OnPage SEO audits –statistics and trends

After the realization of over 100 OnPage SEO audits in 2016, we from the Serpact team decided to gather all the data and analyze it. In this way we managed to make several important conclusions that we are going to mention in this post. Also, this helps us to understand what is the current trend in the business and to what extent people rely on it. Last but not least, we compare the data from the audits + implementation of  the audits and those without such data.
