Top priorities for website improvement

  • Consider the amount of text on this website and increase it if appropriate. (read more)
  • Consider adding your analytics solution to the pages which aren't currently monitored. (read more)
  • Check how the website looks using a mobile and consider adding mobile and tablet styling using media queries. Some websites employ other techniques for mobile visitors which we cannot currently detect. (read more)

URL format7.6

  • 2 URLs include a file extension.
    • Avoid use of file extensions wherever possible. File extensions appear at the end of web addresses, and have several negative effects. They make the address harder to remember or type (particularly for non-technical users), and can reveal the underlying technology of the website making it very slightly more vulnerable to hackers. They also tie the implementation of the website to a specific technology, which can make subsequent migration of URLs difficult. Consider URL rewriting as an effective and transparent means of creating appropriate URLs.

Amount of content7.6

Rendering Chart...

  • This website has an average of 342 words per page. The amount of content on a website has been shown to correlate with its search engine ranking.
    • Consider the amount of text on this website and increase it if appropriate.

Analytics8.0

80% of pages use analytics

Multiple Analytics Solutions

  • 80.0% of this website is using some form of analytics software but 1 pages have no analytics. It is still possible to gather a great deal of information for the other 1 of pages from webserver logs, however complete visitor analysis requires client-side Javascript or an image not found here.
    • Consider adding your analytics solution to the pages which aren't currently monitored.
  • Note that this test can only detect recognised analytics solutions. If an analytics solution is new, obscure or used in a non-standard way (e.g. it has been customised) it may not be detected.

Analytics Software Found

Headings9.0

added additions autocomplete browse category center command commands computer dictionary discussions favorite favorites follow forum free general glossary hardware help history hope info internet latest line links march memory microsoft monthly most networking news online other pages posts quick quiz recent recently recommended related slot software stats terms tips today today's tricks useful users visitor visitors windows word

  • All pages were found to use defined headings. This is excellent as it allows visitors and search engines to summarise the content of webpages quickly. Correctly defined headings aid accessibility and are particularly important for search engine optimisation.
  • Some pages did not define headings correctly. The H1 tag should be used for the most top-level heading, with H2 being used for sub-headings and H3 for further sub-headings and so-on. Not conforming to this convention may confuse visitors.
    • Ensure that headings are defined in a semantically correct way, i.e. always start with a H1 tag. This is used to summarise the page content. Further tags (H2, H3, H4 etc) are meant to summarise and partition sections within the content.
