, rather than having to use an external system.

    3. All GMass functionality/reporting/settings sit right inside the Gmail interface. You never have to log in to use GMass or access any other website.

    4. You can thread your email campaigns into existing conversations that you’ve previously had with Gmail contacts.

So, like, if you have a list of broken link targets, you can just drag your little box over them, copy them all at once & paste them into a spreadsheet. Basically, LinkClump = a poor man’s scraper.

    Awesome. Streak looks really cool; I send WAY more than 200 emails (their free-version limit), but if I really find myself jonesing for a more robust CRM, I’ll give that a go. I just want to stay in Google’s toolbox!

Hi Perrin,
Thank you very much for mentioning my Chrome extension (#9 – Google Analytics URL builder) and for the great video!
Last week I’ve deploy new version that looks much much better (more like other Google services) and with a support for Google URL shortner, in addition to Bitly support.

Best and thanks again :)

Hi Perrin,

Great list and quite a few overlaps with a similar list I published a few weeks back. But you’ve also thrown in a few new ones to check out; e.g. GA URL Builder and SEO Quake.

I use Grammarly and I also found it interfering with Thrive Content Builder too. What did you experience? Just getting in the way of your typing text or bad performance?
And on the subject of spelling why did you label all your YouTube tutorials with ‘Extention’ rather than ‘Extension’?

Thanks

    Grammarly does interfere with Thrive. I don’t use Grammarly personally, since I spent a good chunk of my professional career as an editor, but I do recommend it to my writers & agencies, so they can give me cleaner drafts.

    As for the spelling, Gael did all the uploading! Point your pitchforks at him!!! :P

Amazing post Perrin, thanks for taking the time to put together all of the tutorials. I just added URL Builder to my growing list of extensions.

Gmass looks like a great free option. I used https://contentmarketer.io/connector/. Appsumo had a great deal of a one time payment for a lifetime subscription. It offers sending through gmail, mail merge, follow up campaigns, and also tracking of opens and clicks.

There are a couple things I’d like to see improved in Connector, mainly automatically removing bounced emails and out of office msgs so they don’t show up as replies, and the ability to save a campaign when you create it so you can easily reuse it later.

I’ve used a chrome extension to dig up the developers email (lol) and he says some big updates are coming down the pipe this year.

Another extension I just found that I love is “Home – New Tab Page”. Gives you email notifications, calendar, to do list, links and weather on new Chrome tabs.

As a professional writer I use Grammarly the most. Seriously when you are writing you are putting your thoughts in words and Grammarly makes sure that you don’t make any grammar mistake as it could even led to a blunder and change the whole meaning of the sentence.

I liked other extensions as well would like to try followr and rescuetime soon.

Thanks mate for sharing this awesome stuff..

keep sharing

Fantastic list. Eye Dropper has saved me tons of time on color selection and almost eliminates the need to memorize or write down hex codes.

Rapportive, Mozbar and Nimbus make me. Rapportive is a better tool I use to get almost all ema8ls I want to pitch to. I am that guy who runs on a Zero Budget.

I think AwesomeScreenshot chrome extension ought to be in the list too. Check it. It works well for me.

Great piece. Thanks.

Wow. I feel overwhelmed with all this. This is an amazing article bro.
I am only acquainted with Moz, ahrefs and hootsuite but the rest are all new to me.
And i am definitely gonna try them out especially toggl I always use up my time without ever getting enough done and be like
“where the heck did all my time go”.
I am bookmarking this post right now.

Thanks Perrin, u awesome.

Hi Gael, after trying Gmass and Yesware for a while I came across NinjaOutreach. Though it is a paid extension it saved me a lot of time and effort. (besides it is fun) Combined with Scrapebox you can check and outreach to literally hundreds of people at a time.
Cheers Mat

Wow. That’s quite a mouthful. I find Buffer to be more useful than Hootlet. The ahref toolbar used to be available for free back in the old days.Followr is quite an interesting one, although not sure about the CPU/memory consumption. Grammarly is badass, although it can be a bit too aggressive in correcting “mistakes” sometimes. :)

Thank you, these are amazing. I have been trying to do outreach manually, I didn’t know about Gmass and the other one that can scrape the owners email from the site. That is going to save me so much time. Unfortunately it’s no longer free though; $8 if you want to be able to send out the emails without the footer promoting G-mass.

It’s amazing how you guys can maintain a webmaster blog that’s so useful while running a huge authority site at the same time. Everything you guys do is quality. I’ve come across your site below but I had no idea you guys were behind Health Ambition and how much darn traffic it has!

I wanted to share a new Chrome extension we’ve built for finding emails on LinkedIn and GitHub profiles. It’s the most accurate and least expensive extension to date. We have over 200 million emails and counting. Check Nymeria out (https://www.nymeria.io).

    Hey Corey! Just wanted to ask why LinkedIn closed you? I mean how come they can suit you, for what? I know LinkediN also bought rapportive, harassed anymailfinder and they are after many others. I am still using Rapportive a lot and http://snov.io is my new favorite tool

Grammarly is probably the most underrated chrome extensions but is such a necessity! On a side note, I think you would find keywords everywhere super useful as it showcases vital search volume, cpc and competition data onto google search results and numerous keyword tools out there. One of the time saving benefit is that you can easily save the keywords (data included) and export them. Hope you would find it useful and add it onto the list as its gaining momentum with a growing user base!
