WordPress Site Audit

If your WordPress site is not up to scratch, you could be leaving revenue on the table.

Maximise your website's overall performance with my technical site audit.

Does this sound familiar?

  • You want to speed up your WordPress site and make it faster as it takes too long to load.
  • You'd like to know how to improve your WordPress site's on-site SEO.
  • You have had issues with the security of your website.
  • The admin area of your WordPress site is difficult to use.
  • You have what feels like an excessive amount of plugins installed and you don't even know what some do.
  • The mobile experience of your site is putting customers off.
  • The codebase for your custom theme or plugin is proving difficult to manage.
  • Shipping new features is painful for your team.

If so, your WordPress solution can be better and I'll show you how to improve it.

How it works

  1. Place your order using the form below.
  2. I'll send you a detailed questionnaire focused on me getting to know your business and your WordPress struggles.
  3. You'll send me the relevant access I need to properly audit your website. Things like git repositories, FTP details, etc.
  4. Using my decade's worth of expertise, I'll spend time reviewing your WordPress site in detail. I'll cover everything from performance, to security, to code structure. This usually takes about a week.
  5. I'll compile my findings into a custom document full of clear, actionable improvement points for you and your team.

Document contents

My WordPress Site Audit contains (but not limited to, depending on your specific use of WordPress) the following topics:

Initial Thoughts

First impressions count.

While my WordPress Site Audit is primarily technical, I'll advise on the overall design, layout and user experience of your site off the bat.


The biggest source of frustration for a user is when your website takes too long to load.

I'll tell you how to improve performance from the easy wins, to the more complex tasks.


Everyone should be able to access your website equally, regardless of what hardware they're using or any impairment they have.

I'll compile a list of areas where your site's accessibility can be better.

Code Structure

I'll ask for access to your codebase so I can review it's organisation.

Your audit document will include enhancement suggestions for stylesheets, HTML, PHP and JavaScript (where used).

Dependency management

Do you rely on 3rd party dependencies in your project? I'll show you how to manage these more effectively.

Version Control

All software projects should be version controlled and a WordPress project is no exception.

If you already have a version control system in place, I'll review this and advise on upgrades. If you aren't currently version controlling, I'll set you up with a plan.

Deployment Strategy

How are you testing new features? How are you going live with them? How do you roll back to a stable version when things go wrong?

Going without a well thought out deployment strategy is a huge risk when your business relies on your website. I'll tailor a deployment strategy to suit your needs.


WordPress sites get hacked. I'll show you how to protect yourself with a security checklist for your project.

On-Site SEO

I'll teach you how to put in place best practice on-site SEO when creating content for your WordPress site.

Future roadmap

As well as a summary of the findings of my investigation, I'll show you where to start by arranging these in order of priority.

You'll get a list of actionable improvement items specific to your site.

I won't just include the shortcomings of your existing solution, but a roadmap for iterative improvement moving forward.
