Audits and Risk Mitigation
Running a website that relies on gaining organic traffic from Google carries risk.
When Google updates its algorithm it can, very often, mean traffic changes to websites, many of which rely on consistent traffic to generate leads. The reasons for these traffic drops aren’t always clear.
With our SEO audits, we will produce a comprehensive assessment of your website and identify where issues may be arising.
We will dedicate time to explain the issues to you, explain the possible fixes and ensure your sites maintains its current organic traffic levels as we implement changes to help your organic performance grow.
We take a holistic view of SEO auditing and have helped multiple sites recover from algorithmic, technical and content-based issues which have limited organic performance.
Frequent website SEO audits are an effective way to mitigate the risk of future traffic drops and gaining when Google makes changes.
