- Flickr – to search for Creative Commons Licensed images to use on blog posts
- WordPress.org Codex – to search for code snippets, functions and template tags
- WordPress forum – to look up solutions to problems
- Youtube – to find videos that I can blog about or add to my site/resources etc
- Internet marketing forums – to see what people are saying about a topic I want to write about and question they are asking
Each one of those web sites have their very own search feature so what is the problem? No problem. I just like to cut out a few steps and clicks if possible because some of these sites especially WordPress, I search several times a day. Bookmarking and navigating to these sites take time.
So, I installed this cool little Firefox plugin called Add to Search Bar. This lets me add the search function for any web site to my Firefox Search Bar. Which means less looking up for a web site in the overloaded bookmarks folder and less clicking to get to the right page to search.
