Yes, you can—but it’s a long and arduous process, from learning what to do to actual implementation. While a routine SEO audit is definitely important, you’d be better off spending more of your time growing your business and hitting your core business goals.

Common SEO Mistakes
You Should Avoid

With the amount of experience Spiralytics Agency has with SEO, you can be sure to avoid the following common mistakes others do in their strategy.

Creating and publishing mediocre content

Highly optimized content is at the core of having a helpful website, solid SEO strategy, and establishing your authority in the digital space. Diagnosing the status of your content is part of what we look at during audits. We don’t write thin content that will add clutter to your site structure and potentially hurt your overall rankings.

Not actively tracking your performance

The practice of measuring your data should be something your company regularly does. If you don’t know what to look for or measure, it will be difficult to manage or develop new tactics that could improve your current performance.

Focusing on the wrong metrics

Reports can generate a million numbers, but if you’re not focused on the right metrics, your data tracking won’t matter so much. Spoiler alert: We’re discussing the most important SEO metrics you should focus on below. Don’t forget to check it out.

Having poor internal link structure

As your website grows in size, you’d probably have gone through several URL edits, content refreshes, and duplicate content. As a result of trying to edit or clean up so much, you could end up messing with previously linked pages. This can lead to broken pages that can confuse readers and have them exit instead of convert.

Using the wrong keywords

Having targeted keywords will fuel your content strategy. This will give you an idea of what your audience is searching for; and if you do a competitor analysis, it could also clue you in on what your competitors are focusing on. In-depth keyword research is the foundation of a good SEO strategy.

Forgetting about local search

Implementing local SEO at the beginning of your efforts is critical. Local search is a massive contributor in organic traffic and increasing sales by targeting those who live within the area of your business. Don’t lose sight of this opportunity.

Talking to a general audience

Always create content with a buyer persona in mind. Keeping your ideal customer in mind as you produce content helps you visualize their pain points better and creates a more relatable dialogue that will hook their interest more. This is part of understanding what it means to market to your target audience as well.

Making SEO audits an afterthought

Most people assume that you should only do an SEO audit once your website has grown a considerable size, or else there will be no mistakes to look for. On the contrary, you can do an audit before you implement your overall SEO strategy so that you can ensure that you have fewer mistakes to check for later on. You’ll save on time and resources in the long run!

Not focusing on user experience

User experience is all about your web visitors. If they find your website difficult to navigate or it’s sporting a poor design, they’ll most likely exit and look for the information they want elsewhere. Always put yourself in the shoes of your consumers as you layout and edit your site.

Forgetting about mobile optimization

In the age of mobile-first, making mobile optimization should also be one of your primary concerns. Major search engines like Google already use mobile-friendliness as a ranking factor for individual pages, so making sure that your site sports a responsive, mobile-friendly design is key to making sure you satisfy this requirement.

SEO Tools For an Audit

Part of conducting a successful audit is having the aid of tools that can get the job done flawlessly.
Below are some of the best tools that professionals use in the industry.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics is used to track many of the performance metrics that matter in SEO, such as organic traffic, engagement metrics, and more.

Google Search Console
  • This web service allows webmasters to measure your site’s search performance and fix issues related to it. You can also check the indexing status of your website and optimize the visibility of your page here.
Google PageSpeed Insights

Google PSI gives you an idea of how fast your pages load both on mobile and desktop. It also suggests optimization tactics so you can improve your page loading performance.

Google’s Structured Data Testing Tool

This tool aims to check the structured data or rich snippets on a webpage, so you can see if it will display correctly on search engine page results.


Ahrefs is a paid tool that gives rich insights to backlinks and referring domains of your website. They have a seven-day free trial for you to experience their full features.


This is a great tool to check for plagiarism and avoid getting penalized by the search engines when you publish duplicate content. It also safeguards you from incorrectly citing content-related intellectual property.

SERP Simulator

This simple simulator helps you visualize what your headlines and meta description will look like on search engines before it goes live. You’ll be able to avoid truncated text that results from long copy—effectively optimizing your efforts.

Web Page Word Counter

Use this to monitor your pages’ word count. If any of your pages have less than 200-300 words, it could be tagged by search engines as having thin content. The longer you write relevant webpage content, the more likely Google will consider your site as an authority on a subject matter.

SEO Metrics
That Matter

Part of understanding how SEO works is looking at the data that specialists find essential.
If you’re not already tracking the following, make sure they’re included in your next data reports.

Organic Traffic

This represents the number of people who visit your site via organic search. The very goal of SEO is to increase organic traffic, so naturally, the higher this number, the better.

Clickthrough Rate

CTRs measure the number of people who click on your site after seeing it on the results page, reflecting how good your SERP copy is. The text should simultaneously be catchy and indicate what your brand can offer

Bounce Rate
  • This reflects the number of people who exit your site after visiting one page—meaning they don’t navigate. The lower your bounce rate, the better. It will give you a snapshot of how engaging your content is, and how well your website is laid out that your visitors find it easy to use.
Keyword Rankings

Keyword research is at the backbone of good SEO tactics. It’s smart to stay on top of how your keyword rankings are changing as your website rankings increase, and adapt your strategies to these changes.

Domain Authority

Another goal of SEO is to increase your website’s domain authority on Google on a scale of 0 to 100. The higher your DA, the higher your site will rank.

Backlinks and
Referring Domains
  • Your backlinks refer to all links pointing to your site, while referring domains represent the number of unique domains that have linked to your site. Growing both will increase your chances of getting recognized as a credible site, therefore, increasing your domain authority and, subsequently, your rankings.
Page Speed

Page load times are also critical in your user’s overall experience when browsing through your site. If your pages are slow to load, this affects your SEO performance by Google’s standards. Both on-site and off-site optimization tactics can solve slow load times.


Your conversion rate supports how well your current SEO strategy is supporting your overall digital marketing and business goals and helps create movement along your sales funnel.

Page Rankings
  • Last but not least, seeing where your website and content rank in your targeted keywords helps you gauge if you’re on the right track SEO-wise.
