Page Objects
Congratulations, your page has fewer than 20 http requests. A higher number of http requests results in a user's browser needing to request a large number of objects from your server, which will ultimately slow down the loading of your web page.
Page Cache Test (Server Side Caching)
It does not appear that you are caching your pages. Cached pages serve up static html and avoid potentially time consuming queries to your database. It also helps lower server load by up to 80%. Caching most visibly benefits high traffic pages that access a database, but whose content does not change on every page view. Common caching methods include Alternative PHP Cache, Quickcache, and WP Super Cache (for Wordpress sites). Caching mechanisms also typically compress HTML, further reducing page size and load time.
https://www.youtube.com/embed/OCxTn7t9x4w
In order to pass this test you are advised to use a caching mechanism for your pages. There are three methods which can be used to caching your web pages:
  1. Alternative PHP caching
    - Alternative PHP Cache (APC) is an open source framework which caches data using intermediate PHP code. Most web programmers who are familiar with the PHP programming language can easily set up Alternative PHP Cache for your site.
  2. Quickcache
    - Quickcache is a lightweight page caching solution which was formerly known as jpcache. Quickcache caches the page output rather than compiling the PHP page, making it a superior version of page caching to the Alternative PHP caching. Quickcache can be quickly downloaded from their website and can reduce your page load time up to 80%.
  3. WP Super Cache
    - If you have a Wordpress website, WP Super Cache can be installed within seconds and without no programming knowledge.
Flash Test
Congratulations! Your website does not include flash objects (an outdated technology that was sometimes used to deliver rich multimedia content). Flash content does not work well on mobile devices, and is difficult for crawlers to interpret.
Image Caching Test
Congratulations! Your webpage is using cache headers for your images and the browsers will display these images from the cache.
JavaScript Minification Test

Microdata Schema Test
Your webpage doesn't take the advantages of HTML Microdata specifications in order to markup structured data. View Google's guide for getting started with microdata.
HTML5 Microdata is an easy way to add semantic markup to your web pages. Search engines rely on this markup to improve the display of search results, making it easier for people to find the right web pages.
Here is a simple example of how to use HTML5 microdata in your contact web page:
<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Person">
   <span itemprop="name">Joe Doe</span>
   <span itemprop="company">The Example Company</span>
   <span itemprop="tel">604-555-1234</span>
   <a itemprop="email" href="mailto:joe.doe@example.com">joe.doe@example.com</a>
</div>
Noindex Checker
Your webpage does not use the noindex meta tag. This means that your webpage will be read and indexed by search engines.
Canonical Tag Checker
Your webpage is using the canonical link tag. This tag specifies that the URL: https://peterwoottonseo.com/ should be the preferred version of this page. The canonical tag can be useful when there are similar versions of the same content on several URLs (e.g., such as e-commerce sites where URL modifiers like sort parameters are appended to a product page's URL). Please ensure that this specification is correct, as canonical tags are often hard-coded and may not always reflect the latest changes in a site's URL structure.
<link href="https://peterwoottonseo.com/" rel="canonical"/>
The Canonical Link Tag can be used when there are several pages with similar content and you want to tell the search engines which page you prefer to use in the search results. If your webpage does not have duplicate content and it has the preferred URL you must remove the canonical link tag.
Nofollow Checker
Your webpage is using the nofollow meta tag. You are advised to use this tag carefully since search engines will not crawl all links from your webpage.
<a href="https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/ebtAlM/https://peterwoottonseo.com/" rel="nofollow" title="Pingdom Tools - Loading Time Optimisation"></a> <a href="https://gtmetrix.com/reports/peterwoottonseo.com/Bs0F35bA" rel="nofollow" title="Google PageSpeed Loading Time Optimisation"></a> <a class="dmca-badge" href="https://www.dmca.com/Protection/Status.aspx?ID=faff63bc-24b1-4662-a86d-33f268d316bd&amp;refurl=https://peterwoottonseo.com/" rel="nofollow" title="DMCA.com Protection Status"></a>
Disallow Directive Checker
Your robots.txt file disallow the search engines access to some parts of your website. You are advised to check carefully if the access to these resources or pages must be blocked.
Disallow: /wp/wp-admin/
SPF records checker
Your DNS server is not using an SPF record. SPF (Sender Policy Framework) allows administrators to specify which hosts are allowed to send mail from a given domain by creating a specific SPF record or TXT record in the Domain Name System (DNS). You can find more information about SPF records here.
An SPF record is a type of Domain Name Service (DNS) record that allows email systems to check if the sender of a message comes from a legitimate source and refuse an email if the source is not legitimate. Adding an SPF record is as easy as adding CNAME, MX or A records in your DNS zone. You can find more information here.

