Why your website needs a Technical SEO audit service company

Technical SEO differs from On-Page SEO, Local SEO, Off-site SEO and Content. If your company doesn’t have anyone looking after your website’s technical compliance, there’s a high chance it won’t be optimised and could be failing Core Web Vitals

Google bring out mini updates weekly and big updates a few times a year, so make sure your website is prepared for the next update. Even if you’re ranking well now, this could all change overnight. We’ve seen many rankings plunge following a big update, so don’t get caught off guard!

What can go wrong without Technical SEO Input?

  • You’ll lose out on organic traffic. Technical SEO plays a crucial role in improving/maintaining your website’s rankings. No matter how high-quality your content is, you won’t be able to rank if it can’t be crawled. If Google can’t find it, neither can your users. It’s as simple as that! 
  • Your users will have a bad experience. UX (User Experience) affects SEO more than ever. A technically-friendly site is a people-friendly site. If your target audience gets frustrated, they’re unlikely to convert and may look for a competitor to take their business to.
  • Slow site speed. Technical SEO involves image compression, code minification, caching, server response time and more to speed up your site (remember, site speed directly affects your rankings).
  • Mobile usability problems. Failing to address mobile issues can result in a poor user experience, leading to higher bounce rates and lost conversions.
  • Broken links & redirects. Technical SEO makes sure internal and external links work. Broken links or improper redirects can frustrate users and harm your site’s credibility (plus search engines may penalise you)
  • Security vulnerabilities. Without a technical SEO report, you won’t know if your website is vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Neglecting https or failing to secure your customer’s sensitive information can make you susceptible to hacks, data breaches and malware (never good for your business!)

Get answers to the following technical questions

  • Can search engines index and crawl your website?
  • Does your website have issues with its URL structure or redirects?
  • Is your website responsive for different screen sizes?
  • Are there duplicate content or canonicalisation issues?
  • Does your site have XML sitemaps and robots.txt files in place?

And many, many more.

Our SEO Team have over 50 years of combined technical SEO experience. Don’t risk losing out on organic traffic, giving your users a bad experience or in extreme cases – being de-ranked from Google. Technical SEO in 2023 is an absolute must if you want your business to grow.

Create a data-backed SEO strategy

We don’t just list things that are ‘wrong’ or ‘broken’ and leave you to pick up the pieces. You’ll get a list of recommendations that can be actioned by you and your developer (and us if you’d prefer).

There’s no obligation, but if you join us for an SEO retainer, we’re more than happy to liaise with your website developer ourselves so that you don’t have to. Our technical team will produce an action plan to grow your online footprint and visibility. The audit is the first step – think of the process as a list of new and exciting opportunities to improve your organic traffic. 

It’s time to start dominating organic search.
