What to Expect from Your Website Audit – Taking a Look at the Overview Page
On the first page of your website audit you will see an website overview of each area that needs work, be it warnings, notices or spelling mistakes. The screenshot below shows notices. You can see there are different search engine ranking factors included in this area like anchor text headings, meta data, robots, redirects, URL restrictions, URL formatting and canonical links.
Website Audit Performance Results – Taking a Look at Each URL that Has Errors and Filtering by Error
When you click on any one of the search engine ranking factor boxes you will see all of your wesite audit results. All of the URLs that need improvement will be displayed. You can filter these URLs by errors, warnings, notices and misspellings or a specific ranking factor in those areas like anchor links, meta data, server timeouts, etc.
Inspecting a Specific URL – Taking a Closer Look at Which Search Engine Ranking Factors or Ranking Signals Failed
The next step is to take a look at each URL, one by one, to see what search engine ranking signals failed, as set out by Google, Yahoo and Bing. Each search engine will have different ranking factors, so it is important that each URL is audited as per the specific requirements for each search engine.
Understanding the Website Audit – How to Correct Errors, Warnings and Notices
Now comes the fun part, understanding the website audit. Looking at the image above, let’s take a look at the broken link. We can see that the audit provides us with the analyzed page, and then shows us what the broken link is. In this case, the page is website optimization and the broken link is a blog post about the overoptimization penalty.
Fixing Errors, Notices and Warnings as Per the Website Analysis Report
Once the error has been determined, we then need to fix errors as per the website analysis report. Staying with the example above, the error was a broken link. We now need to determine how this error was caused, so we will know how to fix it. There are a number of reasons why links get broken, but in this case the URL was updated without a 301 redirect put in place. Once the redirect is done, this error will be fixed.
