Title Tag

Hertfordshire Web Designers website design Hemel Hempstead

Length: 58 character(s)

?


Your HTML title tag appears in browser tabs, bookmarks and in search result pages.

Make your title tags clear, concise (50-60 characters) and include your most important keywords.

Check the title of your website

Meta Description

Hertfordshire Web designers specialising in feature rich website solutions. Cost effective, easy to use, affordable solutions. Website designers in Hemel Hempstead Hertfordshire

Length: 177 character(s)

?

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 contain between 70 and 160 characters (spaces included).

Ensure that each of your web pages have a unique, straightforward meta description that contains most important keywords. 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.

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

Search engines may create their own titles and descriptions if they are missing, poorly written and/or not relevant to the content on the page and cut short if they go over the character limit. So it’s important to be clear, concise and within the suggested character limit.

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

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.

Be more consistent with your keywords

Alt Attribute

We found 28 images on this web page.

4 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.

Set a name for all your images

WWW Resolve

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

?

Search engines see www.ianraba.com and ianraba.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.ianraba.com and ianraba.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

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.
Rewrite your URLs and clean them up.

Underscores in the URLs

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

http://www.ianraba.com/free_consultation.htm
http://www.ianraba.com/email_marketing.htm
http://www.ianraba.com/bespoke_design.htm
?

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://www.ianraba.com/free_consultation.htm as all one word. Use hyphens in your URLs instead: http://www.ianraba.com/free-consultation.htm.

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

Blog

We have not found a Blog on this website.

In a crowded digital marketing world, content is king. Publishing your content on other sites is beneficial, but publishing it on your own site is much more effective. One of the best ways to do this is through a blog.

Usability

URL

ianraba.com

Length: 7 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

Your website does not have 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.

Page Size

23.4 KB (World Wide Web average is 2 Mb)

?

Two of the main reasons for an increase in page size are images and JavaScript files. Large page size contributes to slow page speeds so try to keep your page size below 2 Mb.

Tip: Use images with a small size and optimize their download with gzip.

Load Time

1.67 second(s) (14.02 kB/s)

?

Site speed is an important factor for ranking in Google search results. Load time affects not only visitor engagement, retention, and conversion rates, but it can also affect your rankings.

ianraba.com took 1.67 seconds to load at a speed of 14.02 kb per second.

This is too slow and it is likely impacting your search rankings and user experience.

High load times can be caused by a number of things, including pages with poor code optimization (cache, Mysql queries, etc.), server problems, network problems, or third-party issues (advertising codes, analytics codes, etc.).

Site speed is an important factor for ranking high in Google search results.
