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 (600 - 940 pixels).

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.

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.

Check your title tag and meta description to make sure they are clear, concise, within the suggested character limit and that they convey the right message to encourage the viewer to click through to your site.

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 3 images on mcclain.ms. 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:

Web Feeds

We found 2 web feed URL(s) on this web page.

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

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

All versions of your page point to the same URL.

Search engines see www.mcclain.ms and mcclain.ms as different websites. This means they could see a large amount of duplicate content, which they don't like.

Fortunately your website redirects www.mcclain.ms and mcclain.ms 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 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.

See the pages you've disallowed with your robots.txt file with Site Crawl.

Add a robots.txt file

XML Sitemap

We found a sitemap at:

https://www.mcclain.ms/sitemap_index.xml

It is recommended to add it to your robots.txt file.

While we were able to find an XML sitemap for mcclain.ms there was no reference to it in your robots.txt file.

Specifying the location of your sitemap 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.

Make sure XML sitemaps 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.

Submit XML sitemaps to both Google Search Console and Bing Webmaster Tools.

Add and Optimize your XML sitemap

Sitemaps Validity

We found 1 sitemap(s) listing 8 URL(s).

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

Great! Your sitemaps seem to be valid

To learn more about what a valid sitemap should look like check out our guide about XML Sitemaps or submit it through Google Search Console.

URL Parameters

Good, the 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

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://www.mcclain.ms/mcclain_guest_photos/ as all one word. Use hyphens in your URLs instead: https://www.mcclain.ms/mcclain-guest-photos/.

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

Mobile

Tap Targets

In the table below, find the tap targets that are too small, their size in pixels and the overlapping target that is too close to be easily clicked.

Tap Target Size Overlapping Target
<a href="/terms">Terms and Conditions</a> 131x13 <a href="/privacy">Privacy Policy</a>
Your page’s links and buttons are too small and/or too close to be easily clicked on a mobile device. The average fingertip area is 48 pixels in width and height. Tap targets should also be spaced enough so that a user's finger pressing on one link or button does not inadvertently touch another one. The minimum required space between tap targets is 8 pixels on all sides.

Use Google's Lighthouse tool to get a detailed look at all of your too tap targets that are too small and too close together.

  • If necessary, CSS media queries can be used to apply different styling depending on screen size.
  • Ideally, serve responsively-sized images.

Together, they stop at nothing to bring every guest an unrivaled experience.\nBoth lifelong Mississippians, Buddy and Joni understand the nuances of planning and implementing a successful Southern event. They oversee all operations, from food service to technology, for everything ranging from weddings and family reunions to corporate events and church retreats.\n\n\t\t\n\t\n\n\n\t\n\t\t\n\t\t\t\n“We fell in love. With each other … then with this place. When the opportunity arose for us to actually own the place where we had wed, we jumped at it.”\n\n\n\t\t\n\t\n\n\n\t\n\t\t\n\t\t\tBuddy & Joni McClain\n\n\t\t\n\t\n\n\t\n\t\t\n\t\t\tOur History\nWhat is now a natural haven of nearly 2,000 acres began with a deal made from love. Buddy and Joni McClain, who had married in the Chapel, began what was to become a labor of love when they purchased the original 468-acre property. When adjoining acreage became available, they jumped at the chance to expand their domain. The added property included what is now the Guest House, which was built between 1837 and 1841. A descendant of the home once wrote that the property was spared from burning by Gen. Sherman on his infamous march through the South, though he did water his horses in the lake out front, and his men took food and other supplies. Now beautifully renovated, the Guest House offers all the amenities of home, coupled with the quaint feel of days gone by.\n\n\t\t\n\t\n\n\n\t\n\t\t\n\t\t\tMcClain Experiences\n\n\t\t\n\t\nMy daughter recently had her wedding here. We had such a wonderful experience from start/planning to finish! The venue is so beautiful that it is hard to even decide where to hold the various parts of the ceremony! I worked with Angela Measells throughout the process. She is so organized and thorough! I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone wanting an amazing wedding experience! We loved the venue, lodge, reception hall, guest cabins, food, fire pit, etc. After the wedding they even made bags of leftover food for the bride’s parents, groom’s parents, and bride and groom. They truly thought of everything!!! Such an amazing experience! Thank you Angela Measells and your staff for making our day so special!~ Misty S. \n\nThank you so much for all you did for Hannah's wedding it was amazing. A truly special night. The food was delicious. If you could please thank your staff as well, they were so professional and pleasant. ~ K. Robinson \n\nThank you for working with us for Mama Clara's Christmas!  The venue worked out well for us.  We received numerous complements on location and food.  I appreciate you assistance.~ D. Dean \n\nI just wanted to tell you THANK YOU so much for the job that you and your staff did for our party Saturday night.  The food, the presentation of the food, your staff …. every single thing and every single detail were just absolutely perfect!!  We simply could not have been more pleased. The food is what everyone is still talking about today!!  It was just delicious – and sooooo well presented!!  We will definitely look forward to working with you again!~ L. Zeigler\n\nYour staff was courteous, professional, friendly, and responsive.

