Are You Doing Your SEO Wrong?

With all of the algorithm updates Google has been releasing, have you ever wondered if you are keeping up with them?

From Panda to Penguin to now Hummingbird, the updates aren’t stopping. Having all of these animal names as algorithm updates isn’t helping either.

Because of this, I decided to create a free website analyzer that will crawl your site and tell you specific things you need to fix. All you have to do is go to and enter in your URL.

Here’s what the website analyzer will do for you:

How well are you doing?

site analysis

The first part of the free report is an overall estimate of your traffic. The tool will estimate how popular your website is compared to all of the other sites in the world. Based on the screenshot above, Quick Sprout is the 2,476th most popular site in the world.

After your traffic ranking, you’ll notice two main scores: the first is your overall SEO score, and the second is your speed score. Both of these are important as search engines take site speed into account when ranking a website.

Beneath your scores, you’ll see a few different colors: red, yellow and green. Red indicates things are bad; yellow means things are all right; and green tells you it’s all good.

Is your site mobile compatible?

desktop analysis

The next section of the report is a visual screenshot of what your site looks like on a desktop computer, tablet and a mobile phone. All you have to do is click the tabs to see the look of your site on different devices.

In the screenshot above, you can see that my email opt-in form is below the fold, which means I need to move it up slightly, which should improve my conversion rate.

mobile analysis

If you look at the mobile view, you’ll notice that my header takes up too much of the screen. I can probably shrink that down so you can focus on reading the content, which should make for a better mobile experience.

What should you work on next?

seo analysis

Now, let’s dive into the SEO analysis section. This is where you’ll get recommendations on what you should improve. From warnings to errors, the tool will list what’s wrong with your site’s SEO and what you need to fix.

As you can see from the screenshot above, I need to work on the length of my headings as some of them are too short, while others are too long. I also need to increase the length of my meta description tag and add alt tags to a few images that are missing them.

Do the social media sites love you?

social media

The next section will show you the number of social shares you have on all the major social media sites. From Facebook to Twitter and Pinterest, your count will be listed.

This is an important metric because search engines use social media signals within their algorithms. If you can get more social media love, your overall traffic will grow.

How many backlinks and indexed pages do you have?

links pages

If you ever wondered how many backlinks you have or how many of your web pages are indexed, you’ll find your answers here. Through a few APIs, I was able to pull this data directly from the search engines. It may not be 100% accurate, but it will give you a good idea of your standings.

If you have a healthy number of indexed pages or backlinks, those two boxes will be green. If you are right in the middle, the boxes will be yellow. And if you need to improve those two metrics, the boxes will be red.

What keywords are you targeting?


The keywords section will show you your most popular keywords and the way you can improve their rankings. If you aren’t targeting those keywords, then you don’t need to use them within your heading tags, title tag or meta description.

But if you are targeting any of those widely used keywords on your site, make sure you place them in your heading tag, title tag and meta description as it will improve your chances of ranking higher.

What should you do with this data?

seo recommendations

This if my favorite part about the tool because it will show you what changes you need to make. It will even organize them by high, medium and low priority. Most of the changes the tool suggested for Quick Sprout are medium and low priority.

The recommendations are pretty descriptive. If you aren’t sure what to do, however, you can always click the “get free help” button, which will take you to the forum. You can post your questions there, and I will respond. 🙂

How fast does your site load?

speed test

Most speed analysis tools are complicated. They use all of these technical terms and don’t tell you how to fix your problems.

To avoid this, I decided to create a graph that explains what’s slowing your load time. All you have to do is look at the graph to see what you need to work on.

If you want something even simpler, just click on the “web performance” tab, and it will give you a letter grade for each element that makes up the speed test.

speed test performance

If you want something more descriptive and technical, just click on the “full report” tab. It will show you the code slowing down the load time of your site.

speed test report

How can you improve your speed?

speed recommendations

Similarly to the SEO section, you will also be given recommendations on improving your site’s speed. They will be broken down by high, medium and low priority. If you aren’t technical, don’t worry. I even link to explanations for each recommendation and provide details on how you can fix that specific problem.

If you still find yourself needing help with improving your website speed, you can click on the “get help” link and post your questions on the forum. I’ll gladly answer your questions to try to help speed up your site so you can rank higher.


My hopes are you like the Quick Sprout Website Analyzer. It’s free, so make sure you enter in your URL and start working on improving your site. If you want to see how you stack up against your competitors, enter in their URLs as well. You will see their scores versus yours.

If you see any issues with the website analyzer or you would like to make feature requests, just leave a comment below. I will do my best to accommodate all of your suggestions.

If you like the Website Analyzer, do me a favor and share it with your friends. The more popular it gets, the more I will invest into building it further. 😉

P.S. The new blog homepage is now

P.P.S. I would really appreciate it if you tweeted about the website analyzer.


