We need a thorough understanding of your website, this will put us in a better position to make recommendations in preparing your site for migration. We strive to learn everything we can about your customers, your competitors, and your industry.
We look at traffic,keyword rankings and backlinks, creating a thorough snapshot of your site’s visibility before the migration. Once the new site launch occurs, this data will be crucial for diagnosing post-migration issues.
We build our strategies with your specific needs in mind. It’s at this point we lay out what we’re going to do and when we’re going to do it.
Redirect Mapping & Link Reclamation
Since migrations largely happen due to site-wide changes to URLs, redirects are another vital element of our work. We will create a master list of redirects from old URLs to new URLs, we cannot stress how important it is to get this part right.
With redirects in place, we review your backlink profile to identify which external websites have links that point to old URLs that no longer exist on your site.
Following the launch of the new site, we perform a final technical audit to see if we must address any ongoing issues.
After the new site migration is complete, we will provide a complete picture of how your site is performing before and after the migration.
