What's Your Website's Grade?

Posted by Siobhan Hitchmough

A common question asked by business owners is “how can other people find my website?”  After all, even if you have the best website in the world, if no one knows about it, your business doesn’t benefit.

One common way is to hope people find you through Google or other search engines.  But say, if your company sells cheese, how many results will turn up if they search for a “cheese company”?  Hundreds of thousands.  Chances are your company won’t even show up on the first few pages, unless you do some search engine optimization (SEO) on your website.

SEO is a big field that requires a lot of knowledge in both the web technologies and how search engines work.  If you want to learn more about SEO, there are plenty of tutorials out there.  But as a starter, if you just want someone to take a quick look at your website and tell you what you should change, you can take a look at WebSite Grader.

Website Grader is a free online tool for SEO beginners that tells you how effective your website is, and how you could change it to get a higher Google ranking.

It’s free, so give it a try.  What’s your grade?

  2. Hi Veronica,

    Unfortunately this is a custom theme that is fairly tied to our website (like the top toolbar and the logo). So it will be pretty hard for you to reuse this theme.


  3. I’ve read a few good stuff here. Certainly price bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how a lot effort you place to create this sort of fantastic informative site.
