Social media signals factor into how high search engines rank a website content from Pinterest can show up in search engines results, leading customers to your page and creating potential clients. Pinterest is perfect in providing content that people are looking for.

Broken link building is one of the most effective white hat link building strategies. Many Webmasters use the broken link building strategy to find broken links that can in return turn into a link building opportunity. Once you have found the broken link contact the website owner. You will need to encourage the Webmaster owner to replace the broken links with yours in return. Broken link building is very effective since no Webmaster wants to be penalized or want broken links on their websites.

Do people need to spend money (PPC, paid advertising) to make money with Affiliate Marketing?

It’s not necessary for anyone to spend money with PPC to make money with Affiliate Marketing. Learning how to optimize your website will helps you to become more appealing to a larger audience with out spending money.

Do you think 3rd party blog post links and e-book?

The 3rd party blogs does really well. On the other hand, I do not think e-book submission help.

Interview of SEO Expert Michael Martinez


SEO Expert Michael Martinez
SEO Expert Michael Martinez

This time I am interviewing one of the top SEO expert Micheal Martinez.  He is currently running his blog: SEOTheory I am very much glad that he answered all my difficult questions related to SEO, Social media and many more. I appreciate his time and efforts he had put in this interview. So I hope my readers gonna enjoy it.  

First of all thanks a lot for accepting my interview proposal. I and my readers are very pretty glad  to have you . Please tell us about yourself and your educational background.

I was born and raised in the southern United States before there were many educational programs for gifted students.  I dropped out of high school in the 9th grade because I was frustrated with the education system holding me back.  Eventually I went to college and earned two degrees in Data Processing and Computer Science.  I have always been a science fiction and fantasy fan, which may have influenced my decision to work with computers.  I got my first programming job when I was 15; it was part of a Summer Jobs program for teens.  That was in 1975.

I became involved in the online world in the early 1990s through a job that required me to join a software support community on CompuServe.  From there I gradually migrated to the Internet and I built my first Website in 1996.  By the end of 1998 I had become involved with search engine optimization.  After practicing SEO for myself and occasionally as a contractor for many years, I changed careers in 2006 and took a position as Director of Search Strategies for a company in Seattle.  In 2012 I went back to freelancing and formed an SEO consulting partnership with my friend Randy Ray.  We had collaborated on some projects for a few years and finally decided to work together full-time.

What suggestions would like to my blog What things you didn’t like about my blog? Please give me your opinion.

Create a name for yourself by publishing articles you will enjoy reading in five years.  If you feel they are still useful and relevant then – without any reservations or excuses – they probably will be and your readers will probably agree with you.  No amount of SEO advice can outperform that approach to blogging.

 Which blog do you open daily and what are your favorite blogs ?

I read several SEO blogs daily, mostly because they cover newsworthy topics: Search Engine Roundtable, Search Engine Land, and Marketing Land.  I also check some of the official Google blogs on a regular basis.  I like Jeff Bullas and Dan Zarella’s blogs, although they don’t write as much as I would like them to.  Bill Slawski’sSEO By the Sea” is a must-read for anyone who is interested in search algorithm mechanics.  Eric Enge’s interviews on Stone Temple’s Website are simply amazing.

And I watch the Google Webmaster videos even though they seldom provide much insight for advanced SEOs.  Sometimes you come across a real gem.

What are your favorite social media tools ? Which tools do you prefer to use to incease user engagement?

At the present time I am using Twitterfeed and Twuffer more than any other tools.  I try to respond to most people who say something to me, either on my blogs or on Twitter.  I ignore Facebook as much as possible but once in a while I respond to someone there, too.

Two things improve engagement in my experience: treating people with respect and publishing something where they feel compelled to discuss it with you.  Writing from the heart rather than from keyword research works better if you’re trying to get people to stop lurking and say something.

These days I can see that many well established blogs and websites losing their rankings? Why this is happening. Is SEO dead ?

Search engine optimization should never have been tied to rankings.  12 years ago we didn’t know any better.  Five years ago we DID know better but people continued to talk about rankings.  We should always have been measuring SEO value in terms of search referral traffic.

I find that search engine optimization works just as well today as it did 12 years ago.  What is not working so well are all the bad ideas people have been sharing on their blogs, at conferences, and in their books.  SEO should not be treated as a production process that can be followed according to a formula.  You have to treat each Website differently.

