What is Technical SEO?
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 within search engines.
The Technical SEO Audit
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.
Each audit is bespoke and in-depth, with clear explanations and actions to implement. Our team utilise a range of techniques and audit tools to analyse your website and diagnose faults, with the audit delving into everything from crawling and indexation to page speed, usability and on-page optimisation improvements. The report clearly outlines all technical issues and prioritises actionable recommendations in order to drive traffic and increase conversions.
We will conduct a full technical SEO audit of your site to find any health issues.
