Washington DC seo for associations : Manufacturer
Out of 22 on page elements reviewed, our SEO audit tool recorded 4 errors and 8 warnings for improvement for this manufacturing association based in Washington, DC. The term used to find them in Google was "Manufacturing Leadership Program". Though this site has a variety of issues, they have a seriously strong back-link popularity profile. It is so strong, it outweighs many of their minor technical errors and lack of in-depth content. According to MOZ they have a domain authority of 74 and over 24 million back-links from over 3,000 separate domains. So, even though they have technical search engine optimization problems, they still show up in the top ten of the search engines for their targeted term.
Don't fix it if it ain't broke! Not True!
Though that's a fine saying, but in todays world it's not really good enough to be "top ten". As you can see from the screen shot, they are way down below the fold, and in mobile, even further down. So, even though they have top ten ranking, we recommend they consider the minor adjustments to try to move into the top position. Given their current DA, and back-links, the minor adjustments should produce top 5 results in 30-60 days.

Meta description analysis:
Though this site does use the meta description tag, it is not optimized. They are only using 86 characters out of a possible to 160-300.
*SEO Tip: We suggest utilizing this important meta tag with target words, and using active tense verbs. For example: "Nams specifically designed executive leadership program, helps manufacturing executives achieve success through networking and effective policy change lobbying."
Meta Keyword Tag
Oddly, this page has a meta keyword tag with the phrase "webpage" in it. This is completely irrelevant, but it doesn't matter. The entire keyword tag should be removed.
SEO Tip: Do not use meta keyword tags at all, anywhere. Google ignores them and Bing seems them as spam. * We checked Bing for the keyword phrase and the target website is not seen in the top ten search results at all.
