A Chrome Extension Every Online Shopper Should Have To Avail Best Product Prices

Online shopping is fiercely growing in India – Infact, it is now getting to a level where offline retailers have started to get worried. But as a consumer, it is time to rejoice, as online shopping offers them many benefits, the biggest of them all being the low prices on products.

However, how does an online shopper get the best price while shopping online?

There are so many online stores that it is nearly impossible to know the site you are buying from has the best rates on the product you are purchasing. Yes, there are plenty of online price comparison sites like Junglee, MySmartPrice and many more, where you can see comparative pricing and that is definitely one way of discovering best price.

But there is another much easier way to achieve this…

Buyhatke, an online shopping price comparison site has come up with a nifty chrome extension – Compare Hatke - which does a great job for you. As a shopper you do not need to visit a comparison site to find best prices. It will bring the best prices to you even though you may be on one of the many ecommerce sites!

Buy Hatke – How Does it Work?

First off, the user needs to install a chrome extension (it works only on Chrome). Once it is installed, you are all set. Just visit your favourite shopping sites and search for product you want. When you are on the product page, the extension will seamlessly find prices from over 50 stores and will show you the site offering best price on the product that you are looking at.

For example: Lets say, I was planning to buy Samsung Galaxy Note 2, and looking at price on Amazon, the “Compare hatke” chrome extension will kick in, search for best prices from various different price and show it to you on the page in the top bar.

There is also another interesting feature called “Watch Price” – Everytime you are on a product page, you will see a button called “watch price”, which will allow you to follow the price changes of the product. So everytime the price of the product drops, you will get an email letting you know the same.

My Take

What I really like about this extension is the non-intrusive nature. It does not force you to do anything out of the way. It definitely helps you in making a more informed product buying decision. Also, what I like is, it does show prices from most of the ecommerce stores in India including eBay!

Give it a try, I am sure you will end up saving few bucks on your next purchase…

On a separate note, I suggest you also read about pitfalls of making online purchases. Sometimes lower costs come at a price, which you should be aware of!

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Another SEO tool drops the word “SEO”

This guest post is by Majestic’s Marketing Director, Dixon Jones, who explains the reasons for their recent name change.
Majestic, the link intelligence database that many SEOs have come to use on a daily basis, has dropped the “SEO” from it’s brand and from its domain name, to become Since most people won’t have used Google’s site migration tool before, here’s what it looks like once you press the “go” button:

In actual fact – there’s a minor bug in the tool. The address change is to the https version of (which GWT makes us register as a separate site) but that message incorrectly omits that. Fortunately, elsewhere in GWT its clear the omission is on Google’s side, not a typo from the SEO. It is most likely that the migration tool was developed before the need for Google to have separate verification codes for http and https versions of the site.

There were a few “nay sayers” on Twitter upset that Majestic might be deserting it…