  1. Awesome! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Chirag Dodiya :

    Awesome Tool… Totally Love It..

    The recommendation it gives are very precise and to the point.

    Thanks Neil..

    • Chirag, thanks and I am glad you find the tool helpful. Please let me know if you have any additional questions 🙂

  3. Amazing, I used lot of other tools but this one is very fast.
    Thanks for making this a free one.

  4. Rahul Kuntala :

    Wow.. fantastic stuff Neil.

    My SEO score is A. Speed score : 79. Load time: 1 sec

    I’m always fascinated about increasing website loading times.

    Definitely you’ve got a great tool for analyzing all key SEO factors at one place. Worth sharing 🙂

    Keep rockin’ Neil.

    • Rahul, glad you are finding the tool useful. I think site speed is the best indicator of how long someone will stay on your site. Looks like you are doing all the right things. Keep up the great work 🙂

  5. Great tool, loved the speed testing and the screenshots for the different devices.

    Unsure how accurate backlinks counter is – are you pulling links just to home page or entire domain?

    Future improvement ideas – show good/bad/high/low comparison to like sites. 100 backlinks might be great for a site in industry A, terrible for industry B, etc.

    But, great, free tool.

    • It is just pulled for the homepage. Working on improving this over time.

      As for a comparison, a competitive analysis will be coming in the later months.

  6. This is really awesome tool. Seems i can get complete details about my website under one roof. Very useful one. Thanks for giving it for completely free of cost.

  7. Thanks a lot Neil for sharing such a wonderful tool. I never know such factors are so important and how can i measure my errors.

    thanks again mate 🙂

  8. Thanks for sharing this tool Neil, really slick!

  9. Mike Abasov @ Mobify :

    Great tool, Neil!

    One note, though: Videos are usually loaded in an iframe but your website analyzer calls all iframes bad. I feel like this factor should be revisited.

    Mike at Mobify

    • Iframes aren’t bad, they are only bad if you are wrapping text based content within them. I’ll have to fix the messaging on the tool, thanks for the heads up.

  10. Really awesome tool sir. looks I can get complete details about my blog at one place. Thanks for giving it for completely free of cost. Waiting for more useful stuffs. 😀

    • Daksh, glad you found it helpful. I think information should be free which is why I set out to create this tool for everyone 🙂

  11. Adithya Shetty :

    Awesome tool Neil, one of Best SEO tool. . .
    Thanks for this 🙂

  12. Wow Neil, Great tool. I got almost all the important seo things on one tool. It will help me a lot to improve my blogs.

    Thanks for this very helpful tool.

    • Veer, glad I could help. I think this tool will really allow people to get actionable insights for free. Thanks for your feedback 🙂

  13. BAM! Told you it would be a great one 😉

  14. Great tool, great tutorial, great information as always.. Thanks Neil

  15. It feels awesome. Does it do everything on its own?

    BTW, you HAD TO change the blog URL, or is it because the change would result in more direct traffic to the website analyzer?

    Great work with it. Like the forum, design is stunning.

    • Rohit, it definitely does everything on it’s own. I changed the URL because I wanted people to easily access the tool to see how their site is performing 🙂

  16. This is better than the software I pay for. Thankyou!

  17. Well done!

  18. Neil, this is great.

    Where are you sourcing this information from? The site popularity seems to be coming from Alexa, are you tracking social shares and the like from Moz or some other sources?

  19. :

    Can’t say more.
    Another Great tool from Neil.

  20. It has more to do with the fact that the Home Page of Quicksprout is going to change even more 😉

    • Serge, over time you will definitely see some changes that will make it easier for folks to optimize their sites.

  21. This really awesome Niel. This is better than some paid tools.

  22. And he’s got some awesome upgrades coming in the future for it as well 😉

  23. Man, you are like a saint of the cloud-based world. It’s no surprise that QuickSprout is so highly popular on the internet!

  24. Hi Neil,

    These are generic tests and don’t address any advanced features. For example: what DB are you using for backlinks? It shows 97 where actual number is way above 300 (majestic, ahrefs)… So I would take the results with a grain of salt. Other things are cool, but not really for in-depth technical analysis of the website.

    Hope the tool will improve in time.

    • Thanks for the feedback Chande. Yes the backlink data is pulled from Alex and indexed pages from Bing. Over time the tool will improve.

  25. Karl Steinmeyer :

    Neil, you never stop impressing me.

  26. Neil…one word…


    I don’t know how you do it,


  27. Great tool Neil. Very helpful for the rest of us.
    I’ve been learning a lot through your blog posts

    • Mamour, glad you are finding the tool helpful. Please let me know if you need any help with anything at all 🙂

  28. Very interesting. I thought it wouldn’t apply to my new site as it’s only a few weeks old, but some great insights.
    Especially on site speed – sheesh, I’ve got some work to do there!

