What is On-Page SEO?

On-page SEO is the practice of optimizing web pages to improve a website’s search engine rankings and earn organic traffic. It is also sometimes called on-site SEO. An important factor in on-page SEO is page speed.

Importance of Page Speed for SEO

Page speed analysis is important for your SEO. It affects your conversion rates, bounce rates, time spent on site, search rankings, user experience, and revenue. It is incredibly important for your overall health of your website. That is why a page speed audit is necessary for any website.

Importance of Page Speed for Visitors

Have you ever encountered a website suffering from technical issues? It’s not a pleasant experience. So, what is a good average page load time? Most visitors will leave a a website if it takes more than three seconds to load. And almost half of consumers expect web pages to load in less than two seconds. Does your website meet that challenge? (Oh, and most also expect a mobile site to load as quickly or more quickly than a regular website.)

How to Check Your Page Speed

If your page speed slowing down your website, turning away users, and reducing conversions? Sometimes, slow speed can be negatively affecting your website and you don’t even know it. A page speed audit is an in-depth analysis of your web page speed to ensure that your site is running quickly enough for search engines and users.

We can also sit down with you to review your audit and answer any questions you might have about the report. A free online internet tool cannot do that.

How Does an On-Page SEO Speed Audit Work?

Here are the steps for how our technical SEO experts will conduct your website speed audit:

Pick Pages to Audit 

We might audit a few important pages or every page on your website. This will affect the price. Typically, we will check a combination of important pages, including your homepage; a hub, article listing, or product category page; and several single blog, service, or product pages.

Technical Audit 

Next, we will run the chosen pages through a variety of speed testing tools. These might include Google PageSpeed Insights, developer tools, and other SEO tools.

HTML Source Code Analysis 

This step is what sets our services apart. Not all issues that slow down your web pages are identified by automated tools. These problems might include duplicate title and header tags, duplicate analysis and third party scripts, multiple jQuery library, and large inline styles and scripts.

Analyze Response Headers 

Our team will analyze the response headers of your web pages and the assets loaded on those pages. We check for problems that might occur on the server, like cache misses, expired headers, keep-alives, and more.

Create a Report and Recommendations

Finally, we will put our audit report together, complete with recommendations for you to take. We will show you specific examples of how you can update your website to make it faster for search engines and your users.

Check Mobile Speed 

How is your website speed on mobile devices? The mobile version of your website also has to have a great site speed. The speed at which mobile pages load also has an effect on your users and your search ranking. Our report will include an audit of how your website loads on mobile.

Review of Your Speed Audit 

One of our SEO specialists will sit down with you to review the report and answer any questions you may have. You an either take the report and update your website on your own, or you can opt to have our team of expert web developers execute the recommendations in the report.
