Wow!!! I just realize that we have just so many social networks, bookmarking sites, pdf sites that it is almost impossible to use all these sites effectively. Even the once we signed up to, we don’t frequent most of them due to time or feeling just too tired to attend to them.
I know that as bloggers we are very busy, but imaging that you have a clean program (free from any search engine penalty) that can help you make post on all social sites or selected networks with just a click of your mouse, would you love that?
Hey! Hey!! I am not talking about buffer or hootsuit here, no-no… because I know that your minds are in that direction. Just hold on because with time, you’ll definitely know what I am talking about… so shall we move on?
Sometime last year, I was looking for a clean way to automate my work because I’ll tell you that I joined a lot of social sites that it is hard to cope with all if you have a second job .
After a lot of searches and still no hope of what I was looking for, a friend of mine introduced me to an addon that can record your web browser activity and then play it exactly as it was recorded. I tested the addon for so many months and as each day passes by, my love for the simple app grows.
Are you also using the extension? Then you must have known what I am talking about but if you don’t, I am talking about “imacros”.
Why do I need this?
If you’re that type that is in a lot of social sites as I do and you’re very busy to attend to them all, then imacros is just the perfect tool.
If you are a busy parent and you need to cut down some time you spent online in other to attend to some other works, then this tool might be the solution you’ve been searching for
Imacros was created to automate the most repetitious tasks on the web. That means, If you have some sites you frequent on a daily bases, you can automate most of them while you attend to some other aspect of the internet. Indeed, this cool gem is going to make your internet life easier as a blogger.
How I automate most of my internet works with imacros…
Most times, when I get caught up in work, I use imacros to share my posts on delicious, Facebook, stumbleupon, bizsugar… or when I am in short of justretweet credit, I just let imacro do the job while I attend to some other stuff . Awesome, right?
This is how you too can use it…
You can download imacros extension on Mozilla by using Mozilla addon search box or you can simply download it through here
If you are not using Firefox, you can download chrome extension through here.
Install the extension and enable it for use…
You will be asked to restart your browser after installment. After restarting your browser, you will see a dialog box like the image below.
Click the “Yes” button and you’re done with the first round…
Note: in most cases, the box doesn’t appear… so if you do not see the box, just move on to the next step
You will see the imacros little icon located by the right hand side beside your address bar >>> Click the little icon and a little box/tab will appear at the left hand side of your browser…
Before you type the web address you want to record in your address bar, make sure you click on the “Record” button and click “Record Macro” See image below
Now click “Stop” when you’re through with what you’re doing on that particular site >>> after that, a dialogue box will open asking you to save your work. See image below…
Now click “Save As & Close” another box will open >>> change the current name to a name you’ll remember and click “Ok” and you’re done.
Anytime you want to replay what you recorded earlier, just click on the imacros little icon >>> the tab by the left will open >>> just click the name you store your recording as and click “Play” located below then click “Play Macro”.
Note: if you want to play it repeatedly, just click “Play Loop” and set the “Current” and “Max” to your own satisfaction.
What you record earlier will play and works on his own as if you are the person doing it yourself. It sounds safe right?
Over to you
Now you can actually automate your web browser, record and replay repetitious works.
