Suggested March 2024 6 Free Tools To Score Comprehensive, Quality Web Pages

Editor Note: Searchmetrics is our partner for our SEJ Summit conference series this year, but we were not paid or perked in any way for this post.

In a world where “content is king,” traditional keyword research is not enough, and SEOs are increasingly responsible for developing a solid content strategy. Google’s Hummingbird update in 2013 made this move critical.

Search Metric’s annual 2024 Search Ranking Factors study launched early this month, and it does much to illuminate the importance of semantically related and comprehensive website content. It shows correlations with how readability and length of web pages are critical to the new, holistic way of writing and presenting content.

[pullquote]In Google-speak, we need “good content,” a vague and subjective yardstick. What is “good content”?[/pullquote]

SEO’s and writers need to be in step with what Google’s machine learning deems “good”. There are content metrics Google’s algorithms use that we as content creators should understand. This piece looks at several tools that help do just that.

Tools that score the quality of web page content help both SEOs and content creators discover content that will score high in Google Search (and be engaging for users) beyond their own websites. There are many tools to help evaluate your website, but my mission here is to help you find other high-quality web page content in your niche — as objectively scored by metrics — so you can learn from their success.

Marcus Tober‘s presentation at SEJ Summit Chicago identified two sites that represent the old keyword-research-only method versus the new semantic relevance for content creation. If you know of other websites that contrast old versus new content creation strategy, keywords versus holistic content, they are fantastic for understanding Google’s new ranking, which is no longer based on keywords.

Tober showed how eHow dominated keywords related to “how to boil eggs” before Google introduced the Hummingbird algorithm and how their entire website tanked in Google search results (SERP) in the past two years.

In contrast, chúng tôi was his example of a website meeting the criteria of the new “holistic” approach for content creation, and is killing it in the SERP for terms related to “boiled eggs,” at the same time eHow saw a stunning drop in ranking for the same related topics.

To go along with Tober’s examples, I use pages that rank from these sites for scoring with free tools. I also use a New York Times piece for some tests and a Wikipedia page for the last three. If the automated tools do their job, we should find poor scores for eHow and good scores for all others. Let’s see how the tools do.

Keyword Research Tools Find Related Phrases Ranking From a Webpage

There are three free tools that look at how tens of millions of keywords rank on Google and then find associated metrics for the web pages ranking on the keywords. Using their data, I can determine if Google is willing to rank many phrases or topics from one page. All of the co-ranking phrases for the pages have good search volume when examined with these tools, as it is the “most popular” keyword phrases they track.

Sure, links are super important, but the Search Metrics 2024 Study shows that technical and on page factors are just as important. If all other ranking signals are equal, a page with more comprehensive content should have more phrases ranking. To score competitor’s holistic content based on number of related ranking keyword phrases from a page, you might also find the “link equity” score from Moz or Ahrefs to see the extent to which links are helping multiple words from a page rank.


This new-ish website says it looks at 40,000,000 SERPs on a rolling basis. That puts them in a class with only two other tools offering a “free” or “freemium” tool, which update 10s of millions of keywords per month. The others are SEMrush (where I previously worked) and SypFu.

The company says they are “Indexing over 4 billion results across 64 million domains” in the US and UK. They do not specify how they define results. Free users can only see the breakdown of related results for the top ten, but they do show the number of related terms they’ve found for the page.

The software company updates 40 million keywords in the US (120 million including other country databases) and also updates on a rolling basis, over the course of the month.

Wow, a lot of variance with these results. Keep in mind, when tools use “popular keywords”, their lists can be quite different from each other. This is the main reason for the variance.

This company offers a free version and upgrades to paid plans (Note: I do consulting for this company). Their developers are experts in the machine learning space and created their own knowledge graph technology to score and locate gaps in topic relatedness for websites and webpages.

Users can simply copy/paste from a page with images and other media to drop into a field for their “blog research” tool. You can also examine scoring for holistic content for all pages under one domain, allowing you to figure out where there are “gaps” in your content.

