Your website on an iPhone
Your website on an iPad

The number of people using the Mobile Web is huge; over 75 percent of consumers have access to smartphones. ‪‬Your website should look nice on the most popular mobile devices.

Tip: Use an analytics tool to track mobile usage of your website.

Mobile Load Time

Low impact
Very Slow    Very Slow

Try to load your website on a mobile device and measure the download time. If your website takes more than five seconds to download on a mobile device, you will lose 74 percent of your audience!

Mobile usage is growing fast, especially in North America, where it will soon outpace desktop browsing usage. Make sure your site loads fast and that it looks nice on all types of mobile devices. Be sure to not use Flash, and keep photos and videos to a minimum.

Here are two useful tips from Google™ for optimizing your mobile site speed.

Mobile Optimization

Low impact Easy to solve

This web page is super optimized for Mobile Visitors

Mobile CSS

Mobile Redirection

Additional mobile optimization techniques:

Meta Viewport Tag

Apple Icon

Flash content

Optimize your website for Mobile browsing


WWW Resolve

Medium impact Easy to solve

This website with and without www redirects to the same page.


Great, your website directs www.cardekho.com and cardekho.com to the same URL.

Redirecting requests from a non-preferred domain is important because search engines consider URLs with and without "www" as two different websites.

Redirect non-www to www

URL Rewrite

Low impact Hard to solve

Perfect, your URLs look clean.


Great! You have clean (user-friendly) URLs which do not contain query strings.
Clean URLs are not only SEO-friendly but are also important for usability.

Rewrite your URLs and clean them up.

IP Canonicalization

Low impact Easy to solve



Good, your website's IP address is forwarding to your website's domain name.

To check this for your website, enter your IP address in the browser and see if your site loads with the IP address. Ideally, the IP should redirect to your website's URL or to a page from your website hosting provider.

If it does not redirect, you should do an htaccess 301 redirect to make sure the IP does not get indexed.


Medium impact Easy to solve

Great, your website has a robots.txt file.

A robots.txt file allows you to restrict the access of search engine robots that crawl the web and it can prevent these robots from accessing specific directories and pages. It also specifies where the XML sitemap file is located.

Click here to check your robots.txt file for syntax errors.

Add a robots.txt file

XML Sitemap

Low impact Easy to solve

Great, your website has an XML sitemap.

A sitemap lists URLs that are available for crawling and can include additional information like your site's latest updates, frequency of changes and importance of the URLs. This allows search engines to crawl the site more intelligently.

It is also good practice to specify your sitemap's location in your robots.txt file.

Add and Optimize your XML sitemap

Underscores in the URLs

Low impact Hard to solve


We have detected underscores (these_are_underscores) in this URL and/or in your in-page URLs. You should rather use hyphens (these-are-hyphens) to optimize your SEO.

While Google™ treats hyphens as word separators, it does not treat underscores as word separators.

Domain 1st Registered

Medium impact

6 Year(s) 0 Month(s) 12 Day(s) ago


Your domain is old enough to encourage search engines to give it a higher rank.

Domain age matters to a certain extent and newer domains generally struggle to get indexed and rank high in search results for their first few months (depending on other associated ranking factors).




Length: 8 character(s)


Keep your URLs short and avoid long domain names when possible.

A descriptive URL is better recognized by search engines. A user should be able to look at the address bar and make an accurate guess about the content of the page before reaching it (e.g., http://www.mysite.com/en/products).

Keep in mind that URLs are also an important part of a comprehensive SEO strategy. Use clean URLs to make your site more "crawlable" by Google™.

Resource: Search for a good domain name. If no good names are available, consider a second hand domain. To prevent brand theft, you might consider trademarking your domain name.

Great, your website has a favicon. Make sure this favicon is consistent with your brand.

Add a conversion form for repeat visitors. It could be used to sign up for a subscription, get an email address of a visitor or close an online sale. ‪‬‬Converting visitors into prospects/clients is probably the most important goal for your website.

After adding a conversion form to your site, it is important that you optimize your website to boost conversions.

Add a conversion form

Page Size

Low impact

175.7 KB (World Wide Web average is 320 Kb)


Two of the main reasons for an increase in page size are images and JavaScript files.

Page size affects the speed of your website; try to keep your page size below 300 Kb.

Tip: Use images with a small size and optimize their download with gzip.

Load Time

High impact Hard to solve

1.76 second(s) (99.89 kB/s)


Your website is too slow. Slow page load time is one of the biggest complaints of web users.

If the load time/Kb is short, it means your homepage is too big. If the load time/Kb is long, this could be due to a server problem, a network problem, poor code optimization (cache, Mysql queries, etc.), or a third-party issue (advertising codes, analytics codes, etc.).

Site speed is becoming an important factor for ranking high in Google™ search results.

Check out Google™'s developer tutorials for tips on how to to make your website run faster.

Tips for multilingual websites:

  • Specify the language code in the URL as well (e.g., "mywebsite.com/fr/mycontent.html").
