HTML header tags (or simply header tags) differentiate between headings, subheadings and the rest of the content on the page.

mrassociates.org currently has 2 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.

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

We found 5 images on this web page.

1 ALT attributes are 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 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:

Declare the language used

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.mrassociates.org and mrassociates.org as different websites. This means they could see a large amount of duplicate content, which they don't like.

Fortunately your website redirects www.mrassociates.org and mrassociates.org 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.mrassociates.org/sitemap.xml

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

While we were able to find an XML sitemap for mrassociates.org 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 222 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

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 https://www.mrassociates.org/files/9e86c74b/mra_brochure_web_01.pdf as all one word. Use hyphens in your URLs instead: https://www.mrassociates.org/files/9e86c74b/mra-brochure-web-01.pdf.

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

Discovered Pages

207    207

We've discovered 207 pages on mrassociates.org.

Discovered pages do not impact your ranking but this is very handy information to have to make sure that your site’s pages are being indexed correctly.

A low number can indicate that bots are unable to discover your pages, which is commonly caused by bad site architecture and poorl internal linking. Or you've unknowingly prevented bots and search engines from crawling and 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 the number shown here doesn’t sound right, we recommend to use WooRank’s Site Crawl analysis to find out why.

If you use parameters in your URL like session IDs or sorting and filtering, use the rel="canonical" tag to tell search engines which version of those pages is the original.

Mobile

Mobile Friendliness

Very Good    Very Good

This web page is super optimized for Mobile Visitors

Mobile friendly pages make it easy for users to complete objectives and common tasks and use a design or template that is consistent across all devices (uses responsive web design).

Your site is well configured for mobile users.

Mobile Rendering

mrassociates.org on an iPad

This is how your website appears when displayed on different mobile devices.

With more than half of all Google search queries originating on a mobile device, it is important to make sure your mobile site is optimized for these users.

Tap Targets

Perfect, your page’s tap targets are big enough and have enough space between them.

Great, your links and buttons are big enough to be easily tapped and spaced enough so that a user's finger pressing on one tap target does not inadvertently touch another tap target.

Plugins

Perfect, no plugin content 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

Perfect, this web page’s text is legible on mobile devices.

At least 60% of your page’s font size is 12 pixels or greater.

Mobile Viewport

Great, a configured viewport is present.

The content fits within the specified viewport size.

Great, the viewport is well configured.

Keep in mind that since the width (in CSS pixels) of the viewport may vary, your page content should not solely rely on a particular viewport width to render well. Consider these additional tips:
  • Avoid setting large absolute CSS widths for page elements.
  • If necessary, CSS media queries can be used to apply different styling depending on screen size.
  • Ideally, serve responsively-sized images.

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.

AMP

We didn't find AMP on your page.

AMP is an open-source library that provides a straightforward way to create web pages that are compelling, smooth, and load near instantaneously for users.

Check your AMP markup with the AMP validator.

Security

Email Privacy

Good, no email address has been found in plain text.

We don’t recommend adding plain text/linked email addresses to your webpages, as malicious bots scrape the web in search of email addresses to spam. Instead, consider using a contact form.

Hide email addresses to avoid being spammed

SSL Secure

Great, your website is SSL secured (HTTPS).

Your website's URLs redirect to HTTPS pages.

Your website is configured with HSTS.

Renew your SSL certificate now, it expires 2 months ago.

The certificate issuer is Let's Encrypt.

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 your site remains 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 HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) 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
  • Update your XML sitemap to ensure the URLs include HTTPS and update the robots.txt file to reference this version
  • Register the HTTPS website in Google & Bing Search Console/Webmaster Tools

Performance

Asset Minification

Perfect, all your assets are minified.

Great! We didn't find unminified assets on your web page.

To learn more on how to minification helps a website, read our guide to minification.

Asset Compression

Perfect, all your assets are compressed.

Great! We didn't find uncompressed assets on your web page.
Compressing assets reduces the amount of time it takes a user's browser to download files from your server. Enabling compression is an important part of reducing the amount of time it takes your website to load.

Asset Cacheability

Perfect, all your assets are cached.

