If you're not taking advantage of iGoogle and Wikipedia, you’re missing out on two of the best sites on the web, says tech guru James Spellos.

iGoogle ( is Google’s personalized news-gathering site. The top of the page is the true-blue search engine; below it are continually updated feeds or sections that you select, such as CNN headlines, Google News, to-do lists.

“It’s like having a customized newspaper on your desktop each day,” says Spellos. “It’s an incredible way to see exactly what you want and not spend 23 hours a day on the Internet.”

Next to Google, Spellos said, Wikipedia is “my go-to web site.” The online encyclopedia ( has more than 2 million entries that are constantly updated by its users. The site often tracks news as it’s happening.

If your company isn’t already listed in Wikipedia, he says, look into listing it. Why? The listing may increase its chances of coming up in web searches.
