Another holiday post highlighting the various logos that the search engines have updated in accordance with the holiday of love. Valentines Day is the day to show your love to your significant other, but how many search engines have decided to show their love to their users? Lets check it out.

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.
