Get a WordPress Technical Audit
And make your website safer for you and your customers
Whether it’s called a technical website audit, review, or health-check; having your website looked at by us will ensure that its security is better optimised.
It will identify any small fixes or bigger issues – such as website security inconsistencies – as well as letting you know the areas where your website is doing a sterling job.
A technically sound website is important if you want to:
- Compete effectively online. So when potential customers searching online and comparing your business to your competitors – you’re just as effective – if not more – in driving them to your website.
- Improve website stickiness. Have visitors to your website stick around long enough to make that enquiry, booking or sale – or simply leave your website with a great first impression – and wanting to come back again.
Our website audit is ideal, if:
- You’re thinking about updating your website (A review will ensure that your time and resource is invested in the right areas).
- You want to benefit from a fresh pair of eyes to look at your website and its performance – irrespective of how new or old it is.
- You have a limited budget. And prefer to make any improvements yourself (especially, if you have developed the website yourself).
- You’ve done very little with your website since it was first set up.
- You have limited know-how in web design and backend administration.
Your technical website review will cover 4 key areas
A thorough look at the back-end of your website (the important techy stuff), as install settings left at their default values could lead to potential problems.
A check to see what type of access subscribed and unsubscribed users of your website are given, and will again highlight best practice.
We will determine if the software that your website is using is up to date, such as plugins and WordPress system core. Running outdated software products will attract hackers, who will take advantage of the vulnerabilities they find in old, unmaintained software.
Files and Folders
Every line of every file in your website will be security scanned, looking for hidden malicious code. Websites can be hacked and go undetected for years. You need to protect yourself and have an obligation in law to also protect the users of your website.

I highly recommend Sanzen Digital for their professional, efficient and comprehensive service. Having reviewed my website, they have provided extremely helpful feedback and suggestions to enable me to increase the awareness of my business consultancy services and also improve my website content.
Sarah Flindall, SF Consultancy
Although we have an inhouse marketing resource, we found this external review of our website really valuable. It was surprisingly comprehensive and highlighted areas that will help our website perform better in the long term; along with the added benefit of getting a fresh perspective. I highly recommend you get your website audited by Sanzen – it really is value for money.

It is specifically designed for business owners who use WordPress for their website platfrom. Our review will be carried out within the context of your business objectives, taking into account the specific inner workings of WordPress.
We strongly believe that you will not receive a more comprehensive review anywhere else at this price point.
I already have a technical resource, should I just get them to review my website?
Of course, this is a viable option if you already have an IT person or agency on board. However, having an external review carried out by us – will ensure it’s totally unbiased. In addition, you’ll get the real benefit of having a fresh pair of eyes look at your website. You can then pass on the review and any recommendations for your in-house team to look at.

Will the information I provide you with be kept safe and secure?
Yes. The report itself will be strictly private and confidential. And we follow GDPR guidelines so any sensitive information given to us– which is usually the login details to the backend of your website – will be deleted from our secure systems once the report is sent to you.
How long will it take to receive my report?
We will send you an online PDF of the final report between 4-5 working days of receiving all the information we need. You will be informed by both text and email of its arrival.
Audits can be quite technical and formal, will it be easy to understand?
