5 Useful Reverse Domain IP Checking Tools

SMS Text

There are a lot of people who are sure domain IP address as well as domain IP neighbors have nothing to do with SEO. I’ve been in SEO long enough to be sure in only one thing: there are only a few very basic theories we thing we can be sure about. Most theories are too fuzzy and complex to be clear to anyone.

Today’s tools are quite simple and basic but you should seriously have a couple of them bookmarked (at the end of the post I’ll link to the cases when those tools may turn useful):

The site has several free tools apart from reverse IP checking: WhoIs LookUp, Network information Google gadget, etc. Speaking about Reverse IP checking feature, I like how it draws your attention to sites on the same IP that “appear to have explicit content” (obviously based on the “bad” words used in the domains). We don’t know if these sites can in any way affect your Google records but it is some useful information to keep in mind:

This is a handy tool that combines several basic tools allowing you to find out the tool IP address, see headers sent by the server, do a whois lookup, etc. The best thing about the tool is that it is really quick and easy, so have it bookmarked for some basic tasks:



The tool displays the list of sites on the same IP address in the alphabetical order:

    Many thanks for a resourceful tools. I requested a link from a major hotel site in NZ, and they directed me to a huge batch of directories (which all looked similar and skeletal in appearance) for listing my blog. I think the hotel (or their Web SEO), created them as “dumping” grounds for smaller sites/blogs asking for links. Thus I wonder if any of the above tools can indicate if there is a IP/Domain type link between the directories and the main hotel site…
