    Cool Website Content length.

    Your page has a low volume of Text Content which Search Engines can interpret as 'thin content' which could limit it/'s ranking ability. Additionally it has been well researched that in general, higher Text Content volumes are related to better ranking ability.

    Word Count: 158

    This the result given by the SEO site https://www.seoptimer.com/. But my site has well over 1000 words.

    My site is 21 fascinating ideas on the Inspired Word of Eternal God

    Please assist. Is it correct to say 158 words.

    Thank you.

    Wilfred.

    Your site has a lot of obsolete CSS. Mostly old html4 attributes.
    e.g. background= /Images/bannerbg4.jpg
    You should use a proper style attribute instead: style="background-image:url(images/bannerbg4.jpg);"
    or move it to your stylesheet: .table1 {background-image:url(images/bannerbg4.jpg);}

    After ~158 words you have an incorrect end tag: </p?

    you should validate your site (link in my signature) before testing it at seoptimer

    Given the gibberish markup, lack of separation of presentation from content, style="" attributes all over the place, tables for layout, redundant/confusing semantics (like putting more emphasis inside a h3), and general overall outdated site-building methodology, I wouldn't be surprised if their parser just threw up its hands and walked away.

    That said, do NOT become overly reliant on what automated 'tools' like seooptimizer, it's a cute guide but a LOT of what they will ding you for is more black-hat hoodoo-voodoo advice than actual legitimate good advice... to the point I have the nasty feeling the people who made that tool don't know enough about SEO to be giving anyone advice on how to do it.

    For example their bull**** dings my sites for using underscores in my 'friendly URL's" as if underscore is somehow magically not user-friendly. It's a halfwitted bull**** claim based entirely on their personal preference and having jack huffing s**t to do with SEO. They'll ding you for not having a robots.txt even when there is nothing you want blocked -- apparently Joe forbid you have a website where you don't want to set nofollow or noindex on anything. They'll ding you for that outdated XML sitemap bull**** that if your site properly uses anchors to link to all its content is a pointless redundancy and AGAIN is just black-hat dimestore hoodoo and not a legitimate SEO concern. They ding you for not wasting time on some mentally enfeebled analytics package -- since apparently there's something 'wrong' with just gathering THE EXACT SAME RELEVANT INFORMATION from your server logs using a tool like webalizer or analog.

    Learn what real SEO is, what proper semantics is, and how to meet accessibility norms and ease up on relying on some automated tool bull**** to handle it for you. More often than not all such tools really do is make you the tool.

    THAT SAID, drag that markup and site building methodology into THIS century instead of leaving yourself stuck in 1997. It's better than the last time you asked about your site here, but it's got a LONG ways to go since you aren't even using numbered headings properly; for example how can you even HAVE <h2>/lower order when you don't even HAVE a bloody <h1> for it to indicate the start of a subsection of? Why do you have run-on sentence DIV+A for obvious lists of choices? Why are you shoving new windows down users gullets with target="" despite our having been told for two decades to STOP DOING THAT. The user wants a new window they can middle-click or ctrl+click.

    Even just simple issues like your lack of logical document structure -- since you have all sorts of excess nonsense before the actual page content... see the section you actually start with a H1 AFTER you've already used multiple H2 and H3 -- how the blazes does that make any sense?

    The multiple instances of Google Analytics loading in a content-blocking manner inside <head>, static <style> in the markup (a tag that should be removed from HTML entirely IMHO), content bearing tags before the charset <meta>, overstuffed keywords <meta>, broken robots <meta> (there is no such thing as follow and index, you want them followed and indexed DON'T DECLARE A META!) not helping matters either.

    You've got problems -- lots of 'em.

    Fully agree with this, go run your site through seositecheckup or site auditor and you will see that some auditing tools flag certain things whilst others do not, i think they are a nice guide ( if you run through a few of them ) but you should learn for yourself about the various aspects mentioned above and not rely on tools too much. Google is also constantly changing ewhat may be okk today might not be tomorrow, its best to learn for yourself and keep one ear to the ground, however never believe everything you read , there is alot of rubbish on the web regarding whats is righ and wrong in terms of coding and seo. The best thing it to do a/b testing and working with tools like analytics and webmaster tools to identify problems. It takes some time to learn on your own but will be well worth it for your own website and skills in the end.
