Grade Your Website And Check Your SEO Score

Website Grader

I just stumbled upon a cool new tool that grades your website and returns a score of how effective the search engine optimization is on up to 3 pages and it also lets you know if it finds any errors like a inappropriate title or missing keywords.

Website Grader is a free seo tool that measures the marketing effectiveness of a website. It provides a score that incorporates things like website traffic, SEO, social popularity and other technical factors. It also provides some basic advice on how the website can be improved from a marketing perspective.

I suggest adding your site and seeing how it scores, contact us if you would like to improve your websites SEO score and get a better grade in the future.

Check Your SEO Score

Update: HubSpot no longer supports their website grader tool and it has now evolved into http://marketing.grader.com

HubSpot, get a 301 redirect in place for http://websitegrader.com/default.aspx and quit loosing prospects.  I found the bad link from my website analytics.

This PHP code error is running rampant through the internet and we just got done fixing several clients blogs that had issues with this this same T_VARIABLE Parse syntax error.

Tracking down all the pieces was quite a chore but we have come up with a solution:

  1. The first step is to eliminate the infection that is allowing this to happen by using the free version of  Super Spyware Cleaner or another good anti spyware program to scan your entire system, the likelihood is great that you have been hit with a backdoor.bot or trojan dot Daonol – using the Super Spyware Cleaner to eliminate these or any variations from all of your workstations and computers that you have used to access your wordpress blog is the first step.
  2. Change your logins and passwords immediately

  4. Using an FTP program copy your wp-config file out of wordpress root and eliminate the code that has been injected in the header section save a copy of your cleaned wp-config file to upload later.
  5. FTP all the contents of the fresh copy of WordPress 2.7.1  overwriting your current WordPress installation.
  6. Within your active theme, you will need to remove the injected code out of both the function.php and the index.php as well and ftp the clean copies into your themes folder.
  7. This php injected script has also been found in some of the plugin’s as well, Cforms and WordPress Back Up are two we are aware of that can be affected.
