Course Description

*Updated October 2016*

In this course I am going to walk you through exactly how I go about creating very simple audits for SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

Some of the general benefits of this course will be to teach you how to improve your own website's SEO.

If you running your own marketing agency, you can also use this course to fix your clients websites issues and provide them a very clean SEO audit report. 

I'm going to show you how I use a few different tools to check the health of a website.

Why is all of this important?

Google and other search engines crawl the pages of your site to determine what content is displayed in their index. If data is missing, broken or needs improvement these audits will help you make the improvements needed to see better results in the search engines for your content. 

This course will help you learn about the following metrics on a website:

  • Meta tags that are too long, duplicated or empty
  • Title tags that are too long, duplicated or empty
  • Find broken links and 404 pages that need to be fixed
  • Determine if a site is mobile friendly
  • Check if your website contains an XML sitemap
  • Excessive links on pages
  • Link redirects
  • Determine if your website is mobile friendly

What are the requirements?

  • Some basic knowledge on on-page SEO would be helpful
  • Most of the software mentioned in the course includes free trials but will be limiting

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Learn how to find specific issues with a website in regards to SEO
  • Use SEO Powersuite for audits
  • Use MyWebsiteAuditor for audits
  • Use SEMRush for audits
  • Use Screaming Frog for audits
  • Fix issues on their website for SEO such as broken links and description issues

Who is the target audience?

  • Those who are looking to audit their own website
  • Those who are interested in doing audits for client websites

Section 1: Introduction To The Course

In this video I explain what you should expect from this course. 


SEO Audits are important for finding issues with your website. Fixing problems such as on-page SEO can help increase traffic to your website and provide a better user experience. 

Section 2: SEO Powersuite - Website Auditor

In this video I walk you through the SEO Powersuite Website Auditor. 


I show you how to run the auditor tool and what types of issues you can find with this audit tool. 

Section 3: Screaming Frog SEO Spider, My Website Auditor, SEMRush

In this video I show another useful tool called My Website Auditor which you can use for single keyword audits. 


Screaming Frog is a very technical based tool which provides a ton of insight into a websites metrics. It does not provide much on the reporting side but is great for quickly addressing issues and is very affordable. 


In this video I show you how I use SEMRush for website audits. 

Section 4: Fixing Your Website Once You've Run An Audit

Here is how you can use Yoast SEO for your Wordpress website audits. 


In this video I show you how to bulk edit on-page SEO with Yoast. 


Using this plugin you can quickly fix alt tags for all of your images. 


SEO Enforcer will automatically "trim" your titles and meta descriptions to make them friendly for the search engines. This is a good solution if you want to get a clean audit result from SEO Powersuite's auditor quickly. 

Section 5: Conclusion To The Course

If you are looking to start performing audits for clients you can also check out my course on how to start your own SEO and web design agency. I cover everything in this course you could possibly need to know about bringing in your own clients.
