SEO goes way beyond what SEO Audit tools like Ahrefs and Semrush offer, although these tools offer lot’s of data and great insights.

Most SEO audits check for crawling/indexing/ranking issues and opportunities. These are the three main sections within Google Search Console. But prioritising the vast amount of opportunities these tools put out is the real art of SEO-auditing.

What is SEO-Auditing?

SEO auditing is analyzing errors that hinder search engines from crawling, indexing or ranking your website on either technical, on-page or off-page SEO factors

Determining, prioritising and communicating the most crucial SEO-factors in order to change the desired outcome. Our SEO Inspectors do this in the following way:

Do you make it easy for users and search engines to navigate your website?

A (search engine) bot; eg. Googlebot visiting your website is what we call crawling. Make sure all your important pages are ‘search engine friendly’ aka ‘crawlable’,.

Most small and medium sized business have some issues regarding crawling;

  • Make sure your most important pages are crawled regularly (often daily)
  • Don’t overcomplicate crawling with technical-SEO debt

Indexing issues? We offer first checkup, no strings attached. Let’s take a look at your data!

Google dislikes and does not show millions of websites, is your website one of those?

Google is like a librarian, keeping track of what happens on the internet, and saving this in its database. This Google-database of the internet is what we call ‘the index’.

Search engines put a lot of effort in building a quality index with quality results. Make sure to build high quality website content that is up-to-date, shows your expertise, authority and trust and your indexation will improve drastically. Trust us, we have done it hundreds of times for business of all sizes and niches and in multiple locations.

There can be only one website ranking #1 on top of Google. Is your page considered ‘the best’?

For every search query a list with the most relevant results gets displayed in the SERP (Search Engine Results Page). Search engines keep track of the keyword, page, position and the amount of clicks your webpage received.

Rank higher for more keywords and get more prospective buyers visit your website. Envision what SEO brings to your business once you are able to rank, attract and convert those anonymous, but very interested, visitors into buyers and build long lasting client relations.

What SEO-Auditing agency to choose?

Depending on your business you need to find an agency that fits your need:

  • do you have a small (<100 pages) or large (>1MIO) website?
  • business type: local business, Ecommerce, publisher, SaaS, or any other vertical?
  • what SEO do you need? technical, on page, off page, news, images, …
  • do you also need campaigns on other channels?
  • do you need performance, creative or both?
  • what’s your budget? is that for one project or recurring?
  • do you have the resources to deliver on the output of your audit?
  • business-oriented or SEO-oriented?
  • pure SEO-oriented or also offering full-service and acting as a SPOC?
  • do you want a SPOC or work with lot of different partners?

We care about your business outcome first and we make sure all our work aligns with your goals. We can audit a very specific part of SEO or build a data driven digital marketing strategy.

If you want to rank high in Google you need to optimize SEO. If you want your business results to improve you need to optimize for business outcomes.

The Google algortime is different for each search and every niche, thus each audit is also fully personalized and the outcome will depend on your business and goals.

SEO check, audit or strategy?

Since everyone’s budget and requirements are different we developed a modular approach.

  • We can set up dashboards in Google Looker Studio containing Search Console data
  • We can set up regular crawls with our cloud crawlers and feed that data in Looker Studio or via another reporting platform

For each client, we conduct a periodic automated SEO check. Compare this with your daily checks of your car: tires, oil, gas all need to be in order to drive safely on a daily basis.

When you take your car for maintenance to the shop, you can compare this to a professional SEO audit. Non-performing parts are taken care of and well working parts are checked.

When you are looking for a new driving-experience you talk to an advisor. Same goes for a digital strategy, we help you turn your business goals in digital kpi’s and campaigns. Your website is our performance car. Ready to race?

The difference between free online SEO tools and a professional SEO analyst

I still remember the day Ilse came into our office. She was accompanied by her husband. Their son (he was then studying at MIT) helped them with building the website which was built on squarespace.

But they were stuck, they have created a website, and optimised for SEO. They have read every SEO-guide but they where still stuck on page 2.

We audited and optimised the website with a new site structure, navigation, UX and search terms, internal links and schema markup were optimized. The website received 600% more visits within the 3 weeks and the client’s sales increased significantly.
