The Code to Text Ratio is the percentage of the actual text that a particular web page has. The code refers to the HTML code that is embedded on the page; while, the text is the actual write-up on or written content on the page. Higher Text to HTML ratio indicates a better user experience.
Having a high text to code ratio will help increase the chance of your website getting a better rank in search engine results. Most search engines use the code to text ratio, so it gives you a leading advantage over your competitors and across all search engines when you have a higher text to HTML ratio on your website.
If excessive HTML code is added to a web page, it can lead to an increased loading time on a visitor’s browser. Hence, it will make the user experience unsatisfactory because most web page visitors have a very low tolerance for slow page loading speed.
This is the reason why we have developed this code to text ratio tool. It is capable of extracting text from paragraphs as well as the anchor text from HTML code on a page, then calculates the content ratio.
