The SEO Audit, Part III

The final part of our basic SEO audit looks primarily at how Google sees your site. Remember that we’re using tools that that are free and don’t require getting under the hood (by looking at GA for instance).

In particular, look for the highlighted message. It should just confirm what you know about how mobile-friendly your site is, as well as offering tips on how to improve the user experience.

One final check is really the most obvious. But do a search in Google for your website. Better still, do a “site:yourdomainname.com”.