Here’s a chart of how the pages scored.

Their “focus keyword” is the word or phrase you searched as the main topic for the page. On the Wikipedia page, I searched “Facebook,” so the number would be most useful when compared to a web page on the same topic. Related topics are mentioned at least once. So, one page on The Kitchn has more than both of the eHow pages combined. Content score is the number of topics, but it also counts how often a related topic was mentioned, up to a max of five points per topic.

For the eHow article about microwaving eggs, the most important topical gap found was a lack of related topics to eggs or cooking. There are only two phrases related to these, and microwaves is mentioned four times. Their egg cooking method is an unorthodox use of microwaves, and the first sentence of the article says “boil eggs in the microwave oven at your own risk because there is a chance that the eggs can explode. “

This tool judges readability. Tober points out that more general interest sites should be easier to read than academic or specialized sites, which makes sense. All three of the sites we are looking at in this article are general interest. The tool scores this largely on sentences being too long. This seems a bit subjective for an algorithmic determination given subtleties of what constitutes “general interest” versus reading level of users.

A new page was used here to see how content from another authoritative website know for comprehensive coverage would perform. A very important page one story from the New York Times was used which discussed the completion of the Iran Nuclear Deal the day it was announced.

The Kitchn had similar scores — I expect they would be better. They were about 2% lower on long sentences, but 2% higher on “passive language” and their final readability score was just one point different from eHow at 69.

The Times page has 2050 words. Average sentence length is 16 words, so 37% are scored as long. 13% of the language on the page uses passive language according to the tool. Overall Readability is 49/100 and requires the reader be above a 10th grade reading level. If The Times did poorly on “Readability,” take these results with a grain of salt. The site says: “This means some content is complex and likely inaccessible when skimmed. Aim for 60 or above on the Flesch readability scale. Simplify by using simpler words / phrases and shorter sentences.”

The tool finds the average number of words on a page, a sign of comprehensive coverage mentioned by the Search Metrics Report. They offer a plethora of  metrics, but most measure technical aspects of a webpage. Nibler can’t single out one page’s length, but it’s useful to get metrics for many pages alongside a single page. It crawls a sample of 10 pages linked from the page you provide.

Scoring the Scorers: How Accurate Are The Tools and Techniques?

The purpose of automated grading is usually to get around hands-on reviews of web pages for quick spot checks. I’ll break down results into three key metrics.

Semantically Relevant and Comprehensive Wording

eHow did significantly worse with the keyword research tools for related phrases, as well as for “topic gaps” from MarketMuse. This metric is the most difficult to judge, and perhaps the most important.

Our results are correlational for the keyword tools: Google could be using other ranking signals to put many phrases from the same page high in the SERP. There may well be a feedback loop here: sites with pages that are more comprehensive will tend to get more links because users judge comprehensive as good content. Search Metrics demonstrated that this correlation is strong across hundreds of websites.

MarketMuse is not using correlations. Results are based on their own “knowledge graph” data. Do their machine results match a more complex read of a page by a human to judge success? From the pages I’ve analyzed beyond this article, the answer is yes. Judge for yourself.

Long Form or Higher Word-Count Content

This is a straightforward score and Nibler shows the eHow pages are too short.

Easy to Read Content

This is a bit tough to judge for accuracy. We saw the reverse of what we would expect, with eHow doing best and the New York Times doing poorly! The problem here is context and a website’s goals.

Some websites benefit from being more challenging to read. For example, the complexity draws people to The Times and means time on site is longer—a good ranking signal. The heavy use of “passive language” is not what I’d expect. I’d want to do a manual inspection of the page and see why it does so poorly on this metric. Further, The Kitchn should not have come in below, though close, to eHow.

Final Thoughts

These increasingly crucial content scoring capabilities are behind much of Moz’s upcoming stand-alone software, “Moz Content.” The company plans the launch for December 2024, and it will be one of very few tools in this burgeoning space priced below enterprise level (actual pricing and a possible free version have not been announced yet).

