SEO Audit Service Hertfordshire

Is your website ranking highly in Google's search engine and winning you enquiries, leads or sales?

"A review of your website's search engine optimisation practices will help you find out how you can improve your rankings"

Why is an audit essential to your overall search engine optimisation strategy?

Google provides an excellent resource, How Search Works, that describes how, as the world's largest search engine, they figure out what to show in the results pages that you see when you enter a search query (or "keyword" term).

With over 1.2 billon other websites on the internet, Google have developed their search algorithms to put those website pages, that offer the most relevant and authoritive content, at the top of the results that searchers are looking for (commonly called "SERPs" or "Search Engine Ranking Pages). If they didn't invest as heavily in their search databases worldwide as they did, users would soon go to Microsoft Bing and other search engines instead.

Matt Cutts (Google's ex Head of Search Quality) explains more here:


Therefore, the easier it is for search engines to crawl your website, using software programmes called "spiders" and for users to understand (quickly) what your web pages are about, the higher your web pages will rank. 

How do you make your website fully accessible and understandable to search engines and humans? This is what the practice of Search Engine Optimisation (or "SEO") does and an SEO audit reviews how near or far your website is to this goal. As a Hertfordshire-based company, whether you're based in Hitchin, Letchworth, Baldock, Knebworth, Welwyn, Welwyn Garden City, Stevenage, Hatfield or other surrounding town, we can provide you with an SEO healthcheck to help you understand the current visibility of your website online.

As you would expect, Dimmock Web Marketing provide a search engine optimisation audit that reviews your website's pages for search engine and human understanding. The chances of your website ranking highly in search engines depends largely on five key factors; on-page SEO (such as Meta Title Tags, Descriptions and Headings), off-page "authority" (commonly known as "inbound links"), technical SEO, website architecture and user experience.
