    I appreciate andy for compiling such a nice checklist. I am a CTO, we have certain SEO people joining and leaving our company, so this checklist would do wonders for me.

    I particularly like 5, 6 and 18. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had attendees who don’t even know their CMS capabilities, and lo and behold, they discover it’s not SEO friendly. But you also did well to mention looking at XML files and the robots.txt files.

    This is a great list that, to me, satisfies the old saying “Trust, but verify.”

    Thank you so much for putting this together.

    Great list to follow! Let me add one thing I always do
    Whenever I consider bringing on a new client for SEO I will run their website content through Copyscape to see if there is duplicate content floating around.

    Many business owners hire website designers that just cut and paste content from all over the internet and they are unaware of this. In other cases, we find that others have stolen their content. Either way, we want to know so we can take action and upload unique content.
