I was looking on google on 3 things to improve my website performance: gzip compression, leveraging browser cache and use of persistence connection. All 3 times you were the first result on google and it seems well deserved: good explanation, and the piece of .htaccess code I needed. Your website rocks! Quickly add some like buttons to it :)

New Mobile SEO Tool

The new Varvy mobile SEO tool is live now.
I think the best thing about it is that you can see all the mobile factors at once.
Tool reports if any page resources are blocked from Googlebot, provides the mobile friendly score and the performance score, displays redirects (and what type), mobile HTTP headers, relevant mobile markup such as viewport, vary headers, rel=canonical and rel=amphtml .
The in-depth guide to Google mobile optimization. See what your page looks like on mobile and learn how to make it look better and work better for mobile SEO.

Linkcount / nofollow tool
This is an updated and simplified version of my old (yet oddly very popular) linkcount / nofollow tool.
It is a quick useful tool to check nofollows on a page and also provides a hard link count of how many internal links vs external links that occur on a page.
Enter a page to see amount of external links, internal links and a list of nofollow links found on the page.

New Page speed tool

The new pagespeed tool beta is live.
If you are like me and have to examine many sites to find performance issues, you will appreciate this tool a great deal.
Speaking of appreciation, the tool uses the Google pagespeed API for several things and without that API I doubt I could have made such a cool tool.
This tool is in beta please let me know if you find issues or bugs.
Thank you.

I am launching a service that specializes in small site page speed and performance optimization with transparent pricing
- If you have a 10 page or smaller site and you want to be faster and more efficient than all your competitors:
1000usd to 2500usd
- Startup with a informational type site that is basically just selling something?
5000 to 7500 usd

What you get is a site that is faster than all of your competitors, conducted and overseen by me, a person who has 10+ years of performance and SEO experience.
Most people can't promise you that, but I can.

If you are interested in such services, and you already are one of my followers, contact me at pat@varvy.com to get details prior to the launch.

Varvy.com is not responsive at all and provided nothing. I used Varvy.com before without any problems and always get results for me to look at to know where the improvements are needed.  Moz doesn't have what Varvy has, breakdowns of many features allowing me to pinpoint what needs to be done in steps toward making site more mobile.
