Sometimes we have to upgrade our existing website to a different platform. Like php to .net or vice versa. The SEO is very important and we do not want to loose the current Rankings of our web site.  If we follow few instructions then we can move our site without any change in our current SEO rankings and Traffic.

The following Points need to be kept in Mind while doing a site upgrade.

  • Make a list of current URL,s mainly which are indexed in Google. To find out that just type site:yoursitename in Google search box.
  • Make a corresponding list of new urls against the old one.
  • Before taking the new site live , make a .htaccess file and do a 2301 redirect for all the old urls to new one. as shown below

redirect 301 /oldurl.html http://newurl/

Make sure that you don’t remove any old url through Google webmaster.
