SEO Site Checkup is the Swiss Army Knife of free SEO tools: along with on-page factors it checks loading speed, security, mobile-friendliness, and more.

I gave it a trial spin on one of our websites that was built around 1998 and only minimally updated since: IrelandTourismCentre.com , which looks like this:

To start the analysis, just go to https://seositecheckup.com, enter your site URL and click Checkup!:

After just a few seconds, the tool comes back with an overall grade (0-100) and counts of passed and failed checks and warnings:

  • Image ALT test

Behind that HOW TO FIX button is this helpful information:

Then, continuing, the tool shows more results of COMMON SEO tests:
