Frequently asked questions about migration SEO
What does a migration SEO agency do?
A migration SEO agency manages the transition of a website whether that be due to change in domain, brand or CMS protecting rankings, traffic and revenue.
When do I need a migration SEO agency?
You should enlist the help of a migration SEO agency as early as possible when planning a large website change such as a CMS migration, a rebrand or redesign. This will allow more time for consultancy and gives you the flexibility to make changes before they are live.
Alternatively, if you have already gone through this change and it’s impacted traffic and conversions, there may be some underlying crawlability and indexability issues.
Migrations can be a tumultuous time and, if handled incorrectly, can negatively impact your website’s performance. If you think something is awry, it’s always best to consult a technical SEO agency to get to the root cause.
How long does a website migration take?
Successful website migrations can take time to plan and execute: six months to a year, in some cases. It can be quicker, depending on the scope of the website, but we still like to have a 2-3-month window before going live.
Will my website be down during the website migration process?
A website migration launch should be a seamless transition, which doesn’t involve your website going offline. Depending on the back-end complexities, your website may strategically go down in the early morning hours, but this would be managed by your website development agency.
Why are website migrations tricky?
Even if wholesale changes aren’t being made during a migration, it’ll always take two or three months for Google to understand the changes made. Providing SEO consultancy throughout the process, we’ll advise how the website should be built and what critical technical actions are needed for organic visibility to go unaffected.
