Even savvy web promoters often reveal multiple on page SEO errors when running a site audit because that’s the problem with on page issues: they're not visible with a naked eye. That is why I urge you run a free site audit check now!

WebMeUp, SEO software house behind the most clean and efficient solution to handle web promotion, today published a study on common on page SEO problems. This study followed the last week's release of WebMeUp Site Audit module, which helped thousands of users uncover and fix site structure and coding errors that slowed down their sites’ indexing and ranking growth. Seven most common SEO issues and ways to avoid and fix them are now available at WebMeUp’s official website.

"I'm running two online projects, one of which is my start-up site and the other one is a blog, and I did an audit check for both of them with WebMeUp," says Amy Stockdale, online entrepreneur and WebMeUp Standard Plan subscriber, who provided data for WebMeUp on page issues research.

"As a result of this check, I was shocked to find the overwhelming number of on page issues I was pointed at. Broken links, pages with too many outgoing links, URL issues, slow load time: I had the whole lot of stuff to fix. I should say that was a great ego-deflating experience because I thought I was quite advanced in site creation and promotion. Luckily, now that I have a full list of my sites’ vulnerabilities I’m on my way to getting rid of all of those to streamline the way search engines index my sites and improve user experience," continued Amy.

7 most common on page SEO issues found as part of WebMeUp on page issues research include:

(1) Broken links (94.6% websites reported the issue)

(2) Duplicate/empty titles and descriptions (reported by 87% websites)

(3) Robots.txt and sitemap (reported by 78.9% of websites)

(4) Poor load time (reported by 65% of websites)

(5) Redirect issues (reported by 57% of websites)

(6) Too many outgoing links (reported by 54% of websites)

(7) Problems with URLs (reported by 51.3% of websites)

"To begin with, we'd like to thank everyone who's been so generous with their time and provided their site audit results to help the whole SEO community make their sites easier to crawl and thus rank higher," says Alexandra Shkalikova, Communications Manager, WebMeUp.

"We at WebMeUp are focused on building a highly efficient and personalized SEO app, so we talk to our customers a lot and know what they're up to. The majority of our customers, just like Amy whose quote you’ve seen above, are pretty geeky in online trends. They have neat, well-designed websites and they’re really good at promoting them," explains Alexandra.

"But even these savvy guys often reveal multiple on page SEO errors when running a site audit because that’s the problem with on page issues: they're not visible with a naked eye. Webmasters are often unaware of them until it’s too late. That is why I urge you run a free site audit check now – these might be most crucial 5 minutes for your site’s online visibility," sums up Alexandra.
