I had reviewed one of Eighs earlier books on making Tofu, and I got an email for this one when it came out for free on Amazon.

So what does Tofu have to do with "bots?" In this case, the clarity of instruction and writing. The author stated his goal was "to make you feel like you could do it." He achieved his goal in my case. His careful, clear and detailed instructions were everything a non tech person wants to know.

While the book is focused on those doing the marketing, I was intrigued from the point of view of the one being marketed to, particularly as a top reviewer at Amazon. Ah, so THAT is how they scrape my info! Hmmm, could this author be using this tool, or that tool? Wait, you can do that?

He remains on the ethical side and never suggests you try these ideas in inappropriate ways. Still, he made me aware of many ways the tools could be misused.

IF you are reading his book to get some ideas for promoting yours to Amazon Reviewers, I have a tip concerning those emails. Statistically speaking, the higher up on the rankings an individual is, the more requests they get to review stuff. I personally get about three requests per day to read someone's book. Most are genres I would never read or review.

If you use your "good powers" to find readers using his technique, I suggest you do any of the following:

Find books similar to yours and scrape information on reviewers of those books
Be as personal as you can (even if it is a macro) in contacting reviewers.
NEVER EVER send an email out with multiple addresses. Very bad netiquette. I either blast the sender, or toss it in the trash. So do my friends.

Now, let's see if I can figure out a macro to finish my Christmas shopping online!

According to the author, the book is intended to describe the use of tools that can be used in your web marketing, particularly for marketing Amazon Kindle books. He calls the Amazon marketplace the "Amazon Jungle" - a place that's very mysterious, dangerous, and difficult to survive.

The book includes several tools for automating many processes using high tech tools. The first of these, "Live HTTP Headers," is a web conversation interceptor, a free Firefox add-on. That sounds complicated, but it's just a tool to observe your browser's "conversation" with a web server.

The next tool is another Firefox add-on called "iMacro" that lets you record, save, and playback macros that you create. (Didn't the early versions of Windows include a macro recorder?) This can be used to automate many tasks. Another automated marketing tool is "uBot," which may enable your scripts to sneak past CAPTCHA gatekeepers.

"Jingling" software may be the most powerful bot traffic generator for increasing page counts at sites such as eBay and YouTube. It's in Chinese, but the book walks you through using it.

Two comments about the book:
1. It's fairly technical, but the author explains every step with illustrations and commentary.
2. There are ethical issues involved (such as sending bots to vote hundreds of times for your book or photograph in a competition), but to his credit, the author acknowledges this and discusses the issues.

It's a very informative book with a boatload of information for anyone interested in automating some computer tasks.

Marcus Eigh writes about so many topics so well that it seemed to this reader that if his other books about health and nutrition etc as so well presented, why not try one that seems like a foreign language and see if it opens any doors.

First a bit of introduction for the very word `bot' (because I had no clue): `Web Bot is an Internet Bot computer program whose developers claim is able to predict future events by tracking keywords entered on the internet. It was developed in 1997, originally to predict stock market trends. The creator of the Web Bot Project, Clif High, along with his associate George Ure, keep the technology and algorithms largely secret and sell the predictions via the website. An Internet bot, also known as web robot, WWW robot or simply bot, is a software application that runs automated tasks over the Internet. Typically, bots perform tasks that are both simple and structurally repetitive, at a much higher rate than would be possible for a human alone. The largest use of bots is in web spidering, in which an automated script fetches, analyses and files information from web servers at many times the speed of a human. Each server can have a file called robots.txt, containing rules for the spidering of that server that the bot is supposed to obey or be removed. In addition to their uses outlined above, bots may also be implemented where a response speed faster than that of humans is required (e.g., gaming bots and auction-site robots) or less commonly in situations where the emulation of human activity is required, for example chat bots. Bots are also being used as organization and content access applications for media delivery. Webot.com is one recent example of utilizing bots to deliver personal media across the web from multiple sources.
