Nickel Sale Script
I finally got to play with the Nickel Sale Script. I found some very cool things. First off, you can set the starting price to any price you want. Then you can have in go up .05 every sale OR you can have it go up any increment you want (so you could have a quarter sale). It does some great things by hiding the download link, and much more. When I bought it, it was a little over 10 bucks. I think its around 18 now. I did have some issues with the installation (no doubt a typo on my side) but their tech support has been VERY responsive so I'm sure I'll be up and running in no time.

Multiple IPN Paypal
The only “down side” to the Nickel Script was it uses (by default) the Paypal IPN feature (which verifies a sale before sending the visitor to the download). You can only have one IPN per PayPal account ) or so I thought. I found two scrips one at multipleipn.com and multiple-ipn.com The first one has a great looking site (but no contact information), and the second one (with the dash) has quite an ugle site, but they have contact information. These work on the basis that you can have 8 emails assigned to one paypal account. The script uses each email address to run a separate IPN script. Pretty cool and both are at 19.99

Search Engine Optimization an Hour a Day (Second Edition)
by Jennifer Grappone and Gradiva Couzin
This new edition has some social networking built into it. In reading the reviews, it seems like the author has you downloading some items from her website (worksheets) which should help keep the information current, but the reviewers who didn't like the book said they didn't like the organization of the topics, and apparently she is another person who is pushing wordtracker.com
Have You Played with Google Ad Manager?
You can check it out at https://www.google.com/admanager/login/en_US/index.html Publishers place the Ad Manager code on their sites, which then tracks page views and click-throughs to provide statistics on each ad unit. Ads tracked can include graphical, text and video. Ads can even be geo-targeted by examining the visitor's IP address. The service supports other ad networks as well. It's free to use, but Google will get a piece of the action by providing AdSense ads when a unit goes unsold or remnant space is available.
