Did you know that Google makes over 3000 changes to its algorithm each year?
One simple error with SEO on your site can make the difference between ranking on the first page of Google, or not being found at all.
Having a well-optimized site makes it easier for Google to crawl your site; it also improves the user experience and engagement.
With this in mind, it’s incredibly important to ensure that your site is error-free and up to date with Google’s ever-changing algorithm.
Ubersuggest’s SEO Site Audit simplifies the process by doing the work for you. Follow the steps below to run a site audit and make sure your SEO is in tip-top shape!
Running the Site Audit:
- Go to Site Audit page
- Select your project in the left-hand side menu
- If a report is ready for viewing, it will be displayed to you. Otherwise, a fresh website crawl is started to produce an up-to-date report.
Analyzing the results of your site audit
Once your site audit is finished running, you’ll receive an in-depth report that appears as below:
The first part of the report gives you a broad overview of the health of your website. It includes a rundown of:
- Critical errors
Click See All SEO Issues to view a detailed list of all the relevant information gathered for your page.
Click each tab to see errors specific to that category’s SEO issues. We’ve ranked the issues by the Difficulty of repairing the SEO problem, and the SEO impact it would make if you were able to fix it.
If you’d like to export and save a copy of your SEO issues, click the Export to CSV button to download a spreadsheet with the full list.

Once you’ve perused your top SEO issues and are ready to view the rest of your site audit, click Site Audit Overview at the top of the page to return to the main page of your site audit.
The second part of your report is a breakdown of your Site Speed on both mobile and desktop.
Use the orange circular toggle to switch between your Desktop report and your Mobile report.
Now that you’ve run your Site Audit report, it’s time to fix those issues and optimize your site!
Once you’ve fixed the issues, go back to your Site Audit overview and click the Recrawl Website button to recrawl your website and to check to see if the errors are fixed or any new ones have been created.
