Meta Description

Medium impact Easy to solve

Missing

?

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

A good description acts as a potential organic advertisement and encourages the viewer to click through to your site.

Check your Google™ Webmaster Tools (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, never include more than one per page. Instead, use multiple <H2> - <H6> tags.

Add the important keywords in <H> headings

?

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

Medium impact Hard to solve

17.2%

?

Great, this page's ratio of text to HTML code is higher than 15 percent.

Although your text to code ratio is good, you can always improve it by adding more text content to your pages.

A ratio between 25 and 70 percent is ideal. When it goes beyond that, the page might run the risk of being considered 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

WWW Resolve

Medium impact Easy to solve

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

?

Great, your website directs www.dogfencediy.com and dogfencediy.com to the same URL.

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

Redirect non-www to www

IP Canonicalization

Low impact Easy to solve

No

?

Be careful, your server IP is not forwarding to your website's domain name. Search engines like Google™ are now able to index your website with its IP instead of its domain name. This will result in duplicate content.

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

Medium impact Easy to solve
?

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.

Click here to check your robots.txt file for syntax errors.

Add a robots.txt file

XML Sitemap

Low impact Easy to solve
?

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.

Add and Optimize your XML sitemap

URL Rewrite

Low impact Hard to solve

Perfect, your URLs look clean.

?

Great! You have clean (user-friendly) URLs which do not contain query strings.

Usability

URL

http://dogfencediy.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.

Page Size

42.1 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

High impact Hard to solve

4.48 second(s) (9.4 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.

  • Specify the language code in the URL as well (e.g., "mywebsite.com/fr/mycontent.html").

Declare the language used
