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.
The meta description for independent.co.uk 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.
independent.co.uk currently has 67 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.
We found 11 images on this web page.
8 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 you're missing alternative text for 8 images on independent.co.uk. 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 3,206,559 pages in Google's index for independent.co.uk.
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.
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.
All sitemaps are within the file size limit
All sitemaps are within the URL count limit
All sitemaps have a valid structure
All sitemaps are accessible
The sitemaps in your robots.txt file use a valid URL format
Perfect, your URLs look clean.
Great, you are not using underscores (these_are_underscores) in your URLs.
Great, you aren't using underscores (these_are_underscores) in your URLs.
Google sees hyphens as word separators while underscores aren't recognized. So the search engine sees www.example.com/green_dress as www.example.com/greendress. The bots will have a hard time determining this URL's relevance to a keyword.
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.

Your domain is the human-readable address of your website on the Internet. How long your domain name has been registered does have a limited impact on your rankings in search results. The newer your domain the harder it can be to achieve a higher rank. To help offset this, 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.
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.
We recommend you start a blog on independent.co.uk to engage with your audience and improve your online visibility to attract qualified traffic from a variety of new sources. Use our tips to get the most out of your blog.
