Website Grader – How does your website perform?

Your website might be aesthetically pleasing, but is it performing well? Is it secure, mobile-friendly, and is it generating qualified leads? If you're unsure how your website stands up in terms of SEO, security, lead generation and more, I encourage you to try my Website Grader tool. Leveraging this convenient tool is a great way not only to ensure your website is performing well but it will also clearly show you where there’s room for improvement.

How can I use the Website Grader?

Visit and enter your website address and email address. There is no sales pitch – it’s free to use and to see your results. Upon entering this information, a pop-up window with your results will appear. The length of time it takes to generate the report depends on how many web pages you have. Once the window appears, you will see your website’s performance, SEO, mobile and security grades, as well as your website's score out of 100.


As you scroll down, you will see the graded sections broken down with even more detail.

Your Website’s Performance

Optimizing your website's performance is crucial to increasing traffic, improving conversion rates, generating more leads, and increasing revenue. The Website Grader will break down your website's performance, page requests, page speed, browser caching, minimal page redirects, image size and more. You'll receive a pass on each feature, or you'll receive recommendations on how you can improve. 


Your Website’s SEO

Optimizing your website content for search helps drive organic traffic to your website. You can do this by providing an excellent experience for people and web crawlers alike. Under the evaluation section, you will see an evaluation based on your website's permission to index, meta description, content plugins, descriptive link text, and more. Once again, you will be given a pass or fail with suggestions on how to improve or what you're doing well.


Your Website’s Mobile-Friendliness

A website's mobile-friendliness is often something websites struggle with, but web traffic from mobile devices continues to grow. Optimize your website for mobile, or you'll miss out on valuable traffic leads and revenue. The mobile evaluation section of the Website Grader will review how legible your font size is, tap targets, and your website’s responsiveness. All of these are important for an optimal mobile web browsing experience. 


Your Website’s Security

Is your website secure? A secure website equipped with an SSL certificate and free from vulnerabilities is the standard. This section of the Website Grader will look at your website security. This includes if it is HTTPS secured and if you have secure JavaScript libraries. Once again, you will be given a pass or fail and advice on what you're doing well at and where there is room for improvement.


What’s Next?

The Website Grader’s evaluation doesn't end there! At the end of your evaluation, there is a summary section that will give you what your website is currently doing and the recommendations and how you can improve.
