Stop Words Tab:

Words that are usually not counted towards any Keyword counts due to the nature of the word are considered Stop Words. An example of Stop Words would be Articles or some Adjectives that are not considered Pronouns. These words do not describe anything specifically distinct to the web page. Words such as: the, a, an, and, to, etc. are considered Stop Words as they are just filler words rather than real content. Website Insight starts with a default Stop Words library that can be edited as you see fit. What this library of words does tell the program which words should be ignored for SEO. Words Ignored for SEO are words that are not counted towards a compilation of Key Words for your page(s).

Site Keywords / Words

The settings here are applied to both the Site Keyword section and the Words section of Website Insight.

Browser Agent:

When you visit a web page, your browser sends the user-agent string to the server hosting the site that you are visiting. This string indicates which browser you're using, its version number, and details about your system, such as operating system and version. The web server can use this information to provide content that is tailored for your specific browser. This is a great way to test your responsive design to see if you have missed anything for any particular viewport size.

There are hundreds and hundreds of user agent strings if you want to get into the thick of things.
