Free Firefox Add-ons Help Internet Businesses

March 9th, 2013 6 comments

If you are not familiar with how Firefox add-ons work, here is a quick introduction. Firefox is a free browser that anyone can use. But unlike other browsers, Firefox allows third party developers to come up with useful applications. These applications can be installed on the browser, and they appear to be part of the browser. For this reason, they are also commonly referred to as Firefox extensions.

Today, there are many different types of Firefox extensions available for download. Mostly, they exist to serve specific interest groups. For example, Firefox extensions for online business owners have been on the rise. These tiny but useful applications show important information about websites or web pages. Such information include traffic rankings, Google page rank and more.

Recently, GadgetAdvisor, a newly launched technology website offers another useful Firefox extension – the Google cache checker. This is a light weight application that shows whether a web page has been cached by Google. If a web page has been cached, a green arrow shows on the status bar. Otherwise, a red X is displayed.

Obviously, many online marketers will find this extension useful when they are considering whether to acquire links. For instance, when considering whether to submit a URL to a web directory, a quick glance at the status bar will let the marketer know whether the site has been properly indexed by Google or not. If the status bar shows a red X, perhaps the marketer may want to skip that directory.

Similarly, an online marketer can adopt the same approach when buying advertising on a site. If the sites contain many web pages that are caches by Google, chances are, it will have higher traffic levels.

This is also useful when buying websites. Usually, sites that are well indexed by the search engines and can supply proof of organic traffic are worth more. As you perform your due diligence and examine the site, don’t forget to check your status bar to see whether the site you are buying is cached by Google or not. Perhaps the seller is trying to sell the site because it has been recently banned by Google! Fortunately, now you have an extension that will warn you before it’s too late.

Sometimes, you may be running search engine optimization campaigns for new websites. With the extension installed in your browser, you no longer have to deliberately visit Google to check whether your new sites have been indexed. As you continue working on your sites, you can always monitor your status bar to see if the web pages have been cached.

As you can see, even a simple Firefox extension like the Google cache checker can come in very handy for online business owners.

You may be surprised to learn that just like the Firefox browser, the Google cache checker is also free for download. You may download and install this application from the GadgetAdvisor website with no strings attached. The only condition is that you don’t host the extension on your own site. If you wish to allow other users to get their hands on this extension, simply refer them to GadgetAdvisor with a simple text link.

How to Beat Competitors Using SEO

March 2nd, 2013 3 comments

It does not matter what your business does, it will have competitors. If it is from selling baby clothes to web design there will always be people trying to be cheaper and better than you. If they are online they will be fighting with you for that number one spot in Google and to be able to beat them, you must know how to successfully compete.

Search Engine Optimization is a hugely important way in which you can compete with your competitors online but to be able to do these you need to know who you are up against just as much as you know about your products and services.

You have to take a look at competitor’s sites and come up with a list of all of the sites that may be selling the same thing or offering the same services. Look out for the ones at the top of search engine lists as these are the ones that are obviously doing well. While you are on the site be sure to take a look at the design, keywords used and anything else that could make this site the top of Google. You could also do a cheeky check of their back links with a back link checker to see where they are linked to, and maybe as for your link to be on there too.

When you have done your research you should then start to search for ways to increase the SEO Value of your site by thinking of better keywords that will be more effective, different content, maybe a new layout that is SEO friendly and anything else that you can think of to make you stand out above your competitor. This may take some time and it is not a one off, you need to do this regularly to stay better than the rest.

As well as trying to look at other’s ideas you should try to come up with things that your competitors haven’t thought of yet. Different and new ideas will increase your position and ranking but make sure this is tested and successful before you depend too much on it.

Keep going over your research findings and decide what is good and what is lame and keep an eye on what your competitors are trying out. If you know your competitors you are halfway to being a success.

Should I Use SEO Software? (part 1)

February 27th, 2013 5 comments

Search engine optimisation can be a laborious job that is why there are several tools out there to make your life easier but is their any substitute for human intervention? In this article I will go over some search engine optimisation software and tools and discuss the pros and cons of each. As I have said there are many available but automating your SEO can be dangerous as every website is different and some of the advice these tools give you can be of little help.

