In this month’s First Friday Favorites, I’ve compiled a list of 7 useful tools and resources to improve your website or blog and assist you with your Internet marketing efforts.

Here are my favorite picks for September 2009…

  1. 14 Dofollow Backlink Resources – One of the best ways to get backlinks to boost up your search engine rankings is to submit your site to pages that are indexed and allow dofollow links, preferably with custom anchor text. Also check out last month’s favorites for more dofollow sites.
  2. 137 Small Business Twitter Tips (PDF download) – Here’s a great collection of small business Twitter tips from actual Twitter users. They have some really great tips! It’s in PDF format so you can download and save it to your desktop for future reference.
  3. 10 Awesome Ways to Integrate Twitter With Your Website – I recently posted this resource on Twitter and what I got back was a lot of good feedback and retweets, so I feel it is worthy of posting it again here in case you missed it. For more great tips like these, be sure to follow me on Twitter.
  4. 10 Killer WordPress Hacks – If you own a WordPress blog, you’ve probably spent a considerable amount of time trying to customize your blog to look and function a particular way. With these WordPress hacks, you can now get it dones without the use of plugins. The advantage of using hacks over plugins is that hacks uses less bandwidth and loading time on your blog, which in turn gives your visitors a better experience.
  5. The 30 Free SEO Tools You Must Know – This list of free SEO tools will consist a mixture of web based tools, standalone software, and Firefox extensions. Some of my favorite tools in this list are Link Diagnosis and SeoQuake.
  6. One-Click English Dictionary and Thesaurus for Windows – WordWeb is a comprehensive one-click English thesaurus and dictionary for Windows. It can be used to look up words from almost any program, showing definitions, synonyms and related words. I love this free software! I find myself using this almost everyday to help me expand my vocabulary.
  7. 73 Ways to Become a Better Writer – I’m sure everybody wants to become a better writer. The more your write, the better you become as a writer. If you want more writing tips, check out my free report on “How to Write Like a Maniac.” You can download it here.

That’s it for this month’s favorite Internet marketing tools and resources. If you find it useful, make sure to bookmark it. Stay tune for next month’s favorites!

Thanks for this, Tom. I particularly like the DoFollow resources as I find it tough to find good resouces on these types of links.

Let´s go!

Hi Tom
Love the tips, love the header but I find it almost impossible to read your great content because the colour of the text blends into the background.. It would be great if the text could be white or perhaps the background a little lighter and less distracting.

Ok please ignore that last remark. Seems there was a problem loading the site on my pc…I couldnt see the white background, but it is now perfectly clear. Thanks again for the great tips!..sorry for the confusion.
Best Julia.

I like your link on SEO tools. Perfect for the novice SEO’er as people can spend lots of time doing things that won’t help them but with that link I think a lot of people will be educated 🙂

As an example boxweddingdress dot com will be the proper one. Now you’ll be able to make big savings. And keep in mind it isn’t that it’s low cost dresses on give, but usually the savings are past on to you personally.

This was an exciting issue you just read, please post greater number of these items on the net so i could look over

My favorite Freddy movie actually has to be the remake! I like all the originals but this new one went into a depth of the character the others never seemed to. I liked the actor portraying Freddy and the other actors playing the teens. All in all the best “Nightmare” movie. So yes, that one is definitely one worth downloading! Hope it helps.

The nose, nasal dorsum, or tip can be revised substantially and improved tremendously, by injecting these cosmetic fillers. A recommended combined approach for Rhinoplasty or Revision Rhinoplasty using Juvederm or Restylane are to use these fillers as an ancillary procedure during the Rhinoplasty rather than operate on a certain part of the nose, which can be difficult and not as predictable.'”,-

Hi there every one, here every one is sharing these knowledge, therefore it’s good

So let us take a look at the fashions you will encounter while
searching for your dream gown. White also symbolizes the
woman as the bride of Christ and He as the bridegroom. Nonetheless browsing for your Wedding Dress does not
have to depart you actually feeling wired, especially with this particular tutorial close to hand.
