Length: 12 character(s) (100 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).
Length: 13 character(s) (81 pixels)
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 contain between 70 and 160 characters - spaces included (600 - 940 pixels).
Ensure that each of your web pages have a unique, straightforward meta description that contains most important keywords. 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 3 images on this web page.
2 ALT attributes are 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 alternative text for 2 images on businesslive.co.za. Check the images on your website to make sure accurate and relevant alternative text is specified for each image on the page.
Try to keep your alternative text to a simple, one-sentence description of what's in the image.
We've discovered 78,353 pages on businesslive.co.za.
Discovered pages do not impact your ranking but this is very handy information to have to make sure that your site’s pages are being indexed correctly.
A low number can indicate that bots are unable to discover your pages, which is commonly caused by bad site architecture and poorl internal linking. Or you've unknowingly prevented bots and search engines from crawling and indexing your pages. An unusually high number could be an indication of duplicate content due to URL parameters.
Make sure your website's XML sitemap is present and that you've 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 search results at the same time.
Check Index Status and Crawl Errors in Google Search Console to track the status of your crawled/indexed pages.
If the number shown here doesn’t sound right, we recommend to use WooRank’s Site Crawl analysis to find out why.
If you use parameters in your URL like session IDs or sorting and filtering, use the rel="canonical" tag to tell search engines which version of those pages is the original.
No hreflang tags were found on this page
Great, a redirect is in place to redirect traffic from your non-preferred domain.
All versions of your page point to the same URL.
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.
Your site currently has a robots.txt file. You can use Google Search Console's Robots.txt Tester to submit and test your robots.txt file and to make sure Googlebot isn't crawling any restricted files.
See the pages you've disallowed with your robots.txt file with Site Crawl.
XML sitemaps contain the list of your URLs that are available to index and allow the search engines to read your pages more intelligently. They can also include information like your site’s latest updates, frequency of changes and the importance of URLs.
Be 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 sure to be consistent in using your preferred URLs (with or without www.), correct protocols (http vs. https) and trailing slashes. You should also use your robots.txt file to point search engine crawlers to the location of your sitemap.
All sitemaps are within the file size limit
All sitemaps are within the URL count limit
All sitemaps have a valid structure
All sitemaps are accessible
The sitemaps in your robots.txt file use a valid URL format
Good, the URLs look clean.
We found underscores in this URL and/or in your in-page URLs.
Using underscores in your URL makes it hard for search engines to determine your site's relevance to a search. Google sees hyphens as word separators while underscores are ignored. So the search engine sees https://www.businesslive.co.za/group/bd/Gupta_Emails_Revealed/ as all one word. Use hyphens in your URLs instead: https://www.businesslive.co.za/group/bd/Gupta-Emails-Revealed/.
We've detected underscores in your URLs. Change underscores to hyphens to maximize your SEO.
'og:image' must be an absolute url
We didn't detect any microformat items on your webpage