Directory submission software

Many webmasters feel submitting to lots of directories can help their website rank better. Unfortunately submitting to web directories can be time consuming as you have to first best identify the most suited category to your website. You then have To manually type your website title, description and keyphrases in to the web form before submitting. So to do this on a large scale can take a long time. However there is help with directory submission software, what this software will do is automatically fill in you’re the directories submission form.

All you need to do is set up the form details in advance and the software will fill in the details. The problem arises where you have to select a category as every directory has different names for their categories there are no way to automatically do this. I have seen claims by some software that it can do this for you but I don’t believe that is truly achievable. So in conclusion you can purchases software that can cut don’t the time it takes to submit to directories but there is no way at present to do it fully automatically.

Article submission software

The same applies to articles submission as it does to directories however the same problems arise but you should really only submit your article to one directory as duplicate content issues will arise and most article directories want the articles that they are displaying to be original so the best approach to this is just doing it manually. Although there is software available to do this but I would recommend against it for the above reasons.

Hiring a search engine optimisation company can help with choosing the best tools for your website design and they can do all the hard work for you.

This is the end of part one look out for part 2 coming very soon where I will discuss ranking checker software, Pagerank checker software and a few more besides.

Just Started Blogging There are a Few Steps You Should Take

February 24th, 2013 2 comments

So I’ll discuss a little about the wordpress platform, themes, recommended plugins and some tips.

If you have just started blogging, there are a few steps you should take.

1. Activate the akismet plugin. This plugin comes preinstalled with wordpress but you have to activate it and get a wordpress key (which takes 2 minutes). Akismet blocks spam comments on your blog, so if you choose to enable comments on your posts (which you should) then this plugin is a must, and best of all it’s a set and forget.
2. Choose a theme. You could use the default theme, but it’s way overused. The ideal is to choose a theme that is very user friendly, with good link visibility, nice color contrast, and a nice and attractive layout. If you know how to design a theme or can change a free theme to your liking, then you should do so, unique content and layout designs are always a better choice than free themes that are probably used by hundreds or more. A good place to get themes is the WordPress Theme Directory. Another one is searching google for “free wordpress themes” 🙂
3. Decide on a permalink structure, permalinks are the actual links to your blog posts, and wordpress gives you a lot of flexibility here. For maximum SEO performance, you should simply choose “yourdomain.com/blog-post-title” but this really comes down to personal preference as I personally don’t think it makes that much of a difference, so you might prefer “yourdomain.com/year/month/blog-post-title” that is also search engine (and user) friendly. Whatever you choose, do activate the permalink feature because otherwise you’ll have those ugly query strings all over your urls.
4. Download and install the Google XML Sitemaps Generator Plugin. This plugin takes care of updating and submitting your sitemap to Google and other search engines. This allows search engine to know more about the structure of your website.
5. Download and install the All In One SEO Pack Plugin. This plugin optimizes your blogs output for search engine optimization. Optimizes keywords, page titles and more.
6. Install the Share This plugin or a similar social bookmarking plugin. This should go right after your posts along with a reminder letting visitors know they can subscribe to your feed. This way visitors have some options when they finish reading your posts. If they like your post, they will be able to quickly submit it to whatever social bookmarking sites they use or e-mail to a friend.
7. Create an About page. You should use this page to introduce yourself to the visitors, your background, your work, what you do and like and what people should expect from your blog. This gives your blog a personal touch that helps visitors to identify you as an actual human behind the blog. Also consider placing one or several pictures of yourself on the about page (or on a photos page if you prefer) as this also greatly increases the human awareness of the visitor.
8. Create a Contact page. You can simply put up a page with e-mail instructions or use a contact me plugin like Secure and Accessible PHP Contact Form. This gives confidence to the visitor that he can reach you if he so chooses and, like the about page, gives the human touch.
9. Create an account on FeedBurner for your blog and give your visitors a visible option to subscribe to your blog by RSS and by e-mail (FeedBurner takes good care of all this). This allows users to use an rss reader or just get your posts by e-mail. Most visitors never return so you should make it easy and worthwhile for them to subscribe to your blog and receive future updates.

Well, those are 9 of the things that I think are most common and needed, but I could go on, you should familiarize yourself as much as possible with wordpress (or your other blogging platform of choice), try out new plugins and optimize your theme. It’s a work in progress, but you shouldn’t let that get in the way of your posting.

