12 Useful Browser Bookmarklets For Domain Name and SEO Research

By on April 28, 2010

A bookmarklet looks and works just like a normal browser bookmark, but contains simple JavaScript code to perform a unique task. Bookmarklets put some amazing tools and resources right at your fingertips and save you time.

In this article the bookmarklets may appear like regular hyperlinks, but you will need to drag and drop these links to your browser toolbar or save them as bookmarks for them to function.

Consider creating a folder to drag them to if you plan on using many.

Domain Name Bookmarklets

These bookmarklets, when clicked, will provide you quick access to important information about the current website you are browsing.

Bookmarklet: DomainTools (Drag & Drop link to your toolbar)

I hope you enjoy and make good use of these domain name and SEO bookmarklets. While you’re at it, be sure to drag DotSauce Magazine into your browser bookmarks as well!

Please leave a comment if you have any suggestions for another tool or service that could use a bookmarklet and I will consider adding it to the list.
