Celebrity Website SEO Audit

Celebrity Website Audit Yesterday I was following (“participating” would be too much for someone who doesn’t say a word, right?) the Celebrity Website SEO Audit, a Google Hangout organized by Dejan SEO.

I don’t know if it was the spam attack to Spamhaus, a too slow internet connection here in Malta or just that sometimes I’m not very patient, but after about 10/15 minutes I decided to give up trying to follow the SEO audit.

However, in the few minutes I followed, I could get a bit of what I was actually trying to get, which is, basically, how other SEOs would conduct a quick SEO audit, what they would look for first, and so. Because it’s always good to compare your way to do things with others.

And what I could see is that there are not big differences. I didn’t expect to find them, but you never know.

However, to apologize with Dan and all the others, I would like to point out 3 issues I found on LadyGaga.com, the first website audited yesterday. I apologize again if any of these issues has been already pointed out yesterday, but again I had 5 minutes of connection problems, and then quit, so I might have missed it.

  • The first issue I saw is the link on the logo, which links to /Default.aspx instead of /. There’s not even a rel=”canonical” saying search engines / and Default.aspx are the same. Yes, I know: if you search for the Default.aspx page, you don’t find it on Google, so one might ask why bother?  Mmm
  • Performance can be improved, just by adding a max-age or expires headers to a lot of static content or by combining CSS and javascript files.
  • All the events could use Event Schema

These are my 2 cents. Hopefully, next time I will be able to properly participate, also because SEO audits are something I really like to do.
