Although I prefer to use the overture keyword tool to perform keyword discovery and research, it can be useful to have other resources to find the value of different keywords. Listed below are a few other sites that will help you get a general idea of keyword rankings.

http://www.goodkeywords.com/
http://www.digitalpoint.com/tools/keywords/
http://www.wordtracker.com/free-trial.html
http://www.adwordanalyzer.com/
http://www.iwebtool.com/keyword_lookup/
http://www.wordtracker.com
http://www.keywordelite.com
http://www.rankalert.net/keyword-popularity.php

Most of these other keyword tools dont have as large a sample to draw their data, but they can provide you with some interesting data that allows you to compare them to overture rankings and give you a more well-rounded view on your selected keywords.

As an internet marketer and SEO professional, I use a web browser very often. And I have found that firefox tends to be more useful to get my work done more quickly than any other browser i have used. I’ve put together a short list of good plugins for firefox that can make common SEO tasks less cumbersome. Most of these plugins are useful to designers and web develpoers also. But mainly they focus on common SEO tasks.

If you have any questions about these SEO plugins for firefox, please dont hesitate to contact us.

Well, it appears there is yet another seo contest going on. The “special” keywords this time are “Ambatchdotcom Seocontest”. I have never heard of this website before and it appears noone i know has heard of them either. The rules of the contest are provided here: World SEO Championship

I am guessing that many in the SEO community are tired of these contests and there wont be a large number of participants. That should make the contest a bit easier. However, i am a bit tired of the seo contest also, and busy with other projects so I wont be able to devote much time to this.

WordPress is pretty well setup for SEO right out of the box. That being said, there are a few things you can do to make it more friendly to the search engines. I found this quick tip that makes SEO for your wordpress blog even better.

The instructions below will enable your wordpress blog title and meta description to become relevant to the on-page content. Instead of having the same title for each page of your blog, the title for each page will use the title of the post. And, the description will be a handful of words taken from the content of your post.

SEO Scoop
Oilman
Stuntdubl SEM
Matt Cutts Blog
RealSEO.com
fantomNews
SEOmoz.org
Link Building Blog
Jim Boykin Blog

searchdope.com

Although i havent linked to each of these forums and blogs, a quick search in Google should land you in the right place. I hope these sites help you to learn as much as they have helped me.

While the title of this post may seem strange to those of you that know what SEO stand for, it has come to my attentiont that this keyphrase is searched for very frequently on the web. Which of course means that good rankings for this term may provide some good traffic. Since this phrase is a little strange and redundant to people who know what SEO stands for, there isnt much competition for this keyword either. So, I thought I might try to capture some of this traffic with this post i my blog.

Looks like google is updating PR again. Most of my sites are experiencing an increase in PR across most google datacenters. This site, which is only a few months old, has jumped from a PR0 to a PR5. Not bad for a new website. Rankings in google have not a had a similar jump but that just goes to show you that PR doesnt have as much to do with rankings as people would like to beleive.

While it is important to use keywords within the content of a webpage, it also important to use keywords within the URL of a page. The simplest way to achieve keyword use in the URL is to create directories and filenames that contain keywords. Keyword use in directory names and file names is an indicator to the search engines that the content within that directory or file is relevant to the keyword.
