Once you do that, the report will give you an overview of the best- and worst-performing sites from various parameters: SEO score, traffic, speed score, and social score.

The overall ranking is from 1 to 4, where 1 is the best-performing site and 4 is the worst-performing. In this case as the above chart, MOZ won with a total score of 83.
