How strong is your website? Use Website Grader to diagnose your website’s performance on SEO, mobile, security, and more in seconds.

Our goal with this free tool is to help anyone with a website -- developer, marketer, entrepreneur -- quickly grade their website’s components and find out what they need to improve for maximum effectiveness . We hope that Website Grader helps save time diagnosing, so you can focus on what needs to be done to make your website even better.

Try it for your own website (or a competitors).

FUN FACT: I personally developed the original version of Website Grader over 8 years ago, and it's been through a big overhaul recently. I wrote all the funny (I hope) quips you see while you're waiting for the report to generate.

Would love any feedback or questions. We're cranking away trying to make the tool better.

Thanks for checking it out.

@dharmesh keep getting an error when testing sites.

@bentossell thanks for the feedback Ben. What's your site and we'll take a look? Some sites are difficult to load and test programmatically, hence we error out to the screen above. This may not be a reflection of the sites themselves.

@robert_campion it was Product Hunt.
@bentossell We're looking into the Product Hunt grade also. Thanks for highlighting!

@dharmesh This is awesome. Pretty proud of the score I got (especially since -10 is just for not being HTTPS)

@dharmesh great tool. Oddly I found it yesterday but damn I forgot to hunt it so somebody else gets the credit! :)

97 was my score and as a perfectionist I'm still a little irked.

One piece of feedback is the render blocking, it's a bit odd to dock points for *any* render blocking, especially when sites use foundation or bootstrap and that CSS is in fact necessary for the page to even function.

@arlogilbert I know I'm biased, but since *I* got the credit, I'm pretty pleased. :) Since it's my first real hunt, I'm grateful for some of the mojo.

Your point on the render blocking detection is well taken. Will discuss with the team.

@dharmesh Thanks for the awesome product! I'm happy with the result! :)
@dharmesh Thanks for yet another great tool. Beautiful UI. Very helpful in communicating needed fixes to customers.

I have one question: For a specific site I checked I got 1.3 seconds page speed, while Alexa gave me 2.3 seconds. Any thoughts on why this could be?

I've used variations of these kinds of tools before and their results left me feeling unfulfilled. This was different, though. Took me through the steps clearly and gave actionable results that I suspected my site was suffering from but never quantified before. Pretty sure I'll be using this again! Good job.
