Images

accessibilitySEO-content
Good, most images have ALT attribute.
Number of images: 20
Missing alt tag: 1

List of images with missing ALT attributes:

  • //googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/viewthroughconversion/874779278/?value=...t=0
The "alt" attribute provides a text equivalent for the image. If the browser cannot display an image the alt description will be given in its place. Furthermore, some visitors cannot see images as they might be blind in which the alt tag provides a valuable image description. Finally, search engines utilize the alt attribute for image search indexing. (www.w3.org/QA/Tips/altAttribute)

Title

SEO-content
We have found following title:

"Howard Hanna, Real Estate, Moving, Virginia Beach, Home Sales"

Length: 61 characters
The <TITLE> element provides a short piece of text describing the document. The title is very important as it shows in the window title bars, bookmarks and search results. Title should be between 60 to 80 characters long. (www.w3.org/QA/Tips/good-titles)

Description Metatag

SEO-content
We have found following description:

"Howard Hanna, Selling Homes Fast, Real Estate, Home Buying, VA Loans, Real Estate Agent, Navy Bases, Home Sales, Moving, Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Suffolk "

Length: 154 characters
The description attribute should provide a concise explanation of a Web page's content. Also, the description is often displayed on search engine results and can indirectly affect page ranking. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meta_element#The_description_attribute)

Keywords Metatag

SEO-content
We have found 8 keywords:
  • Howard Hanna
  • Home Search
  • Home Buying
  • Moving
  • Virginia Beach
  • Navy Bases
  • Real Estate Agent
  • Selling Homes Fast
    Length: 113 characters
    The keywords attribute was utilized by search engines to provide more accurate search results. Due to the over usage and spamming the keywords attribute has been phased out and is no longer relevant. Google doesn't use the "keywords" meta tag in web search ranking.(googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.se/2009/09/google-does-not-use-keywords-meta-tag.html)

    Text to HTML Ratio

    SEO-content
    The Text to HTML ratio is 23.77%
    Original content is by far the single most important element to search engines. Low Text to HTML ratio indicates little content for search engines to index. We consider it to be good practice to have a Text to HTML ratio of at least 10% and ideal above 20%

    Keywords density and consistency are notable factors for optimal page SEO. Preferred keywords should have higher keywords density indicating their importance. Optimally, preferred keywords should also be consistently utilized in multiple essential areas of the page such as title, description meta tag, h1 through h6 headings, alt image attributes, backlinks and internal links anchor text. Keyword density of above 5% is a good indication that the word or phrase appears too many time in the content. (more information)

    Frames

    accessibilitySEO-content
    No frames detected.
    It is not recommended to use frames or iframes because they can cause problems for search engines. It is best to avoid frames and inline frames whenever possible (searchenginewatch.com/article/2064573/Search-Engines-and-Frames). If frames must be utilized consider <noframes> tag. (www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_noframes.asp).

    Deprecated HTML elements

    technologyvalidity
    Good, no deprecated elements found.
    A deprecated element is one that has been outdated by newer constructs. Deprecated elements may become obsolete in future versions of HTML so it is recommended not to use them. (webdesign.about.com/od/htmltags/a/bltags_deprctag.htm)

    Nested HTML Tables

    accessibilitytechnology
    Great, no nested tables detected.
    In general it is not recommended to use nested tables or to utilize tables for page layout. Nested tables are known to cause performance issues due to increased HTML size and rendering time. It is better to use CSS layout instead.

    • Google analytics icon Google™ Analytics
    • Alexa Certified Site Metrics icon Alexa Certified Site Metrics
    Web Analytics Tools collect and measure information about visitor activity on a website.

XML sitemap should help search engines to crawl the site more intelligently. (http://www.sitemaps.org/protocol.html)

    Mobile Rendering

    Mobile Optimization

    mobileperformanceSEO
    Mobile PageSpeed analyzes webpages and evaluates its performance while providing suggestions on reducing page load times. Google is incorporating website speed in search ranking (http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/site-speed)

    Mobile Experience

    mobileusability

    Favicon

    usability
    The Favicon is a small icon associated with a website. The Favicon is important because it is displayed next to the website's URL in the address bar of the browser as well as in bookmarks and shortcuts. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Favicon)

    Custom 404 Error Page

    usability
    Yes, custom 404 error page detected.
    A 404 is a standard http response code for a resource that cannot be located on the server. Webservers usually return a "404 Not Found" error page for non-existing pages. Unfortunately, these default error pages are very generic and a not very user friendly, therefore, using a custom 404 error page is highly recommended.

    Process of returning http status code "200 OK" for a non-existent page or redirecting users to another url is called soft 404. Soft 404 errors are problematic for search engines and are not advisable. (https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/181708)

    Printability

    usability
    Could not locate print-friendly CSS.
    Print-friendly pages are designed to fit on an 8.5"x11" or A4 sheet and usually include only the content of the page, along with source information. (webdesign.about.com/od/printerfriendly/a/aa041403a.htm)

    W3C CSS Validation

    validity

    SEO-Authority
    Your domain was registerd for the first time: 8 years, 3 months, 13 days ago.
    Age of the domain is one of the many signals that search engines utilize for ranking. Brand new domains generally have more difficult time to rank high for the first few months. (http://www.coconutheadphones.com/does-domain-agematter)

    Domain Expiration

    SEO-Authority
    Your domain expires in: 3 years, 8 months, 16 days.
    Domain expiration far in to the future is considered a good practice as it promotes confidence in your website, decreases chances of losing domain and in certain cases might help with search engine ranking. (http://www.hover.com/blog/three-reasons-to-renew-your-domain-names-for-five-years)

    IP Canonicalization

    SEO
    Yes, your site's IP 67.23.254.229 redirects to chooseahomenow.com.

    URL Canonicalization

    SEO
    Yes, both the www.chooseahomenow.com and chooseahomenow.com resolve to the same URL.

        Leverage browser caching
        Low
        Setting an expiry date or a maximum age in the HTTP headers for static resources instructs the browser to load previously downloaded resources from local disk rather than over the network.
          Leverage browser caching for the following cacheable resources:
          Reduce server response time
          None
          Your server responded quickly.
            Minify CSS

                  Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content
                  Medium
                  Your page has 6 blocking script resources and 2 blocking CSS resources. This causes a delay in rendering your page.
                    None of the above-the-fold content on your page could be rendered without waiting for the following resources to load. Try to defer or asynchronously load blocking resources, or inline the critical portions of those resources directly in the HTML.

                      Optimize images
                      Low

                          security
                          Good, your IP is not blacklisted.
                          Spammer directories provide lists of IPs from which spam distribution is reported. Emails sent from the blocked IPs are subject to closer scrutiny and are much less likely to be delivered. For email campaigns it is recommended to utilize professional email services to ensure that your website IP is not blocked. (www.stopforumspam.com)
