What is an SEO Audit?
Our SEO audit dives deep into how search engines and site visitors interact with your business’s site. This organic search audit examines components like keywords, mobile load speeds, sitemaps, redirects, and more. But the real prize comes with the audit report, which provides actionable tips you can use to improve your business site’s SEO, delivered in a language you can actually use to create your SEO strategy and implementation deliverables.
How do we perform an SEO Audit?
SEO, or search engine optimization, means making your site indexable by all the search engines out there (yeah, there are more than just Google). An organic search site review dives deep into what’s going on with your site, both on the user-facing front end and behind the scenes in the html code of your website. It examines keywords you’re using on your pages, site structure, mobile load speeds and layout, how your sitemap is indexed, if 404s and 301s are properly managed… the list goes on.
Have no clue what all that technical jargon means? That’s OK. At its core, our team of SEO experts will look at every facet of your site and provide actionable tips to improve your site in the eyes of the all-powerful search robots. You’ll walk away with a prioritized list of changes that can immediately help improve your keyword rankings (and therefore visibility in search engine results) when implemented.
What is included in an SEO Audit?
As one of the best SEO companies, we don’t follow a one-size-fits-all approach to our SEO site reviews. We know your brand has unique needs, so we tailor your audit to address your specific website. The website audit project kicks off with a discovery session where we learn about your company, marketing needs, and target audience. From there, we do a deep dive into your website, focusing on a few core segments such as technical SEO components, content strategy, and site performance. We use a host of tools to analyze every aspect of your site to generate a comprehensive SEO audit report, which will tell you the state of SEO on your site, as well as provide actionable opportunities to improve organic rankings, traffic, and lead generation.
At the end of the audit, your account team will walk you through every insight in the audit report. Whether you a confident webmaster who can talk internal linking with the best of them or you struggle to comprehend organic search tactics at all, your SEO expert will work with you to ensure you understand our findings and can confidently apply and execute the changes to your site without affecting user experience.

How much does an SEO Audit cost?
The cost of an inbound organic site review can range based on whether we only do a technical SEO audit or if we do some keyword research, review past off-page link building tactics, or spending time in your Google Analytics account. Even though there are free seo audit tools available online, it does take the experience of an SEO expert to deal with things like duplicate content along with the knowledge of an inbound marketing pro to understand how to prioritize the findings against other channels particularly paid search and social media as they have direct interaction with your SEO and content strategy.
