Title Tag

The Telegraph - Telegraph Online, Daily Telegraph, Sunday Telegraph - Telegraph

Length: 79 character(s) (591 pixels)

HTML title tags appear in browser tabs, bookmarks and in search results.

It looks like your title tag is a little outside the ideal length. Since they are one of the most important on-page SEO elements you should make your title tags between 20 and 70 characters including spaces (200 - 569 pixels). Make sure each page has a unique title and use your most important keywords. For internal pages start your title tags with your most important keyword(s).

Check the title of your website

Meta Description

Latest news, business, sport, comment, lifestyle and culture from the Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph newspapers and video from Telegraph TV.

Length: 146 character(s) (877 pixels)

Great, your meta description contains between 70 and 160 characters spaces included (400 - 940 pixels).

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).

Use WooRank's Site Crawl to check thousands of pages for meta descriptions that are too long, too short or duplicated across multiple web pages.

This is a representation of what your title tag and meta description will look like in Google search results for both mobile and desktop users. Searchers on mobile devices will also see your site's favicon displayed next to the page's URL or domain.

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.

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 8 images on telegraph.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 keep your alternative text to a simple, one-sentence description of what's in the image.

Set a name for all your images


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

Web Feeds

We didn't find any web feed URLs 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.


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

Fortunately your website redirects www.telegraph.co.uk and telegraph.co.uk to the same site.

Redirect non-www to www


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

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

Sitemaps Validity

We found more than 3 sitemap(s) listing more than 322 URL(s).

All sitemaps are within the file size limit

All sitemaps are within the URL count limit

All sitemaps have a valid structure

Following sitemaps are not accessible

The sitemaps in your robots.txt file use a valid URL format

Valid sitemaps make search engines happy by allowing them to find new and updated content easily. Make sure your sitemaps are accessible, have valid syntax, are free from content errors and respect the limits set by search engines.

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

Perfect, your 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

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.

Discovered Pages

4,130,970    4,130,970

We've discovered 4,130,970 pages on telegraph.co.uk.

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.

We didn't detect any microformat items on your webpage

This feature shows how trustworthy your domain is based on ‬‬data provided by The Web of Trust (WOT). This group rates millions of websites based on the experience of millions of users together with information from a number of trusted sources, including phishing and malware blacklists.

SSL Secure

Great, your website is SSL secured (HTTPS).

Your website's URLs redirect to HTTPS pages.

Your website is configured with HSTS.

The SSL certificate expires in a year.

The certificate issuer is DigiCert Inc.

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

Fast websites make happy visitors. It is very important to lower the load time of your web pages as much as possible for a better user experience. Compressing assets like images, javascript and CSS files will save bandwidth which results in a better page load time.

To learn more on how to enable compression for your assets, or consult our guide on compression.

Asset Cacheability

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

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.


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.



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.


Great, language/character encoding is specified: utf8

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




Length: 9 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.


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

Your website does not have a custom 404 Error Page.

Your server responded with the HTTP status code: 404

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 telegraph.co.uk 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.
