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 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.
We've discovered 102,192 pages on businesslive.co.za.
A low number can indicate that bots are unable to discover your pages, which is commonly caused by bad site architecture & internal linking, or you're unknowingly preventing bots and search engines from crawling & 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 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.
Great, a redirect is in place to redirect traffic from your non-preferred 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.
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.
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.
Property 'og:image' should be at least 200x200px
We didn't detect any microformat items on your webpage
This web page is super optimized for Mobile Visitors
Mobile friendly pages make it easy for users to complete objectives and common tasks and use a design or template that is consistent across all devices (uses responsive web design).
Your site is well configured for mobile users.
80% of adult Internet users now have a smartphone. You should definitely be optimizing your website to render on the most popular mobile devices.
Make the most important buttons/links large enough to be tapped easily.
Touchscreen readiness is an important aspect of your site’s mobile friendliness.
Currently, the tap targets on businesslive.co.za are too small for touchscreen users. They should be at least a 48 pixels height and width with at least 32 pixels of extra space on all sides.
You can further improve your User Interface by adding size and density buckets to accommodate varying device sizes and screen densities.
Use Google Lighthouse to find exactly which buttons or links are impacting mobile friendliness.
Perfect, no plugin content detected.
Perfect, this web page’s text is legible on mobile devices.
Great, a configured viewport is present.
The content fits within the specified viewport size.

Length: 12 character(s)
Keep your URLs short and clean 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).
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.
Your website does not have a custom 404 Error Page.
Your server responded with the HTTP status code: 200
404 error pages are displayed when the page you are trying to open can't be found on the site's server for a variety of reasons.
It looks like businesslive.co.za doesn't have a 404 error page. This damages your site's usability. Generic 404 error pages strand users on a page with no links or suggestions of what to do next.
Use a custom 404 page to reduce customer frustration and link to other pages on your site. Make sure it returns the 404 http status code.
Perfect, all your assets are minified.
You could reduce 82% (17.2 KiB) by compressing the asset(s) listed below.
Perfect, all your assets are cached.
Great, your declared language matches the language detected on the page.
Make sure your declared language is the same as the language detected by Google.

Good, no email address has been found in plain text.
We don’t recommend adding plain text/linked email addresses to your webpages, as malicious bots scrape the web in search of email addresses to spam. Instead, consider using a contact form.
