Here are some of my favorite places to visit ( when i am working ).
http://websitegrader.com/ for checking your site at a very high level.
http://www.tamingthebeast.net/ for entertaining & informative articles about marketing
http://www.seomoz.org/ for educational articles about SEO and since I am a member I use their crawl services and other pro features.
http://searchenginewatch.com/ for realizing how little we know about everything
http://www.mikemoran.com/biznology/ written by one of the most knowledgeable person on the planet. This man (Mike Moran) knows his stuff through and through. A very deep analysis of search can be found by reading the latest edition of what I consider to be a classic in the field - "Search Engine Marketing, Inc.
http://www.mozilla.org/ for downloading the latest edition of Firefox. And don't forget to check out the plugins! One of my favorites is called IOPUS iMacros which is a wonderful tool that saves hundreds of keystrokes every day.
The Google Adword Keyword Tool You can use this free tool to examine phrases and terms in any industry and find out how many people are using that term for their search.
In order to make good business decisions from your Google Analytics data you need to have actionable data, then take action! One way to do this is to get the data into excel, and there are some things you can do with it in excel that you cannot do by reviewing the report in the GA dashboard. So hop on over to http://excellentanalytics.com/ and get this excel plugin to help you do just that.
A hosting site i use is www.greatdanehosting.com. In the 10+ years I have been hosting there I have never experienced an outage, never had an ip block, and they are available 24 hours for tech support. Their service is inpeccable.
Lately i noticed i was spending too much time wrangling my email from spammers. So i found this handy anti-spam tool.
I hope you find it as useful as i do.
Ever get tired of trying to remember passwords. I know i do. A friend of mine suggested I look at www.lastpass.com which is a highly encrypted site for storing your passwords. I saves and remembers your passwords and allows autofill for all your domains and sites you visit that require it. The vault is downloadable, so you can store all of them in one place. There is a premium version i have not tried.
