    James,
    If you see my sites whole screen, it's only because I make my sites at about 1000 width instead of 800 - which means people who still have the 800 width have to scroll. But people with 1024 and above (about 80% + of internet users) do not. It is still not full screen for any of the resolutions - just wider.

    If you want your site to be universal with no sidescroll, you'd have to keep your 800 width in BV.

    Thanks, Liz and Paul! Good thing James bumped this post!

    HI Beth
    Thanks for the info. I think i am better keeping it at 800 then instead
    but it leaves not much room for other related products on the add to cart page but i will live!!!!
    If you have any other fanbtastic links hiding up your sleeve then please drop them down as its like having a birthday present early... and so much fun to do and add to the site makes it look so much more professional.... well i hope
    thanks beth your a gem!!!! i'll give you discount on my website... if you like jewellery that is. (it's coming soon)

    Ditto Beth, my site is now on the second page for the word 'Anxiety' and the first page for so many key phrases, the sites above it are mostly goverment or charity sites that I will probably never be able to compete with. So anyone who has a chance to read Beths e-book, do so, its a great place to start and learn.

    This is also a good chance to bump this post up, some excellent recources above.

    TY Andy and Paul - you are both superstars in my book - and have done such wonderful jobs with your own sites - people should look and learn from them.

    SEO isn't really hard - it just requires some homework and applying the right information - which is actually always remembering who the site is for (and it's never for ourselves).

    Question Re: SEO and Marketing Tools

    Hi Beth,

    You may want to investigate the current status of the above as I just spent half an hour on their website only to find that their software is now unusable.

    According to their forum posts, Google isn't issuing any new API's so there's a constant error message from people trying to use the above keyword tool.

    Cheers,

    Mark,
    I just went in and used it - so maybe it only works for those of us who have API's - so it isn't unusable for all.

    Yes, that list was written quite awhile ago. Somethings will have changed. I usually use my rank checker in Link Assistant now - which I love. You can download a trial of it - but to use it you'd really need to buy it - I have the entire Link Assistant package - but I believe you can purchase just this tool, also. Or go online and find many other tools that do the same - usually at a price.

    O*****re keyword tool has been down for a while now so I have been using a combination of Wordtracker, Trellian Keyword Discovery, and Aaron Walls new keyword tool that is now based of of Wordtracker and preceived precentages obtained from Google and Yahoo as well as MSN.

    Word on the street is that O*****re may not be coming back at all. Since Microsoft may be trying to purchase Yahoo, they may use it as an opening for their new Excel based keyword tool.
