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.

We have found following title:

"Merinews | Largest citizen journalism based news platform in India"

Length: 66 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. (

Description Metatag

We have found following description:

", citizen journalism based news platform. Media platform for citizen journalists in India and across the globe."

Length: 123 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

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

The Text to HTML ratio is 33.28%
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.

      Leverage browser caching
      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
        Your server responded quickly.
          Minify CSS
          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 606B (12% reduction).
            Minify HTML

                Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content
                Your page has 14 blocking script resources and 6 blocking CSS resources. This causes a delay in rendering your page.
                  None of the above-the-fold content on your page could be rendered without waiting for the following resources to load. Try to defer or asynchronously load blocking resources, or inline the critical portions of those resources directly in the HTML.
                    Remove render-blocking JavaScript:Optimize CSS Delivery of the following:
                    Optimize images
                    Properly formatting and compressing images can save many bytes of data.

                      Prioritize visible content
                      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.
                        55.1KiB of the HTML response was required to render the above-the-fold content. This requires 3 network round-trips. Prioritize the above-the-fold content so that it can be rendered with only the first 2 round-trips' worth of HTML.
                        • Only about 59% of the final above-the-fold content could be rendered with the HTML delivered within 2 round-trips snapshot:19.

                        HTTPS (SSL)

                        No HTTPS (SSL) found.
                        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. (

                        Server Information

                        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. (

                        Safe Browsing

                        Yes - This site is not currently listed as suspicious.

                        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

                        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. (

                        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. (
