Technical SEO is one of the most underrated & effective measures to gain a critical ranking boost when you have a large website.

Most startups & high growth websites who are not using SEO as their main source of traffic (in most cases) have not optimized there website for SEO as they had no real need too, however, after time this becomes an essential source of traffic, especially if you have gained solid traction in terms of traffic & brand searches in your niche.

Many major market leading websites can contain very simple but detrimental aspects (speaking strictly related to SEO) on their website. Such things include:

  • Pages which have no H1 Tags or multiple H1 tags
  • Uncompressed Images
  • Incorrect Website, Organisation & Product Schema
  • Under & Over optimisation of the title tag

 When completing an SEO audit of a website there are many overlooked aspects to check, these include:

  • The Robots.txt file (correct directing of sitemap & allowing the pages to be indexed)
  • XML sitemaps (prioritising page crawls)
  • Checking rel=”canonical” for correct redirection
  • Checking the internal linking structure of pages ensuring links are followed & not broken or lead to a 404 error page.

A proper technical analysis should always include elements which cannot be found on a automatic seo audit which can be found for free online. These reports are usually very thin in terms of the content & skip over some essential basic elements which can only be done via a manual audit of the website (e.g. some images not being able to be compressed or render blocking javascript being needed for website functionality).