    Great tool, Neil, thanks.

    • Susie, site speed is often the biggest thing people need to optimize for. Please let me know if you need any help along the way 🙂

  29. Thanks a lot Neil for the free tool, I really feel great about the moment when Google directed me to your blog for the first time 🙂

  30. Thanks you so much Neil for this amazing tool.
    Nailed the user experience and perfect complement to all your very knowledgeable and useful guides!

  31. Thomas Oppong :

    Thanks again Neil. I just analyzed my site. A- looks okay for my site. I am closely looking at the other tabs.

    I used to be D, until i read an a page speed article by Neil. I began to do lots of changes and now my rankings are improving.

    I can never thank Neil enough for his great tips. This tool is awesome.

    • Thomas, glad you got your website grade up. I am glad I could help. Please let me know if you need any further help 🙂

  32. This is awesome Neil.

    And to be sincere, it’s much better than most of the paid SEO tools you will find these days. It’s simple to use and tells you exactly what you need to improve your overall website.


    • Ayodeji, that was one of my primary concerns when creating this website. I wanted it to be simple and easy to use. Glad you are finding it helpful 🙂

  33. Kosio Angelov :

    Great tool Neil! I analyzed a couple of sites and it was pretty interesting to see the findings. The analyzer is super fast and it looks the best out of all other similar tools so kudos to your designers.

    One question though, why is there a character limit on the heading tags? I haven’t heard of such a suggestion before so I am curious to know if that is for SEO or conversion purposes.

    • You can have them longer or shorter, but a lot of other SEOs and I noticed that when they are in that range they tend to help better.

      It could be off as search engines change their algos a lot, but that is what we found to be ideal.

  34. Kosio Angelov :

    I don’t think he HAD to change it but given the amount of traffic the home page gets I think it is a pretty easy way to quick start the popularity of the analyzer.

    • Kosio, definitely. I always suggest making small tweaks along the way. Please let me know if you have any questions or feedback 🙂

  35. I checked my website and my competitor website and despite the fact that my report is better on this tool, my competitor ranks much better than me on Google.
    So, what else I should do to improve?

    • Doru, there are a number of things you could do. What are the suggestions that were put forth. You should start optimizing based on the suggestions 🙂

  36. Maria Peagler :

    Neil – what a cool tool. I immediately went to it and got my grade. A for SEO – yahoo!

    This makes me wish I could code. What’s your best recommendation for hiring someone to develop a tool like this?

    I’ll definitely be sharing this awesome resource.

    Thanks Neil!

    • Best bet if you aren’t too familiar with development, design or project management, is to hire a firm who can do it all. But that can easily run you a few hundred thousand dollars.

      I myself managed the whole project and am used to this as it is a small project compared to Crazy Egg or KISSmetrics.

  37. Truly a complete Analyzer Sir.
    Thanks for the tool, it’s very easy to operate and understand the things related to website.

  38. Neil,

    Besides being BRILLIANT…
    …the graphics you guys use are awesome and really speak to my brain.


  39. Great website tool! I was checking out a couple of my sites and it has some good recommendations. Just one thing I noticed, the report shows the following warnings/recommendations:

    “The page is blocked by robots.txt.”

    “It looks like your site is blocked by the robots.txt file and won’t be indexed by search engines.”

    But, it’s not blocked by the robots.txt and the site is indexed in the search engines and ranked pretty well. The robots.txt file is just the standard “allow all” since I don’t have any admin stuff on this site:

    User-agent: *

    • Travis, glad you like the tool. I will have to look into the issues that you brought up. Thanks for bring it to my attention. Please let me know if you notice anything else 🙂

  40. Jitendra Kumar Sahoo :

    Hi Neil,

    Tool looks awesome and work very nicely. Before few month I tried to develop a SEO tool using PHP scripting to calculate those factor you included in your analyzing tool, also I am succeeded to get information after processing data. But I am failed to organize, order and many more to do in that tool.

    I know you as a SEO Expert, if you develop this tool by yourself then One Big Salute to your work.

    I am a newbie, I would love to listen some suggestion from you…

    • Jitendra, that is awesome that you endeavored to create an SEO tool. I think you should keep working on it 🙂 . If you need any help with the process of it all please shoot me an email.

  41. Sensitive Teeth :

    Wow, Really interesting results… What a great tool Neil ! Makes it easier to focus on some areas for improvement.
    Thanks for sharing the tool, love your stuff !


    • Bob, glad you are finding the tool helpful. I would love if you could give some more feedback as time goes by. I am always looking to improve on products 🙂

  42. Brilliant SEO conclusion Niel. You’re amazing! SEO though plays a real stuff indeed 🙂

  43. Laura Raisanen :

    Hi Neil,

    Thanks so much for sharing this tool with us, it’s absolutely awesome and so fast!

