This is how the settings look.

Canonical Inspector by tricd.co

 

The extension will show you if the rel canonical tag in the page source code matches the URL being shown in the web browser.  If it matches the icon displays grey and if it doesn't match the icon displays blue.

  Canonical tag matches the URL

   Canonical tag does not match the URL

 

Redirect Path by Ayima

The plugin does exactly as the names suggest and show the user the redirect path used to get to the final URL.

Helpful as shows the user if the redirect is 301 or 302.

Can also be used to show header status codes such as normal 200 OK status and 404 Error status.

.

Check My Links by Paul Livingstone

The plugin will check all the links on the page and show you which links are broken.

Great for finding where the broken link is on the page and great for finding your link is placed within page content.

Open SEO Stats by www.chromefans.org

This extension offers a whole host of information and is great for finding out pretty much anything you want to know with regards to SEO for the website you're looking at.

Information can be obtained specific to the page but you can also find out domain specific data too.

One of our favourite features is the Google cache check.

SEO QUAKE BY SEOQUAKE.COM

seo quake chrome extension by seoquake

SEO Quake is a great extension but it must be configured correctly otherwise, it won't be long before you are getting captcha requests from Google, this is because by default the extension is set to Load parameters on page load.

Avoid any captcha issues but setting all Load parameters to "By request"

WAPPALYZER BY WAPPALYZER.COM

  • web servers
  • content management systems
