What Does the Free SEO Audit Report Look?
Here is a video of me explaining part of my process when conducting a Free SEO Analysis report for a potential client. The normal conversation lasts about 30 minutes to 1 hour, but this video is about 5 minutes just to give you an idea.
Above is what a typical free search engine optimization audit report will cover. Since this is a free report, I like to cover the fundamentals along with supplying a few actionable recommendations that I can go over step by step on a call.
What’s in the Free Audit?
The free technical SEO analysis audit has a turn around of 24 hours from when the request comes to my inbox. This report will give a snapshot of what is and is not working for your website. Some of the things that I look for include the following items below.
A brief overview of what SEO and Paid Search Listings are on Google
An organic snapshot of your current natural traffic using a third-party tool
Necessary speed report using a third party tool
Check for any pages that are too large in file size
Robots.txt and Sitemap Check
Check for basic SEO issues and SEO errors
Review of page content in compliance with Google’s duplicate standard
A step by step review on what I found during the analysis
A high-level view of Title Tags, Meta Name Descriptions, and H1 Tags
Why Give Away a Free Option?
The free option is a good idea for both parties for a few reasons. If I see that I can provide value to you and your business, I can create a blueprint strategy on what I can do to help you specifically. If I am not the best for the job, you will still receive a high-quality report that you can use with someone else.
What Tools Do I Use?
The beauty of the search engine optimization report is that there is no cost to you. I have a few SEO audit tools at my deposal to help me perform manual analysis of your site. The main tools that I use include SEMRush, Screaming Frog Crawl Analysis, Google Analytics, Google Search Console, and Bing Webmaster Tools. To give you an idea, I pay about $400 per month for SEO tools to use for Free Audits, so you get this insight for your domain at no cost.
What Happens After You Get the Report?
Once you get the report for the website analysis, you will have the option to have a free call or Skype session with me. There is no cost associated with this, but I won’t provide any more audit work via the call. I will explain every slide to you so that you understand what I looked at. Based on the request, I do offer Boston SEO Consulting if you were looking for search help.
