What WooRank Tells about a Website

There are a lot of tools which provide similar services but WooRank outperforms them all. This is because WooRank provides so many details that you need not use different tools or services  anymore. Following are some of the main features that WooRank provides:

1. Visitor Information: WooRank shows an average estimate of hits which a website receives during one month. You also learn about the Alexa and Compete ranks of the website and the daily traffic trends.

2. Content details and popular pages: WooRank tells you how many pages have been indexed by Google and a list of the popular pages of a website. I found that the site links are shown as popular pages but nevertheless, you can have a brief idea on what are the important sections of a website.

3. On site and off site SEO: WooRank lists the meta information of the index page so you learn about the important keywords and meta data information of a domain. Each meta data is accompanied by the length of characters  with subsequent judgements. You also  get a glimpse on the  following:

  • number of backlinks pointing to the root of the domain.
  • number of .gov and .edu backlinks.
  • the last crawl date by Google.
  • whether listed in DMOZ or Yahoo directory.

4. Social media presence: WooRank outlines a general report on the social media presence of the website. It shows how many posts are digged, how many pages bookmarked in Delicious and how many Twitter backlinks you have got. All the RSS feeds provided by the website are shown hierarchically.

See the Whois Information Of any Domain from Desktop

The Whois information of a domain tells us the following important things:

  • The registrar of a domain.
  • The IP address and name servers of a domain.
  • The date when the domain was created
  • The contact information of the domain owner and his address.

If you need to perform frequent Whois lookups of different domains and then it may become necessary to use a desktop tool rather than rely on any third party websites. Whoislookup is a nice little tool for Windows which can be used to find the Whois information of a domain from desktop.

Here is how the interface of the application looks:

To see the Whois information of a domain, enter the URL in the domain name field and press “Lookup”. The entire Who is information of the domain will be available inside the application window.

As you can see, the application shows the Whois information of the domain in the left frame while the website loads in the right. All the domain names are saved in the “History” pane so that you can quickly repeat the Whois lookups at a later time. You can also use this tool to check whether a domain is available to buy or not.

The application is portable and you can use it on multiple computers from a removable drive without installation. It’s compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.

The application is a small and useful tool for bloggers and webmasters.However, the ability to save the Whois information in a text file would be perfect.
