BeamUsUp
Scan your website for common SEO errors

BeamUsUp is a free Java-based crawler which quickly scans a website and reports on common SEO issues: status error codes, description/ title too long or missing, missing headings, duplicate content and more.

The program really is free. There's no cost, no stupid restrictions unless you upgrade, no adware, no flashing "Donate" button, no browser windows popping up at the developer's site. You don't even have to install anyway (as long as you've got Java, anyway) - just download the executable and run it.

The interface looks dull, but it's straightforward in operation, and you'll immediately see how to use it. Type your starting domain, press Enter; that's it.

After parsing robots.txt and sitemaps.xml, BeamUsUp starts scanning the URL and any subfolders. By default it doesn't scan subdomains or external URLs, but you can change that from the settings.

The program uses 10 crawler threads by default, so performance is reasonable. Results begin to appear in real time, too, with a sidebar listing individual problems and the number of pages where they've been found ("WARNING: title.too_long(43)"). Clicking any of these problem types displays their associated links, and you can view more details about them in a click or two.

When you've finished, the results of the scan may be saved as a local CSV file, an XLS, or directly to a Google Drive spreadsheet.

Verdict:

BeamUsUp's interface looks dull and can be slow to respond, and we found the program wasn't good at identifying broken external links, at least with the default settings. But the scanner is quick, configurable, and does a reasonable job of analysing your local site, and as it's also no-strings free we'd say: give the program a try.

Unreal Engine 4.15.1

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
