Trying out sitescore

Have you tried out Sitescore?

It's a free tool which rates how well designed, popular and accessible your website is.

I tested out my ah ok lah blog. So here are the results:

Summary
This report tested 5 pages of http://ok-lah.blogspot.com (using Sitescore v1.8.2)
Marketing How well marketed, and popular the website is. 3.1
Design How well designed and built the website is. 8.8
Accessibility How accessible the website is, particularly to those with disabilities. 6.2
Experience How satisfying the website is likely to be. 9.7
Visitor rating Average user rating for this site's design (website needs more votes) Not enough votes
(Vote for this site)
Overall Summary score for this website. 5.9

Visitor feedback
How visitors have rated the design of this website (from one vote):
10/10 100.0%

Good / bad points
Warning point - This website appears to be rarely visited
Warning point - This website appears to be in violation of the British Disability Discrimination Act
Excellent point - This website is very quick to respond
Excellent point - Design makes proper use of modern technology (no table-based layout)

Rating summary (0.0 / 10)- Popularity ranking: Your website appears to be visited so rarely that there is not accurate popularity information available - i.e. it is not in the top 10 million or so websites. This may not be the case if your website is only a few months old.

Recommendations: You can usually increase repeat visitors, by offering useful services or valuable content on your website (e.g. login area, downloads, forums). Ensure that your website is well linked to by others, and that you have submitted it effectively to all the relevant search engines. You should also ensure that your website is effectively designed to be promoted online - e.g. it makes proper use of titles, meta tags etc.

Rating summary (0.0 / 10)- Popularity on Google
Based on your webpage title, we guessed that your website / company name is "ah ok lah". In the text on your homepage, these appear to be the most significant phrases:

1. simply different
2. malaysia boleh
3. blog
4. add
5. permalink
6. del
7. labels
8. comments
9. icio
10. post

We took the top 3 phrases and searched for them in Google, along with your website/company name.

No matches on Google were found at all.

The includes searches for ah ok lah, blog, malaysia boleh, simply different.

I don't agree with the above findings as my blog is #1 for ah ok lah on Google.

Recommendations: If your website is more than a month old, you should always aim to score within the top 10 results for a search for your website or company name, at least. Firstly, make sure your website is properly programmed, and makes proper use of title, heading and meta-tags - in particular your homepage. Ensure that your website contains text-based content that is relevant to those searching for your website. Then submit your website to all the search engines and applicable free directories you can.

Rating summary (1.5 / 10) - British legal requirements All pages were found in violation of the current W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

This website may be unlawful in Britain. The British Disability Discrimination Act makes it unlawful to discriminate against a disabled person by refusing to provide any service provided to members of the public - including websites.

Recommendations: Pages should be redesigned to meet the W3C standards.

Rating summary (1.5 / 10) - Use of page titles All of your webpages have the same title: "ah ok lah - I am simply different".

Google and other search engines will not be able to easily determine the content within your different pages, and will mark you down accordingly.

Unique titles also help promote your website better for keywords you specify inside them.

We found the following unique page titles:

Page title No of times used
ah ok lah - I am simply different - 5 times

Recommendations: Make sure that each of your webpages has a different title where appropriate. If your website is properly content managed this process can be automated.
Not possible as this is a blog hosted on Blogger and my blog name will appear on all pages.

Rating summary (3.5 / 10) Size of pages Webpages are larger than they need to be, and will take a fair while to display. This is particularly important for the homepage.

Rating summary (5.3 / 10) No of images We found an average of 55.6 images per page, this is high and will make the website slower to display.
However, there appears to be good variety in the images within this website (14.8 unique images per page).

Recommendations: Consider reducing the number of images per page. Often lots of small images can be combined into a lesser number of larger images, increasing the speed at which pages display.

Rating summary (6.5 / 10) - Links to About 97 other websites were found linking to this website. (97 quality links, out of 97). The website is reasonably well linked to, although there is room for improvement.

Recommendations: A large number of web directories, news and affiliate websites can be encouraged to link to you for free. Over time any reasonably successful website should pick up additional links as a matter of course.

Rating summary (8.4 / 10) - Speed Your website responded in 0.46 seconds, and your homepage downloaded in 1.26 seconds. This is very fast and suggests your website is running on a sufficiently powerful web server.

Rating summary (10.0 / 10) - Website icon This website includes a favourite icon. This is a nice touch.

Rating summary (10.0 / 10) - Features The following 6 features were specifically identified: Login facility, Search facility, Contact details, Frequently Asked Questions, News, Advertising or Sponsorship. Generally, our analysis detected a very positive selection of text and features.

Rating summary (10.0 / 10) - Use of Interactive Elements Your website does not appear to include any advert keywords in your source files and therefore displays correctly to the user with a spam blocker enabled.