You could consider setting up a password protected subdomain and creating a clone blog for testing (or install it on your own computer) because once you start getting traffic you shouldn’t go trying new things on your live site where things could break giving your visitors a bad surfing experience. A clone blog is obviously just a blog installation that matches your actual site with the same theme, same plugins and a few dummy posts so you can do your testing.

Once you get your blog ready to go, all that’s left to do is start posting! You should make a nice first post, introducing yourself briefly and letting the reader know that you have an About page with more details. You should give some idea of what visitors can expect from your blog posts.

Now for some quick blogging tips:

1. Make constant posts. You should try your best to do about 3 posts per week minimum. This all depends on your ability to express yourself with words. If you’re good at it, then post as much as you can, daily or even bidaily. If you’re not, well, then try to make at least 3 posts per week.
2. Use post titles wisely. Your post title is very important as it’s the part that will be most visible to the web. Create informative titles, for more details visit to www.your-own-blog.com the words you choose here will eventually make your site rank on google for some or all of those same keywords.
3. Make medium to long posts. Not saying that you can’t do small blog posts, you can and should, but you should try your best to create full length and keyword rich posts. Write your best and biggest posts as if the were articles with a small intro, content and conclusion.
4. Post about other blogs. Read blogs about the same topic than yours and link to them and do your own spin on the post, agree, for more details visit to www.blog-and-ping.com disagree, whatever. Basically try to engage in friendly debates with other bloggers.
5. Leave them wanting for more. End your posts with a small text about what you’ll be posting about next time. Be creative and suspenseful.
6. Proof read and spell check your post before publishing. Occasional typos are ok, but proof reading and using a spell checker should keep them to a minimum.
7. Have fun! You should be having fun blogging. If you’re just starting you can probably feel a little intimidated or sometimes don’t knowing what to post. But you shouldn’t stress to much about it, just take a break and post some other time. Blogging should be relaxing not stressful. Find inspiration around you.

Well and that’s it, there you have just some blogging tips to get you started. These are of course mostly geared to blogging beginners. You can do much more with blogs and use the blogging platform to create other type of niche sites and adsense sites but that is topic for a whole different article.

The SEO tips provided in the SEO training steps below are just the basic guidelines to follow with the layout of your website. It does not mean that when all the SEO techniques are implemented that you will have an immediate affect. For ethical search engine optimisation techniques to have impact could take up to 16 months depending on the length of time your website has been up and running and what industry you are targeting as SEO does vary depending on industry. The first step when carrying out SEO on your website is to define which keywords or search terms you would like to be found under. We help you with the keyword selection and you approve the final list of search terms you want to target for your seo campaign.

Keyword sources generally tend to include search tools such as Google adword keyword checker, overture and obvious keywords relative to your business. Most clients generally tend to already have an idea what they need to target for the SEO campaign and we elaborate further using the seo tools provided by Google.Keyword grouping involves an analysis into the keywords which have been agreed you for the SEO package. This SEO process is to define which keywords are to be targeted on certain pages within your website.

An old method many SEO companies use is to create a new page targeted for each keyword. Due to Google algorithm changes a more efficient way is to group keyword variations together and target these phrases across one optimized page. This reduces the risk of content repetition across a website which is essential for successful seo promotion. It is important to target key phrases on website pages with a relevant theme.We create unique content based on the agreed keywords for your SEO campaign. The content generated is then placed onto relevant pages on your site. We ensure not to spam the keyword density of the keywords targeted as over optimizing can have an adverse affect on your search engine ranking.Unique content plays an important part in seo as should the content appear anywhere else on the internet Google refer to this as ‘mirroring’ and could result in no positioning depending on how much content is copied on your website.

Things I Love About Google

February 18th, 2013 4 comments

The word Google is on the lips of young and old. Ask anyone a question and if they don’t know pat will come the answer “ask Google.” Among the many search engines in the World Wide Web, Google stands apart. Its unique, exciting, innovative, and a pioneer.
Like adventurers of yesteryears that sailed the un-chartered seas, Google sails the cyber universe in search of adventure.

