For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, I suggest taking a look at Grader.com, a tool provided by web marketing gurus HubSpot.
Their website grading tool provides a host of useful information that can help you fine-tune your site.
I’ve been playing around with their tools for the past few months, and they’ve been extraordinarily useful in terms of tweaking things to make them more search engine friendly. Also useful is their Twitter profile grader.
Checked out the site. Apparently, http://www.optimalupgrades.ca only scores a 4. I think I need to do some work on that.
My blog, though, got a score of 48… a bit better, but not by much.
Yeah, its heavily weighted towards blogs. I think the idea is that blogs tend to have an RSS feed, which in turn lends itself to a variety of marketing opportunities.
Also, my blog has 97 incoming links through Digg, Stumbleupon, etc, as well as having 67 pages listed on Google, being Google ranked 1, high-school-level reading (as opposed to College for my business site), and is listed on DMOZ, Yahoo, and ZoomInfo (I believe you were the one to add me there).
