Ok, so the children aren’t quite singing in Christian rhyme but we’re almost there.

Today, I was made aware of Lynx the text based browser. Check out this link for a Windows based download. Basically it allows you to browse web sites in a purely text form allowing you to see what it is that those pesky robots see as they crawl your site.

It’s retro… and useful to ensure you aren’t making any obvious SEO mistakes with your page text or have complex script, flash or other objects obstructing the bots.
