I'd like to bring the attention of the RapidWeaver community to an exciting new web utility called Nibbler.
Nibbler is a web-based utility, still in alpha, that tests web sites using objective criteria and assigns a score from 0 to 10. It just so happens, that in my limited testing, my RapidWeaver-based designs get a relatively high score of 6.7 to 9.0 compared to my clueless, Microsoft Windows-using, FrontPage2003-wielding, table-for-layout applying, Windows-1253 encoding, sorry excuse for competition.
You may visit my website http://www.milosweb.com
to view a couple of flash-based presentations on Nibbler test scores. The lowest score a website of mine has received thus far has been 6.7, and that's for an under-construction website! This score is also the highest my hapless competition could muster. I swear, I had nothing to do with it. It was all RealMac's RapidWeaver and the excellent theme designs of Henk Vrieselaar and seyDoggy I have been using, as well as the various plug-ins of the conscientious RapidWeaver developers.
It would be interesting to see how the websites of the rest of you score on Nibbler. I'd like to ask that all who read this message respond by publishing the URL of your website(s) with their associated Nibbler score(s), plus the website's age.
To start, I'd like to publish my highest scoring website:
www.milosweb.com - Nibbler: 9.0 - website age: 2006
At the same time, I'd like to invite all RapidWeaver theme and plug-in developers to chime in, with comments on how their themes and plug-ins are (or can be) optimized further for SEO and higher Nibbler scores.
RapidWeaver 4.2.2 and 4.5 beta (aka RW5) • Mac OS X 10.5.8 and 10.6.8 • iMac 3.06GHz and MacBook 13" Aluminum.
