How To Perform A SEO Audit – FREE $5000 Template Included

How To Perform A SEO Audit – FREE $5000 Template Included | Digital Technologies for businesses | Scoop.it

Over the years, the one thing that I’ve always noticed is that most sites aren’t optimized for search engines. 


Due to this, I decided that it would be fun to have my buddy Sam McRoberts from Vudu Marketing audit Quick Sprout. With Sam’s approval, I decided to:

  1. Break down how he did the audit step by step, so you can replicate it…
  2. Have my designer stylize his audit and create a template so that you can easily copy the whole audit for your website.
