Indexing

Search engines see www.netcast.ms and netcast.ms as two different websites with the same content. This causes them to see a lot of duplicate content, which they don't like.

Right now your website is not directing traffic to www.netcast.ms and netcast.ms to the same URL. It is crucial that you fix this.

Use the rel="canonical" tag to tell search engines which is the definitive version of your domain. Use a 301 redirect to divert traffic from your secondary domain.

This issue can be caused by problems with a website's SSL configuration. Check your site's SSL configuration for any errors.

If you need help resolving issues with your SSL configuration, consider using a professional service to set it up for you.

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.

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.

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.

missing translation: en.hreflang_neutral_contentThe 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.

Mobile

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.

missing translation: en.mobile_rendering_neutral_content

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.

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.

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. missing translation: en.mobile_compatibility_content
At least 60% of your page’s font size is 12 pixels or greater.missing translation: en.mobile_fontsize_content
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.

Security

Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance (DMARC) is an email authentication method. When DMARC is published for a domain, it controls what happens if and when a message fails authentication tests. It is used to prevent malicious email practices like spoofing or phishing that could put your business as risk.

DMARC uses DNS to publish information on how an email from a domain should be handled (e.g. do nothing, quarantine the message, or reject the message).

Once you setup your DMARC record, use DMARC lookup tool to check it for errors.

Using an SSL certificate creates an encrypted connection between your visitor's browser and your website's server adding an extra layer of security. In 2014, Google announced that HTTPS would become part of their ranking algorithm and since your website is not HTTPS, it will likely rank below your HTTPS competitors. When moving to HTTPS, 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 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

Technologies

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.

Branding

missing translation: en.url_neutral_content

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.

404 error pages are displayed when the page you are trying to open can't be found on the site's server for a variety of reasons.

It looks like netcast.ms doesn't have a customized 404 error page. This makes your site less user friendly. Generic 404 error pages strand users on a page with no links or suggestions of what to do next.

Use a custom 404 page to reduce customer frustration and link to other pages on your site. Make sure it returns the 404 http status code.