Before creating the SPF record for your domain, it is important to have access at your domain's DNS zone and to know what mail servers your domain is likely to use and plan how you want any non-authorised email to be handled.

Example:
Let's say that you are planning to send emails using Google Apps and you also want to ensure that no other mail servers are authorised. You can use an SPF record like this:

v=spf1 include:_spf.google.com -all
"v=spf1" - This sets the SPF version
"include:_spf.google.com" - This includes Google mail servers in your list of authorized sending servers
"-all" - This means that any server not previously listed is not authorized

If you are using your own VPS to send email and not any other service like Mandrill, Google Apps, etc. then you can create an SPF record like this:

v=spf1 mx -all

Note:
Setting an SPF record for your domain can help in reducing the chances of a spammer using your domain name in unsolicited emails. Research carefully what mail servers your domain is likely to use and plan how you want any non-authorised email to be handled.

Check if your website is using HTML compression. HTML compression plays an important role in improving website speed by finding similar strings within a text file and replacing them temporarily to reduce overall file size.
Congratulations! Your webpage is successfully compressed using gzip compression on your code. Your HTML is compressed from 19.99 Kb to 5.32 Kb (73% size savings). This helps ensure a faster loading webpage and improved user experience.
passed Site Loading Speed Test
What's This?
Check your website's loading speed. Page speed is an important factors in search engine rankings and overall site success. Pages that take longer than 5 seconds to load can lose up to 50% of users. Faster webpages result in higher traffic, better conversions and increased sales over slower loading pages.
Your website loading time is around 3.46 seconds and this is under the average loading speed which is 5 seconds.
passed Page Objects
What's This?
Check if all the objects requested by this webpage can be retrieved. If they are not retrievable, your page may display incorrectly, leading to a bad user experience and lower search engine rankings.
Congratulations, your page has fewer than 20 http requests. A higher number of http requests results in a user's browser needing to request a large number of objects from your server, which will ultimately slow down the loading of your web page.

failed Page Cache Test (Server Side Caching)
What's This?
Check if your page is serving cached pages. A page cache saves dynamically generated pages and serves the pre-generated (cached) page to reduce server load and site loading time (by avoiding the re-loading and execution of PHP scripts). Common caching methods are ZenCache and WP Rocket.
It does not appear that you are caching your pages. Cached pages serve up static html and avoid potentially time consuming queries to your database. It also helps lower server load by up to 80%. Caching most visibly benefits high traffic pages that access a database, but whose content does not change on every page view. Common caching methods include Alternative PHP Cache, Quickcache, and WP Super Cache (for Wordpress sites). Caching mechanisms also typically compress HTML, further reducing page size and load time.