Easy to use, Google is a free service with a mission to offer at a click the world’s information. A clever use of the mathematical term Googol, 1 followed by a 100 zeros, it just means infinite information presented in an organized way.

Google is not any ordinary set up its philosophy and commitment to cost containment just means that every employee in any part of the world is a multi-tasker and hands on contributor. Work and play are both inborn in Google staff that enjoy their work and are obsessive about creating search perfection. So, employees from all over the world, speaking dozens of languages, originating from widely differing yet colorful cultures have one thing in common “Google is their life and breathe of fresh air.”

It is simplicity and faith in its staff that has enabled Google to better the best. Every one thinks on the go and before a blink of an eye innovations are introduced -be it a spell checker or Google Number Search to facilitate use of Google from WAP phones. The keys to success lie in information has no end just beginnings, fast is better than slow, the motto is to provide instantaneous answers to surfer queries. The secret to the success is to focus on user needs and keep things simple. And do not stray from the “path.” The key is to concentrate on “search.”

What makes great business sense is the motto “do no evil.” This serves to reemphasize the business ideals and philosophies. In fact one thing people love about Google is that it stands by its beliefs. Google was unique in refusing to give in to a subpoena and submit search query records. On the other hand, Google has the sense to adapt to different needs, in China Google took a step in a different direction and started self-censoring human rights organizations.

Google has strayed into everyone’s hearts and become a part of everyday life. Gmail, Gtalk, blogs, news, Google maps, and more. Whatever a person needs or dreams about becomes a reality and what more it is at no cost to users. Googlers are friendly, helpful, spirited, and inspired. They evoke admiration among internet browsers. Its not just service Google has extremely good business sense.

Usability is their aim and simplicity their secret password. Anything complex is not evident to the user. Google realizes that to be ahead even non techies, young and old must be able to use the search engine and different services. They should not be confounded by complexities. No frontier is too far and no problem too great. If a problem exists Google will make all attempts to solve it.

Smart, devoted, and dedicated are three words that can aptly describe Googlers world wide.

Promoting Your Opportunity

February 15th, 2013 3 comments

If you choose to do business with a network marketing company plan on promoting your opportunity with your own website. Otherwise you will be giving business away to the competition. Network marketing companies provide cookie cutter websites for their distributors and expect them to refer people to that. To make this successful you need to be have direct contact with a prospective customer or distributor in person or on the phone.

The problem with this is that you don’t have the freedom to make your website your own unique creation. One that shows your personality and human side. Its basically a landing page, sales page, or order page. You can still build a downline of distributors and possibly even build a large enough group to make average or above average money. Some will go on to make huge amounts of money and retire on the residual income they are earning for the rest of their lives.

The benefit of having your own website is that you can develop it around keywords that will get you high ranking with the search engines. By building a theme based niche website for promoting your opportunity you position yourself as an expert in your field and become a solutions provider. If for some reason 6 months or 1 year, or at some time in the future you drop out of the network marketing company you are with you will still have your website that you can continue to develop and monetize off it on your terms.

As long as you are providing fresh content to your website on a consistent basis this becomes an investment in your future. Your own website and learning how to build a web page gives you freedom in your business you would not otherwise have. Thanks to the evolution of the internet and web 2.0 building a website is not as difficult as it once was. This gives you the latitude to promote more than one product or service and you can do it on one website.

The trick is to build a niche website that you can develop into a business with many different programs and products. The internet is here to stay and it offers many marketing advantages that offline does not, eventually everyone is going to have to learn how to use it.

Having your own website for promoting your opportunity as a network marketer is a must. It is a very handy tool, and when you learn the skills, you will be glad that you have one. Maybe not to rely on 100% but to use as another way to help build your business.

The problem is most people do not know how to build websites. They do not know how to drive traffic to them. And for the most part they don’t want to learn.

The moral of the story……get yourself your own website for promoting your opportunity. How you apply it is up to you. Just be smart about it and don’t ignore offsite methods which would blend well with onsite dynamics.

How To Choose The Right Site Builder For Promoting Your Opportunity.

Web builders have been introduced primarily to service entrepreneurs who don’t know how to program in HTML or any other programming knowledge but still want control and flexibility that comes from creating and maintain their own website. Using a good web site builder can make your life much easier.

