The Listing Checker

The Listing Checker requires a JavaScript enabled browser (eg: Netscape or Explorer 3.x or better). Enter your URL below, and when the page replots, it will contains some special links that will pop up new windows that query several major search engines. I've just revised this tool so that it doesn't use Javascript, so it should now work on almost every browser!

Not all sites allow you to directly check for the existance of a particular URL in their index. In such "inexact" cases, you'll be able to do a search that displays both your URLs and the URLs of sites that link to you.

The URL you enter should be the "root" URL of your site; for me this might be "", and for you it might be "", for example. However, please note that this checker works best if you are searching for a domain (such as "") as opposed to a particular directory of pages (like "").

Root URL of your site (tip: you can sometimes get better results by omitting the "www." (ie: use "" instead of ""):

A single word that is guaranteed to be on your home page (but is not a common word like "a", "the", etc.) Some sites need this to find your page!:

Note: please do not use single- or double-quotes (' \") in the fields of this form. It will screw up the query, and thus is not allowed.

Bonus feature: if you enter your email address here, I'll email you a list of URLs that you can use at any time to check whether you are listed. This is very handy if you have an email program that lets you click on links.

About this site...
This site was developed on a Macintosh, programmed in WebSiphon, and served by WebStar. The author, on those exceedingly rare occasions when he does think, indeed thinks differently.

It looks (and works) better when you use version 4.0 or better of Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer, but can be used with any tables-capable browser. ©1997-1999 Robert Woodhead, All Rights Reserved.™, Tooter™, Secret Net Tools™, MultiSubmitter™, Rankulator™, BaldSpotCam™, and ShareService™ are trademarks of Robert Woodhead.
