Technical SEO Services
Technical SEO services focused on generating a strong ROI.
While technical SEO is one of the most key components of an effective SEO strategy and a high-performing website, many websites are still not built to be SEO-friendly or compliant for search engines. Technical SEO goes hand in hand with other pillars of SEO; content marketing and link building (such as digital PR). However, without focusing on ensuring your website is crawlable first, your other efforts won’t reap the benefits.
The SEO Works offer expert technical SEO services that focus on achieving your goals by prioritising issues, and making sure you get the most out of your investment. All our recommendations and advice put results at the forefront.
What is technical SEO?
Technical SEO ensures a website functions in line with Google’s algorithm requirements and recommendations. This service encompasses all the core elements that allow Google bots to crawl, render, index and subsequently rank a website.
Why is it Important?
If bots can’t crawl your website to understand what you have to offer, it is impossible for them to then decipher where your website should be ranking in the search results.
Prioritising technical SEO is essential to ensure your website has a strong performing foundation. Without it, you can end up investing in other areas of your website and SEO with little to no results long term. It’s like building a house on uneven ground.

Technical SEO Considerations:
Site speed optimisation
Poor website speed can be detrimental to a website's performance in search visibility and user experience. Our team can review your site speed with the context of your functionality in mind, and offer valuable recommendations and potential implementations.
Core Web Vitals
Core Web Vitals are important metrics, and are now a direct ranking factor used by Google to identify how your website performs. This considers metrics such as speed, interactivity, and responsiveness. Our technical SEO agency has extensive experience in understanding any Core Web Vitals issues, and suggesting possible solutions to improve your scores over time.
Mobile performance optimisation
Around 63% of all searches are done on mobile devices. So, if your website isn’t responsive or optimised for mobile, you won’t be offering a positive user experience. As a technical SEO agency, we have been helping clients to ensure their website offers just as intuitive and efficient of an experience on mobile, as on desktop, to maximise your visibility and conversions.
Google penalty recovery
With new algorithm updates some sites may see penalties enforced by Google, meaning if your website isn’t in good technical condition your visibility could suffer. Our technical SEO team can help those who have lost visibility due to a Google Penalty.
Information and website architecture
Good website architecture is key to getting your website crawled and indexed effectively by search engines. There’s nothing worse than struggling to navigate a website due to an incohesive or confusing structure. Our technical experts can identify flaws in your website architecture and provide recommendations for a clear URL structure to ensure your pages are as accessible as possible.

We offer pre, during and post-migration strategies, support and monitoring checks to ensure your website performs optimally throughout the process and minimise the effects on your visibility in search engines.

Is technical SEO part of off-page SEO?
No. Technical SEO and off-page SEO are two separate parts of a campaign. Off-page SEO refers to activities that happen off of your website. This includes practices like link-building and reviews. Prioritising off-page SEO can help build your website’s experience, expertise, authority and trustworthiness (E-E-A-T). Whereas technical SEO ensures your website can be read and understood by crawlers, and performs well for users.
How Can I Find Technical SEO Errors?
There are a variety of tools, platforms, manual website checks and specialist knowledge that goes into diagnosing technical SEO issues. A good starting point is to review errors in your Google Search Console (which is a free tool from Google), as this can identify issues with indexability, Core Web Vitals and more. However, good technical SEO would go beyond this to review additional opportunities and apply expert knowledge of your site and Google’s best practices to determine what is a true issue on the site, and the best fix for this.
