Is your website performing at its best?

In our Site Audit Overview report you’ll see an estimate of your website’s on-page health, pointing out all the issues you should be aware of. From here you can jump into reports analysing your site’s crawl-ability, HTTPS implementation, SEO, performance (page load speeds), and internal linking.

  • Over 80 on-page and technical SEO checks from surface level issues like duplicate content and broken links, to in-depth analysis of AMPs, HTTPS implementation, correct usage of the hreflang attribute, crawlability and indexability
  • We crawl – domain, subdomain or subfolders, with the ability to ability to include/exclude specific pages and audit the desktop or mobile version of a site
  • Errors will be shown in red and are the most severe issues on your site.
  • Warnings will be shown in orange and represent issues of medium severity.
  • Notices are in blue and are considered less severe than errors or warnings. Notices contain information that some people might consider useful for fixing a site, but they don’t impact your overall site health score.

We perform a comprehensive technical SEO audit with reports that go in depth and with suggestions on what and how to fix them.

Our Site Audit has over 80 checks for SEO issues, ranging from surface level issues like duplicate content and broken links to technical issues like HTTPS implementation and the hreflang attribute on an international website. Our website audits have the ability to crawl either the desktop or mobile version of a website and check up to 20,000 pages per project.

Whether you manage a small website or a large one composed of thousands of webpages, detection of issues can be challenging, so our website audit is perfect for any business from a portfolio website, to SMB sites, to enterprise businesses and agencies.

The checks in the Performance report include:
  • Large HTML page size
  • Redirect chains and loops
  • Slow page load speed
  • Uncompressed pages
  • Uncompressed JavaScript and CSS files
  • Uncached JavaScript and CSS files
  • Too large JavaScript and CSS total size
  • Too many JavaScript and CSS files
  • Unminified JavaScript and CSS files
  • Slow average document interactive time

Performance Report

The Performance report will scan the CSS and Javascript resources on the pages of a website for all performance, loading, and site speed-related issues.
You’ll be able to quickly analyse the average HTML load speed of your website’s pages as well as a breakdown by load time (0-0.5s, 0.5-1s, 1-3s, and >3s).

Internal Linking

Similar to external linking, internal links can also help boost the authority of a webpage. For example, if you are linking to a product page from a homepage, that link will be passing along some of the authority of the homepage.
