Does Your Blog Hurt and Have a Temperature?

Sick dog with hot water bottle on its head

It’s Potluck Sunday at On Blogging Well, and like Forest Gump’s box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get. Today I’m going to share an easy way to check the health of your blog. HubSpot has developed a free online tool called Website Grader. Simply type in the URL of your blog and you’re “off to the races” while Website Grader checks various aspects of your blog’s marketability, Search Engine Optimization, and user accessibility and readability. They’ll even email you a free detailed report if you want that includes adjustment suggestions you can make to increase your score. In case you’re wondering, On Blogging Well got an 84% the first go-round, then, after less than 10 minutes of tweaks, I re-submitted the site to Website Grader and scored a 96.2%. Not bad.

wohoo! Songs From My Journey scored 85% on the website grader. I wonder what I’d score if I actually knew what I’m doing!
