What are the keys to making great SEO Tools?

I am very interested in SEO from a web development perspective.  I don’t feel the average (or even above average) web developers know enough to be good at it.  When I started my job at ClickStop, I thought I knew enough to “be dangerous”.  It turns out, I did – dangerous to my SEO.

That got me thinking – maybe I could offer some sort of test on my site to rank people’s pages, reflecting an SEO ranking…SEO Tools for Web Page Analysis.

There are a number of things that are “standard”:

  • Keyword to focus on
  • Is the keyword in the title
  • Is the keyword in the meta description
  • Does the keyword show up in the content – if so, how many times?

What things am I missing?  How would you build a service like this.

I’m thinking of building a REST service I can pass URL’s to and have it analyze the page sent…is this what you would do?  Please give me more suggestions in the comments.

Thanks,
tom

    That would be useful tool. SEO is one of those things it’s hard to quantify for the client. Something that assesses the page, then gives a brief explanation for the grade would be great.
