The Internet has become a huge hodge podge of information, entertainment, products and services; but this does not mean one size fits all.

Taking this into account, I have prepared a pretty short list of alternative and, fortunately, still fairly unknown free tools for website owners. They will give you the results you are looking for without a lot of bells and whistles. They're just awesome.

1. Get free advertising on Backpage.com

Backpage is, from this list, quite likely the most popular service. Being perhaps the best alternative to CraigsList in the United States, it allows you to post classified ads for your products and services without the sometimes annoying extra steps a CraigsList account forces you to do. I really like to use it.

2. Get free banner advertising on Clickbrokers.com

Click Brokers resurrects a late 1990s concept with a plus that sounds really enticing: They are probably the only banner exchange network which doesn't force you into an uneven impressions exchange rate in their favor. They offer you the possibility of a better than 1:1 exchange rate if you reach a successful click through rate of 1%.

3. Sell on Facebook with Payvment.com

Facebook is a big site, and a huge opportunity; but developing a Facebook application needs programmers and designers. Small or home-based business owners like you and me, who do not want or need something extremely technical, can use Payvment as an alternative and sell through Facebook.

4. Sell on your site with Ecwid.com

These guys have a wonderful service which allows you to set up an online store for as cheap as $17 a month, but they have a free option too for those interested in selling less than 100 items. Sales options include physical products and downloadable items. It's worth giving a try.

5. Get timely statistics with Hit-Meter.com

To close this list, if you are one of the gang who thinks that Google Analytics is overrated, or it slows down your site, I think you will like Hit-Meter as an alternative. The service is not exactly eye-candy, but it does the job remarkably well. You don't need to wait a few hours for the latest report, it is immediate. Also, you don't need to include a script in your website, the non-script option is enough for getting results. Hit-Meter really left me impressed, I do recommend it.

Well, there you have the five tools. If they are as good for you as they were for me, great. If you think any other service is worth taking a look. Let me know in the comments!
