Unless you’ve been living like its 2005, you should be aware that the first role of doing SEO is to make sure your website complies with Google’s Webmaster Guidelines. If it is not in line with these guidelines then you can expect to see some issues with its indexation and visibility in the Google search results.
2012 was a year of change for the SEO industry and it already feels as though 2013 will be every bit as turbulent. It has never been more important to ensure your site’s SEO is healthy.
This guide is intended as a comprehensive resource for carrying out a review of your site’s health and SEO performance. It is also designed to ensure that your site is not just healthy now, but will hold up against the promise of more Google algorithm updates and be protected against manual penalties. You can also download my free PDF checklist to use alongside your own SEO health review.

Whilst it is easy to determine which channel is bringing in more traffic to your landing page (let’s say email drives more traffic than advertising), how do you determine which newsletter is more effective? Yours or the online magazines? Or what banner size is most effective? This is where UTM parameters come in to play!
