Here Arik has established what he describes as a "keyword search community" - a kind of search engine where each registrant 'owns' up to five key words or phrases forever, and for free. The first one to claim a keyword gets it. The search engine only returns a single company's link. "One question - one EXACT response." You even get paid for clicks on your keywords! Obviously, your keywords must be relevant, and have to be approved by a human editor. This is the secret to providing quality results, crucial if the service is to be popular. Says Arik, "Basically, it's a no-lose proposition. If we successfully brand the site and it becomes popular, the early movers are in line for the links and visits. If it fails, well, ok, it cost 15 minutes of their time to think of and register the keywords - not a tragedy in the great scheme of things." I've joined and registered my keywords. I suggest you rush over to do the same. After you've submitted your keywords at ExactResponse, be sure to follow the link to Wesley Warren's iApeal at http://www.iApeal.com.au . Wesley's service works on a similar 'less is more' principle, but enables you to register an unlimited number of keywords as your own, free of charge (again, subject to relevancy approval from a human editor). In addition, a search at iApeal results in the user being directly connected to the site that owns the keyword. As Wesley says "My Link Engine works on a simple principle. People know what they want most of the time. So I make life easy for them by giving them what they want in ONE CLICK. No searches, no categories, no navigation layers, just ask and click. It's a bit like a search engine without the tedious searching and sorting through results. I take people straight to what they want by sending a URL redirection to their browser based on their search term." If you're not having much luck promoting your site in regular seach engines, this is an opportunity you shouldn't pass up. Both sites already have steady traffic, which they are working to increase over the coming months. I grabbed a bunch of great keywords at both. I suggest you do the same. While you still can! BB Many online marketers lost one of there favorite tools this week: GoTo have removed the Search Term Suggestion Tool from their public site. Almost indispensable in keyword research, the tool tells you how many times your input keywords and their variations have been searched for during the previous month. Many sites - including NowSell.com - linked to, or used results from it for the benefit of their own visitors. Say GoTo, "Because the Search Term Suggestion Tool was so heavily used, we decided to perform some systems maintenance, and temporarily removed it from our site." The Search Term Suggestion Tool has been moved into the secure area of the GoTo site. Here, advertisers with GoTo can access it after logging in. You'll find it in the Add Listings section of the DirecTraffic Center. GoTo say they don't yet know if and when the Search Term Suggestion Tool will be placed back on their public site. Personally, I doubt it ever will be. Initially, the tool may have helped to raise GoTo's profile. However, with its current popularity amongst many that don't use any of GoTo's other (revenue generating) services, GoTo have probably decided the cost on system resources not worthwhile. BB As you may have noticed from the table of contents, the news section TIDBITS is back. The majority of readers say they want the news items (and who am I to argue?). Here's the results of the vote: YES! >>>> 70% I would like news items in every issue. NO! >>>> 28% I would not like news items in every issue. ERR? >>>> 2% I'm not sure... whatever ...? A couple of comments: As long as the content isn't everywhere on the news services, and is interesting as well as informative --such as in this issue--it is a good addition to the ezine. Best regards, Wayne Soszka You have some very interesting sources not being repeated elsewhere. Please have this section as a regular feature.
