Amount of content2.0

Rendering Chart...

  • This website has an average of 304 words per page. The amount of content on a website has been shown to correlate with its search engine ranking.
    • Consider the amount of text on this website and increase it if appropriate.
  • 4 pages of this website have very little content (20 words or less).
    • Ensure all pages have a sufficient amount of content.

URL format2.4

  • 2 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.
  • 20.0% 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.
