Title Tag

Medium impact Easy to solve

Discount Golf Course Coupons Daily | Golf Courses and Golf Equipment | GroupGolfer.com

Length: 86 character(s)

?

Ideally, your title tag should contain between 10 and 70 characters (spaces included).

Make sure your title is explicit and contains your most important keywords.

Be sure that each page has a unique title.

Check the title of your website

Meta Description

Length: 135 character(s)

?

Great, your meta description contains 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 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).

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

Check your Google™ Webmaster Tools 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.

This is an example of what your title and description will look like in Google™ search results.

While Title Tags & Meta Descriptions are used to build the search result listings, the search engines may create their own if they are missing, not well written, or not relevant to the content on the page.

Title Tags and Meta Descriptions are cut short if they are too long, so it's important to stay within the suggested character limits.

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

This table highlights the importance of being consistent with your use of keywords. To improve the chance of ranking high in search results with a specific keyword, you should use the most important keywords consistently in your content, title, description, H titles, internal links anchor text and backlinks anchor text.

Be more consistent with your keywords

Alt Attribute

Medium impact Easy to solve

We found 2 images on this web page.

No ALT attributes are empty or missing.

?

Good, most or all of your images have alternative text (the alt attribute).

‬‬Alternative text describes your images so they can appear in Google™ Images search results.

Set a name for all your images

Text/HTML Ratio

Medium impact Hard to solve

10.9%

?

This page's ratio of text to HTML code is below 15 percent, this means that your website probably needs more text content.

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

Indexed Pages

Medium impact Hard to solve
6,817    6,817
?

This is the number of pages on your website that are indexed by search engines. The more pages that are indexed, the better, as this offers more opportunity for your website to be found.

A low number (relative to the total number of pages/URLs on your website) probably indicates that your internal link architecture needs improvement and is preventing search engines from crawling all of the pages on your website. You might want to create/check your site's XML sitemap and submit it to the major search engines. You must also build backlinks to your site's internal pages to help search bots crawl and index your web pages.

Check Google™ Webmaster Tools under Health and Index Status, to keep track of the status of your site's indexed pages.

Write more content

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.groupgolfer.com and groupgolfer.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

Yes

?

Good, your website's IP address is forwarding to your website's domain name.

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

Warning! We've detected parameters in a significant number of URLs.

?

Consider rewriting your URLs.

Your site's URLs contain unnecessary elements that make them look complicated. A URL must be easy to read and remember for users. Search engines need URLs to be clean and include your page's most important keywords. Clean URLs are also useful when shared on social media as they explain the page's content.

Rewrite your URLs and clean them up.

Underscores in the URLs

Low impact Hard to solve

We found underscores in this URL and/or in your in-page URLs.

  • https://www.groupgolfer.com/about/how_it_works.php
?
We have detected underscores (these_are_underscores) in this URL and/or in your in-page URLs. You should rather use hyphens (these-are-hyphens) to optimize your SEO.

While Google™ treats hyphens as word separators, it does not treat underscores as word separators.

Blocking Factors

Low impact Easy to solve

Flash: No

Frames: No

?
Flash should only be used for specific enhancements. Although Flash content often looks nicer, it cannot be properly indexed by search engines. Avoid full Flash websites to maximize SEO. This advice also applies to AJAX.

Frames can cause problems on your web page because search engines will not crawl or index the content within them. Avoid frames whenever possible and use a NoFrames tag if you must use them.

Domain Registration

Medium impact

Created 5 years ago

Expires in 4 years

?
Domain age matters to a certain extent and newer domains generally struggle to get indexed and rank high in search results for their first few months (depending on other associated ranking factors). 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

Mobile Friendliness

High impact Very hard to solve
Fair    Fair

This website is not optimized for Mobile Visitors

Mobile CSS

Mobile Redirection

?
It is important to have a well-configured website for visitors who access your page on mobile devices. Mobile Friendliness refers to the usability aspects of your mobile website and Google™ has recently announced that it will use this as a ranking signal in mobile search results.

Mobile Rendering

Your website on an iPhone
Your website on an iPad
?

The number of people using the Mobile Web is huge; over 75 percent of consumers have access to smartphones. ‪‬Your website should look nice on the most popular mobile devices.

Tip: Use an analytics tool to track mobile usage of your website.

Touchscreen Readiness

High impact Hard to solve

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

?
Ensure that your tap targets are large enough (at least 48 pixels in height and width) so that your visitors can press them easily. It’s also important to provide extra spacing both horizontally and vertically around your tap targets (at least 32 pixels) to prevent users from accidentally pressing on the wrong target.

Mobile Compatibility

High impact Hard to solve

Perfect, no embedded objects detected.

?
Great, your website does not embed any special types of web content, such as Flash, Silverlight or Java, so your content can be accessed on all devices.

Font Size Legibility

High impact Hard to solve

This web page’s text is too small for legibility on mobile devices.

?
Since the text on your page is too small for mobile devices, first make sure a viewport is configured. This can be verified using our Mobile Viewport criterion. Next, implement the recommendations below:
  • Use a base font size of 16 CSS pixels.
  • Use sizes relative to the base size to define the typographic scale.
  • The general recommendation for spacing between characters is 1.2em.
  • Restrict the number of fonts used and the typographic scale.

