During the SEO tasks for my website, I am using Chrome extensions that help me to be more effective and to save a precious time during my workday.
Those extensions can reduce time by helping capture a screen, manage our passwords for all the websites that we are working on and more.
The Google Chrome extensions store very big and sometimes it’s not so simple to find something that you are looking for.
More than that – sometimes you cannot believe to the reviews because you don’t know if they are real or not.
1. Awesome screenshot
A great extension is Awesome Screenshot that allows us to take static photos and also to take video clips from the desktop.
You can understand from his name the Awesome Screenshot is very awesome.
You can choose to capture selected area or an entire page.
Also – you can use local images with an upload option and also you can capture your desktop which can be a very useful option if you are creating the tutorial.
This plug-in can also offer delay capture which is an option that helps us with capturing hover or animation component in our web page.
The formats that the extension is supporting are PNG and JPG. The video file will be exported as MP4.

Another highly important and useful abstention is the Tag assistant by Google.

3. AdBlock Plus
Another extension that we cannot imagine our web life without it – is the AdBlock Plus (ABP).
This extension is the most popular and effective ad blocker that you can find.
You need to remember that Adblock can sometimes create conflict with the daily work on banners and SEO, and you might want to turn it off during the work hours. If you are not dealing with SEO or programming, Adblock can be a perfect solution for work hours too.
You can customize the list of the Adblock and block some specific ads on the website, and also create some smart filter in for some ads.
The last thing about Adblock that this extension doesn’t block automatically all the ads in all the website because sometimes there are banners that running from CMS and not from Google publishing to or some other ads serving system.
