Website Migration FAQs

We use a multistep process to ensure your new site is better than your existing site. The site migration process involves establishing tracking, creating and implenting a thorough 301 redirect strategy, documenting existing DNS records and then moving/updating DNS records, and providing you with a complimentary SEO audit after the migration is complete to ensure you’re aware of any gaps the migration mitigated or caused.

Website migration steps include: 

  1. Planning
  2. DNS documentation
  3. DNS migration
  4. 301 Redirect execution
  5. Launch
  6. Post-launch review
  7. Ongoing monitoring

To mitigate SEO loss when migrating your website you need to carefully consider your new website host to ensure they meet the needs of your business now and as you grow, create backups of your current site, migrate your content to the new site, document a site audit of the existing site, determine the urls of the new pages, plan 301 redirects, update DNS records, implement redirects and test the new site, update on-page SEO to coordinate with the old site, update Google Search Console for a site crawl, and monitor for any changes.

Changes in site navigation and structure, downgraded responsiveness and security, and lack of a thorough 301 redirect process and proper on-page SEO can negatively impact SEO. You can mitigate these risks by working with a professional to ensure you don’t lose rankings.

Showit & WordPress are the gold standards. Read more about the best website platforms we suggest, and those we don’t, on the blog.
