As you know, there are lots of plugins and extensions to spice up your browser, be it Chrome or Firefox. Some plug ins are of no use but some work extremely well and really helps us to work more efficiently. Here I am going to list out the 5 great Google Chrome Extensions to track your blog’s performance. Trust me, I have been using these plugins and it really works well. Saves time for going to individual websites to see how your blog is performing.

But first we should make sure we don’t crowd the browser with all the extensions that we have installed. Just keep the ones that are needed otherwise there is a possibility of your browser to slow down. In my case, I kept the ones needed to track the performance which I will be mentioning below.

iSeo Extension iSeo Extension  

This extension simply shows the page rank of the blog/website. According to the developers, this extension not only shows the page rank but also tells you how much PR will be transferred to your site if you have a do-follow link on that particular page. This option would be best for those who would seek to advertise their blog or product. Moreover, this small extension also tells you how many external, internal and no-follow links are on the blog.

Alexa Traffic Rank 

The title says it all. With your mouse hovered on the small icon you can easily view how much your blog has risen or…fallen. By clicking it, you get more in depth info such as traffic rank in home and abroad, total links and many much more.

 Adsense Publisher Tool  

One of my favourite extensions from the lot.  This is the best way to monitor your adsense earnings in real time. You do not need to go all the way to your adsense dashboard as with only a click you can have all the info you require. ( see the pic below ). Saves a lot of time indeed !

As you can see from the picture above, the box lets you view your accounts summary, custom channels, url channels and overall lifetime revenue. What I like about this extension is the ‘In site ad overlay’ feature. By enabling this option, it shows you which ad box turned out to be profitable. It would be much more easier to analyse where to put the ads which would attract your visitors.


Grade your site speed with Yslow checker ! Well it doesn’t show you how many seconds it takes for your site to load, what it does is, according to the developers, it analyses the page and suggests ways to improve the performance based on  on a set of rules for high performance web pages . For blogs, be sure to select the ‘Small site or Blog’ option from the rule sets at the top right. This would then give you much accurate results and suggestions that you can follow to turn your blog more faster. The faster your blog, the more visitors you would have. There’s always pingdom.com and loads.in to check your speed but they do not provide suggestions like YSlow offers.

 Gmail Checker 

You can guess what this extension does ! It simply notifies you of any unread new mails in your gmail inbox. Well, this might not be an extension to track your blog’s performance but you do of course get mails regarding new comments, ad offers, guest post offers and so on. With this extension, you can respond to their mail or comments faster than before resulting in building good relationships!

  13. Buddy Hodges says

    Hi Mushfique,

    Thanks for the suggestions. I will try iSEO and definitely Yslow. I tend to be a "packrat" and a glutten for tech tools. I love leverage. Therefore, my computer frequently gets bogged down with too many apps of all kinds running.

    I do use Chrome regularly with extensions for "Clip to Evernote" and "Shareaholic." One of the biggest challenges I have on the internet is to prioritize and eliminate some things. I dream of getting a SUPER computer that can handle all the stuff I accumulate.



    1. Mushfique says

      Buddy, the same happens to me by stuffing a lot of plugins in one place and once the browser slows down, that is when I realise I have done something wrong and need to clean up ! I share the same dream of yours Buddy, but the advancement of technology is such that once you have that 'super' computer, it will become a less important one in 5 years ! 😛

  14. Sandy says

    All these chrome extensions are really good I like all the extensions. But in those list I prefer iSeo Extension and YSlow more. Thanks for sharing this information with us.

    1. Mushfique says

      You are welcome Sandy ! Thanks to iSEO, viewing updates on my blog have become much easier 🙂

  21. [email protected] a boy says

    While I can't comment on the extensions themselves because I am not an user, I find it very interesting how the seo people are moving from FireFox to Chrome. Wondering about the impact that Google's browser could have on the webmasters and the internet as a whole… Is Chrome the way of a future?

    Btw, YSlow and Alexa tool are very familiar to FireFox users too:)

    1. Mushfique says

      I used to use Firefox a lot but Chrome is indeed very attractive. I mean, its very user friendly which I cannot find in Firefox. Chrome is indeed the way of the future and I am sure Google will come up with more upgrades to make it even more better!

    1. Mushfique says

      Your Welcome Qasim! 🙂 Thanks for commenting 🙂 I am sure those extensions would help you a lot 🙂

  26. Ileane says

    Hi Mushfique, I'm a Chrome extensions junkie and I have so many of them that I have to get rid of a few from time to time just so I can see them all on my browser bar. LOL! I love the gmail checker and the Alexa Traffic checker. You should also check out SEO Site Tools because it will give you Alexa, Google PR, Compete, Quantcast, SEMRush, SEOMoz and a bunch more all in one place. Thanks for the list Mushfique.

    1. Mushfique says

      Hello Ileane ! First of all thanks for your comment. Trust me I have the same problem. 😛 There are so many awesome extensions available, it just attracts me to put all of them beside the address bar ! But I did face the consequences. My chrome browser never froze but when the list was crowded, the whole computer froze ! After removing most of it it’s all back to normal ! I presumed the overcrowding was the main problem as the ‘freezing’ never occured again

      Will check out SEO Site Tools…i guess its similar to SEO quake!!

      Do stop by again Ileane

    Saved as a favorite, I love your web site!

  28. Margarita says


    I have a question. Does it matter, when you blog, to do this via a browser with all toolbars, like alexa and google installed. If I go to a public computer and do the blogging from there, does it make a difference for the ranking? thanks.
