Meta Description

Whether you are an investor, saver or spender of money, DailyFinance offers the latest financial news and advice from leading business and finance experts.

Length: 155 character(s)

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

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

Check your Google Search Console 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.

Whether you are an investor, saver or spender of money, DailyFinance offers the latest financial news and advice from leading business and finance experts.

This is a representation of what your Title Tag and Meta Description will look like in Google search results.

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.

Add the important keywords in <H> headings

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 26 images on dailyfinance.com. 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.

Discovered Pages

278,543    278,543

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 tag to tell search engines which version of those pages is the original.

We've discovered %(IndexedPagesCount)s pages on %(domain)s in Google's index.

To make sure all of the pages on %(domain)s are crawled and indexed, create and submit an XML sitemap to the major search engines. Building backlinks to your internal pages will also help search engines find, crawl and index them. Nofollow links from reputable forums, discussion boards and social media will also help crawlers find and index your pages.

Check Index Status and Crawl Errors in Google Search Console to track the status of your crawled/indexed pages.
Write more content

WWW Resolve

Great, a redirect is in place to redirect traffic from your non-preferred domain.

Search engines see www.dailyfinance.com and dailyfinance.com as different websites. This means they could see a large amount of duplicate content, which they don't like.

Fortunately your website redirects www.dailyfinance.com and dailyfinance.com to the same site.

Redirect non-www to www

Robots.txt

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 robot.txt file. You can use Google Search Console's Robots.txt Tester to submit and test your robot.txt file and to make sure Googlebot isn't crawling any restricted files.

Add a robots.txt file

XML Sitemap

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.

Add and Optimize your XML sitemap

URL Parameters

Good, the URLs look clean.

URL parameters are used to track user behaviors on site (session IDs), traffic sources (referrer IDs) or to give users control over the content on the page (sorting and filtering). The issue with URL parameters is that Google sees each unique parameter value as a new URL hosting the same thing - meaning you could have a duplicate content problem. Sometimes, it’s able to recognize these URLs and group them together. It then algorithmically decides which URL is the best representation of the group and uses it to consolidate ranking signals and display in search results. You can help Google recognize the best URL by using the rel="canonical" tag.

Use the URL Parameters Tool in Google Search Console to tell Google how your URL parameters affect page content and how to to crawl URLs with parameters. Use this tool very carefully - you can easily prevent Google from crawling pages you want indexed through overly restrictive crawling settings, especially if you have URLs with multiple parameters.
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 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.

Blocking Factors

Flash: No

Frames: No

Great, you aren't using Flash or frames on your site.

While it often looks nicer, Flash content can't be properly indexed by search engines. Maximize your SEO efforts by avoiding Flash.

Search engines also have problems with frames because they can't crawl or index the content within them. Avoid them if you can and use a NoFrames tag when you can't.

Domain Registration

Created 14 years ago

Expires 10 months ago

Your domain is the human-readable address of your website on the Internet. How long your domain name has been registered does have a limited impact on your rankings in search results. The newer your domain the harder it can be to achieve a higher rank. To help offset this, 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.

Mobile Friendliness

Very Good    Very Good

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.

Mobile Rendering

dailyfinance.com on an iPhone
dailyfinance.com on an iPad

80% of adult Internet users now have a smartphone. You should definitely be optimizing your website to render on the most popular mobile devices.

Touchscreen Readiness

Make the most important buttons/links large enough to be tapped easily.

Touchscreen readiness is an important aspect of your site’s mobile friendliness. Your tap targets should be at least a 48 pixels in 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.

Mobile Compatibility

Eliminate special types of web content such as Flash, Silverlight or Java.

Plugins such as Flash, Silverlight and Java help browsers load special types of content and applications. However, most mobile devices don't support plugins.

We've detected that your site might be running plugins. Avoid them to make your site more mobile friendly. Fortunately, almost all content that used to required a plugin can now be created using native web technologies.

Font Size Legibility

Perfect, this web page’s text is legible on mobile devices.

You can find additional font recommendations for mobile devices in Google’s typography guidelines for Android.

Mobile Viewport

Great, a configured viewport is present.

The content fits within the specified viewport size.

Great, the viewport is well configured.

Keep in mind that since the width (in CSS pixels) of the viewport may vary, your page content should not solely rely on a particular viewport width to render well. Consider these additional tips:
  • Avoid setting large absolute CSS widths for page elements.
  • If necessary, CSS media queries can be used to apply different styling depending on screen size.
  • Ideally, serve responsively-sized images.

Mobile Speed

Average    Average

Leverage browser caching

Prioritize visible content

Minify JavaScript

Avoid landing page redirects

Enable compression

Like with desktop, the time it takes a mobile page to load is an important mobile ranking factor. Your mobile/responsive website must deliver and render the “above the fold" content in under one second.

Since mobile device CPUs are less powerful than desktop CPUs, speed tips that reduce CPU consumption (for instance JavaScript Parse time) need to be addressed first.

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

Mobile Frameworks

No mobile frameworks have been detected.

Mobile or responsive frameworks are an important part of website optimization as they assist developers in creating applications which are applicable to multiple devices.

Usability

URL

dailyfinance.com

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).

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.

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.

Add a Favicon

Language

Declared: English

Detected: English

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.

Tips for multilingual websites:

Declare the language used

Structured Data Markup

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.

Get the most out of Google's rich snippets for content types such as: 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.

Server IP

64.12.236.77

Server location: New York City

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.

Technologies

Get to know the technologies used for your website. Some codes might slow down your website. Ask your webmaster to take a look at this.

Speed Tips

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

Perfect, your website doesn't use nested tables.

Too bad, your website is using inline styles.

Perfect, your website has few CSS files.

Perfect, your website has few JavaScript files.

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.

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: utf8

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

SSL Secure

Great, your website is SSL secured (HTTPS).

Your website's URLs do not redirect to HTTPS pages.

Your headers are not properly set up to use HSTS.

The SSL certificate expires a year ago.

The certificate issuer is Entrust, Inc..

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 HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) 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 Search Console/Webmaster Tools
