Technical SEO Audits

Our SEO Technical Audit combines a full sweep of a website’s technical infrastructure and performance, allowing us to easily identify areas that can be optimised for better search engine visibility and user experience. This process involves evaluating various aspects such as website speed, mobile-friendliness, URL structure, internal linking, metadata, XML sitemaps, robots.txt, and canonical tags. 

Our process also looks at the website’s crawlability and indexability by search engines, identifying broken links, duplicate content, and potential issues with redirects or server errors. Through extensive analysis, businesses can uncover underlying technical issues that may hinder their website’s search engine rankings and take necessary actions to improve its overall performance and visibility.

Page Speed Audits

Our SEO Page Speed Audit is a comprehensive evaluation of a website’s loading speed and performance to optimise it for better search engine rankings and user experience.

By conducting a Page Speed Audit, our SEO experts can identify areas of improvement and recommend necessary changes to enhance website speed, resulting in faster load times, reduced bounce rates, improved user engagement, and ultimately, higher organic search rankings.

The purpose of an SEO Authority Audit is to identify areas of improvement and devise strategies to enhance a website’s authority, ultimately leading to higher rankings and increased organic traffic. By conducting a thorough SEO Authority Audit, brands can gain valuable insights into their online authority and take necessary steps to establish themselves as a trusted and authoritative source within their market against competitors.
