Guiding you through the terminology
What is Forensic SEO?
Forensic SEO is a bit like detective work. It’s the art of gathering data, collecting clues and sifting the patterns in your rankings and traffic. The aim is to uncover any and all possible obstacles to your search engine performance. Our Forensic SEO analysis process is extremely good at finding those obstacles, whether they’re technical, usability or content issues with site, or inbound link, hacking or negative SEO issues from other sources. Our analysis will break down every single aspect of your site, from the most visible level to the deepest pages, to find out exactly what is causing you to lose rankings.
A forensic SEO analysis is the first step to recovering from any issue that’s causing your rankings to tank. This is because in order to get your rankings back on track, the entire recovery process has to start from a clear, comprehensive understanding of your site’s optimisation issues from top to bottom. Once we understand what is holding you back and what needs to be fixed or improved, we can give you a plan to get you on the road to recovery.
What we can do
There are a number of reasons why you may have lost rankings and traffic, whether you’ve noticed them falling gradually over time or you’ve suffered a sudden, dramatic drop. The source could be anything, including malware, hacking, plagiarism, negative SEO, a Google penalty, crawling errors, changes in volume or qualityof the external links pointing to your site, your website structure, or your sites' technical makeup.
