3 Big Reasons to Audit

Not SEO-savvy? Wondering why an audit is necessary? Here are the three biggest reasons to get a comprehensive SEO audit…

An SEO Audit Exposes Errors

Search engines want to serve a quality product, which means your website has to be a quality product. It needs to be well-coded, it needs to be lightning fast, and it needs to have all the technical requirements that search engines are looking for. When all the bases are covered, Google will have no problem showering you with traffic. But, if your site continues to have issues, Google will bury you.

An SEO Audit Exposes Opportunities

If you’ve never had a comprehensive SEO audit then your site is probably targeting keywords that are inefficient or perhaps not targeting any relevant keywords at all <gasp!>. An SEO audit can reveal new targeting opportunities, existing content optimization opportunities, quick traffic and ranking wins, and competitor insights that can take your site to the next level.

An SEO Audit Keeps Things Up to Date

Google makes hundreds and sometimes thousands of updates to its algorithm each year. On top of that, there are theme updates to your website, plugin updates, design updates, page changes, content additions, and so on. Between all of these factors, it’s easy for your site to fall out of alignment the same way car tires fall out of alignment over time. An SEO audit is like a tire rotation and alignment for your website.

FAQ

Here are frequently asked questions about our SEO audits…

What will my return on investment be?

Here’s the thing: traffic is valuable. If you want to see how valuable it is, try to pay for it by bidding on keywords. Paying for traffic is expensive, which is why smart business owners work hard to rank for important terms organically. An SEO audit helps you do that and can ultimately be worth thousand and thousands of dollars in free traffic each month. The final number depends on your industry, business, and goals.

What's the turnaround time on an audit?

SEO audits are very comprehensive and require a lot of manual analysis. With that said, we aim to deliver your report within 10 days of ordering your audit.

If you find structural issues with my site, how do I get those fixed?

If you don’t have a developer who can fix any structural issues we might find, we can fix them for you through our Website Cheetah service at a very reasonable price. Don’t let these little costs deter you, though, structural issues are costing you *far* more in lost traffic, leads, and sales than what they cost to fix.
