Resources and Tools
At one time this was the only index on the site with linked pages to
references and resources for the topics listed in the Related Directories
heading. As the page grew I have added new directories. Many webmasters have
this page bookmarked so the related links area is just a convenience for
Use this link to jump to the information not contained
in the Related Directories heading.
Almost all of the directories below have articles and tools developed or
written by Da' Tmeister. The references and resources have all been reviewed
before they are added to the database so in a sense this is a miniature
version of yahoo! I seldom if ever add links to sites that have solicited
them. I am adding a Reciprocal Link program to the site (or may have added
by the time you read this), however at this time it is still in development.
Search Engine Placement Index:
References, resources and tools for optimizing your site rankings on

discussion lists, newsgroups and publishing your own ezine/newsletter.
Site Development & Style & Content Tutorials:
Not a lot here but there are a few articles that may be of interest to

References and resources for HTML. I will be adding a search program
that will search the HTML documentation for keywords.
About two and a half years ago I started a journey that is the primary
reason this site has not been updated. It started with a course on internet

found knowledge has enabled me to build a database driven site and add
functionality for newsletter publishing and distribution. Most
of the 100 or so programming links I have will soon be in this index. For
now it is mainly what used to be on the HTML page under CGI, java etc.
The promotion index has almost everything you need to promote a website.
Many of the new tools in development will be automating or tracking
activities covered in the index.
Marketing references and resources.
