The internet is full of free offers, free tools, free websites, free seo and a plethora of other free offers which in most cases sound too good to be true. Most of these offers are a scam of one type or another so the team at No BS SEO thought we would would point you to some free offers which are not only genuine but also very helpful and informative.
Keep in mind however that one size does not necessarily fit all and what may work for one website may well have a negative effect on another. Be sure always to check with your trusted web advisor before making any drastic changes to your website.
Sometime during the first half of 2015 Google are introducing a major change to their algorithm which will severely penalise websites which don’t display satisfactorily on mobile phones and iPads. The vast majority of websites will be affected by this change so if you haven’t already done so now is the time to check. The following link will give you the best indication of whether or not your website complies. If it doesn’t contact us and we will give you a free quote on making your website compliant. https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/

Duplicate content is a huge problem on the internet and as a rule it is dealt with very harshly by Google, Bing and many of the smaller search engines. If you are writing new or additional content for your website or blog it pays you to check and see if someone else has written the exact same material. There are exceptions to this rule, product descriptions on e-commerce sites for example but for the most part unique content will always rank better than copied / plagiarised content. Plagiarism Checker allows you to check snippets of your content before you publish to ensure that your content is unique.
Make sure to read the instructions first. http://smallseotools.com/plagiarism-checker and also http://copyscape.com/
Broken Links Checker
Broken links (aka 404 errors) on your website are a surefire way of damaging the optimisation of your website. If you have a link to an internal or external page on your website make sure it works!!!! W3 Validator will crawl your website and locate any broken or suspect links. Once these have been flagged our advice is to either delete those links to update them so that they work. Treat this action as a very high priority because I assure you that search engines do. http://validator.w3.org/checklink
