    I know there have been a few topics about Evernote and how to keep organize. We, Internet Marketers usually read alot daily and store quite a bit of notes on the side.

    I started using Evernote awhile ago, and I love it. However, I recently have some issues with their web clipper plugin and was wondering if there are any other alternatives.

    I dont mind storing my info/research online (cloud) and actually prefer it.

    So what do you guys use? Any feedback on Google Docs? Do they have something similar to Evernote's webclipper?

    Google docs is ok but it's not perfected yet in my opinion. I don't like it because they don't really have a proper file system, it's more like a categorised list of docs, if that makes sense?

    Havnt used evernote. At the moment I am using live drive - it's the best thing iv found anyway so far.

    It's an online drive that makes a proper mapped drive in my computer. I sync the docs to the map on all my computers so I'm using the same file system wherever I go. Then I can properly organise everything - spreadsheets for my hosting, domains, client folder, tutorials folder, notes etc:)

    Ditto, Evernote is probably my most used tool.

    You could try Instapaper as an alternative. Or Dropbox (can create word files as notes and save in the folder). Evernote is my personal favorite though.

    I personally use Google Docs. Evernote always seems very confusing to use when comparing it side by side with the big G.

    And with the semi-recent facelift Google planted on Google Docs, I am infatuated with the minimalism.

    So for me... Google Docs all the way :)

    Hope this was helpful!

    For me, a combination of Instapaper and Evernote has been the best solution for organization.

    I often come across stuff on the web or in Google Reader that I think "might" be useful or interesting but I don't have time at the moment to really get into, and I also like to save stuff that I do skim through quickly for a deeper reading at a later date.

    Saving that kind of stuff to Evernote would be a waste of the resources they alot you, so I put everything into Instapaper first, then every couple days I go through my Instapaper items and anything that has long-term value for me I'll clip to Evernote at that point, and everything else I'll just read and delete or archive with Instapaper if I think I might want to browse it again someday.

    I used to use Google Notes, but they quit that service. In my opinion it was more organized than G Docs is even now, shame they shut it down.

    For the OP who was looking for solutions, I honestly don't think there's anything better or even close to Evernote at this point out there. I'd suggest completely reinstalling it, after first uninstalling it from your system (including manually making sure the browser add-on files are deleted from your browser profile folder), and see if that doesn't fix your trouble with the plugin.

    I prefer Evernote, especially when combined with the organization system of GTD. It's very effective.
