SEO Audit

SEO Audit must perform at least twice a year. The reason is quite simple as Google always come up with new changes and keep updating its search algorithm. There are certain elements that plays a crucial role in determining the success or failure of a SEO campaign.

You need to remove all the links or backlinks from your website that are no more active. You also need to ensure that your website is ready for search engine indexing and the search engine robots can crawl through it.

Once your website is ready, give a thorough look over it and check if there is any issue related to user experience such as navigation, loading speed, etc. These are some of the things that you can add to your SEO checklist and implement the same while fixing SEO on your website. However, We have created a comprehensive SEO Checklist, which can be helpful in improving the search visibility of your site.

PPC Audit

Performing a PPC Audit on a website is much easier than the SEO Audit, because it gives you an instantaneous result. You don’t need to wait for the good amount of traffic or leads to be generated as it takes time. Pay Per Click management services delivers results almost instantaneously.
