Visitors Localization

No data available.
Registering country code top level domains (ccTLD) can prevent potential competitors from taking advantage of your primary domain reputation. It is also one of the ways to improve country specific SEO and performance. (http://www.searchenginejournal.com/seo-without-boarders-a-guide-to-international-seo-nick-paterman/60092/)


Good, most images have ALT attribute.
Number of images: 66
Missing alt tag: 2

List of images with missing ALT attributes:

  • https://www.facebook.com/tr?ev=6020592686767&cd[value]=0.50&cd[curre...t=1
  • http://www.africa-shops.cm/images/ad_image/1.png
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)


We have found following title:

"Africa shops | Shopping en ligne au Cameroun"

Length: 44 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

We have found following description:

"Des milliers d’articles au Cameroun à commander en ligne | Grandes marques disponibles en vêtements, chaussures, informatique, smartphones et tablettes, beauté, bricolage…"

Length: 171 characters

Warning: The description is 171 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

We have found 12 keywords:
  • africa shops
  • mode
  • vêtements
  • chaussures
  • informatique
  • africa shop
  • africashop
  • smartphone
  • tablette
  • android
  • samsung
  • AfricaShops
    Length: 131 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

    The Text to HTML ratio is 29.16%
    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

    Consistent Keywords % Density # Count T Title D Desc. H <H> A ALT B <b>
    000 fcfa3.48%37-----
    500 fcfa0.94%10-----
    classeur scolaire0.75%8--4--
    scolaire ethnique0.75%8--4--
    africa shops0.66%71----
    classeur scolaire ethnique0.75%8--4--

    rocher gel douche0.38%4--2--
    yves rocher gel0.38%4--2--
    votre compte facebook0.28%3-----
    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)


    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).


    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).


    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)

    Character Encoding

    UTF-8 (Unicode)
    Covers: Worldwide

    It is good practice to use valid HTML/XHTML markup as it ensures that the search engines can read the website correctly as well as it improves cross browser compatibility (W3C Markup Validation Service).

    Deprecated HTML elements

    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

    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.

    Yes, we have detected following web analytics tools:
    • Google analytics icon Google™ Analytics

    Found following XML sitemap(s):
    Sitemaps inform search engines about pages available for crawling. In its simplest form, a Sitemap is an XML file that lists URLs for a site along with additional metadata about each URL.

    Missing - The link to the favicon is either invalid or the icon file is missing.

    Custom 404 Error Page

    No custom 404 error page detected.

    Warning: Soft 404 error detected redirecting to http://www.africa-shops.cm/404error.

    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)


    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

    Status: FAILED [17 error(s)]

    Page Rank

    PR: 0 out of 10 (Very Poor)
    PageRank is Google's measure of the importance of a page. It is based on complex algorithmes evaluating page content, authority, keyword density, back links, traffic, demand and more. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PageRank)

    Indexed Pages

    Estimated number of pages indexed by Bing™: about 10
    The higher number of indexed pages the more content search engines can index, which increases overall value of the website. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Search_engine_indexing)

    Domain Age

    Data could not be obtained.
    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

    Data could not be obtained.
    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

    No, your site's IP does not redirect to africa-shops.cm.
    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

    Yes, both the www.africa-shops.cm and africa-shops.cm resolve to the same URL.
    Domain name with WWW and without can be considered as different pages causing duplicate content for search engines. (www.mattcutts.com/blog/seo-advice-url-canonicalization)

    Server Information

    Server IP:
    Server Location:
    FR -, -
    Your server's IP address and location have minor impact on the country specific SEO. It is recommend to host the website in the country where the number of vistors is desired to be the highest.

    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).

    Safe Browsing

    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=africa-shops.cm)

    Spam Blacklist

    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

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

    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)

    Whois Privacy

    No contact information available.
    Whois Privacy is a service that prevents domain owner contact information from being displayed in the publicly available Whois records. This can help to cut down on unwanted spam but utilizing Whois privacy should be evaluated against business model and branding strategy.

    Server Signature

    Good, your server does not provide version information.
    Attackers can utilize server signature versioning information to their advantage therefore it is recommended to disable it when possible. (Disable server signature for Apache or IIS).
