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.

Click here to check your robots.txt file for syntax errors.

Add a robots.txt file

XML Sitemap

Low impact Easy to solve

Missing

?

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.

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.
Clean URLs are not only SEO-friendly but are also important for usability.

Rewrite your URLs and clean them up.

Flash

Low impact Easy to solve

No

?

Good, no Flash content has been detected on this page.

Flash should only be used for specific enhancements. Although Flash content often looks nicer, it cannot be properly indexed by search engines. Avoid full Flash websites to maximize SEO.

This advice also applies to AJAX.

Use Flash content sparingly

Frames

Low impact Easy to solve

No

?

Great, there are no frames detected on this page.

Frames can cause problems on your web page because search engines will not crawl or index the content within them.

Avoid frames whenever possible and use a NoFrames tag if you must use them.

Check that none of your important content is within a Frame

Blog

Medium impact Hard to solve

We have not found a Blog on this website.

?

Your website does not have a blog.

In this tough and competitive internet marketing world content marketing rules. While publishing your content on other sites might be a good strategy, publishing it on your own site garners more benefits.

Starting a blog is a great way to boost your SEO and attract qualified visitors.

Use these great tips to boost the SEO performance of your blog.

Consider starting a blog

Mobile

Mobile Rendering

Low impact
Your website on an iPhone
Your website on an iPad
?

The number of people using the Mobile Web is huge; over 75 percent of consumers have access to smartphones. ‪‬Your website should look nice on the most popular mobile devices.

Tip: Use an analytics tool to track mobile usage of your website.

Mobile Load Time

Low impact
Very Fast    Very Fast
?

Try to load your website on a mobile device and measure the download time. If your website takes more than five seconds to download on a mobile device, you will lose 74 percent of your audience!

Mobile usage is growing fast, especially in North America, where it will soon outpace desktop browsing usage. Make sure your site loads fast and that it looks nice on all types of mobile devices. Be sure to not use Flash, and keep photos and videos to a minimum.

Here are two useful tips from Google™ for optimizing your mobile site speed.

Mobile Optimization

Low impact Easy to solve

Mobile CSS

Mobile Redirection

Additional mobile optimization techniques:

?
Optimize your website for Mobile browsing

Usability

URL

http://now.msn.com

Length: 3 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.

Custom 404 Page

Low impact Easy to solve

Your website does not have a custom 404 Error Page.

?

Apparently your site does not have a 404 Error Page - this is bad in terms of usability.

Take the opportunity to provide visitors with a beautiful and helpful 404 Error Page to increase user retention.

Customize the 404 error page

Conversion Forms

Low impact Easy to solve

We could not find a Conversion Form on this page.

?

Add a conversion form for repeat visitors. It could be used to sign up for a subscription, get an email address of a visitor or close an online sale. ‪‬‬Converting visitors into prospects/clients is probably the most important goal for your website.

After adding a conversion form to your site, it is important that you optimize your website to boost conversions.

Add a conversion form

Page Size

Low impact

369.4 KB (World Wide Web average is 320 Kb)

?

Two of the main reasons for an increase in page size are images and JavaScript files.

Page size affects the speed of your website; try to keep your page size below 300 Kb.

Tip: Use images with a small size and optimize their download with gzip.

Load Time

High impact Hard to solve

0.16 second(s) (2364.13 kB/s)

?

Your website is fast. Well done.

Site speed is becoming an important factor for ranking high in Google™ search results and enriching the user experience.

Resources: Check out Google™'s developer tutorials for tips on how to to make your website run faster.

Monitor your server and receive SMS alerts when your website is down with a web monitoring service.

Speed-up your website

Language

Low impact Easy to solve

Declared: English (United States)

Detected: English

?

Great, you have declared the language.

Make sure your declared language is the same as the language detected by Google™.

Tips for multilingual websites:

  • Define the language of the content in each page's HTML code.
  • Specify the language code in the URL as well (e.g., "mywebsite.com/fr/mycontent.html").

Declare the language used

Printability

Low impact Hard to solve

We could not find a Print-Friendly CSS

?

This is a special CSS style sheet which ensures that unnecessary interface designs and images are left out when printing pages from your site, saving the user a lot of ink.

It is just another way to provide a rich user-experience.

If you do not have a print style sheet yet, set one up.

Dublin Core

Low impact Easy to solve

Missing

?

?

It is important that your SEO efforts are not tarnished by spammy activities. Take care to avoid forum and blog spam and use best practices when sharing your content.

Technologies

Server IP

191.238.42.36

Server location: BRISTOW

?

Your server's IP address has little impact on your SEO. Nevertheless, try to host your website on a server which is geographically close to your visitors. Search engines take the geolocation of a server into account as well as the server speed.

Use DNSstuff for comprehensive reports on your server.

Technologies

?

Get to know the technologies used for your website. Some codes might slow down your website. Ask your webmaster to take a look at this.

Analytics

Low impact Easy to solve

Missing

?

Web analytics let you measure visitor activity on your website. You should have at least one analytics tool installed. It is also good to install one extra tool to have a confirmation of the results.

Analytics Tools: Google™ Analytics, Quantcast™, SiteCatalyst™, Piwik™, chartbeat™, Clicky™, ClickTale™, etc.

Doctype

HTML5

?

Declaring a doctype helps web browsers to render content correctly.
