What is a Technical SEO Audit?
A technical SEO Audit is the process of reviewing your website to identify elements which can be worked on in-line with Google’s best practices to improve your organic performance. A full website audit will review all factors which could be impacting your performance all findings are then delivered in a document with clear actions allowing your web development team to implement and improve your SEO.
A full technical audit should form a solid part of your overall SEO strategy.
Why is an SEO Audit Important?
A technical audit can help identify areas in which Google and other search engines might be struggling when crawling your website. This is important as Google needs to find all core pages to know how to rank them for related search terms.
If your website isn’t easy to find or takes a long time for Google to access this can impact how you rank on Google for your chosen search terms. This is an example of optimising for indexation and crawl efficiency, one of many technical issues we check for in a technical SEO audit.
The audit process we carry out uses a range of leading tools to give us the very best insights on how to improve your site performance. I take the time to review your website in detail and complete this full audit highlighting a range of issues and how these can be improved over time.

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.
