YMI Doing This

Length: 14 character(s)

?

Great, your title tag contains between 10 and 70 characters.

Make sure your title tag is explicit and contains your most important keywords.

Be sure that each page has a unique title tag.

Check the title of your website

Meta Description

Medium impact Easy to solve

Missing

?

Ideally, your meta description should contain between 70 and 160 characters (spaces included).

Meta descriptions allow you to influence how your web pages are described and displayed in search results.

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

A good description acts as a potential organic advertisement and encourages the viewer to click through to your site.

Check your Google™ Webmaster Tools (Search Appearance > HTML Improvements) for any warning messages to identify meta descriptions that are too long/short or duplicated across more than one page.

Improve the Meta Description

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, never include more than one per page. Instead, use multiple <H2> - <H6> tags.

Add the important keywords in <H> headings

We found 17 images on this web page.

16 ALT attributes are empty or missing.

?

Alternative text (the alt attribute) is missing for several images. Add alternative text so that search engines can better understand the content of your images.

Remember that search engine crawlers cannot actually "see" images, so the alternative text attribute allows you to assign a specific description to each image. They are also used by screen readers to help provide some context for the visually impaired.

Adding alternative text can help to reinforce how relevant a page is to its target keywords, while also making images more likely to be displayed in the Google™ Images search results.

Check the images on your website and make sure ‪‬‬effective alternative text is specified for each image.

Restrict the number of characters in alt text to 150, including spaces, and minimize the size of images to optimize your website's page load times.

Set a name for all your images

Text/HTML Ratio

Medium impact Hard to solve

8.8%

?

This page's ratio of text to HTML code is below 15 percent. This means that your website probably needs more text content.

A ratio between 25 and 70 percent is ideal. When it goes beyond that, the page might run the risk of being considered as spam.

As long as the ‪‬‬content is relevant and gives essential information, it is a plus to have more of it.

Write additional content with more keywords

Indexed Pages

Medium impact Hard to solve
327    327
?

This is the number of pages on your website that are indexed by search engines. It's important to aim to have all of your web pages crawled and indexed by the search engines, as this gives you more opportunity for your website to be found.

A low number (relative to the total number of pages/URLs on your website) indicates that there is an issue, whether it's due to a bad internal linking structure, or you're unknowingly preventing search engines from crawling 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™ Webmaster Tools under 'Google Index' and 'Crawl' to keep track of the status of your site's indexed/crawled pages.

Write more content

WWW Resolve

Medium impact Easy to solve

Warning, no 301 redirects are in place to redirect traffic to your preferred domain. Pages that load successfully both with and without www. are treated as duplicate content!

?

Your website does not direct www.ymidoingthis.com and ymidoingthis.com to the same URL. It is crucial that you fix this.

Redirecting requests from a non-preferred domain is important because search engines consider URLs with and without "www" as two different websites.

You should first
set your preferred domain
in Google Webmaster Tools, then use a 301 redirect
to divert traffic from your non-preferred domain.

Redirect non-www to www

Robots.txt

Medium impact Easy to solve

Missing

?

Your website doesn't have a robots.txt file - this can be problematic.

A robots.txt file allows you to restrict the access of search engine robots that crawl the web and it can prevent these robots from accessing specific directories and pages. It also specifies where the XML sitemap file is located.

You can check for errors in your robots.txt file using Google Webmaster tools by selecting 'Robots.txt Tester' under 'Crawl'. This also allows you to test individual pages to make sure that Googlebot has the appropriate access.

Add a robots.txt file

XML Sitemap

Low impact Easy to solve

Missing

?

Your website does not have an XML sitemap - this can be problematic.

A sitemap lists URLs that are available for crawling and can include additional information like your site's latest updates, frequency of changes and importance of the URLs. This allows search engines to crawl the site more intelligently.

We recommend that you generate an XML sitemap for your website and submit it to both Google™ Webmaster Tools and Bing Webmaster Tools. It is also good practice to specify your sitemap's location in your robots.txt file.

It's important to only include pages that you want the search engines to crawl, so avoid any that have been blocked via your robots.txt file. Check the URLs to ensure that none of them cause redirects or return error codes. This includes being consistent with your URLs, for example, including your preferred URLs (with or without www.), including the correct protocol (http or https) and making sure URLs all end with or without a trailing slash.

Add and Optimize your XML sitemap

URL Rewrite

Low impact Hard to solve

Good, the 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.

?

The number of people using the Mobile Web is huge; over 75 percent of consumers have access to smartphones. ‪‬Your website should look nice on the most popular mobile devices.

Tip: Use an analytics tool to track mobile usage of your website.

Usability

URL

http://ymidoingthis.com

Length: 12 character(s)

?

Keep your URLs short 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.

Conversion Forms

Low impact Easy to solve

Great, we found a Conversion Form on this page.

?

There are different types of conversions, such as: getting the email address of your visitors, requesting your visitors to fill in a form or closing an online sale. ‪‬‬Converting visitors into prospects/clients is probably the most important target for your website. So, it is important that you optimize your website to boost conversions.

Add a conversion form

Above the Fold Content

Place the most important content above the fold line.

Fold line

?
When designing your homepage, make sure that your most important content is placed above the fold (the top section, which is visible without scrolling).

Google's 'Page layout algorithm' was built around feedback from users after many complained that they were having difficulty finding the content that was relevant to their search queries when arriving on webpages.

This means that Google pays attention to your 'above the fold' content, so try to add useful content and avoid including too many ads.

Tip: Check Google Analytics to find out what the most common screen resolutions are among your site visitors.

Language

Low impact Easy to solve

Declared: English

Detected: English

?

Great, you have declared the language.

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

Printability

We could not find a Print-Friendly CSS

?

This is a special CSS style sheet which ensures that unnecessary interface designs and images are left out when printing pages from your site, saving the user a lot of ink.

It is just another way to provide a rich user-experience.

Speed Tips

Medium impact Hard to solve

Warning: your website's speed should be improved.

Too bad, your server is not using a caching method.

Perfect, your website doesn't use nested tables.

Too bad, your website is using inline styles.

Too bad, your website has too many CSS files (more than 4).

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

Too bad, your website does not take 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.

Analytics

Low impact Easy to solve
?

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

Low impact Hard to solve

Invalid: 37 Errors, 27 Warning(s)

?

Use valid markup that contains no errors. Syntax errors can make your page difficult for search engines to index.

To find the detected errors, run the W3C validation service, or check Validator.nu to make sure you don't miss an error.

W3C is a consortium that sets web standards.

Doctype

XHTML 1.0 Transitional

?

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.
