Headings4.0

archive class deluxe directory economy free geocities homesteader hosting project search service terms ultimate unlimited

  • A significant amount (20.0%) of pages do not use defined headings. This means that users and search engines may find it harder to determine the content of this website's pages. Correctly defined headings aid accessibility and are particularly important for search engine optimisation.
    • Define meaningful headings for all webpages. This is likely to help this website's search engine placement and assist visitors in navigating content.
  • 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.

Server behaviour7.4

Yes404 page

YesCompression

  • This website handles missing pages correctly by sending a 404 HTTP status code.
  • This website was served with GZIP encoding. This is very good because it reduces the loading time of a web page.
  • 2 of the pages of this website follow the best practice of using a permanent (HTTP 301) redirect between URLs with/without trailing slashes. These pages are ideal.
  • 2 of the pages of this website return page content with or without a trailing slash on their URLs. Search engines might see these as separate pages with duplicate content which they could penalise for.
  • There is duplicate content on http://www.geocities.ws and http://geocities.ws. This is bad, as technically they are classed as two different websites. Search engines may lower a website's rank if they find the same content on two different URLs.
    • Choose one domain that you would like to use and then set a permanent (HTTP 301) redirect to forward users who visit the other.

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.
