Our SEO audit services include everything necessary to set your website up for success. Depending on your needs, you can choose a technical SEO audit, an audit of on-page SEO elements, an audit of off-page SEO elements, backlink audit, and competitor SEO audits.

1. Technical SEO Audit

Technical infrastructure is a vital part of your overall SEO success. Optimizing the technical parts of your website works together with high-quality content to push your website rankings higher. Technical SEO is a cornerstone of high-performing websites. But the technical part can get, well, technical.

Our technical SEO audit services include all the basics like speed, schema markup, mobile experience, and crawl errors. But we go above and beyond to cover areas that many agencies leave out of their SEO audits. Our technical SEO audit checklist includes examining the website code, architecture and structure, backend plugins, user experience, and more to verify that everything is working as it should.

2. On-Page SEO Elements

On-page SEO, sometimes called on-site SEO, is just what it sounds like — tweaking elements on a website to improve the search engine rankings. Optimizing everything from the content to the HTML source code makes it easier for search engines and users alike to know what your website is about.

While it is important to audit on-page SEO elements like content optimization, title tags, heading tags, meta descriptions, URLs, and internal linking, this is where many agencies stop. However, as a leading on-page SEO agency, we go beyond the basics. Our SEO website audit includes other important considerations like strong calls-to-action, schema mark-up, website architecture, and UX/UI design.

3. Off-Page SEO Elements

Off-page SEO picks up where on-page SEO leaves off. Also called off-site SEO, this covers ranking factors that are not on your website like backlinks, domain authority and trustworthiness. While the only one who knows the specifics of Google’s search algorithm is Google, it’s estimated that off-page SEO elements factor about 50% into how well you rank.

Our SEO audit service includes taking a close look at how well your website’s off-page SEO elements are performing. We’ll audit your domain authority, page authority, social media metrics, backlinks, and other elements.

4. Backlink Audits

Backlinking is one of the most important aspects of off-page SEO. A backlink is a link from an external website that directs back to your website. Search engines use backlinks to determine how valuable and relevant content on a website is.

During a SEO backlink audit, we’ll see how many backlinks your website has, who is linking to your website, the anchor text that’s used, the recency of these links, the authority of websites linking to you, and other factors of backlinks.

5. Competitor SEO Audits

A competitor’s website can be a wealth of information that you can use to optimize your webpages. A SEO audit of your competitors’ websites can give you a better picture of how they’re performing in the search rankings, the strategies they’re using the do well, and what you can do to try and outrank them.

Your competitor SEO audit report will show you who your top search competitors are, the keywords they rank for, a content audit of their sites, estimated organic traffic and much more.

How We Conduct Technical SEO Audits

While we audit SEO a little differently for each client, the foundation remains the same. At the high level, this is how we perform SEO technical audit services:

  1. Crawl the website. We’ll use tools that examine every single page of your site and look for things like duplicate content, broken links, redirects, too little content, and other factors that might be influencing your search engine rankings.
  2. Examine on-page technical SEO factors. Elements like page titles, meta descriptions, header tags, website structure, and linking all have a big impact on how well your site ranks. During this stage of the SEO audit, we’ll check the technical factors to find anything that needs to be fixed.
  3. Check site speed and page metrics. Everything from how quickly your page loads to the bounce rate of your website factors into your website performance. Analyzing these metrics can help us discover opportunities for improvement.
  4. Analyze off-page SEO elements. Your website performance is impacted by more than just the content on the page. We’ll dive into backlinks, competitors’ keyword rankings, and social media mentions. This gives you a good sense of where you fit in the larger picture of the search engine results page, and it helps you use you learn what you need to do to outperform your competitors.
