?


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.

Meta Description

Your guide to FREE educational media. Find thousands of free online courses, audio books, textbooks, eBooks, language lessons, movies and more.

Length: 143 character(s)

?

Great, your meta description contains between 70 and 160 characters (spaces included).

A good meta description acts as an organic advertisement, so use enticing messaging with a clear call to action to maximize click-through rate. They allow you to influence how your web pages are described and displayed in search results.

Ensure that all of your web pages have a unique meta description that is explicit and contains your most important keywords (these appear in bold when they match part or all of the user’s search query).

Check your Google Search Console account (Click 'Search Appearance', then 'HTML Improvements') to identify any issues with your meta descriptions, for example, they are too short/long, 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.

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

Your website either does not currently use HTML header tags or is using too many. 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, never include more than one per page. Instead, use multiple <H2> - <H6> tags.

Add the important keywords in <H> headings

Keywords Cloud

  • forbidden 2
?

This Keyword Cloud provides an insight into the frequency of keyword usage within the page.

It's important to carry out 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.

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 6 images on this web page.

No 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

Discovered Pages

62,471    62,471
?

This is the number of pages that we have discovered on your website.

A low number can indicate that bots are unable to discover your webpages, which is commonly caused by bad site architecture & internal linking, or you're unknowingly preventing bots and search engines from crawling & indexing your pages.

Make sure your website's XML sitemap is present and you have 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 the search engines.

Check Google™ Search Console under 'Google Index' and 'Crawl' to keep track of the status of your site's indexed/crawled pages.

Write more content

WWW Resolve

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

?

Search engines see www.openculture.com and openculture.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.openculture.com and openculture.com to the same site.

Redirect non-www to www

Robots.txt

Missing

?

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 page is missing a robots.txt file. Use Google Search Console to submit and test your robot.txt file. You can also test individual pages to make sure Google 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 Rewrite

Perfect, your URLs look clean.

?

Great! You have clean (user-friendly) URLs which do not contain query strings.

Clean URLs are not only SEO-friendly but are also important for usability.

Rewrite your URLs and clean them up.

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 www.example.com/green_dress as www.example.com/greendress.

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

Blocking Factors

Flash: No

Frames: No

?

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.

Search engines also have problems with frames because they can't crawl or index the content within them. Avoid them if you can and use a NoFrames tag when you can't.

Domain Registration

Created 13 years ago

Expires in a year

?

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.

Mobile-friendliness

Good    Good

This web page is super optimized for Mobile Visitors

?

Mobile friendly websites 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

openculture.com on an iPhone
openculture.com on an iPad
?

80% of adult Internet users now have a smartphone. You should definitely be optimizing your website to render on the most popular mobile devices.

Touchscreen Readiness

Make the most important buttons/links large enough to be tapped easily.

?
Touchscreen readiness is an important aspect of your site’s mobile friendliness. Your tap targets should be at least a 48 pixels in height and width with at least 32 pixels of extra space on all sides. You can further improve your User Interface by adding size and density buckets to accommodate varying device sizes and screen densities.

Mobile Compatibility

Perfect, no embedded objects 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.

?
You can find additional font recommendations for mobile devices in Google’s typography guidelines for Android.

Mobile Viewport

This page does not specify a viewport, or the viewport is not well configured.

The content fits within the specified viewport size.

?

The viewport is an element of a page’s responsive design. It’s the area of a webpage visible to the user and varies between devices.

It looks like your page could be missing a meta viewport.

Use the meta viewport tag in the <head> to set the viewport to the device’s screen size. It should look like this: <meta name=”viewport” content=”width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0”>.

Mobile Speed

Average    Average

Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content

Leverage browser caching

Optimize images

Enable compression

Minify JavaScript

?

Like with desktop, the time it takes a mobile page to load is an important mobile ranking factor. Your mobile/responsive website must deliver and render the “above the fold” content in under one second.

Since mobile device CPUs are less powerful than desktop CPUs, speed tips that reduce CPU consumption (for instance JavaScript Parse time) need to be addressed first.

See Google's PageSpeed Insights Rules for more information on how to improve each of the elements in this section.

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.

Usability

URL

openculture.com

Length: 11 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 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.

Add a Favicon

Page Size

0.2 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

0.84 second(s) (2,971.57 kB/s)

?

Your website is fast. Well done.

Site speed is an important factor for ranking high in Google™ search results and enriching the user experience.

Resources: Check out Google™'s developer tutorials for tips on how to to make your website run faster.

Monitor your server and receive SMS alerts when your website is down with a web monitoring service.

Speed-up your website

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:

  • Define the language of the content in each page's HTML code.
  • Specify the language code in the URL as well (e.g., "mywebsite.com/fr/mycontent.html").

Declare the language used

Structured Data Markup

?
Structured Data Markup is used to generate Rich Snippets in search engine results. It is a way for website owners to send structured data to search engine robots; helping them to understand your content and create well-presented search results.

Get the most out of Google's rich snippets for content types such as: Reviews, People, Products, Businesses and Organizations, Recipes, Events, Videos and Music. If your website covers one of these topics, then we suggest that you annotate it with Schema.org using microdata.

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.

Speed Tips

Warning: your website’s speed could be slightly improved.

Perfect, your server is using a caching method to speed up page display. 

Perfect, your website doesn't use nested tables.

Too bad, your website is using inline styles.

Perfect, your website has few CSS files.

Too bad, your website has too many JavaScript files (more than 7).

Perfect, your website takes advantage of gzip.

?

Website speed has a huge impact on performance, affecting user experience, conversion rates and even rankings. ‪‬‬By reducing page load-times, users are less likely to get distracted and the search engines are more likely to reward you by ranking your pages higher in the SERPs.

Conversion rates are far higher for websites that load faster than their slower competitors.

See Google's PageSpeed Insights Rules for more information on how to improve each of the elements in this section.

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.

W3C Validity

Invalid: 328 Errors, 22 Warning(s)

?

W3Cis a consortium that sets web standards.

Using valid markup that contains no errors is important because syntax errors can make your page difficult for search engines to index. Run the W3C validation service whenever changes are made to your website's code.

Fix the errors in the code syntax

Encoding

Great, language/character encoding is specified: utf8

?

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

SSL Secure

Great, your website is SSL secured (HTTPS).

Your website's URLs do not redirect to HTTPS pages.

Your headers are not properly set up to use STS.

The SSL certificate expires in 2 years.

The certificate issuer is COMODO CA Limited.

?
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 a Security Token Service (STS) 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
