On December 1st Google launched the countdown to 2009 by stating that they’ll offer a tip a day, to promote all the things that you can achieve through Google’s services:

We’ll cover everything from today’s tip on “Gift ideas and holiday savings” to checking out your flight status with Google Search.

Adwords Tool: Keyword Wrapper

13 10 2008

If you have a set of keywords, you’ll want them to be broad, phrase and exact (e.g. broad, “phrase” and [exact]) This could mean that if you have 100 keyword variations, you will have to type them out another 200 times in the other match varieties to have a wide-reaching keyword list.

However, rather than type a keyword out three times, this Adwords tool can save you hours of needless typing, by generating the wrapping for you…
