Technical SEO Audit & Services

We help businesses understand what technical seo concerns are causing inefficiencies with Google crawling and ranking their website.

There are many aspects of SEO, the most common seo problems usually relate to technical SEO issues. Technical SEO includes any aspect of your website, that would keep Google from efficiently crawling and/or effectively understanding your website’s structure or content.

Executing a full technical SEO audit to uncover problems with your website’s technical elements and SERP listings, is the first step in the seo process towards optimizing your website to help you beat your competition.

We crawl your website – similar to how Google does – and extract over 90 SEO data points that correlate with crawl efficiencies and content effectiveness. Our technical search engine optimization specialist then analyze the data and build a report that outlines the data that was gathered, insights that we gained, and a prioritized list of recommendations to fix and optimize your website for users and search engines.
