Marketing Your Site What's New ?
The Second Team

Anyone who has ever watched sports knows that the second team doesn’t usually play unless the starters have created a huge lead or sadly if the team is losing badly. Most people don’t watch games so they can see the second team play. However, second team Players often work harder to impress the Coach or to try and win a spot in the starting line up. It isn’t unusual to see a game where both teams are struggling become much more exciting when the second team players enter the game.

The second team comes through when the first team players from either team could not. The second team players often face weaker competition and are typically doing every thing they can so they will stand out and get a job as a starter. Our second team web pages or should I say second tier pages should do at least as much. Not necessarily trying to become a home page but offering our visitors some value that our home pages do not. The second level pages on most websites are where the real meat and potatoes of the site exist.

It is all in the details. Most website home or landing pages give you a crash course in the content and purpose of your site. But the details are often found in pages linked to from the main page. Take the PPP Design site as an example: It doesn't take long to figure out that we design websites but the details such as how we work, how to get a free quote and contact pages are linked to from our main page. This makes these second team (tier) pages just as important as or even more important in some ways than our home page.

This makes it clear that each page of your website needs to be optimized, copy must be clearly written and that each page should be easily found once a visitor has arrived at your home page. This seems like a no brainer but I often stumble across sites with poor navigation, or other issues that make using the website less than comfortable.

The best coaches will tell you that the second team is every bit as important to their success as the first stringers. Why would it be any different for your website?
  Now They Have Gone to Far!

Someone has created a hand warming mouse pad in case your hand gets cold while computing. The new Futon mouse pad from Japanese manufacturer Thanko plugs in via a USB port and offers a wrist pillow for support.

The mouse pad warmer even has a cover in case you don't need the heat but want a blanket for your hand. (Seriously?)

Be careful though, the hand warming mouse pad can reach temperatures of 122 degrees. Maybe this is so you can fry yourself an egg after an all night session at the keyboard.

Thanko also offers products such as a USB seat warmer, a USB Razor as well as a full size USB keyboard that can fold up and fit in your pocket.

To see a photo of the $25 Futon mouse pad visit Gizmag.com or you can try the Thanko Company English website www.raremonoshop.com which was unavailable whenever I tried to reach it.

Revo Uninstaller

This little gem is the best program uninstaller I have used to date. Have you ever uninstalled a program from your PC and found remnants of the program you removed for months afterwards? Revo Uninstaller solves this problem. It handles the basic uninstall then does an in depth scan to detect leftover folders and files and asks if you would like them removed.

Other cleanup tools are available and it even cleans up left over registry entries. You have full control over what is removed when a program is uninstalled.

Revo Uninstaller is available as a free or paid professional version.