Great! We didn't find uncached assets on your web page.
Enabling caching for your website makes your site load faster for repeat visitors.

Branding

URL

mrassociates.org

Length: 12 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.

About
We provide specialist advice, representation and training around the housing benefit scheme in relation to UK supported accommodation.
Mission
Supported housing providers do not have the resources to navigate complex social security legislation to maximise and secure their housing benefit entitlement.

We provide the legal and administrative expertise and representation to enable supported housing providers throughout the UK to navigate the complex issues arising from accessing and maintaining appropriate levels of Housing Benefit from their Local Authority on behalf of their vulnerable tenants.

We enable these providers to achieve savings, enhanced organisational processes, increased financial viability and greater confidence in dealing with housing benefit on behalf of their occupants by coming alongside our clients and delivering expert advice, training and advocacy services, in a modern and efficient manner.

We deliver industry leading solutions to the housing benefit problems of supported housing providers with the highest standard of professionalism, clarity and efficiency and employing a corporate ethos of integrity that conveys warmth and respect to all.
Company overview
We are now considered the UK’s leading consultancy specialising in housing benefit issues regarding supported accommodation.
Meta Description
The area of supported housing and benefits can be complex and time-consuming. We can help you tackle a range of issues by providing clear guidance and expert opinion on the housing benefit scheme in relation to supported accommodation.

We work for UK charities, social housing providers and other non-profit-making organisations that provide supported housing to vulnerable adults. Our support enables you to provide your services without becoming entrenched in complex housing benefit issues.

We have an outstanding track record working for UK charities and other non-profit-making organisations and successfully resolving housing benefit disputes before local authorities and tribunals.

ADVICE

Specialist housing benefit advice

Whether you need advice about a local authority request for information or support regarding a complex housing benefit issue, our experienced team is on hand to ensure you receive clear guidance at every step.

Establishing your status

For your occupants to receive the appropriate housing benefit payments, it’s essential your accommodation is awarded the correct status. We can assist you in obtaining 'exempt accommodation' or 'specified accommodation' status for your supported housing services.

Setting your rents

Are your occupants receiving all the housing benefit they’re entitled to? We have helped hundreds of not-for-profit organisations optimise their rental income so they can provide the best quality services to the vulnerable occupants they house.

REPRESENTATION

Representation before Local Authorities

When you need to ‘make your case’ to a local authority it's essential to have the right team on your side. We can request a statement of reasons regarding a housing benefit decision; gather evidence and draft a response to the council; and, of course, you can instruct us to help your occupants initiate appeals. We can also accompany you to meetings and negotiate settlements on your behalf with the local authority.

Representation at tribunal hearings

If the matter is already with the Tribunals Service, we can prepare written submissions, draft witness statemements, manage tribunal directions and provide representation on your occupants behalf or by instructing a barrister (in England and Wales) or advocate (in Scotland). This is because we have Licensed Access with the Bar Standards Board and are recognised by the Faculty of Advocates as a Direct Access Body.

Judicial Review and Ombudsman complaints

If your case needs immediate intervention it may be appropriate to initiate judicial review proceedings to challenge the way in which a decision has been made. In other cases it may be advisable to involve the Local Government Ombudsman who will investigate the complaint in a fair and independent way. If this is the case, we can work closely with you through every stage of the process.

TRAINING

Customised courses

All our training sessions focus on aspects of the housing benefit scheme as it applies to supported accommodation. For all our customised courses, we work with you to assess the areas of training you and your staff need and create tailored course materials that target specific areas of the scheme. All courses are presented by one of our housing benefit experts who can deliver the sessions at your premises.

General courses

Some recent courses have included: an overview of exempt accommodation (basic and advanced levels); avoiding non-commerciality and contrivance problems; understanding excessive and ineligible service charges; dealing with rent restrictions in exempt accommodation; managing housing benefit appeals and representing at the First-tier Tribunal.

Who should attend?

Whether you’re a trustee, director, senior manager or front-line staff member for a supported housing charity or organisation, you will find our customised or general courses give you and your organisation practical, applicable knowledge. All our one-day, half-day, evening courses, seminars and briefings focus on how housing benefit legislation affects you and your occupants.
