As there are many different criteria to be considered for the ranking, promotion and popularity of a website you should check from time to time how and how good the most important of those criteria like technical requirements, linking and an acceptable Page Rank have been fulfilled.  

Note: The Rating module offers the possibility to check the most important criteria at a glance and calculates an overall rating for a website. Please note that it should only be seen as a guideline and does not mean a representative statement about the quality or the real value of your webite. With the help of the rating you can identify which points may need to be improved and measure the changes over a specific period.

To receive a rating, enter a URL into the Website field. Then, click Rate Website to start the rating query. This may take several minutes.

At the top you are shown a an overall rating for the website you entered, that is 75 of 100 (100 as the best possible value) for example. At Site Rank Position you can see which position this website has reached among the top 1,000 websites entered into ASEOPS, for example position 678 of 1000.

Below, you are shown the details on which the rating is based. It is divided into four sections:

  1. Site Rank: ASEOPS determines how good your website is rated by important search engines and directories, for example the Google PageRank. In addition, the age of the website is determined which also plays a role for a good ranking.

  2. Site Popularity: This section is about the number of external links which different search engines determine.

  3. Technical Analysis: ASEOPS checks your websites for technical aspects which might be a problem for search engines, as for example Frames, and checks if the source code of the website has any errors.

  4. Social Bookmarking: Some websites offer the possibility for a user to refer to other good websites and this kind of recommendation becomes more and more popular today. Therefore, this section checks how many social bookmarks for the website in question the most important and best known of these portals offer.

For each factor which contributes to the rating you will get a value which the website got. The criteria have a different weight. Apart from this value you are shown in brackets which percentage of the possible score was achieved.  At Component Rating the scores for each section are summed up.
