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



Great, this page's ratio of text to HTML code is higher than 15 percent.

Although your text to code ratio is good, you can always improve it by adding more text content to your pages.

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
42,262    42,262

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.

This is an example of what your title and description will look like in Google™ search results.

WWW Resolve

Medium impact Easy to solve

Be careful. Your website without www doesn't redirect to www (or the opposite). It is duplicate content!


Be sure that www.grantwatch.com and grantwatch.com are not running in parallel.

Redirecting requests from a non-preferred hostname 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 for all traffic to your non-preferred domain.

Redirect non-www to www

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

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.

Underscores in the URLs

Low impact Hard to solve


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.


PR5    PR5

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.

Length: 10 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.

Also, conversion rates are far higher for websites that load faster than their slower competitors.


Low impact Easy to solve
