Missing

?

Your meta description should contain between 70 and 160 characters (spaces included).

Meta descriptions allow you to influence how your web pages are described and displayed in search results. A good description acts as a potential organic advertisement and encourages the viewer to click through to your site.

Ensure that your meta description is explicit and contains your most important keywords. Also, each page should have a unique meta description relevant to the content of that page.

Headings

Low impact Easy to solve

Missing

?

Your website does not use HTML headings (<H1> to <H6>) or it has far too many HTML headings.

Use your keywords in the headings and make sure the first level (<H1>) includes your most important keywords.

For more effective SEO, use only one <H1> tag per page.

Add the important keywords in <H> headings

Images

Medium impact Easy to solve

We found 5 images on this web page.

5 alt attributes are empty or missing.

  • https://careers.un.org/DesktopModules/manageStaffMember/GetImage.aspx?ImageId=363&SmallImage=YES&Lang=en-US
?

Alternative text (the alt attribute) is missing for several images. Add alternative text so that search engines can better understand the content of your images.

Remember that search engine crawlers cannot actually "see" images, so the alternative text attribute allows you to assign a specific description to each image.

Alternative text describes your images so they can appear in Google™ Images search results.

Check the images on your website and make sure ‪‬‬effective alternative text is specified for each image.

Restrict the number of characters in alt text to 150, including spaces, and minimize the size of images to optimize your website's page load times.

Set a name for all your images

Text/HTML Ratio

Medium impact Hard to solve

9.1%

?

This page's ratio of text to HTML code is below 15 percent, this means that your website probably needs more text content.

A ratio between 25 and 70 percent is ideal. When it goes beyond that, the page might run the risk of being considered spam.

As long as the ‪‬‬content is relevant and gives essential information, it is a plus to have more of it.

Write additional content with more keywords

Indexed Pages

Medium impact Hard to solve
744    744
?

This is the number of pages on your website that are indexed by search engines. The more pages that are indexed, the better, as this offers more opportunity for your website to be found.

A low number (relative to the total number of pages/URLs on your website) probably indicates that your internal link architecture needs improvement and is preventing search engines from crawling all of the pages on your website. You might want to create/check your site's XML sitemap and submit it to the major search engines. You must also build backlinks to your site's internal pages to help search bots crawl and index your web pages.

Check Google™ Webmaster Tools under Health and Index Status, to keep track of the status of your site's indexed pages.

Write more content

WWW Resolve

Medium impact Easy to solve

This website without www doesn't redirect to www. It is duplicate content!

?

Your website does not direct www.careers.un.org and careers.un.org to the same URL. It is crucial that you fix this.

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

Once your preferred domain is set, use a 301 redirect to re-route all traffic from your non-preferred domain.

Redirect non-www to www

IP Canonicalization

Low impact Easy to solve

Yes

?

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.

Robots.txt

Medium impact Easy to solve

Missing

?

Your website doesn't have a robots.txt file - this can be problematic.

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

Missing

?

Your website does not have an XML sitemap - this can be problematic.

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.

We recommend that you generate an XML sitemap for your website and submit it to both Google™ Webmaster Tools and Bing Webmaster Tools. It is also good practice to specify your sitemap's location in your robots.txt file.

Add and Optimize your XML sitemap

URL Rewrite

Low impact Hard to solve

Warning! We've detected parameters in a significant number of URLs.

?

Consider rewriting your URLs.

Your site's URLs contain unnecessary elements that make them look complicated. A URL must be easy to read and remember for users. Search engines need URLs to be clean and include your page's most important keywords. Clean URLs are also useful when shared on social media as they explain the page's content.

Rewrite your URLs and clean them up.

Underscores in the URLs

Low impact Hard to solve

No

?
Great, you are not using ‪underscores (these_are_underscores) in your URLs.

While Google™ treats hyphens (these-are-hyphens) as word separators, it does not treat underscores as word separators.

PageRank

PR8    PR8
?

Your website's PageRank is impressive.

PageRank™ (commonly called PR) is a link analysis algorithm used by Google™ to assess the popularity/authority of a website. The PageRank goes from 0 to 10. New websites start at PR0 and authority websites, like Twitter.com, have a PR10.

Websites with a high PageRank™ are crawled more frequently and their outgoing links have more passing juice.

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.

Make sure that your website is prepared for mobile browsing.
These are the different aspects that can be optimized for mobile users:

Optimize your website for Mobile browsing

Usability

URL

http://careers.un.org

Length: 2 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.

Favicon

Medium impact Easy to solve

No

?

Your website does not have a favicon.

Add a favicon to improve your brand's visibility.

As a favicon is especially important for users bookmarking your website, make sure it is consistent with your brand.

Add a Favicon

Custom 404 Page

Low impact Easy to solve

Your website does not have a custom 404 Error Page.

?

