Text/HTML Ratio

Medium impact Hard to solve

14.6%

?

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.

Indexed Pages

Medium impact Hard to solve
85,044    85,044
?

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.

IP Canonicalization

Low impact Easy to solve

?

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

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

About
Buy discount git cards for top merchants and save up to 59% on over 15K discount gift cards.
Company overview
Gift Card Granny is the most enigmatic member of The Frugals family: A kindly old lady with bifocals, a walker and one mean snickerdoodle recipe. But appearances can be deceiving. Gift Card Granny, the wisest of the brood, devised an ingenious way to defeat overspending with discount gift cards. As she aged, Gift Card Granny realized plastic can be used for more than birthdays and Christmas. The frugal fanatic experimented until she had a breakthrough: Granny discovered gift cards sold at a discount can be used for such everyday purchases as groceries, gas and clothing.
Description
The comparison marketplace is the culmination of Gift Card Granny's money-saving wisdom. It's a cozy place to buy, sell and trade gift cards. Shoppers are guaranteed the deepest discount and protected from Granny's arch-nemesis: buyers remorse. Here you'll find over 15,000 cards from hundreds of merchants in one convenient location. Cards culled from one of six trusted resellers can regularly be found for up to 50% off face value. Like many superheroes, the marketplace has a sidekick: The "sell" section is dedicated to preventing gift cards from becoming dust collectors. Shoppers who no longer want a card can sell it through the website for up to 90% cash back. The comparison function is a simple way to find the best offer from any of the six resellers. The Gift Card Alerts feature is the gray-haired financiers latest endeavor. You can sign up for e-mails alerts, select the gift cards you want and receive an electronic reminder. Every time a coveted new card goes on sale, you'll be among the first to know. Your selection can be changed at any time using an intuitive point-and-click menu.
