Claimed

Language claimed in HTML meta tag should match the language actually used on the web page. Otherwise Kwani.org can be misinterpreted by Google and other search engines. Unfortunately we cannot identify language used on the page (probably there is a mix of languages, too little text or something else) and no language is claimed in <html> or <meta> tags either. Our system also found out that Kwani.org main page’s claimed encoding is iso-8859-1. Changing it to UTF-8 can be a good choice, as this format is commonly used for encoding all over the web and thus their visitors won’t have any troubles with symbol transcription or reading.

HTTPS certificate

SSL Certificate

Kwani.org has no SSL certificate. Web browsing can be safer with HTTPS connection, so we suggest that it should be obtained for this site.

Normal result

Visitor World Map

Country of origin for 21.4% of all visits is Kenya. It lies approximately 7310 miles away from the server location (United States) and such a long distance can negatively affect website speed, as it takes some time for data to travel back and forth between those places. That’s why one of the best ways to speed up Kwani.org page load time for the majority of users is moving the server to Kenya or just closer to the user base.

Social Sharing Optimization

Open Graph description is not detected on the main page of Kwani. Lack of Open Graph description can be counter-productive for their social media presence, as such a description allows converting a website homepage (or other pages) into good-looking, rich and well-structured posts, when it is being shared on Facebook and other social media. For example, adding the following code snippet into HTML <head> tag will help to represent this web page correctly in social networks:
