    Once again Smashing Apps has proven itself to be of inestimable value to us new bloggers. Thanks guys!

    I think that extensions like easycomment, Rank Cehcker, and SEO for Firefox are great. Also lately I have been using Firebug a lot to make sure that my pages are loading quick and do not have any slow parts like externally hosted pics or banners

    really useful addons as my recent experience.

    Too bad there is not an app that can make blogs interesting.

  5. lliseil says:

    Thank you for sharing those add-ons. I use 4 of them already and find them very useful, i.e. time savers 🙂

    Nice list. I’m not sure about domain lookup… I looked at their website and they don’t say anything about not recording lookups. They could be storing domain ideas, but are likely just out to make affiliate commission.

    Have you seen SEOMoz Toolbar for Firefox was recently updated? It’s pretty amazing. Shows new domain and page authority metrics and allows you to do ALOT of SEO research without leaving a site.

    I have more info on SEOMoz toolbar here: http://www.dotsauce.com/2010/03/24/seomoz-toolbar/

    You should also checkout linkify – http://axemclion.github.com/#projects/linkify.html. It is a ubiquity command that lets you convert text in your blog to links without having to navigate out to search for the text and then paste one of the search results.
    Simply select the text, start ubiquity and type linkify. You will be shown the search results page for the word and you can click on a search link to convert the word to a hyperlink.

    I love this, I especially like that SEOQuake, and FireFile, that would make my life much much easier, I hope to see more diggs like this.The one thing I don’t think is a must have though is that whois tool, its not like your going to by a domain name everyday.

    overall great post, just added 2 of those extensions 😀

    Hmmm, All are good but not really called “must-have”. Some add-ons I’m using is email Manager, ySEO…

  11. Daniel says:

    SEO quake is one of my favorite extension.

    SEO Quake is a super timesaver!

  13. Tola F. says:

    Nice list, but I think there could have been some other extensions included… I know I can’t live with my SEOmoz bar for instance,because it gives be basic information without going anywhere. But hey, that’s just my opinion…

    what’s wrong with my comment?