The Websites that run into trouble with the search engines are following formulas for success.  Ultimately that leads to failure.

Is there any benefit of doing SEO on copied content, as some experts are ranking copied content high on SERP?

That is a long, complicated topic.  The short answer is, yes, you should optimize duplicate or copied content.  But the longer answer requires that you explain what it means to “optimize” such content for search.  Today we devote more effort to canonicalization because the search engines demand it; hence, the optimization process for duplicate content is not so much about how to bring in more traffic for it but how to use it to channel value into source content.

Recommend: Capture Your Audience with These 5 Amazing Content Marketing Tips

On the black hat side there are things you can do with duplicate content that leverage some of the gimmicks black hats favor.  Is that “optimization”?  I guess opinions will vary, but if you’re getting the best search performance value out of the copied content that you can, then that is optimal performance is it not?

Optimal performance does not necessarily equate to the most efficient, or most effective search marketing strategy.  I think people assume that if you achieve optimal performance you’re being efficient, but sometimes you pick the wrong strategy and you lose efficiency despite achieving optimal performance.

How does Google see backlinks from guest posts?

They treat guest post backlinks like they treat any other backlinks.  Every linking source has to earn Google’s trust.

I have been warning people not to use guest posts as a linking strategy for almost two years now, but not because guest posts are bad.  It is the pattern that you create when you do something “just for links”, “just for the search engines” that gets you into trouble.

Guest posting has always created incredible value for both writers and readers when the content was the most important part of the process.  The moment you start guest posting for links you devalue the content and yourself and that shows.  So naturally the search engines lose interest in what you are trying to say.

Being known by a million people is better than boosting a site to the top of a single popular keyword for a few weeks or months with links.  After the links stop working people stop reading your content because you made the links more important than your own name.

With increased volatility in the search engine landscape, how do you see SEO future shape up in the time to come? Does it still remain competitive to Paid Search Marketing?

Natural search engine optimization should always provide considerable value when compared with paid search marketing.  In fact, most people don’t do very well with paid search marketing.  It’s a very challenging business model and I know many people who avoid it because they lose money at it.

The PPC specialists who maintain high ROI have carved out an important niche for themselves.  That is what an organic search specialist has to do.  You have to show your clients sufficient ROI to keep them interested in the project.  Sometimes that just isn’t possible to do.

You can dominate a search result by spending a lot of money, but if the return on investment is poor then you have achieved a Pyrrhic victory.  It’s not worth winning.

5 must have SEO tools in your arsenal?

A blog.

A browser.

A Webmaster dashboard at the search engine.

A half-way decent spam filter.

A rudimentary analytics tool.

I am a big believer in “less is more” with search engine optimization.  The fewer tools you rely upon the better you have to become at seeing problems and finding solutions for them.   Tools hold people back.

Mobile SEO Dos & Don’ts?

DO make your site easy to read on a smart device.

DO use mobile-friendly navigation.  “Less is more”

DO expect mobile users to be more ephemeral than desktop users.

DON’T assume all “mobile” traffic is mobile.  Some of it is robots.

DON’T create short, fluffy content for mobile users.  They want a good return on their investment.  Mobile browsing is painful and users don’t want to waste their time on low quality content.

Best possible way to decipher the ‘not provided’ organic keywords?

I don’t actually worry about it.  I only ever advocated looking at search referral keywords for the sake of identifying weak content.  You can still do that by looking at which pages receive the least amount of referral traffic from search engines.

Why do you need to know that you received 1,000 visits for “FAVORITE KEYWORD”?  What is that going to tell you?

If you receive 1,000 visits for PAGE ALPHA and 1 visit for PAGE BETA then you know you need to do something about BETA.

How does Google know if one blog is a sponsored blog vs guest blog? We only do guest blogs, because we don’t want to buy links, but many blogs these days ask for money. 

Paid posting creates tell-tale signs, the so-called “statistical footprint”.  They have developed sophisticated learning algorithms but their spam teams have collected a large number of examples of “good sites” and “bad sites” for the algorithms to learn from.

What are some strategies for brainstorming and creating linkbait in SEO?

I like to scan news feeds and social media to see which conversations the media and their audiences keep going for several weeks.  If a topic has that long a lifetime in news and social media then it will probably have a long lifetime on the Web.

