Content

Title Tag

Google Developers Blog: Transitioning Google URL Shortener to Firebase Dynamic Links

Length: 84 character(s) (637 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).

Check the title of your website

Meta Description

Missing

The meta description for goo.gl is missing.

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 be between 70 and 160 characters spaces included (400 - 940 pixels).

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 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.

Add the important keywords in <H> headings

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.

Alt Attribute

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 6 images on goo.gl. 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.

Set a name for all your images

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

Web Feeds

A Web feed essentially enables visitors to receive information from your site without having to manually visit your website themselves. This allows you to consistently engage with your users, even when they are elsewhere.

Web Feeds can be used across a network of websites for product alerts, news, blog updates and more. Users can choose to subscribe to your content and receive notifications. Most multimedia content available on the web can be easily and efficiently distributed to your users using feeds.

The content would be delivered to the user in either RSS, ATOM, or JSON format. The aggregation of a web feed is the act of making a collection of web feeds available on one page.

Adding a web feed depends on the CMS you're using. Check with your CMS for specific instructions. You can also check this tutorial on creating RSS feeds for your website. Once it's added, start advertising it on your pages.

Indexing

URL 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!

Not all versions of your page point to the same URL.

Search engines see www.goo.gl and goo.gl as two different websites with the same content. This causes them to see a lot of duplicate content, which they don't like.

Right now your website is not directing traffic to www.goo.gl and goo.gl to the same URL. It is crucial that you fix this.

Use the rel="canonical" tag to tell search engines which is the definitive version of your domain. Use a 301 redirect to divert traffic from your secondary domain.

This issue can be caused by problems with a website's SSL configuration. Check your site's SSL configuration for any errors.

If you need help resolving issues with your SSL configuration, consider using a professional service to set it up for you.

Redirect non-www to www

Robots.txt

Missing

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.

We checked goo.gl/robots.txt and didn't find a robots.txt file. Use Google Search Console to submit and test your robots.txt file. You can also test individual pages to make sure Google isn't crawling any restricted files.

Add a robots.txt file

XML Sitemap

No sitemap found in your robots.txt.

We checked the robots.txt file for goo.gl but couldn't find an XML sitemap. Specifying the location of your XML sitemaps in your robots.txt file ensures that search engines and other crawlers find and access it easily each time they access your website.

Learn more about adding your XML sitemap to your robots.txt file.

If you haven't created a sitemap yet, we recommend you generate one for your site and submit it through both Google Search Console and Bing Webmaster Tools. Usually, your XML sitemap would be found at goo.gl/sitemap.xml

Make 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 consistent in using your preferred URLs (with or without www.), correct protocols (http vs. https) and trailing slashes.
Add and Optimize your XML sitemap

URL Parameters

Perfect, your 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.

Check the On-Page section of Site Crawl to identify any duplicate content issues.
Rewrite your URLs and clean them up.

Hreflang Tags

No hreflang tags were found on this page

The hreflang tag is an HTML tag that tells search engines which languages and (optionally) countries a page's content is relevant for. Hreflang tags also tell search engines where to find the relevant content in alternate languages.

If your website targets users all around the world, using hreflang tags will help make sure the right content is being served to the right users.

The value of the hreflang attribute identifies the language (in ISO 639-1 format) and optionally a region in ISO 3166-1 Alpha 2 format of an alternate URL.

Use WooRank's Site Crawl to perform a thorough check on hreflang validity across a website.

Underscores in the URLs

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://developers.googleblog.com/search/label/mod_pagespeed as all one word. Use hyphens in your URLs instead: https://developers.googleblog.com/search/label/mod-pagespeed.

We've detected underscores in your URLs. Change underscores to hyphens to maximize your SEO.

Discovered Pages

23,348,530    23,348,530

We've discovered 23,348,530 pages on goo.gl.

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.
