SEO’s have to deal with an overwhelming amount of information everday. Tools that aid in the speed of gathering and disseminating that information more quickly are essential. It’s all about saving those nanoseconds each day so that you can have more time for aimless chatter on forums in the evening.

Bookmarklets are a wonderful tool for making life as a power surfer a little bit easier. They have been replaced in some respects by extensions which also serve to make things quicker and easier as well. There are a lot of similarities and a few differences between extensions and bookmarklets. If you’d like some fun with extensions, there’s a list of some favorite Firefox extensions here.

Bookmarklets are basically small pieces of javascript code that go in the bookmarks toolbar of your browser for easier access to simple commands that you do often. An example would be checking whois information. Having one-click access to this information saves from typing it in repeatedly throughout the day if you do it often. Here is an example of a bookmarklet for whois.sc.
