6 All-in-One Tools for Quick SEO Diagnostics

SMS Text

There are a number of tools that aggregate plenty of useful SEO related information on one page. The idea is that you can quickly evaluate any page and get an instant access to each individual source for more information.

I can’t say I use them very often but at times that’s really very convenient when you need a quick SEO overview (the star-rating for each tool reflects my personal opinion, please try and express your opinion on that).

QuarkBase.com provides a huge range of useful data including:

  • On-site information (meta description, tags);
  • Popular pages (per Digg, Delicious, Twitturly, StumbleUpon, Reddit);
  • Alexa traffic details;
  • Technorati reactions;
  • Hosting details.

The overall tool usefulness:

    I’ve never used quarkbase,i’ll give it a try.

  • http://www.vipey.com Vipey

    Great list ann thanx,
    ive used website grader before and its a decent enough tool

  • http://gearyi.com Andrew

    My favorite all time SEO tool was Mcdar’s top ten analysis tool. Since it stopped working I have yet to find a good replacement. Has anyone else?

  • http://www.forwardslashmarketing.co.uk/ Gidseo

    I have to confess I prefer a more organic approach; I think it helps to spend more time looking at a site and get more of a feel for it.
    It’s all too easy to miss useful/important stuff if you don’t spot it early on – such oversights can cost far more time in the long run…

  • http://www.mcraan.com mcraan

    Thanks for the list.

  • http://www.instantfundas.com Kaushik Patowary

    Great tools. I used Quarkbase before and I liked it. Website grader is cool.

  • http://www.seosmarty.com/ Ann Smarty

    @Gidseo, definitely so… That’s why I said I only used them when I need to have a quick look at the site.

  • http://keshwani.wordpress.com Amish Keshwani

    Hey Ann,

    Great list, I have used Website grader but didn’t gave a try to any other in the list. Thanks for the list. I will surely goona try it. This tools are really useful when we need to give first hand analysis to client or track the stats report of the client’s site.

  • http://www.NikaBleu.com Kim

    Thanks for the ideas. I have been using tagurls.com. It seems the data is months old. Does anyone know which programs have fresh info?

  • http://www.speak-tome.com Ted Murphy

    I’ve been using these guys lately for a quick check:

    http://www.dnfame.com

  • http://www.interleado.com Leila

    thanks for the list Ann, free SEO tools can be handy.

    I’m curious though. As a professional SEO type person, what is your take on paid SEO analysis tools? I’m pretty sure you would say something similar to that depending on the tool…but could you give an over all opinion? I’m interested to know…

  • http://www.e-inbusiness.co.uk Devaki Phatak

    Thanks for this list. I had used Website Grader but Quarkbase looks good. Useful for a quick check of top indicators.

    http://www.wolf-howl.com/seo/why-website-grader-is-a-bad-idea/

    I think many need to read that blog post from Michael Gray, then come back here to explain why some Alexa rank or how many bookmarks/profiles you have in social sites is telling you something you need to know.

    Read his post carefully please. I agree with every bit of it.

  • http://www.smarks.com smarks

    @Doug Heil, I agree with you, numbers speak only some part of the story.

    I like quarkbase though. I am using it to get information about websites i find interesting. Seems to be more than just seo.

    websitegrader is okayish. it just shows me almost similar textual information again and again.

    if u just want numbers, then I think popuri or cubestat are good.

  • http://a-thai-village-homestay.weebly.com eric

    Hubspot’s Website Grader is a perfect entry point into this arena. It tells you what’s going and provides useful information on how to address whatever issues present themselves. They produce tons of useful free content. Great company!
