Get a Private, Actionable SEO Audit of Your Site, On Video

I absolutely love helping people improve their websites, but the truth is, doing these audits all day every day wouldn’t even cover our business expenses. I also only have availability to look at 2-3 sites per day. For that reason, I have a few rules in place to make sure I can provide a ton of value and still enjoy the process.


You’ll make limited changes to pages already attracting significant search traffic.

Unless your website is new and / or doesn’t pick up much search traffic, it’s better to play things safe by making limited changes to pages which are currently ranking well. I can’t make this call for you because I don’t have access to your first-party analytics.


Your website must be at least partially written in English.

I have nothing against websites written in other languages; it’s just 10x harder (and sometimes impossible) to find pages that shouldn’t exist and be crawled or situations where you’ve made obvious on-site errors.


Your website doesn’t cover adult, gambling or illegal content.

Due to where our business is registered, there are specific topics that are off-limits and to be honest, I would rather not cover. No judgement from me – you do you – but you’ll have to get help from another SEO.


The audit is just for us and your close team. Not the world.

I talk personally and to the point in these audits, and sometimes use custom tools to give better insights. I would prefer that these were not shared outside of ourselves and your close team. I can’t control what you do, but we’re both adults, and this is my request.


You’ll only order one audit per site.

I do these audits because I enjoy doing them and love looking at lots of sites in interesting niches. If I were just doing these for money then I would let you stack as many as you want, but that isn’t the case. Please only order one audit per site within a six-month period.

Not for you? Absolutely no problem. Thanks for stopping by!

500 Audits. 100% of Funds to a Dog Shelter. Or, Why These Rules Exist.

Let’s get personal for a second.

Her name was Muffin, a stray dog I found wandering outside with cuts on her face, needing serious care. I bought a cage, put her in my car, and drove to a nearby dog shelter. That shelter took care of her for weeks without asking for anything in return, before rehoming her from the streets of Asia to a new loving home in Canada.

I was overwhelmed by what they had done for her, and I wanted to raise both awareness of what they were doing and funds to further their mission.

That’s when I had the idea: I’ll audit your site for a small fee, on video, and give you private insights on what to change. Oh, and all proceeds will go to that dog shelter.

The offer blew up, and for the next few weeks I did nothing but spend all day reviewing websites and offering feedback.

Around a year later I would do it again, resulting in over 500 sites I had given private advice on with incredible feedback.

It turns out that while I wasn’t making any money, I still absolutely loved doing these audits. Giving people one-on-one feedback on where they were going wrong and how to take their websites to the next level.

The dog shelter no longer exists in its original form, but I have some plans to support special charities in the very near future.

As I write this in January of 2024, I’ve recorded dozens of these each week and the feedback has been incredible.

All of these emails were received in during the most recent opening

This brings us to today, where I still really enjoy recording these audits and find a lot of insights to share, but I don’t have the availability I had back then.

We have large client projects. A full-fledged training program called SEO Blueprint. I can spend weeks writing individual reports here on Detailed. We regularly update the (free) Detailed SEO Extension for Chrome & Firefox, which recently surpassed 200,000 active weekly users, plus two other extensions you’ll see me use when I look at your site.

And finally, we also have other sites and projects outside of Detailed.

You could say that for an intentionally small team, we’re pretty busy.

This is a long way of saying that I would love to look at your site and offer feedback, but I can only look at a couple of sites each day, and I would like the above rules to be respected.

They allow me to enjoy what I’m doing much more, and I don’t have to refund people who order reviews for non-English sites who missed the FAQ’s on the next page.

Thanks for understanding!

Not for you? Absolutely no problem. Thanks for stopping by!
