How often do you use tools to QA your site for updates you should make?
There are a variety of tools folks can use to review their websites and find improvements that they should make. Periodically, we use tools like screaming frog, Google webmaster tools and SEOmoz to identify issues to fix with our sites. We're in the process of doing that now, so we started to wonder how often other webmasters used tools to examine and find issues to address on their websites. Please share your favorite tools, and what you look for when you use them as well. View poll
