What’s in a Website SEO Analysis

SEO Analysis: Goals

The goal of these reports is to provide a detailed action list and SEO strategy to get your website ranking well in search. It also includes checking for site map, structural, URL, on-page, off-page, and other SEO factors that may be preventing a company’s website from reaching its full search traffic potential. The report will be written in a way that is understandable by technical and non-technical audiences.

Included below is a detailed list of which factors I’ll check for, links to the tools I’ll be using and what types of questions I’ll be answering.
