One of the tasks you often want to do is to check which page your site shows on for a particular search engine with a particular query. If you do this entirely by hand it becomes quite tedious. You go to Google, or Bing, or Yahoo and type in your search term. Then on the search page you have to scroll through the page looking for your site. And if you don’t find it you click the “next” link and repeat.
if (window.find("HB Design"))
else if (location.href.match(/yahoo/))
else if (location.href.match(/google/))
You can copy and paste this code into an on-line bookmarklet generator to create the bookmarklet. I used http://mrcoles.com/bookmarklet/. Before you do, change the first line (where it says “HB Design”) to what your site name is, as it shows in the search results.
Once you create the bookmarklet all you need to do is perform a search in either Google, Bing, or Yahoo. Then click on the bookmarklet. If your site is on the page the bookmarklet will show an alert. If not, it will automatically load the next page. Just keep clicking the bookmarklet after each page is loaded until you find your site.
