I mostly use a grader it seems like about every 6 month just to see what it says. I rarely follow any of the recommendations, but it is interesting to see how my site grades over time. My recent post Commercial Remodeling Stain Project In Lansing

thnaks s true, SEO is a long term activity that also requires long patience and dedication. It's satisfying to have a high grade at website grader although it's kinda frustrating if not all your deeds are recognized by it. Keywords etc.. But I guess, the social media could be the next or now the place to build links that can easily go viral in right techniques and quality content.

I think most graders should be considered just for fun. Each of them likely has some different algorithm of some form. I doubt any of them are perfectly matched for google. Some of them can find things about your site that you missed, although most of the time not super important. Like missing image alt tags, and things like that. Another thing is it seems like there has been a lot of these graders popping up lately. I have no idea how many there are out there, but there has to be quite a few. I peek at a few of them every now and then, but do not spend a lot of time with them, nor do I really think of them as very reliable. My recent post 5 Tools to grade your website blog and accounts

I think the most important of all would be creating great content for your readers because they are actually what really matters. Probably after creating great content, you can then take website graders for your secondary consideration but they shouldn't catch much of your attention.

Those website graders are complete and utter garbage. I hate how people try and make their website as good as they possibly can for the GRADERS and not the PEOPLE who read their blogs! My recent post THE Number 1 Greatest Source For Content In Any Niche

Yep, off page SEO is vital if you want to maintain any kind of rankings - especially if your niche is competitive. If you aren't consistently working to get better you can bet one of your competitors is and they'll pass you up. I like SEMRush because they show you competitors main keywords that are driving traffic to their site, which can be handy sometimes. ~David Walker My recent post Why People Don’t Like “Free”

Great point Richard. But our big question is WHY can't there be an off-site SEO web grader? It seems that people think of a website grader as an onsite SEO tool. At HubShout, we are thinking that an off-site website grader might be helpful.

I think that for the most part, you want to concentrate on making sure your content is readable for people and not worry so much about the website graders. However, you can still concentrate on off-site seo. This way, you will still get seo benefits while ensuring that you have good content. My recent post Amazon Introduces the Lending Library

Agreed, When I initially started to learn and work on SEO then I too have used such website graders and they always told you that you're title length is too much, Use only relevant keywords and so on. Though these points are essential but you can't rank on these tips, they never tell you anything about backlinks progress or any improvement. My recent post Goa Holiday
