The very first tweet posted on Twitter was March 21, 2006 and within this short period of 6 years, well over 500 million accounts where created.

It changed the Social Media landscape allowing many fans to talk with their favorite stars and Internet Marketers to grow the number of people who hear about them and their services or products. Many large companies are also using the system to closely keep in touch with their customers, giving them a great marketing advantage.

Many SEO tools, one click away.Today I heard of a useful tool, especially if you are like me and like to track down your SEO progress with your Snap! Websites.

It is a very interesting and simple tool that sends you to all sorts of websites that give you detailed SEO information such as page rank, links to the page, whether you exist on DMOZ, etc.

I already gave you some of those URLs and tricks. Yet this tool is cool since it makes those links available in an automated way for all the websites that you visit making it very easy and quick to go check out your SEO information.

Considering doing banner advertising for your Snap! Website?

Whenever someone thinks of creating a banner ad for their Snap! Website, they think they need to hire a graphics person to do all the work. Truly, if your banner looks 100% like an ad, it is likely to not be clicked very much (unless you have something that's anyway really hot and always generates clicks...) On the other hand, a banner that looks like text being part of the website where it is shown has a greater chance of success. So? Why not create it yourself?

OpenOffice.org

I use many totally free tools to create and manipulate my graphics. All are available under Linux, Mac OS/X and MS-Windows. The first one is OpenOffice which is now 10 years old. OpenOffice is not only free, it also creates files that are easy to share, contrary to Microsoft Office which has been creating proprietary file formats. By the way, it is owned by Oracle so it ought to be good quality!

OpenOffice is a suite of tools. There is even one to write Math Formulae... But I won't talk about that one today. At this time, what we want is the Drawing feature. This one lets you place graphics on your screen and move them around until they are arranged exactly the way you like it. This makes it one of the best tool to create mostly text based banners.
