What Mark Does Your Website Get?

Courtesy of Lance Wiggs, I came across Website Grader (which I REALLY want to call Website GradR, due to it’s web 2.0ness).

It’s awesome.

There has been some controversy over whether or not the 6,000 odd links pointing to Decisive Flow are the high quality ones I think they are, or if they could in fact be (shock horror) junk. However, other than that, it’s a cool simple tool that gives you a nice insight into how well your website is doing marketing-wise.

As Lance points out, there are some things that should be taken with a grain of salt, but I reckon it’s worth the 5 minutes it takes to generate the report.

And yes, this post was written at 7.12pm on a Friday night. First time I’ve worked this late on a Friday in ages. Not sure I’m a fan.

  1. If you install Google Webmaster tools, you will be able to see a full list of the external links to your site, and I guarantee all but a few will be junk.

    Why? Because only 75 show up when you check for links via the Google search engine, and I have 5 sites on webmaster tools with thousands of external links, 99% of them spammy junk. But that is just one metric.

    I think it is a handy tool, though I wouldn’t rely on the numbers too heavily. Maybe as a comparison to competing sites it might serve as a useful guide.

    Whoever kept you in the office til then should be shot!

  2. He was certainly handing out pure alcoholic chocolates. Not sure if that’s ‘hot’ or ‘dodgy’ but certainly:

    1. Slowed progress on work significantly.
    2. Made working much funnier
