Top priorities for website improvement

  • 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 adding your analytics solution to the pages which aren't currently monitored. (read more)
  • Define meaningful headings for all webpages. This is likely to help this website's search engine placement and assist visitors in navigating content. (read more)

Mobile3.0

  • None of this website appears to be optimized for viewing on a mobile or tablet (using CSS media queries). It is important to make sure your content is optimized for a wide range of devices as a growing percentage of web browsing is done on phones and tablets.

Analytics4.0

40% of pages use analytics

Multiple Analytics Solutions

  • 40.0% of this website is using some form of analytics software but 3 pages have no analytics. It is still possible to gather a great deal of information for the other 3 of pages from webserver logs, however complete visitor analysis requires client-side Javascript or an image not found here.
    • Consider adding your analytics solution to the pages which aren't currently monitored.
  • 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.

  • 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 optimization.
    • Define meaningful headings for all webpages. This is likely to help this website's search engine placement and assist visitors in navigating content.
  • Some headings (4.0%) 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 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.
