Why is an SEO report important?

When you’re creating an SEO report you want to hit just the right balance. If you make it too long, you’ll be that jerk who wouldn’t shut up at the meeting, and if it’s too short, nobody will understand what you’ve actually been doing.

Making an SEO report is a simple balance. You just need to make sure you can communicate all the key takeaways and data from your work in a clear, concise way without rambling. This means you have to make a lot of decisions about what to include (and exclude) from your SEO reports, which makes questions like these very common:

  • How can I keep it short but communicate my results clearly?
  • What data will my clients care about?
  • What should I even include in a monthly SEO report?

To help you strike the right balance between comprehensive and concise, we have created an SEO report template you can download and use for free right now.

What’s included in the template?
