The current Secret Net Tools are:

The Rankulator lets you query the major search engines with the 7 permutations of 3 keywords, and tells you on what page your page appears. It also tells you the URLs of the best pages, so you can learn from the ranking masters.

The Multisubmitter lets you quickly and automatically submit multiple URLs (dozens if you want!) to all the major search engines.

The Keyword Susser queries's search terms tool and makes it easy to find out exactly what keywords you really want to be targeting on your pages and in your Meta Tags.

And if you are advertising on, the Search Terms Report will save you hours of work tracking your bids. I've also created a Search Terms Generator that can quickly generate large lists of search terms to bid on.

The Domain Name Sniffer makes it easy to search for great domain names for your site.

The Espionage tool lets you look at a web-page the way the search engines do. It's great for learning the tricks of getting better rankings.

The Link Finder queries the search engines and tells you what sites are linked to your site.

The HTML PrettyPrinter shows you the logical structure of your pages, and helps diagnose those pesky table errors!

The View HTML tool is like your browser's view command, but it also shows you the HTTP headers.

The Keyword Diffuser generates many different sets of META keywords tag, one for each of your pages. Each META tag has a different subset of your keywords in different orders; the idea is to maximize the chance that one of your pages will rank well for a query.

Finally, the License Pl8 Genr8tor is a fun little tool that will take just about any phrase and attempt to make a vanity license plate out of it!
