For the last few months I've been working on SQuiD: A website that helps you get a better Google ranking through totally honest means. There's a lot of not so honest and even downright nefarious ways to try and increase page rank, but this site takes the high road and focuses on link building. Link building is way of taking a look at your competition and getting the places that promote them to promote you -- by asking nicely. This may seem naive but it works, builds your reputation, and doesn't leave inky black stains on your soul.

There's a lot to cover about how the site works so I've created my first ever screen casts and you can find them here:
SQuiD Tour Part 1
SQuiD Tour Part 2

I should warn you that we charge for using SQuiD so if paying money for goods and services isn't your thing then keep on walking, mister.

In the coming days and weeks I'll be blogging more about the technologies and processes we used to develop SQuiD (Teaser - we used Spreedly to process credit cards and it really saved us a lot of time and money).

Hey Jake,
This looks like a great start to a nice tool.

A small suggestion would be to add some scale to the bar graphs that come up in your bookmarklet.

I can see that I have 8 characters in a title and that is "yellow", but I'm not sure how much is good or will get me to "green."

Thanks,

Joe
