Buzz: Website Grader – Another way to grade your website and evaluate your SEO

By | September 10, 2008

Website Grader blends over 50 different variables, including search engine data, website structure, approximate traffic, site performance, and others, to evaluate the quality of a website, provide comparable data for other sites, and tips on how to improve yours.

I was intrigued so I decided to run a number of websites through the grading and came up with some interesting stuff.

This report for JohnChow Dot Com graded his site at 99.6%. While this doesn’t really surprise me, for sites that score lower grades, a comparison can be quite instructive. So I ran my own blog through this site.

So the grade is a little lower, probably because of the fewer Diggs, fewer Bloglines accounts, and the fewer De.licio.us bookmarks. They do provide a download ebook so that you can pick up a few tips, I’m just reading it now. It’s always fun to rate your site and see how it measures, but really the whole blog thing is simply about how much traffic you get anyway. So don’t let this be another Blogging Dead End.

    I’m guessing it’s not very accurate – it rated my site 95.4, and I only post once every 10 days or so. And even then it’s usually only a photo.

    I had a look at the information. I guess it’s rating sites on your site those criteria… knowing your site I think it’s a reasonable estimate. You don’t have any bloglines subscribers and your site isn’t bookmarked much in delicious. It’s a pity we don’t know the weightings… it might help to focus on what’s important.

    I’m not convinced by this grading system.
