SEO Audit Pricing & Consulting Rates

So. What does it cost to get a proper, sustainable, SEO audit?

Cartoon about how many things in SEO require a response of 'it depends'

It depends!

That answer is used frequently in true SEO, and too, for audits, because there are so many factors that go into what it takes to deliver a well researched, prioritized audit findings document and accompanying task-based action plan.

Free SEO Audits

I don’t offer free SEO audits. Why? Because a free audit is almost always going to be hit-or-miss. Maybe it covers what’s most important. Maybe not. Maybe it includes custom content to your unique situation and needs. Maybe not. The potential, for a free site audit to provide you with the best actionable tasking, is very low though.

A true audit takes hours of research, evaluation, and testing.

A real audit requires experience. Not necessarily for your specific industry or niche. Yet in actual, advanced SEO understanding. And while experience alone does not guarantee a quality resulting deliverable, with a paid audit, you’re paying for that advanced research, evaluation process and more. You’re also paying for a highly customized, uniquely tailored deliverable for your needs.