After choosing a topic I do some research to see which questions have been satisfactorily answered and which questions have not.  Of the answered questions, I look to see which ones whose answers are easy to find in search.

I usually come up with a short of list of topics I can write about.  At that point I pick the topic that is most interesting to me.  If I as the writer am interested in the topic I will probably write something pretty good for it.

This approach works well for all kinds of topics but if you only concentrate on upcoming events you have a better chance of “being there” when people go looking for answers.  That is, some well-promoted events stimulate increases in search traffic around related topics.  If you anticipate that growth in traffic then you can prepare the best, most useful content for people to find when the time is right.

What kind of competitor analysis tools you are using? Can you suggest best tools to track competitor backlinks?

When we look at backlinks my partner and I tend to use Majestic SEO and AHREFS.  But we don’t really recommend looking at competitor backlinks.  That’s usually a good way to find links that will get you penalized.

One of the directories I am in is being reviewed by Google. Should I be concerned that my website will be penalized?

One bad directory link won’t hurt you.  Five bad directory links should not hurt you.  Ten bad directory links probably won’t hurt you.  But if you’re getting a lot of directory links you should ask yourself, “Who uses these directories to find Websites?”

If a directory link is not sending you traffic you probably don’t need it.  Search engines don’t mind small niche directories that people actually use.  They do object to directories that were “made for SEO (link building)”.

Social shares from Blog itself and from using third party services like JustRetweet have same impact on Serp or not?

There is no SEO benefit from social shares.  Natural shares indicate that people are aware of you and interested in your content.  Natural shares should correlate well with other signals that search engines use to promote content that people like.

Artificial shares may create visibility for you in social media environments, and that visibility may translate into traffic.  But if you’re violating social media services’ guidelines by buying shares then you risk losing a valuable channel for traffic.

As with aggressive search engine marketing, aggressive social media marketing comes with risks and you need to be aware of and manage those risks.  Churn-and-burn marketing is not unique to SEO.  It also happens in social media.  No one should use churn-and-burn marketing strategies with any brand Website or social media account because once you lose that visibility it may be gone forever.

Interview with Tim Soulo from Discussing Various SEO Strategies


 As part of our Bloggers Ideas interview series, today we have  Tim Soulo from who have joined SEO world about 4 years ago, mostly working full time for different projects, doing some consulting and bootstrapping some personal projects. He will be answering various questions related to  SEO, Social Media & other Internet Marketing stuffs . So lets start with the interview.

Tim soulo interview from bloggerjet

First of all thanks a lot for accepting my interview proposal. I and my readers are very pretty glad to have you . Please tell us about yourself and your educational background.

Hey Jitendra, thanks for having me!

It’s really hard to describe what I’ve been doing for living for the past 6 years: I was involved in all kinds of internet marketing; I was building websites and online tools; creating and launching new products in different markets; optimizing web business of various online companies. So I guess that is something like “online business consulting”.

And a few years back I’ve started a personal blog where I was sharing some of the lessons I’ve learned along the way. It’s called BloggerJet. As for my education – it’s totally unrelated to marketing. So everything I know I’ve learned from books, blogs and friends.

How Can I Grow My Home-Based Business?

Well it really depends on the kind of business you’re running. If you have a solid product that really solves some issue – you can try putting up a sales page and buying ads. Oftentimes it’ll work if your product is good enough.

In case you don’t have any product idea yet, you can always start with a blog about something you’re passionate about and try to use this blog to attract clients.

You may also take products of other people and promote them either with ads or with your blog. That would be affiliate marketing. I mean there are tons of ways to launch and grow a home-based business.

How Can I Pitch My Product to Large Companies?

Well there are three fundamental rules you should follow:

1. Build a killer product.

2. Build a killer product.

3. Build a killer product.

If your product is really awesome, you won’t have any issues pitching it. Large companies may even reach out to you and offer you to become a partner if your product is worthy.

What Are Some Good Business Books to Read?

I’m a huge book lover and I can easily suggest you 20 good business books to read. But I’m going to name just three which I think are crucial for any business owner:

  • Tim Ferris – 4 Hour Workweek
  • Daniel Pink – Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us
  • Robert Cialdini – Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion

These three books cover absolutely different topics but each of them is absolutely crucial in running a successful business.

