Redirects

As for redirects, our browser reached this domain in two steps. The first redirect led to http://www.consumerreports.org/, then it was forwarded to http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/index.htm, and finally we managed to open this domain. We strongly recommend that the redirects should be reduced, as the more redirects a site has, the slower it loads.

It is strongly recommended that the host server should be changed or the hosting provider should be requested to give a different (separate) IP address for this domain.

Visitor World Map

Country of origin for 36.8% of all visits is Belarus. It lies approximately 4680 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 Consumer.org page load time for the majority of users is moving the server to Belarus or just closer to the user base.

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:
