Length: 75 character(s) (556 pixels)
HTML title tags appear in browser tabs, bookmarks and in search results.
It looks like your title tag is a little outside the ideal length. Since they are one of the most important on-page SEO elements you should make your title tags between 20 and 70 characters including spaces (200 - 569 pixels). Make sure each page has a unique title and use your most important keywords. For internal pages start your title tags with your most important keyword(s).
The meta description for bac.gov.bb is missing.
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.
Keep it short and to the point; the ideal meta description should be between 70 and 160 characters spaces included (400 - 940 pixels).
Ensure that each of your web pages have a unique meta description that is explicit and contains your most important keywords for each page. These keywords are especially important because they appear in bold when they match the user’s search query (See the Google Preview below).
Check your Google Search Console (Search Appearance > HTML Improvements) for any warning messages to identify meta descriptions that are too long/short or duplicated across more than one page.

Great, your website is structured using HTML headings (<H1> to <H6>).
Use your keywords in the headings and make sure the first level (<H1>) includes your most important keywords. Never duplicate your title tag content in your header tag.
While it is important to ensure every page has an <H1> tag, only include more than one per page if you're using HTML5. Instead, use multiple <H2> - <H6> tags.
This data represents the words and phrases that your page appears to be optimized around. We use what’s called “natural language processing" (NLP), which is a form of artificial intelligence that allows computers to read human language, to do this analysis.
The numbers next to each word or phrase represents how often we detected them and their variants on the page.
Are these the keywords you want to target for your page? If so, great! Track your site’s rankings in Google search results using WooRank’s Keyword Tool.
If these keywords aren’t relevant to your page, consider updating your content to optimize it for your target keywords.
We found 19 images on this web page.
11 ALT attributes are empty or missing.
Alternative text allows you to add a description to an image. Since search engine crawlers cannot see images, they rely on alternative text attributes to determine relevance to a search query. Alternative text also helps makes an image more likely to appear in a Google image search and is used by screen readers to provide context for visually impaired users.
It looks like you're missing alt text for several images on your page. Check the images on your website to make sure accurate and relevant alternative text is specified for each image on the page.
Try to minimize the number of alt text characters to 150 or less (including spaces!) to optimize page load times.
Warning, no 301 redirects are in place to redirect traffic to your preferred domain. Pages that load successfully both with and without www. are treated as duplicate content!
Right now either www.bac.gov.bb or bac.gov.bb is failing to resolve properly or returns a 404 error. You should set a preferred domain in Google Search Console and use a 301 redirect to divert traffic from your secondary domain.
A robots.txt file allows you to restrict the access of search engine crawlers to prevent them from accessing specific pages or directories. They also point the web crawler to your page’s XML sitemap file.
We checked bac.gov.bb/robots.txt and didn't find a robots.txt file. Use Google Search Console to submit and test your robots.txt file. You can also test individual pages to make sure Google isn't crawling any restricted files.
No sitemap found in your robots.txt.
We checked the robots.txt file for bac.gov.bb but couldn't find an XML sitemap. Specifying your XML sitemaps in your robots.txt file ensures that search engines and other crawlers find and access it easily each time they access your website.
Learn more about adding your XML sitemap to your robots.txt file here.
If you haven't created a sitemap yet, we recommend you generate one for your site and submit it through both Google Search Console and Bing Webmaster Tools. Usually, your XML sitemap would be found at bac.gov.bb/sitemap.xmlMake sure to only include the pages you want search engines to crawl, so leave out any that have been blocked in a robots.txt file. Avoid using any URLs that cause redirects or error codes and be consistent in using your preferred URLs (with or without www.), correct protocols (http vs. https) and trailing slashes.
Warning! We've detected parameters in a significant number of URLs.
Great, you are not using underscores (these_are_underscores) in your URLs.
Great, you aren't using underscores (these_are_underscores) in your URLs.
Google sees hyphens as word separators while underscores aren't recognized. So the search engine sees www.example.com/green_dress as www.example.com/greendress. The bots will have a hard time determining this URL's relevance to a keyword.

No mobile frameworks have been detected.
Length: 3 character(s)
Keep your URLs short and clean and avoid long domain names when possible.

Great, your website has a favicon.
Favicons are the small icons that appear next to your site’s name or URL in a browser. They can be displayed in the address bar, a browser tab title or bookmarks. Make sure it is consistent with your brand.
Here is a way one company used a special favicon to improve user experience.
Great, your website has a custom 404 error page.
