My client used https://checkpagerank.net/index.php to check his website. He was bothered that the "Topic" was an incorrect topic (Arts) and the "Title" was "N/A".
It's a WordPress website and the home page DOES have a title. I have never heard of this Topic and my WP programmer searched in his website and didn't find anything that was called Topic.
I checked one of my websites and the Topic was also a weird choice, but my Title was fine.
I told him that these free tools are not perfect, but he was still concerned.

The question is do either of these affect his SEO? It would help me to get another answer to tell him.

    Check page rank is using the analyze-my-site to keep you on their site. They are selling backlinks. They are not about getting you accurate anything.


    So, their system cannot figure the title and the topic, so what?


    Have your client look into the webmaster console at the keywords that show up... or run the site through Google's keyword planner... What matters is what keywords people find you by, what keywords Google thinks your site is about.


    You have a muffler store and you run the site through Google keyword planner tool and the first keyword is flowers and the next one is cemetery, you worry. If it comes with muffler price and break pads at the top, you're doing fine. You just need some SEO to move to the top of the pack. What some other party thinks your site is or is not about, not that important, don't you think?

    That site has had zero relevancy since Google stopped publicly providing PageRank data in 2013.

      Thanks Mike. That will help me to convince him to ignore it.

      Not true at all, they just stopped making pagerank public in 2013

      Now about to say, I agree with the first commenter that they are trying to sell you some sort of the backlink package to establish "relevancy"

      Traffic is nowhere to be found in technical SEO per se, it sounds like what they are doing is using a cheap knockoff AI program to attempt to determine topical relevancy, somewhat similar to what majestic uses but probably nowhere near as good and if it was off on your site as well, they probably are not using majestic API for that either because majestic tends to be fairly accurate.

      So yeah, the cheap tools are never to be 100% trusted. The paid tools are only capable of giving you a general idea, even the top-of-the-line premium tools will give you half of the information Google is working with.

        Huh? Not true, you say, then say the same thing. Because it is true.

        WTF was untrue about what I said? I said they stopped providing the data publicly in 2013.

        You might want to try reading my post again.

    I think you should be worried (somewhat). I've tried the tool on my site and other than PageRank and cPR score, other metrics were spot on.

    So your topic is Arts, that could be an indicator that Google thinks your website is about that topic. That would not be good if your in other niches like business, because topic relevancy is a thing in SEO.

    If I were you, I'd carefully review the pages of the website to see if there's anyway that Google could misunderstood my intention, especially in places like title tags, URL, schema, etc.
