Hi Guys

Just thought I'd share this:

FREE SEO Toolkit from Microsoft

Seem pretty easy to use and informative.

Corrected a few issues with my site which I wasn't aware of!

Hope it helps someone.

It certainly looks like a useful tool. Thanks for drawing our attention to it.

It's worth keeping in mind that it's a server-based product and is specific to IIS. Nothing wrong with that of course, except to note that it won't be suitable for Unix-hosted sites, or for people who don't host their own sites. (At least, that's my understanding, based on a quick glance at the specs.)

Hi Mate

It seems to work well with the sites I am monitoring which are on Linux based servers and not stored locally in IIS folders.

Maybe the IIS title is a bit misleading but I think it just needs the IIS component on the local client to run.

I'm using it successfully on a Vista client.

Just add the http://www prefix to any site you want to analyse.

I'm sure you're right. I was possibly confused by the statement that it "integrates into the IIS Management Console". That doesn't of course mean that the site you're analysing has to run under IIS.
