What is an SEO audit for?

An SEO audit is a detailed report showing an overview of your website in its current state as well as your rankings and keywords.

Several applications are used to gather different information about your website, such as your Google Analytics, Google Search Console, and more. Using the diverse information, I can come up with recommendations and actions to implement to improve your website optimization.


An SEO Audit is simply a plant helping you create a strategic search engine optimization (SEO) plan that is also used to guide you with the digital actions your company should take.

The audit itself is a reliable source of information which you can build a SEO strategy that will help your website to rank higher.

The report is also the steppingstone, remember and SEO strategy is modified and maintained throughout the course of a year. (And continually after that.)


SEO Audit-Why you need one

What are the aspects of a website an SEO audit analyzes?

Every website is different, and unique. The variations come in the form of the site architecture, target audience, and of course business goals. These are the things that examined and research during the audit.

Some websites, do require additional modifications, but any SEO site audit should include the following:

Website keywords and semantics analysis to determine which queries are the most interesting, where the traffic potential is the strongest and to build a semantically sound SEO architecture.

Studying the competition gaining an understanding of their on-site and off-site strategies and how each website performs. Allowing me to gain an insight of the methods they rely on and to use them as inspiration to improve upon them achieving better results and beat them in the search results.

Traffic and search engine position and give insight into a website’s history. Should the website already perform well in terms of SEO the insight will be different.

Content Audit, the semantics, the markup or the architecture of the website is a good way to know if the site we are preforming a technical SEO audit is well build and well optimized.

A technical SEO audit investigates the website’s speed its mobile friendly or the presence of schema.org-type rich snippets. The more efficient the website, the better google will see it and crawl it.


An off-site SEO audit studies the website’s link building strategy. I’ll go through your backlinks and anchors assessing their quality.