 If you build your site with WordPress what plugins should you install?

  •  WordPress SEO by Yoast is an absolute must.
  • Sharebar is perfect for displaying floating social media buttons next to your articles.
  • PopUp Domination will skyrocket your email subscribtion rates with a fancy email optin form.
  • TweetDis (this one developed by myself) will allow your visitors to tweet quotes from your articles with just one click

Is Guest Posting useful and how do you benefit from it? Matt Cutts recent article on guest posting had create panic situation among all webmasters.

I think Matt Cutts was referring to low quality articles that SEO companies create in hundreds and send out to every blogger in a hope that he may blindly publish it. Quality guest articles will always be a perfect tool to build traffic to your website and help it rank in search engines.

We shouldn’t stop our guest posting activities no matter what Matt Cutts says.

How do you improve your e-mail subscription rates?

The best known trick to improve e-mail subscription rate is to offer a freebie that can only be delivered to an email address of your visitors. Add PopUp Domination here and you will absolutely nail it!

However there’s a downside to offering a freebie like an ebook. After people get it they’re no longer interested in your further email updates and most of them will just unsubscribe after a few emails.So the workaround would be to turn your ebook into a series of emails and call it a “Free Email Course”.

The email subscription rates of an email form with a free ebook and the one with a free email course are exactly the same. But the people who opted for your email course will actually be looking forward to receiving those emails from you.

What e-mail management tool should you use?

I use MailChimp because it’s free and right now I don’t need any more features than those that it offers me. But I keep looking towards Aweber and Vero as well.

How do you convert social media traffic into business?

Social Media traffic is ten times worth than SEO traffic when it comes to making money with it. So most marketers I know don’t try to sell directly to visitors coming from social networks. They prefer to nurture them first.

The process is as follows:

 1. Send traffic from social media to a landing page with a freebie (preferably email course)

2. After people opt in, send tons of value their way for free to make them trust you and percieve you as an authority

3. Announce a free webinar to help them solve an issue they’re facing

4. On this webinar explain them what can they do, to solve the issue. But don’t explain HOW to do this

5. Pitch them your premium product that will show them HOW to do the things you’ve shared with them in your free webinars.

Voila! You’ve got paying customers!

How do I know if social media is generating leads for my business?

 You can quite easily setup event tracking in Google Analytics to see where your leads are coming from. Social Media is a very solid source of leads and then it’s up to you if you’re able to convert them into paying customers. But the formula I’ve shared above should really do the trick! That’s it. Thanks for having me for this interview, Jitendra. Hope that was helpful to your readers.

I hope you enjoy this interview, Tim had shared best strategies. So readers try to learn more and keep exploring in online marketing. Keep sharing knowledge and keep helping each other.

Interview of Uttoran Sen from


Hey you bloggers we are back again with another brilliant interview.

As part of our BloggersIdeas interview series, today we Uttoran Sen here, he is the founder of, and having good experience in Online Marketing, SEO and also called Social media expert. He loves blogging a lot. In this interview he would be sharing some useful SEO strategies.

Let’s start with interview!

Interview with uttoran sen  guestcrew

Please introduce you to my blog readers? Explain who are you apart from blogging life?

Answer – Hey, am Uttoran Sen – a self proclaimed SEO and Social media expert, an online writer and the CEO and Founder of Guest Crew.

Other than blogging, am a 27 year old guy who loves to read books, play online multi-player games like Travian and a lucid dreamer.

Please define terms “blogging” and “money making from a blog” your experience on them?

Blogging, in my opinion is a platform that can be used to reach an audience. When you monetize your reach – it becomes – Make money from Blogging.

I have made money from CJ, Adsense, Infolinks, Kontera, Chitika, payperpost, sponsoredreviews and pretty much any platform that was ever made to monetize blogs. My niche blogs have made a total of $17k from Adsense alone so far.

What type of hosting services you would recommend to bloggers? As reliable hosting is very much important in blogging ?

Go for a VPS is you can afford it. Guest Crew is hosted on a level 5 Hostgator VPS – we have occasional issues, I find atleast one downtime in 2 to 3 months time. There are a number of web hosts that I have come across; each of them had their own issues. If you are on a shared hosting and your blog is getting a lot of traffic – then no web host will be good for you. Move to a VPS as soon as possible.

