How Can I Improve My Website Grade?

So your website grade is lower than you expected. Maybe it’s just a little lower… or maybe it’s much lower. Either way, you have some work to do.

Now that you know your site needs improvement, it’s time to buckle down and get some important changes made. Here are some general tips we can offer to start you off on the right foot, no matter which areas of your website need improvement.

Read our comments and suggestions

On your website report, you’ll see comments and suggestions for each specific area that we scored. Read these notes carefully — they often provide actionable advice and suggestions you can follow to improve your site.

If you’re confused by any of the comments, you can always contact us for clarification — we’ll be happy to offer you a more thorough explanation!

Check out the articles in our resources section

If you scored low in a certain area, and are looking for ways to improve that specific area — or need to know why, specifically, you scored so low — chances are, we have an article to help you.

Our resources section was designed to help you learn more about ways to bring up your website grade and boost your rankings. So if you scored low in links, look for the articles about links. They’re sure to put you on the right path to success!

Do research online

If you’re really committed to improving your score, you can do research online on the topics where you need improvement. Many reputable websites in the SEO industry often publish guides, articles, and tutorials that can help you build links, do keyword research, speed up your site, and improve your SEO.

Make an improvement plan with your team

Of course, you can’t simply assume that things will get better on your own. Unless you put the advice and ideas you get into action, you’ll never see your score go up!

Sit down with the team that works on your website and make a plan to improve each of the weak areas of your site. Set deadlines and goals for each area. For example, you may say you want to acquire 20 links in the next 90 days or make all your title tags unique by a certain date.

Ask for help

If you can’t do it all by yourself, we completely understand. Why should you spend all your time struggling to improve your website instead of doing what you do best — that is, running your business?

Consider asking for help from an Internet marketing or SEO company. WebFX, the creator of this tool, would be happy to give you a hand! Feel free to contact us at any time to talk to our expert web strategists about how you can improve your grade and get your site ranking better.

These are a few ways that you can improve your website grade, no matter which areas on your report needed work. We wish you luck, and can’t wait to see you again when you come back to run a new report!
