Website migration SEO support
Website migrations are a common activity in today’s ever-changing digital landscape – whether you are changing your service offering, e-commerce system, product catalogue, domain name or perhaps you are deciding that your site needs a complete overhaul to ensure it complies with usage on multiple device types.
If any of the above means you are changing any key attribute to your website, you should consider your migration plan. It’s crucial to adhere to best-practice when undertaking any site migration SEO. This is to ensure that possible traffic and organic visibility loss will be kept to a minimum.
