Forum › White Hat SEO › When someone comes to you for help with their website, what are your first steps in figuring out what the pressing issues are?
I work at a company where I deal with a single website all the time. Basically, if I ever wanted to branch out and work for myself, I’m trying to brainstorm how I would start off with a new client. Any comments are appreciated, thanks!
Ask questions.. let them tell you what they think is the problem?
Start with the obvious: indexing, crawl errors, site performance, etc. A tool like screamingfrog can be very helpful for a technical analysis.