HOW TO FIX

In order to pass this test you are advised to use a caching mechanism for your pages. There are three methods which can be used to caching your web pages:
  1. Alternative PHP caching
    - Alternative PHP Cache (APC) is an open source framework which caches data using intermediate PHP code. Most web programmers who are familiar with the PHP programming language can easily set up Alternative PHP Cache for your site.
  2. Quickcache
    - Quickcache is a lightweight page caching solution which was formerly known as jpcache. Quickcache caches the page output rather than compiling the PHP page, making it a superior version of page caching to the Alternative PHP caching. Quickcache can be quickly downloaded from their website and can reduce your page load time up to 80%.
  3. WP Super Cache
    - If you have a Wordpress website, WP Super Cache can be installed within seconds and without no programming knowledge.
passed Flash Test
What's This?
Check if your page uses Flash, an outdated technology that was typically used to deliver rich multimedia content. The web has evolved to replace Flash with open-standard technologies that additionally offered better performance and security. Flash content also does not work well on mobile devices, and is difficult to index by search engines.
Congratulations! Your website does not include flash objects (an outdated technology that was sometimes used to deliver rich multimedia content). Flash content does not work well on mobile devices, and is difficult for crawlers to interpret.
passed Image Caching Test
What's This?
Checks if your page is using an image expires tag, which specifies a future expiration date for your images. Users browsers will see this tag and cache the image in their browser until the specified date (so that it does not keep re-fetching the unchanged image from your server). This speeds up your site the next time returning visitors arrive at your site and require the same image.
Congratulations! Your webpage is using cache headers for your images and the browsers will display these images from the cache.
passed JavaScript Minification Test
What's This?
Checks if any external javascript files used in your page is minified. Minified files reduce page size and overall load time.
Congratulations! Your website's JavaScript files are minified!
passed CSS Minification Test
What's This?
Checks if any CSS files used in your page is minified. Minified files reduce page size and overall load time.
Congratulations! Your website's CSS files are minified!
passed Nested Tables Test
What's This?
Check if this site contains nested tables. A nested table is an HTML table containing another table inside it. Use of nested tables can slow down page rendering in the user's browser.
Congratulations, your page does not use nested tables. This speeds up page loading time and optimizes the user experience.
passed Frameset Test
What's This?
Check if your page is using frames, which divide your browser window into multiple sections where each section can load separate HTML documents. Frames create problems for both users (e.g., by creating unexepected behavior with printing functions or use of the back-button) and search engine robots (by complicating the crawling process). Avoid use of frames when possible.
Congratulations! Your webpage does not use frames.
passed Doctype Test
What's This?
Check for doctype declaration. A document type declaration, or DOCTYPE, defines which version of (X)HTML your webpage is using. Proper doctype declaration assists with proper page rendering and functioning of web documents in compliant browsers.
Congratulations! Your website has a doctype declaration:
  • <!DOCTYPE html>
passed URL Redirects Checker
What's This?
Check how many redirects your URL will perform to resolve to the final destination URL. Redirects often cause search engine indexing issues and can also lead to some minor loading delays. Google recommends removing or keeping redirects to a minimum.
Congratulations! Your URL doesn't have any redirects (which could potentially cause site indexation issues and site loading delays).
SERVER AND SECURITY
passed URL Canonicalization Test
What's This?
Test your site for potential URL canonicalization issues. Canonicalization describes how a site can use slightly different URLs for the same page (e.g., if http://www.example.com and http://example.com displays the same page but do not resolve to the same URL). If this happens, search engines may be unsure about which URL is the correct one to index. Learn more about canonicalization issues.
https://peterwoottonseo.com and https://www.peterwoottonseo.com resolve to the same URL.
passed HTTPS Test
What's This?
Check if your website is using HTTPS, a secure protocol for sending/receiving data over the Internet. Using HTTPS indicates that an additional encryption/authentication layer was added between client and server. HTTPS should be used by any site that collects sensitive customer data such as credit card information. Even for sites that do not collect such data, switching to https helps users by improving privacy and overall security. Google is increasingly using https as a positive ranking factor.
Your website is successfully using https, a secure communication protocol over the Internet. Note: if your site relies primarily on ad income, be aware that using https may be detrimental to ad earnings.
passed Safe Browsing Test
What's This?
Check if your website is identified as having malware or exhibiting phishing activity by Google's safe browsing API. Any site containing malware or suspicious for phising activity is seen as a threat to the online community and is often penalized by search engines. This test checks your website against regularly updated malware and phishing databases of problem websites.
This site is not currently listed as suspicious (no malware or phishing activity found).
passed Server Signature Test
What's This?
Check if your server's signature is ON. A server signature is the public identity of your web server and contains sensitive information that could be used to exploit any known vulnerability. Turning your server signature OFF is considered a good security practice to avoid disclosure of what software versions you are running.
Congratulations, your server signature is off.
passed Directory Browsing Test
What's This?
Check if your server allows directory browsing. If directory browsing is disabled, visitors will not be able to browse your directory by accessing the directory directly (if there is no index.html file). This will protect your files from being exposed to the public. Apache web server allows directory browsing by default. Disabling directory browsing is generally a good idea from a security standpoint.
Congratulations! Your server has disabled directory browsing.
passed Plaintext Emails Test
What's This?
Check your webpage for plaintext email addresses. Any e-mail address posted in public is likely to be automatically collected by computer software used by bulk emailers (a process known as e-mail address harvesting). A spam harvester can read through the pages in your site and extract plaintext email addresses which are then added to bulk marketing databases (resulting in more inbox spam). There are several methods for email obfuscation.
Congratulations! Your webpage does not include email addresses in plaintext.
MOBILE USABILITY
passed Media Query Responsive Test
What's This?
Check if your page implements responsive design functionalities using the media query technique. The '@media' rule allows different style rules for screen sizes. Media query techniques allow different presentation and content to be served depending on the output device, helping ensure that your website renders optimally on all devices and platforms.
Congratulations, your website uses media query technique, which is the base for responsive design functionalities.
passed Mobile Snapshot
What's This?
Check how your website renders on a mobile device.
You can see below how your website looks on the portrait view of a mobile device.
ADVANCED SEO
failed Microdata Schema Test
What's This?
Check if your website uses HTML Microdata specifications (or structured data markup). Search engines use microdata to better understand the content of your site and create rich snippets in search results (which helps increase click-through rate to your site).
Your webpage doesn't take the advantages of HTML Microdata specifications in order to markup structured data. View Google's guide for getting started with microdata.

