    I need a good tool to audit a website.

    Backstory: I'm suing my former employer (not asking for legal advice). Last paycheck basically. They are counter-suing me. Long story but one of the claims is that I've cost so much money in lost revenue because I deleted 600 articles (in wordpress). I did do this (had good reason - copyright claims/I was new and they knew I wasn't qualified... they wanted cheap help/boss wasn't available and we were being threatened with being sued). However, if I remember correctly, I offered to fix it (ie. it could be reversed) and was told no. I've noticed some pages that should have been in those deleted pages aren't deleted, are still up, and now under a different author name. This happened like 2 years ago, so I can't remember if it was fixed by the boss or if it went unfixed. I was suing for just my last pay owed. They are suing me for over $100,000. /facepalm.

    So, I'd like to do an SEO audit (preferably free) on the site (with attention paid to deleted pages...) but I'm not sure how to go about that. I want to include it in my answers and I'm working on that this weekend if it says anything contrary to their argument.

    If this is the wrong forum, let me know.

    I can do this for you, if you're still looking for it. My agency has a platform which provides an extensive SEO site audit that we offer for free as a lead generating tactic.

    In the UK. You can infact 'break the law' if you feel that you have a bloody good reason that the owner would agree.

    For example. Someone leaves a dog in the car on a hot day, it looks ill and the police will take ages blah blah - What do you do? Leave the dog to die to smash a window? Most people would take the window out because the owner would do the same etc.....

    Your decision, based on your comments is that you took the choice to protect your employer from being sued and the boss was unable to be contacted? How long and how many times did you try to contact the boss?

    Have you looked at waybackmachine? See what was indexed and if they're still being indexed now but with another author etc.... You don't need every single post but just a sample, just to prove they are still being used etc....Not lost or deleted as the employer is suggesting

    Sounds like he's trying to scare you off and not pay you........ All depends on how hard you really tried to contact the boss and make the choice to bin his site?

    You can run their site archived site on the wayback machine through Screaming Frog. That might help dig in to some of their past fallacies.
