I have been a Google Chrome user for awhile now and probably would have started using it the day it was first released if it hadn’t been for all the Firefox add-ons I depended on. It did not take long for the developer community to port over to Chrome and ever since I have used it exclusively. I have found it much more dependable than Firefox and with the recent syncing ability across all devices and computers, I don’t see myself moving away from Chrome anytime soon. Anyway, this article is not to push you to use Chrome, but instead show you the four Chrome Extensions I cannot live without and why.
I love statistics and if you are an affiliate marketer I am sure you feel the same. WebRank SEO is an awesome Chrome extension that adds a button to your Chrome browser so you can easily view the Google Pagerank, Alexa, Compete, Quantcast score, backlinks, pages indexed, and more for whatever page you are viewing.
I use this extension to monitor this blogs ranks primarily, but anyone trying to build up a site should find it beneficial.
There are a bunch of different apps and sites out there dedicated to helping you do screen captures of websites, but I downloaded and use Screen Capture because it also allows you to easily create arrows and put text on your screenshot. You can capture parts of the page you are viewing, visible content, or the whole page.
I use this extension quite a bit to take screenshots of landing pages for my PeerFly publishers or by taking screenshots of part of the PeerFly interface and using arrows/text to explain something to a publisher.
I kept running into an issue where I wanted to make a graphic for part of a page I was working on or an affiliate marketing forum and wasn’t sure what size it needed to be. So, I searched on the Google Chrome Web Store and found MeasureIt. MeasureIt is a cool extension that makes it so you can easily measure and part of a page and it’ll give you the width and height of that selection in pixels.
If you are running PPV traffic then Window Size is an essential extension. Window Size tells you the viewable window space when you resize your window. So, if you’re building a PPV landing page for LeadImpact then you want your landing page to look good in a 775×400 window. With the Window Size Chrome extension it’s really easy to see that! Just open your landing page in a new window and resize that window. You will see the size of the window at the bottom right of your browser. Super easy.
Use tools to make your life easier. Google Chrome has some awesome extensions that can do just that. Check out the extensions I mentioned above, our PeerFly Chrome Extension, and the Chrome Web Store for even more great extensions. Let’s make some money!
