What is an SEO Audit?

What is an SEO Score? (And why I don't use them)

An SEO score is an arbitrary measure of how well your website is LIKELY to perform.


There are all kinds of ways to measure an SEO score, and given that there is no standard criteria, I tend to take SEO scores with a grain of salt.


It's important to make sure that your SEO auditor is finding genuine opportunities for you to improve your website rather than creating problems that you can hire them to solve.


Genuine problems include but are not limited to issues such as:

-Page load time -Non-responsiveness (ie something doesn't fit on a mobile screen)

-Meta descriptions are too long

-Lack of words on a given page

-Lack of images or readability on a blog post

-Spelling or grammar errors

-Appreciably similar content


Common advice to take with a grain of salt


-Your homepage wordcount is too low

-Your sentences are "too complex"

-Your images have no alt text (sometimes it's best to leave them blank)

-We found 900 more errors than your other SEO auditor just did
