SEO Migrations

Ensuring the smooth transition

Changing website platforms is an inevitable task, as your business and site continues to grow alongside new web technologies. Unfortunately Google needs help understanding your new site, especially with regards to URLs, and a thorough SEO migration program is usually necessary to ensure a seamless transition without traffic or ranking drops. This requires good planning, clear communication, and the right people.

Optimising has been involved in hundreds of website migrations and have the expertise to ensure nothing is missed.

We can be as involved throughout the entire process as preferred, and are happy to liaise with your developer throughout the design and build stage to lend an SEO point of view to discussions.

Our SEO Migration Engagement

We work however you need us to work

We're flexible in terms of when we start to get involved, and how involved we are. 

Generally we like some early involvement, allowing us to put together an audit pre-launch, and complete a full review of the site post-launch.

End-to-end involvement

Throughout the build process, we will be in direct contact with your developer to ensure things are being completed correctly first time, as well as working with you directly to ensure nothing gets overlooked, whether it be technical, structural, or content related.

Formalised Audit

The initial part of this engagement will involve us putting together documentation on outstanding issues (These may have existed in the previous website and have been carried over) for the developer to fix before the new website goes live.

Post Launch

Once the website is launched and all migration-related SEO suggestions have been implemented, we will conduct a review to track how the website is continuing to perform in Google and determine if any additional fixes need to be made.
