Geo-targeting is the process of delivering region-appropriate content based on a user's location. Your website's domain plays an important role in geo-targeting as it indicates to search engines where your intended geo-target is.
Making a serious change to your website's URL and localisation structure, such as changing domains, could affect your geo-targeting efforts so it is important to assess any possible impact before implementing any changes.
An SEO strategist will predict how your website traffic is likely to be affected by your proposed changes and will also evaluate how your current geo-targeting strategies are likely to affect your domain change.
The geo-targeting and domain recommendations will be sent to you in a PDF format, as well as an Excel file containing appendices.
The process begins by completing a briefing questionnaire to clarify your objectives. This briefing will be visible to all the team members involved with delivering the audit and is the foundation for all our quality checks.
An SEO strategist will estimate the percentage gain or loss your traffic is likely to take in your geo-targeted region in the first three months if you change your domain. They will also look at your entire geo-targeting strategy, evaluating your current status in terms of backlinks, geo-targeting settings, languages, sitemaps, and on-page coding factors, and will outline how these factors may or may not affect your domain changes.
This audit will be reviewed by a second SEO specialist and then delivered to you in a PDF and Excel file.
