If your website is not performing as well as it should be or as well as you would like it to. The quickest and most effective method to figure out why is to have a full SEO audit performed. 

My SEO auditing services are completely open and honest, and they examine the technical SEO, on-page SEO, and off-page SEO of your website. 

What is an SEO audit? 

An SEO website audit, or Search Engine Optimization audit, is a review of a website that "grades" the site based on its potential to appear in the pages of search engine results (SERPs). 

This method involves carrying out a variety of analyses and reports, the purpose of which is to identify any problems that may need fixing or improving in order to increase SEO performance.

SEO Audits are necessary for all websites, not just the ones that appear to be poorly built. The fact that your website appears to be neat and well-built doesn't change the fact that first impressions can be false. 

A full internal dimension lies beneath the surface of a website, which humans are unable to see. This is the back end of the website which is crawled and read by Google. All of your hard work could be for naught if Google is unable to properly index and read the back end of your website.

Benefits of a Website SEO Audit 

Here are some of the reasons why you should engage in an SEO audit.

SEO audit benefits include: 

1. Improve website performance

The topic of website efficiency and speed frequently comes up in client inquiries about website development and SEO. An SEO audit can provide you with critical information regarding technical issues with your website. You will find out if:

When traffic increases, a poorly optimized website or database code may cause a heavy load. Modifying such code is one possible option. We'll show you how to make changes that will improve the performance of your site.

2. Optimize your content with an SEO audit

It is possible that, despite your best efforts, you are not utilizing your website's full potential. 

Each industry has its own set of services, goods, queries, and key phrases associated with them. It's crucial to choose one or more important keywords for each of your web pages. The more original and accurate they are in describing your industry, the better. 

Types of key phrases:

General phrases define your domain or services more initially but have a large number of searches. However, it is vital to assess whether or not their positioning on them is reasonable, as attaining a higher position for famous terms will be tough given the heavy competition. 

Long-tail keywords are more complex because they comprise more than two words. They will assist you in capturing the attention of users through extremely particular queries.

A comprehensive SEO audit is essential for optimizing your website content. During the audit, an expert SEO consultant will show you the keywords with the best value for your business and advise you on which texts to include them in. You will also be given guidance on how to format your articles, for example:

3. Increase your website users' satisfaction

The implementation of SEO principles will make your website more appealing to potential customers and boost their ease of use. 

It's difficult enough to persuade anyone to utilize platforms that don't work properly. Potential customers will become disillusioned fast if your website frequently shows error information or takes a long time to load material and visuals. 

By reducing errors, you can reduce the likelihood of visitors abandoning your website soon. Users are more likely to spend more time on a smoothly-operating website. Google examines user session length and website behavior. The longer time spent on a website indicates that the information is valuable and interesting, which influences the website's position in a browser.

Internet consumers also value useful industry-related publications. You may increase information reception by using suitable headings, calculations, and highlights, while internal linking will boost page navigation. 

This means you benefit twice: first, your chances of re-purchasing increase, and second, your company's reputation improves. Transparent and visually appealing content may also increase website users' willingness to surf the website, extending session time and positively influencing website positioning.

4. Improved ranking on Search Engine Results 

Following an SEO audit, you should expect to receive not only information about what is wrong with your website but also suggestions for change. Some organizations that conduct such studies also provide improvement implementation. You can do it yourself or collaborate with an outside team of professionals. If you take the time to optimize your site and implement the suggestions given, you just might find yourself on the first page of Google's search results.

5. Increase your website traffic with SEO audits

You should see an increase in traffic after making improvements to the website. This is primarily due to the increased visibility of your website in search engines. Increasing traffic frequently leads to increased conversion, which leads to an increase in sales and profitability.

When is an SEO audit necessary? 

Ideally, you should perform a website audit periodically - once a month, once a quarter, or once a year, depending on your traffic growth, competition, Google algorithm changes, etc. 

The more current your assessments are, the better you will be able to stick to your strategy and fulfill your objectives.
