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:

"PEX: Employee Expense Management & Prepaid Debit Card Solutions"

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

We have found following description:

"PEX is a leader in expense management solutions for business. We integrate debit cards with popular accounting software to control all aspects of employee spending."

Length: 164 characters

Warning: The description is 164 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)

Keywords Metatag

We have found 8 keywords:
  • PEX Card
  • corporate credit cards
  • prepaid business cards
  • credit cards
  • business debit cards
  • expense management
  • expenses
  • spend management
    Length: 140 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 14.26%
    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>
    petty cash0.56%4--4--
    learn more0.56%4--2--

    prepaid debit card0.14%11----
    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.


    Yes, 2 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).

      • “Citizen Engagement Lab has been using PEX for the last three years and we appreciate their timely customer support! We are now managing around 40 company paid debit cards and growing. In the last year, we have set up PEX Card transactions to flow automatically into our cloud-based expense system, which has greatly improved the user experience for submitting monthly expense reports.”
      • “PEX has been a great addition to our business processes. It has allowed us to get rid of our antiquated and administratively burdensome petty cash system, and I sleep easier at night knowing that petty cash fraud is less likely due to the increased visibility into the transactions. Our employees love it because they don't need to worry about holding (and possibly losing) petty cash, and there is no longer change to return.”
      • “PEX has made chauffeur expense accounting easy as 1, 2, 3! Prior to PEX, it was impossible to keep track of the cash layouts and to determine which purchases were necessary without going through thousands of receipts. PEX simplifies this by combining every aspect in one simple dashboard. Every expense, every authorization, and every decline is fully recorded and trackable with the click of a button. The perfect dream ending to a relentless accounting nightmare."
      • "For a long time, our runners paid for orders out of pocket and then were reimbursed. As we grew, it became impossible for our runners to have the funds necessary to run Favors on a regular basis. PEX takes the financial burden off their shoulders, and ensures that we have an efficient workforce. Additionally, with PEX’s API integration we can match expenses with our internal reports enabling us to keep automated track of our cash flow on a day-to-day basis."
      • “I love how easy PEX makes tracking employee spending. Our employees spend a lot of time traveling and would often lose track of expenses they've incurred or would lose their receipts. PEX keeps track of every transaction so there's always a record. Funding the cards is quick and easy. Using PEX has made this process so much easier and stress-free.”
      • "PEX has been a fantastic replacement for petty cash and traditional credit cards on site at our festivals. From refueling runner vans to ordering additional supplies online, using a prepaid Visa where we’re able to set spending limits and spending rules has really tightened up our crew operations. The online admin system also makes the reconciliation process much simpler, it’s easy to navigate and provides extremely useful reporting which is a huge timesaver!"

    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).


    HTML 5
    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

    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)

    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.

    size: 32px  by  32px
    type: image/x-icon

    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)


    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)

    Your domain was registerd for the first time: 10 years, 6 months, 11 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

    Your domain expires in: 1 month, 22 days, 9 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/)

    IP Canonicalization

    No, your site's IP does not redirect to pexcard.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)
