Check Your Competitors Rich Snippets Quickly With This Bookmarklet

Feb 13, 2012 - 8:16 am 0 by

AJ Kohn posted a new quick tool he put together to allow people to quickly test a page's rich snippets markup.

The tool is very basic, it is a bookmarklet that takes you to the Google Rich Snippets testing tool but automatically fills in the URL of the page you are on, so you can save a step.

Here is the JavaScript for the bookmarlet:

javascript:void(window.open(%27http://www.google.com/ webmasters/tools/richsnippets?url=%27+window.location.href,%27_blank%27));

You can use it by dragging the following link to your browser favorites bar: Rich Snippets Testing Tool

It will save you a lot of time if you are the type of person who goes around the web looking at how your competitors or third party sites implement their rich snippets.

It is fun to see how sites use it, if they have coding errors or if they are using markups that might be worthy of reporting.
