Perfect! Your website with and without www redirects to the same page.
Redirecting requests from a non-preferred domain is important because search engines consider URLs with and without "www" as two different websites.
Good, your URLs look clean. Make them even more user-friendly by removing useless extensions.
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.
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.
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.
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.
