    Looking for Recommendations


    hi... and thanks in advance for any advice anyone can offer to my questions. I'm sort of new to seo so I'm trying to get up to speed with some of the things to do. So if I sound ignorant... lol... it's probably because I am.

    First, I found a couple of tools and was wondering what everyone thought of them. The first is a tool I found that is suppose to tell me how many times a keyword was searched for on google and yahoo. The tools name is Spellweb (http://www.spellweb.com/cgi-bin/ysw.pl). I was wondering if anyone had used this tool and if it was reliable.

    Second, I found a tool that critics web pages based on specific search engines. The tools name is WebPosition. It seems pretty informative and I like what I see, but before I start making changes to any web sites, I'd like to know everyone elses opinion.

    Lastly, where can I find a good SEO FAQ for the specific search engines? You know... SEO FAQ for Google vs. Yahoo vs. who ever.... I had seen some general FAQ's with some general information but nothing overly specific to the search engine and after I ran that WebPosition tool, it sort of made me wonder if I understood how to optimize for Google.

    Anyway... If I'm posting in the wrong location... I apologize... And thanks in advance for any advice anyone can offer.

    KTyson, Anyone purporting to know the number of searches daily on Google/Yahoo probably works for them and I doubt that the site owner does, though it might be interesting to see where they're coming from. Try Digital Points Keyword tool. It compares Overture and Word Tracker. http://www.digitalpoint.com/tools/suggestion/

    About Web Position, I would be suprised if all of what it tells you isn't available for free with the hundreds of online tools. Here's a decent place to start. http://forums.seochat.com/seo-tools-75/
