SEO is a really trendy topic. It’s also a topic that is misunderstood. I think this has to do with how the search engines are constantly refining their search algorithms for increased performance and relevancy but also to thwart black-hat SEO spammers.
I come across a lot of really good articles while researching SEO and thought I would share them with you. I will revise this post over time as I gather more SEO information. Feel free to post anything you come across as well!
pChart is a PHP class oriented framework designed to create aliased charts. Most of today’s chart libraries have a cost, our project is intended to be free. Data can be retrieved from SQL queries, CSV files, or manually provided.
Focus has been put on rendering quality introducing an aliasing algorithm to draw eye candy graphics. In fact, quality is slowing down the renderer engine… this is one of our way of improvement!
The first purpose of pChart was to provide an easy interface for drawing anti-aliased pictures using the GD library. Then alpha-transparency and shadow supports have been integrated in addition to all the primitive functions to draw basic shapes. pChart can be used as a high level drawing library if you only need to create shapes & text composed pictures.

Google Trends is a tool from Google Labs that shows the most popularly searched terms based on one or more keywords from the beginning of 2004 to now.

With Google Trends, you can compare the world’s interest in your favorite topics. Enter up to five topics and see how often they’ve been searched on Google over time. Google Trends also shows how frequently your topics have appeared in Google News stories, and in which geographic regions people have searched for them most.
This is an excellent tool to add to your SEO arsenal.