Machines are challenged in their grading process — ultimately some very, very complex artificial intelligence can be employed to evaluate content on a website. But, and it’s a big BUT, these results show how powerful automation can be for relevance and comprehensiveness.

Tober mentioned the eHow pages are written based on keyword placement without enough regard to content usefulness. Reading one of their egg articles, I immediately frowned on the big focus of using a microwave to cook eggs — that might explode. How much thought really went into that piece?

Give computer algorithms a couple of years, and I bet they will be able to spot complex problems with on page logic. Perhaps Google is already able to find topic associations that are plain wrong?

Web Pages Loading Slowly? 11 Fixes To Try In Windows 10

The only thing worse than no internet is slow internet. Waiting for a web-page to load is not only a waste of your time, it might be completely unnecessary. 

Table of Contents

Define “Loading Slowly”

Does the web-page load completely, but simply takes a long time? Does text load in quickly, but images take a long time? Does the page never load at all? 

Someone might describe all of these situations as a web page loading slowly, but the root cause of each issue can be different. So try to figure out what part of the website loading process seems to be slower than usual. That can help point you in the direction of the correct tip to resolve the issue.

1. Check for Malware, Spyware and Viruses

This step is pretty much a given. If something is loading slowly on a computer, 99% of the time it’s because there is something in the background hogging up all the resources.

You’ll also want to make sure there is no malware running on your router, which is unlikely, but totally possible!

2. Check for Proxy Server

If used correctly, a proxy server can be a really handy way to protect your privacy or to circumvent internet restrictions. However, if incorrectly configured, a proxy server can cause all sorts of problems, one being “apparent” slow web page loading.

You’ll want to check your proxy server settings and make sure all your internet traffic isn’t being router through a hacker living in China. Malware and spyware installed on your computer also tend to enable a proxy server on your computer so that they can capture all of your internet traffic.

3. Run a Speed Test

The first thing you should check is whether your connection as a whole is slow or if it really is only affecting website traffic. The easiest way to do this is by searching for “speed test” in Google and then selecting the Run Speed Test button. This will take a few seconds and then show you how fast your connection is. 

The numbers should more or less add up to the speeds that you’ve been paying for. If the numbers are very low or much lower than normal, that’s a clue that the problem is not with your Windows 10 computer. If at all possible, run the speed test from your mobile phone or a different computer, to eliminate Windows 10 and your PC as the culprit.

This tip is relevant to situations where a specific site or set of sites aren’t working correctly. All you need to do is visit a website like chúng tôi and check if the site is down just for you or for everyone else. This simple check can save you a ton of frustration!

5. Reboot Everything

Before you panic, simply restart every link in the chain. That means restarting your computer, restarting your router and (if applicable) restarting the fiber connection point. 

This is a rather crude way to try and fix the problem, but since so many mysterious issues can be solved with a restart it’s a fairly quick and easy thing to try. If web pages are still loading slowly, then it’s worth putting in the effort to track the issue down, but if it’s rare then don’t worry about it and just perform the reboot ritual when it happens.

6. Check Your System Load

Web pages might not seem like something that takes a lot of system resources, but modern websites can actually put quite a load on your computer. So when a web page is performing badly, you should check how heavy the load is on your system:

Press Ctrl+Alt+Del

Select Task Manager

Select the Performance tab

On the performance tab, see whether your CPU, memory or disk are near 100% usage. If the system is under heavy strain, it could be affecting your website loading performance.

Close web browser tabs you’re done with. Close programs that you don’t need and generally try to lessen the system load to see if it helps.

7. Check Your Network Load

If your internet connection is shared with other people or other devices, the issue may actually be that one of those devices is hogging all the bandwidth! Modern WiFi routers do a pretty good job of making sure everyone gets a fair share of the available speed.

