Analytics2.0

20% of pages use analytics

Google AnalyticsGoogle Analytics

  • 20.0% of this website is using Google Analytics but 4 pages have no analytics. It is still possible to gather a great deal of information for the other 4 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.

Headings3.0

accepting advanced alerts apple center dark detailed forecasts general help icons location longer maps notifications payments signups subcriptions units watch website

  • A large number (40.0%) 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 optimisation.
    • Define meaningful headings for all webpages. This is likely to help this website's search engine placement and assist visitors in navigating 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.

Server behaviour7.4

No404 page

YesCompression

  • 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 served with GZIP encoding. This is very good because it reduces the loading time of a web page.
  • This website follows the best practice of using a permanent (HTTP 301) redirect between URLs with/without trailing slashes. This is ideal.
  • This website uses a temporary (HTTP 302) redirect from http://www.darksky.net to http://darksky.net. 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.

Amount of content7.4

  • This website has an average of 899 words per page. The amount of content on a website has been shown to correlate with its search engine ranking.

Amount of content discovered

URL format7.6

  • 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.