HOW TO FIX

HTML5 Microdata is an easy way to add semantic markup to your web pages. Search engines rely on this markup to improve the display of search results, making it easier for people to find the right web pages.
Here is a simple example of how to use HTML5 microdata in your contact web page:
<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Person">
   <span itemprop="name">Joe Doe</span>
   <span itemprop="company">The Example Company</span>
   <span itemprop="tel">604-555-1234</span>
   <a itemprop="email" href="mailto:joe.doe@example.com">joe.doe@example.com</a>
</div>
passed Noindex Checker
What's This?
Check if your webpage is using the robots meta tag or the X-Robots-Tag HTTP header to instruct search engines not to show your site in search results pages.
Your webpage does not use the noindex meta tag. This means that your webpage will be read and indexed by search engines.
failed Canonical Tag Checker
What's This?
Check if your webpage is using the canonical link tag. The canonical link tag is used to nominate a primary page when you have several pages with duplicate or very similar content.
Your webpage is using the canonical link tag. This tag specifies that the URL: https://peterwoottonseo.com/ should be the preferred version of this page. The canonical tag can be useful when there are similar versions of the same content on several URLs (e.g., such as e-commerce sites where URL modifiers like sort parameters are appended to a product page's URL). Please ensure that this specification is correct, as canonical tags are often hard-coded and may not always reflect the latest changes in a site's URL structure.
  • <link href="https://peterwoottonseo.com/" rel="canonical"/>

HOW TO FIX

The Canonical Link Tag can be used when there are several pages with similar content and you want to tell the search engines which page you prefer to use in the search results. If your webpage does not have duplicate content and it has the preferred URL you must remove the canonical link tag.
failed Nofollow Checker
What's This?
Check if your webpage is using the robots meta tag or the X-Robots-Tag HTTP header to instruct search engines not to follow the links on your page. Outgoing links marked with this tag will tell search engines not to follow or crawl that particular link. Google recommends that nofollow tags are used for paid advertisements on your site and links to pages that have not been vetted as trusted sites (e.g., links posted by users of your site).
Your webpage is using the nofollow meta tag. You are advised to use this tag carefully since search engines will not crawl all links from your webpage.
  • <a href="https://tools.pingdom.com/#!/ebtAlM/https://peterwoottonseo.com/" rel="nofollow" title="Pingdom Tools - Loading Time Optimisation"></a>
  • <a href="https://gtmetrix.com/reports/peterwoottonseo.com/Bs0F35bA" rel="nofollow" title="Google PageSpeed Loading Time Optimisation"></a>
  • <a class="dmca-badge" href="https://www.dmca.com/Protection/Status.aspx?ID=faff63bc-24b1-4662-a86d-33f268d316bd&amp;refurl=https://peterwoottonseo.com/" rel="nofollow" title="DMCA.com Protection Status"></a>

HOW TO FIX

If you want search engines to crawl all the outgoing links on your webpage you must remove the nofollow meta tag.
info Disallow Directive Checker
What's This?
Check if your robots.txt file is instructing search engine crawlers to avoid parts of your website. The disallow directive is used in robots.txt to tell search engines not to crawl and index a file, page, or directory.
Your robots.txt file disallow the search engines access to some parts of your website. You are advised to check carefully if the access to these resources or pages must be blocked.
  • Disallow: /wp/wp-admin/
failed SPF records checker
What's This?
Check if your DNS records contains an SPF record. SPF (Sender Policy Framework) records allow email systems to verify if a given mail server has been authorized to send mail on behalf of your domain. Creating an SPF record increases email delivery rates by reducing the likelihood of your email being marked as spam.
Your DNS server is not using an SPF record. SPF (Sender Policy Framework) allows administrators to specify which hosts are allowed to send mail from a given domain by creating a specific SPF record or TXT record in the Domain Name System (DNS). You can find more information about SPF records here.

HOW TO FIX

An SPF record is a type of Domain Name Service (DNS) record that allows email systems to check if the sender of a message comes from a legitimate source and refuse an email if the source is not legitimate. Adding an SPF record is as easy as adding CNAME, MX or A records in your DNS zone. You can find more information here.

Before creating the SPF record for your domain, it is important to have access at your domain's DNS zone and to know what mail servers your domain is likely to use and plan how you want any non-authorised email to be handled.

Example:
Let's say that you are planning to send emails using Google Apps and you also want to ensure that no other mail servers are authorised. You can use an SPF record like this:

v=spf1 include:_spf.google.com -all
"v=spf1" - This sets the SPF version
"include:_spf.google.com" - This includes Google mail servers in your list of authorized sending servers
"-all" - This means that any server not previously listed is not authorized

If you are using your own VPS to send email and not any other service like Mandrill, Google Apps, etc. then you can create an SPF record like this:

v=spf1 mx -all

Note:
Setting an SPF record for your domain can help in reducing the chances of a spammer using your domain name in unsolicited emails. Research carefully what mail servers your domain is likely to use and plan how you want any non-authorised email to be handled.
