Not All SEO Audits Are Created Equal!
An SEO Audit is much more than a checklist or a list of to-do items churned out by some automated tool. I use a range of different SEO tools to identify issues with:
- Technical SEO (e.g. crawl-ability, site structure, etc.)
- Content (e.g. missing meta titles, duplicate meta descriptions, duplicate content, etc.)
- Site Authority (e.g. inbound link opportunities, spammy links which negatively affect SEO, etc.)
More importantly, I outline a list of prioritised actions or “fixes” based on your specific technical constraints and business requirements.
I’ve had clients come to me for a second opinion on “SEO Audits” that have simply been an automated output of actions by a generic site crawling tool without taking into account the context of the website or business being audited. Blindly following these checklists can be a costly mistake – the reality is that SEO cannot be automated. “Fixing” one SEO issue identified by these automated audits may create a new one or may conflict with another more important business or technical requirement.
In short, CONTEXT IS EVERYTHING.
I take the time to apply context to SEO audit findings and work with your content, development and hosting teams to improve SEO performance without compromising other goals.