It can still happen however, so to make sure that it’s not a local bandwidth hog, disconnect all your other devices from the router and see if the issue resolves itself. 

8. Check For Cloud Syncing

Do you use DropBox, iCloud, Google One or any of the other popular cloud storage services? You might be seeing slow website speeds because of a large or ongoing file syncing operation. 

While cloud syncing of local files mostly consumes upstream bandwidth, if you or someone who shared folders in your cloud drive with you have moved large files into the cloud drive, it may start downloading to your system, depending on your settings. So disable or pause any ongoing cloud syncs to see if this is why web pages are loading so slowly.

9. Activate Metered Connection

Windows 10 can be really greedy with bandwidth every now and then. Especially if it’s downloading a large update in the background. 

If you suspect that updates are hogging your connection speed, try switching your WiFi or Ethernet connection to a metered connection. This will preserve bandwidth and your total data usage. With the added bonus that only critical updates are done automatically. In some cases, you may even want to stop updates altogether.

10. Flush Your DNS Cache

This tip is relevant mainly to situations where only certain websites seem to load slowly or not at all.

Your computer keeps a list of websites and their IP addresses in a cache to speed up access to frequently visited sites. The problem is that this information can become corrupt or outdated. If the IP address in the cache no longer works, you can try flushing the DNS cache. This will force your computer to get the correct IP address fresh from the server, instead of looking to local records for that information.

It’s also pretty easy to do:

Open CMD via the Start Menu

Type ipconfig /flushdns and press Enter

That’s it. You can head back to the browser and try to open the site again.

11. Try a Different DNS Provider

While we’re on the subject of DNS, you should know that not all DNS providers are made equal. Some are much faster at resolving your computer’s request for the IP address that goes with a particular URL. Most people are using the DNS server of their ISP, but if you shop around there are better choices. 

The easiest to recommend is Google’s DNS servers. Which are both safe and fast. You might also consider using a smart DNS which offers all sorts of neat tricks to supercharge your internet experience. Check our guide on how to change your DNS provider for more information.

Top 7 Free Tools For Creating Infographics

Infographics are a common way of presenting information graphically, using clear illustrations, diagrams, and charts supplemented by text and visual storytelling elements.

Instead of endless paragraphs of text, infographics are composed of vivid illustrations that reveal the details of even complex and confusing information in a matter of seconds. As a result, journalists, webmasters, copywriters, and other specialists need much less time to find a common language with the audience.

Unfortunately, not everyone has the design chops to create stunning visualizations: even experienced designers will find themselves in creative setbacks.

This is also one of the reasons why tools for this job are so popular. In other words, infographic tools specialize in providing pre-built templates, which you can either use as they are or further customize them to meet your requirements.

Infographics: A brief history lesson.

The idea of visual representation of information (and not necessarily statistical or analytical) has been resorted to since primitive times – knowledge between tribes and secrets between hunters were transmitted utilizing rock art in the Paleolithic era. And over time, the culture of transmitting unknown and excessively intricate data through illustrations has not disappeared but has only grown to an even greater extent.

But are infographics really such an all-powerful tool? Or are multicolored tables and charts with arrows all around just a passing trend? As designers and marketers (and also some psychologists like Steven Pinker) suggest, the popularity of infographics (or, in his case, the representation of information in visual format) has to do with several important social and psychological processes.

First, visual illustrations broadcast several types of information at once, like pre-formatted graphic images and text, which is easier for the brain to digest because the facts are presented clearly. As a result, what is seen is instantly combined with what is read and immediately put off in memory.

Having said that, infographics, in particular, can be extremely time-consuming. In fact, some of the world’s largest publications – The Guardian, The New York Times, etc. – will have separate departments specializing in visual content. But if you’re a blogger or an independent content creator – that might not be an option.

So, with that said, here are some of the best free infographic tools, which include templates, samples, and tips on making the best visual presentations of your content.

