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)

Length: 305 characters

Warning: The title is 305 characters long. The title should not exceed 80 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:

"The Marcus Troy Experience"

Length: 26 characters

Warning: We have found 2 Description Meta Tags. Only the first description will be utilized by search engines.

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)

We have found 18 keywords:
  • Footwear
  • Gadgets
  • Coolhunts
  • Mavericks Project
  • Nike
  • Marcus Troy Iphone app

    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

    The Text to HTML ratio is 15.13%
    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>

    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.


    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).

    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)

    Custom 404 Error Page

    Yes, 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)

    Domain Expiration

    Your domain expires in: 5 months, 21 days, 15 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/)
