One of the SEO services that website owners need is assistance when migrating their website.

Migrating a website if it is not well organized can cause serious damage to organic traffic and compromise the entire SEO campaign.

What is migration and the various types?

Migration is the temporary or definitive process that occurs on a website when establishing a:

  • Graphic migration : graphic restyling (example: replacement of WordPress templates);
  • CMS / Technology migration : CMS replacement (example: switching from Joomla to WordPress; from asp to php; etc.);
  • Domain migration : transition from an old domain to a new one;
  • Hosting / IP migration : change of hosting or IP address;
  • URL migration : modification of the URL structure of a site (example: change from parametric to static URLs);
  • Content migration : changes to the content architecture (example: moving articles to new categories);
  • Https migration : passage from http protocol to https (and vice versa).

The various types of migration can occur individually or simultaneously, for example when it is decided to modify all these aspects.

Ideally one should think about the consequences of any migration and manage them, at the same time as you start thinking about doing it.

In any case, the greater the types of migration to deal with, the greater the commitment, the amount of analysis and the management from the SEO point of view.

  2. Manuals : are provoked by the Google antispam team, usually due to reports from users.
