    Well done. I think many people are aware of a lot of those but having them compiled in a "tools" list is helpful.

    Tools:

    This tool crawls your page and tells you about a bunch of on-the-page factors that you should fix to get better rankings (i.e. filesizes of images, loading time, etc). I use it to benchmark alot of my sites.

    Thanks for the great responses from all. Add rating to this thread if you like it so it stays at the top and others can see it later on.

    Phoenixcarpet: Very nice resource. I just finished having my programmer mySQL my list at www.seocompany.ca/tool/seo-tools.html. Now adding tools is so so easy.

    I am also spliting each category out into a seperate page (yes I am leaving them all on one page also). That means the tool awards section (tool of the month, best tool of the year, most improved tool) will be giving a link to each winner on 20 pages now.

    I have not worked on this page for about 6 months while I was building up other lists and working on my directory submissions business. But now with it all automated you should expect to see lots more tools being reviewed and added up.

    I added the 100th tool today.

    bobmutch, your assignment, should you choose to accept it.

    This is mission critical and includes two parts:

    1. You are to try to learn to use the "quote" feature in bbcode

    2. You are to learn how to construct a post without slapping in at least one self-promoting link to your website somewhere in that post

    This message will self-destruct in 10 seconds.

    Nice list, but half of them I don't see the SEO value. Like this one.

    An objective list also wouldn't have aff ID's in it IMO.

    Bitching aside, thanks for sharing.

    I perfer to do my quotes this way.

    "You are to learn how to construct a post without slapping in at least one self-promoting link to your website somewhere in that post"
    I notice you have 4 self promotional links in your post and keyword rich anchor text at that. Pull your self promotion and I will stop dropping self promotion links to as they don't matter to me. Other wise stop complaining about things you are doing yourself.

    You don't notice any such thing because it doesn't exist, or at least very rarely. I have sig links which are within the guidelines for this forum. So do you. I have no complaint about that. I do have an issue with you and a few others here who cannot seem to post anything without a gratuitous link to one of their own sites in the body of the post.

    As I've said before, my complaint about your posts is that most of the time they're not posts... they're advertisements... and not very subtle ones at that.
