More – Build Better Travel Sites

  • January 26, 2012

MyTravelToolbox.comMy Travel Toolbox (MTT) is the perfect service for cash-strapped webmasters that know their sites don’t look half as good as their competitors’, and are nowhere as informative. This plug-in lets them have sites that are nicer to look at and which come packed with all the right features, without having to hire a single designer or coder just to have a better site. MTT is specifically focused on the travel industry, and it’s a platform that lets webmasters improve their sites by adding lots of tools to them. You can have airport codes displayed on your site, show international dialing codes, explain international electricity standards, list international travel requirements, include a currency converter… in short: add all the kind of information that people who are traveling somewhere look for online sooner or after. And if you provide it to them from the very beginning, then that’s basically it. You’ll have them in your pocket from the start.

All of these tools can be added with zero effort, as you simple have to cut and paste a line of code into your site for the relevant tool to be displayed. And you can get started for free, as there’s a “Basic” plan that costs nothing. If you have a larger site and need more tools, or if you want the ads that come with the free plan to be removed then you can sign up for any of the five paid plans that are available. Even the less expensive plan (the “Silver” plan, it costs $9.95 per month) can have all ads removed.

More – Remove People From Photos

  • December 10, 2011

PhotoUpz.comThere’s lots and lots of online tools for improving and enhancing photos. Sites like Pixenate, Splashup and Mugtug have always made it super-easy to turn any photo of yours into the kind to post on a site like Facebook or Flickr for all to see. Yet, even when there’s hundreds and hundreds of apps for having images edited right on your browser, there’s still a good couple of operations that are tricky to pull off. Take removing objects and /or people from any image, for example. Even by conservative standards, that’s something we’d willingly do to one out of three pictures that we take. And there’s no easy way to do it. Unless you turn to a service like PhotoUpz, that is.

PhotoUpz lets you edit any photo of yours in ways that are certainly powerful and different. An application that you must buy and download, it lets you remove people, objects and parts of the scenery from any photograph. You can remove tourists that are making faces in the background, you can take away that unglamorous hot dog stand that spoils that great photo with the love of your life… and come to it, you can remove your ex from any photo. You don’t want to bin the only photo you have at the Leaning Tower of Pisa just because “that” person is next to you. Using PhotoUpz, you’ll be able to make the necessary adjustments until your image is usable again.

InboundWriter.comInboundWriter is letting people master SEO in a way they can but find appealing nowadays: socially. InboundWriter provides bloggers and webmasters with a ready chance to know what people are searching in real time. They can explore the words that are more recurrent when people are looking for content online, and that is done in just a couple of clicks, as bloggers and webmasters simply have to specify a couple of words that are connected with the topics they usually write about (or that they are thinking about tackling). Using that as a starting point, InboundWriter can go through search engines and social media websites and determine which words they should use in the posts they write.

And the way everything works, creative writers get to know not only which words should be used but exactly where words should be placed within the texts they are penning. Any text that is created using InboundWriter is actually given a popularity score, so that figuring out how likely any piece is to be successful can be measured well in advance. Which is just incredibly useful if you are a budding blogger, of course.

InboundWriter is free if you intend to optimize eight or less documents each month. If you must handle more than that, then you can sign up for a paid monthly plan ($ 19.95) giving you the chance to optimize an unlimited number of documents.

  • March 7, 2011

HealthMonth.comHealth Month is a web-based game for people who want to improve their health. As its creators themselves say, Health Month is all about combining the science of nutrition and behavior change with the concept of social game playing. The idea here is to let you improve your health, one month at a time. You choose the one aspect you would like to improve from the following ones: dietary, fitness, relationship, mental health and financial health.

A rule will be set down for that month, such as eating more vegetables, smoking half the number of cigarettes you habitually smoke, or sitting less in front of your computer, and doing more exercise. Anyway, you will work at that for the whole month, after which you will add new rules and try to abide by them. Until rule by rule and month by month you have overcome all that there was in the way of leading a healthier life.

