New SEO Tool – Top Ten Analysis SEO Tool – Free

I’ve been a busy bee here the past few weeks designing and rewriting webuildpages.com, updating the SEO Tools, and training new Link Ninjas.  We’re planning the new release of webuildpages.com next Friday.

But I thought that today I’d release some new improvements to the ole Cool SEO Tool. It’s also be renamed The Top Ten Analysis SEO Tool.

It’s an easy tool to use. Simply enter in a url and a keyword phrase.

The results will show:
The top 10 sites in google for that phrase, compared to your site.
It will also show how those top 10 sites rank in Yahoo and MSN.
It will show the number of pages those sites have indexed in Yahoo
It will show the backlinks to the page that ranks in the top 10 (Yahoo)
It will show the total backlinks to that domain (Yahoo)
It will show how many .edu’s are linking to each domain
It will show the Alexa ranking (rounded numbers)
It includes a link to Google’s Related Pages for that site (why sites with less backlinks rank higher)
Shows Google’s Allinanchor Rank
Shows the Age of the URL from the whois
Shows the Age from the wayback machine
Show how often the exact keyword phrase is found on the page

And shows all this in a nice table.

Since we’re now using API’s, this tool will only work for about 1000 searches per day…so if it gets maxed any day, try again the next day.

Enjoy The Top 10 Analysis SEO Tool!

…No Baby yet (Due the 16th).

    Very nice Jim. I’m not sure if your sticking with your own API code to prevent overuse of the system, but have you thought about setting it up so the end user can enter their own API code so you don’t max out?

    That’s a pretty awesome tool. Many thanks for making it!

    Best of luck on the baby!

    Nice tool. Thanks.

    Is there any way to report feedback/bugs.

    I’ve come across a few anomalies just running one or two tests (e.g. site not in top 50 Y! when it’s #1 from my location, not in top 100 MSN when #4 from my location, allinanchor not in top 100 when #2 from my location). Might be my location (Ireland) but seems like a very large variance.

    Great tool but want to help you make it better.

    Most of these comments sound as if they belong on a porn site so I’ll say that this is a really useful resource for SEOs. Congratulations and thank you.

    Thanks, another great tool from Jim the “Tool Man” Boykin. I’ll add it to my toolbelt and pull it out often.

    Jim –

    Awesome new tool – I saw it mentioned on the TLA blog and checked it out yesterday.

    Thanks again and best of luck with the new baby!

    Hi Jim,

    This tool seems more complete than most free competitive-analysis tools out there (even paid services). It times-out when processing (maybe due to high traffic from your post or maxed out API) but with a simple “reprocessing”, the data stays and the analysis goes further. It is still faster than manually collecting the information. I would personally pay to get such a tool and use it with my own API.

    By the way, thank you for being so generous to the SEO industry. I’ve been meaning to say it for a while, whether its tools or tips, not many SEO gurus are as detailed as you. I hope this generosity pays back.