    It’s telling me my meta description is missing… now trying to work out where that needs to be added.

    Thanks again for the tool!


  44. Neil,

    Thanks for putting together such a robust tool. As others have said, it is very fast compared to other tools I have used that evaluate similar metrics.

  45. Crazy! I was just struggling with finding a good, simple tool for SEO reports yesterday!

    This is amazing. Love how simple its laid out as well as easy to understand actionable steps to take.

    Your the king Neil!

  46. Bennie Stander :

    Neil, great tool! Thanks

    Are you really trying to take over the www?

  47. Thanks for launching it so early Neil! I’m so glad that I was able to test this tool in developing mode. Thank you so much for showing it earlier last month. I really love this tool! And its completely free, thats the most awesome part of you and your team.

    Keep rocking! 😀

  48. I go to the website analyzer, enter one of our websites, click Analyze and nothing comes up. 🙁

  49. Hey that is an awesome tool buddy. thanks for such a good and valuable service. Is this tool free every time?

  50. So impressed, you are the man!

  51. Neil Patel is my internet marketing man crush.

    Neil, something i would buy in a split second if you made it, is a keyword research tool like Market Samurai, but geared towards the SEO service industry. I love MS, but it is geared towards affiliate marketing.

  52. Well, its an A and 75 speed score.. is good, bad or OK?

  53. Must be an issue on your end 🙂 it comes up just fine (you can see it here)

  54. Great tool Neil. Very simple and straight to the point, minimalist :). I am not sure how accurate it is.

    You inspire me Neil. Keep up the great work.

  55. I can only say one word Neil, thanks a million times for giving out this tool for free. You are the man 🙂

  56. Somesh ( :

    One bug I notice. It says pages are invalid when they are not.

    For example, this is a valid page on my website.

    It returns the error “ did not return a valid response.”

    Appreciate the great tool. Thanks for the great work.

  57. Somesh ( :

    Neil, it could be lower casing the URL which would cause the problem.

  58. hi neil,

    can you suggest me any tool that will help me in seo and keyword

  59. Hey Neil

    Love the analysis report, going to get cracking on fixing a lot of the errors & suggestions on the our website. I found the report a lot easier to understand compared to a different one I would normally use.

    Small bug on the speed test on my end nothing coming up just giving you the heads up


  60. Hey Neil,

    Luv what your doin and seems to be a great tool to keep up with one’s site. My problem is I can only get the tool to load 31% and then it freezes..I’ve tried in chrome & firefox. But I will check back! Thanks

  61. Very impressive. I scored an A and and 81. Thank you so much for making this available.

  62. Excellent tool Neil! I will share with as many as possible. Thanks for putting this together for all the Quick Sprouters

  63. Hey Neil – solid idea for a tool and a great way of summarizing and helping to prioritise SEO executables.

    Of course being new it’s gonna have a few bugs, but this is a great help in terms of getting a snapshot on what’s what and where to start.

    When do you envisage providing a bit more visabilty on what the data sources are, e.g. backlinks, etc.

    Love your work my man!


    • Ed, great points. Things will definitely get more robust as time goes by. I just wanted to provide everyone with a tool that would help them analyze their site quickly. I will have more information soon 🙂

  64. Brilliant tool Neil, SEO score is A+ 🙂

    Glad to see, I am doing everything right.

  65. Shahzad Hassan Butt :

    Hey Neil,

    Like your time. It is really helpful. Highlighted issues and recommendations are really awesome. Good Luck !

  66. Jawad Khan | WritingMyDestiny :


    Its amazing to see how you keep coming up with such quality stuff

  67. AH! Your stuff is always so amazing and thought provoking and this just took me over the edge. Love you stuff!

  68. Amazing tool Neil.

    It seems that tool server is using caching to cache the result of a site. I made some changes but the tool is still showing the old results.

    Can you add a link for rescan so that we can see the updated result?

  69. Dima Al Mahsiri :

    In one word : Magnificent!
    I got an A score 🙂
    This tool is great for newbies and professionals both at the same time. I found that my blog’s load is slow, but I also found some recommendations for speeding it up .
    Thanks again 🙂

  70. Ajith Edassery :

    Just got the tool running. SEO score B- and 83% speed 🙂 Got a couple of points to work on for the next two days.

    Great tool Neil, really liked the colorful scorecard.

  71. Thanks you very much. Not that you have saved money, but have helped me understand better what I need to improve and upgrade. You are very kind.

  72. Is the RSS url going to change too?

  73. Great tool! Thanks Neil!

  74. Nice job, Neil! What’s not to like? Instant feedback and recommendations that you can implement immediately. I just used it to speed up my newly revamped website. Went from low 70s to 91% on Google PageSpeed after using your analyzer. (bowing to you).

  75. Great tool Sir … I came to know many seo errors about my site thanks a lot

  76. Neil,

    Visuals are great. Could you provide details on where the backlink data is coming from?


