So just what should an SEO Audit cover and why?
The purpose of the Audit is to see what issues could be stopping a site from getting better rankings on Google. This is not straightforward as there are over 200 ranking signals/checks that affect the rank awarded by Google, these ranging from Technical Issues like site speed, to the words used on the page.
Such research is needed because, just like when you take your car to the garage for a MOT, the first thing that they have to do is to see what is broken / not up to scratch. Only then can they move on to fixing the car.
It is very much the same for websites, the Audit that Serendipity Online Marketing provides being very similar to a MOT test.
Using the same tool (to ensure a good comparison) a major competitor’s domain is checked to see what keywords are working for them. Not only does this show what is working for the competitor, it also gives some very interesting info on a whole range of keywords that the site being checked is not getting rankings for.
There is no hard and fast rule about how many words should be used on a page, but there is no doubt that pages with a low word count do not work as effectively in obtaining rankings, or bringing in traffic for long tail keyword searches.
Google is a lot cleverer than it was in the early days, which means that stuffing a page full of keywords will not work at all today. However, there is still a need to use the right words on a page, but these must be variations / relevant to the target phrase. This check provides very useful data on how well the text meets Google’s requirements.
Put together, this data shows just what ‘problems’ a site has, as well as indicating just how to fix them.
The audit and associated telephone / online consultation are provided totally free of obligation, which means that any website owner can take advantage of this offer without any worries.
