Website Health Check – this is a great comprehensive audit of your current website delivered in a pdf report format. If you need any help interpreting the results please ask.
Google Site Speed Test – this is not a purely technical speed test but rather how Google sees your website on both mobile and desktop for search results. The results are delivered in traffic light fashion, red, orange, or green.
Keyword and Competitor Review – we subscribe to SemRush which is a great keyword and competitor analysis tool. For individual websites you can learn a lot from playing with their free reports. For example if you want to know what keywords your most successful online competitor is using simply type in their URL.
Or simply type in a keyword and have it analysed including monthly volume, it will also display similar keywords. (Tip: please make sure you use the AU database for Australia).
Tech Fine Print – Ignore if you like - How Semrush works is that they have a huge crawled database that records thousands and thousands of keywords and the website rankings for those keywords. This huge database then allows them to INFER individual site traffic based on the keywords used and that keyword ranking for the website. In round numbers it’s maybe 80% accurate in relation to traffic, but it’s still an extremely powerful tool.
Mobile Friendly – if you’re not sure whether your site meets Googles mobile friendly benchmark this tool will tell you yes or no.
Wordpress Plug in’s – can’t remember what plug in’s you have on your Wordpress site, or want to have a sneak look at your competitors Wordpress site, this simple site checker from Earthpeople in Sweden checks a site for the top 50 Wordpress plugins.
Technical Overload – if you want a comprehensive technical footprint of a website, simply type in a URL at Builtwith.com. We carry a paid subscription to this service, if any of the information you are after is blocked let us know and we’ll source it for you.
