HostGator SEO Tools Report


The report that HostGator SEO Tools generates for your site is based on the analysis of your site and is displayed in various sections based on SEO topics in an easy-to-read report.

Each section of the report is broken down into the following table to describe what information is covered in the topic. Under each section, the Fix these Issues will take you to the correlating tasks under Your Plan.


Your Report starts with your overall score; the higher the score, the better. The score is calculated with an algorithm that considers all aspects of your site that influence SEO. Your score can fluctuate greatly, so don't get too hung up on changes from one day to the next, but focus on completing your tasks in each section.

Here you can see how much traffic the site is getting, your rank on Alexa™, track the number of visitors you have, and where they come from with Google Analytics. Check out your sites' keyword rankings with the main search engines, Google, Bing, and Yahoo, compared to over 15 days or 3 months.

Your site will take at least several months to get a high ranking. If your site is new, it may take some time for your site's data to be displayed in the report.

These numbers are important because it demonstrates that your website has content of value that people are willing to share and endorse socially. Your added competitors will also be displayed with their data on social media shares.
