How our SEO audit services work
Our website SEO audit services begin with an overall analysis of your website (and your website analytics) to assess what action is needed to best optimize it for search engines.
Based on this analysis, WebFX offers recommendations for improving your website to boost your overall search engine rankings.
These recommendations may include, but are not limited to:
- Duplicate content
- Broken links
- Dangling links
- Similar title tags
- Duplicate meta descriptions
- Web copy editing
- HTML validation
- Browser and resolution compatibility
- Page loading times
- Site statistics
- Error pages
All of this is included in both our off- and on-page SEO audit.
The factors listed above are just some of many elements WebFX will address as a part of your SEO audit package. Each of these factors provides some impact in attracting search engine crawlers and — by extension — customers to your site.
Our full SEO audit will show us exactly where you can improve to start ranking better in search engines.
How long do SEO audit services take?
The SEO audit project duration is approximately one month.
Our full SEO audit service takes 30 days for the basic plan and 45 days for the market leader option. During this time, WebFX will thoroughly analyze and assess your website with our SEO audit services to determine the best strategy for you moving forward and provide advice on what to change so that your site performs better in organic search rankings.
Afterward, we’ll show you our SEO audit report, so you can see areas of potential improvement in detail.
Why invest in an SEO audit package?
We’ve designed our SEO site audit services for clients who have trouble ranking for target keywords, but aren’t sure why. Maybe you suspect that your site is too slow, but you can’t confirm it. Maybe you think there’s a problem with content duplication, but don’t have the tools available to check. That’s where we come in.
WebFX’s SEO auditing plans include investigating all possible factors, from essential on-page elements like title tags to comprehensive sitemaps. We’ll examine your site and determine exactly where your marketing strategy can improve — and how you can improve it.
We recommend SEO audits for anyone who has trouble ranking and needs solid, actionable advice on what to do next. An SEO audit package can also help businesses that recently started a website and want to know how they can improve on their earliest pages.
Regardless of your need, SEO audits are the first steps to creating an online marketing strategy that works.
At WebFX, our agency specializes in several critical areas of SEO, from traditional to local to ecommerce. That makes it easy for our team (and yours) to assess your SEO strategy and discover opportunities.

SEO audits: The on-page factors affecting your SEO
What’s the point in having an attractive website if no one ever sees it? We’ve seen a lot of clients who have beautiful, engaging, and well-crafted websites that just can’t rank in search engines, and they don’t understand why. Why doesn’t a website rank well if it’s attractive and has a lot to offer?
Frequently, the issue in these situations is content in one form or another.
This could mean not enough content on each page (“thin content”), similar or missing title tags and meta descriptions, or multiple URLs pointing to the same page (“duplicate content”).
WebFX will identify these on-page ranking barriers and recommend the necessary changes with our SEO auditing services. Identifying and fixing these on-page factors can have a significant, immediate and positive impact on your rankings.
SEO audits: The off-page factors affecting your SEO
Other factors affecting your organic search positions are what are referred to as off-page factors. Off-page factors make up almost 80% of search engines’ ranking algorithms, making accurate off-page analysis absolutely critical. These factors are mostly focused on links — the number of links you have, the anchor text used, and where these links are placed.
The average web visitor can’t spot these off-page factors, and it’s difficult to identify them manually. Fortunately, at WebFX, we have a suite of services enabling off-page analysis and comparison. WebFX will identify these hard-to-spot factors and recommend a strategy that helps you build your reputation and increase your presence online.
SEO audits: The server files affecting your SEO
There are several files on your server — like .htaccess, robots.txt and sitemap.xml to name a few — that dictate how search engines access and index your content. Optimizing these files, so they are configured appropriately, can have a huge impact on your rankings.
The .htaccess file is a distributed configuration file. This file allows you to specify and apply configuration directives on your site. This file enables you to call the shots on how users and search engines are directed to specific pages on your site, facilitate custom error pages and apply 301 redirects.
The robots.txt file placed in the root of a website prevents web spiders from accessing specific folders on your website. It is important to follow a specific format when optimizing this file. This file is typically used for folders that dilute the theme of your website or folders providing a dead end to robots, such as PDF files.
The creation, optimization and submission of a sitemap.xml file enables search engine spiders to better crawl your site. It also helps visitors to quickly scan your whole site for relevant information. This file provides a link and a short description of that link for each page of your site, prioritizing each page and providing a hierarchy of the most significant pages on your site to the least important pages on your site.
Additional Server Configuration Factors
Additional server configurations such as accurate HTTP headers, accurate 404 error pages and page load times affect your search engine traffic as well. WebFX will identify and determine the best way for you to optimize these files to ensure positive results.
