I don’t know how this is done, but somehow a symbol of an airplane hitting the Twin Towers has made it’s way onto Google Hot Trends today (as you can see at the 20th position if you click the image). It’s been there since this morning.
Are you fresh out of article ideas for your website? If so, Wordtracker has just provided the boost you need to get some more great content cranked out. They’ve just released a free tool on their website called Keyword Questions, which allows you to enter any keyword or short phrase into a search box and they’ll return with a list of questions that people have searched for using that specific keyword. How cool is that?
You can come up with all sorts of new articles with this, and obviously if people are searching for it, it’s something that you want them to find on your website. Of course, some of the terms can be extremely competitive, but hey, it’s still good content and keeps your site fresh. Dig deeper to make sure it isn’t too competitive if you’d like. Check out a screenshot below.
With all of the talk about Internet Explorer 8′s controversial “porn mode” I thought I’d help all you internet junkies out there take it a step further. The Invisible mode in IE8 has been dubbed “porn mode” and I don’t really see why. It hides all your cookies and browser history and stuff, but that isn’t a big deal. Any internet user can figure out how to get rid of this stuff.
If you’ve ever wanted to do a little competitive analysis, you’ve probably had the misfortune of having to view the page source of many pages on a particular website. Searching meta tags isn’t the best way to find the right terms to target for your own website, but it’s a good indicator of what other people are targeting and it’s a perfect start for your keyword research.
You’ve probably done this before, and realized how tedious and boring checking pages of one site can be, so after searching the web for something more automated and not finding anything, a coworker mentioned a program called GSiteCrawler. It’s works fairly well actually.
Have you been to Google today? If you do a search, you might notice that once you begin typing, Google automatically starts providing real-time suggestions, as well as how many results each of those keywords have. This option, Google Suggest, was previously available as a Google Labs opt-in but it’s now gonna be default for all of your Google searches. According to the Official Google Blog, everyone might not have this functionality yet, but it should be available within the week. It shows up for me off and on right now.
