You can either conduct the audit yourself or hire a digital marketing company to run one on your behalf using their specialised content auditing tools. This will allow you (or your digital marketing agency) to pinpoint how to improve the information you currently have on your website. Areas of focus include evaluating the website’s overall performance, identifying broken links (highly damaging to SEO), and looking for opportunities to increase the website’s accessibility to customers.
Poor website performance could be attributed to a number of online content errors. A website audit will identify issues with web copy including problems with title tags, missing information and duplicate content. In addition, the digital media including video content and images will be assessed for optimal resolution.
Whilst new and original content is great for SEO and domain authority, it isn’t always necessary. A quick fix for websites with inactive content could be to repurpose contributed articles, blog posts and additional marketing materials to generate content on a specific marketing objective. For example, if you work in the Perth property industry and have released statistics on market rates and demographics, there is the opportunity to repurpose this content into a blog post on current market trends.
A content audit will help you evaluate your existing content t by assessing its quality (rated low to high), and the overall content density featured on your business’ website (short/lengthy, light/rich). There is no overarching rule when it comes to content length; however, in order for best results with SEO, you should always ensure website content is of a high quality and relevant to your audience. A website content audit will also highlight structural problems with your web copy that could be impacting statistics such as your bounce rate. As well as analysing how users are finding your website and the search queries they are using, the audit will also assess overall user experience and engagement.
