How Do We Deliver Technical SEO Optimisation Services?
We begin by performing a full SEO audit known as a diagnostic crawl. This involves using complex software which mimics the ‘spiders’ used by the search engines to crawl a website and ‘index’ (list) its content.
The faster the spiders can crawl your site and the easier it is for them to find their way around, the better found in search results your site will become. If the pages take a long time to load, provide a poor experience on mobile or are difficult to navigate, the spiders’ progress is hindered. If they arrive at a page that seems to have been removed, they’ll stop in their tracks. If our fussy arachnids encounter duplicate content across multiple pages, they roll their beady little eyes in disdain and refuse to rank any of them particularly well.
Once we have a full, ordered diagnostic list, we use this to fix all issues in order of priority until the spiders can scuttle through your site with super speed. This improves your chances of ranking for relevant keywords and phrases whilst ensuring the best possible experience for visitors.
Factors for technical optimisation
When the crawl has been undertaken, there are a number of factors that could potentially present issues, including:
- Page speed
- Responsiveness and mobile experience
- Duplicate content and canonical tags
- Thin content
- Core Web Vitals
- Redirects and broken pages
- Website navigation
Check out our comprehensive guide to the Google page experience to learn more about how these factors can impact your website.
