Benefits of Our Data
The ‘text ratio’ otherwise known as the ‘Text to Code ratio’ is the percentage of a web page that’s text content. It’s considered widely by SEO’s that search engines prefer webpages to have a high text to code ratio.
The ratio of text to code on a HTML/Text page.
This is always represented by a number from 0 to 1 in the form of a percentage. So, 0.1 would be 10%, meaning that just 10% of the page is text-based content and 90% is code.
Page is not HTML/Text
We provide this ratio and it is best seen in the light of competitor data, although it is easy to see if a text ratio is very low.
This is a simple metric and not the most significant indictor of SEO performance, that said comparing the text ratio of pages on your site to a competitive benchmark can prove insightful in the following ways:
Example 1: Is the Ratio Good?
If your text ratio is above the competitive average, then you can consider your text ratio to be good.
Example 2: Is the ratio Bad?
If your text ratio is below the competitive average, then you can consider your text ratio to be poor.
