Text/HTML Ratio

Medium impact Hard to solve

21.1%

?

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

WWW Resolve

Medium impact Easy to solve

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

?

Great, your website directs www.highwire.com and highwire.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

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
?

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.

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

Good, the URLs look clean.

?

Great! You have clean (user-friendly) URLs which do not contain query strings.

Rewrite your URLs and clean them up.

URL

http://highwire.com

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.
