Our SEO Results Speak for Themselves
Well, this site in the finance niche should give you a pretty good idea:
What Does Our Technical SEO Company Review?
Really, each website is unique and requires its own in-depth analysis. When you hire me as your SEO consultant I will generally review:
Can your page be found by search engines? If Google doesn’t know your webpage exists it’s impossible to turn up in organic search results, let alone rank highly.
Internal Links & Website Architecture
Is your website structured in an organized, logical way (and do all your links work)? Having related content nested together with functioning internal links between such content helps search engines better understand your pages. Let us make sure your pages are categorized in alignment with SEO best practices. Do you have an internal linking strategy? Your SEO consultant, can help you define one. Internal links are important for helping crawlers understand your site’s hierarchy, pass ranking power between your pages, and discover newly added content.
Crawling Issues and Crawl Budget
You want search engines to crawl and index your webpages as efficiently as possible. Large sites with sizable page counts can be too much for a search engine to crawl at one time, leading to misused crawl budgets and adversely impacted SEO performance. A crawl budget is the number of pages that can be indexed within a set period of time. Once your crawl budget has been spent crawlers will move on to other sites. If your pages aren’t being crawled, they aren’t indexed, and therefore can’t appear in search results. Crawl budget, and crawling issues generally, are often discussed, but widely misunderstood SEO concepts. Let our team of technical SEO experts help you determine if crawl budget is relevant to your website and best practices for optimizing it.
Semantic Html and Metadata
Search engines aren’t smart enough to read your pages verbatim. HTML semantics and metadata aren’t user facing, but they are search engine facing and are an integral part of helping search engines effectively understand your content. Did your developer employ SEO friendly semantic markup? Web developers aren’t always aware of the way in which code structure affects search. Small backend mistakes can oftentimes be overlooked when they don’t impact the function of a website, but those insignificant errors can have a negative impact on your SEO performance. This is where a technical consultant can step in to increase search engine visibility and optimize your current SEO strategy.
Are you employing structured data to help search engines easily classify and display your content? We can troubleshoot and improve your current markup. Structured data and rich results are becoming more and more important in SEO and if you want to compete for the top-ranking results positions it’s imperative you’re not ignoring this powerful markup language. Not sure where to start or unsure of your implementation strategy, let us help.
Mobile & Desktop versions of a website
Did you know mobile and desktop SEO are different? Many search engines are moving to mobile-first indexing so it’s important that your mobile pages are built in a search engine friendly way. Mobile-first indexing means that the mobile version of your pages is what is being indexed by search engines even if you have separate mobile and desktop URLs.
Website Speed & Core Web Vitals
Load time and core web vitals are standardized ways of measuring your website’s performance based on real-world user data. A clunky site will hold you back from ranking highly. My team of consultants and I can help you identify, troubleshoot, and correct problem areas.
Lighthouse and Core Web Vitals
Google Lighthouse is an invaluable tool for optimizing your core web vitals. Lighthouse scores are emulated based on a single, controlled test which is the optimum environment for uncovering code problems at the heart of site performance issues. Monitoring, maintaining, and continuously striving to enhance website functionality is key to any effective SEO strategy.
A competitive analysis of search engine results pages for your specific industry and keywords. What are top ranking sites doing that we can learn from? What strategies can we employ to break into the top spots? Any good SEO strategy audit starts here.

As technical SEO experts, we can help you better understand the reports generated by Search Console and use them to enhance your ranking and make strategic decisions about how your content appears on search results pages.
