A critical component of any web redesign project is Search Engine Optimization (SEO). I guess before I go any further, it might be helpful for some to define SEO. SEO, according to Wikipedia is “the process of improving the volume and quality of traffic to a web site from search engines via natural search results.”
I started looking around for a writer that had the SEO background who would be able to rewrite our content to include the missing SEO aspect. Through some calls and networking (gotta love networking!), I was directed to Anduro Marketing. I talked with Matt and had a great discussion about SEO and keyword strategy. As a result of the discussion, I was shown a great web tool to assist with SEO.
This brings me to the point of this post. Anduro Marketing has developed a free web-based tool called seobrowser.com. This tools display your website, as Google (or other search engines) would see it. Not only that, but if you click the ‘Advanced’ link in the top right of the page, you get a plethora of information. The information you can get is:
- Google PageRank
- Page load time
- Page size (kb)
- # of words
- # of images (with and without ALT tags)
- # of links (external and internal)
- and much more
I’m very excited to have come across this web tool and my thanks goes out to Matt from Anduro Marketing.
If you’ve found any other similar tools to this one, please let me know.
