What is a content audit?

A content audit is a vital part of any content marketing strategy as it analyses any content you have on your website to find where improvements need to be made. Any content audit will involve:

  1. Finding what you have through content cataloguing and categorisation.
  2. Analysing your content through various metrics to see what’s performing and what’s not
  3. Recommending the improvements that need to be made

Why do a content audit?

We carry out SEO content audits to better understand a website and to discover easy ways to help it rank better, reach its desired audience faster and provide a clearer path to conversions.

Many websites are built over years, with new services added, weekly blogs and an everchanging roster of products. This means that sometimes the content can start to feel disjointed, out of date or irrelevant to your current offering and audiences.

You might have dated blogs, service pages that don’t hit current EEAT guidelines or product pages that aren’t mobile-friendly.

A content audit is carried out to help find any issues and suggest where changes can be made as part of a content marketing strategy.

Be Helpful. Be Experts. Be Relevant

More and more, Google is looking for highly original, relevant and helpful content. Through the Helpful Content Update and its E-E-A-T (Experience – Expertise – Authority – Trustworthiness) guidelines, it is putting the focus on websites to provide content of the highest quality.

At Edge45, we are constantly keeping up to date with Google’s everchanging requirements. And add any new recommendations into our audits.

But in the end, what Google – and your audience – wants and needs is content that helps them to do what they need to do in the easiest way possible. And that’s what our content audits can help your sites to do.
