They are designed to save you time and give you real-time results while you are on the move. These are must-haves if you want to save time and get accurate results when it comes to SEO.

Here are the Most Important SEO extensions for Google Chrome:


It is one of the best and most used Chrome extensions for SEO insights. Once you are logged into your Moz account, you can start using MozBar for testing the quality of websites. This tool offers quick and detailed page analysis of on-page elements, general attributes, and page markup and it also analyses links. It includes many useful features like page load time, the country that the website originates from, meta keywords, meta tags, and many other helpful metrics.

There is an option to Highlight Links that can highlight followed, no-followed, external, and internal links for a chosen webpage. The extension also works with Google search results. When you enter a specific keyword and you get a list of results, MozBar will display Page Authority and Domain Authority below every result.

This extension has a free and a premium version. In addition to the above-mentioned features, MozBar Premium offers Keyword Difficulty scores in real-time, instant Page Optimization details, and Content Suggestions for any keyword on the page plus many more useful SEO metrics. It has a free 30-day trial so you can test these features and see if they suit your needs.

Page Analytics by Google

SEO is all about user experience and this extension will show you how your customers interact with your website and how your website behaves. Similar to the Google Analytics tool, it provides a detailed analysis of your website’s structure but in real time. It is completely free but you need to have a Google Analytics Account to access its features.

While you browse through your website you will be able to analyze pages on the move. After you log into your GA account, access to many amazing features will be granted. Some of the available metrics are Average Time on the page, Bounce Rate, Pageviews, and Unique Pageviews. Next, to areas where you can click on (buttons, links, etc.), you will be able to see a small window that shows a percentage of users who clicked on that area.

Page Analytics extension comes with a Segments option where you can set up to 4 different segments to analyze. This includes Paid Search Traffic, Direct Traffic, New Users, Returning Users, etc.

I would recommend this particular extension to people who want to improve the user experience of their website and see what works and what doesn’t and which areas need improvements or changes. The only disadvantage is that you cannot use it to evaluate competition but that isn’t what extension was intended for.

PageSpeed Insights

Since Google announced that Page Speed affects greatly website’s ranking, people in the SEO world started constantly improving page speed. This amazing extension measures page speed and tells you why and if your website is slow.

It allows you to copy any given URL and analyze results. Two sets of results are being returned by this tool, the speed of your website on mobile and a computer. First, you will see a speed score and it is often different for mobile optimization and usual desktop optimization. Under speed score, there are 3 types of analyzed data.

Should Fix is the first type and it displays suggestions on how to improve page speed. Usually, it allows you to eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS code and to consider enabling compression for lower page load time. These fixes can be different for each website because not every site has the same problems.

Consider Fixing is the second type of data. Under this section, the extension suggests that you consider addressing the listed problems. These can very often include leveraging browsing cache and/or downsizing your JavaScript code to reduce page load time.

The third type of returned analyzed data is called Passed Rules. This section is designed to show which parts of the analyzed website are passing the SEO rules. You can see details about implemented SEO strategies that are functioning properly and this can help you achieve better results for other web pages.

The extension is completely free and you can use it to assess competitive websites as well.
