If you are a hands-on website owner who personally manages the optimization of your webpage, it is very important that you are equipped with the necessary tools to make your tasks easier and more convenient.  These tools are collectively known as extensions which can automatically be used if you are using Google Chrome as your browser.

Extensions are applications or plugins developed by web programmers to run in browser platforms.   For search engine optimization, there are specific extensions made solely to SEOs and webmasters to help them in analyzing and optimizing webpages.  As there are lots of extensions featured in the Chrome directory, we selected our top 5 extensions that are very useful (based from our experience) in analyzing a webpage’s popularity, links, status, and on page characteristics (which would take time to detect if done manually).
