Website Relaunch Consulting

Protect your SEO during a website redesign.

It’s generally accepted that traffic loss is inherent to any website relaunch. But with proper planning and preparation, you can mitigate nearly any hiccup to your rankings and traffic. To do this you must fully understand what elements of your website are driving traffic in the first place—before you make any design, architecture, or content decisions. Otherwise you put your entire organic visibility at risk.

Why Redesign Protection works.

It’s true that website designers and developers often provide some type of SEO audit as part of a redesign project. Yet, businesses often come to us after relaunching their website and losing valuable traffic and rankings, even though this type of audit was part of the project—so what went wrong?

The reason so many website relaunches fail is that effective SEO elements are often removed, including top-performing content. Jumping into a website redesign without a clear understanding of what is working and isn’t working can lead to unnecessary changes that have major ramifications for your SEO.
