Website management is a tricky thing. Keeping track of everything on your website on top of the multitude of other tasks you do for your startup can feel like a bad game of “wack-a-mole.” You knew going into this that you would be juggling a lot of things at once, and there are loads of products on the market that claim to have the potential to ease some of this burden. Now I’m not saying that there are not good products out there, but I will ask, “out of all of these tools how many of them are both useful AND free?”
Nils Freiling feels he has at least one answer to that question. He is the man behind Webpageanalyse, a free website analysis tool for webmasters and website owners. Webpageanalyse offers a FREE set of tools that help measure the performance, impact, and value of specific websites. All users have to do is enter the domain name and let the site do all the work for you.
You can’t get much better than free
Most people think that website analytics are only about measuring site traffic, but they quickly notice (after managing their first website) that they are about much more than that. Running analytics on your site is a crucial part of gauging the kind of impact your site is making in the market. Measuring the changes in your site’s data in the days following a marketing campaign is a very simple way for seeing how effective the campaign was without having to pay a third party. The potential for the bootstrapping set of entrepreneurs is obvious here.
The value of Webpageanalyse doesn’t just lie in its potential. Its utility is equally as impressive. There are numerous tools (not to mention widgets within tools for fine-tuned analysis) and the platform’s services measure the performance by focusing on four major categories:
- WHOIS – a protocol that turns raw site data into something mere mortals can read and understand
- PageRank – lets you check what Google thinks about your site by measuring the relative importance of the site based on Google’s magical algorithm
- Speed-Testing – see how fast or slow your site is for users, and see what you can do to optimize this
- IP-Lookup – one stop shop for getting your site’s online identity markers and information
Smart tools are no-brainers
Starting a business and / or website can be pretty intimidating. Webpageanalyse can help make the whole process easier, more manageable, and it’s free! As far as resources go, this one sure stands out from the crowd. There are a lot of potential money suckers out there for business and website owners, so it’s cool to know that there are free tools that can help analyze site data – because who doesn’t want to have one less thing to pay for?
