*Average results generated for our clients

“We’ve been successfully providing SEO services in Chicago since 2006. We learned the importance of due diligence when taking on a new project. That’s why we’re very selective and never take on a new project unless we can verify, with hard data, how we will deliver results. Our clients love it, because they know that if we’re taking them on, we WILL deliver desired results.”

Search Engine Optimization Audit Services

Considered a digital health check for your website, our technical SEO audits check backend elements like page speed, index status, broken links, duplicate content, and crawlability. This helps us understand how Google’s search engine spiders index your website, as well as how individual page elements affect crawl space and user experience.


Website Structure

Your website’s structure tells Google which pages are most important. Having a clear, logical and organized site map helps search engines find and index your content quickly. Our SEO audit ensures your website adheres to clear and simple naming conventions and reflects a clear hierarchy for optimized crawling and indexing.

Keyword Research & Optimization

SEO Keyword

Keywords are the backbone of on-page SEO, so it’s essential you understand which ones your target audience use. Our SEO keyword audit assesses whether your existing keywords are doing well for their original optimization, and if not, we’ll know how to improve them for better engagement.

Content SEO

Content SEO

We provide insight into what content to create, update, re-write or delete. Our comprehensive content audit reveals areas on your website that aren’t properly optimized for search engine results, assists with content development workflow, and aligns your content plan to your current marketing goals.

On-page elements like header tags, image ALT tags, and the length of page titles and URLs are crucial to SEO success. Healthy on-page SEO makes it easier for search crawlers to identify whether your web pages are relevant to a searcher’s query. So, if something’s missing, or needs to be optimized, we’ll immediately be able to pick it up.


Link Building Strategy

Our SEO auditing process assesses the quality of links to your website from other domains, with the aim to eradicate bad ones that hinder performance. Search engines like Google use backlinks to determine rank, so it is essential your links are high quality.

Mobile Friendly Optimization

Mobile-Friendly Performance

It’s important your website is mobile-friendly for search engine crawlers because Google predominantly uses the mobile version of website content for indexing and ranking. Our mobile SEO audits will assess your website’s load-time speed, user-friendliness and responsive design to determine if it’s fully optimized for multiple devices.


Organic Traffic

Organic traffic is a good indicator of how popular your website is. It measures the relevance and quality of its content, helping us gauge how your other SEO efforts are performing. The more people who find your website without paid ads, the better. Because organic traffic drives a higher ROI, our experts determine where and how to boost it.

A local SEO audit provides peace of mind you’re maximizing all avenues, tools, and tactics to boost your local pack visibility. We’ll review your Google My Business profile, listings on business and industry directories, as well as online reviews, to diagnose any symptoms that prevent your website from attracting quality traffic from targeted areas on search engine rankings.

We measure how you leverage digital marketing resources against industry standards. This includes your email marketing, paid advertising, website design, and user experience, as well as brand congruence and messaging efforts, to find out if they’re providing a competitive edge in search engine result pages.

Voice Search Optimization

Voice Search SEO

Keyword construction has changed because people are using more conversational phrases when interacting with digital assistants. We’ll analyze how to make your website more efficient for consumers who use voice programs to look for goods and services on search engines.

eCommerce SEO audits review specific online shopping tactics like category and product pages, internal product linking, and rich snippets to spot missed optimization opportunities. Our SEO audits flag canonical tags, internal links, and metadata that can be better utilized to improve brand awareness, store ranking, and conversion rates.

Every business needs a strong social media presence. Social media affects your website’s SEO efforts in terms of links and exposure. Through an SEO audit process, we can check whether you have a proper presence on the most important social channels and how easy it is for potential customers to find you there.

Complimentary SEO Audit

Our SEO experts will analyze your website's SEO and provide a comprehensive report with issues, opportunities and tips for improvement.

How Our SEO Audit Services Work

Our SEO audit services

Our data-driven SEO audits provide a thorough evaluation of your website’s on-page, off-page, technical and local SEO status. The results offer a 360-view of where your website is right now and where it can improve its ability to rank in organic search.

Once we’ve performed a free 20-point performance audit, you’ll know which foundational SEO errors are affecting your search engine results and can opt to have an in-depth audit that pinpoints specific weaknesses within flagged areas.

Our comprehensive SEO audit services cover:

  • On-page SEO (keyword relevance)
  • Off-page SEO (link building strategy)
  • Technical SEO
  • Local SEO
  • Content marketing
  • Past SEO agency performance

Our SEO specialists look at page specific-elements like title tags, headings, content, reviews and internal links with keywords, as well as technical issues like hosting, site speed, XML sitemaps, and robot.txt file optimizations.

As part of your SEO site audit, you’ll receive a comprehensive SEO audit report and road map to develop an SEO strategy that improves your website’s search position and attracts organic traffic.

SEO Audit vs Competitive Analysis

An SEO audit is a full analysis of all the factors that impact a website’s visibility in search engines, whereas a competitive analysis is a strategy to identify competitors’ strengths and weaknesses in relation to your business.

Competitive analysis helps you learn how your competitors work and identify potential opportunities where you can out-perform them. It alerts you to industry trends and ensures you are meeting, and exceeding, industry standards.

Although SEO audits and competitive analyzes are inherently different, we do conduct competitive analyses during the SEO audit process to check link building campaigns and keyword rankings. This ensures the implementation of stronger SEO strategies that help businesses capture their share of the market.

How Long Do SEO Audit Services Take?

SEO audit services components

A full-scale SEO audit service can take anywhere from two to six weeks, depending on the scale of your website. During this time, our specialists analyze your entire SEO strategy to uncover search engine optimization opportunities that will enhance your website’s performance.

From relevant keywords to link quality and meta tags, our website SEO audit services include the following:

  • On-page SEO audit: Looking at your keyword rankings, and whether you’re optimizing for the right ones in search engines.
  • Off-page SEO audit: Examining your backlink profile to see which domains link to your website the most, as well as which pages earn the most links.
  • Technical SEO audit: Assessing your website’s crawlability, URL structure, the number of redirects, blocked pages, and other technical characteristics that affect search engine crawl bots from finding your website.
  • Local SEO audit: Determining the condition of your page in local search rankings and ways to further enhance local listings for improved conversions and revenue.

An SEO audit is a process of analyzing your website’s online presence to identify as many issues influencing organic search performance. It is the first step toward creating an SEO strategy with measurable results and favorable organic search rankings; however, it’s not a replacement for ongoing SEO services.

SEO is a long-term marketing strategy that delivers excellent results. Realistically, once we’ve completed a comprehensive audit and devised a robust SEO plan, it’ll take between three and four months for your customized SEO strategies to start working.

This is why so many successful businesses hire professional digital marketing agencies like us to implement, monitor and update their customized SEO strategies designed to maximize online visibility in search results.