  77. Brodey Sheppard :

    Great tool, I will surely be adding it to my list of SEO tools, I would like to see it test a little more such as your link text and alt text’s and so on I find lipperhey has a few more features which you should look into but GREAT tool! really enjoyed it

    • Brodey Sheppard :

      Actually, I would love to see a score board? It is not just to see who is doing the best but a guide, This person is getting A+ with 100% score let’s have a look at their website and see why it is so good, Insight so we can see the top sites and steal ideas, it is also a contest people are competitive (me) and want to win even if there is no prize bring it I want to be #1. A leader board would be awesome.

      • Brodey, thanks for the suggestions. I will definitely look into all the recos that you provided. Thanks for the feedback 🙂

    • Brodey, I am constantly looking for ways to improve my products. Thanks for the suggestions 🙂

  78. Lenny Ramirez :

    EPIC tool Neil. Sharing it right now! 😀

  79. This is awesome, Neil. You have the uncanny ability to publish stuff that is relevant to me just at the right time!

  80. Jessica @ TheRichTeacher :

    Neil, this is an awesome tool! I was wondering if there was something like this on the web, and I just found your site yesterday when I was trying to look for ways to improve the SEO for my blog, so yay! 🙂

  81. Awesome tool. Nice and easy to understand. Thanks Neil and crew!

  82. very cool tool … very.practicle for the reader yet mart tech thinking behind this …. great neil well done sire

  83. Navid Moazzez :

    This is awesome Neil, thanks so much for sharing this tool with us. Amazing value!

  84. Fantastic tool. I love the design, and really well put together. The number of indexed pages does not seem to be correct however?

  85. This is super thanks Neil! 🙂

  86. Janelle @ SEO philippines :

    Great tool ! This very useful and helpful tool . It is easy to understand as well . Thank you for sharing this tool 🙂

  87. Stu Leventhal :

    Nice tool. Gives a fine SEO report of what one should prioritize on fixing. Got any advice for getting all the corrections done cheaply and quickly. Say perhaps a list of trust worthy outsources who we could just send a copy of your report to and we could rest assure they would take care of it all correctly. Or how about tips on finding and choosing outsources for SEO?

    • Stu, you can honestly make a lot of these changes in house. If you check out my free guides there should be a step by step process outlined for you 🙂

  88. Tweeted x2 this thing is awesome Neil and you just brought out the copywriting guide, you have outdone yoursel this timef my friend 🙂

    Paul Back

  89. Thanks Neil to provide us this great tool. It will help us to analyze the website especially for SEO purpose. I think it can be more helpful while we can analyze competitor websites all together.

  90. Hi Neil,

    I have used some other stuffs to analyze a website but this one is different & cool. Pleasure to use this tool. Thanks… 🙂

  91. Just used this tool and found my score as A+ for SEO and 95 in speed score.But I have few query

    Many places adding nofollow to your comment reply link is recommended but it is shown as warning in SEO reports of this analyzer

    Also does this analyzer takes into account comment links as internal links.One of my page with good number of comments has very high internal links reported but other one with low comment was fine.

    BTW Great tool as every aspect of SEO was covered here with simple interface..Planning to write an article on this tool.

    • Yep, that is why it is a “warning” instead of an error.

      You make a good point on the links stuff, I will work on fixing this.

  92. Jignesh Rathod :

    Thanks a bunch, Neil! Another great, precious gift from you. You rock!

  93. Awesome Neil 🙂 🙂 i tested it with my blog , Got B+ 😛 yes! i know my blog needs improvement . thanks for the tool 🙂
    One thing i couldn’t undersand about “Social Media Impact” it showing my widgets i guess , pls check
    btw aweosme Tool 😀 hats of you

    • Manish, looks like you are doing all the right things. I’ll definitely check that article out. Please let me know if I can help you in any way 🙂

  94. Ravi Janardhan :

    Hey Neil,

    Awesome & beautiful!

    Will check on a few more sites & revert if there’s anything to report.

  95. when i analyze my website on quicksprout

    it shows
    You need to increase your back links, you should consider creating an email outreach program.

    how to Increase relevant Backlink to my site?

    • Yogesh, you should check out my link building guide. There are tons of tips and trips on how to do this:

  96. I analyze my website:, seo score: B speed: 84.
    Page speed Insights at google page speed is 93.

    Which is true?

    • Blograzzi, the truth is different tools will give you slightly different results. As long as you fall within a similar range you should be fine.

  97. Good tool Neil, thanks for this ! But, I am unsure about the accuracy of Site load time figures. It shows 58 seconds for my site but other tools reflect maximum 5 seconds. Google said 1.8 seconds.

