Yes, I know that this issue of Boomer eZine is late. I apologize, but I spent last week working super hard at my day job so Linda and I could leave on Thursday for a short vacation to the Texas Hill Country.
We met friends there that we get together with twice a year. We floated the Guadalupe River on Saturday and Sunday. If you have never floated a river, it consists of lying in an inner tube and floating down the river with your friends while you visit and get caught up on what has happened since you last were together. One person is in charge of the “beer tube” which carries the ice chest with liquid refreshment.
This is about the most relaxing past time that I know.
With that explanation, you can see why I have not knocked myself out trying to get this issue published right on the deadline.

I sent information about Google changing it keyword tool in my mid-month reminder email, but I want to revisit the subject here.
Here is a picture of the tool with the results of the keyword “retirement”. The Advertiser Competition is still shown in the green bar graph format, but the current monthly search volume and the average search volume are shown in approximate numbers.
This is very helpful when you are trying to determine if there is enough (or too much) traffic for a particular keyword. You need enough traffic to support your website, but if the keyword is too popular, you will have a difficult time ranking high for the keyword in the search engines.

Have you thought about writing a book about something that you really like? You think, “I want to write that book, but I just don’t know how to do it.” Well, now you can get the help you need.
Ken Evoy wrote a book to help people write ebooks called “Make your Knowledge Sell”. He charged $49.95 for this book for many years, but now he has dropped the price of it ZERO. That’s right. It’s free.
Go to the Site Build It site and read about the book. You can download it if you feel that it can help you write that book you have dreamed of writing.
I heard about the new financial advice book SPEND til THE END by Laurence Kotlikoff and Scott Burns when I was studying retirement calculators so I decided to buy it.
I received it from Amazon and started reading it. I was impressed with it and thought I that as an Amazon affiliate could sell it on the Internet .
I checked the domain names and spendtiltheend.com was purchased but it was not a developed site. Spend-til-the-end.com was available so I bought it. I have built the site on Hostmonster.com as another non-SBI site. I am not using Site Build It for this site since it is a niche site with limited income potential and probably will have a short life during the popularity of the book. SBI is too expensive for this site.
As I write this issue, for the keyword “spend til the end”, the site is ranked number four on Google, number one on Yahoo, and number one on MSN/Live.
The goal of this site is to interest readers in the book and then direct them to the purchase page on Amazon.
Remember that being an entrepreneur is recognizing an opportunity and then taking action to take advantage of the opportunity.
That wraps up this issue. Until next month, stay tuned.
