More Free Tools for Online Marketing

Since my last post on reverse marketing, I promised a master list of tools, and this is the beginning. I call my list I keep on hand the "Internet Marketing Bible". The packet of tools I have is about 20 pages long, so I will just touch on the best of the tools I have.

By far, the best overall free tool is Web CEO. It is a complete software package that tracks your websites and keeps statistics that you want. It can track your organic rankings over time for your keywords, keeps track of your linking strategies, can submit to search engines, tracks competitors, and more. I just use the keyword ranking and link tracking, since all the other services (PPC management and analytics) I use through Google and other sources. Great free tool!

Free Directory Submissions: www.freewebsubmission.com Lists the top 50 directories you can submit your website to.

Press Releases: www.prleap.com, www.24-7pressrelease.com These two sites provide a decent free press release service. Great for getting articles and PR and links. I would recommend paying the $30 or so however. Usually this small amount will get you to the top of the first page of releases on your release date.

RSS Feed creators: I am sure everyone by now knows what RSS is. A way to feed you site's content into other places on the net. Whether you use Blogger, other blogging service, or have a website, these two tools are very helpful in getting an RSS feed set up and running:
Feedburner: Hosts and creates an RSS feed address for any type of feed. Just type in your url and get ready to go.
Cut'n'Paste RSS Feed: After creating a feed in feedburner, use your new feed url in here and it will create the HTML so you can have your feed put into another website. Very easy to customize.

XML Sitemaps: www.xml-sitemaps.com is a great and easy tool to create your sitemap to insert into your website for Google and other search engines to see.

Keyword Density Tool: This tool from SEO Chat quickly analysis your keyword density for any given page. Optimal keyword density? Well, people say anywhere from 2.5% - 5%. I usually hover around 3.5%

Split Testing: AdComparator allows you to a simple multi-variate test on your own ads or creative. It allows you to enter in the different thing you want to test, and after entering in the information from the test it gives you your analysis. Great tool.

Live PR Tracker: Track your Live Google PageRank and see which Data Centers are logging what PR for your site. Interesting to see the difference sometimes.

Public Relations Advice and Tools: 101publicrelations.com/blog has some good discussion on public relations and the sidebar has some useful tools to check out.

Firefox SEM Extension: By far the most amazing and useful extension. It automatically give you the vital rankings (PR, Alexa, Backlinks, Directories, Indexed Pages) for every website right on a Google search results page. You don't even have to go to the individual websites. Just download the extension and every time you search on Google, it runs the results in a box just below every website. Brilliant!

Well, that's a good start. Next time I will post a list of Blog/RSS directories you cant submit your blog to for inclusion. Good luck!

Hi Guys,

Buy new domains with existing Google page rank and valuable inbound links - guaranteed!

Many internet marketers use link exchange programs.

They spend boatloads of money trying to increase their websites' link popularity.

It's much easier to buy valuable dropping domains which already have great link popularity.

For example, did you notice that last year Microsoft forgot to renew their domain http://outlookexpress.com ?

Since it had expired, anybody could grab it.

Warning: It's not uncommon to miss renewal notices.

If you have more than a few domains, this probably has already happened to you.

If it hasn't, it probably will.

Credit cards expire. Sometimes the autorenew is unintentionally set to "off".

This is an easy way to lose a valuable old domain.

If this happens to you, you can bet it happens to everybody!

And someone else's loss can become your gain with www.RegisterCompass.com .

When a domain unintentionally expires that's your chance!

Quickly and easily comb through a pool of more than 30,000 expiring domains daily.

RegisterCompass offers you the ability to search for domains with:

- Backlinks listed in Google
- Backlinks listed in Yahoo
- Backlinks listed in MSN
- Backlinks listed in Alexa
- DMOZ listings
- Yahoo Directory listings
- The number of pages indexed in Google
- The number of pages indexed in Yahoo
- The number of pages indexed in MSN
- Alexa ranking
- Google page rank
- Character length filter
- Presorted alphabetization
- Domain age
- Wayback machine listing

and much more ....

It's time to get started now!

Get a jump on your competition by grabbing valuable, high-page-rank sites before they do.

To your increased profits,

You have a full month (4 weeks) to try out the site.

If you don’t find lots of great domains, you can get your entire subscription back.

Mind you, I’M taking the risk here because you could find all the great domains you want,

and still get your money back on the end of the month.

Hi,

When a website owner wants to bring more viewers to his or her website, then that website owner often turns to a website promotion company. Promotion of a website is much the same as the marketing of a website. Therefore, the website owner could make use of the many online marketing companies. Still, with so many different companies the website owner needs to find a way to sort through all of those companies. First the website owner needs to understand that he or she might find help beyond the listed web promotion company. The needed help might also be found at an online marketing research company or an online marketing services company.
