Design Testing

1. SEO Audit – Technical SEO & On-Page SEO (search engine optimisation)

The SEO audit test returned good results for EDP Space with a score of 76%. With a good SEO score the website will organically grow new visitors quickly bringing new visitors to the site.

All designs during and after the site construction are tested with an SEO audit software form Seobility. “Seobility checks the complete website, by crawling all linked pages. All found pages with errors, problems with the on-page optimization or problems regarding the page content like duplicate content are collected and displayed in each check section. Problems of a single page can be analysed in Seobility page browser.”
