In this post, comprehensive SEO Audit Checklist, I’m offering you a chance to subscribe to my blog and get my free SEO Audit Checklist. (see the sample screenshots at the bottom of the post). If you’ve been following my blog you’ll know that one of the things that I like to do is to provide tips and suggestions on how to improve your Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
PinArtwork’s SEO Audit Checklist
One of the best ways to improve your SEO is by regularly doing an SEO Audit (preferably at least once a month or so). In the past, I’ve done an SEO audit by looking at 14 SEO programs. Many of which don’t provide too much help. Since then I’ve been able to isolate the SEO audit to principally using four “beneficial” SEO programs:
- 1. Rank Math
- 2. SEOptimer
- 3. SEO Site Checkup and
- 4. Page Speed Insights
In the SEO Audit Checklist that I’ve created from looking at Rank Math, SEOptimer, SEO Site Checkup, Page Speed Insights, and Yoast SEO I’ve broken down 8 categories that you can use to optimize your posts (when you’re doing your audit). Most SEO programs provide the things that you need to do; however, they don’t provide you with the means to track your overall progress. Because the best way to improve your SEO is to use Holistic SEO that you look at the entire big picture of your SEO as a whole.
Holistic SEO – Does your blog need more traffic? Focus on using a Holistic SEO Approach – “If you’re wanting to get a better handle on your website’s SEO and improve its traffic one of the best . . . “
A Holistic SEO is looking at the overall big picture with the primary goal of building and maintaining the best website. What will come along naturally if your website has extremely high quality is a better ranking.Unknown
This is the advantage of my SEO Audit Checklist. With it and by utilizing the four reference SEO programs above, when you do your SEO audit and run your SEO audit checklist you’ll now have a mechanism for you to track exactly the things that you should be doing to fix your overall website’s SEO.
What you’ll actually get when you subscribe is my future posts and your free gift is a copy of my own SEO Audit Checklist which you can then modify the parameters for the items that need your attention. For anything that needs to be fixed, you simply put FALSE in the first column. For all of the other items, ensure that they are set to TRUE. The predicted overall SEO Score is factored by looking at all of the issues that need your attention.
For example, on my website, I have 11 issues that I need to fix out of a possible 74 items. So the % of items to fix is 14.86%. Therefore, I took that number away from 100 to determine your “approximate” SEO Score. In my case it’s an 85.14%.
|SEO Audit Checklist||Task Progression based on “FALSE” in Done|
|“TRUE” no problem items||63||% of issues|
|“FALSE” (to fix) issues||11||14.86|
|Issues to Fix (“FALSE”)|
|Google Core Web Vitals||3|
The six pins below from my post called 14 programs to run an SEO Audit had the following SEO scores:
I’ve combined the SEO Scores which add up to 449 and divided them into six programs reflecting an average “predicted” overall SEO score of 75%. Therefore, I think that my predicted 85.14 (from my SEO Audit checklist) is a pretty good indicator of your overall “true” SEO if you take all of the factors into consideration that need to get addressed to fix your SEO.
Below are some sample screenshots from the SEO Audit Checklist in order for you to see what you’ll be getting. I hope that you like this checklist and that you’ll be able to benefit from it, optimize your blog posts, and improve your website’s SEO.
