Posted by Mark Thompson - February 19, 2010 - SEO, Tools - 13 Comments

There are a number of SEO tools out there that will let you analyze a site for a number of different factors.  There are link analysis tools, competitive research tools, keyword analysis tools, domain info tools, social bookmarking tools, etc…

So instead of using a different tool, why not find a tool that will perform multiple functions with one click of a button.  Here is a list of complete website analysis tools that will analyze a number of factors that go into a well optimized website.

Website Grader

Probably the most popular and used website analysis tool out there, Website Grader analyzes a complete list of on-page and off-page factors.  Hubspot, the creators of Website Grader, also have other similar functioning tools.  They are Twitter Grader, Facebook Grader, Press Release Grader and GobbledygookGrader.

What’s Included in the Analysis:

  • Meta-Data Information
  • Pages Indexed Data
  • Link Data Information
  • Social Media Links
  • RSS/Conversion Forms

WooRank

WooRank is a relatively new website analysis tool, however it is very robust and ranks up there with Website Grader.  It offers all of the main data that you would want anlayzed, like met-data, link popularity, and traffic estimates, however a few neat features that it looks at are the server information and page loading time.  With Google placing more emphasis on load time, it is an imporant factor to have in a website analysis.

What’s Included in the Analysis:

  • Alexa Traffic Data
  • Variety of On-Page SEO Data
  • W3C Compliance Information
  • Link Popularity
  • Social Media Information
  • Directory Analysis

  • Usability Grade

LinkVooDoo

Not the most visually pleasure report, however it still returns a lot of great information.  At the top of the report they give you a site trustworthy percentage out of 100.  If you sign-up they will give you tips on how you can improve each section that they analyze.

What’s Included in the Analysis:

  • Alexa Ranking
  • Link Profile
  • Social Bookmarking Data
  • Domain Registration Information
  • Important Directory Information

Lipperhey

A very nicely designed analysis tool, they will give you some high level data and scores.  They provide a “technical” score, a “SEO score”, and a “popularity score” that will determine your overall score.  If you sign-up for an account you will receive a more in-depth report, that will look something like this.

What’s Included in the Analysis:

  • Overall Score
  • Pages Found
  • Incoming Links
  • Directory Information
  • Granular On-page Factors (on PDF report)

Piloun.com

Another website analysis tool that will give you a lot of the higher level information.  One thing I did like about this tool is the ability to see source code, JS and CSS file sizes. 

What’s Included in the Analysis:

  • Basic On-Page SEO
  • PageRank, Alexa, and Compete Rankings
  • Keyword Density/Word Count
  • Backlink Information
  • Indexed Pages

Search24Online

The SEO analysis tool is only one of their many suite of tools that they offer.  They also have tools for search engine rankings, keyword research, link popularity, broken link checker, url redirect checker, server status, http headers, and more.

What’s Included in the Analysis:

  • Domain and PageRank Information
  • Alexa Information
  • Technorati Information
  • Indexed Pages
  • Directory Listing

SEO Rush

SEO Rush has a real-time “previously SEOrushed Sites” that will show you sites that have been recently analyzed.  This tool will again give you a lot of the high level data.  The design and layout is very nice, however I think they could beef up the amount of data it returns.

What’s Included in the Analysis:

  • Pages Indexed
  • Social Resources
  • Domain and Meta Information
  • Compete, Alexa, Technorati, Quancast Ranks
  • Wikipedia Information

Pear Analytics

Pear Analytics offers a free and paid version of their SEO analysis tool.  The free version allows you to analyze 1 page, 1 competitor, 10 keywords, no client access, and 1 automated report a month.  Paid versions start at $39.99 and go up to $299.99 a month.

What’s Included in the Analysis:

  • Ranking Amongst Others Who Have Analyzed Their Sites
  • Site Scoring (Sitemaps, Domain Age, Site Rankings)
  • Page Scoring (Links, Site Stucture)
  • SEO Value
  • Keyword Monitoring

SpyderMate

SpyderMate gives you an overall score out of 100, based on a number of factors that their tool analyzes.  If you register for Spydermate you can take advantage of their competitor comparison feature.  A few neat features that I liked are the Export to PDF and Share with Someone abilities.

What’s Included in the Analysis:

  • Tag and Attribute Use
  • HTTP Status
  • Broken Link Checker
  • PageRank and Alexa Rank
  • Backlink Information
  • Domain Information
  • Link Equity

SEO Workers

Although this tool analyzes a lot of factors, much of the data is in its raw form and is not necessarily pleasing to the eye.  However another good choice if you are looking to receive a lot of data about a site with the click of a button.

What’s Included in the Analysis:

  • Keyword Research
  • Keyword Density
  • Meta Information
  • Header Information
