Microsoft offers up a free IIS7 Toolkit for SEO. I was sitting at my desk minding my own business when an email showed its face with a tiny link onboard. To my amazement, it was an email from my friend Kerry over at YourSEOSucks. At first, I couldn’t believe that Microsoft was offering this toolkit for free.

The IIS Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Toolkit helps Web developers, hosting providers, and Web server administrators to improve their Web site’s relevance in search results by recommending how to make the site content more search engine-friendly.

The IIS SEO Toolkit includes the Site Analysis module, the Robots Exclusion module, and the Sitemaps and Site Indexes module, which let you perform detailed analysis and offer recommendations and editing tools for managing your Robots and Sitemaps.

Here are just a few highlights of what the toolkit can do

  • Improve the volume and quality of traffic to your Web site from search engines
  • Control how search engines access and display Web content
  • Inform search engines about locations that are available for indexing
