The strongest backlinks and highest quality, most optimized content are only as good as the website they are on.
Your website is central to your marketing efforts, and without a strong foundation it will never stand the test of time.
Our technical SEO audit and fix service is a one-time process to get your site in line with current best practices and ready to perform.
We complete a deep review of your website to identify technical SEO issues, then fix them. But we don’t stop there.
By the time your order is complete, we will audit your website at least 5 times — sometimes 20 or more!
This is our approach to make sure nothing is missed. It’s why we’re so confident we will make your website completely dialed.
Navigating the uncharted waters of technical SEO was full of terms, tasks and actions well beyond our team’s knowledge.
This became a seamless experience thanks to the fast and professional service from Dialed Labs.
Why don’t you just provide a technical SEO audit?
A technical SEO audit from a trusted consultant can cost anywhere from $1,000-$7,000, not including fixes. In fact, our founder used to do these for a living.
These reports are good, but it leaves you with the responsibility of hiring, managing and paying a developer to fix each problem.
What tends to happen, is that some things are fixed, some other things are broken along the way, and some fall in the “too hard basket”.
The irony is, a lot of time is spent in branding and presenting these technical SEO audit reports.
So, instead, we asked the question, “Do you want us to fix your website?“
The answer has been a resounding “yes”. Rather than relaying to you what needs to be done, we get in there do it ourselves. This is in line with one of our core values—to “quietly get on with the work”.
By spending 5 minutes of your time, you can leverage our team’s experience and processes to get your website audited and completely up to date with the latest Google Webmaster guidelines.
In many cases, our SEO audit service, which includes fixes, is cheaper than just the audit report from other vendors and consultants!
How the audit and fix service works.
When you sign up to this service, you can expect the following.
1. Quick & easy sign up
Your time is precious, so we’ll take as little of it as possible. After signing up, you will be asked to fill in a short form.
While completing the form, you will give our team access to your website.
If you have any trouble, our team is here to help. Once we have access, your work is done!
2. We start your initial technical SEO audit
After confirming we can access your site, we’ll start our auditing process for technical and other on-site SEO issues.
During this process we will use tools like Ahrefs, Google Search Console, GTmetrix and Lighthouse to audit your site.
Depending on the size of your site, and if Google Search Console has been set up previously, this can take anywhere between a few hours and a few weeks to run. Once the initial setup is complete, we’ll be able to audit your site in less time for future audits.
3. We begin fixing your site
Once we understand the issues impacting your site, we get to work. Based on our experience in working with many other websites, we know it’s best to tackle the high value, quick fixes first. From there, we work on the bigger problems, one at a time.
We might begin with simpler issues like fixing redirects or broken images, but before long we’ll be working on juicier problems like image compression to improve your site’s speed, or broken CSS.
We’ll work on these issues until they are all fixed. Depending on your site’s health when you sign up, this might take us a few weeks to a few months.
4. SEO auditing continues
The issue with hiring someone to fix a problem is, you want to be sure it’s been fixed properly. While getting it right the first time is a nice idea, every website is difficult, so it’s harder than you might think.
To be sure the fixes we make to your website actually stick, we continue to audit your site until all of the work is complete, and your website’s health is as perfect as possible.
This part of the process really sees us “looping” between steps 3 and 4 for some time.
5. You receive your report
We want to take as little of your time as possible. While that’s our goal, it’s only natural that you want to be sure we’re actually fixing things.
You might even have a boss who you need to report to.
Every time we audit your site, we keep those metrics and bundle it up into a simple report for you to review when our work is complete. This way, you can see how much your website’s technical SEO has improved.