Before purchasing a site builder for promoting your opportunity you have to determine what your needs are. For those involved with a network marketing company that is fairly easy to narrow down. You need a site builder for building content, making sales, and attracting traffic. Building a website/business does take time so don’t expect your site to have staggering numbers overnight. Once you build keyword focused content pages and the search engine spiders find your site the numbers will improve. The key is to keep adding more content. Each content page is another door for your visitors to find you. So the more doors there are the more popular you become as long as you are using the keywords properly and providing value and being a solutions provider.

Free Trial Or Demo

Most site builders will offer a free trial but you will still need to make the purchase first. The 30 day money back free trial is common with site builders. The best site builders will pro rate their guarantee for up to a year. Usually they never have to return the money because they do as advertised. If you are new to building a website for promoting your opportunity this gives you a chance to take it for a test drive and try out the tools. Keep in mind there is a lot to learn even without the need to know HTML coding. It can get overwhelming so I suggest capitalizing on the full 30 days to be sure you are comfortable. You will not learn everything in 30 days but you will get a good feel for the software.

Does the site builder require you to use their templates or can you create your own?

A large number of site builders will force you to use their templates. There are reasons for this the main one being it enables the site builder to keep their rates down. Another is they want their templates branded so others recognize them as to belonging to their software package. If you have to use their templates you are pretty much stuck but if they offer a large selection you should find one that suits your needs. Some site builders will allow you to customize your template right down to graphics, headers, and footers. Remember a pretty site doesn’t drive traffic to your opportunity. Content and the tools do.

Do They Provide You With A Free Domain Name?

Most do but some don’t. Choosing the right domain name for your opportunity is much more important than your look and feel. Your domain name should be relevant to your sites theme and keyword focused. Choosing “your name”.com usually won’t drive traffic to your site. I like to use longtail words ( three-or-more-words) in my domain name and page titles and connect them with dashes as shown. That is a matter of choice. Some people prefer to use more generic words to be found. Longtail words are more targeted. A good site builder should explain what longtail words are and why they are so important.

Do They Give You Enough Disk Space for images?

Is There A Limit To The Number Of Pages That You Can Build?

How many Sites Can You Build With The Site Builder?

The answer to the above questions comes down mostly to bandwidth. Unlimited bandwidth is what you want. Unless you plan on keeping your site small which is not recommended for promoting your opportunity. Also check into their security system and data storage.

Customer Service

Guides And Tutorials

If you find the answers to the above questions as favorable you very well may have found a site builder for promoting your opportunity that fits your needs. Do your research and you will be well on your way to a web site builder that meets your needs and gives you quality, professional results at a reasonable price.

Site Builder Reviews For Promoting Your Opportunity.

Go Daddy – Website Tonight

Go Daddy offers a web builder that is called Website Tonight which comes with three plans of varying sizes. Each plan has different pricing options based on how far in advance you want to pay. The purchase of any one of these plans comes with free hosting but you still need to purchase your domain name which you can get for a discount.

Website Tonight is an online software package that operates using JavaScript which is more than enough to get a nice website built for promoting your opportunity. Building a 50 to 75 page website using this software should cause few problems. The main problem that Go Daddy has is when the sites reach the 100 page mark. Things start to go slow and if you are building your pages on the software rather than in a text editor the system may lose your work. This can be very frustrating. I always write my content in a text editor and save them to a file on my computer. Not only for Website Tonight but also for other web builders that I use as well as Squidoo and Hub Pages. It is safest, it has spell checker, and I can always have access to the pages in the event of an emergency.

GoDaddy has a great selection of templates to choose from and a large quantity of templates. You also have the ability to customize your templates to suit your wants and needs. For more experienced users you can insert your own HTML script.

Go Daddy’s customer service is more than above average. They address the issue and help solve problems in a friendly manner. I have had several occurrences to talk with them and my experiences were pleasant and more importantly my query was answered.

All in all Go Daddy is a good choice for promoting your opportunity. I would rate it as average as for site builders and once you get used to it its fairly easy to use.

