- Research Buzz has a tool to help you find recipes for the ingredients you have.
- You enter the ingredients in a search box and the site uses the terms in a special Google search. When you run the search you get taken to a Google search results page for recipes with those ingredients.
- For example, click here to see recipes that use ‘Chicken, wine, tomato’.

Get some free traffic to your blog / web site (through a site called ‘ipings’.) All you do is fill in 4 boxes on a form (name, URL etc), and click submit. When you do, a bunch of sites get notified that you have new content for them to come and index. Its a dead easy way to increase traffic to your web site / blog.
**WARNING! – you should only use the service when you add new content to your site. Pinging without having new content “probably will get you banned or ignored”!!
If you want to know about how the site works and what happens when you ‘ping’, check out the ‘about‘ and ‘to ping or not to ping‘ pages. Well worth reading IMHO – there are good explanations of how web spiders work and how pinging can help you get listed on major search engines!
