Over the process of redesigning AoG Design, I found a few helpful guides and tools that might be useful to others:
- SEO Domain Whois Tool - Gives you an SEO score, show keywords your site has, missing alt tags, etc.
- Crazy Egg Analytics - has nice visualization options for web traffic, including a cool heatmap.
- Icon Drawer - amazing icons which inspired me to make a few custom ones for AoG Design.
- Expression Engine - a really cool PHP CMS that I might use in the future to redo all of my sites.
- Redesigning the ExpressionEngine Site - an article written by the guy who designed the Code Igniter and Expression Engine sites, really interesting read
- PageRank Guide
- Mountain Dew Game Fuel - Surprisingly tasty Mountain Dew (I usually don't like the stuff) that helped me stay up till 7:30am working on the site the first night
- Lorum Ipsum Generator - let's you create random filler text without typing "fjdkafjkfldja" over and over again. As a bonus, the text even looks cool
