  • http://drop.ndtv.com/homepage/images/ndtv_logo_white.png
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:

"NDTV: Latest News, India News, Breaking News, Business, Bollywood, Cricket, Videos & Photos"

Length: 91 characters

Warning: The title is 91 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

SEO-content
We have found following description:

"NDTV.com provides latest news from India and the world. Get today’s news headlines from Business, Technology, Bollywood, Cricket, videos, photos, live news coverage and exclusive breaking news from India."

Length: 204 characters

Warning: The description is 204 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. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meta_element#The_description_attribute)

    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 8.01%
    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.

    Frames

    accessibilitySEO-content

    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).

    Mobile Optimization

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

    Mobile Experience

    mobileusability
    Mobile users have now become a critical part of online visits. Making the website mobile friendly is no longer an option but rather necessity. (https://developers.google.com/webmasters/smartphone-sites/)

    Favicon

    usability
    favicon
    file: http://www.ndtv.com/images/icons/ndtv.ico
    size: 32px  by  32px
    type: image/x-icon
    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
    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)

    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)

    Domain Age

    SEO-Authority
    Your domain was registerd for the first time: 20 years, 9 months, 21 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: 6 years, 2 months, 7 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
    Yes, your site's IP 52.2.229.194 redirects to www.ndtv.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.ndtv.com and ndtv.com resolve to the same URL.

    HTTPS (SSL)

    security
    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.

    Spam Blacklist

    security
    Good, your IP 52.2.229.194 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)

    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.

    Directory Browsing

    security
    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. (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc731109)
