Quintura.com Visual Find Engine 

Slick search cloud interface. Nice tool for SEO keyword research. I have found it useful for finding negative keywords. Overall I found search results very meaningful.

Submit Web Sites to Search Engines for FREE 
Below are the major search engines and there FREE web site registration tools. Both Google and Yahoo have a web master tools that allow you to see your index stats. I just enable a new feature of Google Webmaster Tools that will auto index the pictures on this site. I was happy to find out that Simple PHP Blog aka SPHPBLOG has a Google site map generator built into the system. The page sitemap.php in the root directory kicks out XML output that Google is looking for. Here is the XML output for this site: www.kcocco.com/sitemap.php
Note, that MS and Yahoo have recently join Google in using a standard XML sitemap .. here is the newly created standards site: www.sitemaps.org/

Microsoft adCenter 
Started an ad campaign on Microsoft adCenter this morning. Aaron Wall from SEOBook.com posted a link to an excellent promo:code DM-2-1106 for $200 worth of ad spend for opening a new account. You are required to spend $5 bucks to get the account setup and then it's free marketing money!
I found the setup straight forward and similar to Google's and more intuitive than a Yahoo SEM startup. With Google the ads start to run within the hour we will see how long the MS adCenter 'editorial review' process takes? I did run across one very interesting targeting features that Microsoft offers over Google. The following screen shot is the gender and age incremental targeting options:

The Microsoft adCenter keyword tool did not integrate as well with keyword list building as Google's AdWords. The interface to paste in keywords would only take 200 keywords?...there was another import feature yet to be researched. Below is a nice feature of the keyword generator that shows search volume by gender/age. There are also options to view search traffic volume by Wealth Index & Lifestyle! The wealth index showed approx. 25% unknown and Lifestyle had about 85% unknown data. There are no features to target market to these demographics ..yet?...

Winterstick Swallow Tail 

My nearly extinct Winterstick Swallow Tail. Today's base at Brighton was only 32 inches, looks like the Swallow Tail will have to wait.... I do not plan on riding this board until there is 100inch plus on the ground with at least 1foot of fresh.
