Kahula Web Tools: Service Manual

The Kahula Web Tools page should reveal the hidden secrets of websites: your own or others. A real cognitive artifact. While simple in concept the Kahula project allows you to group divergent websites together and pilot them from one page.

Please mail me any tools you think should be added to the page. This silly javascript can of course be freely reproduced, distributed and modified (add other search sites, add new features, and keep the links up to date). It copies very well onto a floppy disk or diskette.

Here is a small explanation of how the kahula process works.
Raphael,Heiss Ltd : Quality hand made HTML since 1995

Troubleshooting & FAQ:

1. I don't see anything happening? Make sure your browser has enabled javascript to run.

2. Only one window opens? Toolbars like google's often come with popup blockers. Try holding
down the control key while you activate Webtools or the Wordelizer.

3. Some sites can not handle special characters like the "~" replace this one with %7E.
Look at the sample to see other examples.

Stephanie West Allen suggested the validator which will analyse some your coding automatically. (They seem very interested that you write your code for the new versions of html). She's at Allen and Nichols Productions.

In the same vein here is another way to analyze automatically your page:

Overture Search Term Suggestion Tools:

Choosing proper keywords can be difficult. Having the vocabulary of your subject matter can help classify your page although keywords are not as popular as they once were.


& google's adwords and suggestiions:

How did you do that with those search engines?
Some google tricks: (which may or maynot work with other search engines):
Who links: type "link:" before the address (url) that you search in google.
Similar sites: type "related:"before the address (url) that you search in google.
Definitions: type "define:" before the word you search in google
To search on a website: site:+ the domain name + the keywords example to search our school for chris type: "site:www.emse.fr chris"

Nobody links to my page? Not even your other pages? That's bad. Hey you can always try Kahula Deeplinks to check further.

How can I get search engines to notice me? Most search engines do a pretty good job of crawling around the web
but it can't hurt to hand submit to search engines and directories:
google yahoo dmoz scrubtheweb microsoftor you can do it with 7 at a time at: http://www.submitexpress.com/they claim 40 but a lot of the links are defunct.

Another way to get good press is to write it! I know it sounds silly but there are many sites that allow you to write a press release. Here are several
- http://www.prweb.com [this one has been around for several years]
- http://www.prbot.com
- http://www.openpress.com
- http://www.express-press-release.com
- http://www.free-press-release.com
- http://www.prleap.com
- http://www.prfree.com

An simple way to make your own link list is to search for a theme let's say SCIENCE.
Go to google and type: "add url science education" or "suggest a link + scientific"
pretty soon you'll have quite a group of sites that are interested in your subject
and permit you to upload links to your pages.

What is google's page rank? How can I find out what my pagerank is?
Everyone who has a website should install googles' toolbar. First if you click on page rank the toolbar will give you a page score
of the page that you are on. See illustration below:
