Despite the IIS SEO Toolkit product being launched months ago it’s not really got the attention it deserves, I wasn’t even aware of it until the A4u forum last month.

The toolkit was developed by Microsoft and runs in a very similar way to the automated tools that the MSN team uses to continually audit their millions of content pages so it’s an ideal way to test large scale websites and also carry out pre-flight SEO testing on development sites.

Thanks to some major issues with the search engine friendliness of content management systems that use asp and .NET a lot of SEO consultants hate working with Microsoft technologies but things are getting better with easier URL re-writing and now an automated SEO auditing system.

As you can see from the screenshot below even Blogstorm has a few errors to fix, 47,811 to be exact.



Here is the product information, go give it a try and let me know if you have more errors than me.

The IIS Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Toolkit helps Web developers, hosting providers, and Web server administrators to improve their Web site’s relevance in search results by recommending how to make the site content more search engine-friendly. The IIS SEO Toolkit includes the Site Analysis module, the Robots Exclusion module, and the Sitemaps and Site Indexes module, which let you perform detailed analysis and offer recommendations and editing tools for managing your Robots and Sitemaps.
