Nifty Free Site Tools (I would pay for these!!)

I came across a couple of really valuable tools this last weekend.
If you are a Firefox user, you may notice that now I have a pretty little icon in the address bar (it appears in Bloglines even in IE). I created the icon in Photoshop, then went to HTML-Kit, uploaded the image, and it automatically generated a correctly formatted icon - and even offered an animated alternative! Fun!

Even better (and I’m sure won’t be free forever!) is HitTail.

First of all, for a quick overview of the Longtail concept, watch HitTail’s quick demo.

Next, add a tiny piece of code to your site template or blog template. Then watch and wait as HitTail tracks the search engine traffic that comes your way, analyzes the keywords, and actually makes recommendations for topics to enable you to own the traffic from highly targeted search phrases.

Lastly, I heard about HitTail from the gals over at BuildABetterBlog who wrote a nice shout out for eMoms yesterday. I tried to leave a comment of thanks, but kept getting distracted by their great posts and resources. I had to come back numerous times to finally express my gratitude!

    Thanks for the mention, Wendy. Our plan is to keep HitTail free for all sites whose traffic is below a yet-undetermined, but very high level.

    Wow, Mike - that is indeed impressive - especially for the value your tool offers. But I guess I can hope to have to pay someday thanks to all of the traffic I will get if I use HitTail to its full potential! ;)