    Best Regards,

    • Rahul, thanks for the heads up. I will look into the issue and see if there is anything that needs to be done 🙂

  98. Great information Neil,
    Thank you for sharing with us.
    Cheers to you…;-)

  99. Thanks Neil! I recently used a similar tool – yours is better on all accounts.

  100. Neil, does your tool serves only the cached results?

    I had made numerous changes to my site for speed but, still it shows the first test results. Isn’t there a way to force analyzer to serve the fresh results?

  101. Thanks Neil,

    Maybe you should try API from MajesticSEO – I know it costs some money but I have a strong feeling they have the best backlink DB – not to mention that the quality of the tool in terms of accuracy will dramatically improve.

    Great work!

    • Chande, thanks for the suggestion. However, right now I think the tool as it is will be improved upon and keep providing great value to everyone 🙂

  102. Just beautiful !! It’s like a free and quick consultation. Thank you Neil, you’re awesome man ! keep up the creative and bright work.

  103. I got “A -” for “http:www.***.com” , and “B” for “http://www.***.com/”.
    Could you plz let me reason behind this.

    • Was this a speed score or SEO? Sometimes a site loads slower, which could cause the speed score issue.

      As for the SEO score, if that is off, it is a glitch. If this is the case, let me know and I will work on fixing the bug.


  104. Ashok Khandekar :


    Awsome !!!

    This is THE best tool I could find on the net and it is very comprehensive. It covers all the aspects of a web site and best of all, you get free help from the world’s best friend, philosopher and guide, Neil himself !

    What more can one want ?

    A huge thank you, Neil.


    • Ashok, thanks for the kind words. I really wanted to provide everyone with a tool that would provide daily daily 🙂

  105. Ajith Edassery :

    I noticed that too. Even after I fixed the issues reported by the tool, it’s showing the same rating since yesterday. I hope the technical team fix the caching issues soon. I am eager to know the new rating.

    There’s no doubt that loading speed of a website is one of the most important factor in SEO success.Google wants to provide its user base with the best experience possible when browsing the web – this is what retains their customers. A poor page load speed can have a serious effect on user experience, that is arguably the main reason Google sometimes ranks these sites less favorably.

    • Barbara, excellent insights. Thanks for taking time to explain the concept of site speed. Appreciate the feedback I look forward to hearing more from you 🙂

  107. Awesome tool, thanks for sharing Neil.

  108. Hello Neil!

    I am a newbie blogger (for fun, not business purposes) and I find your advice very helpful (some easier done but still!). “I decided to create a free website analyzer that will crawl your site and tell you the specific things you need to fix.” <- Umm how awesome! This is great! I have a B+ — It says to remove dynamic urls.. what are those?! How do I make them go away?!

    Happy Friday!

    • Iva, glad you are finding the website tool helpful. I wanted to provide something to my readers that would be useful and help them along their way with SEO. Check this article out on dynamic URLS:

  109. Wow, what a great tool! This gives me a clear path on how to speed up my site and increase my SEO. Thank you very much for steering us in the right direction.

  110. shriganesh bhat :


    You once again proved ..!! you are the Best..!! I m really speech less..!! The word “awesome” may sounds little small for this tool, Thanks a lot 🙂

  111. Hi Neil,

    Very nice article and website analyzer tool is awesome … thanks for the efforts and sharing it.

    One request … the latest Google AdWord keyword tool not that
    useful specially to find keywords traffic …. any alternative suggestion or you are in process to develop some thing like this.

    • Laxmikant, right now I think that is one of the best out there. You may also wanna try the suggester tool or check out my guide:

  112. Really nice tool. I like it. Thanks Neil for your free tools.

  113. Thanks for allowing the free use of the website analyzer tool.

    However, I can’t understand why the keywords generated by the tool were totally alien; not one among the many keywords used in the site came out.

  114. I’m noticing the same inaccuracy with Shopify sites (the robots.txt file blocks some pages like checkout, etc, but the meaningful site content all remains properly exposed).

    I also noticed that the analyzer doesn’t seem to recognize the Shopify CDN.

    Great work, though, and a useful high-level assessment.

  115. This is a great tool, fast and easy to use.

  116. Neil, awesome tool! It will be very helpful for all digital agencies and online marketers without a doubt. That being said, I have two quick questions:
    1. How accurate are the results provided by your tool? I mean, have it been tested with multiple websites and other tools? It could be awesome to use just depend on your tool while creating reports for clients, so fast and easy.
    2. Suggestion for a feature – ability to generate and download white-label reports for digital agencies. What do you think? 🙂

    Ah…one more thing – I can’t say enough good things about your guides which I constantly share with other people. Keep doing what you do, thanks!

    • 1. In most cases it is pretty accurate. I’ve tested up against 4 other tools.

      2. I am working on the PDF reporting. 😉

      Thanks for the kind words.

  117. Thank you for this great tool which provides great insights which I otherwise would not know. I have started to make changes to my sites.

