    First I'd like to say it's a great idea to generate revenue for iNet! Which really is not a bad thing. Many, really might buy it. Many corporations, i.e. the big million dollar guys, that is.

    My question, which though I don't plan on buying it just yet, I'm sure others have as well. This "feature" that alerts you of keywords. How is it different than the free Google Alert tool?

    Also, does the corporate membership offer give you the extra PM space and forum access as premium membership?

    Google Alerts isn't configurable to restrict alerts generated from WHT.

    I might also add that you might want to put a link under "Home/Forum" up top labeled "Premium/Corporate Membership" where you would highlight each membership.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Google alert tool only reports a keyword when it appears in Google search results. While our pages are indexed pretty quickly, there's still some lag there. The Corporate alert tool can be configured to report an occurrence of a keyword the instant it's posted. This allows companies to get in on a thread when it's fresh instead of page 4 or 5 when Google gets a hold of it.

    Yeah that's probably a good idea.

    We already have an "Upgrade Your Membership" link in the header. I'd love for that to link to a page that compares Premium/Corporate memberships. Thanks for reminding me of that.. I'll have to talk to Dennis/Aaron.

    I signed up because of the keywords feature. I have to say it has been very nicely done. Excellent tool.

    I would however like to add more keywords.. Maybe 20?

    Perhaps the demo video on the explanation page should have "monthly" spelled correctly?

    It's just a tad out of reach in terms of price for me. Perhaps I'd consider it later on.

    I think even with the ad discounts that's going to be reaching, but we'll see.

    Maybe iNet should really consider something like an "ad sponsor" membership for those that actually used the ad discounts, and make it worthwhile ?
