It can impoverish the user’s navigation and give a bad experience, in addition to consuming robot resources by making requests to broken files.

Pages returned 4XX status code

These are pages that we have linked and give a 4XX response, related to problems loading the page, either because it does not exist or access is restricted in most cases.

Pages returned 5XX status cod

This type of error is usually caused by the server. To fix it, you will usually need to contact your hosting provider to solve it. 5XX errors cause pages to be inaccessible even though they exist.

This message is displayed when duplicate content issues are detected. All pages must have unique content to avoid being penalized by search engine algorithms.

Pages couldn’t be crawled

When pages cannot be crawled, this error is displayed. We must make sure that search engine robots can crawl the pages if they want them to be crawled.

This problem can also occur for two specific reasons:

When the crawling issue is produced by the DNS.

(Incorrect URL formats)

When the crawling issue is caused by incorrect URL formats.

Internal images are broken

This message is displayed when images with incorrect URLs are detected, preventing them from being displayed to the user and search engines.

Pages have duplicate meta descriptions

Each page should contain its own meta description, since that text is normally displayed below the title in the search engines of each of our pages. This text should communicate what the page is about so that the user can enter in case they are interested in what they are looking for.

Robots.txt file has format errors

If the robots.txt file is not correctly created, this problem will occur. We can check the file in Search Console to detect if there really is an error and the type of error if there is one.

Issues with old security protocol

This problem happens when the page contains elements in both HTTP and HTTPS. We recommend moving the whole site to so it loads over HTTPS connections.

No redirect or canonical to HTTPS homepage from HTTP version

If the website is detected in both HTTPS and HTTP, this error is displayed. You must redirect or insert canonical from the HTTP version to the HTTPS version.

Redirect chains and loops

Warnings

Below is an explanation of the most common warnings that free website analytics can detect so you know where to apply changes:

Issues with unminified JavaScript and CSS files

Minifying files reduces the weight of the files, making them load much faster.

Issues with uncompressed JavaScript and CSS files

Compressing files reduces the weight of the files, making them load much faster.

Issues with uncached JavaScript and CSS files

File caching reduces the weight of the files, making loading much faster.

Outgoing internal links contain nofollow attribute

With the nofollow attribute we indicate to the robots not to follow that link, so if we insert it in our internal pages, they will not discover those pages and will not position or will do it worse.

Images don’t have alt attributes

The alt attribute allows search engines to understand semantically what the image is about, so it is highly recommended to fill it in.

Uncompressed pages

Compressing files reduces their weight, making them load much faster.

Pages have low text-HTML ratio

It is always advisable to have more text than HTML, although if we work with content management systems, this can be difficult.

Pages have a low word count

It is recommended that all pages have a minimum of 300 words for them to be indexed, since content with fewer words makes indexing and positioning more difficult.

Pages don’t have meta descriptions

Meta descriptions help users get a snap of the content before accessing the webpage.

Pages have duplicate H1 and title tags

The H1 and title tags used on each page should be different to semantically help search engines understand what the site is about.

Links on HTTPS pages leads to HTTP page

Pages don’t have an h1 heading

The h1 is very powerful for SEO and helps the user to understand what the page is about.

Pages have too many on-page links

If the page has too many outbound links it can cause problems in indexing and positioning, so it is not recommended to insert many.

Pages have temporary redirects

Temporary redirects do not transfer authority. They should only be used for pages that you only want to display publicly for a certain period of time.

Pages have too many parameters in their URLs

Search engines do not support the use of parameters in the urls to be positioned, besides, if the url is too long, it makes it difficult for the search engine to interpret all the semantic value of it.

Pages have no hreflang and lang attributes

Search engines are not in favor of using parameters in the urls to be positioned. Additionally, if the url is too long, it makes it difficult for the search engine to interpret all its semantic value.

Pages don’t have character encoding declared

Not having a character declaration can lead to errors in interpreting special characters for search engines and browsers.

Pages don’t have doctype declared

Search engines prefer the use of hyphens, as they have difficulty reading urls with underscores and may interpret them as single words.

Sitemap.xml not indicated in robots.txt

The robots.txt file should indicate at the end where the sitemap.xml file is located by indicating the full path.

Sitemap.xml not found

It is recommended that all websites have a sitemap.xml to facilitate the work of crawlers.

Homepage does not use HTTPS encryption

Google considers HTTPS encryption as a quality value for websites, so it is recommended to have it.

Subdomains don’t support SNI

Using SNI allows you to support multiple servers and host multiple certificates on the same IP address, which can improve security and trust.

HTTP URLs in sitemap.xml for HTTPS site

If the site is in HTTPS protocol, the sitemap should point to all urls in HTTPS protocol and not in HTTP.

Issues with blocked internal resources in robots.txt

The problem arises because the robots.txt file is blocking resources, which can result in the site being displayed differently than the way the robots see it.

Pages have a JavaScript and CSS total size that is too large

If the total weight of your CSS and JavaScript exceeds 2mb, this warning is displayed. It is advisable to optimize your website to keep the weight as small as possible.

Pages use too many JavaScript and CSS files

If the page uses too many JavaScript and CSS files (more than 100) this warning is displayed. Making several calls to multiple files slows down the loading of the website, so it is recommended to have the necessary amount for each page.

Alerts

Below is an explanation of the most common errors that the free website analysis can detect so that you know where to apply the changes:

Outgoing external links contain nofollow attributes

Having nofollow tags can have a negative impact on your web crawl. This type of links do not pass authority to outgoing sites.

URLs with a permanent redirect

It is advisable to use redirects in some situations but be aware that it reduces the crawl-budget.

Pages have only one incoming internal link

Pages with few links indicate that they have little relevance to your site, so they will have little ranking power.

Pages are blocked from crawling

Subdomains don’t support HSTS

It is recommended that your server has HSTS support.

Pages contain more than one H1 tag

It is recommended that each page has only one h1.

URLs on “x” pages are too long

Robots.txt not found

It is recommended that all websites have a robots.txt file to block the access of robots to certain parts of our website and indicate where the sitemap is located.

Pages have hreflang language mismatch issues

This problem arises when the detected language of the page and the declared language do not match, so it must be corrected.

Orphaned pages in sitemaps

Orphaned pages are pages without links. It is recommended that all pages have links, and orphaned pages that are in noindex should not be included in the sitemap.xml.

Pages blocked by X-Robots-Tag: noindex HTTP header

The robots meta tag of the page prevents the page from being indexed. We must check that this is correct.

Issues with blocked external resources in robots.txt

If a robots.txt external to our page is blocking the robots from crawling the files we are using, it causes this problem. It is recommended that you always make use of your own files as much as possible.

Issues with broken external JavaScript and CSS files

If we use external JavaScript and CSS files and they no longer exist or the link is incorrectly inserted, this problem occurs. It is recommended to always use your own files as much as possible.

Pages need more than 3 clicks to be reached

It is recommended that all pages be within 3 clicks to be reached. This will also make it easier for the robot to reach as many pages as possible.
