10 minutes isn’t a great deal of time to cover the topic of site audits; but it’s definitely enough time to start looking into a website and gathering the all important 1,000 foot view on what issues might be impacting performance in organic search.
There’s certainly a lot to be gained from loading up a site in your browser and having a good old fashioned dig around. I’ve found that this approach is a great way to familiarise myself with a new client and figure out exactly what I’m going to be dealing with; of course with the opportunity to dive into a full site audit further down the line if required.
I decided to focus my ten minute presentation on this approach and talk about a few of the ways I’ll look around a site for that first initial glance.
A huge thank you to Search London for having me!
