Technical Audit


Technical SEO audits identify problematic issues that limit your performance in search engines. By extracting critical technical data, you can remove restrictive barriers and increase your online visibility in search results. 

As a result of higher page ranks, you attract more high-value traffic from customers that are ready to buy. This enables you to increase profits, lower customer acquisition costs and create a solid foundation for future growth.

Top-tier ranking in search engines requires a fine balance between engaging visitors and creating high-performance pages search engines can index accurately. 

Whilst an SEO-oriented content strategy is designed to engage your audience, technical SEO is a computer language that communicates with search engine crawlers.

Search engine crawlers rely on technical indicators to index webpages. Together with keywords placement and metadata, technical information enables search engines to match webpages against search terms.

Moreover, technical audits improve the efficiency of your website. Today’s consumers expect websites to load quickly and they want to be able to navigate them easily on mobile devices.

Technical SEO audits identify where your customers are encountering friction and provide you with critical data that enables you to improve the performance of your website and deliver a free-flowing experience from landing pages to the checkout. 

A technical SEO audit is an effective solution that requires expert knowledge. With years of experience performing technical audits and SEO strategies for B2B, B2C and eCommerce companies, I have the knowledge and the expertise to provide valuable insights that will help you improve visibility in search engines.

Technical audits resolve a wide number of issues including:

  • Inefficient code Fix crawl issues 
  • Slow page load speeds 404 errors
  • Poor indexing 301 redirect
  • Missing internal links
  • HTTPS migration errors
  • Improper canonicalisation
  • Misuse of metadata
  • Title and alt tags Keyword distribution
  • Restructure sitemap Server configuration


Technical audits identify the pages on your website that could communicate with search crawlers more effectively together with determining how to improve content and search rankings.


Search engines give preference to websites that perform well and provide visitors with a smooth user-experience. Technical audits reveal customer behaviour and identify problem areas.


Consumers and search engines give preference to brands that demonstrate trust and authority. Websites that deliver a frictionless experience earn a higher domain authority score.


Low-quality links can harm your search engine rank. Removing toxic links that have a negative impact on your search rank puts you in a stronger position to appear higher in search results.


Not all keywords drive high-value traffic. A technical audit can identify which keywords are converting, which are underperforming and which are most likely to improve search performance.


When you drive high-quality traffic to a highly functional website, you cultivate more sales and receive favourable reviews from customers. All this translate to increased profits.


Today’s consumers typically start their purchasing journey with a search engine. They also have high demands and will leave a website that does not deliver an effortless user-experience. 

The technical health of your website and mobile optimisation strategy improves the user-experience and thus the overall performance of your digital marketing efforts. As a result, technical audits play a key role in the foundational success of your SEO strategy.

“Healthy, functional sites that have reached their full SEO potential have been optimized based on market and keyword research, E-A-T, content relevance to search intent, backlink profiles, and more. But they all have one thing in common: their technical SEO needs are met.” ~ Search Engine Land

“There isn’t one overarching plug-in or hack that will help your website have the “perfect” technical SEO. That said, there are a variety of things you can do that, collectively, can significantly improve your technical SEO and put you ahead of the competition.” ~ Forbes

“Marketers cannot afford to shy away from the challenges of technical SEO—having a site that is crawlable, fast, and secure has never been more essential to ensure your site performs well and ranks well in search engines.” ~ WordStream

Because Google and other search engines continuously update their algorithms and crawl websites, it is recommended that a technical audit is performed at least once a year and immediately following a major algorithm update.

A professional technical audit covers a wide-range of critical analysis checks to ensures your website is crawlable, Googlebots are indexing your webpages against your targeted search terms and how customers are engaging with your website.
