Check Out How Search Bots See Your Website

    Why not try the ‘fetch as Google bot’ function found in webmaster tools? That would be the ‘exact’ Google’s view of your page

    Google crawlers or bot can check the backend of the website. Specially view source of the code.

    Neat tool. I noticed the results display excerpts of each post, so I wonder how this would affect SEO if you have links at the beginning of all your posts.

    I also discovered my images could be optimized a little better. Thanks for sharing this tool.

  • Mathew Day

    Cool SEO tool, thanks for sharing the link. I’ve never used it before and I’ve been playing around with it for a little while.

    Easy to use and it’s Free. It’s very interesting and useful to see my sites the way the bots see them. I can see where I need to make changes and where everything looks okay.

    It’s another useful site going into my bookmarks.

    Now that’s some helpful information. With the web growing all the time and the number of blogs growing all the time, what can be more helpful than learning how to place well on the search engines? Competition is fierce and an edge can come in handy. I’m going to go right now to see if I have it right.
