Here’s a neat tool that I ran across which can be used as “quickie” evaluator of the “searchability” of pages on your website. It works by mimicking the search engine spiders that are constantly out on the Web, evaluating and indexing Web pages for inclusion in search results. The tool is provided by Summit Media out of the UK, and it’s free for all to use.
To use Summit Media’s tool, you simply enter the name your company and the web page URL you’d like it to evaluate. It quickly returns a basic analysis of your page, with respect to important attributes that the spiders are looking for. If you want your pages to move up in the rankings, potentially driving considerable more traffic to your site, this is a great place to start.
I’ve found it to be a really handly little part of my SEO toolbox. For the heavy lifting I use a dedicated SEO software package, WebPosition. But for an easy, free, fast check of of a web page or two, you can’t go wrong with Spider Simulator.
