Content is not where search engines expect to find it

Expression Studio 4.0

These rules identify content or markup that is not located where search engines are likely to look for it.

Insufficient content overview

Insufficient content is content or code that would improve search-engine rankings but is not where search-engine analysis is likely to find it. This generally results in a reduced search-engine ranking.

The Microsoft Expression Web SEO Checker evaluates your site using a subset of known search-engine behavior patterns.

The Expression Web SEO Checker detects and reports the following conditions.
