Store Locator 1.3.5 Released

Joom!Fish Support now Included with the Joomla Store LocatorSysgen Media is proud to present the latest iteration of our Store Locator product for Joomla! 1.5. With this release the major addition is automatic support for Joom!Fish 2.0. This should round out our product to cater to the International Community which seems to be a large portion of our customer base. Now you can use the Joomla Language files for static text and Joom!Fish for all your database entries thus your entire installation is customizable.

The Store Locator 1.3.5 Installer will automatically install the necessary Joom!Fish content element files upon detection of a Joom!Fish installation. If you install Joom!fish after you have already installed the Store Locator you can simply reinstall the Store Locator or you can use the content element installer we provided for Joom!Fish as a separate download from our site.

We also updated the JavaScript system to be faster and no longer prints out ugly JavaScript in your code. All scripts are now included in a separate generated file.

SEOFeast

I’m not really sure how I stumbled across this wonderful, simple tool, but SEOFeast (seofeast.com) has been an incredible resource to me in the last few days. It a website that packs a whole lot of functionality into it’s single page, yet remains lightweight, well-designed, and uncluttered.

The page is essentially just a tool to check out information related to SEO about any website with just a few clicks. Simply type in the domain you want info on, and select any of the various types of information you want. Some examples of what is available are: Yahoo! Incoming links, Google Incoming Links, Google Pagerank, Domain Age, and Whois info. Interestingly, they also have tools that will validate your html via W3C and your CSS.

Maybe one of the coolest features though, is that they’ll display a history of each statistic you request from them. For example, here is a screenshot, and an enlarged photo of a search of Yahoo! Incoming Links for SysgenMedia.com:

Overall, SEOFeast isn’t offering any new, groundbreaking tools… and it isn’t even offering any services that are difficult to find for free elsewhere. But what it does do is place all of these tools at your fingertips on a single page instead of making you track down the various pages where you would normally need to go to find all of this disparate info.

So, for all of us out there, I’d like to thank the guys over at SEOFeast for a job well done. Keep up the good work guys!
