Ok, I realize that most if not all SEO’s know about the below mentioned tool but I wanted to let everyone know about it. This is a neat tool to prove that Google and Yahoo have completely different ranking tools. This was first brought to my attention by Debra Mastaler during a phone conference and I found it very interesting and useful in many ways.
If you go to Google vs Yahoo it pops up with a preset keyword search. Enter in any keyword(s) that you want to compare, click compare them. It’s as easy as that. You can see the top sites that pop up for your keyword(s) by putting your mouse over the dots. The graph shows you how different Google and Yahoo are for your entered keyword(s).
I’ll also use this site for quality URL link possibilities. I type in all the keywords that I have found through other resources and enter them in my excel sheet. I can get about 200 useful sites in about an hour. At that point I can look over the sites found, enter in the rest of my info needed for my excel sheet and send off my specific requests to those sites.

This is a very useful tool that was brought to my attention by Stoney deGeyter. It goes over four key ranking subjects and asks linking experts how they would rank those for importance.