  118. Neil, It’s awesome. I could see A+ on my blog.

    FYI.. I have linked this on my blog under 10 Online Free Tool to analyse SEO.


  119. Neil tanks for publishing article its very useful and tool i adore it gives accurate results

  120. Leonie Waldron :

    Neil, you are the bomb, thanks for this!

  121. The tool is just awesome. I like how it looks.
    Great free tool for analysing a website.
    However, backlink counter doesn’t count enough backlink is what I have noticed.

    • Hoang, glad you find it helpful. Thanks for your feedback. I’ll have to look at the backlinks to see what is up. Thanks for the heads up.

  122. Saidul Hassan :

    Hi Neil,
    I was referred by a client and checked your analyzer tool. In short, for a free tool, it’s impressive! I have just two questions, the backlink count (unique domain I assume) and indexed page numbers… they seem to be pretty low compared to Moz ose and Google wmt. Any hint on why such huge difference and what method is followed in your tool to count those numbers?

    • Yea, I am pulling the pages from Bing and the links from Alexa. I am working on fixing this to show more accurate data.

  123. Hey Neil,

    Great tool and thanks for posting. The social media part I am finding a bit baffling though and I have noticed the same thing on google page rank.

    The analyzer shows I have 47 likes on Facebook when I have over 11,000 the same is true for Pinterest where it shows zero shares and I have thousands. Where is the disconnect? Are there some kind of settings that need to be tweaked for this on my site?

    many thanks for the great blog

    • Tony, it could be a mixture of some things that need to be tweaked on your end and some disconnect between the tool and social media. I will look into it and see what’s going on. Thanks for sharing your feedback.

  124. Hey Neil,

    Thanks for the great tool. I was stunned by the tool on the homepage, and then I quickly entered one of my blog to test the easter egg. 😀

    It really works amazing.

    • Hamza, glad I could help. I really wanted to provide something of value to my readers. Keeping the momentum going is very important to me. Thanks for your feedback 🙂

  125. wow, this article is very great. maybe i have to change my way to increase my seo of web. and i will use it as my guidance in do a right SEO. thanks

  126. Hi Neil,

    How are you doing? I am looking for completely free all in one roof SEO analysis tools, any suggestions?

  127. Amazing tool ! Very useful indeed. Thank you. I have used lot of free tools but this is just awesome. You have been blessed by God with great mind for sure.

  128. Many thanks, every time i visit your site, it encourages me to go back and rethink my SEO strategies and I always find good practices to implement.

    Alway the best Neil. 🙂

  129. Darin L. Hammond :


    I follow you around the web, and enjoy your SEO and copywriting ideas. I have already used the tool you provided and found it very helpful. It reads like an infographic, which makes the information easy to process.

    Thanks again, you are awesome!


    • Darin, that was my intent: to make it as easy to digest as possible. Glad you liked it. Thanks for the feedback 🙂

  130. Thanks for this amazing tool, It covers everything and it’s really fast, looks good as well…

  131. Prakash Mishra :

    Very helpful….I have to work a lot! But I am bit confused about the desktop experience(screenshot) of my website, elements are displaced in screenshot.

    • Prakash, let me look into it. If you could email me a screenshot of exactly what is going on that would be helpful.

  132. Naveen Kulkarni :

    Awesome tool Neil,

    Just tried myself and found very useful. I am sure, this would help me in improving my site(s).

    A BIG thank you 🙂

  133. Bad results with Genesis Framework and Prose Child. Any suggestions to get better speed?

  134. Neil,
    You keep raising the bar, making it tougher for the rest of us, haha. Really nice tool and the design is so nice. Also enjoying your new copywriting guide.


  135. Sachin Bathla :

    Hey Neil, is there any way we can compare this with top 10 ranking websites or competitor websites all together? Please let me know.

  136. Very helpful tool. Thank you so much. 🙂

  137. Sharlene Mani :

    Hi Neil, One of the URL I entered and that gave me a reason (YOU ARE USING NOFOLLOW LINKS
    Double check to see if you meant to use the following nofollow links.) — Can you explain bit more on No Follow Link. Is it bad for SEO?

    • Sharlene, there is nothing wrong with a no-follow link. It just means you aren’t giving anyone link juice if there link shows up on that particular page. If you want people to get SEO value from linking to you on those pages you would have to disable no-follow on those pages.

  138. It is really a nice tool.

    For my website it shows Speed score : 71, SEO Score: A+, which seems to be OK but load time is 3.12 seconds and 3.0 MB page size.

    I have a query regarding Screen Shots section of this tool.
    In my site’s report all the three modes – Desktop, tablet and phone are not showing advertisements and other right hand side contents. Is it due to the more width of template we have chosen? Will this problem be solved by reducing width of my website template?

    Please explain. Thanks

    • I am not sure. I would take your phone and a tablet and load up the site. If the ads are showing up, you are fine.

