Server behaviour6.6

Yes404 page

NoCompression

  • This website handles missing pages correctly by sending a 404 HTTP status code.
  • This website was not served using GZIP encoding. GZIP compression is widely supported and reduces the load time of a web page.
  • One page of this website returns page content with or without a trailing slash on its URL. Search engines might see these as separate pages with duplicate content which they could penalise for.
  • 3 of the pages of this website return page content with or without a trailing slash on their URLs, but they use a canonical tag to denote the correct version. This is ideal, as search engines will know which version to index.
  • This website follows the best practice of using a permanent (HTTP 301) redirect from http://perio.org to http://www.perio.org. This is ideal.

  • 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.
  • Many headings (7.0%) were found to be empty, or incorrectly defined. Empty or invalid headings are of no value to search engines and make a website less accessible.
    • Make sure all headings have content which is relevant to the page of 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.

URL format8.8

  • 1 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.
