MY TECHNICAL SEO APPROACH

I use a range of industry-leading tools to gather data and insights needed to make the best recommendation possible on how you can improve your technical SEO. All the website audits I conduct highlight every area which could be improved or pose a potential technical issue for Google and how you and your development team can improve these for better visibility in search.

This means your development team has the most thorough information to make a data-backed decision on how to improve your website while helping educate your development team on the importance of technical SEO.

I’ve performed technical audits for companies of all sizes some of which have undergone a full international launch and are looking to ensure the recommended best practices by Google are followed.

I approach technical SEO audits with one simple focus to ensure your website has every possible element resolved to ensure your long-term SEO growth is not impacted. To ensure I can deliver the best SEO audit all I usually need access to is Google Search Console & Google Analytics which will help give me more data and insights on how to audit your website.

COMMON USE CASES FOR A TECHNICAL SEO AUDIT

If it’s unclear how a technical SEO audit might be able to help your business the below will show some of the common use cases for various company sizes.

Small businesses can benefit from a full website audit and typically working with a freelancer allows you to have a skilled specialist on hand to deliver a range of technical recommendations that will drive your overall performance.

My typical approach to auditing smaller sites is to identify “Low Cost, high reward” items that are likely to have a more immediate impact without needing huge amounts of development work.

As most smaller websites are based on Shopify or WordPress I can usually for an additional cost help support with the implementation of these recommendations.

If you’re a medium based website typically over time lots of changes will have taken place leaving plenty of opportunity for a full technical audit to un-cover new areas for improvement and growth.

A full SEO audit will un-cover lots of low hanging fruit opportunities for technical improvements that will almost certainly have an improvement on your bottom line performance.

Having had previous experience with brands such as Heineken, Nestle, Les Mills & Air New Zealand I know some of the custom systems and issues that can exist within larger enterprise & FMCG brands.

A full audit for an enterprise site can be delivered in a simple way that all members can understand and digest the opportunity available from brand managers to the full development team.