Site BuildIt Review

The Cream of The Crop

Site Build It also referred to as SBI is all that it is advertised to be. Dr. Ken Envoy its creator has put together a massive set of tools in a user friendly software package that “gets the click”. SBI is famous for C-T-P-M. Content-Traffic-Presell-Monetize. SBI comes with a 10 day action guide which leads you down a path to building a profitable web business. SBI is a network marketers dream because it was originally built with mlmers in mind. Promoting your opportunity with SBI and utilizing the tools, tutorials, and guide is a recipe for success.

There is no website builder in the marketplace that gives you more detailed information about search engine optimization , building keyword focused content pages, and marketing. Before you even get started building your site and choosing a domain name SBI is taking you through a process using its famous Brainstorm It tool to figure out your sites concept, feasibility, and monetization potential.

Brainstorm It allows you to enter keywords (seed words) and comes up with your master keyword list. When you enter a seed you then check it laterally and vertically in Brainstorm It to come up with profitable keywords which form your site blueprint. These keywords have been checked for supply and demand and then rechecked for the number of times searched which leaves you with keyword profitability.

Once you trim down your master keyword list to 200 or more profitable keywords you move on to the site building process. Your master keyword list is now your site blueprint each keyword being a topic for a new page. As you build each page in SBI’s block building module and before you upload it the analyze It tool checks your page for keyword density. It then reports back to you where you need to make changes so it is optimized properly for the search engines. When your page passes the analyze it test your page is ready to be uploaded and go live on the internet. Using Brainstorm It properly thanks to its connection with wordtracker is a foolproof way of creating keyword focused content pages for promoting your opportunity.

SBI is not perfect though. One of the biggest complaints is newbies getting overwhelmed with too much information. I remember feeling that way myself. Personally I don’t see how too much information is a setback but SBI leaves no rock unturned. That is why following the action guide and understanding the tools

is critical, working at your own pace essential, and learning the theory behind it vital. There is one or more video tutorials at each day of the action guide,  which isn’t a bad thing. I prefer video tutorials over straight text anyway. It keeps me focused and tutorials are easier to comprehend.

I remember being skeptical about purchasing SBI and feeling that the cost was a little steep. I know better now since I’ve had the opportunity to see and use the tools. Comparing the cost of SBI  to the cost of a yearly subscription to wordtracker makes it a bargain. Wordtracker costs $329.00/yr. And SBI is only $299.00/yr. Plus it comes with a 30 day money back guarantee and also pro rates the yearly fee if you choose not to use SBI past the 30 day deadline.

In a nut shell Site Build It is an excellent choice for promoting your opportunity, getting an education, and learning about search engine optimization.

One last tid bit. SBI owners are like one big fraternity. They are loyal to Site Built It, sensitive about Site Built It, and since 35% of SBI sites rank in the top 1% of all websites glad that they met Site Build It.

Blinkweb Review

Blinkweb is a new service that allows anyone to build a web site through point and click technology.

BlinkWeb is similar to Google Pages. You can create a multi-page site, choose a layout and template from their gallery, and drag and drop different components onto the pages. BlinkWeb has more features targeting Internet Marketers, though.

BlinkWeb right now consists of a contact form, a guest book, Google Maps integration for showing where an address is, Google Adsense integration, and a custom HTML widget. You can also include paragraphs, a paragraph with an attached title, images, and a paragraph with an image embedded in it, along with doing a two column layout for part of the page. You can also easily add in video and Flickr integration.

The templates available are limited right now. You might find something for promoting your opportunity, or you might not. The widgets available are also limited. They’re fine for basic sites, but you’ll have to use the custom HTML widget for anything more complicated.

One of the attractive points about BlinkWeb is that it offers a Sales Letter as a page type. These pages have a different templates, all modeled after typical Internet Marketing type sales pages. So putting up a simple sales page for promoting your opportunity with BlinkWeb is very easy.

Another type of page is a blog page. This provides the standard blog sorts of widgets and a sidebar. Of course, you can specify the typical SEO information, such as meta keywords and description, and the page title.

BlinkWeb is definitely targeted toward Internet Marketers. They offer a five day lesson in how to earn using BlinkWeb, which basically walks you through an overview of developing an information product and using BlinkWeb to create a sales site. They also provide a Facebook widget for promoting your opportunity on Facebook easily.

