The Tools and Resources listed here are very useful, but not directly related to Internet/Affiliate Marketing or Search Engine Marketing/Optimization (SEM/SEO).

The Tools and Resources range from Anti SPAM (Email), Search Engine Alerts, Comparison Tools and Guides to things like a To-Do List Tool and Online Encyclopedia.

I hope that you will find the tools listed below as helpful as I do. I still use or used in the past all of those Tools or Resources myself, which is the reason why I list them here and recommend them to you.