Mobile Viewport

Medium impact Hard to solve

This page does not specify a viewport, or the viewport is not well configured.

The content does not fit within the specified viewport size.

?
Without a viewport, mobile devices will render the page for a typical desktop screen width and scale it to fit. Pages optimized to display well on mobile devices should include a meta viewport in the head of the document specifying width=device-width, initial-scale=1.

Mobile Speed

Medium impact Hard to solve
Slow    Slow

Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content

Enable compression

Leverage browser caching

Reduce server response time

Minify JavaScript

?
Your mobile/responsive website must deliver and render the “above the fold” content in under one second. This allows the user to begin interacting with the page as soon as possible. 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.

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

http://groupgolfer.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.

Favicon

Medium impact Easy to solve

Great, your website has a favicon.

?

Great, your website has a favicon. Make sure this favicon is consistent with your brand.

Resource: Check out this amazing idea for improving the user experience with a special favicon.

Add a Favicon

Custom 404 Page

Low impact Easy to solve

Your website does not have a custom 404 Error Page.

?

Apparently your site does not have a 404 Error Page - this is bad in terms of usability.

Take the opportunity to provide visitors with a beautiful and helpful 404 Error Page to increase user retention.

Customize the 404 error page

Conversion Forms

Low impact Easy to solve

Great, we found a Conversion Form on this page.

?

There are different types of conversions, such as: getting the email address of your visitors, requesting your visitors to fill in a form or closing an online sale. ‪‬‬Converting visitors into prospects/clients is probably the most important target for your website. So, it is important that you optimize your website to boost conversions.

Add a conversion form

Above the Fold Content

Place the most important content above the fold line.

Fold line

?
When designing your homepage, make sure that your most important content is placed above the fold (the top section, which is visible without scrolling).

Tip: Check Google Analytics to find out what the most common screen resolutions are among your site visitors.

Page Size

11.9 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

2.74 second(s) (4.34 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.

Resources:
Check out Google™'s developer tutorials for tips on how to to make your website run faster.

Monitor your server and receive SMS alerts when your website is down with a website monitoring tool.

Speed-up your website

Language

Low impact Easy to solve

Declared: English

Detected: English

?

Great, you have declared the language.

Make sure your declared language is the same as the language detected by Google™.

Tips for multilingual websites:

  • Define the language of the content in each page's HTML code.
  • Specify the language code in the URL as well (e.g., "mywebsite.com/fr/mycontent.html").

Declare the language used

Printability

We could not find a Print-Friendly CSS

?

This is a special CSS style sheet which ensures that unnecessary interface designs and images are left out when printing pages from your site, saving the user a lot of ink.

It is just another way to provide a rich user-experience.

Metadata

Medium impact Easy to solve

No Metadata have been detected

?
Metadata 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.

Google™ supports rich snippets for the following content types: Reviews, People, Products, Businesses and Organizations, Recipes, Events and Music. If your website covers one of these topics, then we suggest that you annotate it with Schema.org using microdata.

Technologies

Server IP

72.47.238.35

Server location: Culver 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

Medium impact Hard to solve

Watch out: your website’s speed could be slightly improved.

Perfect, your server is using a caching method to speed up page display. 

Perfect, your website doesn't use nested tables.

Too bad, your website is using inline styles.

Perfect, your website has few CSS files.

Too bad, your website has too many JavaScript files (more than 7).

Too bad, your website does not take advantage of gzip.

?

Website speed has a huge effect on SEO. ‪‬‬Speed-up your website so search engines will reward you by sending more visitors.
Also, conversion rates are far higher for websites that load faster than their slower competitors.

Analytics

Low impact Easy to solve
?

Web analytics let you measure visitor activity on your website. You should have at least one analytics tool installed. It is also good to install one extra tool to have a confirmation of the results.

Analytics Tools: Google™ Analytics, Quantcast™, SiteCatalyst™, Piwik™, chartbeat™, Clicky™, ClickTale™, etc.

W3C Validity

Low impact Hard to solve

Invalid: 2 Errors, 5 Warning(s)

?

Use valid markup that contains no errors. Syntax errors can make your page difficult for search engines to index.

To find the detected errors, run the W3C validation service, or check Validator.nu to make sure you don't miss an error.

W3C is a consortium that sets web standards.

Fix the errors in the code syntax

Doctype

HTML5

?

Declaring a doctype helps web browsers to render content correctly.

Encoding

Low impact Easy to solve

Great, language/character encoding is specified: UTF-8

?

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

Directory Browsing

Low impact Easy to solve

No

?

Great! Your server prevents visitors from browsing your directory by accessing it directly, this is excellent from a security standpoint.

Server Signature

Low impact Easy to solve

No

?

Good, your server signature is off. This is excellent from a security standpoint.

SSL Secure

Low impact Very hard to solve

Great, your website is SSL secured (HTTPS).

Your website's URLs redirect to HTTPS pages.

Your headers are using STS.

The SSL certificate expires in a year.

The certificate issuer is DigiCert 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 to keep your SEO 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 a Security Token Service (STS) 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
