Tip of the Week back issues
Many readers have recently asked me how to access previous issues of
this newsletter. You can find all my back issues listed by more recent
issue at http://www.bookmarket.com/tipsindex.htm. Thanks for asking.
By the way, if you are not reading my Book Marketing Bestsellers blog, you
are missing some great timely tips. Check out my blog by clicking here:
Safari browser bug
Some of you who use Safari might have noticed extraneous html
characters floating around my sample welcome video. That happens due
to a bug in Safari. If Mac users use Mozilla Firefox, those extraneous
characters don't show. If anyone knows how I can work around that
bug in Safari, I'd much appreciate it.
Top Daily Newspapers, etc.
BurrellesLuce, a media monitoring company, is offering a free download
of the 2009 edition of their Top Daily Newspapers, Blogs, Consumer
Magazines, and Social Networks. The lists show the top 100 daily
newspapers, largest 25 consumer magazines, most popular 25 blogs,
and the top 25 U.S. social networks. You can download it free at:

tape the Internet TV show (which will then be broadcast live or
pre-taped. If you and your book fit these criteria, contact Ruth King,
chief evangelist, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org

Browser icon tip
Add a little pizazz to your website by creating an icon that shows up in
the browser tabs of people who visit your website.
If you'd like to create such browser icon, you can add the following
code in the header section of your HTML code for each page you want
the icon to appear. The header section is between <head> and </head>
in the HTML page code.
<link rel="icon" href="kremer.ico" type="image/x-icon">
You have to create a kremer.ico image file. I took one of my square
.jpg images and renamed it kremer.ico and made it 25 pixels wide. When
you create your image, you can give it any name you want to give --
e.g. yourname.ico. That .ico file must be uploaded to the root directory
of your website.
You can see the resulting icon I created for the home page of my main
website at http://www.bookmarket.com. I also used the same icon for
my http://www.tenmillioneyeballs.com website.
Note that the browser icon also shows up when you bookmark a page
with an icon link.
You can use any image as your icon, whether it's your face, your book
cover, your trademark, or any other image. I used book covers for my
http://www.celebratetoday.com and http://www.quotablebooks.com
Try to use a simple image. As you can see, book covers can make for
Note: I am not a technical support person. If you cannot implement
this icon image on your website, talk to your website designer or your
teenage child or neighbor. I cannot provide you with support on these
sort of technical issues. Sorry. It's not my business. But I did want to
share this little trick with you.
God made Truth with many doors to welcome every believer
who knocks on them. — Kahlil Gibran, poet and artist
