“A good SEO audit should delve into all aspects of your website and identify areas for improvement – even if you’ve already got a great site, there’s always opportunities to improve and overtake the competition.”

– Andy Cockayne, SEO Lead at The Brains


The Brains conducts intensive SEO audits that help businesses pinpoint the issues impeding their growth. We include technical, content and backlink profile assessments in all of our audits, taking learnings from your competitors and employing a data-driven SEO strategy to identify low hanging fruit and prioritise improvements to your website. We tailor every SEO website audit to fit our clients’ requirements, and will use your SEO audit to inform an ongoing SEO strategy and set you up for success.

Our SEO audits will help you to:

  • Pinpoint ongoing technical problems and content issues impacting on your SEO performance
  • Identify key opportunities to improve results – both “low hanging fruit” for short term improvements, and longer term projects with significant projected improvements
  • Discover opportunities for link building and outreach, so that you can bolster your backlink profile and improve your website’s authority

How our SEO audit service works

At The Brains, we maintain transparency with all of our clients to let them know how their budget is being used and what results we have found during the course of their audit, so that we can educate our clients in the processes and steps we are taking to improve their site, to enable them to make the relevant changes in the future.

We start off with an Initial workshop with our client to talk about pain points, reason for wanting audit, identification of competitors and content goals, discussion about previous SEO efforts and goals for SEO activity moving forward.

Our Technical SEO, outreach and SEO content experts go to work to thoroughly assess your website from all perspectives, spending a collective week of effort (or more, depending on the size of the site) to gather all data points.Some of the key things we look for when carrying out an SEO audit:

  • Site map structure.
  • Broken pages that need amending or removing.
  • URLs that are blocking google bots from carrying out a crawl.
  • Duplicated pages.
  • Missing paginations.
  • Misuse of H1, H2 or H3.
  • Images without correct alt text.

SEO audit services FAQ

Why do I need an SEO audit?

Just like your car needs an M.O.T once a year, your website needs a regular SEO audit to see if it’s performing to the best of its abilities. An SEO audit looks at how your website is performing technically and where there are concerns with your content and backlink profile, to identify changes that need to be made in order to outrank your competitors, increase your traffic and drive revenue.

SEO audits look for things like page loading speed, mobile friendliness and content quality, to name a few – all of which play a huge role in how Google determines what position to rank your site.

With more and more businesses moving online, and with markets becoming clustered as a result, it’s never been more vital to have regular SEO audits to ensure that your business is being seen by your potential customers.

Why do I need an agency to complete my SEO audit?

Completing a thorough SEO audit of your website requires significant specialist skills in technical optimisation, content analysis and backlink profile auditing. It also requires you to dig deep into your competitors’ websites and understand how to extrapolate findings to inform your strategy. You’ll need to be comfortable using a significant range of tools, from Google Analytics to Google Search Console and leading tools like SEMRush, Screaming Frog and HREFs.

By hiring a professional SEO audit agency, such as The Brains, you’ll have access to the services of an expert team of SEO specialists that have a long history of planning and implementing SEO strategies proven to increase website search engine rankings.
