Title Tag

LED Grow Lights | Black Dog LED

Length: 31 character(s)

?

Great, your title tag contains between 10 and 70 characters.

Make sure your title tag is explicit and contains your most important keywords.

Be sure that each page has a unique title tag.

Check the title of your website

Meta Description

Black Dog LED Grow Lights - from UV to NIR designed by growers for growers.

Length: 75 character(s)

?

Great, your meta description contains between 70 and 160 characters (spaces included).

Meta descriptions allow you to influence how your web pages are described and displayed in search results.

Ensure that all of your web pages have a unique meta description that is explicit and contains your most important keywords (these appear in bold when they match part or all of the user’s search query).

A good meta description acts as an organic advertisement, so use enticing messaging with a clear call to action to maximize click-through rate.

Check your Google™ Webmaster Tools account (Click 'Search Appearance', then 'HTML Improvements') to identify any issues with your meta descriptions, for example, they are too short/long, or duplicated across more than one page.

?
This is an example of what your Title Tag and Meta Description will look like in Google™ search results.

While Title Tags & Meta Descriptions are used to build the search result listings, the search engines may create their own if they are missing, not well written, or not relevant to the content on the page.

Title Tags and Meta Descriptions are cut short if they are too long, so it's important to stay within the suggested character limits.

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, never include more than one per page. Instead, use multiple <H2> - <H6> tags.

Add the important keywords in <H> headings

This table highlights the importance of being consistent with your use of keywords. To improve the chance of ranking well in search results for a specific keyword, make sure you include it in some or all of the following: page URL, page content, title tag, meta description, header tags, image alt attributes, internal link anchor text and backlink anchor text.

Be more consistent with your keywords

Alt Attribute

We found 15 images on this web page.

5 ALT attributes are empty or missing.

?

Good, most or all of your images have alternative text (the alt attribute).

‬‬Alternative text is used to describe images to give the search engine crawlers (and the visually impaired) more information to help them understand images, which can help them to appear in Google™ Images search results.

Set a name for all your images

Text/HTML Ratio

9.9%

?

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 as 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

8,435    8,435
?

This is the number of pages on your website that are indexed by search engines. It's important to aim to have all of your web pages crawled and indexed by the search engines, as this gives you more opportunity for your website to be found.

A low number (relative to the total number of pages/URLs on your website) indicates that there is an issue, whether it's due to a bad internal linking structure, or you're unknowingly preventing search engines from crawling your pages.

Make sure your website's XML sitemap is present and you have submitted it to the major search engines. Building backlinks to your website's internal pages will also help bots to discover, crawl and index them, while building authority to help them rank in the search engines.

Check Google™ Webmaster Tools under 'Google Index' and 'Crawl' to keep track of the status of your site's indexed/crawled pages.

Write more content

WWW Resolve

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!

?

Your website does not direct www.blackdogled.com and blackdogled.com to the same URL. It is crucial that you fix this.

Redirecting requests from a non-preferred domain is important because search engines consider URLs with and without "www" as two different websites.

You should first
set your preferred domain
in Google Webmaster Tools, then use a 301 redirect
to divert traffic from your non-preferred domain.

Redirect non-www to www

IP Canonicalization

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

?

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.

You can check for errors in your robots.txt file using Google Webmaster tools by selecting 'Robots.txt Tester' under 'Crawl'. This also allows you to test individual pages to make sure that Googlebot has the appropriate access.

Add a robots.txt file

XML Sitemap

?

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.

It's important to only include pages that you want the search engines to crawl, so avoid any that have been blocked via your robots.txt file. Check the URLs to ensure that none of them cause redirects or return error codes. This includes being consistent with your URLs, for example, including your preferred URLs (with or without www.), including the correct protocol (http or https) and making sure URLs all end with or without a trailing slash.

Add and Optimize your XML sitemap

URL Rewrite

Perfect, your 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.

Underscores in the URLs

Great, you are not using ‪underscores (these_are_underscores) in your URLs.

?
Great, you are not using ‪underscores (these_are_underscores) in your URLs.

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

Blocking Factors

Flash: No

Frames: No

?
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.

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.

Domain Registration

Created 5 years ago

Expires in 6 years

?
Domain age matters to a certain extent and newer domains generally struggle to get indexed and rank high in search results for their first few months (depending on other associated ranking factors). Consider buying a second-hand domain name.

Do you know that you can register your domain for up to 10 years? By doing so, you will show the world that you are serious about your business.

Consider starting a blog

Mobile

Mobile Rendering

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.

Usability

URL

http://blackdogled.com

Length: 11 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.

Favicon

Great, your website has a favicon.

?

Great, your website has a favicon. Make sure this favicon is consistent with your brand.

Resource: Check out this amazing idea for improving the user experience with a special favicon.

Add a Favicon

Custom 404 Page

Great, your website has a custom 404 error page.

?

Take advantage of the opportunity to provide a beautiful 404 Error Page for your visitors.

Customize the 404 error page

Conversion Forms

Great, we found a Conversion Form on this page.

