Avoid SEO Disaster During a Redesign or Migration

Planning SEO during a redesign or migration can be the difference between launch success or failure.

Website SEO Redesigns

Website redesigns are inevitable and most companies will redesign their website at some point. When they do, it’s critically important to have SEO at the forefront, and part of the process, from the start. If SEO is not given its place, companies could end up going live with a new site structure, new design, or url structure that ends up eradicating years of SEO strength.

Site migrations

Site migrations, domain name changes, CMS migrations, and other forms of large-scale URL migrations bring serious risk if not managed properly from an SEO perspective. Thorough planning, research, precise execution, and then extensive tracking we can ensure a site migration goes smoothly.
