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.

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.

Text/HTML Ratio

Medium impact Hard to solve

19.4%

?

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

Google™

2,400    2,400
?

This is the number of pages on your website that are indexed by Google™.

The more pages that search engines index, 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 Google™. You must also build backlinks to your site's internal pages to help Google™ 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.
