A Simple Source Viewer to help with SEO

Technology Blog

I’ve been involved for a while in teaching the basics of SEO to local business people here in North Devon. Recently, while revising my course notes I decided that to help my trainees get a better grasp of on-site SEO it would be useful to be able to show them the HTML source of pages, colour-coded in such a way that the important elements for SEO purposes would be more obvious

I looked around for a suitable tool but couldn’t find anything that quite matched what I had in mind, so I very quickly wrote one: Sourcery, an HTML Source Viewer for SEO. It’s not perfect, but it does a reasonable job of highlighting those elements which are most important for SEO purposes.

If you find it useful or have any suggestions for enhancements please comment here.

    Hi Alfred, cool tool! Mind sharing the source? I’ve got some improvements: i’d make it an option to clean out all the script tags, and just show a count somewhere of the total number of scripts, and do so for several tags…
