Xinu: Pagerank, Alexa, Technorati and More

Here’s one tool that I’m sure any webmaster or blogger would definitely love. It’s called Xinu.

What is Xinu? It’s a tool that lets you check your website or blog’s PageRank, Alexa rank, backlinks, Technorati rank, feed subscribers, domain validation/diagnostics and many more. Btw, if you haven’t noticed the name comes from Unix spelled backwards.

Xinu also lets you save the results in a PDF file through it’s reporting tool. This has been tested on the following browsers: IE7, Firefox 2, Opera 9.x and Netscape 9.

Xinu lets you check the following site/blog elements:

  • Screenshot
  • Diagnosis
  • Domain
  • Ranking
  • Syndication
  • Social Bookmarks
  • Validation
  • Indexed Pages
  • Backlinks

You can check just one or all of the elements above. It’s totally up to you.

I love Xinu! Now, I don’t have to go to different pages to check certain ranks and stats. I also like the Diagnosis element which helps you fix site details like domain name, title, keywords, description and more. It gives comments and recommendations on what you can do to improve it.

Although there’s one thing that I think Xinu should improve and thats the accuracy of the screenshot. When I checked JaypeeOnline, the screenshot showed the Kill Bill’s Browser post that I published on June 13. It would be nice if it uses the most recent screenshot. Overall, it’s still a very cool tool!

Btw, Xinu is skinned by Pinoy blogger and programmer AJ Batac.

Try out Xinu now!

  1. this is yet another amazing aggregator. i might try it :) thanks for posting about this. managing so many list of sites to check on specific things can be tiresome.

  2. yes, I've tried it. Good stuff. My blog was pretty good. I need to work on my SEO a little more though… and I did have a couple validation problems. About 7.

  3. wow. this is great.

    OT: How did you get so many google ads to show up on the index? Did they change the terms? I thought they only allowed 3 ads??

  4. @aj – You’re welcome!

    I see. How much is it to subscribe to Snap? Or is it free? Anyways, it’s not much of a big deal but of course it would better if the screenshot is the most recent one. :)

  5. thanks for the mention! :smile:

    the screenshot is provided by Snap.com. i think you need to subscribe to their service and request update of your screenshot. sometimes it updates on its own.

    :cool:
