More Tools to Attract (and keep) Visitors

By Mark Idzik

Since writing about these last month, I've found more tools (mostly free!) you can add to your web site to keep your visitors coming back. Actually, this may become a regular article since attracting and keeping visitors becomes harder as the web grows.


According to recent reports, the next big trend on the web is "remote file storage". I tend to agree. If you travel between computers and locations, and need to have access to your files, lugging around zip disks and diskettes can get very tiring.

i-FileZone is a new service that offers 10MB of disk space for all your files, accessible from any web browser, stored and encrypted, and best of all it's FREE!

If you have a commercial web site and want to offer this great service as a benefit to visitors at no cost to you or the visitor, visit the site and become a partner. We've just added i-FileZone to our HelpTalk Online site and are encouraged by our early responses.

i-FileZone also offers a "bounty" for each new account established. It's a win-win service - offer a free service to your visitors and get paid!

Free Translation

Since the web reaches almost every corner of our world, translating web sites, email or phrases into another language may offer your visitors a great benefit. is a revolutionary new service that translates on-the-fly, and is surprisingly accurate. Most services until now have translated word-for-word, where uses machine translation, by analyzing sentences based on the rules of the language and translates the words and phrases in the context of the original document.

The site offers methods to link to the translation page, and also a way to add the service to your page without losing your visitor. For more information visit:

Why not offer a new positive, uplifting message to your visitors everyday? Ralph Marston provides this service to give webmasters new content that changes daily (6 times a week - no need to change links on your site, the quote image updates automatically) and provides exposure for his site as well.

Why not add up-to-the minute weather forecasts to your site? Not a link, but an actual software application that allows you to serve up customized weather forecasts for your visitors directly from your site.

HamWeather is a perl script that you install on your server, and allows you to customize any way you'd like. Plug in the results of the weather searches into your current pages and you have a great service for your visitors. This application seems straightforward to install and is also free.
