Learning search engine optimization can take years of study and consistent follow ups on tech news, top SEO blogs and search engine webmaster guide updates. Some with even 5 years of SEO experience still considers themselves as not being an expert in this field. It is fast changing environment where one needs to continuously update their knowledge and skills to provide trustable service or contest. Probably, that is why most SEO analysis will cost four figure bills. It is expensive for new website owners who are interested in improving their SEO score for the site. There are a lot of free tools available online to give free SEO analysis. Today, we are going to explore the good and bad sides of WebSEOAnalytics tool.
First hand information starts with domain information providing details like domain level back links, home page rank, server IP, hosting country and domain age. Following domain info is the indexing figures. It will show the first index date of the site in Achieve.org index. It will check DMOZ and Yahoo Paid Directory indexes as well. Total indexed pages shown in top three search engines (Google, Yahoo and Bing). Whois record containing details like domain registrar, nameservers (can find hosting company), last updated date with domain extension or whois record, creation date and expiration date. Robots txt file content also shared here.
Traffic analysis is mainly showing Alexa ranking charts from daily traffic, daily reach, daily page views, daily page views per user, bounce rate, time on site and search visits. All these info showed derived from Alexa ranking. When it comes to traffic analysis, I would strong suggest using other methods like Quantcast, Compete or SEMRush to get much precise information. Although, they still provide Compete ranking number but it is still not sufficient. I would prefer to see the graphs from Compete ranking as well. They also provide estimated number of visits during October 2010. I believe they try to show quarterly traffic and I have no idea where they pull that figure.
Page analysis is a little unique compared to other SEO analysis tools where we get information like usage of canonical tags on domain with www or without www. The language confidence figure shows that it is easily readable and can reach larger crowd. It is also showing links nofollowed in meta-robots, blocked by meta-robots or blocked by robots.txt. Top 3 search engine indexing will also be shown here. It will be good if they could add more search engines or local TLD in Google. Reputation measured from number of tweets, Facebook mentions and Google blog search results. Bookmarks from Delicious, Digg and Stumbleupon also declared here.
We can find top 1,000 back links and total number of back links in count to build similar backlinks. W3C HTML validation checked with counts of errors and warnings displayed too. Character used in Title, Description and Keyword length also shared here. We can measure meta spamming using this numbers. The relevancy of Title, Description and keywords shown in percentage to give better guidance in selecting appropriate meta tags. All H1-H6 heading tags and keywords used will be displayed too. This could be the one of the best keyword analysis report where possible spamming is detected from one to five word keyword phrases stripped and analyzed. Tag cloud view of more than hundreds of keywords gives clear view of the most and least targeted keyword in a website which is also another unique representation. We also get a view of how search engine spider views our site.
Finally, diagnostics detail will show number of errors found in our website. Number of warnings also shared here. A brief summary of a domain given in the info table consisting total number of words, keywords, optimized keywords, possible spam keywords in the main page. We can also get the size of page.