Apparently your site does not have a 404 Error Page - this is bad in terms of usability.

Take the opportunity to provide visitors with a beautiful and helpful 404 Error Page to increase user retention.

Customize the 404 error page

Conversion Forms

Low impact Easy to solve

We could not find a Conversion Form on this page.

?

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

Above the Fold Content

Low impact

Place the most important content above the fold line.

Fold line

?
When designing your homepage, make sure that your most important content is placed above the fold (the top section, which is visible without scrolling).

Tip: Check Google Analytics to find out what the most common screen resolutions are among your site visitors.

Page Size

Low impact

49.3 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

0.69 second(s) (71.42 kB/s)

?

Your website is fast. Well done.

Site speed is becoming an important factor for ranking high in Google™ search results and enriching the user experience.

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

Speed-up your website

Language

Low impact Easy to solve

Declared: Missing

Detected: English

?

You have not specified the language. Use the META Language Attribute to declare the intended language of your website.

Tips for multilingual websites:

  • Define the language of the content in each page's HTML code.
  • Specify the language code in the URL as well (e.g., "mywebsite.com/fr/mycontent.html").

Declare the language used

Printability

We could not find a Print-Friendly CSS

?

This is a special CSS style sheet which ensures that unnecessary interface designs and images are left out when printing pages from your site, saving the user a lot of ink.

It is just another way to provide a rich user-experience.

If you do not have a print style sheet yet, set one up.

Company overview
What we do:

The United Nations is an international organization founded in 1945 and committed to maintaining international peace and security; developing friendly relations among nations; promoting social progress, better living standards and human rights.

Due to its unique international character, and the powers vested in its founding Charter, the Organization takes action on a wide range of issues, and provides a forum for its 193 Member States to express their views, through the General Assembly, the Security Council, the Economic and Social Council and other bodies and committees.

The work of the United Nations touches every corner of the globe and focuses on a broad range of fundamental issues, like sustainable development, protection of the environment and refugees, disaster relief and mitigation, counter terrorism, as well as disarmament and non-proliferation.

In September 2000, building upon a decade of major United Nation conferences and summits, world leaders came together at the Organization’s Headquarters in New York and adopted the United Nations Millennium Declaration, a commitment by nations to a new global partnership to reduce extreme poverty which also set out a series of time-bound targets - with a deadline of 2015 - that have become known as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

These eight goals are:


Eradicate extreme Poverty
Achieve universal primary education
Promote gender equality and empower women
Reduce child mortality
Improve maternal health
Combat HIV and AIDS, malaria and other diseases
Ensure environmental sustainability
Develop a global partnership for development.


Que faisons-nous?

L’Organisation internationale des Nations Unies a été fondée en 1945, après la Seconde Guerre mondiale, dans le but de maintenir la paix et la sécurité internationales; développer des relations amicales entre les nations et de promouvoir le progrès social, instaurer de meilleures conditions de vie et accroître le respect des droits de l’homme.

De par son statut international unique et les pouvoirs que lui confère sa Charte fondatrice, l’Organisation peut prendre des mesures pour résoudre un grand nombre de problèmes. En outre, elle offre à ses 193 États Membres une tribune pour exprimer leurs opinions dans le cadre de l’Assemblée générale, du Conseil de sécurité, du Conseil économique et social et des autres organes et comités.

L’activité des Nations Unies couvre toutes les parties du globe et porte sur un grand nombre de questions fondamentales, comme le développement durable, la protection de l’environnement et des réfugiés, les secours en cas de catastrophe et les efforts d’atténuation des catastrophes, la lutte contre le terrorisme, ainsi que le désarmement et la non-prolifération. Elle intervient aussi en faveur de la promotion de la démocratie, des droits de l’homme, de la gouvernance, du développement économique et social, de la santé publique, du déminage, de l’expansion de la production alimentaire et s’occupe encore de bien d’autres questions très importantes en vue d’atteindre ses objectifs, en s’attachant à coordonner les actions menées pour tenter de créer un monde plus sûr pour les générations présentes et futures.

En septembre 2000, la plus grande assemblée de dirigeants mondiaux jamais réunie au Siège des Nations Unies, à New York, a adopté la Déclaration du Millénaire, qui engage les nations signataires à participer à un nouveau partenariat mondial pour réduire l'extrême pauvreté et fixe une série d'objectifs à atteindre à la date limite de 2015, et appelés objectifs du Millénaire pour le développement (OMD).

Ces OMD, au nombre de huit, visent à:

Réduire l'extrême pauvreté et la faim
Assurer l'éducation primaire pour tous
Promouvoir l'égalité des sexes et l'autonomisation des femmes
Réduire la mortalité infantile
Améliorer la santé maternelle
Combattre le VIH/sida, le paludisme et d'autres maladies
Préserver l'environnement
Mettre en place un partenariat mondial pour le développement
