  • One page of this website was found to be using the tag <i>. It is widely regarded that use of presentational elements like <i> should be avoided.
    • Replace all the instances of presentational tags with a semantic alternative. This means where possible, use semantically correct HTML and then style it with CSS.

      Non-semantic HTML tags found

  • None of the tested pages of this site use tables for layout. This is excellent, as using tables for layout is not necessary and they should only contain tabular data. A well built website should use div elements and CSS to create the desired layout.

W3C Testing Results

URL format6.4

  • 3 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.

Social interest6.6

Rendering Chart...

  • We found 319 Tweets, 3 Facebook likes and 214 Google +1s for the 5 pages we tested.
    • Encourage sharing of your content with social media buttons on articles and pages of your website. The amount of social activity a website should have depends very much on the type of website, its target audience, and how long it has been in operation.
