Visualization is thus in our SEO Audits key if we want to communcate effectively and here Excel is an underestimated tool.

There are hundreds of tools in the market but they all visualize and set up data differently. This create a clutter of styles, tone of voices and data. Instead you can use Excel to put it all together in one sheet. This allows you to create branded visualizations for you SEO audit.
