Question: Do you find much value in Hubspot’s Website Grader or Marketing Grader free tools?
Answer: No. Woorank.com is a better tool I think – much improved of late. In all cases, you need have a basic SEO knowledge that I teach in my classes to really understand what is going on. Tools per se are only tools; you need SEO knowledge to be able to interpret them. I believe that marketing should drive SEO, and many of these tools confuse people by making it seem like a purely technical problem, when it is a marketing problem with technical aspects.
At any rate, check out woorank.com for a pretty good, free tool with less BS than the Hubspot tools.
