It is also one of the ways to improve country specific SEO and performance. (www.searchenginejournal.com/seo-without-boarders-a-guide-to-international-seo-nick-paterman/60092/)

Images

accessibilitySEO-content
Good, most images have ALT attribute.
Number of images: 143
Missing alt tag: 3

List of images with missing ALT attributes:

  • https://static.avforums.com/data/attachments/901/901824-b265e5eca4c7bfa084fb...jpg
  • https://static.avforums.com/data/attachments/897/897154-b75159a0b55513efd718...jpg
  • images/logos/tmdb-logo.svg
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:

"Audio Video Home Entertainment Resource and Community | AVForums"

Length: 64 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:

"Home entertainment and technology reviews, news, articles and discussion forums for home cinema, hi-fi, computers, movies & tv, gaming and gadgets | AVForums"

Length: 157 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.

Keywords Metatag

SEO-content
No Keywords Found.
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.

Text to HTML Ratio

SEO-content
The Text to HTML ratio is 20.88%
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 6% can indicate that the word or a phrase appears too many time in the content.

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).

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 (www.mattcutts.com/blog/site-speed)

Mobile Experience

mobileusability
Mobile users have now become a critical part of online visits. Making the website mobile friendly is no longer an option but rather necessity. (https://developers.google.com/webmasters/smartphone-sites/)

Favicon

usability
favicon
file: http://avforums.com/favicon.ico
size: 16px  by  16px
type: image/x-icon

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. Web servers 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.

W3C CSS Validation

validity
Status: FAILED [39 error(s)]
It is recommended to use valid CSS to ensure that the website displays correctly. (W3C CSS Validation Service).

Domain Age

SEO-Authority
Your domain was registerd for the first time: 17 years, 6 months, 19 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.

Domain Expiration

SEO-Authority
Your domain expires in: 5 months, 11 days, 9 hours.
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. (https://www.hover.com/blog/three-reasons-to-renew-your-domain-names-for-five-years/)

IP Canonicalization

SEO
Yes, your site's IP 176.56.60.158 redirects to www.avforums.com.
Warning: Current redirect is "HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily" but it should be "HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently"
Some web spiders index websites using IP as well as domain name which can cause duplicate content if there is no IP Canonicalization.

URL Canonicalization

SEO
Yes, both the www.avforums.com and avforums.com 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)

HTTPS protocol requires your website to have an SSL certificate, which can be purchased from a Certificate Authority (CA) or SSL vendor. (security.googleblog.com/2014/08/https-as-ranking-signal_6.html).

Safe Browsing

security
Yes
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. If your site is marked as unsafe see our guide on how to fix websites blocked by google safe browsing

Spam Blacklist

security
Good, your IP 176.56.60.158 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
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. See our email obfuscation techniques guide for more details.

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. (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc731109)

Whois Privacy

security
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.

security
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.
