Our 200 Point SEO Audit has been developed over many years of auditing websites and managing SEO website migrations.
Search engines rank websites and deliver them to users through search results. This makes it extremely easy for users to find pages and content that’s relevant to their immediate needs without a significant expenditure of time or effort. Search engines make all of this possible through a process known as indexing.
When a search engine indexes your site, their system attempts to crawl through every page of your site and use information from your pages to create a database entry representing your website and your content. This entry contains more than 200 individual metrics, and is what search engines use to decide which results to return for a given search, and the order in which to display them.
These complex search engine algorithms that are used to rank websites are kept under wraps by each search engine. Search engines themselves compartmentalise different components of their algorithm within their organisations and are run by different teams.
An SEO Audit is the first step to any SEO engagement with Bravr. With over 20 years experience in SEO working for websites across different industries, we’ve developed an SEO audit process to thoroughly examine sites.
SEO site audits are either as one-off project to audit less experience internal SEO resources, or as part of a longer term SEO retainer to help you formulate an SEO roadmap and strategy.
Our technical SEO audits are typically delivered as a document with explanations as to each of our findings, and unlike other SEO agencies we provide suggested solutions your developers. Having an SEO audit which is just a list of problems doesn’t help you solve your problems.
We work with you and your team to implement solutions to issues raised in the audit. Depending on how you are setup with (i) internal development resources, (ii) third-party web development agency or (iii) we can implement for you.
In each case what you can expect is a very detailed audit, which will not only highlight any issues you are having, it will highlight opportunities with prioritisation and difficulty to implement.
With our grassroots coming from web development, we understand that building a website thats great for users may not always be great for search engines. We’re able to not only identify issues and quick technical SEO wins, we can support implementation of solutions and/or compromises for best practice SEO without negatively impacting user experience.
There isn’t a global standard for website design, meaning there are hundreds of thousands of unique websites. While a great CMS simplifies creating an aesthetically pleasing website, few platforms make it easy “out of the box” for search engines to index pages and content.
As part of our SEO audit, a lot of time and energy is spent on the technical aspects of the site, this underpins the entire site much like a foundation for your home. We have to ensure the site meets our minimum best practices technically speaking.
On Page Optimisation (Relevance)
This is commonly how people understand SEO as the “content on a web page” in reality SEO is so much more.
On page optimisation is a critical component to any SEO campaign, through on page SEO optimisation we help search engines understand your content.
Our SEO audit process will check through the commonly used On Page Optimisation factors such as the content, Meta Titles, Meta Descriptions, readability on a page by page basis.
We’ll highlight any issues with your on-page SEO in our SEO audit.
Internal Linking (Navigation / Architecture)
The hierarchy of your website from an SEO perspective is very important. For larger sites with thousands of pages even more so.
Both the placement of links and the anchor text are also important. For example if your site uses the classic “read more” as the only internal link to a deeper URL text then this isn’t ideal from an SEO perspective.
Often the most key pages are at the bottom of your hierarchy several clicks from the homepage, we’ll review your internal linking and make suggestions to surface money pages buried in your sites architecture.
Our SEO audit reviews your sites internal linking and hierarchy, highlighting both problems and opportunities to improve internal linking.
So whilst the scoring systems used by Ahrefs, SemRush and Moz do not have a direct impact on your ranking in Google, it does provide guidance and insights when comparing your site vs competitors.
We’ll compare your websites authority vs competitors and provide insights on strategies to increase your authority through programmes link SEO link Building
