In short it's always beneficial to understand who your competition are and what they are doing, helping you to stay up to date and in competition. Technical Audit Sometimes websites can't be read and understood by Search Engines, this is obviously a bad thing as it will prevent them from appearing in search results. There are other issues that also need to be addressed such as duplicate pages. A technical review is vital to make sure a website isn't tripping itself up. Keyword Research Keyword research helps us to understand what people who would buy your products and services search for. There are tools that help us with this and we don't have to simply guess and hope.
