Length: 130 character(s)
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 50 and 60 characters. 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).
The meta description for edublogs.org 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 320 characters (spaces included).
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.

HTML header tags (or simply header tags) differentiate between headings, subheadings and the rest of the content on the page.
edublogs.org currently has 11 HTML header tags. Each page should have one, and only one, <H1> tag. Use keywords in your headings with your most important keywords in the top level, and be sure to maintain the <H1> to <H6> hierarchy.
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.
The Keyword Cloud provides an insight into how relevant a topic or keyword is to the content on your page.
It's important to do keyword research to get an understanding of the keywords that your audience is using. There are a number of keyword research tools available online to help you choose which keywords to target.

Keyword consistency is the use of keywords throughout the different elements of the webpage. Consistent keyword use helps crawlers index your site and determine relevancy to search queries.
The table above highlights the most frequently used keywords on your page and how consistently you're using them.
We found 34 images on this web page.
1 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 most or all of your images have alternative text. 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 16 pages in Google's index for edublogs.org.
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.
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.
We checked the robots.txt file for edublogs.org but couldn't find an XML sitemap. Specifying 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 here.
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 edublogs.org/sitemap.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.
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 http://groovylibrarian.edublogs.org/files/2012/04/6171928113_f6aeee63c6_m-10f5bwk.jpg as all one word. Use hyphens in your URLs instead: http://groovylibrarian.edublogs.org/files/2012/04/6171928113-f6aeee63c6-m-10f5bwk.jpg.
We've detected underscores in your URLs. Change underscores to hyphens to maximize your SEO.
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.

Length: 8 character(s)
Keep your URLs short and clean and avoid long domain names when possible.

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.