This is a really interesting approach – the more seriously you take some situations, then the harder it is to arrive at a satisfactory conclusion. It is important to learn to let your hair down, to take things more calmly. Sites like this one are necessary for people to understand that relaxation will lead them to where they want to get much faster. So, this gets a definitive thumbs-up from me.

SeoSUE.comUnderstanding how search rankings work is not easy. Far from it – sites become popular and fall from grace so quickly that webmasters know there is not such a thing as a winning formula letting their sites rise to the top and stay comfortably there.

Keywords, backlinks, tweets and retweets… there are a hundred aspects at play. And keeping a grasp on as many of these as possible is the challenge that every webmaster faces daily. And even if he devotes himself to the task in full, it is going to be a time-consuming and tiring task. Fortunately, there are tools like SeoSUE available.

Generally, SeoSUE is an online service that enables webmasters to explore the sites of their competitors in order to understand why they are better ranked than theirs. This service can look for and uncover the vast majority of tactics and strategies used by those who have been around for a while, and let people who are just getting into the World Wide Web implement them on their own sites.

  • March 8, 2010

StaffGuardian.comIt is not uncommon for workforces to become spread and distributed nowadays, and for employees who usually work at a specific location to end up working somewhere other than there. This new service aims to make the whole experience easier not only on staff members but also on the ones who have to look after them.

In general terms, this site provides a platform whereby the status and the location of staff can be viewed at all times, and that also makes for notifications to be sent out whenever anything should happen. Employees update what they are doing in a way not that dissimilar to the updating of statuses in social platforms like Facebook or Twitter (IE, “Just arrived”, “Meeting in Washington, be back on Thursday” ), and that is taken as the starting point for knowing their whereabouts at all times.

This web-based solution comes in three different incarnations, and the big difference seems to be the actual number of users that are supported – the “Value” plan offers support for 10, the “Medium” package supports 30, and the “Premium” plan supports up to one hundred.

CoCreateLondon.comI am featuring this site if only because I would love to see similar ones come along and cover major cities in the US. The title of the website itself is pretty clear, and it gives you a good indication of what to expect if you visit it.

It is a community resource with a concise aim: the betterment of London.

The site involves suggestions that are put forth by users, and then voted upon both by other users and site visitors. When I checked it out, some featured suggestions included “Putting air conditioning on the tubes would improve life in London during the Summer 100%” and “Encourage more frequent outdoor dancing!”. The one that topped the list, incidentally, was the suggestion that read “Free wi-fi hotspots in public spaces across town”.

I don’t really know if someone is paying any heed to these suggestions. But as a starting point, these sure are interesting. And the fact that people could actually have a key input in the way their hometowns are evolving just can’t be obviated, much less dismissed.

More – Promoting Your Site The Social Way

  • February 4, 2010

Donubi.comDonubi is a social network revolving around a premise which is quite novel: the real stars of the network are not the users, but their sites. That is, the idea is to let users openly promote their sites and discover new ones in the process.

The concept is interesting to say the least – after all, is there an easier way to promote a service than simply helping out other people in the same position as you? Besides, promotion of this type is far more likely to result in longstanding users instead of “one and done” visitors that just won’t give your site a second glance.

In a certain sense, Donubi adheres to a “what you put in, is what you get out” since comments die after a period of time (currently 30 days). This means that anybody can top the list of sites under a specific genre if they put the necessary effort in.

The comments that are provided (“advice” in the site’s parlance) will bear either a plus or a minus sign, and that advice will directly affect the listing of your site. Collecting good comments will rank you higher, whereas a number of bad comments will result in your site ending up buried in the lower ranks.

Rootein.comGetting healthy habits and improving the way you live is not that difficult, but it might pose a difficult to some. I think it all boils down to having the determination to keep going at something without losing sight of where it is you are headed.

And that is exactly what this site aims to let you do: to keep you motivated as you work up your “rooteins”.

Leaving aside that most unfortunate word play, the site is good in every sense. A calendar is provided to make it simple for you to track your progress, and features like daily reminders and a slack detector will “gently” nudge should you go missing too many days in a row. Mobiles are already supported, and you can both receive reminders while you are on the go and access the Rootein site from anywhere.
