Lipperhey.com is an online web analyzing tool that can be used to perform SEO (Search Engine Optimization) for websites. The site offers both free and paid reports of its analysis and rates the website in four major categories – Technical, SEO, Popularity and Overall. A free report includes ratings in the four categories, the status codes returned by the website, incoming links found, and warnings about major problems found such as if the site is using iframes, which are not search engine friendly. It also includes the ranking of up to 3 keywords in the major search engines. A paid report delivers much more detail about the technical aspects of the website as well as what could be done to improve the search engine visibility of the site. A paid report also offers the ability to analyze more keywords for the site. The user has a dashboard, which shows a list of the sites they have analyzed. Analysis of a website can take from a few minutes to as much as an hour or more, depending on the size of the website. Once a site has been analyzed, the results can be viewed by selecting a link from the user's dashboard. The dashboard is where the user can order a paid report. In addition, the site offers a service that provides a comparison of the website to up to three of its competitors for given keywords. The site also offers a monthly service which automatically analyzes the website monthly and provides a report to the user. The user is notified via email when this report becomes available each month.