Buddy and Joni McClain, who had married in the Chapel, began what was to become a labor of love when they purchased the original 468-acre property. When adjoining acreage became available, they jumped at the chance to expand their domain. The added property included what is now the Guest House, which was built between 1837 and 1841. A descendant of the home once wrote that the property was spared from burning by Gen. Sherman on his infamous march through the South, though he did water his horses in the lake out front, and his men took food and other supplies. Now beautifully renovated, the Guest House offers all the amenities of home, coupled with the quaint feel of days gone by.\n\n\t\t\n\t\n\n\n\t\n\t\t\n\t\t\tMcClain Experiences\n\n\t\t\n\t\nMy daughter recently had her wedding here. We had such a wonderful experience from start/planning to finish! The venue is so beautiful that it is hard to even decide where to hold the various parts of the ceremony! I worked with Angela Measells throughout the process. She is so organized and thorough! I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone wanting an amazing wedding experience! We loved the venue, lodge, reception hall, guest cabins, food, fire pit, etc. After the wedding they even made bags of leftover food for the bride’s parents, groom’s parents, and bride and groom.

Buddy and Joni McClain, who had married in the Chapel, began what was to become a labor of love when they purchased the original 468-acre property. When adjoining acreage became available, they jumped at the chance to expand their domain. The added property included what is now the Guest House, which was built between 1837 and 1841. A descendant of the home once wrote that the property was spared from burning by Gen. Sherman on his infamous march through the South, though he did water his horses in the lake out front, and his men took food and other supplies. Now beautifully renovated, the Guest House offers all the amenities of home, coupled with the quaint feel of days gone by.\n\n\t\t\n\t\n\n\n\t\n\t\t\n\t\t\tMcClain Experiences\n\n\t\t\n\t\nMy daughter recently had her wedding here.

Buddy and Joni McClain, who had married in the Chapel, began what was to become a labor of love when they purchased the original 468-acre property. When adjoining acreage became available, they jumped at the chance to expand their domain. The added property included what is now the Guest House, which was built between 1837 and 1841. A descendant of the home once wrote that the property was spared from burning by Gen. Sherman on his infamous march through the South, though he did water his horses in the lake out front, and his men took food and other supplies. Now beautifully renovated, the Guest House offers all the amenities of home, coupled with the quaint feel of days gone by.\n\n\t\t\n\t\n\n\n\t\n\t\t\n\t\t\tMcClain Experiences\n\n\t\t\n\t\nMy daughter recently had her wedding here.

Fast websites make happy visitors. Caching assets such as images, javascript and CSS files allows a browser to keep these files in local storage so it doesn't have to download them every time it requests a page on your website. This will lower the bandwidth used and improve the page load time.

To learn more on how to enable caching for your assets you can check out our guide to asset caching and SEO or consult Google's PageSpeed Insights guide on browser caching.

Server IP

12.182.220.240

Server location: Guin

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.

Analytics

Web analytics let you measure visitor activity on your website. You should have at least one analytics tool installed, but It can also be good to install a second in order to cross-check the data.

Popular Analytics Tools Include: Google Analytics, Quantcast™, AdobeAnalytics™, Piwik™, chartbeat™, Clicky™, ClickTale™, etc.

Doctype

HTML5

The Doctype is used to instruct web browsers about the document type being used. For example, what version of HTML the page is written in.

Declaring a doctype helps web browsers to render content correctly.

Encoding

Great, language/character encoding is specified: utf8

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

Branding

URL

mcclain.ms

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

Great, your website has a favicon.

Favicons are the small icons that represent a website, company and/or brand. They can be displayed (among other instances) in browser tabs or bookmarks. Google also displays favicons in a page's search snippet in mobile search results.

You can see how your site's favicon appears in search results in the Google Preview above.

Make sure your favicon is consistent with your brand to help improve visibility.

Custom 404 Page

Great, your website has a custom 404 error page.

Your server responded with the HTTP status code: 404

Custom 404 error pages are an opportunity for you to reduce customer frustration and link to other pages on your site.
