Nowadays, SEO isn’t anything but “old school” style. A few years ago, we had to plant a few backlinks at different websites, enter a few comments and mostly rely on getting link juice from various sources. Things have changed now; SEO has become slightly more complicated. Webmasters have to rely on branding, rather than getting incoming links from previously mentioned sources.
It is the required key to your digital success. For that very reason, if you are looking to build a domain from a ground-up approach, it is highly recommended to invest in an All-In-One SEO Audit tools. These tools don’t come by cheap, but if you look at them from a long term investment perspective, it is definitely worth a shot.
Many websites are rife with technical setbacks, especially when we look at the competitive online environment these days. However, we got to review a nifty little tool called: SiteChecker. They help to take care of all SEO related woes with a bunch of certain features that work as an “add-on” experience for Webmasters with little to no idea about how SEO works.
In addition, SiteChecker is overlaid with a dedicated Dashboard. On that note, whatever happens simultaneously; be it simple website analysis or an extensive check for a complete site audit, things remain on one page. And this is something we really liked about SiteChecker.
This tool sounds more like SEMRush, which is another phenomenal SEO tool for professionals. However, SiteChecker aims starter Webmasters who want things explained in a simple manner, and do SEO in even simpler ways!
What is SiteChecker?
SiteChecker is an amazing SEO optimization tool, which you can use to get your rankings pushed to the top of Google SERP. Although it largely depends on the SEO expert you are hiring, but SiteChecker is definitely the tool that the expert needs to provide your website the acknowledgment it deserves.
We spent a lot of time on SiteChecker, monitoring a sample website and test all of the features. Kudos to the company for giving us a paid-subscription account for the review.
Given below are all of the details, we thought, you would like to know about this amazing SEO solution.
When entering the website, you will be presented with a welcome screen that will enter you into the main dashboard. Here you will see the dummy project that is added in every account to facilitate you in checking out the website.
In our case, it was a website “kparser.com” which was a demo project added so that we could see how the website operates.
In our case, the company gave us a paid subscription named “Growing” in which we could add one website on our own. In this subscription, we had:
- Daily backlink tracking
- 200 keywords per website
- 1000 URLs per website
- Daily keyword tracking
- Hourly crawling frequency
- 500 backlinks per website
These are amazing features and there are a lot more where they came from. All of this at $35 per month. Now that’s a bargain.
In the projects tab, you enter the website of your choice to create a new Project. new projects are seperate SEO Analysis instances where you can later run a couple of audits to see how things are measuring up. Once the process has started, the application will start to monitor your website. You can see all of the specs and errors of your website by going through all of the features that the website has to offer.
These features are located in the left sidebar on the website. You also have the Projects tab in the sidebar if you want to get back to the first page where all of your projects are located.
When you make a new project, the following sections will appear on top of your project entry.
