I am just amazed that this piece of software is free. WebCEO combines niche/keyword research with website promotion, analysis, and maintenance, offering more in its free version than you get in many paid SEO packages. Not only that, but you get free Search Engine Optimization training when you register your copy.
The site monitor (is your site up and running?) and advanced ranking checker are just two of the powerful features you’ll find when you download this Windows software. Frankly, there’s just not enough space here to tell you all about it, so read about it on their site.

Not to be outdone, Doug Hudiburg has released his top ideas of 2008, in a baker’s dozen of marketing tips he’s published in Daily Marketing Ace. Each tip is 200 characters or less, so it won’t take you long to read this report, but the value will stay with you forever.
There’s no charge, not even an opt-in form, but I recommend you keep up with his 2009 tips by signing up to DMA when you download this PDF.

My subscriptions to IM newsletters come and go, but I’ve been a subscriber of Marlon Sanders for years. His insightful articles have given me a kick in the rear on more than one occasion, and several of them have found a place on my website.
Marlon has just wrapped up 20 of his top articles in The Best of Marlon Sanders—125 pages of pure content showing you how to stop trading time for dollars and start trading products for dollars. You can get your copy by signing up for his weekly newsletter, something I’d recommend even if he wasn’t giving away his best ideas.

Say that five times fast! Everyone with a website has a need for forms, yet building them to both work and look nice is often more difficult than batting a thousand. (Why did I choose that comparison? Heck if I know.)
I went looking for a form builder that one of my clients could use and JotForm showed up at the intersection of Cool and Free. For users with modest forms submission requirements, this service is a great way to put contact, survey, and other forms on a web page. (You can even create a nice-looking form, then modify it to use with your autoresponder.)

You’ve probably noticed that the last several issues of IMWR have had a common thread running through them: Twitter. That’s not been by design, but as social media sites like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube grow in popularity, tools to make better use of them begin to proliferate.
If you’re not regularly using social media — well, why not? It’s not just for “kids” and it doesn’t have to be a time waster. Perry Belcher and Ryan Deiss recently sat down to talk about Winning at Social Media and why and how you should be involved.

The name really doesn’t do this service justice, because you can also create headers, footers, peel-away ads, and more. Use the provided templates, or upload or create your own. Even add clip art from their library or your own.
The service stores your creations for later use and you can use their servers to host your images, too. Finally, your free membership is rounded out by a handful of bonuses you’ll love!

Seriously. A simple name that tells you exactly what the newsletter is about: Internet Marketing Newsletter. Not a simple newsletter, though: last week’s premier issue was 34 full-color pages with articles by eight top marketers.
A few big name marketers are now charging $30 a month and up for print newsletters of this caliber, but Armand Morin is delivering this high-quality, no-fluff newsletter at no charge.

If you’re using Twitter to follow lots of people, there’s no way you want to visit each of their status pages to get the latest updates. What you need is a desktop application that automatically grabs the updates and displays them for you.
At the moment, I’m using TweetDeck, a cross-platform application that not only shows the updates, but also allows you to group them in multiple ways. Search through and filter the updates, then respond right in the main screen

Don’t you hate it when you’ve worked for hours on an article or sales page and you’re surfing the net when…WHAM! There’s your hard work on someone else’s site! You may have even paid for the work and some joker has just up and stolen it.
I can’t help you put the beat down on the thief, but I can show you how to find out sooner when this happens. Using Copyscape, you can search for website plagiarism and duplicate content that matches your web page.
