Website Review Tools

Website Grader from HubSpot

Website Grader is one of my favorite tools because of how helpful and usable it is. You’ll get a lengthy report broken into various sections with an evaluation of the page and recommended changes. While the grade is helpful to know where you stand, the suggestions are more valuable because they help you to identify areas for improvement, and many of them can be pretty simple.

Trifecta from SEOmoz

Quite a unique tool, Trifecta will analyze a page, a blog, or an entire domain based on slightly different criteria. Trifecta will produce numbers based on a variety of factors and it will give you an overall score. Without a pro membership you’re limited to one report per day.

Spider Simulator from Summit Media

This tool will give you a good idea of how search friendly you site is, and it will also give you a percentage rating. It bases the rating on factors like meta tags, use of headers, images and alt tags, load time, and links.

Web Page Analyzer from WebsiteOptimization.com

This free tool will give you plenty of information to work with. It will test how long the page takes to load, how many objects are on the page, the size of the objects and more. The most helpful part of the report that is produced is the “Analysis and Recommendations” section where it will list 11 aspects of the page and give you a rating. Red items are warnings, yellow items are cautions, and green items are good.
