Symbaloo. It’s a technology that has apparently been around for a while now, but we’ve only just seen it. In short, imagine a graphical search engine and your collection of web bookmarks rolled into one.

You can basically sign up and build yourself a “Webmix” – which is essentially a grid that you place icons onto. You choose the icons, their colours and you can add images as well. They can then either link to OTHER webmix’s (so imagine bookmarks within folders) or link out straight to a website.

It’s not far off what Google have achieved with the custom Google homepage, but this is slightly different in that it looks really cool! We especially like the little icons that you can create and position. Not least because they are bright and app-like, but also because you can then fit more onto the page than you could with a Google home page.

How does this help you with SEO? It doesn’t. Not directly, anyway. But managing your time efficiently online is key to ensuring you are motoring your websites effectively. With that in mind, this handy little tool will lend you a helping hand when it comes to all things quick and links.

So if you are looking to speed up your web experience. Delete you bookmarks and just save this one. www.symbaloo.com. But keep us bookmarked all the same ;)

Of all social networking sites you’ve heard of, in all likelihood you won’t have heard of Screenr. It’s an unsung hero of the SEO world. Here’s just a snippet of what it is and what it can do for you with a bit of effort.

Screenr is a piece of screencasting software based online. You can visit it as screenr.com.
What’s so cool about Screenr? Well for all the screen-recording softwares out there, Screenr takes the biscuit by being completely free. You simply grab a username, set the dimensions of the recording – do your thing and it will save it to your profile. Better yet, you can post it directly to your youtube channel! Great stuff, right?

Sure, there is a pro version of Screenr that is slightly pricey – but it’s aimed at big businesses and I’m guessing that’s where their income is. But for SEO purposes, Screenr is perfect. How? I hear you cry! Let me explain.

I don’t know about you, but whenever I have a problem or a question that I can’t solve – the first place I will go will be Google. More often than not, I will find the answer I’m looking for. Sometimes it will be just a few words to explain my situation, but other times I will need a full tutorial, speech or in-depth discussion on the topic. That’s where youtube comes in. Thanks to Google’s takeover of Youtube in 2006, youtube videos are just as worthy of SEO juice than any other article – in some cases more so.

With all this in mind, think about the possibilties you could get in Google if you had some videos up there. And what better videos to use than screencasts talking about how your website meets the needs of the visitor!

Think about it. If you have a business, it was created to solve a problem or meet a need that was around. So simply illustrate that using Screenr, add appropriate tags to the youtube import video and you are golden! Sure it may take a bit of effort, but it’s easy to do and completely free. All you need is a computer, the Internet and a Screenr and Youtube account.

Go on. Give it a go!
