I've been using it since about May and have been very pleased with it, the only gripe I have is that it doesn't always play well with the URL rewriting module, flagging some rewritten links as invalid.
Use Live HTTP Headers to check the response codes. This sounds like a server issue.
Not working. facing problems with OS. I am using XP SP2.
Strike 1 - forcing me to install IIS when I have no other use for it.
just like some programs force you to install java when you have no other use for it.
Strike 3 - I found one recommendation I consider Google unfriendly.
As noted in other threads we should be caring LESS about what we think the goog likes.
With Goog bringing in 70% of my search visitors and Yahoo/Bing splitting most of the rest I'm still inclined to follow G's doctrine first. I'm not about to make my site friendly for Bing at the expense of Google, they are still in different leagues, so I was disappointed to be advised(though not surprised) by this tool to make one such change.
edit: I'd post the exact advice if it wasn't probable that doing so would send the thread into an SEO debate. I'm just stating why my personal decision is to pass on this, for now.
That was because in June, Microsoft sucked. Isn't it amazing how much can change in a few month? (Actually, I don't think MS has changed at all...)
when it can't compete with google? On what basis? its gaining market share everyday and its search is great! I can't remember the last time i used google.
