Writer Promotion - Great Website Optimization Tool

hor I know I promised you a brush up on press releases, and I promise to deliver. I've been up to my ears in the slush pile, for both Vagabondage Press and Little Episodes and making sure our kind contributors get their submissions viewed in a reasonable time frame. But I promise, I'll follow up with some ideas on how to use press releases to promote your work.

In the meantime, I wanted to introduce you a great little tool to help you optimize your author website. It's call Website Grader, and it will scan your site and report back with ideas where it can be improved. It'll check on the quality of your blog, your backlinks, your content readibility and your indexed pages on Google. Just plug in your URL and you'll get some great ideas on how to improve your website presence.

Vagabondage Press only got 95/100, so I guess I better get back to work!

Find it at:


  1. Thanks for the tip. I got a really crap grade though. Sigh. More work.

  2. Interesting, Fawn. I'll have to try this. Looks like I need to come up with a "competing" site for it to compare my site to.

  3. Hi Helen - no, not really. That's mainly for commercial/retail sites, to see how they compare with your competition. It'll work just fine if you don't put one in.

  4. Great post
    You must have a deep understanding of the subject and a thorough knowledge of the techniques and procedures.

  5. I'm #5859 in the queue - guess I'll be waiting around for a while!
