To access the following you will need to click on each button that asks if you would like to install the program. Install what you would like to use at anytime and check for upgrades as well here are some helpful freebies:
We could all use a bit of help here, not many are touch typists these days, and most of the time we are in such a hurry that we miss type words all the time, then there are those abbreviations that we have come to accept as normal. np, fyi, btw to name a few, it's ok with friends but it's really not very professional and won't win you any deals.
Eliminate pop-up and pop-under ads... how annoying are they.
- World Time
Figure out what time it is anywhere in the world. Once you have installed this application, your computer automatically reads where you are located and gives you time in relation to its base. You can see when the sun rises and sets, daylight hours, sunlight angle, time zones plus the longitude and latitude. You can zoom in to country specific regions, this is fun... who can I wake up?
Remember this is a trial version so you will need to purchase it if you like. I did and it was worth it, the full version includes cloud weather maps that are updated every 3 hours, cool... planning a holiday? Family or friends overseas? And much more...
- Page Content Extractor
Now make sure you don't steal Intellectual Property here, but if you want to get the contents of a web page but don't want the graphics because they tend to mess with the printers mind (memory chip) and we all want to save the trees, this is a really good option. Plus it makes easier reading.
Find out who owns the site... ah ha, I know what you are thinking.
- SEO Server
Gives a preview of the site and its links to other sites, useful in searches, before loading a page (some take forever), preview and eliminate sites that have no relevance.
- Trellian WebPage
Aa Free HTML editor, just what I needed, now I can build my own site and publish it on the net, but I'm still going to need a web host and guess what, they do that too. Register a domain name, they have that as well. Check out the services folder.
- Trellian Button Factory
the trial version will allow you to create buttons and web graphics without any prior experience or artist ability... I like that, I struggle to draw a stick figure....but you can only save one at a time, anymore and you will have to buy the program... it's an inexpensive way to do your multimedia for web or presentation.
- Traffic Stats
from Alexa, now this one I love, see how you rate against other sites. Try this with www.femail.com.au or www.girl.com.au and see how you stack up. Anyone know who number 1 is?
- Link Popularity
many engines use link popularity to rank your website listing (of course you need to submit it first... see SubmitWolf, the more links you have the higher you will rank, you can use this feature to check how your site is doing and compare with your competitors.
- Code Pad
this one is for the webmasters out there. Typically you would 'view source' to find out all the ins and outs of a site. For most of us, it's just a load of mumbo jumbo but to the trained eye (webmasters or html guru's) it's the cosmetics & beautician behind the perfect makeup. It's what makes the site look so cool, keeps the images and text in place, we could all use a bit of that. So how can it help you and how is it different to the MS one? It's color coded... cool, not only prettier, but much easier to read than black & white. You can actually find what you are looking for (like that broken image - or bold a heading that is a bit dull) make changes easily or copy information you need, saves heaps of time.
this is for you webmasters out there. Checks all the servers you go through and how fast before you end up at a website. If a website is down this is useful to check which links are down... handy.
- Server Header Checker
checks the status of webpage/website. What?... ok this is another one for the webmasters and system admin people out there. Accidents happen and this will help you prevent it. The Server Header Checker will check if your page is configured correctly, check if a page has a redirect (this can stop engines from indexing your page). Plus whether or not there are index or follow up tags that engines aren't too fond of, they can be useful to you if you don't want particular pages crawled, but if you are wondering why your pages is not being spidered, this could be the reason.
- SEO Knowledgebase
a webmaster MUST have and I mean this with all sincerity. With out this knowledge your website is never going to get top ranking or traffic that you can boast about. And best of all this advice is free. If you are serious about having a presence or trading online and don't read this then "g.. help you, cause you will need it". Arm yourself with all the tricks of the trade, but if you've got the money I'd recommend purchasing BOT, SubmitWolf and investing in some Priority Submissions all available through the one software.... Webmasters dream.
- ROI Calculators
advertiser/marketer's tool. There are three different calculators to choose from here, depending on the information you have and what you want to know. The first; calculates roughly what you will earn through an advertising campaign. By calculating the cost per visitor you can work out from your sales if this campaign is worthwhile or not for you. The second CPM (cost per thousand) to CPC (cost per click) allows you to work out how much you can afford to spend per visitor on advertising based on your average conversion of traffic. It's really quite simple you enter in the traffic conversion rate as a %, type in your average profit per product and the % of spending you can allocate to a marketing campaign. The calculator will give you the PPC maximum amount you can afford to pay.
Option 3 is for if you already know what you are paying for an advertising campaign per click and you want to calculate what profit you should make.
All this from the one Toolbar... what can I say... install it now, you will love it.
