Tuesday Search Tidbits

Wordtracker now offers a free keyword research tool – hat tip to SEOBook. Remember “hat tips” all you selfish, link hoarding bloggers out there? (no, I do NOT mean Aaron)

Yahoo Site Explorer adds new features

Andy and Jeremy, back and forth, back and forth about MBL. This is a good example of a blog post that is not well thought out before posting (on the part of Jeremy Zawodny). Using the word “spamming” and Andy Beal’s name in the blog post title was flat out lame, whether there was an objection to Andy’s contest or not.

Serph’s up at ACS – new social media search tool – I hope to do a review of this later in the week

Yahoo Updates Site Explorer

Yahoo has updated their Site Explorer tool to offer some very Google Sitemap-like tools including the ability to track more than one site, display the last crawl date, easier feed submission and an update notification service. These services require a Yahoo account to login.

Yahoo Webzari and Weather Report

Lee Odden on Jul 31st, 2006     Marketing Industry News, Online Marketing, Yahoo

Some interesting info from Yahoo recently including an updated “Weather Report” announcing that a new and improved (Slurp) is in action. So now Yahoo has a new look and feel and a new and improved spider. I don’t use Yahoo much more than I used to, maybe a little more. Old habits are hard to break. I was checking my Yahoo account and see that I’m coming up on my 10 year anniversary. Long live Yahoo.
Yahoo Search Blog posted about a modification of the very useful Yahoo Site Explorer tool that Yahoo Korea put out called Webzari, a visual representation of your link neighborhood. It’s only in Korean now, but hopefully Yahoo will publish versions in other languages or at least English.¬† Here’s the Online Marketing Blog link universe. (via Barry)
You know what they say about a picture being worth a thousand words, right? Personally, I like graphic representations like Webzari. Some other cool visual search tools you might like include: The Google related tool over at Touchgraph, that slick new tool at Digg labs called Swarm or trusty visual search engine Kartoo.

Yahoo Site Explorer Firefox Extension

Thomas here and I just wanted to let you all know that I’ve released a Firefox extension called yExplore to quickly access the Yahoo Site Explorer.

Back in September Yahoo released their site explorer and it’s quite a handy little tool. However, I wanted quicker access to the tool so I created the yExplore Firefox extension. It simply allows you to right click on any web page, select yExplore and it’ll open Yahoo Site Explorer in a background tab with the URL already submitted.

A few more details are available at my yExplore Extension page or you can get yExplore from the Mozilla site.
