If I don't have existing rank do I still need this?
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.
How long does it take for my new URLs to index?
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.
Will this prevent my new site from having 404 errors?
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.
Do you redirect all pages including content & blog pages?
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.