I prefer hostgator because their live chat help is excellent and they solve script related issues that no other hosts does.

What inspire you to build a big guest platform guestcrew ?

I was one of those early birds who started doing guest blogging back in 2007. I used guest blogging to promote my own blog and my client’s blogs. I was an active guest blogger doing several hundred guest posts a month. The process is very time consuming – and wasting time on getting a post published is not a constructive use of our time. Time should be spent on writing great content – not trying to get it published.

So, to simplify things – I started Guest Crew.

Guest Crew is nofollow, so it is safe to use for guest blogging. Other than guest blogging we have social features which can be used to promote your content on the social media. Guest Crew already have a good portfolio of Influencers who can promote your content.

How many years you have been blogging.What do you feel about blogging?

I started blogging back in 2005 – it is ages now. I got my first domain in 2006, before that it was mostly free hosted blogs like – blogspot etc .

Blogging provides a platform to reach an audience – it is fun, it’s a source of income – for me it was hobby when I started out. I made a few sites on yahoo’s geocities etc. but nothing worked as good as blogspot. It was when the traffic had started to flow and I got my first clicks on my niche sites that I saw it’s true potential.

Very quickly I started doing niche research and built a small network of micro niche sites – each getting about 200+ unique a day and converting to about $800 to $1200 a month. I still do not have a primary blog though, unless you count my personal blog at or the Guest Crew blog.

I focused too much on micro niche blogging, did not really had any time left to build a strong personal blog. Am still trying that with

How many blogs do you have? Which blogs do you follow regularly?

At this moment I have only two blogs. My personal blog and the Guest Crew blog. I had over 30+ blogs at a time on different niches but slowly I have sold them all. Guest Crew takes away most part of my time – so really do not have time for anything else. I follow a number of blogs regularly.

Popular A-list blogs that I follow.

Copyblogger – Here is my latest Guest Post on Copyblogger.

JohnChow – My Guest Post on Johnchow.

WriteToDone – My Guest Post on WriteToDone

BoostBlogTraffic – My Guest Post on BoostBlogTraffic

Problogger – My Guest Post on Problogger

LifeHack – My Guest Post on Lifehack

KissMetrics – My Guest Post on KissMetrics

Some more Top Blogs that I recommend:

Smart Passive Income

Moz Blog


Apart from these, there are a number of blogs that I follow and recommend to others:
Growmap, by Gail.

Make a Living Writing, by Carol.

BloggingCage, by Kulwant.

Seo Writer, by David.

Adrienne Smith, by Adrienne.

Aha-Now, by Harleena

Basic Blog Tips, by Ileane

Famous Bloggers, by Hesham

Enstine Muki, by Enstine

Kabenlah, by Emmanuel

What are your tips on traffic generation? Please reveal some must use techniques to get more traffic to new blogs?

Sure, traffic generation is not that difficult. One just needs to be disciplined and consistent. Here are 3 traffic generation tips that one should absolutely follow.

Organic Traffic: Organic traffic is not that difficult to get. There are two big issues with this step. Some people don’t optimize and some over optimize. You just need to get a balance and keep going on.

At one time, I had a 100k+ monthly combined traffic on my small group of health blogs. It was never difficult, you need decent content – nothing extra ordinary and it is something that you can create yourself. Give 3 to 4 hours a day for content creation. That can easily get you about 1 really good – 1500+ words article.

Once you complete the article – take a small break and get refreshed. Then get back to work and start revising. Once you are sure that your article is great – post it. Do basic social promotions and some comments on related blogs. That is just enough.

Repeat this step everyday and in a few months time you will get some 100 to 200 very high quality content. Your organic traffic will rise everyday and in a few years time – you will have a very strong blog with thousands of visitors a day.

It is a slow process, you have to work hard – and be really consistent and disciplined about the entire process. But it will work out in time.

Social Media: Social media requires work – that is constructive social media. There is plenty of fake profiles and fake traffic available in the social sphere. Anyone can manipulate and send traffic – but that is not a long term strategy.

If you want a long term benefit from social media – start working on your social profiles.

Give it time, spend atleast 2 hours a day on your social profiles. Make sure to tweet atleast 8 times a day and keep following targeted people. Try to build as many profiles as you can on separate social networks. Focus on the big ones – Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Pinterest, G+ etc.

Here are a few additional tips:

1) Make self promotion look good.

