Tool(s) of the Week: Errr...I don't think there were any good tools this week.

I did take the PPC chapter of my SEO book and give it away free though. Not sure if I want to do this long term as it can give me more stuff to need to update, but I just revised it and you can download your free copy here:

I take the words of anyone who can boost the year over year earnings of a bank by 26% in a category as stagnant as banking as nothing but pure marketing gospel. Almost good enough to make me religious...