Mind the Graph is a graphic editor with design elements and specific tools for developing presentations, visual aids, and posters with diagrams. The site contains templates with illustrations, thematic icon sets, and digitized materials that can be used for visual presentation projects in any category.

Now, one thing to note about Mind the Graph is that they’re heavily focused on the scientific field; particularly, the templates and free assets are focused on things like the human body, science, biology, health, etc.

Who is it for: The gallery of templates and illustrations at Mind the Graph is aimed at those who are connected with science in any way: students, teachers, and even employees of laboratories, phytosanitary services, and research centers.

Pricing: The basic free subscription (Starter) severely restricts creative experimentation: many templates are unavailable, illustrations are blocked, and exporting virtual posters, charts and tables will be difficult. And yet Mind the Graph will definitely come in handy, at least for term papers and presentations at universities, as a platform with unlimited ideas. And for $7 a month, the possibilities will be even greater.


A unique collection of illustrations related to chemistry, biology, physics, and biology, and also to scientific research and weird myths.

The Mind the Graph editor available on the site is suitable for presentations, infographics, and even the layout of visual aids.

Starting with a student subscription, the service lets you work collaboratively and combine ideas in real-time.


Even a $7/month student subscription does not remove the limit on the number of illustrations available per month (no more than 10).

The free version of Mind The Graph exports files with a watermark and is only in JPG format (unsuitable for presentations).

But what makes Infogram stand out from its competitors is its Maps section, which is designed to make international and local maps. With hundreds of pre-built templates, you can kickstart your next infographic and be done with it in a few hour’s time.

Who is it for: Infogram specializes in visualizing statistics, but the service will suit those who want to create informative historical timelines in a single illustration and statistical data on an adjacent diagram.

Pricing: The free rate on the Infogram site is limited in functionality: for example, you cannot exchange ideas with the team and keep projects of 5 or more pages. The free plan also has some exporting limitations, with HD versions of your infographics limited to Web publishing only through their own platform. Additional features are available with a subscription starting at $19 a month.

Teamwork: Collaboration tools are available with a Business subscription. This includes the ability to collaborate together on any given design in a unified dashboard.


New content appears on the site almost every week: works are shared by professional designers and even analysts with experience.

The graphic editor on the Infogram site supports animated icons and illustrations and easily converts presentations into videos.


There are occasional difficulties with publishing content through the Publish section – some services are unavailable for unknown reasons;

Importing and exporting materials before purchasing a subscription is possible only in low resolution, not in all formats, and not in all cases.

VistaCreate is a visual graphics web editor with designer elements built specifically for building infographics and visual content for social media sites. No knowledge or specific skills are needed – all you need to do is choose the right template and replace the necessary parts, such as putting in the right brand name or supplementing the statistics.

Built-in collection of photos from stock-photo platforms, support for vector graphics, 10 gigabytes of storage space for projects;

100,000 design ideas for any purpose – publications, reports, or even theses and dissertations;

A set of tools for background editing, branding (style, icons, colors), and even developing custom stickers.


New content on the site does not appear very often, but even worse is the search – finding patterns (by keywords) is harder than it seems.

Piktochart is a visual editor with an intuitive design, crossed with an “informational content” builder. With the help of special templates, it’s possible to “assemble” brochures and posters, create illustrations for posts on social networks, and at the same time, turn lifeless statistics into fascinating infographics.

Piktochart also provides the means to prepare video presentations: the Video Tools feature includes animated screensavers, titles, and text templates. Turning figures and facts into videos have never been so easy!

Who is it for: Piktochart service is aimed at a diverse audience. Including those who have never built an infographic before (they provide templates and instructional guides), and experienced teams who want to work on infographics together.

Pricing: The basic version of Piktochart is available for free. Of the restrictions – only 100 megabytes of free space in the cloud storage, minimal technical support, and only one workspace. Fonts are limited, too – you can not go beyond the free collection without a subscription. Restrictions are removed for $29 a month.