2) Post natural content on the social media.

3) Share videos and infographics related to your business. Your followers should know more about you.

4) Write informational articles about the social network where you share your content.

Referral Traffic: Referral traffic comes from various sources. Here’s a list of things you can do to get referral traffic.

) Be active on the smaller social sites like – blogengage, blokube, dosplash, kingged etc.

Build a really strong profile in these sites – make sure to comment and engage with others. Then post your own links and get referral traffic.

2) Do Guest Blogging – Guest blogging still works and you can use Guest Crew to do nofollow guest posts and be safe from Google.

3) Blog comments – Blog commenting does not really works for the SEO purpose as it used to in the past. However for getting referral traffic – blog comments is a great way to do it.

4) Do round ups – link to others – promote other blogger’s posts. They will do so in return. That is how it always works – bloggers reciprocate.

How to handle guest post spam request?

The Easy way is to join a site like Guest Crew and mention clearly on your – “Submit a Guest Post” page that you only accept guest posts via Guest Crew. Since, guest crew always checks content for quality, all spam requests will be filtered out before reaching you.

Alternatively, spent another hour going through the requests and delete the 90% of the spam and reply to the 10% of the good ones. Some people delete the entire lot of guest post requests, with more and more spam getting into their inbox – I can’t really suggest them otherwise! But one should look at the benefits before killing guest blogging completely.

I allow guest posts on my sites mainly due to the following 3 reasons:

1) There are good writers out there and they have their own voice and style. My community can always take benefit of new ideas and tips and my blog can make sure of fresh content.

2) Am already active on multiple social networks – but I can’t be everywhere. When I accept a guest post and publish it – I make sure to explain the guest blogger for promoting the post on the social media. I have got plenty of traffic, social shares and comments from their promotions. I get traffic from social sites that I did not even know about.

3) Having a multiple author blog helps a blog to grow quicker. You can’t do everything yourself – you will need others to boost things up.

Matt cutts is now against guest blogging. Would you still prefer guest blogging?

Matt Cutts is against anything related to link building that works. Technically, he is right – links should not be built, they should be earned. The only problem is that it does not happen. If you don’t build links, your competitors will build them and beat you at Serps.

Anyway, Guest Crew is nofollow – so we are not worried about Matt Cutts.

What to do best in guest blogging.

Aim for bigger blogs – target the A-list blogs. One link from a huge site makes a major difference. It can help you land a big client as well. There is no point building hoards of smaller and spammy backlinks. Get a guest post on a strong blog that is related to your niche. Try getting a few of these every month and you are all set to make a popular blog yourself.

How to Reduce Landing Page Clutter?

We are doing a landing page redesign ourselves. You can check it on guest crew when we are done.

A Good landing page should have the followings things:

–      Name and Email id signup form.

–      A video or an image next to it.

–      And a few points explaining why the target audience should subscribe / buy etc.

Anything other than that, like social sharing buttons, extra information, useless details, longer signup forms etc. are all waste of space. If you want an optimized landing – keep it up to the point and nothing more.

On which platform you share your content, please share some unique content marketing platforms ?

I share my content pretty much on all possible platforms. There is no point leaving a single leaf unturned. I have used social bookmarking sites, article directories, sites of all sizes for guest blogging, web 2.0 sites etc.

Things change with time and I no longer do article marketing. That particular marketing method has run its course and no longer works. Here’s a few platforms that I do suggest for content sharing:

–      Build strong profiles on major social sites – facebook, twitter, g+, linkedin, pinterest, stumbleupon, reddit etc.

–      Be active on the smaller social sites like – kingged, blogengage, blokube, dosplash, bizsugar, inbound, etc.

–      Share your content on web2.0 sites like medium, linkedin today (long form posts), storify, etc.

–      Share your content on the community blogs of popular sites like buzzfeed, moz etc.

What kind of certification courses you would recommend to SEO & Online Marketing enthusiastics?

I don’t recommend any courses. If you want to learn something – go do it, get firsthand experience and learn from it.

Whay type of tools you use for keyword research please share.

I have used several tools over the years, saw them getting changed or shut down – and I had to move on to using other available tools. Adwords tool was my favorite, now it’s changed into keyword planner.

Am sharing a keyword search tool that I have used extensively over the years – Hope you like it.
