Our service is a bit different than other automated systems. Our handcrafted migration solutions are designed to be handled with care, for well established companies, and to retain existing search engine rank (SEO).
Maintain and Retain your search engine rank and don't lose what you have when migrating.
Bulk uploading 301 redirects notifies search engine crawlers where the new page is located so it is not submitted for index again resulting in the search engine looking at the page as new and duplicate content.
If you have handcrafted metadata on your outdated platform then you may want to move that data to the new platform you want to use. This will ensure the ranking factors are not changed after your migration.
When you move your website many companies will get lazy and not move all pages 1:1. This results in an increase of 404 page not found errors which hurts your overall search engine rank. We prevent these rank killers.
Our SEO retention service allows you to ensure your website migration is 100% complete. We make sure everything is taken care of so you don't have to deal with it. We have saved companies from losing 80-90% of their organic search engine traffic by using these best practices supported by Google Search Console.
SEO retention is a strategy to keep your existing search engine rank when replatforming. Since a new platform will have a different URL structure, you must tell search engines where to find the new URL to keep your existing page rank. If you don’t then you will lose the equity you have built on those pages and will start over or even be penalized for killing the pages without requesting a no-index through your webmaster tools.
If your moving platforms but you don’t have a lot of existing traffic then you will still need to add 301 redirects to all of your pages. When search engines include you in their index and you kill the pages resulting in 404 errors, they lose trust for your domain name and push you even further down.
Yes! Shopify natively allows you to add URL redirects for all pages on their platform. With our service, we use a third-party app that gives us the ability to upload those redirects in bulk using a spreadsheet.
We typically see the new URL paths showing on Google within a week or two depending on if the site has been resubmitted to search engines through webmaster tools. As part of our service we do the resubmissions for you.
No! When you have 301 redirects in place, the person or bot going to one of your old URLs will be redirected instantly to the new page.
Yes! 301 redirects will take users and search engine spiders to the new product or content page. 404 errors happen if someone goes to a link that does not lead to a live webpage. URL redirects prevent this from happening and keep traffic flowing to the right locations when people or bots are trying to access old URL paths.
Yes! Our SEO Retention service is a 1:1 migration of all pages and content to your new platform. We then implement our strategy of old URL paths to new URL paths for ALL pages.
Yes! We use a 404 monitor service to check for any broken URL paths and we fix any problems with migrated pages (if any) to be sure all old paths are redirecting properly to new paths.
