    CAUTION: Please investigate any companies,

    services, consultants or software products

    thoroughly and use at your own risk.

    To check your Web site visibility/ keyword ranking:

? Visit www.marketleap.com to determine how well your site is indexed by the major search

    engines. Run the “Search Engine Saturation” report. You can also type in URLs for several of

    your competitors to see how you compare to them. Use the “Link Popularity” report to see how

    many links you have to your site. Use the “Keyword Verification” report to see how well a specific

    keyword is doing.

    ? To check existing links on Google: Go to Google.com and type in:

    allinurl:www.yourURL.com to see what results Google has on record for your web site URL.

    ? Keyword density and prominence analyzer: http://www.ranks.nl/tools/spider.html

    ? Free Link Popularity Software Back Link Analyzer:

    Keyword Research

    ? Google (www.google.com) offers a keyword research tool (Try

    https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal ) ? You can subscribe to the WordTracker research site for a small fee (which searches MANY major

    search engines and compiles results). I believe they also offer a free trial period:

    www.wordtracker.com

    ? Keyword statistics from over 180 search engines world wide: http://www.keyworddiscovery.com/

    (I believe they may also offer a free trial)

    ? SEO Research Labs, many resources and sources for Keyword Research Services:

    http://www.seoresearchlabs.com/

    ? Keyword Research Resource: http://www.keywordworkshop.com/ ? Yahoo now seems to require that you create a campaign before they allow access to their keyword

    research tool. (Since Overture was purchased by Yahoo, the new owners have gotten much less

    generous with their keyword research data.)

    ? Since we don't have a free tool from Yahoo that is reliable at the moment, Aaron Wall informs us

    that Wordtracker released a new free keyword tool at http://freekeywords.wordtracker.com/. The

    tool reports keyword suggestions, of up to a 100 related keywords, with search volume data.
