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)


We have found following title:

"Micro Center - Computers, Electronics, Computer Parts, Networking, Gaming, Software, and more!"

Length: 94 characters

Warning: The title is 94 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:

"Micro Center - Computers and Electronics - Thousands of products to buy: desktops, laptops, monitors, build your own PC parts, upgrades, digital imaging, printing supplies, portable devices, audio equipment, software, video games, movies, tech books, plus repair service, store hours, directions, and employment opportunities."

Length: 326 characters

Warning: The description is 326 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

We have found 1 keywords:
  • cpu hardware networking pcs notebooks digital cameras camcorder projectors fax printers lcd plasma tv monitors byopc components upgrades optical dvd cd media hard drives video sound cards motherboard backup ink cartridges pda mp3 players cables furniture technical manuals software video game system movies
Length: 306 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

The Text to HTML ratio is 10.43%
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>
computer parts0.61%61----
video cards0.51%5--1--
hobby electronics0.40%4-----

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.


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).


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).

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).


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)

Character Encoding

UTF-8 (Unicode)
Covers: Worldwide
To display an HTML page correctly, the browser must know what character-set to use.


Declared Language: None
Language Attribute: None
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

Status: FAILED [24 errors, 9 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

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.

Nested HTML Tables

Great, no nested tables detected.
In general it is not recommended to use nested tables or to utilize tables for page layout. Nested tables are known to cause performance issues due to increased HTML size and rendering time. It is better to use CSS layout instead.

Web Analytics

No web anlytics tools found.
Web Analytics Tools collect and measure information about visitor activity on a website. Well interpreted web traffic data is invaluable in determining a successfully web strategy and assessing the effectiveness of a website. At a minimum, we recommend to utilize at least one web analytics tool.


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

XML Sitemap

Found following XML sitemap(s):
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. (www.sitemaps.org/protocol.html)


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.

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. 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)


Great, you are using 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

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

Page Rank

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

Estimated number of pages indexed by Google™: 0
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.

Domain Age

Your domain was registerd for the first time: 18 years, 7 months, 23 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

Your domain expires in: 2 years, 4 months, 3 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

Yes, your site's IP redirects to www.microcenter.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

Yes, both the www.microcenter.com and microcenter.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)

Avoid landing page redirects
Your page has no redirects.
    Enable compression
    Compressing resources with gzip or deflate can reduce the number of bytes sent over the network.
      Enable compression for the following resources to reduce their transfer size by 164KiB (79% reduction).
      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
          Your CSS is minified.
            Minify HTML
            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 21.6KiB (13% reduction).
              Minify JavaScript
              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 13KiB (17% reduction).
                Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content
                Your page has 27 blocking script resources and 1 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.
                      Optimize the following images to reduce their size by 101.2KiB (15% reduction).
                      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.
                        178.1KiB of the HTML response was required to render the above-the-fold content. This requires 4 network round-trips. However, if the HTML response were compressed, then the HTML required to render the above-the-fold content could be delivered in just 2 network round-trips. Enable compression for the HTML response in order to prioritize the visible content for this page.
                        • Only about 18% of the final above-the-fold content could be rendered with the HTML delivered within 2 round-trips snapshot:30.

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