SEO

Title Tag

VR Business Brokers - Corporate

Length: 31 character(s)

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.

Check the title of your website

Meta Description

Looking to buy or sell a business? Come to the most trusted name in business sales. VR Business Brokers has sold more businesses in the world than anyone®.

Length: 156 character(s)

Great, your meta description contains between 70 and 320 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, 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

The Keyword Cloud provides an insight into how relevant a topic or keyword is to the content on your page.

It's important to do 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.

Alt Attribute

We found 12 images on this web page.

2 ALT attributes are empty or missing.

https://www.vrbusinessbrokers.com/images/vendor/ph_icon.png
https://www.vrbusinessbrokers.com/images/vendor/map_icon.png

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.

Discovered Pages

65,727    65,727

We've discovered 65,727 pages in Google's index for vrbusinessbrokers.com.

A low number can indicate that bots are unable to discover your pages, which is commonly caused by bad site architecture & internal linking, or you're unknowingly preventing bots and search engines from crawling & 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 you use parameters in your URL like session IDs or sorting and filtering, use the rel="canonical" tag tag to tell search engines which version of those pages is the original.

Write more content

WWW Resolve

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

Search engines see www.vrbusinessbrokers.com and vrbusinessbrokers.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.vrbusinessbrokers.com and vrbusinessbrokers.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.

We checked vrbusinessbrokers.com/robots.txt didn't find a robots.txt file. Use Google Search Console to submit and test your robots.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

No sitemap found in your robots.txt.

We checked the robots.txt file for vrbusinessbrokers.com but couldn't find an XML sitemap. Specifying your XML sitemaps 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 here.

If you haven't created a sitemap yet, we recommend you generate one for your site and submit it through both Google Search Console and Bing Webmaster Tools. Usually, your XML sitemap would be found at vrbusinessbrokers.com/sitemap.

Make 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 consistent in using your preferred URLs (with or without www.), correct protocols (http vs. https) and trailing slashes.
Add and Optimize your XML sitemap

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.
Rewrite your URLs and clean them up.

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.

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 22 years ago

Expires in 4 years

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 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.

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

Great, a configured viewport is present.

The content does not fit 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 vrbusinessbrokers.com 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">.

Usability

URL

vrbusinessbrokers.com

Length: 17 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

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 vrbusinessbrokers.com doesn't have a 404 error page. This damages your site's usability. 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.

Customize the 404 error page

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

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.

Server location: Clearwater

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.

Technologies

Get to know the technologies used for your website. Some codes might slow down your website. Ask your webmaster to take a look at this.

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.

SSL Secure

Great, your website is SSL secured (HTTPS).

Your website's URLs redirect to HTTPS pages.

Your headers are not properly set up to use HSTS.

The SSL certificate expires in 15 days.

The certificate issuer is GoDaddy.com, 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

About
VR Business Sales | Mergers & Acquisitions
Mission
To always develop new and innovative practices for acquiring and selling businesses, protecting customers, and refining the level of services every small and mid-market business owner deserves.
Company overview
Globally headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, FL, the VR Network is serious about doing their part in helping to rebuild the economy one business at a time. With the most highly trained network of professional business intermediaries worldwide, VR sets the professional standard by which all other business intermediary firms are measured.

VR® is Celebrating 36 Years of Successful Business Sales through Valued Representation - It is the service we deliver to our clients; it is the meaning behind our name; it is what every business owner or potential owner deserves.
Meta Description
In 1979, VR set out to revolutionize the way businesses change hands. Today, we are the innovative leader in the sale of privately held companies. With diligence and expertise, a commitment to internal education and unsurpassed professionalism, VR is driven to exceed expectations.

VR has always been at the forefront of developing educational and operational practices to create successful entrepreneurial leaders. VR’s unparalleled commitment to fostering “Best Industry Practices” has been long standing and proven to pay dividends many times over for office owners and intermediaries.

VR CEO, Peter King and VR President, JoAnn Lombardi purchased the VR Franchise in 1999 and have since expanded the franchise internationally; with offices located in Turkey, Puerto Rico, and Hawaii.

As we look back, the last few years were extraordinary for the VR organization, as well as for all business enterprises. It is clear that we successfully managed through an extremely difficult time in the global economy, and have emerged in a position of strength. Our ability to achieve both our expectation and our aspiration is a product of the quality of our business, the skill and teamwork of our people, and the confidence our clients have in the VR brand.

This past year was not for the faint of heart; but at year-end, the jobless rate dropped to a near 3-year low of 8.5%. This is the strongest evidence yet that the economic recovery is gaining steam, and VR is positioned to help put America back to work.

In 2011, the Clinton Global Initiative hosted an event to focus on the U.S. economic recovery, where a myriad of organizations assembled to create short-term solutions and long-term strategies for growth. VR was invited to join a Veterans Working Group, which focused on strategies to lower unemployment among new veterans. VR is committed to the innovative VR-VET50 Program, which helps veterans attain the dream of business ownership.

This coming year, VR will be supporting Veterans with opportunity inside the organization. VR was again awarded the honor of being a “Top 50 Franchise for Veterans.” With our deep appreciation for the service and sacrifices of members of the military and Veterans, we have introduced the VR-VET50 Program. As a company, we understand the value Veterans bring to the workforce and the entrepreneurial population, including practiced leadership skills, commitment, discipline, ability to perform under extremely stressful situations and a solid work ethic.
