Seo Score Check Tools (Web Based)
Here are some website where you can do a Seo Score Check. These websites are web based and don´t require any software to be installed.
- AboutUs.org; After adding your site to AboutUs.org (you should, its free and you get a backlink from a PR5 site), you are able to see the Seo Score of your website and some help on how to improve it.
- Alexa; After you have added your site to Alexa you are able to run an audit (see screenshot below). However this is not free you will get in-depth information about your site performance.

With these software tools you can perform a pretty good and in depth seo score check and are not limited to a number of checks. We also found these tools very cheap in comparison to other on page seo score tools.

If you have a large site it can take a while and you have a change the system will run out of resources if you have more then 10.000 pages to be analyzed but besides that this tool is all you need to perform in depth on page seo analysis.
