    Google continues to help the digital marketer not just by offering tools and platforms for campaigns (e.g. Google Analytics, Google AdWords, Google AdSense), but also by sharing most valuable findings, insights, and collective experiences. A treasure trove of customer behavior data.

    The internet giant (re)launches Think Insights, an online destination created as a hub for marketing trends “real time” intended to strengthen the marriage of advertising and web.

    This month’s Cool Tool of the Month is a simple site called Placehold.it created for web designers with one simple purpose: to create pixel perfect placeholder graphics used in site wireframes and layouts.

    To generate a placeholder graphic, simply enter the width and height of the placeholder after the site’s URL in the address bar. For example:

    http://placehold.it/600×480

    By default the placeholder is gray, but you can change this by specifying the hex value of a color (without the hashtag). As in:

    http://placehold.it/600×480/000033

    You can also change the text and specific that graphic format (e.g. gif, png, or jpeg).

    If your site is online for client review, you can actually use the Placehold.it URL in your code. Such as:

    <img src=”http://placehold.it/600×480/000033″>

    That’s it. So simple it might fit the meme single serving site (close but not quite). You’re the man now dog!