      Sometimes the screenshots can be a bit off in the tool as I am replicating a device and not actually loading it from an iPhone.

  139. Thirunaukarsu :

    Great Tool, This tool gives the clear picture of the website performance. I hope this tool will help in improving my website.

  140. Magento eCommerce Designer :

    Hello Neil!

    Thanks for your awesome tool and your hard work & time!

    I tested my website and there is a problem with the test:

    Your high priority suggestions:

    “Look to combine all scripts into a single script, and similarly combining all CSS into a single stylesheet. This is the key to faster pages.”

    “Make JavaScript and CSS external. This will allow the resources to be cached and increase site speed.”

    It’s already completed, so i don’t understand this suggestions.

    Thanks for your answer!


  141. Magento eCommerce Designer :

    Thanks for your help Neil!

  142. Drew Goettemoeller :

    Nice tool. Trying to put woorank out of business? I’m sure you’ll get some juice out of this.


  143. Hello Neil,

    Your tool is not working properly. Its showing application error.

    This tool is very helpful for analyzing SEO elements. I have used for my website and got good information about social media impact.
    It’s very fast in providing the analysis.


  145. Neil !
    its really great SEO tool. i have also tested my site. and got nice SEO information. Thank you for creating this tool.

  146. Nice tool,just checked my sites and the tools worked perfectly.

  147. Hi Neil,
    Nice tool! , any ideas why
    “ did not return a valid response.”

    I don’t think it is “the lower casing of the letters ” as mentioned in comments above.

    • I think it is because of the https. 🙁

      • Thanks for your reply, Neil

        I tested your tool with some other https sites. While some work, others don’t. Another not working one is:
        I’m not entirely sure whether the problem is related to https or server hosting or the tool. Any more thoughts ?

        • Frank, thanks for bringing this to my attention. Let me look into it and get back to you. I am constantly making improvements to the tool and this is helpful 🙂

  148. Hope you don’t make this tool paid after some months… 🙂

  149. an interesting tool indeed. but some figures and results went wrong sometimes, like indexed pages number or pages loading time, wich are quite different from results i have in Google page speed tools for exemple. i’m just saying… are you planing to improve it in some way ? thanks for sharing it

    • JoSlap, I will have to look into that. Thanks for providing your feedback. I definitely am constantly making changes and improving things.

  150. This is a fantastic tool. Like JoeSlap indexed pages result didn’t quite match-up with what I’ve found in google, but this is a great guide nonetheless. At least it gives users a starting point and a little bit of insight as to what they need to improve.

    • Chris, glad you are finding the tool helpful. I think it does a good job of giving users all the essential elements that they need moving forward. Thanks for your feedback 🙂

  151. Really awesome tool. I have checked my site and now come to know about my faults. Need to work. Thanks. Again, My SEO score is A, is it good?

  161. Hi – Just want to get an idea re date range that website analyser works to so that I understand the context of the data that I am looking at i.e. how old it is and how many days the snapshot represents. Can any one assist?

  162. Neil, this tool blew my mind. You make it so simple to analyze what is working and what needs to be changed on my site. This would have taken me month’s to try to figure out on my own, and I wouldn’t have even known where to start. I will be sharing this with my team for sure. Thank you so much!

  165. Thank you Neil.. I have a question If we have a site about one product or topic then how will we post so many article about it to index lot of pages in Google? In post’s image it’s showing 800+ is low.. I don’t think I can post more then 100 post about one product.

    • You don’t post about one product. You post about stuff that helps your ideal customers even if it isn’t 100% about your product. If you sold dog collars, I would also post about things like dog care.

  166. Hello Neil,

    Great tool! After I’ve made some of the suggested changes/fixes, the tool is still showing the same issues. Is there something I can do so that the tool refreshes and sees the changes?

  169. Hello Neil,

    Great tools! Until now, those tools can be use on improving your site. It’s hard to do SEO nowadays, getting higher ranks without being penalized by Google.

    Creating quality content, is what working for me right now. Social sharing brings good traffic on my site. As what I learned on this day after doing SEO for almost 1 year, there are SEO strategies are not working well with everybody.

    Some webmasters done everything to get higher rankings but it seems like it’s not working for them as what they expected to after doing everything they learned. Maybe, the answer is on this:

    • Tristan, I have found that great quality content trumps all in most cases. It’s all about having a strategy that is contextual and educates your user base.

    What’s about the theory / “urban legend”: If you put your new blogposts to Google+ , Google indexing your new post faster than naturally? (of course we have all blogposts in sitemap of our blog:

    Is this really working or not worth to do it? (we have more than 70 posts already on our G+ page)

    Thanks for your help!

    • Google + does help the rankings but I would make sure the content appears on my site first. Make sure you look at Buzzsumo and consider the popular content your audience would like.
