Forensic SEO services are designed to help businesses investigate and resolve potential search engine optimization issues. These services can be used to identify and resolve a wide range of SEO issues, including keyword research, on-page optimization, link building, and even auditing the work of your current SEO agency partner.

Forensic SEO Services

Businesses hire Forensic SEO consultants for a variety of reasons but the most common are to identify major drop offs in organic traffic, keyword rankings or even because the agency they hired has not moved the needle.

I have over a decade of experience in forensic SEO ranging from Google penalty recoveries, solving mysterious traffic declines and most commonly, auditing the SEO agencies that have already been hired by organizations. 

Example, a business has been working with an SEO agency for the last 10 months and are trying to decide if they should renew their contract with that agency partner for the next year. 

What is Forensic SEO?

Forensic SEO is the practice of analyzing a website’s search engine optimization (SEO) in order to identify potential issues or opportunities.

This can be done for a variety of reasons, such as to troubleshoot a problem, to understand why a website is not ranking well, or to determine whether or not a website is following best practices.

There are many different aspects of SEO that can be analyzed, such as keyword usage, link building, and on-page optimization. Forensic SEO is a complex and detailed process, but it can be extremely valuable in understanding how a website can improve its SEO.

Think of Forensic SEO consultant like an SEO detective.
