TitleWave Book & Post Title Generator

I recently had the great pleasure of working with Shelley Hitz of Author Audience Academy to create a book title idea generator called TitleWave.

At her site, Shelley offers a training course and community site for inspiring authors to get their book written and published within 30 days.

She had seen my previous Title Generator for TweakYourBiz. I’d based that upon my own Topical Brainstorm tool.

Shelley wanted a new web-app more focused for her audience that would generate book title ideas and such like based upon multiple inputs rather than just one keyword I’d done prevously. This would allow her to create more complex and richer titles and subtitles for her clients. We also needed the ability to upload new templates so she can continue to easily add seasonal ideas.

We were also mindful of the needs of a modern audience so we developed the tool using the Bootstrap framework, this allowed us to create a tool that would work well on mobile and tablet in addition to the desktop.

Shelley has published over 35 books using her ASCENT method, so if you’re an aspiring non-fiction author, head over to her site to see how she can help you publish your book.


Introducting Online Sales Webmaster Tools

Online Sales Webmaster Tools

Over the many years I’ve been developing websites and working in Search Engine Optimisation I’ve developed a number of scripts, tools and bookmarklets.

Inspired by Small business advice from Jason Fried 37signals, then reading Getting Real and with a pricing structure influenced by
Pinboard I decided to release the Online Sales Webmaster Tools as monthly paid subscription.

I’ve already got more than 50 tools and bookmarklets in the offering and I have many more to publish. The price increases with each new subscriber so it pays to get in early.

These tools are forged in the “less is more” mold, so if you find you outgrow them and need more, consider the SEObook Community & Tools or Raven SEO.

In the meantime, the Online Sales Tools will do pretty much all you need as a webmaster at a low monthly cost. Note that the annual fee is less than the cost it would take to pay a programmer to develop just one or two of these tools.

Links On Page Bookmarklet pt. ii

After I wrote the Google Results Bookmarklet some feedback form Marty Lamers led me to revise my previous Onpage Links Bookmarklet to also include the text boxes that make it easy to grab the links.

I’ve updated the styling to highlight the nofollow links, and to “stripe” the output to make it easier to read.

At the bottom of the page I’ve created several of the textarea boxes, so you can grab various types of links:

  • All the no followed links
  • All the followed links
  • Just the external links
  • Just the external followed links
  • The external nofollowed links

Once more drag the link in the big green box to your bookmark bar and when you’ve on a page you want to analyse hit the bookmarklet. It will open a new window showing all the links and with several text boxes with the links as detailed above.

Google Results Bookmarklet

There are newer improved versions of the bookmarklet, an older plain version SERPS & Adwords Bookmarklet (free) and subscribers can access the latest pretty 2016 version here: Serps Bookmarklet 2016.

The following bookmarklet (is very broken!) will display the google results for a term in a format that’s easier for copying.

Just drag the following link in the big green box to your bookmark bar and when you’ve completed a search in Google it will open a new window with the results listed with position, URL and anchor text (the page title normally).

Below that are two boxes so you can easily grab the URLs themselves or use the HTML to make a resources page.

This video should make its usage clear.

Onpage Links Bookmarklet

Often when researching backlinks I’ll want to quickly see the onpage / outgoing links from a given page. This bookmarklet displays all the links from a page, gives their anchor text, and also the “rel” attribute for spotting nofollows etc.

Because WordPress gets a little confused with the javascript code, click here for the onpage links bookmarklet. From that page please drag the big button to your bookmarks toolbar.
