A technical SEO audit is one of the first stages to a successful digital marketing campaign. Unlike some of our other audit services, this report is generated through high-detailed manual checks on a website. Sifting through the websites on a granular basis ensures that any technical issues are identified early. On completion, our technical SEO audit will be able to identify and resolve any problems during the beginning stages of a campaign.
Consider a technical SEO audit as a general medical check up on your website’s search engine optimisation. Without it, you may be suffering from some significant issues that could be hindering your organic search performance. We often come across websites that, despite having impeccable on-page SEO, can’t get past common technical SEO problems like keyword cannibalisation, redirect chains and canonicalisation. Our technical SEO audit is designed to unearth all such issues – large and small alike – to know exactly what needs to improve.

So, what is technical SEO?
Within the wider SEO bubble there are several derivatives. Technical SEO is just one of them. It covers a number of areas, including site architecture, site speed, schema markup and more. When these elements are combined together, they ensure your website is in a fit state for search engines to crawl the content effectively.
Website crawler support is at the very heart of technical SEO. It ensures your website is in the optimum condition to be crawled by a search engine web crawler.
Once our technical SEO audit gives your website a clean bill of health, you can rest assured that your website is a perfect position in terms of crawlability and indexation. This is an important landmark to achieve, because you just cannot think of investing in content marketing campaigns unless you know for sure that your website is SEO-ready.
Over the years, we – at HQ SEO – have built an extensive technical SEO audit checklist. Our bespoke process enables us to analyse a large amount of website data to determine what and where the core issues on a website lie. Using industry leading software, we are able to perform advanced SEO checks that cover a wide area of technical issues. These checks include:
From this crawl data, we build out a tailored actionable document that highlights any findings in an easy to understand language.
We rank the severity of issues which arise from the audit. These are then added to our internal project management action planner in order for our technical SEO team to work on. The work usually begins with short-term goals – claiming quick wins with major and obvious fixes. Once there, we develop a long-term plan of action to resolve each and every deep lying technical SEO issue to ensure that your website doesn’t lose out on organic visibility.
A technical audit allows us to determine what is holding the website back and determine how Google spiders see the site. This is the platform which the entire campaign is built from and why we have been successful in resolving complicated issues in as little as 6 weeks. Some of these issues can involve re-designs of scripts, landing pages and even the entire website. The goal here, however, is to make sure that every change we recommend and undertake is meant to drive the ROI upwards over time.
