What is the Text to HTML ratio?
The Text to HTML ratio indicates the amount of text on the page compared to the amount of the backend code. In other words, this metric is used to measure the amount of text content on a web page as opposed to the amount of HTML code that is required to render that page.
Is it important for SEO?
Although the Text/Code ratio has a limited impact on your Google ranking, it’s not recommended to “pump” HTML code as opposed to the actual text on the page because it can negatively affect your site. Excessive HTML code can slow down page load and make it harder for search engine robots to do their job.