?

There are different types of conversions, such as: getting the email address of your visitors, requesting your visitors to fill in a form or closing an online sale. ‪‬‬Converting visitors into prospects/clients is probably the most important target for your website. So, it is important that you optimize your website to boost conversions.

Add a conversion form

Above the Fold Content

Place the most important content above the fold line.

Fold line

?
When designing your homepage, make sure that your most important content is placed above the fold (the top section, which is visible without scrolling).

Google's 'Page layout algorithm' was built around feedback from users after many complained that they were having difficulty finding the content that was relevant to their search queries when arriving on webpages.

This means that Google pays attention to your 'above the fold' content, so try to add useful content and avoid including too many ads.

Tip: Check Google Analytics to find out what the most common screen resolutions are among your site visitors.

Page Size

55.5 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

1.91 second(s) (29.04 kB/s)

?

Your website is too slow. Slow page load time is one of the biggest complaints of web users.

If the load time/Kb is short, it means your homepage is too big. If the load time/Kb is long, this could be due to a server problem, a network problem, poor code optimization (cache, Mysql queries, etc.), or a third-party issue (advertising codes, analytics codes, etc.).

Site speed is becoming an important factor for ranking high in Google™ search results.

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 website monitoring tool.

Speed-up your website

Language

Declared: English

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

Great, we found a CSS for a Print-Friendly page.

?

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.

Structured Data Markup

No Structured Data Markup has been detected

?
Structured Data Markup is used to generate Rich Snippets in search engine results. It is a way for website owners to send structured data to search engine robots; helping them to understand your content and create well-presented search results.

Google™ supports a number of rich snippets for content types, including: Reviews, People, Products, Businesses and Organizations, Recipes, Events , Videos, and Music. If your website covers one of these topics, then we suggest that you annotate it with Schema.org using microdata.

?

No evidence of phishing and/or malware has been detected.

Are you a spammer?

Technologies

Server IP

199.46.124.172

Server location: Huntsville

?

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.

Speed Tips

Warning: your website’s speed could be slightly improved.

Perfect, your server is using a caching method to speed up page display. 

Perfect, your website doesn't use nested tables.

Too bad, your website is using inline styles.

Too bad, your website has too many CSS files (more than 4).

Too bad, your website has too many JavaScript files (more than 7).

Too bad, your website does not take advantage of gzip.

?

Website speed has a huge impact on performance, affecting user experience, conversion rates and even rankings. ‪‬‬By reducing page load-times, users are less likely to get distracted and the search engines are more likely to reward you by ranking your pages higher in the SERPs.

Conversion rates are far higher for websites that load faster than their slower competitors.

See Google's PageSpeed Insights Rules for more information on how to improve each of the elements in this section.

Analytics

?

Web analytics let you measure visitor activity on your website. You should have at least one analytics tool installed, but It can also be good to install a second in order to cross-check the data.

Popular Analytics Tools Include: Google™ Analytics, Quantcast™, AdobeAnalytics™, Piwik™, chartbeat™, Clicky™, ClickTale™, etc.

W3C Validity

Invalid: 100 Errors, 100 Warning(s)

?

Use valid markup that contains no errors. Syntax errors can make your page difficult for search engines to index.

To find the detected errors, run the W3C validation service, or check Validator.nu to make sure you don't miss an error.

W3C is a consortium that sets web standards.

Fix the errors in the code syntax

Doctype

HTML5

?

The Doctype is used to instruct web browsers about the document type being used. For example, what version of HTML the page is written in.

Declaring a doctype helps web browsers to render content correctly.

Encoding

Great, language/character encoding is specified: UTF-8

?

Specifying language/character encoding can prevent problems with the rendering of special characters.

Directory Browsing

No

?

Great! Your server prevents visitors from browsing your directory by accessing it directly, this is excellent from a security standpoint.

Server Signature

No

?

Good, your server signature is off. This is excellent from a security standpoint.

SSL Secure

Your website is SSL secured (HTTPS), but the Common Name is set to undefined.

Your website's URLs redirect to HTTPS pages.

Your headers are not properly set up to use STS.

The SSL certificate expires in 9 months.

The certificate issuer is GlobalSign nv-sa.

?
Modern websites tend to be SSL secured (HTTPS) as it provides an extra security layer while logging in to your Web Service. In 2014, Google™ announced that an HTTPS (vs HTTP) website would receive an extra boost in their ranking.

While switching to HTTPS, make sure your site remains optimized and see to it that your website will still run quickly. Follow these best practices for a smooth transition:
  • Use a serious issuer to purchase your SSL certificate
  • Redirect all of your HTTP pages to the HTTPS version of your website
  • Use a Security Token Service (STS) in your headers
  • Renew your SSL certificate every year, before it expires
  • Make sure that all of your content (CSS, etc.) is linked to HTTPS
  • Update your XML sitemap to ensure the URLs include HTTPS and update the robots.txt file to reference this version
  • Register the HTTPS website in Google & Bing Webmaster Tools
