If you're looking for alternative keyword research tools, check out Keyword Discovery from Trellian. It lists keywords that drive traffic to web sites based on their DMOZ site category classification.
Speaking of keyword research, Gavin Appel, VP of Search for Hitwise was kind enough recently to provide a demo and walkthrough of their new Keyword Intelligence product. I will be posting a review/article from that interview later this week.

Danny Sullivan has launched a blog for the Search Engine Strategies Conference. (hat tip Aaron)
There have been 30 shows so far and the conference is now going into its seventh year. Here's a great post about the history of SES. I think it's pretty impressive what Danny and friends have made this show to be.
The next Search Engine Strategies conference is next month August 8 - 11 in San Jose - the heart of Silicon Valley. I've been to the San Jose and New York SES shows and San Jose is definitely my favorite. Yahoo and Google tend to do a lot of promotion there and it's great to be at a conference where plenty of people "speak SEO".
If you'll be attending the San Jose SES show, drop me a line: blog at toprankresults dot com. It's great to meet new people in the business.
I will be covering this SES show as a member of the press for several articles I'm writing for a business publication. Time allowing, I plan on conducting several other interviews as well. I am most curious about companies offering tools/services for search optimization, blogging and of course, the search engines themselves.
