    Rogsmith, I'm new to E-P too, and fairly new to the buying and selling of websites. I just want you to know from another "newbie" perspective that I sincerely appreciate your participation on these forums and all of your questions. I look around for your threads because they will be full of useful information.

    I think we joined around the same day, and as I try to immerse myself in the E-P culture I'm realizing that there are a few major players on this forum who are always there to help, no matter what. No ones perfect, mistakes will be made, but like you I'm here to learn.

    Just thank you and please keep it up

    Please be aware that while there are major players here, they are heavily involved in business and have responsibilities to themselves and their families. It is not reasonable to assume they will 'always' be there to help those who will not help themselves.

    Someone pushing for answers with numerous questions in three days is not taking the time to learn what is available on these forums. People are here to share, not to become unpaid consultants to new users.

    Everyone here is respectful and takes responsibility for themselves, then shares what they can. Trust me, it is possible to alienate the help available. - just a bit of advice...

    Dropbox - I put everything in dropbox. From copies of all my page content to passwords in case I am ever away from my computers and *must* make an update.

    Google Analytics - This is a very powerful and free stats program. Unless you're a pro you will never use all the available features.

    Visual Website Optimizer - They have a free version that will get you at least one and maybe two split tests per month. You *are* split testing, right?

    Xenu Link Sleuth - This is good for finding broken links, images etc... It will also create a basic HTML site map. For SEO purposes it is OK, but I much prefer OptiSpider

    OptiSpider - Probably the best (free) SEO tool that I use. You can easily see how the search engines can traverse your site, find out how many internal links are pointing to each page - and where those links are coming from.

    Rank Checker - This is from SEObook.com - it's a good, free, bulk rank checker. It often gets the ranking wrong (under reporting) so always hand check your best keywords if they seem to be making no movement according to this program.

    Web Developer Plugin for Firefox - Being able to turn off JavaScript with the click of a button is great. Same for CSS and images.

    W3 Semantic Extractor - a quick glance to see how a search bot may initially view your site --> w3.org/2003/12/semantic-extractor.html

    Evernote - "Evernote allows users to capture, organize, and find information across multiple platforms. Users can take notes, clip webpages, snap photos using their mobile phones, create to-dos, and record audio. All data is synchronized with the Evernote web service and made available to clients on Windows, Mac, Web, and mobile devices. Additionally, the Evernote web service performs image recognition on all incoming notes, making printed or handwritten text found within images searchable."

    I'm a member of flipfilter. The searching & display capabilities are excellent. There are many criterea choices to choose from as well. The only negative that I've found (and this isn't a negative towards flipfilter) is that almost all of the sites are being sold by Flippa. But I would definitely recommend signing up for at least a month. I think it was only $14 for a month. That will give you enough time to evaluate the benefits.
