Check Your Google Standing With Free Tools

We are sharing a small list of online tools to help you guage your site rankings in Google. These tools are absolutely free and you don't have to share your email address for using any of them.

Live Google PageRank - Matt says a PageRank update is underway and this tool will show you the Google PR of your website across multiple Google Data centers. So if you notice a higher PR in one of the datacenters, it could translate into a good news for you soon.

Google Cache Tool - You probably know that the query will return when Google last visited the page but Cool Cache tool goes a step further. Enter any URL and the tool will tell when Googlebot visited this and all other pages linking from it. Will also show if any pages aren't in the Google cache.

Visual PageRank - Like WebMaster eyes, you type-in a URL and the tool will show a nice PageRank graphic over each of the hyperlink suggesting the PageRank of the linking pages. Very useful when you want to get an idea about what links on your site enjoy a higher Google PR.

Spider View - Googlebot (or for that matter even MSN and Yahoo spiders) are sort of blind to CSS and Javascripts. The Spider View tool will show you your webpages from the eyes of Googlebot - plain HTML text minus all the bells-n-whistles.

Finally, if you're really serious about SEO and Google search rankings of your blog, do register your site(s) at Google WebMaster Tools.

How to Download Contacts from Facebook To Outlook Address Book

Facebook users are not too pleased with the "walled garden" approach of Facebook. The reason is simple - while you can easily import your Outlook address book and GMail contacts into Facebook, the reverse path is closed. There's no "official" way to export your Facebook friends email addresses or contact phone numbers out as a CSV file so that you can sync the contacts data with Outlook, GMail or your BlackBerry. Some third-party Facebook hacks like "Facebook Sync" (for Mac) and "Facebook Downloader" (for Windows) did allow you to download your Facebook friends' names, emails, mobile phone number and profile photo to the desktop but they were quickly removed for violation of Facebook Terms of Use.

PhishTank Detects Phishing Websites by Digg Style Voting

OpenDNS, a free service that helps anyone surf the Internet faster with a simple DNS tweak , will announce PhishTank today. PhishTank is a free public database of phishing URLs where anyone can submit their phishes via email or through the website. The submissions are verified by the other community members who then vote for the suspected site. This is such a neat idea as sites can be categorized just based on user feedback without even having to manually verify each and every submission. PhishTank employs the "feedback loop" mechanism where users will be kept updated with the status' of the phish they submit either via email alerts or a personal RSS feed . Naturally, once the PhishTank databases grows, other sites can harness the data using open APIs which will remain free. OpenDNS would also use this data to improve their existing phishing detection algorithms which are already very impressive and efficient. PhishTank | PhishTank Blog [Thanks Allison] Related: Google
