Besides this, some additional RSSeo! checks can be performed. For each of these items additional information and explanation will be displayed:

  • Search Friendly URL: The page URL is (not) search engine friendly! Search Engines prefer pages without dynamic parameters. Use an extension for Joomla!/default SEO parameters to make URLs more friendly and get a better index on search engine results page.
  • Duplicate title tags: All the pages on your website should have unique page titles.
  • Title tag length: Google uses the title tag to display the page in search results. Try to use more than 10 characters and create a unique title that will reflect accurately its content.
  • Duplicate meta description: All the pages on your website should have unique page meta descriptions.
  • Meta description tag length: Try to use more than 70 characters (including spaces) and create an unique meta description that will reflect accurately its content.
  • Number of meta keywords: Try to limit the meta keywords of each page around 10 keywords. Some search engines may ignore the rest of the keywords.
  • Headings: Headings are important because they announce search engines what will be the content underneath them.
  • Internal/external links: This will check the number of internal and external links on the page.
  • Page Images: the number of images the current page has.
  • Images without the alt attribute: Try to limit the number of images to around 10 on each page.
  • Images without the height or width attribute: Google guidelines recommend to use the "alt" attribute, describing accurately in a few words the image. Don't abuse it by using too many words because Google might consider this a spam method.
  • Images with descriptive names: Setting the width and height attributes of an image will speed up page loading and improve the user experience.
  • Keyword Density: You can also calculate the density of your keywords on a specific page. All you need to do is enter the keyword(s) you want to calculate the density for in the "Calculate keyword density for" field and click Apply. The result will be displayed at the bottom of the page in this field.
Check for page loading time and page size
  • Page loading time: Search engines recommend to reduce the page loading time to make the web faster.
  • Page size: When this value is minimum, the page loading time will decrease. This item can be further checked by providing a report on loaded elements (in milliseconds) for the page in question.
