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.

    Text to HTML Ratio

    SEO-content
    The Text to HTML ratio is 10.09%
    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.

    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).

    Frames

    accessibilitySEO-content
    Yes, 1 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).

    Doctype

    technologyvalidity
    XHTML 1.0 TRANSITIONAL
    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)

    Headings

    SEO-content
    • 0 <H1>
    • 0 <H2>
    • 0 <H3>
    • 0 <H4>
    • 0 <H5>
    • 0 <H6>
    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).

    Character Encoding

    technologyvalidity
    ISO-8859-1 (Latin alphabet part 1)
    Covers: North America, Western Europe, Latin America, the Caribbean, Canada, Africa
    To display an HTML page correctly, the browser must know what character-set to use (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Character_encodings_in_HTML).

    Language

    usability
    Declared Language: None
    Language Attribute: en (English)
    The HTML "lang" attributes and language metatag define the base language to be used for displaying text and characters on a Website.

    W3C Markup Validation

    validity
    Status: FAILED [67 errors, 8 warning(s)]
    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

    technologyvalidity
    ElementCountDescription
    <center>3The center element has been deprecated in favor of using CSS to center elements.
    <font>1The font element has been deprecated in favor of the font and color style properties.
    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)

At a minimum, we recommend to utilize at least one web analytics tool.

    Nested HTML Tables

    accessibilitytechnology
    Yes, nested tables detected.

    A robots.txt file restricts access to search engine robots that crawl the web. (www.robotstxt.org/robotstxt.html)

    XML Sitemap

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

    Favicon

    usability
    favicon
    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
    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)

    W3C CSS Validation

    validity
    Data could not be obtained.
    It is recommended to use valid CSS to ensure that the website displays correctly. (W3C CSS Validation Service).

    Page Rank

    SEO-Authority
    PR: 1 out of 10 (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

    SEO-Authority
    Estimated number of pages indexed by Google™: 13,300
    Estimated number of pages indexed by Bing™: 0
    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

    SEO-Authority
    Your domain was registerd for the first time: 4 years, 9 months, 5 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: 2 months, 24 days, 8 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
    No, your site's IP 192.254.190.152 does not redirect to barkinghard.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
    Yes, both the www.barkinghard.com and barkinghard.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)

    RecommendationImpactDetails
    Avoid landing page redirects
    Low
    Your page has 2 redirects. Redirects introduce additional delays before the page can be loaded.
      Avoid landing page redirects for the following chain of redirected URLs.
      Enable compression
      High
      Compressing resources with gzip or deflate can reduce the number of bytes sent over the network.

        Leverage browser caching
        High
        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
          Medium
          In our test, your server responded in 0.77 seconds. There are many factors that can slow down your server response time. Please read our recommendations to learn how you can monitor and measure where your server is spending the most time.
            Minify CSS
            Low
            Compacting CSS code can save many bytes of data and speed up download and parse times.
              Minify CSS for the following resources to reduce their size by 1,019B (35% reduction).
              Minify HTML
              Low
              Compacting HTML code, including any inline JavaScript and CSS contained in it, can save many bytes of data and speed up download and parse times.
                Minify HTML for the following resources to reduce their size by 1.6KiB (13% reduction).
                Minify JavaScript
                Medium
                Compacting JavaScript code can save many bytes of data and speed up downloading, parsing, and execution time.
                  Minify JavaScript for the following resources to reduce their size by 50.5KiB (27% reduction).
                  Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content
                  Medium
                  Optimize images
                  Medium
                  Properly formatting and compressing images can save many bytes of data.
                    Optimize the following images to reduce their size by 63.8KiB (9% reduction).
                    Prioritize visible content
                    Low
                    Your page requires additional network round trips to render the above-the-fold content. For best performance, reduce the amount of HTML needed to render above-the-fold content.
                      The entire HTML response was not sufficient to render the above-the-fold content. This usually indicates that additional resources, loaded after HTML parsing, were required to render above-the-fold content. Prioritize visible content that is needed for rendering above-the-fold by including it directly in the HTML response.
                      • Only about 66% of the final above-the-fold content could be rendered with the full HTML response snapshot:16.

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

                      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. Search engines take the geolocation of a server into account.

                      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.

                      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)
