Images

accessibilitySEO-content
Good, most images have ALT attribute.
Number of images: 40
Missing alt tag: 2

List of images with missing ALT attributes:

  • http://graphic1.ibtimes.co.in/www/img/ms-dhoni-home.jpg
  • http://b.scorecardresearch.com/p?c1=2&c2=7922264&cv=2.0&cj=1
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:

"IBTimes India: Get Latest World News, Breaking News, Business, Technology, Political & Sport News"

Length: 97 characters

Warning: The title is 97 characters long. The title should not exceed 80 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:

"Get latest breaking news, business, sports, entertainment, technology and political news from India and around the world with detailed analysis and in-depth reporting from International Business Times India Edition."

Length: 215 characters

Warning: The description is 215 characters long. The optimal description should not exceed 160 characters (http://www.seomoz.org/learn-seo/meta-description).

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 6 keywords:
  • breaking news
  • business
  • sports
  • entertainment
  • technology
  • political news
    Length: 73 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 23.67%
    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%

    Keyword Density & Consistency

    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).

    Flash

    accessibilitytechnologySEO-content
    No flash detected.
    Flash and other reach-media technologies should primarily be utilized for decorative purposes. This makes your site more search engine friendly and improves accessibility (support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=72746#1).

    The <h1> to <h6> tags are used to define HTML headings. The <h1> tag should hold the title describing the content of a specific page therefore only one h1 tag is needed per page. There can be any number of h2 - h6 tags but they should be added in order of importance (www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_hn.asp).

    Doctype

    technologyvalidity
    HTML 5
    The <!DOCTYPE> declaration tells the web browser about what version of HTML the page is written in. It is good practice to always add the <!DOCTYPE> declaration to the HTML documents, so that the browser knows what type of document to expect. (www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_DOCTYPE.asp)

    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)

    Server Location:
    US NEW YORK, New York

    Name Server 1:
    ns.ibtimes.net (173.228.141.10)
    Name Server 2:
    ns1.ibtimes.net (209.237.228.172)

Search engines take the geolocation of a server into account. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXt23AXlJJU)

    HTTPS (SSL)

    security
    No HTTPS (SSL) found.
    Google™ is now treating HTTPS as a ranking signal. HTTPS is a secure web protocol that allows for encrypted communication between website and the client. HTTPS protocol requires your website to have an SSL certificate, which can be purchased from a Certificate Authority (CA) or SSL vendor. (http://googleonlinesecurity.blogspot.in/2014/08/https-as-ranking-signal_6.html).

    Email Address Obfuscation

    security
    Great, this webpage does not contain email addresses displayed in plain text.

    Directory Browsing

    security
    Great, your server has directory browsing disabled.
    Protect Webserver directories from unwanted browsing. To enhance security, directory browsing should be disabled unless you have a specific reason to enable it.
