Tabbed browsing is nothing new but it can sometimes be hard to differentiate between all the tabs you have open as they are all the same color and look the same from a distance. Well, thanks to Colorful Tabs, all of you tabs will now have their own unique color. A very cool add on indeed.

3. Fast Dial

Fast Dial is a bookmark add on which acts as a ‘speed dial’ on Firefox.

Myspace takes the crown for the ugliest social networking website out there. Although it may be the biggest, that doesn’t make it the best and it’s success is down to the fact it was one of the first social networking sites out there. Nowadays it’s not cool, hugely over rated and used by social networking users as a no.2 or no.3 profile behind their facebook or bebo profiles.

Top 4 Keyword Research Tools

September 7, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

There are a variety of keyword tools available on the market, but we bring to you the best of the best. These tools are all you need to make sure your SEO efforts bring fruit.

1) DigitalPoint Keyword Suggestion Tool

The DigitalPoint Keyword Suggestion Tool combines data from Overture and WordTracker. This is highly beneficial to the user as it’s always better to get two streams of data in order to obtain an accurate picture by means of comparing the data. You can ascertain the profitability of a keyword if both the numbers arepretty close and after doing some basic keyword research that particular keyword is found to have high “niche keyword power”. I’d say the DigitalPoint Keyword Suggestion Tool is a decent enough tool which maybe pretty helpful at times.

2) NicheBot

NicheBot is perhaps the most comprehensive keyword tool but it comes at a price. You can search WordTracker, Google and Overture at the same time. It also has some innovative features like Thesaurus which presents you the closest 10 synonyms with relatively high searches.

3) Keyword Discovery

Keyword Discovery is constantly trying to compete with the great WordTracker but falls pitifully short. For one, the captcha which keeps popping up is highly irruating. The interface is a complete muddle and it’s very difficult to navigate around their site. One advantage they ahve voer WordTracker is that you can search as far as 12 months back as opposed to searching for a keyword’s history only upto 2 months back in WordTracker.

4) WordTracker

WordTracker is often synonymous with keyword research and experts highly recommend it as the the keyword tool whcih gives the most accurate results. It is the ONLY keyword tool which actually allows you to mine for long-tail keywords.
