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)

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 23.28%
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
Yes, 7 inline frame(s) 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).

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

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)

usability
No 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)

SEO-Authority
PR: 4 out of 10 (Above Average)

Indexed Pages

SEO-Authority
Estimated number of pages indexed by Google™: 8,840
Estimated number of pages indexed by Bing™: 0

Domain Age

SEO-Authority
Your domain was registerd for the first time: 12 years, 2 months, 2 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: 1 year, 9 months, 27 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
No, your site's IP 208.115.236.114 does not redirect to usmarriagelaws.com.
Some web spiders index websites using IP as well as domain name which can cause duplicate content if there is no IP Canonicalization. (www.mattcutts.com/blog/seo-advice-url-canonicalization)

URL Canonicalization

SEO
No, the www.usmarriagelaws.com and usmarriagelaws.com do not resolve to the same URL.

                        Your server's IP address and location have minor impact on the country specific SEO.

                        Yes - This site is not currently listed as suspicious.
                        Safe Browsing is a service provided by Google that enables applications to check URLs against Google's constantly updated lists of suspected phishing and malware pages. (http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=usmarriagelaws.com)

                        Spam Blacklist

                        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)

                        Email Address Obfuscation

                        security
                        There is 1 email in plain text on the webpage:
                        • [email protected]
                        It is recommended to obfuscate email addresses posted in public. This prevents email addresses from being automatically harvested by spam bots which helps to decrease number of unsolicited emails.

                        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. If you enable directory browsing, make sure that you only enable it on the particular directory or directories that you want to share. (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc731109)
