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.

Text/HTML Ratio

Medium impact Hard to solve

8.8%

?

This page's ratio of text to HTML code is below 15 percent, this means that your website probably needs more text content.

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™

57,800    57,800
?

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.

WWW Resolve

Medium impact Easy to solve

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

?

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

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

Warning! We've detected parameters in a significant number of URLs.

?

Consider rewriting your URLs.

Your site's URLs contain unnecessary elements that make them look complicated. A URL must be easy to read and remember for users. Search engines need URLs to be clean and include your page's most important keywords. Clean URLs are also useful when shared on social media as they explain the page's content.

Rewrite your URLs and clean them up.

Underscores in the URLs

Low impact Hard to solve

Yes

  • http://teamtreehouse.com/password_resets
?
We have detected underscores (these_are_underscores) in this URL and/or in your in-page URLs. You should rather use hyphens (these-are-hyphens) to optimize your SEO.

While Google™ treats hyphens as word separators, it does not treat underscores as word separators.

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.

URL

http://teamtreehouse.com

Length: 13 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.