Thousands of templates with icons, graphic elements (from lines to animated buttons), and even web layouts.

Built-in “branding” system that automatically arranges logos and adds a palette with branded colors.

Teamwork mode with chat and instant file sharing, the ability to assign roles and tasks.


The free plan limits the quality of importing and exporting graphic materials and does not work with some icon formats.

Venngage is a service for creating visual content: reports, posters, posters, and infographics. You can use ready-made templates or develop your own. The free version has a variety of templates, icons, and fonts, but the premium plan provides more features.

The service is suitable for companies of any orientation. Managers will be able to create visual reports and develop business presentations. SMM managers will have all the tools to make content for social networks. Designers can create posters and flyers and brand a company faster. Pictures for the diary and planner will help ordinary users to design records and visual references.

Who is it for: The templates presented on the Venngage site are suitable for beginners who make presentations and turn statistics into illustrations, as well as for professionals who design posters and develop promotional scenarios.

Pricing: The free version of Venngage is limited: you can’t upload materials in a suitable format, add fonts or access the premium icons, but it’s also impossible to access the collaboration features. That said, the majority of templates are accessible to free users. Additional privileges are unlocked for $16 per month.


Sophisticated infographic categorization: the site provides templates for both tables and charts.

Free choice of additional templates to work on business ideas, presentations, charts, and even certificates.

The built-in converter of graphics in PDF, PNG, and even HTML formats to use for email marketing.


Exports for free users are watermarked.

Cacoo is a creative platform designed for the collaborative development of diagrams and charts, visualization of statistical information, and even meetings and events with elements of strategic planning. It’s quite similar to what FigJam offers, or Figma in general, but with distinct diagramming features.

Who is it for: Cacoo is suitable for beginners: the platform offers a substantial collection of templates, added tutorial videos, and integrated a system of tips for those who are not yet familiar with data visualization. That said, the product is aimed at teams with distinct experience in creating diagrams and using them as part of a larger project. In other words, it’s also a great fit for experienced users.

Pricing: The free plan limits how much you can do; for example, use only 6 elements inside a template without access to additional style elements. Free users can only export in PNG format. The Pro plan ($6/month) removes restrictions and gives you access to exclusive blank templates and elements.

Teamwork: Even with the free plan, the Cacoo service does not prevent you from interacting with others in real time (up to a team of 6 people).


Thousands of templates with charts, tables, diagrams, and tools for visualizing business ideas and promotion strategies.

Built-in multi-user real-time collaboration system: dozens of people can work on a project simultaneously.

Cacoo service supports dozens of workspace organization plugins (Kanban and Scrum boards, task management, version control).


Additional tools for teamwork (for example, TypeTalk) are purchased separately from the standard subscription.

Creately is a digital workspace that can visualize information and handle non-standard business tasks, including strategic planning, analysis of statistics, and gathering creative ideas. The platform provides the means to visually build an entire project timeline, including drawing diagrams, placing footnotes, and forming tasks.

In addition to charts, diagrams, and visualization elements, Creately also handles alternative tasks – for example, providing access to a special editor with diagrams, tables, and expressive illustrations, assembled from blocks and statistical information. These can be built from scratch or by using templates, or you can combine multiple templates and take only the parts you need.

Who is it for: The service is not suitable for novice designers and marketers: instead of a traditional graphic editor, the platform focuses on diagrams and technical business-related mindmaps.

Pricing: Creately’s basic version is available in demo mode (no more than 3 jobs with a couple of folders and a limited number of graphics). But even without a subscription, it’s great to work with, and it’s also possible to collaborate with others on the free plan. The premium plans start at $5 a month.

Teamwork: Creately service provides teams and creative groups with tools to work together on projects: the site has a system of access rights, added roles, and credentials. There’s also support for interactive whiteboards (Kanban and Scrum) and collaboration features for interaction with colleagues in real-time.


The built-in graphic editor can even cope with non-standard tasks – for example, developing schemes and smart maps.
