Happy Birthday: interactivetools Turns Six

On January 28th we celebrated our 6th year of being in business. It was six years ago when interactivetools started out doing custom programming, providing clients with built-to-order web programs.

Soon we started making web software with the launch of Realty Manager 1.0. This helped pave the way for what interactivetools.com would strive for - to create world-class web software. Web developers could use our software to provide their non-technical clients with an easy-to-use system for managing their website, and at the same time save a lot of money over custom built applications.

To make our software stand out from the crowd, we coupled our products with exceptional after sales services almost unheard of at the time. This meant providing with each license a free installation, lifetime free support, free upgrades, and a 90-day money back guarantee.

I've been here for most of these six years, and while so much has happened since then it just seems like yesterday. Happy Birthday interactivetools.com, and here's to many more! :)

Please feel free to read the entire interactivetools.com story.


Firefox Plug-in for Google and Alexa Rankings

If you're a webmaster or web developer (or work with websites in one form or another) you probably spend time advertising your site and submitting it to search engines. You'll likely want to know things like page rankings for your site and others.

Good news - Quirk, a company specializing in eMarketing services, recently released a free Mozilla Firefox plug-in to help aid search engine marketers. The plug-in, named SearchStatus, lets you view the Google PageRank and Alexa popularity ranking of the page you're visiting. It can also provide users with the sites Google Category, the number of Alexa incoming and related links, and backward links from Google, Yahoo! and MSN.

You can download the plug-in for free at Quirk or download Mozilla Firefox for free.


interactivetools Featured in Web Design Book

We're honoured to have recently been featured in a book on web design. John Heartfield, an international consultant specializing in web design, authored "Make Your Small Business Website Work: Easy Answers to Content, Navigation, and Design".

The book is packed with interesting tips and suggestions. As the title suggests, the main focus is website navigation and content creation. It features several websites (including interactivetools.com) as case studies, giving examples of good versus bad navigation. Thankfully the interactivetools.com site was used as a good example! :)

If you're interested in picking up the book for yourself, it's available at Amazon.com.
