What is a technical SEO audit?

A technical SEO audit looks at your website’s technical health and how that impacts its ability to rank for keywords. It will check that your site is optimised for all types of search engines. A technical SEO audit can cover a range of website factors such as:

  • Crawling and indexing: How Google accesses and discovers your website, making sure all pages you want indexed for search are indexed.
  • On-page health: This covers how your page is structured, H1s and titles tags, images, meta descriptions, and content duplication.
  • Page speed: How fast your page loads for users – it’s one of the most important ranking factors for Google.
  • Mobile checks: While your website may look great on a big screen, how does it look and perform on a mobile device.

These are just some of the areas our technical SEO audit services will cover. We will also look at the fine details such as crawl errors, robot.txt, hreflang errors, canonical tags, pagination, parameter handling and more.

Our Process: How we Carry out a Technical SEO Audit

We use a 200-point technical site audit covering all technical aspects of your website that could impact its ability to rank and drive important organic traffic.

We use a variety of technical SEO audit tools including:

Our expert technical SEO team also carries out manual checks to your site to provide you with our advanced technical SEO audit.

Once we have access to your website, we’ll usually ask for access to your analytic tools such as Google Analytics and Google Search Console. Using a combination of these tools and our manual checks, we’ll go through our checklist to find and record any technical issues.

This list of fixes discovered through our website technical audit is run through our P.I.E. scoring system:

  • Potential – Does the fix have potential to help you hit your goals?
  • Importance – Is it a priority page?
  • Ease – How easy is it to implement?

This provides us with a “website health” score we can use to benchmark technical health and report against. Using the above scoring system, we group the fixes and recommendations into categories: Quick Wins, High-, Medium-, or Low-priority.

As a client, an easy-to-follow technical SEO audit report will be presented back to you looking at what needs to be done over an agreed time period – usually the next 3-6 months. Each action will have an owner, whether that’s the team at Edge45, a third party developer or someone in your internal team.

Benefits of Technical SEO Audits

A website is a big beast – often with tens of thousands of pages, redirects, ever-changing menus and more. You need to keep on top of its technical health.

While many companies might have someone in charge of the website, they might not have the SEO skills or the free time to carry out a full audit.

A technical SEO audit helps pull all these issues and fixes into one easy-to-action output. We can help you to find those quick wins that could push your pages on to page one or discover some more fundamental issues that are blocking Google from crawling your website successfully.

You’ll get a plan that you can implement to help Google better understand your website, make crawling more efficient, help resolve indexing issues, and improve your core web vitals.
