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. (


We have found following title:

"The Stranger, Seattle's Only Newspaper"

Length: 38 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

No Description Found.
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 20.53%
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

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.

              Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content
              Your page has 9 blocking script resources and 2 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.

                      The entire HTML response was not sufficient to render the above-the-fold content. This usually indicates that additional resources, loaded after HTML parsing, were required to render above-the-fold content. Prioritize visible content that is needed for rendering above-the-fold by including it directly in the HTML response.
                      • Only about 18% of the final above-the-fold content could be rendered with the full HTML response snapshot:11.

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. (

                      Email Address Obfuscation

                      Server Signature

                      Good, your server does not provide version information.
                      Attackers can utilize server signature versioning information to their advantage therefore it is recommended to disable it when possible.
