Techmith’s Snagit: Now that Windows “Snippit” has improved, you may decide you don’t need Snagit, but I prefer it’s ease of use and ability to save and send and edit.

A $25,000 book! The key point I learned from this book is for a person like myself. I decided to wait until age 70 to maximize my monthly benefit, but I lost over $20,000 for my wife by not applying, getting, and suspending, benefits. Had I done so, her benefits as a spouse, which have not benefitted by waiting, would have begun 18 months earlier. By having her apply, she at least got 10 months of back due benefits. This book is worth its $20 price on Amazon.com.

SEO, as deep as you want to go:

I paste the following comments sent to me by our son John to whom I reached out for some resources. More than most of you will ever use, but deep information for those who care to use it.

This is essential for “experts” and developers

Very broad and in depth

https://developers.google.com/products/

This is more digestible information for the non developer.

https://developers.google.com/web/fundamentals/principles/

Good summaries of SEO Algorithm Factors

Great social media and marketing site.  Also has a great podcast that covers a wide range of topics.

Great Site for monitoring your local presence on local directories.

More in depth local directory monitoring tool.  Be more cautious with this one as they request a phone number and are more aggressive with marketing the “enhanced services”.

YEXT: My son John advises:

“More in depth local directory monitoring tool.  Be more cautious with this one as they request a phone number and are more aggressive with marketing the ‘enhanced services’.

This is the one I have just subscribed to for two years. It starts with a 45 minutes training session. You fill out YEXT’s master form and it checks the sites you have already claimed and conforms your information, and then it synchs your master form to the remaining of 60 sites.
