Top priorities for website improvement

  • Make sure that all pages have a title in the head of the document. (read more)
  • Check how the website looks using a mobile and a tablet. Consider adding mobile-only styling using media queries. Some websites employ other techniques for mobile visitors which we cannot currently detect. (read more)
  • Consider a leading website analytics solution, such as WebTrends or Google Analytics. (read more)

Twitter0.0

This website does not appear to be associated with a Twitter account.

    • Sign up for a Twitter account and make sure it is linked to from your site.

Analytics0.0

0% of pages use analytics

No Analytics SolutionNo

  • None of this website is using any recognised analytics software. It is still possible to gather a great deal of information from webserver logs, however complete visitor analysis requires client-side Javascript or an image not found here.
    • Consider a leading website analytics solution, such as WebTrends or Google Analytics.
  • 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.

Page titles0.0

0% of pages have defined titles

0% of page titles are weak

  • One page does not specify a title. Page titles appear in search results and at the top of the browser's window when visiting the site. Appropriate page titles are particularly important for search engine optimisation.
    • Make sure that all pages have a title in the head of the document.

Headings0.0

  • No pages were found to be using defined headings. This means that users and search engines may find it harder to determine the content of this website's page. 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.

Meta tags0.0

  • No pages were found to use the description tag. The description meta data is important as it appears on Google's search result pages.
    • Make sure that all the pages of this website include a meta description. If you don't include one, Google will choose a sample of text from the page to appear in the search engine result. By including a meta description, you can control how your search engine result will appear.

Printability0.0

0% of pages are optimised for printing

  • One page of this website does not appear to be optimised for printing (using CSS).
    • Add printable stylesheets for all pages, wherever possible. In most cases, websites can share printable stylesheets over many or all pages, as with screen-based stylesheets.

Amount of content0.0

Rendering Chart...

  • This website has an average of one word per page. The amount of content on a website has been shown to correlate with its search engine ranking.

  • One page of this website has very little content (20 words or less).
    • Ensure all pages have a sufficient amount of content.

Amount of content discovered

URL format2.0

  • 1 URLs are 'dirty'. 'Dirty' URLs include one or more parameters after a question mark (e.g. www.example.com/?pagename=news), instead of a clean URL (e.g. www.example.com/news). Dirty URLs should generally be avoided wherever possible - they are almost impossible for human beings to remember, may expose the technology of the website to hackers and can confuse search engines among other problems. Their use is sometimes necessary for specific applications, and acceptable in small amounts.
  • All 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.

      Page extensions

  • 100.0% of URLs include an ID query parameter (e.g. www.example.com?sessionid=1234).
    • Avoid use of any query parameter ending in id, e.g. 'sessionid;' Google explicitly states that it will not include pages with this format in their index. Consider URL rewriting as an effective and transparent means of creating appropriate URLs.

Server behaviour2.4

No404 page

NoCompression

  • This website does not return a 404 error HTTP status code for missing pages. This is bad because search engines like Google might mistake this for a real page of content.
  • This website was not served using GZIP encoding. GZIP compression is widely supported and reduces the load time of a web page.
  • This website returns page content with or without a trailing slash on the URLs. Search engines might see these as separate pages with duplicate content which they could penalise for.
  • This website uses a temporary (HTTP 302) redirect from http://easternprovince.gov.rw to http://www.easternprovince.gov.rw. This is OK, but a permanent (HTTP 301) redirect is considered best practice.
    • If possible, change the temporary redirect to a permanent (HTTP 301) redirect.

Mobile3.0

  • None of this website appears to be fully optimised for viewing on a mobile or tablet (using CSS media queries). It is important to make sure your content can be viewed easily across a wide range of devices as a growing percentage of web browsing is now done on phones and tablets.
    • Check how the website looks using a mobile and a tablet. Consider adding mobile-only styling using media queries. Some websites employ other techniques for mobile visitors which we cannot currently detect.
