Here’s a real quick tip that I discovered the other day. When using firefox browser you can quickly access Google docs, Google Analytics, Google Keyword tool, Gmail ect. In fact all Google tools that you use can be in your browser by simple typing a few letters into the URL bar. For example say you want to open Google Docs, just type doc and it will suggest Google Docs below. Click that and you there. So for gmail just type gma.. into the browser url bar and hey presto, Gmail in the suggestions.
The same applies for all the tools, presumably you have to have used that tool recently for it to show up in the firefox suggestions. You could of course create a folder in your firefox bookmark also that stashes all your google tools.
Was this Quick Tip of any use to you ?
Got a quick tip like this you wanna share ?

If you want to start an online business, or if you want to make your current online business more profitable, I have a great site to recommend to you today. Solid information that is real and it’s free.
I love Internet Marketing but I sometimes get sick and tired of Internet Marketers and so called Guru’s with them talking in circles and pushing over hyped products that you don’t really need. I have been following Eric Holmlund for a while now and he has been creating a series of 120 videos (all 100% Free) based on making money online and building a real online business.
Eric starts at the very beginning. It’s OK if you don’t know anything about online business.
Eric is showing you how to build an online business from ‘A’ to ‘Z’. If you’re an experienced internet marketer, it is intresting to go through the the basics, because he is also sharing all of his advanced techniques too.
He has a lot of personal experience and success in online business, which qualifies him to teach you what he knows. And he is a “normal” guy, and is trying to avoid the hype as much as possible.
Well worth checking out wether you are a newbie or experienced Marketer.
Check out Erics Tips today and let me know what you think.
The Internet today is all about interaction, and leaving feedback by commenting is the most basic way to start getting involved and “have you say”. Comments can be left on blogs, videos, social networks and many other places. The part where it starts getting confusing is when you start to look at the different etiquette and types of commenting.
How To Comment Where
For Example if you watched a video on Youtube (or similiar) and you liked it, and leave a quick comment like,
“Great Stuff, Thanks”
On video sites this seems to be ok, but if you were to leave that same comment on some blogs it may be not be enough. You must contribute something or make some sort of point.
Remedy : Try not to just dive in and say whatever. First take the time to read other peoples comments and get a feel for the style of feedback being left.
Including a Link in Your Link.
Different people have different approaches on this, but generally I belive that if you see that other people drop a few links in their comments then as long as you add some thing of value and join the discussion then it is ok. You start becoming recognized as a spammer when you start leaving irrelevant comments like,
“hey, check this out http://www.something.com/ ”
Remedy : My as a little extra rule I personally try to follow is that I never leave a link if it is my first time commenting on someone’s blog. Second time, and if other people leave links then, ok.
Signing Your Comment.
I always leave my name at the bottom of my comments as if it was a signature. Until a while back when I found this post that spun me out about is it wrong or write to sign your name at the end of a comment. Check this out…
This was what turned out to be a controversial blog post in 2007 by Lorelle who is one of the original wordpress bloggers.
”If You Sign Your Blog Comments, You Are a Dork !”
Comment Signatures – Don’t Sign Your Comments
Today’s blog comments feature a fairly consistent form. You fill in your name or blog name, email, and website address and then type in your comment. When it appears on the blog, your email should be hidden, but your name becomes a link to the website address you just gave. And most say “Lorelle says:” or “Comment by” and then your comment appears. So don’t sign your name and include a link to your blog in your comments. It’s redundant. It makes you look like you don’t know what you are doing.
A comment isn’t a letter.
I’ll say it again, just so we’re clear about this: A comment is not a letter.
A blog comment does not start with “Dear Lorelle” and end with “Yours sincerely” and name, address, email, phone number, or website address.
These types of comments are usually left by people with little or no experience with blogs, blogging, or commenting.
Actually this was the first blog that I discovered a few years ago when I first tasted wordpress. An excellent Blog, but this particular blog post surprised me. Some comments turning a little nasty .
Do you sign your name on comments? has reading this blog post changed your thoughts on it ?
I have been searching for a way to make my commenting eaiser, but just can’t seem to find that magic tool to manage my commenting. Commenting on other peoples blogs and managing my occasional received comments on this blog is just one of those areas where I have not yet found a easy solution.
For Do-Follow commenting I have played with CommentKahuna but the free version is rather limited.
I’ve tried quite a few but I just can’t find the “best” commenting tool or system yet. Any tips or recommendations would be much appreciated.
I recently have upgraded to Roboform Pro and am very impressed. I have been using the Free version of RoboForm for months now and have been constantly surprised by how useful this little bad boy actually is. Of course it remembers all your passwords securly, but is much more than just a password manager.
RoboForm’s Auto Form Filler has saved me so much time never having to fill out any more online forms for registration, joining sites, forums, social networks etc. Just choose an identity, click and it fills out all fields with information I have stored on RoboForm.
Roboform also has a Safenotes feature which is another handy tool that I have only recently started using. It is prettey much like a little note book that you can store random info. No more little bits of paper lying around my desk.
Roboform’s Password Generater can also be useful if you want to tighten up your security and stop using the same password for every site. (yep, thats the way I used to do it, same password for everything-then I don’t forget)
Bookmarks is also another intresting feature that I have just started playing around with. Solid, secure bookmarking.
RoboForm is one of those tools that after a short time of using it you will wonder how you ever survived before without it.
If your not already using RoboForm then Get it for Free today and try it out.