Promoting your opportunity can be done for free using BlinkWeb. So what does BlinkWeb get from it? In Day 5 of the lessons, they suggest you obtain a domain name instead of using a subdomain of BlinkWeb.com. The way you can use a domain of your own that’s built into BlinkWeb is to purchase web hosting from them. You get the domain itself for free, and web hosting at $1 for the first month and $14.95 a month after that.

BlinkWeb does do what it says. Anyone can make a web site with it, although you might need to figure out what to put into the meta keywords, etc. And, you can do it for free, and get your web site up and running and perfected before you make a decision on whether you want to pay $14.95 a month basically to use your own domain name with the site.

Having your own website for promoting your opportunity makes it easier for you to create multiple streams of income. Your network marketing company may not be thrilled that you are promoting your opportunity this way but it sure beats pounding the pavement, making cold calls, and dealing with rejection.

For anyone wanting to do a bit of their own Search Engine
Optimisation, there is an abundance of free online SEO tools
available on the internet. Most of them provide some pretty
impressive statistics and information to help you optimise your
website, analyse search engine positions, research your
competitors, plus much more!

There are two ways these free online SEO tools can be used: (1)
For those who are new to the area of search engine optimisation,
these tools provide excellent insight on how a website is
performing and ranking. They can quickly highlight issues and
trends with their current website and provide a good insight as
to where optimisation work is necessary. (2) For the more
experienced search engine optimisers amongst us, these tools
will act as a complement to the more specialised SEO tools, like
WebPosition Gold or SpyderOpts. They can even be used to
supplement an SEO’s internal knowledge base and experience.

Here is a selection of some choice tools for both the novice and
the experienced search engine optimisers:

Keyword Research Tool
http://www.webmaster-toolkit.com/keyword-research-tool.shtml
This helps to research appropriate words and phrases to include
in your webpage’s body text to aid promotion. It’s simple and to
use and requires the user to enter the sort of word of phrase
you wish to be found under, the tool will then suggest some
additional words and phrases you can think about using. One of
the great things about this tool is that it gives you the option
to select from a range of top search engines, e.g. Google,
Yahoo, MSN, Teoma, etc.

Keyword Analyser Tool
http://www.webmaster-toolkit.com/keyword-analysis-tool.shtml
This tool reads the body of the page you specify and gives a
report on what words are used, and how many times they are used.
This is a valuable tool as most engines will rank your site
depending on your keyword density (which typically ranges
between 3% and 9%).

Search Engine Position Checker Tool
http://www.webmaster-toolkit.com/search-engine-position-checker.s
html This tool checks whether your website appears in the first
fifty results in major search engines for your chosen keyword or
phrase. If the URL is present, it will output what position it
occupies. As an additional feature, the tool also informs you if
any other URLs from your domain appear in the search results.

Link Popularity Tool
http://www.instantposition.com/link_popularity_check.cfm This
tool measures the total number of links or “votes” that a search
engine has found for your website. This is a pretty cool tool
because as well as tabulated data it also produces a nice graph
of the resulting data. One final key element of this tool is its
ability to compare your website to your competitors to help you
with your overall marketing strategy.

Meta Tag Generator
http://www.webmaster-toolkit.com/meta-tag-generator.shtml This
automatically generates a Meta Keyword tag by reading the page
you specify, removing common words from it, and picking the most
used words on the page. Extra weight is given to words in a
heading tag

Search Term Suggestion Tool
http://inventory.overture.com/d/searchinventory/suggestion/
Displays how many times a certain keyword was searched for at
Overture.com. Shows all related searches for the entered
keyword. A good measure to use in determining frequency of
search among related keyword phrases

Search Engine Optimisation Tool
http://www.instantposition.com/seo_doctor.cfm. A very impressive
tool that tests the performance of a web site, by analysing a
page on the important elements of web page creation, such as its
title and content. It then scores the page against given
criteria for the top search engines, followed by some valuable
SEO advice to improve overall ranking. The report produced is
well laid out and easy to follow for anyone doing their own
optimisation. A freebie tool that works better than many costly
SEO tools I know!

The area of online SEO tools is an exciting area of growth as
SEO developers come up with more and more tools to represent
website positions on the internet. No doubt we will be
revisiting this area again….
