Efficiency - Streamlining your workflow with the writers toolbar

If you consider your online writing to be a business enterprise then you have to consider your use of time and the return of investment you get from your time expenditure.

Sit back and reflect for a moment, how much of your time is spent "googling", searching through your bookmarks, typing parts of the uRL you can remember in hopes the whole thing will spring up in your address bar.

How many clicks does it take?

This time adds up. Its a waste. Its poor efficiency and its boring.

With this in mind I use I all the Firefox add-ons and plug-ins that can streamline my workflow, but there is only so much space for my frequently accessed links. I also work at various stations and am a little put off when my ease of access is limited or even just different.

With this in mind, I created this toolbar for myself.

Online Writers Toolbar Functions

A HubPages Custom Search - but the options allow this to be changed to any search you prefer.

Hubpages Direct Links:

  • HubPages Sign In
  • HubPages Forum


  • Hubpages Stats
  • Google Analytics

Affiliate Log-Ins

  • Adsense
  • Amazon
  • ePn


  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • Social Backlink sites - Xomba, SheToldMe, Redgage


  • Adwords Keyword Tool
  • TKA
  • TheChallenge

FaceBook Connect - You can log in through facebook and have one click access to :

  • Home
  • Profile
  • Messages
  • Photos
  • Inbox
  • Friend Requests
  • (and various other FB functions)

Email Notification

(Optional) If you like you can turn on email notification which will give you an alert when you receive a new mail, it is disabled by default, but it is a very useful function if you are not already using something similar.

Additional Settings

After installing the toolbar, check though the toolbar options and additional settings to remove any features or add additional features such as online radio or weather (disabled by default)

The toolbar is certified spyware and adware free and is created through the same respectable service as The New York times Toolbar.

How much does it cost? .....umm. its a toolbar, its free, have fun! and good luck in your online writing!

Direct download link above - further information and alternate download link available here:

Suggested Use

Ultimate Online Writers Network Wheel

Quickly access all the suggested sites as you write variants of your articles for maximum earnings and seo value.

The 60 day Challenge at Hubpages

Here at Hubpages, a small group of Authors participate in an online challenge that involves 30 hubs written in 30 days followed by 30 days of promotion - this toolbar was created catering to the needs of such individuals - with quick access to backlink sites and keyword tools - a small menu exists that gives quick access to the materials we use in our challenge and a feed of our latest works. These tools and sites would be useful to any online writer.

Make the Perfect Workspace

You will notice that there are no current links to social bookmark sites, this author does not use manual bookmarking so they were not included, but ..if one was to use such methods the toolbars created by each site create a better functionality than I could provide as they save your profile information and pre-populate your forms.


A direct link to Twitter exists in the toolbar, but a better functionality could be achieved with this plug in.

This will allow you to post directly to twitter by typing directly into your address bar , you can also auto-post any site you choose to while browsing .

Future Updates

Additions for :

  • Yahoo Site Explorer
  • Google Wonder Wheel
  • Domain Search

are planned.

What additions do you feel should be made to make this the Ultimate Online Writers Toolbar?


in 2012 the 60DC Toolbar received a major upgrade and became the Online Writers Toolbar, two years of feedback and usage statistics were used to optimize and expand upon its functionality.

See the latest revisions here:

All the information and features showcased in this article are still active and accessible in the upgraded version of the toolbar.

      @ES - Updates are available in the toolbar options - under the title - Upgrade -

      I will let you know personally when further modules are integrated.. because I use SEO Quake and Site Explorer is incorporated , I didnt consider it when originally designing the toolbar -

      Brilliant Hub Sunforged. I am really looking forward to the future update as I frequently use site explorer to keep a check on my backlinks. Using that functionality from Market Samurai is just so slow and their system gets freezed as well. Do notify us of the update. Rated up and bookmarked!!
