Technical SEO is a process which ensures that your website is properly optimised for search engines and users, making sure that all technical fundamentals are in place before undertaking other marketing strategies.

If a website hasn’t undergone a proper technical SEO audit, it will most likely have an array of issues which will limit its potential and rankings within search engines.

The primary goals of a Technical SEO Audit is to discover any potential obstacles that search engines may be encountering while crawling a website which can lead to indexation and ranking problems.

As well as helping search engines with crawling and indexing, an audit will also suggest actions that can be made to increase the website’s search visibility. Improving conversions and usability for visitors is also key, to help facilitate the overall user experience.

Our team has many years of experience in auditing websites. Each Technical SEO audit is bespoke and in-depth, with clear explanations and actions to implement. We utilise a range of techniques and audit tools to analyse your website, with the audit delving into everything from crawling and indexation to page speed, XML sitemaps, usability and on-page optimisation improvements.

The audit report will clearly explain all technical issues with actionable recommendations. These are prioritised in order of those that will make the biggest impact to help drive traffic and increase conversions. The included spreadsheet will provide all the data necessary to demonstrate where the issue is occurring and how it should be fixed.

Our work doesn’t stop once the report has been delivered and presented. We will provide guidance and support to both yourself and your website developers to get the recommendations implemented. Within popular CMS systems like WordPress and Shopify we may also be able to fix some of the errors ourselves. After this, regular technical reviews will continue to check on the audit implementation and report back on progress and results.

Below are just a sample of the many technical areas investigated during an audit.

  • On-Page Optimisation
  • Indexation
