Top priorities for website improvement

  • Sign up for a Twitter account and make sure it is linked to from your site, or if you already have one make sure it is public. (read more)
  • Consider URL rewriting as an effective and transparent means of creating appropriate URLs. URLs using unusual characters (such as semi-colons or underscores), long numerals or complex phrasing are very difficult for real people to use or exchange. They also tend to be less favoured by search engines. Wherever possible ensure web addresses are 'human readable' - i.e. they should be easy to read, remember and type. In particular, avoid the use of obscure characters (including the underscore, which is not widely understood by non-technical users, or particularly memorable) and long numerals, e.g. example.com/23857984325.

  • Enable GZIP compression on your web server or in your application. (read more)

URL format2.8

  • 3 URLs are particularly hard to type or remember.
    • Consider URL rewriting as an effective and transparent means of creating appropriate URLs. URLs using unusual characters (such as semi-colons or underscores), long numerals or complex phrasing are very difficult for real people to use or exchange. They also tend to be less favoured by search engines. Wherever possible ensure web addresses are 'human readable' - i.e. they should be easy to read, remember and type. In particular, avoid the use of obscure characters (including the underscore, which is not widely understood by non-technical users, or particularly memorable) and long numerals, e.g. example.com/23857984325.
  • 3 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.
  • 4 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.
  • 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.

  • 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.
