To Rank & Grade
Your Blog or Website
How well is your website doing? Is it getting traffic? Does it have SEO problems? How popular is it in social media?
Website Grader & Blog Grader
Hubspot offers Website Grader & Blog Grader websites that produce a rather interesting combination of reviews on your site.
Website Grader is a LOT more thorough and has a LOT more information than Blog Grader, but the two seem to fit together.
Website Grader produces a report that looks like this sample report and has a TON of things you can work on to improve your score!
Hubspot actually produces a whole range of free grader-type tools. Some like these are very impressive and others like the twitter score I was unimpressed with.
Cleaning Up Bad Grades
When I first got my Website Grader score I was NOT happy!
Don’t be surprised if you do NOT like your original score!
I have worked on my score on and off for a couple weeks adjusting little things to slowly build it up.
Website Grader still does not detect my blog, and Blog Grader still thinks I have zero traffic and a number of other hiccups still exist. These can be annoying but don’t let them put you off using these to your advantage. (My Blog Grade is still terribly low because its not being detected properly, but some links and information on the page still make it worth sharing.)
However, I’ve learned a ton just working to improve this number. Its been great to have a solid number that let me see definable progress! It’s so nice to be able to make a couple changes and see a definitive number go up!
I think you’re going to love these new toys! Let me know what you think, how you do and if you have questions about any of the sections. Please tweet, facebook share or better yet onlywire syndicate this post and leave your comments below! If you’ll stop back by after you score and work on it a while, I’ll be glad to help you with questions! Let me know what you think!
