You can’t fix your problems if you don’t know what they are; understand your site with an SEO audit.
Is your website not ranking as highly as it should be? There are lots of reasons for why this might be, both on and off your website. A comprehensive SEO audit is the fastest and most reliable way to find out what’s going wrong, and how to make things right.
Think of an SEO audit as a medical health check for your website. Over time, things can start to go wrong if we don’t look after them properly. There may have been mistakes in the beginning that have never been corrected. An SEO audit will identify all of these problems and come up with solutions to fix them going forward.
During our audit process, we will closely and comprehensively examine your website with our auditing tools. And once we have a prognosis, we will put together actionable advice on how to fix your website so that it starts performing better in the organic search rankings.
An SEO audit consists of many different parts. Here are a few:
Backlink report. A backlink audit will closely look at all of the links pointing to your website.
Why we love this: Some links can actually be harmful to your rankings, and in this case, it’s about developing the right strategy to deal with them. But a backlink report is also a good place to assess the authority of your site, and to see how it can be strengthened with good links for a rankings boost.
Internal/site link structure report. This report will closely look at the structure and health of your website from the inside out.
Why we love this: A good internal link structure on a website is just as important as a healthy backlink profile. Poorly structured links, 404 pages, and more can all harm rankings, not to mention generate a poor user experience for your visitors. This internal link structure report will highlight all of your internal “pain points” and how they can be fixed.
Content optimization report. This report will look at the condition of your on-page content and see if it meets the optimal standards expected from a search engine.
Why we love this: Is your site plagued with duplicate content that can hurt your organic rankings? Are your page titles, SEO titles and meta descriptions an appropriate length? Do your service pages suffer from “thin content”? The aim of this report is to identify all these problems and more, with recommendations on how to optimize the content going forward.
Technical health check. Making sure your technical house is in order is really important. This report will look at any underlying issues with your website.
Why we love this: There are lots of technical issues that could also be harming your organic rankings. Such as site loading times, sitemap configurations, spam malware, HTTP status codes and more. If your site isn’t mobile-friendly, that can be a massive detriment to how your SEO will perform. This technical health check report will uncover all of these issues.
Image optimization report. Here we will closely examine your image files.
Why we love this: This report will look at any imagery you have on the website. If the image files are too large, they could be slowing down loading times on the website. And if they aren’t (alt. text) optimised for SEO, then you could be missing out on additional keyword benefits and increased user engagement. This is just one other important component of your SEO audit report.
A future-proof site strategy. Once the prognosis is in, it’s time for the cure.
Why we love this: Even if your SEO audit returns poor results, that’s OK! Because the important thing to know is — everything here is fixable. That’s exactly why we run these reports, so that we can get your website to the top of its game. Here we will identify exactly what we found that was wrong with your site, along with a strategy that can easily be implemented to get it up to full health.
Want to take your website from “okay” to “oh, that’s great”? Then an SEO audit is right for you.
