Images

accessibilitySEO-content
We have located images with missing ALT attribute.
Number of images: 7
Missing alt tag: 6

List of images with missing ALT attributes:

  • /images/home/logo-carbo.jpg
  • /attachments/wysiwyg/5/TakeTestButton.png
  • /images/home/btn-financial.jpg
  • /images/home/btn-action.jpg
  • /images/home/btn-eco.jpg
  • /images/forbes-logo.jpg
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:

"CARBO - Hydraulic Fracturing Proppant, Engineering, Stimulation"

Length: 63 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:

"CARBO products and services continue to set standards in the petroleum industry. The companies of CARBO are recognized leaders at developing innovative products For the oil and natural gas industry, CARBO Ceramics is the world's largest manufacturer"

Length: 249 characters

Warning: The description is 249 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.

Keywords Metatag

SEO-content
We have found 10 keywords:
  • CARBO
  • CARBO products
  • carbo ceramics stock
  • investor relations
  • governance
  • Hydraulic Fracturing Proppant
  • reservoir Engineering
  • fracture Stimulation
  • oilfield consultants
  • proppant
    Length: 183 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.

    Text to HTML Ratio

    SEO-content
    The Text to HTML ratio is 13.29%
    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 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
    Yes, 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).

    Page Rank

    SEO-Authority
    PR: 5 out of 10 (Good)
    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.

    Indexed Pages

    SEO-Authority
    Estimated number of pages indexed by Google™: 1,940
    Estimated number of pages indexed by Bing™: 4
    The higher number of indexed pages the more content search engines can index, which increases overall value of the website.

    Domain Age

    SEO-Authority
    Your domain was registerd for the first time: 17 years, 10 days, 1 hour 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: 9 years, 11 months, 19 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. (https://www.hover.com/blog/three-reasons-to-renew-your-domain-names-for-five-years/)

    IP Canonicalization

    SEO
    No, your site's IP 65.38.108.49 does not redirect to carboceramics.com.
    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
    No, the www.carboceramics.com and carboceramics.com do not 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)
